coasting and ignoring

I lost a measley fourth of a pound this week. I weighed 307.75. I feel like I am coasting. I need to stop coasting and put forth more effort.

Saturday is TOPS fun day, about an hour away. I am looking forward to it.

My throat is sore :(

I am in the midst of a HUGE bake sale fund raiser for school. I need to tape my mouth shut while I cook. yikes!

It's 1:20 p.m.... good morning!

I'm kind of quirky, I guess.

I just started my day off on the wrong foot. Just..yuck! And so at 12:40, I had accomplished pretty much nothing and felt like poo.

So, I napped. Kind of.

Lay in bed with my eyes closed and drifted in and out of conscienciousness (sp?) and spent about 20 minutes in that place that is between awake and asleep.

As I lay, I pray in my head. kind of.

Like I said, weird day.

I thought positive thoughts and told myself that I was going to restart my day when I woke.

Then the phone rang.

I answered the phone and then started my day as if it were 8 a.m. Brushed my teeth and brushed my hair and started on my flylady list.

So, now I am here for my "morning computer time". And feeling much better :)

I hope you are having a great day and if you aren't, I give you permission to lie down for a bit and start over. ;)

Anonomous comment from 2 days ago

Dear Anonymous,
I know. I *think* I AM being serious and then I fall on my face. At least I continue to get back up. I realize I am yo-yoing and I am not proud of it.

well, that was dumb

Went to the store and bought ice cream and brownie mix. Threw my self control out the window and fixed myself a 900+ calorie peanut butter and fudge sundae.

I am now very hungry for green beans. LOL I will have some with supper.

That gave me a very short lived sugar high and now I am in a sugar low, I'm guessing, by the way I feel.

Anyway..............just being honest.

However, I am still not over calorie limit, so the day is not lost.

sugar and water (but not together)

My 40 days of "nothing with sugar as the first ingredient" fast is over as of today! yay!

Guess what I found out? Lots of sugar loaded stuff DOESN'T have sugar as a first ingredient. Such as ice cream. yes, I was able to eat ice cream. And I blame the 3 pounds I gained during the fast partially on ice cream. (that, and we ate a lot of fast food while working the fireworks stand)

I can only think of 4 things that were forbidden (sugar listed as first ingredient) that I've wanted in the past 40 days:

1. candy bars (couldn't find a single one without sugar listed first)
2. little debbies (sugar sugar sugar)
3. brownies (no wonder they taste so good)
4. cookies (yep..I stood in the aisle at the store and checked about 20 packages. sugar is first)

so.............tonight.........before I go to bed........I plan to have one of the above things. *big smile*

but I only need to buy ONE. I know how I am.

Now.......on to the water aspect of this post.

I have quit drinking it. Not good.

The less you drink it, the less you want it.

Sean has started a 3 week challenge beginning Monday. Drink 64 ounces per day. I think it is the push I need.

Ok.................still not much in the blogging mood.......need to get around and go to the library.......but it's raining, so I'm not very motivated. Plus I will have to put air in my tire.

ta ta for now :)

Not in the mood.

I know I haven't been here.

I *have* been super busy (we ran a fireworks stand for our church) but I have also been bored with blogging.

Have you ever been there? The new just wore off?

So....I'll blog a bit here and there when it hits me.

In the meantime, I'm staying busy trying to enjoy my summer which is quickly flying by!

Have a great summer!
