6 days

And the countdown begins… My mom leaves next Monday morning- since I won’t be around to see her off then Sunday is my last day with her. How’s it been? Insane. Tiring… I have chauffered that woman all over town cuz now all of a sudden she’s too “scared” to drive. Last night around 5:30 pm, after been gone for over 5 hours I say I’m done I want to go home and get my laundry done and rest- and she starts arguing with me then asks for my car and I say no way- at first you were scared to drive now you want my car? AND at night? OH NO NO NO… NOOOOOO! Don’t get me wrong- I love my mom, but she’s exhausting lol.

So get home- get two loads done (I have one left but not a big deal I’ve got tons to wear now apparently lol) and get some time in with my fids (feathered kids) and my sister hung out with hubby and me on our bed for like an hour- we ate some popcorn and watched COPS and laughed at people. Those people seriously are HILARIOUS, the things they do. One dude last night got caught with drugs and said he was part of the “task force” and the cop was like I’m part of the task force- I know you aren’t. lol!

Anyways- it’s funny cuz yesterday I tried on a pair of 14s, you know, some motivation, and I could get them up- but not zipped- darn… lol. I was like got to stick to the plan and be good SPECIALLY during this week! So yesterday while my mom was on the phone I decided to restart the c25k but at my OWN pace. I don’t even remember how the program goes but I started out with a 5 minute warmup, then I’d run for 30 seconds then walk for a minute. I did this part for 20 minutes, and then at 25 minutes I walked until 30 minutes. And you know what? I felt good. I did it all, I didn’t stop, and best of all I ran at a 4.0 pace! I’ve never been able to do that! So I guess I am getting better at this running thing!!

So beerab’s c25k plan consists of this:
Warm up 5 minutes
Run 30 seconds, walk 1 minute, repeat till you hit 25 minutes
Cool down 5 minutes

I will gradually increase the running time- next week I’m going to do 45 seconds running, then one minute walking. :) I think if I just go SLOOOOWWW I won’t burn out like I have been. And my left leg was hurting afterwards (but feels fine today) so I’m going to aim for at least 3x this week and 2 days of weight exercises (I found my old mat so I’m going to try the 30DS finally).

Weigh in this morning again at 207.5, which I’m not the least bit upset cuz I’m on TOM- makes sense. Just hoping this week to maintain since I know Thursday I will be enjoying turkey AND pumpkin pie!

Have a great day everyone! I’m off to read your blogs :D

Sunday Update

It’s been a crazy few days- sorry I haven’t blogged at all :( I miss you guys!

How have I been? Exhausted. I’ve taken my mother all over town to take care of shopping and so on. Kohls, Walmart, Target, for a bra fitting (cuz seriously my mom isn’t wearing the right size at all), to her doctor appointments, and so on. Today I’m going grocery shopping for everything we need for thanksgiving and the rest of the week. It’s going to be 10 of us- a pretty decent size- I’m like gah where are we all going to sit?! So far for sure there will be 8 of us, that we can squish in, but ten no way.

How is dieting going you ask? How is exercising? Eh don’t ask… Dieting isn’t TERRIBLE but it’s not the greatest- calorie-wise and so on I am doing like 1500-1600 a day, but carbwise it’s not good since my mom cooks a lot of dishes with carbs and won’t let me cook- I won’t lie I’m not complaining too much AND I miss my mom’s cooking! I haven’t had her food in almost 2 years, so I’m not too fussed. She leaves on the 30th anyways and then it’s back to business.

Exercise hasn’t been too great- only worked out 2 days so far and only 20 minutes cuz I’m TOTALLY exhausted. But I weighed in yesterday and was 207.5 so I’m not that far off on weight or anything. I’m close to the lowest I’ve been and that’s good enough for me for the moment.

Called my doctor- still no news on the medication- frankly I’m getting pissed- I guess I’m destined to just be tired forever. Been sleeping an average of 10 hours a day since I’ve been off- still exhausted because it’s not GOOD sleep… Monday when I call I’ll also ask for a referral for another sleep study. I’m going to have my prescription done through my work’s online prescription plan so that I can get it all at once vs just a month at a time. Just waiting on that damn approval…

Anyways- that’s all ladies- off to catch up with you!

H1N1 vaccine

My work offers the H1N1 vaccine currently to all employees, it’s available during work hours and you don’t lose pay to go get it- your supervisor has to let you go, etc. The county WANTS everyone to get this vaccine. So yesterday I got off work early and got my vaccine. I swear I never ever react to shots well- even the Tetanus shot makes me ill!

I got the shot- and immediately started to feel funny. The nurse told me if I get certain symptoms go straight to the doctor, but I just started to feel kind of faint, I didn’t faint but I basically just got to my car (with hubby) and pushed the seat back a bit. Then the aches started to happen, which the nurse said was totally normal. That night I felt very nauseous- ANOTHER side effect. I was able to get down some dinner (oh man mom’s cooking *drool*) and barely could stay up through biggest loser! Which I’ll talk about in a second. I slept well but in the morning my fingers felt slightly swollen, like if I didn’t drink enough water, but I know I did, I had at least 6 glasses of water just at home! That’s in addition to my normal 3-4 while at work. Got dressed, felt a little blah- but I kept on, brushed my teeth, and walked out the door with hubby. As soon as he started to pull out I was like OMG STOP! Ripped open the door and yacked… *sigh* DISGUSTING man… After I yacked and hubby tried to make me stay home (which I refused) I went back inside, rinsed my mouth, grabbed a piece of gum, and came back. Actually after that I felt better and feel fine now. Still slightly achey, but better than nothing. All in all I am glad that I got the vaccine and to be honest that’s NOT the worst experience I’ve had with a vaccine. Tetanus is way worse…

Anyways- If you haven’t watched Biggest Loser then move on cuz I’m going to give spoilers! I thought it was a good show last night- the makeovers were great- everyone looked beautiful! Rebecca looked so much better- I hated her other haircut lol. And the black was too dark for her. But she looked AMAZING afterwards- I thought it was so sweet when she cried at her marathon.

I was really surprised at Amanda- 9 lbs! Was it just my imagination or did all the girls look REALLY good? I mean they looked so tiny to me now- I was like are they wearing spanx?! lol. Even all the guys look so good- Danny’s my favorite- I cried during his speech- my husband thinks I’m nuts- but he doesn’t get it- I could relate to everything they all said, being overweight all their lives, not feeling good enough, etc. And when Liz talked about watching the biggest loser while eating- I’ve done that! Anyways- they all are so inspirational to me- I want to be able to run too- like Rebecca AND Mrs. Fat Pants (yes you), I wanted to workout yesterday but the nausea wasn’t allowing it. Today for sure I will get that workout done. :) Just ten minutes- maybe longer… ;)

Yesterday was WW3 at my house. My mom starts telling my sister that her and I need to take my mom’s name off our cars (she cosigned). Then she tells my sister she doesn’t want to pay her cell phone bill anymore, and then “reminds” my sister when she graduates and gets a job she’s not paying for her health insurance anymore and so on. Of course my sister is like WHY are you telling me this now while I’m getting ready for school?! My sister’s starting to get mad and then my mom sees it as we just want to use her for money- so my mom starts saying that- and my sister gets mad and is like wtf leave me alone- I’m not talking to you- they get into a screaming match and my sister grabs her stuff and leaves. At 8 am I get a phone call from my sister. When I answer I can tell she’s upset and I’m thinking oh gawd what happened? She tells me what happened and I’m like don’t worry about mom- she’s just acting nuts- go to school and it’ll be okay. Then my mom calls and tells me what happened- I asked my mom why all of a sudden she wants her name off our cars- and for us to do that we’d have to refinance- my car has less than 2 years of payments on it and I’ve never missed ONE payment, and there is no way my sister can re-fi because she isn’t working full time. Then my mom says “oh I didn’t know you’d have to refinance, nevermind…” GAH! Then I ask her what’s up with the third degree on bills all of a sudden? She’s like oh well I’m just saying…. I told her mom just leave it alone- you make more than enough money (who in these bad economic times saves HALF their paycheck at minimum a month?!) and you supported me through college (and actually spent a LOT more for me than my sister) so what’s the big deal? When she tried to mention I was using her for money I told her that it was so rude for her to say that when because of me she was able to get this job and she should remember that. Without me no one would have taken care of the kids and my father wouldn’t have done it unless my mom gave him like $3,000 a month at MINIMUM. My mom sure as heck doesn’t pay me for my time! She pays the mortgage and her bills and we take care of everything- I think it’s a fair trade. No matter what she’d still have to pay her mortgage… So she eventually calmed down and I told her I had to go back to work. When my sister got home I could tell she was mad still but she didn’t say much. So hopefully no more melt downs for the rest of the vacation…

Oh and I found a food scale I liked:

It’s about $25 and holds up to 6.6 lbs, I’m going to see if I can find one with a higher capacity but so far this seems to be the one I’m going to go with.

Got a busy day- kits to make, papers to prepare, and so on. Tomorrow and Friday I’m taking off to take my mom to the doctor and spend some time with her. Have a good day everyone! :)

Does this blog make me look fat?

Haha couldn’t help the title- but honestly I’m not really happy with how I look in the photos :( It’s just more affirmation for me to get my butt into gear- as much as I have lost it’s barely a dent compared to how much I have to lose. I am 209 this morning- I ate well yesterday and drank a ton of water!

My mom’s friend invited her over for dinner- I was going to drop her off but she insisted I stay- I was like sure no problem- I actually hadn’t even had 500 calories by then- yesterday I was so busy at work. She’s actually lost a lot of weight and told me she’s been cooking healthier the past few years. For dinner she made a salad with romaine, cucumber, and tomato sprinkled with lemon and the morton’s lite salt. Then she also made dolma- and if you don’t know what dolma is- well let me tell you- it’s HEAVEN. It’s a middle eastern dish (they also make it in Greece) and basically you take spices, rice, meat, veggies, and either use tomato sauce or yogurt and mix it all up. Then you take a grape leaf (the big ones that look like stars) and put a small portion in the leaf and wrap it up. People also use the onion skin, whole tomato’s, zucchini, mini eggplants, you name it you can use it! It’s all put in layers into a large pot, some water is added, and it’s cooked on the stove all day- and when it’s done- oh yeah! This picture BARELY does it justice!

Okay enough of that! lol.

Here are a few photos from the wedding- unfortunately I’m not really that happy with how I looked so I didn’t put too many.

Here’s the area where we had the ceremony- the minister is the bride’s brother- got ordained just for this- I think it’s sweet- he’s wearing the black with red. I love how her bridesmaid’s colors got progressively darker- from ivory all the way to red :D

Yay married and running down the aisle!

Here we are at our table eating dinner- hubby looks great- me- eh…

Sorry just don’t feel like posting much more. :( It’s funny before I was more accepting of how I looked- but I guess as we lose weight and pictures still come up with this weight it’s like I look like that STILL?! *sigh*

Anyways- I’m not getting discouraged- I’m plowing along- I’m going to keep going and I’m not giving up! These pictures just let me know I still have a long ways to go- and with the holidays coming up I am STILL determined to lose weight! My New Year’s Goal now is to be in onederland by January first. I think I can get there- that’s technically 10 lbs from now, I think I can do it since I saw 205 last Thursday.

That’s all for today- off to read some blogs- have a nice day everyone!

Good Morning Fellow Bloggers!

Oh man sorry I have not blogged since when? Last Wednesday?! I have just been SOOOO busy! I’ll do a quick recap today then I will have photos tomorrow I PROMISE!!

Thursday was a more relaxing day for me- I first went to the laundromat (or however it’s spelled) and got our blankets washed in those huge 55 gallon washers. Then after that the day was all me :D I went to see the nutritionist and I actually really liked her- she said overall I made good choices and gave me a breakdown chart of recommended portions good for my height and weight. She recommended 1200-1500 calories like I have been doing- and said on average from the two weeks I gave her I was eating about 1400-1450 a day. She also noticed days I got more protein for breakfast I did better overall that day. She also recommended that I snack in between breakfast and lunch because usually I don’t eat for like 4-5 hours between breakfast and lunch- which yeah makes sense cuz sometimes I am STARVING when lunch comes around. She also asked me about working out- and I told her that I try but am not good at it- so she asked if I can give 10 minutes a day. I said ten minutes? I can do that! She said yup most people go oh ten minutes? That’s it?! And then when they do their ten usually find they want to keep going- and if they don’t- well then at least you did 10 minutes… I understood her logic- so I was like yeah I’d be one of those people who would go longer… That sneaky nutritionist :p I have a follow up with her in January. So she gave me some great tips that starting today I’m following- yay!

After that went and got my hair cut- love the new cut it’s so CUTE :D My hair dresser loves me cuz I always change it up- I’m not the same old boring “just a trim please…” After that went next door and got my eyebrows waxed and a manicure and pedicure… OH YEAH… felt good but I have ticklish feet so when she was doing that callous scrape I kept laughing lol. I got my nails painted a dark gold color- they were fabulous- I didn’t take a picture darn lol- now they are kind of chipped- I know for sure a mani should last longer than a few days- but whatever- you get what you pay for. The mani/pedi as $36 and the eyebrows + upper lip waxing was $13. The haircut with tip was $42.

Friday morning we got up and hubby needed new clothes and shoes for the wedding so we popped over to Kohls and he got some nice shoes, new slacks, new undershirts, a dress shirt, a belt, and black socks. I found a bra to use with my dress and then I also got some cute shoes to match as well. Then up we went to Orange County! It was a smooth ride overall- I drove (which made it smoother lol) and we got to the hotel around 2 pm. The wedding didn’t start till 6:30 pm so we just spent some quality time together… ;) And then we watched TV and got ready.

The wedding was BEAUTIFUL- the bride was beautiful- the groom was hilarious (we were friends of the bride), he kept messing up his lines when the minister was speaking lol. At one point he tried to kiss the bride DURING the ceremony and the minister (who was the bride’s brother- got ordained just for this) was like “uh uh! You can’t do that until I tell you to!” lol.

That morning I weighed in at 205- a number I haven’t seen since the days of Moses… Okay well maybe not THAT long ago- but you get my drift! I felt great and the dress fit perfectly but omg- at the wedding- there was so much variety of food! They had a cheese TABLE and a vegetable table. I attacked the veggie table first so that I wouldn’t load up on too much other stuff. Had some cheese, then they didn’t have a sit down dinner so hubby and I went over to the buffet line and we had a bit of everything they offered- potstickers (soo good), egg rolls, meatballs, rolls (they had whole wheat ones!!), ham and beef deli meat, and a chocolate FONDU FOUNTAIN!! *dies* I had two strawberries with chocolate and a mini puff and a slice of pineapple.

I filled up and ate a bit of everything- funny thing I gave hubby my meatballs and ate his potstickers. Then we danced! Hubby is a terrible dancer but it was still fun (he thinks about it too much IMO I’m like dude no one cares WHAT you are doing just have fun!)

Oh and it was open bar so I had two drinks (hey for open bar that’s good on my part!) Champagne for toasting and an apple martini (YUM). People were so smashed they were dancing up a storm and the music was great! Lots of older songs like Twist and Shout, and they played this Grease Mix- it was awesome! People were singing along and so on. I was told AFTER the party ended (at 11) that people went to a bar across the street and got even MORE hammered lol.

Around 10 my husband started to not feel well- he had a bad headache come on all of a sudden and was starting to get dizzy. I decided then it was time to say goodbye so we went to say goodbye to the bride and groom, hubby felt bad- but with his MS I don’t like him to feel uncomfortable, so we went home and I put him to bed.

The next morning we had brunch with the bride and groom and a few other people that stayed around. A bunch of people were nursing hangovers lol. Oh and I forgot to tell you- the bride and groom had a huge announcement last night! THE BRIDE IS PREGNANT! AWWW- just two months pregnant- they are so happy- they have been together like 8 years- she told me they had actually started trying already and were happy they got pregnant so fast. I’m sure she felt the clock ticking since she’s 32- but she’s in amazing shape as it is.

After brunch we drove home and did the finishing touches on the house cuz my mom was coming home at 11 am the next morning!

Sunday got up and got ready to get my mom- and I was nervous so nervous that while I gave her a hug I didn’t even cry. Got home and let my mom rest a bit- then she did her “inspection” and walked around the house. Course she didn’t find anything wrong… But she did comment later that night she was going to “clean” tomorrow (ug mom really?). I was like whatever I’m gonna be at work- you have fun! lol.

We took her out to lunch and got home and I started my barley soup- OH YEAH- just a huge pack of barely, some salt, a tablespoon of oil tons of water, a few chicken cubes, and chickpeas- let cook for a few hours until it starts to cream up and DONE! Oh man good stuff! I made a huge pot full- that’ll last all week :D

This morning the apparent damage has been done! Woke up today at 211! BAD BAD! I definitely had to remedy that- I account part of it for the evil bag of funyuns with hot sauce and lemon my sister and I had last night… hehee oops!

Tomorrow’s blog nothing but pictures I promise! AND it’s back on the bandwagon today!

PS- Oh yeah forgot the sites were down a few days- probably good thing I just waited until today to blog again :D

Happy Vet’s Day!

Yay! I have today off and am using it to clean- but did wake up when I felt like it and just had some breakfast- going to start around 11 am, that’s plenty of time to clean the kitchen, do my laundry, and clean my bedroom and bathroom before hubby gets home around 4. Oh and to workout at least half an hour as well :D

Called the doctor yesterday and after a similar conversation to the last post they said they took care of it (we’ll see) and to call back Friday. OH I SHALL… I am going to get my new primary to refer me to a sleep specialist and see if my apnea isn’t something more serious- talking to a couple people with sleep apnea and narcolepsy they said having a CPAP and being tired all the time could be indication of another issue. Until then I’ll just deal with this as best I can.

Last night made fajitas for dinner- hubby wanted to go out but I really did not want to. My brother scarfed them down (at least someone appreciates my cooking- but probably cuz he doesn’t like his dad’s cooking lol) and hubby had one- I had two sooo good. I have leftovers for lunch today yum! :D

That’s low fat sour cream btw- and yeah I realized I put way too much lol- I actually took some off after I made the photo lol- that’s what I get for being crazy with the sour cream!

This morning I got up at 8:30 (oh yeah) then made some breakfast:

Now I’m off to read your blogs then get the cleaning started- have a good day everyone :D

OH btw if you watched TBL I am so freaking glad that Shay is gone- I got so tired of her crying and whining all the time- I think she behaved like an idiot during the challenge and when Rudy was like WAH WAH WAH I laughed cuz that’s how I felt- seriously what did she expect? She was going against all his friends- why should he in the end go against his friend as well? Though I think that the little pact they made beforehand was dumb.

Oh and I’m also glad Daniel went home- I don’t think he was into the competition so much anymore honestly- and dude is it obvious to anyone else who his gf is? *cough* Rebecca *cough :D

Oh and am I blind or did they not show Shay’s transformation? I saw Daniel’s- but not Shay’s… I’m going to check online for it.

Phone Conversation

“Hi you have reached Dr. T’s office, can you hold please?”

Sure….

*5 minutes of annoying music….*

“Hi Dr. T’s office, can you please hold?”

I’ve already been on hold for five minutes…

“Oh okay but can you please hold?”

*sigh* Sure….

*2 minutes of annoying music….*

“Dr. T’s office how may I help you?”

Hi I was just calling to see if the pre-authorization has been done for my medication? My name is so and so.

“Let me check- can you please hold?”

Yup…

*2 minutes of annoying music….*

“Dr. T’s office how can I help you?”

Uh, I was on hold waiting to see if the pre-authorization has been done for my medication? My name is so and so.

“Oh okay- can you please hold?”

Uh huh…

*2 minutes of annoying music….*

“Dr. T’s office how can I help you?”

Yeah I was on hold already- I wanted to know if you guys called the insurance for pre-authorization for my medication?

“Your name?”

Beerab….

“Please hold…”

Okay…

*2 minutes of annoying music….*

“Bee, the doctor gave you the prescription last Monday…”

*SIGH* I know that, but my insurance told me without pre-authorization I cannot get the medication.

“Oh you need pre-authorization?”

Yes, I told you guys that last Monday AND last Friday when I called to check and it STILL hadn’t been done. This is the second time I am calling- I don’t know why this isn’t being taken care of.

“I’m sorry Beerab, I will call right now to take care of this, can you just confirm your insurance information?”

Sure here it is again….

“Okay Beerab, I will get this taken care of as soon as we get off the phone.”

Please do and let me know if there is anything you guys need- thank you.

“Sure no problem, thank you.”

*hang up*

Seriously that was a HALF HOUR phone call! My heart was beating so hard and I was shaking so badly from anger…

STAY TUNED for the next installment of “did you call my insurance?”

Busy busy dizzy dizzy

Haha anyone know where that is from? Here’s a hint:

Anyways- yes it’s extremely busy for me- since today is my friday I have to get everything done NOW. Finish some training- speak to the auditors- stock up, and just make sure in general everything is done.

Weighed in at 207 today, pretty good- I’m knowing that it’ll continue to go down- oh guess what? I worked out woo! I just did a fast paced walk/jog for half an hour- didn’t full out run yet cuz I SUCK at it anyways. Didn’t want to burn myself out and told myself even if I have to crawl on the treadmill I will. lol. I had started dinner and once it was going knew it was going to cook at least 45 minutes (brown rice takes FOREVER) so started it- got in my half hour, then came and checked on it- quickly showered, then we had dinner.

For dinner I made chicken breasts with leftover brussels sprouts that I hadn’t used, and those tiny yellow dutch potatoes with brown rice. I had one cup brown rice (less cuz I didn’t finish the whole cupful), then I had a bunch of brussels YUM! Oh and of course chicken- I had like 4 oz of that mmm. I had one TINY piece of potato but that was when I cut one open and tasted it to make sure it was done- I HATE potatoes that aren’t done all the way. I did mark it in my sparkpeople also in case you were wondering ;)

I baked the chicken with the sprouts and potatoes, I had tossed them in some evoo and that adobo seasoning. Came out good- my brother ate every bite- nothing left for leftovers lol but it’s okay. I got a lean cuisine and a large spinach salad today yummy :D

That’s really it for today- never got ahold of my doctor but today I will call at 9 am and ask what’s up. Hubby’s neurologist is so awesome- he called yesterday asking if my husband could come in and sign a paper because the insurance was denying the appeal because my husband didn’t authorize the doc to do an appeal. I said hey I have a fax, just fax it over right now! So he did and we signed it and sent it right back! See That’s how a doctor should be- dedicated- not dragging things out… But that’s life I guess. I’ll also be trying to get my benefits done today if not this week so I can choose a new doctor and get that all taken care of.

Oh and my appointment for a nutritionist is this Thursday- I almost laughed on the phone when she said “please log what you ate at least 48 hours in advance.” Pft I’ll bring you two weeks worth of stuff… I think anything more than that is overkill- don’t you? ;)

That’s it for now- have a great day everyone!

Cleaning day is a very dangerous day

What a tiring weekend- no didn’t stick to phase 1 very well. Correction, breakfast and lunch were both on point for phase 1, dinner- eh not so much… But at least I tried and the stuff I did eat for dinner wasn’t unhealthy- it just wasn’t low carb. Going back to phase 1 when you are getting ready for your mom to come home after not seeing her for two years is tough. I cleaned and swept and mopped till Sunday night I said I’m going to “lie down” for five minutes and woke up an hour later confused! lol. Not even to mention that I didn’t take any medication all weekend… I was exhausted but until I get a full prescription I don’t want to use it on the weekend when the supply I have is so limited. I also think that part of it is when I’m tired I tend to eat more- hence another reason for me to stay on this medication. I do well on the weekdays but weekend are terrible cuz I haven’t been taking my meds then… This doctor needs to freaking HURRY UP.

Is the cleaning done? Nope I wish! The kitchen isn’t done- but I have wednesday off and my sister and I will finish up the kitchen. Also the couches need to be cleaned as well- I bought sheets that I will cover the couches with to help keep them clean. And I’d like to clean out my closets as well so I’ll be taking care of that too- my room isn’t too bad but I’d like to clean it up also. The rest of the house is done- the laundry, the guest room my mom will sleep in, the “gym” where we keep our bikes, my treadmill, my husband’s bowflex (which he STILL hasn’t used- I told him if he hasn’t used it by the end of this month it’s OUT OF HERE), and a few other odds and ends.

Oh and I bought the euro-pro shark steamer- that thing is AMAZING. It cleaned my tile SO WELL! It was $120 but totally worth it! I picked up so much crap my other mop was not- I’m definitely keeping this baby!! If you have tile or hard wood floors I definitely recommended it- it does take a bit of elbow grease but it works so well. I also bought the small hand held steamer for $40 and it cleaned off my oven really nicely, my microwave (that thing was gross on the vents), and all my cabinets! They look brand new now! I give it 5 stars :D

My brother stayed over yesterday- don’t know if anyone keeps up with mexico news- but all the crazy stuff going on down there is finally catching up to my family. My father is a very wealthy person and runs a school in Tijuana- apparently the other day someone called making threats and demanding money. My father decided that he’s not staying at the house and is looking for an apartment here in the states (he lives across the border) and in the meantime my brother will stay with us till my dad finds something. What a crazy world- obviously I care for my brother’s safety so I was like stay here till dad takes care of whatever he’s trying to do.

Back to trying to be good again on the diet- oh and now that I can actually get to my treadmill again I’m going to work out tonight woo! I’m going to try to stick to phase 1 as much as possible for now since I’m still so busy with everything. Tonight for dinner I’m making baked chicken with veggies and brown rice.

Also hubby gave me his pills- he said take them- so I’m back on the meds, hoping it’ll be enough till the insurance says yes or no- and if they say no I’ll cry :(

Anyways- so much left to do today! Got to get the h1n1 vaccine today, call my husband’s doctor ask him if he can get it. Apparently if you have MS you CAN NOT have the nasal one it might kill you- you can only get the shot but with approval from your neurologist. Luckily my husband said something to the nurse about his MS before she gave it to him and she told him she can’t give him the spray!

Then have to call a friend over to help us clean out the large bunch of trash we have at home- I’m throwing out a bunch of random items that have been sitting in the backyard FOREVER. A friend of mine said the dump charges $30 a load- so we’ll load up his truck and be done with it!

I’m exhausted just posting this lol ;) Have a good day everyone!

Oh and I totally forgot to weigh in! Last night at 3 am there was this HUGE crash in the living room- scared the living daylights out of me! Turns out it was a bag of dry groceries my husband was taking to work the next day- it’s so odd that it fell over at 3 am- but there you have it. It totally ruined my sleep and took me forever to fall back to sleep :( I’ll weigh in tomorrow.

Phase 1 again

Yesterday hubby took me out for pho and I ate my fill and it was good. Then when I got home last night decided it’s time to just go back on phase 1 again, the loss has stalled so I’ve obviously added too many carbs back. So TODAY- yes Saturday I’m going back to phase 1. Breakfast will be most likely two hard boiled eggs, some I can’t believe it’s not butter, and bacon or something. Lunch will be a large salad with grilled meat, and dinner wil be something similar.

Here’s my pho from last night- sorry about the bad quality- I took it from my camera phone.

You can see I totally load it with veggies :D I hadn’t added sriracha yet- normally my broth is red lol.

What time did I go to bed last night? 8:30! But I don’t need that medication OH NO- going to bed at 8:30 pm and waking up at 8:30 am is TOTALLY normal… RIGHT…

Lots to do this weekend, mostly cleaning and getting the house back into shape for my mom’s return, I am sure I won’t be blogging as much but my blogs will be longer when I am around- I’ll definitely include pictures!!

Have a good day everyone!

Breakfast: 3 hard boiled eggs with 1 tablespoon ICBINB Light and dash of pepper (2 grams carbs)

Lunch:
2 cups romaine lettuce, half a tomato, an ounce of cheese and about 4 tablespoons cilantro cesar. (9 grams carbs)
