You are too kind, Rebecca! Thank you. I feel like I have miles and miles to go.....I'm trying hard to be kind to myself, but it's hard. :blush: Thank you for your thoughtfulness!

My hubby just colored my hair! It looks great. I'm glad he was brave enough to do it for me!

This week is going to be Crazy!

I want to start doing the Fly lady thing so in the morning I have some chores! I might do two on Mon and two on Tues to make up for me not being at home Weds or Thurs. My mama is have exploratory surgery on Weds. I'm not sure how well she will fair after so I'll stay with her just in case!

I am not tired AT ALL and I really need to go to sleep so I can wake my kidlet up at 6 AM... I am a night owl I want to GO to sleep at 6am! I might just do that and get some cleaning done tonight. Who knows.

You might see me back on here for an update or you might not.

I made bacon a while ago and am just now eating some. I don't like the thick cut as much as the super thin. =/ The only thing I DO like is that it's covered in black pepper. I love BP. I might not be on for a couple days. It depends on if I have internet access at my mom's house. I'll be there till Thursday. I'm not worried at all about the eating. I just don't want to be away from LCF!

My body feels a little different. Just a little. I haven't weighed or measured yet. I want to keep going for a bit and really have some results!

I'm at my mom's (well her friends home) while she consumes 4 liters of laxative. She has to have an endoscopy and colonoscopy tomorrow in the AM. While I was in town I went to my friends health food store and picked up some extra virgin coconut oil that is unrefined and organic. Man is that stuff delish! It smells like coconut cream pie! It takes like a mounds (but no sugar). I love it. I sucked the spoon Dry! LOL I am definitely going to like my coconut regimen! I wasn't going to come back on, but I just had to post about it! The kind I got is called NOW. It melts instantly the minute it touches your tongue. I thought I would have issues with the texture, but I didn't!

I probably need to mention that I think I am a super taster..So things taste much bolder to me. My friends/family always make fun of my love for bland things, but they aren't bland to me!

Everything went well with mom! I ate on plan, never thinking once about cheating. That's a feat in itself! LOL I took my favs with me.. Nuts, precooked sausage, Mio, and I bought SF Tropical popsicles. It's my new obsession! I feel a lot different in my body. I'm starting to get Jiggly Puff! Very stoked about that! The only downside was that I didn't get to eat or drink enough today. =| I honestly couldn't help it. Nuts can only get you so far. Ya know?

I am crazy tired, but I want to clean up my den! Maybe I'll put the TV on and clean while I watch.

Still inlove with hot dogs and bacon! LOL It just doesn't get old (YET!).

Go, go jiggly puff! (Are you familiar with Pokemon? I have a 10 y.o., so I am way familiar with this Jiggly Puff Pokemon!)

Glad things went well for your mom!

Yes I know JP on Pokemon! =D I'm very glad too! She's a cancer survivor. So these tests and scans are always extra scary!

I woke up absolutely pissed at myself this morning! Wanna know why???

Because I was eating carby food in my dream! I watch my dreams like a movie or tv show.. I can't control them... So I would see myself starting to eat something I can't have and then I would start yelling at myself "Don't do it! Don't do it!"... Kinda like in scary movies when you yell at the character to "don't go in there".

I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad to know I could wake up from that nightmare! It was awful!

I didn't sleep last night at all! I did have a steak at 4 am though! LOL Hey it was breakfast time, sorta! Did a lot of chores this morning! Took a nap around 11:30.. Got up briefly at 2:30 (when son got off the bus) and then it was back to the couch I went! I just woke up at 5:15! I feel pretty good! I'm going upstairs to do MORE laundry.. Prob have 4 more loads to do! That's way better than what it was! First I'm off to have a hot dog! YummY.. I need some water too! I am dry as a bone! Then I still have to find time to cook, swiffer wetjet the kitchen, and load the dishwasher@

I think I'll go start the laundry!

Howdy!!! I've had a full day of Soccer practice, laundry, cleaning the kitchen, cooking my delicious green bean/chicken soup! I didn't add bacon this time, BUT I added a splash of HWC for some mouth feel. It tastes VERY similar to my chicken and dumplings broth! It's sooooooooooooooooooo YummY!!! My guys went off to the hockey game tonight. I almost went BUT I opted for a peaceful night at home! There is a storm a brewing and the wind and SMELL are magnificent! I haven't had my bacon fix in a couple days.. I'm jonesing for some!

I can't tell you how stress releasing it is to not have 600 loads of laundry to stare at and worry about! LOL I have a load of towels I need to fold and then I am officially done! WOOT

I think I'll go watch a netflix movie. =D

See you guys tomorrow!

I am soo agitated! This is what I get for not reading the damn labels....

PLEASE don't assume the a "diet" drink will be sugarfree.

6 diet crushes in I decided to look at the label and it has 5 sugars!

In the past I would've eating emotionally... But I didn't!

I just picked my devastated self up and kept movin' on.

Hi Rebecca-

I've been snooping through your journal (by invitation, of course!) and I'm wondering what your coconut oil routine is? I love the smell, and I use it in some cooking and as a moisturizer for my face and arms. What else should I be doing with it?

And... is your mom doing okay now?

Thanks for sharing your journal. You can find mine at "Raini's Ramblings."

Awesome to see you Raini! Of course you are always welcome here! =D My mama is doing awesome! They only found one small polyp that was removed and a small fatty tumor (lipoma) completely harmless... They also took some scrapings and are testing it for Celiac Disease. So wer should know something in a couple weeks!

I JUST started with the Coconut oil! I eat it.. Straight out of the jar. Sometimes I eat a tablespoon of it (3 times a day) or I just dip out a teaspoon amount several times a day. My hands were crazy dry before and now the are very healthy. Like right now for instance.. I feel a bit sluggish and yucky... I know when I go eat some oil in a min I will feel 100% better! It's the weirdest thing!

I bought the Extra Virgin unrefined CO.. I am very happy with it!

What is up with me? I keep dreaming of eating bad foods! Ack!

I also got stressed out because my best friend's sister's BF died in a wreck yesterday (who was also BFF with my nephew!).. I made some pudding (SF) and ate a small amount. I figured I would curb my desire for sweets. It did! Almost all of it is still sitting in my fridge. I might feed it to my kidlet or my hubby.

Sorry about the BFF of your nephew. That is so sad.

Good job on stopping with a small amount of pudding. I can't even start, or I might not stop!
