I dealt with my candy issue today. When I got to work, I told Vesna that I was not allowed to have candy and I moved the bowl up front, where I could not grab a piece in secret (Thanks Val!!). She then moved it back to the back, I guess she didn't understand what I meant. So, I picked it back up and said "no, really. I can't have any candy". Then when other people came in, I told them too. It was very successful, I didn't even have one piece and I didn't want any either.

Today was really busy, I was on my feet most of the day and I wasn't too hungry. I didn't even get to eat lunch until I got off work at 3:00pm.

I at a LC for dinner and just got back from my walk. My legs are still throbbing. Darryl and I finally decided that we are going to start martial arts classes right down the street. We will go when we lose more weight. I hope a certain someone will come too. : )

I can't wait to get on the scale!!! I want to do it tomorrow just to see... But I won't weigh in until at least Saturday.

Evil is packaged. It is wrapped in red and green colored foil, covered in chocolate and filled with creamy peanut butter. Little chocolate Santas and Christmas trees. They are delicious, they are evil, they are everywhere!!! I ate about 10 of them yesterday. But I will not eat anymore because I am making a promise right here and now. No more chocolate covered, peanut butter filled anythings anymore. (even though they are delicious)

Yesterday was an awesome day, I didn't really have an eating plan. I don't really have to plan it out anymore I am just used to it now. But yesterday I had a shake for breakfast and coffee, then Val and I went to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch and it was so good. I had a huge salad with everything I could think of on it. Then we went and walked over the Ringling bridge and saw the holiday Boat Parade (well some of it, until it got cold).

Then I had popcorn and a pudding for snack.

Today promises to be a very boring day. Sunday. But i have a lot of things to do at work and also I found out they are moving me back to the store I originally came from. So, I am so excited about that.


Happy Sunday.

I am doing really good and just knowing I have done so well, makes me want to keep doing it. I have been sticking to my plan for two weeks now and I only cheated one time. Becky and Eva brought 3 pieces of a cheesecake thing. I honestly could have resisted it, but i had done well and they were only 100 calories each. So I had 2 and saved the other for Darryl. I am so anxious to weigh in early just to see. But I have patience and control, I will wait until Monday.

Not too much else to say, I worked out like I was supposed to this week. I only walked on Tuesday and Wednesday but I am trying to take it easy on my foot. It seems to be getting a little better. Once it is healed, I will be a walking fool! Fo Sho!

Today is my long day at work noon til 11pm. woo hoo. I won't be applying for the position at the branch closer to me. I will be starting school in January and I think it's best I stay where I am, my work schedule and school schedule will fit pretty well. Unless they move me..

That's all for now.

Happy Friday!

Today went by so fast, it's hard to believe I have to go to bed in two hours. Then I get the joy of going to "amcrack" bright and early, to endure another day of 5 customers (5 if i'm lucky). But I did find out that someone in my position was fired Monday at a busier store. It's a possibility that I may get transferred. I'm feeling kinda down about that, It's almost like they put me at this slow ass location to forget about me. I won't be forgotten. he he he... Nayways...

This is how it went down today:

Shake (carnation instant breakfast, 1 cup fat free milk, 1/2 banana, 1 tsp safflower oil)
Campbell's healthy harvest (something like that) chicken noodle soup - NASTY, I ate half of that then threw it away and had half a turkey sandwich
1 cup of coffee with Becky.
Apple for snack
Lean cuisine (chicken parmagan - new recepie) my new favorite. I also really like, from the Spa classics, grilled chicken with pasta in a garlic sauce, it has twice as many veggies as a regular Lean Cuisine and it has asparagus, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes. Man that is awesome. I never liked asparagas until now. They say your taste changes every 7 years, but it seems like mine changes more often. Actually, I think i just try more stuff now.
Walked 2 miles.
I will have popcorn with D for snack before bed. It's kind of hard to believe that's all I ate today. It wasn't hard either.

My MRI was pretty scary, I guess i'm a little clausterphobic. I was trying to calm myself down and do deep breathing exercises but the lady called over my headphones and told me I was moving and that we had to do this one part over again. So then, I started breathing more shallow and it made me freak out a little. I was trying to focus on not moving and it felt like my legs wanted to twitch, then my crotch started to itch and I had to focus on other things. It was definitely, trying for me. I'm glad it's over and I hope I never have to do that again.

The cat scan only lasted 3 minutes, nothing to say about that.

Tomorrow is my workout day:

Bench Press
Lat Row
Shoulder raise
Bicep Curl
Tricep Extension
Leg Extension
Leg Curl
Calf Raise
Low Back Extension

I only do 1 set of 15 reps so it doesn't take long, just about 20 minutes. But it's enough to make me sweat and make my arms feel like noodles. I feel so awesome after I workout, it makes me wonder why I put it off.

Well, until next time.

I lost 14 pounds!! I am so happy and proud of myself, I can't even believe it. I was really good about controlling my calories and cravings and it paid off!! My cravings were pretty manageable, I meditated, chewed gum and drank a ton of water. I feel like this time it's for good. I have a long way to go but I have the tools I need and the support (Thanks Val) to make it all the way.

Today's Plan:

Shake 310
Soup 220
Apple 100
Lean Cuisine 280
Popcorn. 200

Today is going to be a super awesome day, I can feel it. Plus, it will be a pretty busy day at work, i hope. Whenever i'm busy I rarely think of food, so I know I will stay on track today. My biggest fight will be when I get home from work at 11.

The Plan:

Shake 300
Soup 300
Apple 50
Lean Cuisine 300
Yogurt 80
Popcorn 100
Water. 0

I found Pandora radio on the internet and I'm totally digging it. http://www.pandora.com

Also, Lily Allen has a new video out which I think is really cute: http://happymundane.blogspot.com/2008/12/tgif-video-break-lily-allen-fear.html

I also started to crochet a new hat in gray yarn. Hope it will be cute.

Nothing else to say except that an old man came to my work the other day and we were making small talk and he asked me if I watch TV naked. LOL! It was hilarious. I told him I watch TV with only my socks on. He was pretty excited about that, I think I have a new friend.

Day Dos

Yesterday went very well. The only thing I did that was bad, was that I ate tootsie rolls. My plan yesterday:

Shake for bfast
soup for lunch
apple and yogurt for snack
Then I ate some cake frosting (i hate admitting that, but it was only a little. Then I threw it away)
Lean Cuisine for dinner with a yogurt
a sugar free pudding for snack with Reddi Whip.
I also drank a lot of water and I had a cup of coffee but I didn't drink the whole thing.

Today will be pretty much the same minus the tootsie rolls and cake frosting.

I am going to go through my fridge and ditch anything bad. I know I have some cream cheese and cupcakes in there.

Things to do today: (in no particular order)

1. Pay my insurance and water bill.

2. Go to SPC and pay the enrollment fee

3. Fill out Fafsa

4. Order transcripts from MCC

5. Workout

6. Read Twilight (Val, I bought Twilight, do you want to read it when i'm done?)

My MRI and CT scan are scheduled for next Tuesday at 9am.

Day One yet again

Hello! Hi! Bienvenidos (sp)

Today is a new day again! Imagine that.

The plan:

Carnation instant shake
1 cup fat free milk
1 tsp of Safflower oil

Bowl of Campbell's chunky beef veg soup
1 slice of wheat toast with 1 tsp butter

water water water water...

Carrots, popcorn

water water water water

Lean Cuisine, yogurt


Also, I will not be eating after 8pm (I chose 8 because I work late)

If you noticed, I have added Safflower oil to my diet. When I was on WW, they recommend you have 2 tsp of oils a day.

Also, I had a Dr appointment today where we addressed my weight and back. I was really surprised she didn't make me feel terrible about my weight. We talked about healthy eating and snacks. But she did ask me if I ever thought about Lap Band. I said of course, but I would like to give it a good try on my own before I would consider it. I do get down in the dumps and think of it every now and then, But I have to do it my self.

I have been having headaches a lot lately, I have one now, and she has me going for an MRI for the back and CT scan for my head. They will call me in a few days for an appointment. I will keep posting about it. I also have a lot of blood work to go to, probably tomorrow.
