That's all I can think of write now. Wonder how I can do all of this in one day? Any ideas? Actually I would have less than that because DH gets off at 1:00 tomorrow. Maybe I should just skip all of these and sleep late.
Hmm...clean as soon as you get up, go for a walk in the mall w/ your iPod, have lunch w/ a friend at the mall food court around 11 so that you have time to go home, take a shower from your strenuous cleaning and walking before DH gets home.

Or just sleep in. I don't think that it will make you feel as fulfilled, though.

Me, too, actually!

We went to Todai in Seattle w/ friends, then to a movie, that's why I wasn't here. I'm bushed now and need to sleep!

Saturday night I ate 1/4 bag of Tim's Cascade potato chips to keep myself alert while driving--it works for a while. My weight has been between 196-197.5 since then! GO BACK DOWN!!!

Note that I haven't changed my stats because I want to believe that it's water retention. How could I have really gained 3 pounds of fat from a few ounces of potato chips? Then again...why is it still here?!

I'm going to ensure that I drink 12+ cups of water, no fruity tea, and lots of fat today...if nothing happens by tomorrow...well...nothing will happen! I guess that I'll then do it for another day.

"Financial" Yes, it was. Friday was expensive, and I really wanted to bail on it, but it had been planned and our friends didn't want to change plans.

Saturday, I didn't even buy anything at the bookstore because they didn't have anything that I felt was a necessity. At the conference, I got the kit for kids--to teach them about money--for $50, which is a good price, and I was going to buy it after Christmas for more than that.

We all loved the conference--went w/ the same friends who "made" us spend a million dollars the night before. JK...I know that it was, ultimately, our choice. We had Whole Foods for lunch because I left our homemade lunch at my parents' house (oops!), then we went to Denny's after the conference. I really wasn't happy about that because we had agreed ahead of time that we would be getting deli food at Safeway. I have to get more persistant about things.

We all agreed that the conference was motivational and informative! I'm glad that it wasn't just a big pep talk. Friends said that they're going to work on a budget when they each have a day off together.

The evening w/ Anita Renfroe was a gift to my SIL, paid w/ MY money (DH and I each get an allowance to spend on whatever we want), so that's how THAT night fit into our budget.

Oh, and our date night consisted of sitting in the hot tub discussing money to spend on Christmas. We saved (or didn't spend) money last night!

Chew ice next time?
Good idea. I didn't want to stop at a mini-mart, but now that I know it will stick around for D-A-Y-S, I'll spend the extra 15 minutes to get something that I should be eating. Actually, I could have just stopped the car to get the lunch from the trunk--since we had left it at my parents' house, we still had all of that. What WAS I thinking?


Quote:

Yes, it does, and you were supposed to say something like, "Keep drinking water; I'm sure it will be gone in another day or 2." JK! I'm not sure that it will be gone, but I can keep trying. I really am genuinely confused about why it's still here.

Glad you had a good time! And I have been having to get more "persistent" lately too. It's very difficult for me to do. If I don't watch it DH tends to get out of hand from time to time too and I don't realize it. But it's all good.

I was in a hurry this morning, and only had time for a short post. After I got offline, I realized that I had left out that info.

I ate a ton of fat yesterday, and tried to remember to drink a lot of water, but I don't think that I drank more than 8 cups, if that. Not sure because I forgot to use my pitcher. (I fill an 8-cup carafe in the mornings, then fill my glass from that so that I can see how much I have or haven't drank that day.)

What I ate yesterday:
* 4 slices of thick bacon w/o blotting off the grease (I just remembered that some people actually do that! )
* kale cooked in bacon grease w/ onions, garlic, salt, pepper
* pork cutlets dipped in egg then ground pork rinds, then deep-fried, topped w/ about 1 tsp tonkatsu sauce (SUGARY, but I really, really wanted it because I only have tonkatsu every few years and it's one of my favorite foods)
* coconut oil--2 TBSP, I think
* cabbage and onions cooked in soy sauce, butter, sesame oil, hot chili oil
* a square or 2 of a CHOCOperfection milk chocolate bar

Today's weight

192.5


I haven't seen that number since 2007, I think. I got down to 178 then, but gained back the 30 lbs that I had lost--plus 5 more.

I am SO excited to still be losing weight!!

I made Chex Party Mix yesterday, and am staying away from it! I ate a bunch of the nuts, and a couple of Cheerios and Chex, and I was OK with that, but THEN I picked a Chex from the bowl and I could feel it starting...the desire to stuff my face w/ Chex Party Mix! So, I didn't eat any more! I do NOT want to get derailed by cereal! It's not even creamy or chocolate!

So, I'm retaining a good bit of water today--too many salty nuts before bed w/o a ton of water.

Today's weight
192.5!
