Corn Day 2010

Corn day starts early with a trip to Gritts to get the corn this trip only 28 dozen despite only asking for 20 dozen. Then a little over 2 hours to shuck and gather. A trip to my house to wash, blanch, cool, cut, bag and seal. Just finished up about 60 quarts but it sure will taste good this winter even though it was 11 hrs of hard work.

Another fresh picked breakfast

The garden is looking kinda rough. Too humid and too many bugs have kept me out of the garden. But still enough veggies for breakfast. We even have fresh peaches now. I could kick myself for not getting that fresh egg from the coop. I would have made an omelet. Sick of counting every calorie and point, I am anti monitoring thus weekend. I will start back on Monday but I think I will go back to Lose It.

My view lately

Working my butt off lately figuratively not literally. All I do is work right now which seems to throw everything off. My eating is out of control. I have only exercised 2x this week and the WW online is getting on my nerves. It is not as easy as Lose It.

Kids are Hard

I have been babysitting for friends from Thus to Saturday night and wow kids are hard. I was unable to exercise other than a short swim between kids. I am glad I came to the conclusion at a young age I am too selfish for kids. Sure they are cute and cuddly and usually smell good but they take everything from you and you have no time for you. So stepping on the scale this morning I have lost a big zero. Weight loss and kids don't go together I learned that this week.

Praying for the rain to stop

Haddie Rose was caught out in the rain today and now looks like she is praying it stops because she likes it outside. Although we need the rain I had planned on working outside this evening weed eating as my exercise. I did eat well and will have fruit this evening for snack. I may get out and just hand weed my flower beds.

My new toy

Despite the fact my toy came in today, two days earlier than expected, I still mowed and swam. A better food day as well even though one of those families gave me a cupcake AND a cheesecake bite ;). It is all good and accounted for.

So far so great

Great pool workout, my arms are jello right now, ate fantastic other than a little debbie cake, need a little more protein though. Getting ready to go Krogering to find foods for my lunch this week.

Scales don't lie

Well my fears were right. I have gained 2 lbs this week. My goal for this week is to make sure those 2 lbs are gone this time next week. So I will be eating more meals like this one all week.

Starting my day the Fresh Picked Way

I just downed a 5 hour energy shot trying to get my exercise mojo moving. Went out and picked my breakfast and snacks for the day. Waiting an hour or so before weighing in because I am scared of what it will be.

I did get some more exercise...

Walking around the mall spending money. Now I know why I rarely go to the mall. Tennis shoes, bras, earrings, tarts and Mariah some school clothes over $200. But I have to say that lately my dad has just given me $1000 just being nice, which I am using on my credit card. Jackie won almost $3000 gambling in the last few days and she gave me $250. So I guess I won't ask her to pay her part of the cell phone bill this month. My family is great!!!

Scale hates me

UGH. I can't get back on track. I am not getting my exercise in because life is getting in the way. I have just a little too much and not moving enough. Things have got to change soon. I did get to swim for 40 min today until it started storming. Tomorrow is another day.

Nature Walk

I think I may give up swimming for a few days to see if I can jump start myself again. My eating has been bad without my WW online to log my food. I know that is not at excuse but I am back online and back on track with a nature walk with my dogs. Got a few great pics of wildflowers too and a lot more sweat than swimming.

I think I want to be mad

I was rear ended last night sitting at a stop light and I don't have internet access and I am not losing weight. I think I may be mad for a little bit.

Even my pictures sucked

So humid this week any picture I took looked like it was in a fog and I tried to go out in the woods to take pictures this week but between working 2 twelve hour days and the HEAT. This was as good as it got. This little spider caught between my door frames trying to escape the heat.

I am blaming this

This was the beginning of my downfall this week. A family gave me this ice cold coke from an antique working cake machine. Since that day I have eaten crap and have not exercised. I can't get it back. The only thing I am hanging on is so far the scale has remained the same and weigh in is Sunday so I am going to exercise tomorrow and although I did eat better today. I can do better tomorrow

No Matter What Potato Salad is NOT a diet food 14.5 points

Near 100 for next few days

Walked this morning before it got hot and it was already 89. I love to exercise in the morning when I can get up and get going. Wish I could kick my butt and do it everyday.

Still shocking

I always take the picture but today my sister took a pic of me in a bathing suit. Even though I have lost 30+ pounds it was still shocking to see me plus I have not done very well this week even eating at McD's for dinner and not exercising today. Well back to healthy tomorrow and the dreaded weigh in.

Moment of weakness

Pancakes, one of my favorite foods, are causing me weakness. The scales show a 2 lb gain. So got mad and ate some pancakes. Makes perfect sense. UGH!!!

I have not swept, ran dishwasher, done laundry, etc. this week. Some may call me lazy but I see it as battling OCD.

Bad week

One of my dad's employee's stole my digital camera, luckily not my new one, my dad does not believe they did it but they were all in my house alone, scale moving up, kinda makes me want to eat, so started walking today 2.6 miles, but that is causing knee pain, on the bright side the weather is fantastic, 70's and sunny with no humidity.
