Weight: 152

Well that's disappointing. Last Friday I reached 150. I guess I'm going to have to lay off of the wine being that's the only diet change I made this weekend. Big D and I went out last Saturday, and I loves me some wine! I'm so sad.

Today started a new workout program with Self.com. I'm doing the lose 8 pounds in 4 weeks. Basically it just changes your cardio a little bit and gives you a new toning program. Toning is no problem f0r me as I am an avid weight lifter. But cardio? BLECH! BLECH! BLECH! BLECH! BLECH! Needless to say, after todays cardio, I was drenched in sweat and tired. Yeah, I was lovely at the bus stop this morning with my son. Thank goodness for my new OSU hat! Now I just need to figure out a way to cover up the glowing red face I had.

On a more positive note I think my treadmill is dying. Every time I pumped it up to a running speed, it started making this loud popping noise. My husband will be disappointed, but I'm loving the idea of the excuse not to get on it. wahahahahaha...that's my evil laugh for those of you who don't know.

Positives:
1. Got the work-out done by 8:30 this morning.
2. B's back at school and is excited by it! C's going this afternoon and is excited as well.
3. Tomorrow's a cardio day off! WOOHOO! O yeah! Can you feel my excitement?!

Weight: 153....errrrrrrrrr...

What?! Back to this number again. I was finally getting excited. Yesterday I popped up at 151. I was happy considering I was out of town this past weekend and had to eat out every meal. And at a water park where the food is nothing but "fair" food, it was really hard to be good. I did OK.

Hopefully today's gain is just a fluke...or water...or something.

Positives:
1. B's teacher seems nice.
2. Enjoyed volunteering at the school.
3. 2 more days until kids are back at school!:)

Weight: 152!!!! Yay!

Finally getting past the 153 mark. Keep going down baby!

I bought some fantastic Artisan bread this week. It's strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry sour dough. I've eaten the entire loaf plain in 3 days. I think yesterday the only thing I ate besides the bread was a piece of chicken. Oh my...now that's some good nutrition. I'll have to be more careful and get something less tempting next week.

Positives:
1. Had fun swimming with the kids and the ladies at a friends pool this morning.
2. Don't have to go anywhere the rest of the day and am already in my jammies.
3. I'm cooking a new recipe this evening and it looks like it's going to be really yummy.

Weight: 153

So I'm on hold. I have a masterplan this week to get the next three off. Back to most veggies, fruit and protein. At least I didn't gain this past weekend like I did last weekend.

Last night I watched a little of a celebrity weight loss show on VH-1. On it was a former Baywatch babe. She weighed in at, drum-roll, 152! The horror! Anyway, she said she said the perfect weight for her was 120-125, and she's a whole inch taller than me! So...now I'm competing with her. Of course she doesn't know it. Sick, huh? I'm now competing with my imaginary TV competitor. What have I sunk to?

Oh well, whatever it takes.

Note: Last Wednesday I went to a friend's house to swim with the kids. I packed my healthy food to eat and was proud of my willpower in doing so. Then my skinny friend, Miss Size 0, plops down chips and hershey kisses down on the table in front of me. I think she's being passively aggressive and it trying to tempt me. Because as you know, the world revolves around me! I think she wants to be the only skinny girl.

Actually, I think I'm getting dilusional because I'm so hungry! Oh no! I'm getting mean like mean skinny girl. I better go eat something.

Positives:
1. I don't have to be anywhere to do anything today.
2. I got all of my writings down before 8:30 in the morning.
3. My daugter is being super sweet today in that she's in love with Mommy and is sitting right next to me working on her "puter."

Struggling

Weight: Who the heck knows? I sure didn't weigh today.

I've been struggling with the eating lately. Actually I'm doing OK with the eating...sticking to the plan. But I can't seem to figure out what that nagging feeling is in the pit of the stomach that causes me to feel hungry when I've just eaten plenty of good, nutritious food. It's like little man person inside that keeps poking me and says, "go eat some crap. go eat some crap. White sugar is gooooooodddd....doooooo it!" It's taking everything I have not to give in. At what point does that little man go away?

Positives:
1. I thought of a brilliant punishment for little children who lie...make them do my housework. I don't know how effective it is, but at least I get my stuff done!
2. Found a good motivational dress to fit into for Mexico. If I accomplish my goal, I will look totally hot in it!
3. Talked to an old friend today. Enjoyed rehashing the good memories.
