5% pleasure, 50% pain

I have that song in my head. Who is it by? Fort Minor (I had to sing it to where they say that in the song to remember! ha). Anyway, that is SO true. A little luck, a little skill, concentrated power of will… Well, let me let you know: I WILL rock this! I did no cardio last night, but I did do my pushups and I think they are getting a lot easier already. I am not sore this morning at all, and the hubby said I was going much closer to the ground last night. Yay! I need to work on eating all of my points because last night I was left with 7 at bedtime! Of course, that is easily remedied with a ww blueberry muffin and a big glass of milk, but still… I was tempted to eat some pringles, and even though they fit into my points they are not healthy for me so I don’t want to put them in my body. I am so proud of myself for not indulging, even when all the boys were (hubbs included). I am very stubborn, and I am setting my sights on this. I love this determination!!!

So today is my Friday (since I don’t work on Fridays) and it is also my first payday!! They do taxes and withholdings different here than in Oklahoma so I’m not sure how much my check wil be. Normally I would be able to estimate it, considering I have done payroll for years, but this is weird! No social security tax! I love working for the government! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised at the amount! Either way, I am treating myself to something, though I don’t know what. My favorite things are clothes and food, and I don’t want to buy fat clothes andย them be too big (fingers crossed) in a month, nor do I want to buy food and keep growing!! Any ideas??

Have a great Thursday!!

Weigh in

Uncategorized No Comments »

Boo for weigh ins! I tried not to let myself get all excited, but as usual I did. I did so well this week and I was expecting some good results. I lost .6. Yes POINT 6, as in not even a single pound. I was so upset and discouraged… UNTIL I came home.ย The hubbyย made me feel a LOT better, reminding me of some of the causes of the low number and now I am back to being happy. Well, happy is a stretch… I am SO premenstrual! Poor boys in this house! So, I will keep at it and post a HUGE number (like 2!) next week!!!

Tonight is week 1 night 2 of the hundred pushup challenge, and I am gonna rock that bad boy! I think I am gonna skip out on the cardio and watch a sad movie or something… I am really needing a good cry.


Crash! Boom. Bang!

Ok, it wasn’t THAT exciting, but it was still MY first earthquake. Pretty neat-o, huh?!ย  I am still sore from the pushups, and looking forward to doing another round tonight (sarcasm you say? nahhhhh!). Today is the big two week weigh in at work, and I am nervous as usual. I ate so good this week, used less flex points than last week, and did a crap ton more cardio, so I HOPE it makes a difference. I’m not gonna get my hopes up though. I am kinda bloaty and weird. I have had goodie drama for the last year and a half or so and my system is nothing but predictable. They now think I might have endometriosis (which they thought I had before… but then found a huge ovarian cyst so that derailed them. AGHHH) and I’ll be on MORE pills. Everytime they put me on stuff I gain about 5 pounds. So yeah, just trying to be as fit as I can and not put too much pressure on the actual number on the scale. Oh who am I kidding?! I want to weigh less, damnit! Guess we’ll see. I’ll letcha know ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh, and also, ran 30 minutes straight the day before yesterday, tried to do it again last night and I only did 20 minutes, which was almost 2 miles. Prety sa-weet, huh?!

I did my pushups yesterday… 2, 2, 2, 2 & 5 for a total of 13 and owie zowie, am I sore! Either that or I am officially the biggest wuss ever, which is a total possibility ๐Ÿ˜€

I am starting to get excited about the weigh in tomorrow but I don’t want to let myself do that. Everytime I get my hopes up for something it turns to crap and I don’t want to jinx this!

Well, I’m off to console the hubbs… another bad day at work. Ugh.

And one more thing

The hubbs and I are doing the hundred pushup challenge! I talked him into doing it with me… yay! Bad news, he is the top level and I am the bottom! Oh well, soon I’ll be right up there! I can do pushups the “girlie” way, but I am learning to do them the regular way. Wish me luck and join me if you wanna!! We’re doing M, W, and F nights.


Runnin’ down a dream

I ran 30 minutes straight today! Mostly I did it because I wanted to prove to the hubby I could. He is a runner and I ask him for advice and it always seems like he is talking down to me. I know that he isn’t, but I get so defensive about things I am insecure about. Grrrrr! Anyway, I ran for over 2.5 miles! Yay! I also ate really well today, and resisted those damn cupcakes. And made the boys eat all of them to ensure I wouldn’t have to face temptaion again! ha! I still have 5 points to eat today, so I guess I should go make a healthy, yummy snack. I hate that I either go way over or way under. Eating a certain number of points is so hard. I may take up the range idea of a fellow 3FC’er ๐Ÿ˜€


Air Force?

Uncategorized No Comments »

I talked to my Dad last night, for the first time in a long time. I am just getting to know him over the last couple years, but under the circumstances I think we have a pretty decent relationship. He was in the military for a long time, and I was asking him last night his opinions on me joinung the Navy to get law school paid for. He thinks I should ditch the law school idea and join the air force before the hubby gets out (2 years… he wants to finish school and doesn’t really like what he does here). Now, I had thought of going into the Army after highschool, and he was adamantly against it, but this he is all for. Hmmm… now the other thing is- could I get in?! I am too chubby right now, as they have a BMI limit of 27.5 or something. BUT, they would measure my bodyfat if my BMI was too high and I think that would get me in. My BMI is misleading. 10 pounds ago I had a BMI of almost 30 but only 24% bodyfat, which is normal. Yep, I’mma “big girl.” So, I dunno, just something to think about I suppose…

Either way, I am committed to this eating right today. I have pennance to pay for this weekend, and I shall pay up after work via the treadmill ๐Ÿ˜€

So yeah, ugly.

Man, I have been trucking right along and then WHAM! Welcome home cupcakes. Why am I so addicted to sweets? Needless to say, I went over my points yesterday. Today I ate doritos and smores. I did limit them both, but I feel guilt! Well, at least about the doritos… I LOVE homemade smores ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been trying to even out the mistakes and I did okay today, but I feel like I haven’t eaten as much healthy stuff, ya know? Meh, tomorrow is another day.

I did work out today, taking my little one for a ride in that handy jogging stroller (that hasn’t seen much jogging!). We live on the top of a mountain and so we went down it, which is about a mile, and back up then around the neighborhood for a total of about 3 miles. That last part of the uphill climb is STEEP and I was having a tough time with it, but it was so worth it. I feel much better about today knowing I got my workout in first. Oh, and did I tell you I ran an extra 4 and a half minutes yesterday? Soon it will be LOTS more!

And lastly, I LOVE reading yalls blogs and getting feedback from you!! However, I can’t find most of you again! I can’t figure out how to make a blogroll for my page so I can save my favorites of you. Any help?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Good luck tomorrow, Mondays are always a good diet day for me!

Oh gracious.

So my baby is home, all is well… EXCEPT… the hubby is cooking dinner. Which I am thankful for, even if my diet is not. I made a HUGE mistake this morning by getting an egg mcmuffin. I thought those were the lesser or the evil of that place, but 7 or 8 points later I suppose I was wrong. Then leftovers from last night were lunch and that was 8 points. I should be eating soup or salad for dinner, but alas I am not. I am gonna go over a few points today, but I have those 35 flex points for a reason, right?! It just bums me out. At least I already worked out for the day!!

I’m off to make brussel sprouts (aka damage control) to complimint the hubbs dinner…

Ohhhh you make me so HIGH!

Baby, baby, baby, BABY! ha, a little old school Toni Braxton for ya ๐Ÿ˜€

I got up early this morning since I couldn’t sleep anyway… my baby comes home today!!! So, thought I’d get my run in and get it over with. Man, do I feel good! Who’da thought I’d ever say running felt good? Ha! This makes three days in a row for me, and I am feeling so very good about myself and about my ability to DO THIS! The honeymoon phase, I know. But hell, I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.

Last night was AMAZING. I think I have THE most romantic, thoughtful hubby ever. We dropped of the kiddos, headed out to a delicious Italian place, and followed it up with about an hour and a half of walking through downtown, then the beach, and lastly through the neighborhoods there. I want to buy a house here so bad and stay, but they are just so expensive! How can people afford all of this stuff? I mean, not just the real estate; everyone here has really, really expensive cars (saw my first Porshe SUV… didn’t even know they MADE those!), no one is caught dead with a lowly Macy’s purse like me. Oh no, It’s all Coach, Louis Vitton, and Baby Phat here. It’s almost too materialistic for me. I am from a lower (LOWER) middle class family and even though I am educated and make pretty good money, I find it hard to spend on stuff like that (especially cars! do you know how fast they depreciate??). Then there is that greedy little part of me that wants all of it just to prove I can have it. Ah, such is life I suppose.

Anyway, off to shower and make a Welcome Home banner! Happy Saturday!!!
