Girls, I am sorry for being so MIA, there is no time between the commute 1.25 hours each way 1.75 when I get Bobby after work in the traffic, go to Nan's then come home eat and go to sleep to get up at 5:00 am. But I went to try on clothes for Spring this weekend, and saw myself in the mirror and suddenly knew where the excess weight has gone straight to me butt and thighs, oh my!!!! So I am playing racquetball on the weekends with Tony that is a great stress reliever and yesterday I started back on strict low carb, I cant control a lot of things going on right now but I can choose what I slide down my gullet, so back at it, I worked to hard getting this weight off, and am not going to blow it now. No word on the house, we have no idea all we know is the seller's bank will contact us with 2 weeks notice til settlement, this Wed will be 6 weeks at Mom's, not that I am counting, LOL I am so torn, as badly as I want the house to be ready then I know I will not be able to be with Nan as much and I am still so worried, I am over the dying part she somehow survived 2 surgeries, but the rehab is hard everything hurts her that is tough to watch, she just so enjoys us being there it breaks my heart when I go to leave and she says please dont leave, but I am trying!

So yesterday I had
Protein shake
Tuna mixed with a hardboiled egg, onion, celery and mayo
2-string cheeses
another protein shake
baked trout and salad,

and a ton of water, I said I wasnt going to weigh until Monday but I had to look, 4.8 pounds off in one day of carb detox!!!!!!I know this will work if I give it a fair shake, lord knows I have not been low carb in some time and obviously eating crap isnt the answer!!!!!

Well last night Bobby had his first game, they won 6-0 but he struck out both times, ughgh he is so mad, Mom has been taking him to this hitting coach, and he was hitting so well last Fall he is in a funk, but hey they won. Day 2 of not eating, I thought of all the opportunities I had to stick crap down my mouth the stuff is everywhere, but I am so proud of not doing it!!! I must get this off like it finally hit me square in the face, do this or I will be back to where I was in no time, it is going to be a constant struggle for the rest of my life!

So here is what I had yesterday:
Protein Shake
Ground grass fed beef
Chick Fi La grilled salad, very good
Sugar free pudding

Starving so have to eat a little more not sure what or when to eat! We cant eat at our desks which is a good thing!

I love Chick-fil-A's grilled chicken salad...it's my favorite fast good salad, hands down. Sometimes I get an extra grilled chicken filet to add to it for additional protein.

Happy Hump Day, pretty lady! Looks like you've got a good plan in place.

3 days under my belt, OMG it is hard to stay sober with the carbs but I am doing it!

Nan had a good report with the ortho doc she can now bear weight on her new hip, but the wrist and arm is still an issue, rehab gal says she will walk and do stairs in no time, she is so determined, I am trying to think if my poor Nan at 91 is fighting like this I can keep my darn trap shut!

Yesterday I had
Protein shake, I use my Bev International powder with almond milk
Wendy's grilled chicken cesar very good and croutons are separate!
Dinner ground taco turkey meat with some cheese melted on it

Still get ravenous but I am
not weighing until Monday! Have my niece's first communion on Saturday food issues abound but I am going to try to be good!

Boss and hubby are leaving for FL so me and the new guy are alone at the office, OMG it is going to be nuts!

so one week of being really strict, and I lost 3 pounds, I swear I was ready to hurl that MF scale right out the window, but oh well, better than gaining which I seem to be good at so back at it this week, maybe a big whoosh will come!

Bobby lost his game, my niece's first communion was beautiful, she is such a gorgeous little girl and her gown and hair she looked liked an angel! We took pictures on the Ipad so they were bigger for Nan to see, she is doing pretty well, I hate when I leave her in that nursing home, I just want to shove her in the car with me, but we are hoping it wont be too long there.

I did get some kefir I am going to start drinking that again!

Hey girlies, I have some good news, my Nan might be coming home to my aunts by the beginning of June! They are so pleased with how hard she is working!!!!! I am praying! My Gram is just amazing, at 91 to have the determination that she does!!!!

On a funny note I got some self tanner, I am a beautiful shade of carrot, LOL

Still being careful we will see what the nasty scale says on Monday!

Got tickets to see Kid Rock and Kool and the Gang this summer, my cousin and husband are renting a Mercedes Bus to take us there, July 4th weekend, pretty excited!!!!

Oh girls, life has been a downward spiral for me, it is now over 12 weeks of waiting for the house, so stressed about that, nothing seems to work weight loss wise, I am just spinning in a circle, lose gain lose gain, I have this ovarian cyst that is getting bigger but she says its blood filled and should burst on its own or dissolve, Nan came home on Friday that is good news but the reality of her being home is scary! My poor aunt is not sure what will happen! Still have the commute, but that will get better after 6/10 when school gets out! I am so depressed that I have let myself get so out of control and how quickly the weight comes piling back on! Since the surgery my stomach is still flat but I gained it all in my butt and thighs, my thighs are so gross from excess skin and now lovely dimply fat ughggh! But I can keep ignoring it or get my act together and do something! Poor Tony I ask him to help me then when he says should you be eating that I get pissed off and yell at him! I think the biggest downfall has been the lack of exercise we are playing racquetball on the weekends which I love but I have not been to the gym to lift in months, and it shows, have not been running, etc. Ughghg so depressing but I need to get over it get real and do something before I am 300 pounds again!

I did do the mud run, and I have to say it was way harder than I thought it would be and one of the most empowering days ever! I did every obstacle and finished that race, I was sore for a week! Luckily there was little running, it was on a moutainside, and the ground so was muddy and rocky it was impossible to run! There were a few obstacles that were really demanding, one I will post was the cargo net, OMG I was so scared, 20' tall and starring at the concrete below I was freaking out, but the team talked me through, I got to the top and was like OMG I have to climb over, LOL I only knew the one girl on the team but the others were so nice, I will do it again next year for sure.

Nan came home, it is a little scary though she is still scared walking, and it is hard for her, the dementia seems to be getting worse, but she wanted to be home, so I have to help my aunt as much as I can while I am living close by it is going to be harder when we move and we are over an hour away.

Bobby has been sick lately, had strep now bronchitis, he is never sick so that has been rough, still playing baseball having a good season.

Tony is still my rock somehow he keeps me as sane as he can! He feels fat he said he is sure once we get back in our house and our stress levels diminish it will be easier to lose weight, even he has gained 10 pounds and is obsessing over it. He is logging in a tracker, and he sees if I do it or not, LOL

So here are some pics of the run!

I gotta get back at this and get some weight off nothing fits, I am so depressed!!!!!


This was before the mud run, all nice and clean! I was the oldest by 10 years but we started and finished all together the girls were incredible!!!!


Here is my fat butt getting over the cargo net,that was so hard and so scary!!!!!! I was proud of myself!


Here was the finish, OMG I was never so muddy in my life, LOL It took a few days to get my nails in order again< LOL

First of all, you look GREAT -- very fit, firm and toned. You never give yourself enough credit! And, you have been through two super stressful life events in the past 3 months with Nan's illness, the move and the temporary housing situation. Once Nan gets settled at home and you and Tony and Bobby move into your new place, life will get easier again. And staying on plan will get easier again too.

You will get to your goal weight. But in the meantime, revel in the fact that you are a very beautiful blonde who is loved dearly by Tony. He thinks you are perfect so keep that in your head the next time you feel down! As a fellow Virgo, I should also tell you that June is going to be a very good month for us. We have Gemini in our 10th house of career/recognition/money so expect that you will continue to shine at your job and perhaps get another raise or bonus too!
