Catch Up

Today starts my fourth week of Weight Watchers.  I have lost a total of 9 lbs. Pretty impressive if I could keep the momentum. When I woke up today, fully expecting to have dropped a pound or 2, I had not.  No gain, but still. Boo.  Not losing makes it really easy to want to pull in a drive through and get a delicious chicken biscuit cause your all like, "well I weighed today, I can work that off by next week, blah blah" but I didn't.  I powered through and am now having my fat free yogurt and fruit.  It's good, not chicken biscuit good, but nevertheless.

Last weekend we were on the way to a kid friends bday party.  We stopped at Target to get the kid a gift and Scarlet was being a tool.  When we left Target ($43 later, Gah why?) she decided that kicking me in the face was a good plan as I buckled her in her car seat.  I wanted to punch her but I refrained.  I got in the car and pulled out all the "You're cruisin' for a bruisin', I'm gonna spank the mess out of you" bull shit I had in me and she just looked up and said, "Momma? Please don't spank alla my mess out me ok?"  I have a strong feeling the age of 3 is going to make me bald.

I think my prob with losing last week was not using my WW cookbook.  I eat mega healthy throughout the day no questions, but when I get home I look for convenience.  Now don't get me wrong, my convenient is still healthy, but not WW healthy.  We have a deep freeze, a beer fridge with freezer, and our normal indoor kitchen fridge/freezer.  That is 3 freezers.  We have a lot of bulk meat that we are not willing to get rid of or let go to waste.  So when we decide to have a healthy Taco Bowl dinner that's around 5 points, I fail to acknowledge that we are using full fat ground beef (instead of turkey) and don't bother adjusting my points... Dumb I know.  Time to buckle down, and by buckle down I mean eat one less piece of bacon Saturday morning.

Scarlet keeps telling her teachers I am pregnant.  They keep asking me.  Like even when I have on a tight shirt and a flat stomach. WTF.

Last weekend my sister and I went to Pure Barre with a friend.  Please tell me what the fuck I was thinking.  My only form of exercise is walking to the outdoor fridge to get a beer.  Pure Barre guys.  That shit should be a) illegal, b) used in jail to punish inmates, or c) FREE.  I absolutely hated it.  I left class 3 times, twice I threw up part of a plum and water.  What I am trying to tell you is that I would rather run 6 miles than ever do it again.  After class I told the girl in front of me that I threw up.  She said "yeah, I have been doing this for over 2 years and I still feel like that every class!"  What the fuck?  Torture.  I will tell you this though, those bitches looked HOT!

Last but MOST IMPORTANT, I really did quit smoking!  It has been a week today!  And I bought those boots I wanted and my genius husband had the idea that I put $5 (cost of a pack) a day in a jar and at the end of the month go buy something.  I like where his head is at!

Have a good Thursday!


  1. Ok why wasn't it working from my reader? I'm so proud of you and am going to do my own post like this!

  2. Sweet Niece, you know that the fact that you quit smoking is AWESOME! I am so very proud of you and you should be proud of yourself! You are saving damage to your child's lungs/well-being as others around you! I know you can keep it up! Good luck on your diet! I know the feeling! I am tired, so tired of being fat....it is time to let go of the immediate indulgence of some yummy, but fattening food and just get healthy! You are an inspiration to me! I'm posting on FB too. Love you all! mh/pooka

  3. WAY TO GO ON QUITTING SMOKING!!! Seriously, this will help with the weight loss big time. It will also help with your life long health too!

    Also, I text my sister with my points every day for some extra accountability. Having to show someone else how bad you ate will not surprisingly make you get your rear in gear.

  4. Sorry you hated Pure Barre! I love it and it really has changed my body... one of my favorite things about it is that it doesn't get easier and become "routine"... I think that's why it works so well. AND one of the major reasons I love it is the instructors and the people involved. They do look HOT and inspire me to want to look that way too!

  5. Yay for no smokes!

    Now I need to try Pure Barre. I'm all about a workout that makes me puke.

  6. Congrats on the 9 - I get the same irritation when I think I have lost but didn't but 9 is awesome!! And this whole post just had me cracking up, I love it. Keep up the good work on the smoking - that is HUGE!
