Hope it's going good Jeanie !!

Last day off....boo ;/
Going to check and see if we have any more ribeyes in the freezer ~ if so will thaw those bad boys out and some shrimp yummy yummy

Thinking I might make a batch of meatballs to freeze today too
going to make that reuben casserole with thousand island ~ quick and easy.

I want to have plenty of things to take to work next 6 days ~ I go in at noon and don't get off till midnight, so I eat 2 meals at work....... and no one ever brings food ( ok, maybe 1-2 times a month ! ) except me. They order out and eat snacks all day and night...ugh.
If I have plenty of things to pull from freezer, I am a happy little clam eating my good food !

Weight this am 140.4 !

Haven't heard any more from you Jeanie, feeling any better ? Did today go ok ?

Today's food :

B- coffee with CO
L - made a big salad ~ pickled peppers, parm/reg cheese, tomato, pickled okra and we had the chicken from last night (buffalo) on the side.
S - had a small bowel of the reuben casserole (tasty !) and a protein shake ~ I have been wanting one for days:love

I used greek yogurt, strawberries,blueberries, blackberries ( just a couple of each ) protein powder, HWC and a little water ~~ it was really good

Walked Allie up and down road 2 times and played ball with her in the backyard. And I call that exercise .......

Was going to cook up a bunch of meatballs, I take 4-5 to work with ranch ~~ But I decided to make 6 hamb patties and do the same thing. I did saute onions and orange bell pepper with garlic and mixed that into the meat... had never done that, but saw it on TV so I tried it !

Need to finish up the laundry and a few dishes.... gotta gear up to work my 6 ........ oh well, that's ok .

Have a nice evening if anyone is reading this ..

morning ! Getting ready for work......

Scale is down again 139.4 !! Yippee !!! I'm in the 130's ( ok, barely)

Didn't eat much yesterday, just wasn't hungry, then after supper I got really queasy ..??? Not sure why, had tums and pepto and still felt yuck. Got up this morning and still kinda have a yucky tummy... wondering if it was the reuben casserole ? I only had a small bowel though. We'll see.

Gotta go do my hair and pack up all my goodies to eat at work . Have a great day !

ok, today I was super hungry !! Work went good. DH was in a great mood this evening when he got to the ER and he had everyone laughing. Glad he's settling in this new job.

Let me see if I can remember what I ate today. Kinda snacking all day.... but got home and got a hot shower and was STARVING !!

Coffee with CO
2 scrambled eggs
tuna with egg and mayo
Atkins shake
1oz peanuts
12 grapes
SF jello with HWC
2 hamb patties with cheese on top - dipped in ranch.

Yep, I ate the grapes, hamb patties, and jello as soon as I got home.

Weather was great this morning. upper 50's and sunny...so walked Allie about a mile before I headed to get Rx. barely made it to work on time, even though I left 1 1/2 hours before my shift. Welcome to my (rural) world .

Sitting here with heating pad to back. Blankie over lap and Allie staring at me....she's sleepy.

Gonna wind down and hit the hay . Have a great night

Home from work again......boy am I boring or what ??

Work went good. They had a big birthday party for the xray tech ( well, we did , in ER ) and had 2 cakes, a cookie cake, chips, dip, oh my gosh.....food everywhere.

Dh and I told her to pick a restaurant and we would buy her supper....Mexican food !!! I was good. I got the hamb steak with no sides except salad.
And, I ate NO CAKE or CHIPS ! I really wanted the one cake, it was still warm.....but I knew I would never stop at 1 piece

Food today :
Bulletproof coffee
Boiled egg
2 baked chicken legs with Linda's LC BBQ sauce
1 slim jim
1 atkins bar
couple of small pieces of pineapple
Hamb steak with grilled onions
Salad with ranch
Small amt of sausage with sauteed cabbage

Feel good that I didn't fall for the old sugar rush. I was surprised that I was actually tempted. I haven't been in a long time and that feels great

hoping to wake up back in the 130's ~~ was 140.2 last 2 days.

Did not get any exercise ( except all the running around all shift at work ) done today. Boo ;/

Sleep well everyone !

Did order 3 new scrub sets and I better lose some weight before they get here. I already have 3 brand new sets I paid a lot of money for ( really cute ones ) that I bought this summer/fall when I was 133.5 ~~ haven't worn them since I got stressed about my Dad and gained a few lbs.

Gotta get this weight off and get rid of all my "comfortable" ones so i have no option, I hate tight scrubs ~~~ think it looks gross at work.

Thanks Jeanie and Susan ! Glad y'all checked in with me

Had exactly ONE bite of that cake today........and was really thinking of eating a whole piece....had a headache that just wouldn't go away ! Was talking myself in and out of it, and guess what ????
Someone came to the ER and asked if any of us wanted to join the "relay for life" diet challenge till end of March !!!

Was God working on me or what ?? I jumped up and said "yes" !! I weighed and then watched everyone I am competing against eat cake and crap the rest of the shift ! haha ! I ate sausage/cabbage and a beef stick. I hope they keep eating ....

Good day at work, super sweet older Dr. He's great .<3 that can make a HUGE difference in how the shift goes . Home and sleepy, hope I can get up early and walk with Allie.

Today's food :
Coffee with co
Tuna with mayo and HB egg
20 grapes
SF jello
sausage/cabbage fried with bacon grease <3
1 oz peanuts
1 beef stick

Did some pilates before work

Have a nice night !

Tired ....... little bit stressful day.. Not a great Dr. today ;/

Today's food :
Coffee with CO
2 pieces of celery with PB
8 black olives
1/2 in of parm/reg cheese

About 1 cup of chopped brisket
1/2 oz peanuts
tuna packet with ranch

8 wings with ranch - ordered them out, wasn't supposed to have breading , but tasted and had the "mouth feel" of flour. ugh...... ordered a BUNCH cause I was starving. Ate 8 of them.
Will see how it affects the scale in the morning .

so tired, can't wait to get off tomorrow night and be OFF. Not sure if we are going out of town or not. Probably

Night all !

Well, made it to Ruidoso today ! Beautiful here, but no snow, we will head to a ski resort tomorrow to play in the snow. Had a good day yesterday and today, but I'm tired of being in the Tahoe !

Tried out an elliptical and recumbant (sp) bike in the hotel tonight. Boy, I'm really out of shape ~ that elliptical was HARD ! Then sat in hot tub with DH...... So glad we got out of town.

Today's food ;
coffee
HB egg and 1 sausage patty
1 stick of celery

Santa Fe grilled chicken salad from Chili's --- good

Ribeye
broccoli
green beans

Snacks - 1 beef stick, 2 small dill pickles, ~~~ may have some peanuts or a atkins bar before I sleep

TTYL ! Sleep well everyone !

Well we went to Ski Apache today ~~ it was so beautiful

Walked Allie around in the snow and she got to run loose, we walked up and down the hills. Really beautiful out there . We love the weather and wonderful scenery too .

Was good with food today :

coffee
hb egg and 2 pieces of sausage

Toppings to 3 slices of meatlover's pizza with jalapenos
11 wings with ranch.

We skipped lunch and ate at 5 ~~ I was starving !

just got out of hot tub with DH at hotel. Gonna chill and watch TV and just relax ~~ we are pretty pooped.

Have a nice evening !

Home now. Tired, but we did enjoy our trip. Funny story about me mixing up my days, will explain tomorrow when I'm rested. Just bathed Allie~ she is so happy to be home.

Sheets in dryer and DH and I have had our hot showers, nice to just relax and be out of the car. Stopped in several towns on the way home and found 2 RV's that we REALLY liked, just need to decide if we want to pay for one ! haha !

Will check in tomorrow !

Morning ! To explain about mix up ~ LONG and Boring post ( and sometimes TMI )

We got up the other morning and DH said let's load everything up cause we aren't coming back here and we went in to town. You would have to know me, I always want a Tshirt when we go somewhere...... Kinda quirky I know, but every time i wear them I remember about that trip ;0

Well, I got my Tshirt and Christmas ornament ( this is kinda a fetish for me..... I lOVE Christmas ornaments ) and we headed to Cloudcroft as planned to look around. After driving around, DH and I were not too impressed and saw no where we wanted to stay, DH says " you ready to head back to Ruidoso?" and I ( thinking why would I want to head north when in a few hours we will just have to drive south for hours ) said " no lets just get going "

OK......... about 7-8 hours later, when we are in TEXAS again, I said "it is Friday isn't it ?" and of course DH says "Nooooooo, it's just Thursday !" I wanted to scream! Don't know why I thought it was Fri that morning !! We could have played in the snow another day

Oh well, that's what a ditz I am sometimes.......He just meant that morning that we would find another place to stay that night......ugh......

Anyway, I stayed on plan ALL WEEK, with no cheats !!! And I have to admit, twice I had really bad cravings for a Hot Fudge Sundae from DQ ~~ I love them But, I didn't have even one bite of anything off plan ! Woohoo !

Did of course have my usual problem with constipation ( I warned you TMI .....too much riding in the car I guess.......
Packed my celery to have one big piece each day......and the 3rd day the fridge in the hotel froze it ! Never got more and that's when the problems started. I had at least 3 big salads, green beans, onions, peppers,jalapenos twice, and some turnip greens.....you would think that would be enough. Drank 3 big gulps of mag citrate last night about midnight.........

Then this morning ~~ woohoo !! Tummy feels so much better and is so much flatter now ! Thanks mag citrate

Weight this morning 140.8
Weight Mon am before we left town 140.2 -- I'm happy with that, worried that eating out would put on lots of water weight

Okay, enough about me.....Have a great day everyone !

haha ! No problem Debby, just making sure

No, SIl says she will still use it, but she hasn't since Sept. -- she does hcg and gains all her weight back and then does it again....not sure how much she exercises. I don't ask too many questions KWIM ?

sorry about your son in law and the stress...will lift you all up !
