Thursday, February 14th 2013Took Nic out to 99s tonight. Argued with myself over the prime rib and the salmon. Alas, VD only comes once a year, and the prime rib won out. But, small victories - I only ate 1/2 of it and brought the other half home. Asked for the take out box right up front, and packaged it before I even began. Not too exciting, but if I don't pat myself on the back every now and then, no one will.
Saturday, February 9th 2013So the kids are out playing, Nic is shoveling, and I am inside. I tried shoveling for about half an hour and had to come in. Dizzy, out of breath, and shaking from feeling weak. I know it is sexist, but I should be the one doing the physical stuff, and Nic doing the sweet mommy nurturing stuff. I wish I could do more. I use to. Hopefully I will be able to again. That I can't right now, annoys me.
Tuesday, January 29th 2013So I've been losing weight consistently, and am happy with myself - but today was a train wreck. Breakfast was the Glucerna and lunch consisted of my bowl of soup - as usual. But then when I got home, I ate a bunch of the left over rotisserie chicken that the fam had last night. I was so ashamed. I'm feeling weak of will. Then I scarfed the homemade chicken nuggets Nic made with a chicken breast and shake and bake. So much for cleansing myself of animal products. And to add insult to inju...
Friday, January 18th 2013So I've lost 19 pounds since November. I had a little bump up in weight due to Christmas, but overall, I'm down 19. 1 pound away from my first goal.
Sunday, January 6th 2013so i'm going semi-vegan. trying to rid myself of diabetes meds and sleep apnea. Starting with the "beans and greens" philosophy towards my diet. We'll see how it goes. Biggest worry is I won't get enough of the proper things my body needs and I don't know what the heck I'm doing. But we'll see how it goes.
