The Verdict is In

It’s official. I suck. Cookies, brownies, cupcakes. I did manage sushi for lunch. I love sushi!! And it’s healthy. I get the spring roll type with no rice, so it’s just veggies and fish wrapped in rice papery stuff. It’s better than it sounds! I usually get the spicy tuna roll cause it’s delicious and [...]

Back in the trenches, take 2

A.M weigh-in: 160.4 (oh, that’s just so awesome! AWESOME!! blahhhhhh!!)
So, yesterday was officially the worst first day back on track in the history of first day back on tracks! It started with a peanut butter cup for breakfast and ended with Taco Bell. There were many cookies, Junior Mints and even a shared order of [...]

Back in the trenches

Holding breath, after peeing, totally nakkid, thinking my very thinnest thoughts: 160.2 (damn!)
OK, so today is a whole new day. I’m all about looking forward and not looking back (especially since the only thing I’d be able to see is my fat ass!) UGH - 6 weeks ago I was at what, like 145. 15 [...]

Back to reality? Naw, not today!

We had a great day at Disneyland yesterday, right up until Sean got sick and we had to leave early (around 8pm). He was upset because he didn’t end up getting to go his very favorite ride Autopia. But he kept having to run to the bathroom every 10 minutes and there was just no [...]

Deja Vu all over again

And so I am once again back at Disneyland! Third time this month. That’s gotta be some kind of record for a non-local! Especially since I also don’t have a season pass (though I do have free tickets this time and they had an expiration that was coming up right quick.)
This trip is just me [...]

Night at the Movies: Battle of the Snacks

A.M. weigh-in: 157.4
Took the kids to see Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (click HERE for link to my movie review blog. It was really good and the kids LOVED it!!) Ate half a large bag of kettle corn and half a small bag of Skittles. I’ve done seriously worse at the movies, [...]

Not sure how??

A.M. weigh in: 157.8 (really? I should eat kettle corn and frozen junior mints at midnite more often!)
I’m running on about 5 hours of sleep. Not due to sick children this time. Nope. Took my two older boys to the midnight showing of Terminator Salvation. I acknowledge that that is totally crazy. I’m ok with [...]

Do I or Don’t I

A.M. weigh-in: 159.6
Kids are doing MUCH better!! I put Sean on the bus a few minutes ago, all ‘roided up but no wheezing and with a full nights’ sleep. He was happy and practically skipped out to the bus. I’m hoping he has a wheeze-free day. Skye’s rash is almost completely gone. Her face is [...]

Throwing in the Towel

A.M. weigh in: I don’t wanna know - my clothes are all tight. I bought bigger pants the other day. It’s not good. And I can’t handle any more bad news right now.
The healthiest thing I ate yesterday was a Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad from Jack in the Box. Mostly I ate Doritos, Cheez-its, Twinkies, [...]

When you can’t even take a deep breath

A.M. weigh in: no idea
Breakfast: Doritos and Coke Zero
Hours of sleep last night: less than 3 total
Skye’s birthday party yesterday, kids went swimming. Sean’s asthma flared up. And got worse. He wheezed all night, had to give him breathing treatments every few hours. He just had a hot bath this morning. I can hear him [...]
