King of Spades

Thursday, May 08, 2008

Well, tomorrow evening I am off.

I made my trail mix of good and crunch thngs that I like, almonds, celery, grapes, mushroom soup. Lol, not all of those things go into the trail mix. Tonight I am going to celebrate my success.

I also want a new pair of tennis shoes, only I want a pair of low heeled shoes like my old keds which are in dire need of retiring to the really dirty job closet. I don't know where to look. My toes are getting breaking out........but my feet have got to feel the earth.

Sunday am, well I woke up at 7 am and felt fine and was up for about a half hour, and then went back to bed. I woke up at 10:30 and don't have an order of how I want to get things done. Seems that along with the cat food and the gas, I also need to havee quarters for the laundry. I still have clean clothes in thee laudry baskets, and that is what is slowing me down now. This past week my body wanted to walk, maybe I'll just do that. I don't feel like doing any of my chores right now. And eating......I am blocked by the dishes in the sink.

I've never smoked, but speaking to some who do, I am finding that after they have quit for a while their body sort of coughs off all sorts of stuff, Does the same thing happen with people who are shortly into new lifestyle changes?

Saturday pm, one job done for the day, one more to go~~tomorrow off.......I need to use that time wisely, cause I paid some consequences in terms of losing hours because I both didn't limit set with someone about how late I could be out last night and in general, I lost time this week because I didn't have cat food and gas in the car. In turn, I cad a car or two in my face and on my head while I was trying to sleep. And that can't be done with a siamese in the household.

/I like the tase of bugying my raisins separate and my almonds seperate, and then mixing them on my own. I also noticed that for my veggies, its a better value in terms of quality of the product to buy the packages separate and mix them on my own. And the corn, I learned this week how to use the microwave and it was really good to have an ear. M.....m....m.

I continue to lose inches in fact if looking at me head on, I have a nice shape, looking sideways is another matter. And the inches losing isn't in cahoots with the lbs, go figure. Oh well... off for 10 minute nap and then onward.

I need to sit when I come home, but think I need to get my lunch packed in the pm, but maybe I just need to veg to sleep as well as I do.

Sunday morning notes~~I ned to remember to save changes, lots was lost here!

Sunday nite--lol, had a chance to spend the day with relatives and I did, now it's 10 pm and I'm just starting to cook my chicken for my lunches. When will I learn?

I bought two pairs of shoes today as well, a reward? Well, I have to retire those keds, not because I want to. And the others I wanted to go with my purple, we called them pedal pushers, not sure what the lenght is now.


I was walking in circles this am and finally left and went to the chilli spaghetti place, yeah, blew it, but that is also where I go when I'm thinking about things that bother me. and I didn't thnk that I was bothered by too much. Anyway, I got the most understanding waitress, and she asked me if I wanted more iced tea, as I was eating the spaghetti. Only she broke my train of thought, and I realized that I was thinking and processing stuff about a relative who is going through a tough time. I paraphrased to the waitress about what I was thinking, and she compared it to some thing of a similiar situation in her life. Hmm, guess no other waitress has asked me if I want a beverage refill at the same precise moment, didn't really realize it.

Well, tomorrow, again, I am aiming for no more than 1550, hm, maybe I'll revise that as well. Maybe I should begin to post when I get to 1550, the time of day. Hm, now that's an interesting self challenge

Monday__Well, I chose an earlier bedtime and didn't turn on my alarm and now my bodygot the sleep that it wanted and I'm headed out the door without stuff being done, in another busy week. 13 hours of work today and tomorrow. Lots of veggies in sacks......bother! Well, yesterday I got my quarters, so that won't put me down for a while when I decide to do the laundry.

Tuesday--another long day ahead, and I'm leaving this morning after not resetting my alarm right. Ugh......no lunch packed, I'm really in a rut for two days, then tomorrow evening i have hopes of getting back in gear, but two days not eating rught ahead of me.....what to do?

Later, well, the project part 1 ended early and I got a few hours off, why do I worry about things. I stopped for ice cream on the way home and then for a salad. There is 117 calories in a scoop of ice cream, and I had two scoops. Sometimes I miss the point. I didn't take the veggies, cause of time. And then at lunch time, they gave us the option of working through it and leaving early, and I took it. So, I was probably hungry, that is simple enough, isn't it? Well, no, for me it wasn't.

Wednesday evening, evening off, to do laundry and bake my chicken. This morning I had a green pepper, bananna, almonds and raisins for breakfast.

lol--someone has the washer and dryer...ugh!

Fast foods? this am, I ate an orange, bananna, green pepper, and a tomato for breakfast. Not much faster than that!

Am break, raisins and almonds

Lunch, vegetables, corn, string beans, etc.

Afternoon, small can of pepsi, hot tea, grapes

Pm, at work, didnt' want pepsi or other soda, just had another cup of tea.

I am so, not hungry and yet, I want to grab something to eat.....unbelievable....oh well!

    Yes, when we are in the midst of a lifestyle change we do still "cough stuff up". We don't lose our bad habits overnight. When I have that problem of wanting to eat even though I am not hungry I try to find something else to do for 20 minutes and see how I feel. If I still feel the need to put something in my mouth I try to stick with shaved ice (no syrup) or sugar free mints.
