When I read this the first time, I thought you had gained around your belly and hips. I had to come and do a double-take on this one!

It is "NO Excuses" Tuesday, however...... a Doctor's excuse will have to suffice for me
I'm telling you....I'd rather be in pain from the weights than from this toe!!

Well joy! I can't have it removed until tomorrow at 11am.
Another day of lying around with my foot propped up....not how I had planned to spend the week before the race!
Of course, at this rate...I will not be running

This is going to be a rant

I HATE vanity sizing! Hate it! Why are the designers catering towards obesity? I was shopping at Costco and I saw these cute dresses. I decided to get one. I almost bought size 10 but decided to get size 8 because my "real" 10's are starting to get looser. So I brought the dress home and tried it on; I was swimming in it!! I went an exchanged it to a 6 and it is still big! I need a 4... FOUR! In which universe a woman who is 7 pounds over weight wears a size 4???

My regular store does not use vanity sizing, well only their jeans run big. I get everything in size 10 there except their jeans (I need to get 8's). I hope the god that they don't change their sizing!

On a positive note. The dress looks awesome on me I placed a wide belt on high waist and peek-a-boo sky high heels and I looked smoking hot

I am having a lot of NSV's....I guess it is helping me to get out of my funk.

Jo I was thinking about my lack of mojo during my walk. I am loathing all the counting and recording. I am taking a break from it. I have no problem doing FAST5 etc. I think I will concentrate on just eating window, because I am simply sick of all that logging. It is pretty hard to over eat during 5 hour eating window. I will also keep my twice per week 22-24 fasts.

As I mentioned this morning, my tummy is slimming down. I think it is all that green tea I drink. I brew a pot in the morning and I drink it hot at first and iced later. I use decaf tea. Green tea is supposed to melt tummy fat and after 6 weeks of large consumption of it, my tummy is going down. maybe it is not true, but hey if it is helping, I am not complaining

I am really trying to focus on positive ( except my clothing rant ) I put some sun-in for my hair before my walk and placed whitening strips on my teeth...next time one may see me there with my rollers in my hair.....hehe....so after my walk my hair was sun kissed and smile was brighter. I may be tired of this journey, I may be upset of the curve ball life threw at me, I may have another hellish PMS month, but I WILL try my best to stay on path and stay positive.

Krystal I hope it will get taken care of tomorrow. You have done so much training, it would be heart breaking if you could not run! Maybe a little break will actually help you! Gives your body rest and you will be even stronger next week

oh krystal i hope your toe will be okay, removed or not my teenager struggled with horrible ingrown toenails on both big toes for years as a child and we finally ended up having both big toenails permanently removed and killed so they wont grow back...he's SO much happier now...his surgeries went fine and his recovery was quick also

ive been busy today, which i like...took the kids to school, went to the bank, recycling center, store and gas station...cleaned the kitchen, made some business calls, and then went to the gym for an hour of incline walking

now i have to get cleaned up and go to work....tonight is dinner and raking up the back yard...and i saw someone using the CUTEST rototiller to prep for planting grass seed...i SO need one of those!!

also one of my "second children" is coming to live with us for awhile...he says it's a week, we all know it will be longer...he's a kid (okay 18 year old now) who has called me his "second mommy" for years, since he was little...and his whole family left town and he is homeless so we said he could stay with us for awhile...

Krystal - I am so sorry you are stuck on your tuccus another day. I sure hope that they get that toe taken care of for you tomorrow!!! I also hope the healing happens quickly enough that you can participate in what you have trained so very hard for!

Sum - Regardless of the number on the tag, I am glad you found a dress you look smoking hot in...though I imagine that couldn't be too tough of a task to find I don't blame you on the food logging... other than watching my fats, I have not logged during week, just weekends (cause I change it up a bit) - that is something that burns me out.

Alaskan - That is so nice of you and your DH to take in the kid. Sounds like a productive day for you too!

No one is buying your "rant" claim.

BRAT!

Krystal - Wouldn't it be "rough" to have the problem of having to "tolerate" wearing a size 4???? I wish I had problems like that, Soooo... how many movies CAN you watch in a day? Anything good on tv?

Seriously!?!

A 4????

Waaa Waaa Waaa



Anyone know of a fast remedy for poison ivy? My youngest has it on his ankles and is going on a school trip to DC next week. I am hoping to have it mostly dried out by then. So far, we have just done the caladryl thing, but after he showers I am going to use either alcohol or hydrogen peroxide or apple cider vinegar (google remedies) and then going to slather with aloe plant. Also going to give him a good dose of vit c, multi, and allergy tab. Anyone have anything else?

JO: Here's a poison ivy remedy DH swears by: "Grandma's Lye Soap" He purchases it at a local hardware shop in the city. I'm sure you could find some in your area. Lather it on the infected area and allow it to dry on the skin--DO NOT RINSE!

Yup, now I am size 4

I felt like a total tonight. We took our first self defense class...mirrors everywhere. -- There was this lady about my age who was probably 10 pounds lighter but carried her weight on her butt and thighs and she looked so pretty with her tiny waist and curvy hips. I looked like a barrel with skinny legs next to her, actually like Sponge Bob! I am no apple, I am Sponge Bob! I really need to start core training, otherwise I am always going to look funny.
