Losin it in Paradise


Well I decided to let the hubby live and we have worked thru it, even thou when I think of it I still steam a bit.   I made a police report and a bank report and it looks like I will get the money back.  BUT needless to say, hubby will not be getting another card to my account.  He will just have to budget and make sure he does not run out of money.  I am actually more at peace with this cause he is bad for taking money and not telling me…WTF!

Sad to say but Mr. Morbid Obese did not survive the night.  In a way it was a blessing he was so ill, but also sad that his weight made him that way.  It took year off of him, years away from his children and grandchildren.

I am doing well.  Managed to lose the two pounds I put on over my weeeknd in Oahu and then have lost another pounds since then for a total of 11 pounds.  I am still running and have added another .25 of a mile on this week.  Endurance not speed is my motto now.  I had to try something different as I was getting injured too often when I was trying to run too fast.  So now I run a 17 min mile which is slower than a lot but it works good for me.  I want to be able to run a greater distance instead of a faster time.  Since I have motified my running, I have had no further injuries so I am doing something right.

Diet is going well.  I have discovered Eggbeaters and am loving them.  All the flavor of eggs without the cholestrol.   And low calorie…in fact only 70 calories for a double serving.  I have some Boca sausage with it and my whole supper is only 140 calories!!!  Have to add some vegetables and fruit to try and get it up calorie wise.  And not to mention my wonderful soybeans (Edamame) so lovin them.

The soybeans have really helped to keep me away from the Good & Plenty which has always been my vice.  I find that sitting and eating them and having to eat them out of the pods takes time and feels liKe I am having a real treat.  In fact this weekend when my DH got up from the TV around 9am and asked what was for dessert, I told him he had some chocolate cheesecake in the freezer, and he asked me it I wanted any, and I told him no, that I was going to have some Edamame….he thinks I am crazy…soybeans over chocolate.

DH got me a new phone for Valentine’s Day.  I have wanted this phone for a long time.  It is a Omnia Smart Phone and after a couple days of it I can see why they called it a smart phone.  It is fookin smarter than ME…..I need to go out and buy “Omnia for Dummies”  I am even going to a 2 hours course in town on Thursday to learn how to use it….DOH!

I was on the webcam with my grand daughter last night, and I asked her what she learned in pre-pre school (she is only 2) and she sang “Itsy bitsy spider” to me complete with all the little hand movements.  It was adorable.  And she can sing all the words….my heart just swelled…..I love her so

Other than that not too much.  i survived my horrendous nine shifts in a row.  Had a nice 3 day weekend, now working a double tonight and then off again for 2 more before starting three in a row.  No more 9 day.  In fact the rest of the month looks really nice.

DH and I are thinking of a trip to Vegas this year.  It is our 7th anniversary this year and we got married in Vegas and haven’t been back since, so maybe this year.  We got married in the Little White Wedding Chapel.  It was a nice ceremony complete with a pastor vs civic clerk.  I wanted to just go thru the marriage drive thru, but hubby wanted a ceremony.  And it was nice….I wore RED!  woohoo….

There is a little vamp in me somewhere 😉

  1. Three more pounds gone…well, alrighty!!! You’re doing wonderful!

    So glad the bank is reimbursing you. That’s a lot of money to lose.

    I used to run, years ago, before I managed to tear up both my ankles and the doctor always said the same thing…go for endurance, not speed. A lot less stressful on the body.

    That granddaughter has got to be cute as they come! Two year olds are absolutely priceless!

  2. You are so lucky to have that baby grand daughter -and she sounds so cute! Bet you kissed the screen – I would’ve.
    Your running pace sounds right. I am slowing down my pace on the elliptical – I’ll find the right pace eventually, too.
    Love the sound of the phone. Love how you write “fookin”, it reminds me of the Irish.

  3. Oh, MY. Loosin’ it in Paradise indeed! You are just flat out doing great, you know???? I’m SO glad that you’re not working anymore of those killer 9-day-straight schedules. It doesn’t make one iota of sense – to wear somebody out like that. SO glad about the bank being cooperative, and hmmmmm….the cellphone you’re describing would be WAY beyond my pitiful techno-capacity. I don’t even text-message, and don’t really bother even trying to pick up any voice mails. I figure if anybody wants me, they can call me at home or in my office.
    I am SO looking forward to having some little grandbabies around again. My youngest is seven now, and not all that cuddly. Your little granddaughter sound so precious! Lucky you!
    Keep up the good work – you know I’m here behind the scenes cheering for you!

  4. You sound so good. I can tell you are taking care of you and that is super to hear. Good job on NOT killing your hubby! I am sure he is relieved as well. ?. I have been off of the Good n Plentys too. I can’t have them in the house. It’s sad. Ever notice that people love them or hate them and if they hate them they’re not afraid to tell you. Love the idea of Vegas. It’s so much fun! They are offering major deals too because of the hard times. I hope you go. And let some of that vamp loose in “Sin City”. ?

    Your grandbaby sounds too precious. My heart just melted when I read your post. Too cute and stinkin’ adorable.

    You’ll be fab with your new phone. I am typing this from my phone while all snuggled in bed. Don’t know how I lived without it. Can’t wait to hear about your progress.

  5. Your granddaughter is really cute. I can imagine her reciting. I want to pick her up and give her a squeeze and many kisses.

    You are doing so well. Weight loss and diet and running.. I am inspired.



  6. Oh my goodness, I wonder if you could record her doing that?

    My heart swells up just hearing it!

    Soybeans over cheesecake?

    Ok, I think that’s the equivalent of ‘when pigs fly’…

    bacon is falling from the sky!!!!!!

    Viva Las VEgas!

    Girl I can definitely see how you could pull off a red dress! 🙂

    Hmmm, I think I’ll do that too someday!
