Sooooooo.... I'm up and running this AM.  Ok, maybe not running.  But I AM up!  Be proud!  Especially since I was up much later than I meant to be last night.  First I was hanging with a friend, then I got to reading, then I was texting the hubby, and THEN I discovered a massive leak under the sink.  That put me in bed pretty late.  But I did fall asleep pretty fast for a change!  LOL  I guess I was super tired after all of that.  Anyways, I am still a bit tired this AM, but not massively like I have been.  That's a good sign.  A really good sign.  I am going to continue my meds today (which I need to take NOW) and not over-do it.  I don't want to burn out fast.  I mostly plan on doing some more clean up around the house but nothing too intense.  Just want to pick up toys and things so that when it is time to really do some big time cleaning, the little stuff is out of my way and I can hopefully go quicker.  I hope to dig in on Sunday if I feel good.  I'd like to really knock out a big section that day.  The kiddos have a party to go to, so I am hoping that while they are gone, I can do a bit of rearranging and purging.  That is if I can get oldest to finish up some homework today and finally clean his room.  His room is bad.  If I have to do it, it's not going to be pretty folks because a TON of stuff is going to go missing.  I'm DONE asking him.  Today is his final shot. 

Just realized I forgot to check my weight this AM.  But I don't suspect a loss or anything.  I'd say it's the same or close to.  I know my diet hasn't been great and that's all my fault.  With being sick, all I've wanted is carbs carbs carbs.  BLEH.  Things like rice, noodles, and toast.  Even cereal.  And you all know I'm not a huge cereal person.  I rarely eat it.  But over the last couple of weeks I feel like I've been a carb hog.  I need to change that.  I need to get back to more fruits and veggies and lean meats.  Less processed stuff!  And less eating out.  It's been more than normal in the last couple of weeks, so that needs to come to a stop.  I even had take out last night -- pizza!  But it's time to reign it back in.  It hasn't been a ton, but it's been too much.  And our budget isn't helped by it any.  Although, we didn't go to the store except one time, so that is good.  I will need to go again one day this week, though.  I need random things like celery.  LOL

Well, I don't have much to talk about today since my last post was so long, but I do want to say how crazy I think some of these weight loss calculators are.  A friend of mine posted one that she tried and it said that for my height and age, (32 at 5'4'') I should weigh 120lbs.  Ummm... yeah, not happening.  No way on EARTH am I going to go that low and she was sorta upset because she is still over 200lbs. and she said she almost felt like giving up because that was so nuts.  I told her it WAS nuts and to find another one that was realistic.  Or better yet, to listen to herself, her body, and her Doc.  Not some online calculator or method.  I think it was the Hamwi Method.  The lowest I know I have ever been is 136 and even then, I was gaunt.  My body is just not built to be 120lbs. unless I want an uber strict lifestyle and that just isn't going to happen.  No way, no how.  I refuse to be miserable to be skinny.  Just not worth it to me.  Ok, that's it for me today.  Onwards!


  1. Hmm.. Carbs. To me, carbs can be a good thing and a bad thing. But overall, I don't think you should stressed over eating too much carbs. It is the primarly source of energy for you! :) If you don't have enough, your body will start breaking down your tissue to get proteins and then convert that to energy! (which is bad!!) So, as long as your not overeating, I'm sure the crabs won't hurt you much! :)

    Haha, and dont' stress on the Pizza! It's always nice to enjoy it once in a while! :)

    Btw, thank you so much for your kind comments. I really really appreciate it :)

  2. We've been going to restaurants too much too, and the extra sodium always makes me bloat. Uck. I have to weigh in tomorrow, and I feel like maybe my weight will be the same. Even though I was three thousand under my calories for the week, I felt like I was eating junkier stuff and not enough veggies. Just have to see tomorrow, I guess.
    I love carby items. That was the hardest thing for me to learn to eat in normal human (instead of normal ogre/giant/other giant humanesque creature) sized portions.


Feel free to comment -- I love reading them and I try to respond! :D
