DH was at the doctor's office longer than expected. He got home about 6:20 with the LIttle girl. He was steaming mad, because her mother didn't do the head lice treatment, instead put some foul smelling oil on it...was she thinking it would suffocate the lice, IDK.

We ate the spaghetti that was over an hour old, but it was still good. I helped the little girl with her homework all the while trying not to gag on her hair smell. We read for about 20 minutes and it was time fo rher to go home.

DH was still mad about her hair so he called the school this morning. The school in turn sent the little girl home. He later received a text from his exwife telling him how the little girl hates him because they were having a field day and dress down day and she was missing it. Your daughter hates you! I told him to text her back and tell her, well she should hate you for not taking care of her. ALAS I would have also texted, well that sounds about right, her priorities are just as screwed up as yours are!! And it goes without saying I think the little girl is not going to pass fourth grade, so instead of having a field day, they should be in there trying to teach the little girl something! Really? I just don't understand some people's parenting skills. This just keeps get harder, I thought it would eventually ease up...but it hasn't yet and I'm not sure how much more I can stand.

DH promptly fell asleep in the recliner afer the little girl left and I was watching cooking shows and playing on my phone. I decided I was hungry at 8:45 and had a peice of bread with a tablespoon of peanut butter. I need to keep that stuff out of my house.

B: english muffin with peach mango jam

L: turkey bacon BLT, orange

S: 1/2 peanut butter sandwich

I'm not sure what dinner will be, DH is on his way to the dentist, I guess it will be something soft. He then has an appointment on Friday to get a tooth pulled.

Tomorrow is the first 5 mintue running interval, I hope it doesn't hurt too bad.

Have a great evening!

Good luck with the head lice! And the mother. That sounds like a tough situation.

DH and I got up and started week 4 of the c25k. We ran for 4 minutes straight!! I  was feeling pretty good the first 4 minute leg, but was really huffing and puffing during the second one. DH tripped on the uneven sidewalk and took a dive, he caught himself, but still I hated to hear him fall. He said his ankle hurt a little today.

The hours between 8:00-9:30 have been really bad at work, I have had a hard time staying awake. I guess this would be a good time to get a little extra walking in...maybe tomorrow if it happens.

Another bad day at work, people here do not like change at all and show their rigidity when it is time to impliment the changes we have talked about for the last 6 months. Come on people!

Dinner last night was a parmesan encrusted fish fillet and what was supposed to be salad....but when I got home from work I noticed an odd smell and determined it was coming from the garbage disposal: DH grabbed a bowl and put ice in it, then poured bleach it in and dumped it down the garbage disposal and turned it on....It seemed to work pretty good. Well in DH's haste to make the salad he forgot to rinse out/wash the bowl and the salad was dressed in bleach water. This is not appetising folks, I dont't recommend this. LOL

DH has a doctor's appointment after work and then he is getting the little girl. I will have an hour or so home a lone until they get there.

B: english muffin

D: parmesan encrusted fish fillet on a bun with salad, apple pieces

S: 1/2 peanut butter on thin round bread

D: spaghetti tonight with salad. I get to make this...not often I get to cook.

Hope you all have a great evening!

So weekend was crazy! Little girl and I got up and drove to Bedford to walk in our 5K volksmarch lots of thoughts going on here. First is OMG it seems so far, how am I ever going to run this? the second is OMG why did I bring my dog, he wants to smell and piss on everything and the third is OMG why did I bring the little girl, she is like how much further, how much longer, my feet hurt. I told her to listen to her ipod, her response was my ears are hot. OMG I was fixing to lose my patience with her and the dog, but I kept my cool. I was so proud that she finished and in the long run she was happy that she went, so was I. Dog not so much, he stays home next time.

Afterwards, we met DH at his work place and went to lunch. I decided to have blueberry pancakes which were awesome!

we made another library book sale, I picked up more books, cook books, DVDS and CDs, I still think those sales are rediculously cheap. I think we have enough books for awhile.

Saturday night I thought we had tickets to watch a minor league baseball game, but it turns out the tickets are for May 30th instead, that was a bust! I guess we'll wait until May 30th to go.

Sunday DH woke up with an upset stomach and it was raining so it postponed our c25K, the rain let up and we took off to a Nature fest that was also a bust, not well attended, maybe because of the rain or not much advertisement, but we didn't stay long. NOTE TO SELF: wear sneakers when going to a nature preserve so I can walk around and enjo y it... NO FLIP FLOPS!!

the bad, we found that the little girl has head lice again, or maybe she's never gotten rid of it, I can't tell. I just get so pissed off. I texted her mother a picture of the lice on the back of the child's shirt. SERIOUSLY???? She is over there every freaking day and you don't notice this disgusting ****? Why don't you take care of this girl? She never texted back. WHen she came to pick her up DH went outside to talk with her, her reply was no one in the house has it!!! WTF ever, lady there is no way. She had scabs that are more than a week old, probably never healed from the last time. I am still furious. She is supposed to stay at our house for the entire week in the middle of June. I told her if she had headlice when she came over, I was cutting the **** off. She can hate me for the rest of her life, but she is not bringing headlice into my house. I also probably shouldn't have said this, but I told her If I got headlice I was going to go over there and kick her mother's ass. We will see how this plays out. I feel like bugs are crawling in my hair right now.

After the little girl went home DH and I finished the third week of the c25K, it was so hot!! but we managed to get through the whole three minutes of running....twice. Tomorrow morning we start in with the 4 minutes of continuous running. Running in the morning is so much better!

Eating could have been better, but it wasn't bad except for the ice cream we ate Saturday night in lieu of the baseball game.

Dinner was teriaki chicken, green beans and salad.

Today, sucked at work, I swear there are always those individuals that make me say...what, are you 2? You are a freaking grown adult, act like it! Sometimes i hate people! today was one of them.

B: English muffin

L: left over chicken, salad

D: fish, salad

DH didn't buy snacks, so no snacks for IP.

Have a great night. IP

Doctor's appointment went ok, all blood work and test results were normal. Cholesterol was 158 YAY!! must thank the vegetables. BP was 125/70 - really? must thank the exercise! She mentioned my weight and I told her I was working on it with my c25k and eathing heathier, we will see in 6 months. DH had a dental appointment so I picked up a chicken wrap from the diner.

D: chicken, ranch wrap, potato salad

We have a very busy weekend. Tomorrow we are going on a volksmarch (if it doesn't rain) in a few cities over, never been to Bedford, OH, will be checking it out tomorrow. The little girl is coming wth because DH has to work until noon. We are then going to another library book store and finishing the day off with a minor league baseball game. Sunday after c25K  there is a pancake breakfast and a nature fest at a local park. We have all these things on the calendar, we can do them or not!

B: English Muffin

L: left over Chinese food from work, mixed vegetables, fried rice and a few pieces of chicken in peanut sauce

D: TBD - no clue what we will eat.

Tuesday DH and I got up and did our c25k, it was so much better doing it in the morning. No aches or pains this day. I did notice that running is very mental. When we first started I would stare at my phone counting down the seconds to stop! It seemed like it lasted forever. Tuesday, I put the phone in my pocket and just waited, the time seemed to go by faster, no more anticipation, so I thought it was a good session.

Lunch, was a turkey bacon BLT on whole wheat, orange

S: dried pineapple

D: vegetable stir fry with golden curry sauce and a garden salad with orange vinegrette dressing

S: yogurt covered raisons

Wednesday started off ok, but sitting at work I started getting a migraine, which I'm sure is weather related. First I got the aura, the sparkling little lights that appear in my peripheral vision, then comes the light sensitivity and noise amplification so before the nausea hit I left work. Think of a knife jabbing in your eye, twisting your brain and scraping the back side of your scull. Horriffic!!  I just got home and fed the dog and gathered up my blanket (it was 48 out) to close the world out when I heard the garage door start lifing. At first I'm thinking, how is that possible, does someone else's garage door opener work on my garage door. The dog started barking so I got up and opened the door to see. My DH came home too. I'm like OMG what are you doing home, to which he replies...What are you doing home. It was comical. He said I opened the garage door and saw your car and thought DAMN, I'm caught! It was bittersweet because I kinda wanted the house to myself, but I like sitting here with you as well. I told him I would be sleeping to try to get rid of my headache. I slept for about 2 hours and then got up. I hate how my head is sore after a migraine.

B: English muffin with peach-mango jam

L: 1/2 peanut butter on whole wheat

DH left about 3:00 to pick up the little girl. When they got back she read and worked on her homework project. We left at 5:30 to go to what I thought was a class and dinner, but was a class and samples. We had gazpancho (which I thought tasted like salsa with no jalpenos), ratatouille bake (eggplant, zuccini, tomato, peppers, onions & garlic) with cheese tortilini and orange marmalade brussel sprouts. Two of the recipes we will be using at home. DH did not like the brussel sprouts, he said our recipe was better, I thought so too. Because they were just samples, we had to feed the little girl, so we stopped at Arbys and let her eat a chicken sandwich before she went home.

Thursday we were up again to go for our week 3 day 3 session, which was the same as last time, the only thing today was 38 degrees, so DH said he wasn't going. I told him to stay in bed then, i would go by myself. He relunctantly got up and came along. I asked him if his body hurt, he said no, but my hands are cold. I can't believe it is so cold. I have come to the conclusion that you just roll with the weather. Keep a jacket in the car at all times. Apparently it really doesn't bother him as he has lived here in this city his entire life, except the three years he was in the military. I had clothes on with no pockets so I had to force myself not to look at the remaining time. Some how this program forgot the 2:00 minute mark, because we ran from 1:30 minutes to 2:30 minutes and that extra minute seemed like it lasted forever. I was looking ahead and see the 2:00 minutes arrives next week. Mind games...all of it! No pain today, so I'm feeling the slowly but surely vibe. It is hard sometimes when I think back and remember how there was a time when I could run 7.3 miles a day. I would get up on the weekends and go for a run. When you gain weight it gets harder so you just stop all together. I still have my shirt bib and time card when I finished the Kole Kole half marathon in Hawaii, so I know I can do this, I just have to overcome! It sucks letting yourself get so fat.

B: English muffin with nature's best fake butter (not a fan) but Dh makes the toast so I don't complain

L: 1/2 turkey on swiss (this is the last of the turkey meat in the refrigerator), lettuce & tomato

I am leaving today to go to a doctor's appointment. Dreading this! Have a great day!

Yesterday we had meat! DH grilled turkey burgers, which were actually very tasty and not dry at all. All in all I wasn't missing meat too much.

Got all the laundry finished and changed the bed sheets.

B: English muffin with almond butter ( i do not like almond butter)

S: pineapple

L: left over turkey burger

S: 1/2 peanut butter sandwich on one side of bagel

During the weekend, I found a work book the little girl should have taken home with her last Tuesday and I was furious. We just had this conversation about her turning in her homewok. How can she turn in the homework when the workbook was at the house for 3 extra days. DH texted the ex and she eventually came and got it, all she said is we couldn't find it, we didn't even think about asking you! This from the person who said she checked her homework each night! Well how? I was telling DH it might benefit her if they held her back a year. He cannot do the work for her, she must do it for herself. Oh well, hopefully this drama will work itself out.

No plans for dinner tonight I'll figure this out on the ride home, can't waste that 45 minutes on nothing.

Have a great evening! IP

Good morning everyone and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms!!

I missed yesterday, but this is OK. I didn't feel good and I was PMSing BAD!! My hands and feet were so swollen I had to take a diuretic just so I could put some shoes on. DH and I tried to go to garage sales but it seemed that all the ones that had signs up were already closed because we only found three...and bought nothing!

We then came home and took a nap, DH was up early for work and I just bummed around the house. It was supposed to be Week 2 Day 3 of our 5k2c but after yard work we just couldn't get motivated to go!

SO we did it this morning. I must say after the break and maybe because it was morning, I really enjoyed it today....and I hurt no where, so that extra day off was a miracle for me!

I haven't been eating too well this weekend but have been drinking lots of fluid.

Do not have a menu planned today, but will get on it for lunch and dinner for the week.

I had a salad with cranberries and apples from Wendy's that was really tasteful. I had some pizza with DH yesterday too.

Have a great Sunday everyone! Be kind to yourselves! IP

It's so nice when there's no pain! Lately I am battling some ankle pain and once it gets better I am going to work on strengthening and weights for my legs instead of cardio until I am feeling better about my ankle.

DH didn't want to get up this morning and do our running. He said his back hurt. Well he's been saying that for over a year now, blaming it on the mattress. We saved money for a new mattress but have yet to go shopping for it, so I guess his back will continue to hurt. I wanted to do it this morning because it was 67 degrees. Now, I will surely be having difficulties with 84 when we get home.

Needless to say I'm very frustrated to say the least. I will just stay off the scale, because I am seeing NOT benefits on the scale going meatless and/or running! To be truthful I'd rather just have a big ole greesy hamburger and to hell with running. However I really want to run on the 4th of July so I will keep trudging on...

D: bean and cheese quasadilla with lettuce, tomoato, onion, salsa and avacado

We took the little girl to her book mark class, we were the only ones who showed up so it was over quickly.. We then sat at a picnic table and read her homework and then took her home.

B: toast with fake butter

S: bagel thin with peanut butter

L: hummus, mushrooms, mixed greens and tomato on whole grain bread

Dinner is TBD.

I guess we will try to run in the hot weather.

Tomorrow we are scheduled to go to another town to their gazebo walk with different crafts and vendors, we will see how that goes.I really need to stay home and clean house a little, especially if my mom popps in unexcpectedly.

Have a great night!

I don't know if you checked out the entry on plant-based eating I put up on the forum, but the big mistake some people make when eating "vegan" is that they still eat the same amount of fat/calories (or more) as they would eating meat/dairy. They also mistakenly eat high-fat, processed "vegan" foods.

As Dr McDougall says, "The fat you eat is the fat you wear!"

I don't have anything against any way that people eat. His program is worth looking into if eating low-fat, plant-based interests you.

I hope you figure out what works for you!

Innerpeace on 05/10/2015:
Yes I read it. I will relook at what we are eating. I didn't think we were eating too much processed food.

OhioRaven on 05/09/2015:
I would stick to the plan anyway. With or without the Hubster. You've got to be good to yourself. I see you eat bread stuff often. Have you ever thought about going Breadless ?

Yesterday was the hardest running day of all, I didn't  think I would make it. Running? It is more or less a trot, but I'm moving so I'll take it. The last running interval ending a block from my house, I didn't think I could make it back to the house and I was just walking. My back hurt so bad. DH was ahead of me and trotted the extra few yards home. I will stick with it though, I really want to do this. At least I'm not hurting the day after, DH's knee is still giving him trouble.

D: Knorr's pasta sides with steamed broccoli and cauliflower and a garden salad with light orange vinigrette (a bagged salad from Wal-Mart) it was really refreshing and tasty.

S: tropical fruit smoothie with apple juice

After dinner DH went and got some more water and some banana, while I tried to recover from the running we did.

B: tropical fruit smoothie with apple juice

S: whole wheat bagle with peanut butter

L: pita pocket with hummas, cauliflower and tomato

D: is supposed to be bean burritos with salsa. Lettuce, tomators & alvocado

The little girl has a class a the library tonight to make a pressed flower book mark. After we are taking the dog to the dog park and then dropping her off at home. I can see a diet doctor pepper in my future.

Have a great day.IP

I got home and made some black bean and corn salsa. I also made a alvocado and corn salad with honey lime dressing. When DH got home he grilled cheese quesadillasi in a wheat tortilla and we ate those with the black bean salsa. It was very tasty.

I helped the little girl with her homework and DH took a shower. After they left and went to read to the dog while I did the dishes. It was kinda chilly last night with the rain coming in. He took her home.
