How to lose 3 lbs overnight

Vomit and do, um, other things for 3 hours straight.

I got so sick the other night. I assume it was some sort of food poisoning. I felt horrible and for the whole day after could hardly eat for fear it would trigger another round of technicolor yawns.

I feel better today. I guess the 3 lb loss was good b/c I ate some cheesecake today. I shouldn't have, but it was good. I also didn't eat other things so that I could have the cheesecake. So, really, I guess there was no reason I couldn't have it. I just need to make sure I don't let that be my ticket to bad eating.

Holidays. I can't wait until they are done. I wish we could have them w/out the food.

Have you ever?

Have you ever tried on the cutest outfit...looked yourself over in the mirror 200 times to make sure you look okay, from every single angle...walk out the door, strut like you are hot. Go shopping, hang with the friends, work, whatever. Then you see someone in a mirror or window and see them sporting an outfit that looks just like yours, but not near as hot as you are, because, well, look at how short their legs are, or how many rolls they have bulging out of their shirts, and...wait...oh sh**, that is YOU!
I do that all the time. And I want it to stop.

What about you?

I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.

Literally. I have been in my bed for pretty much the last 3 days. I crawl out to attempt to go to work, come home after about 2 hours and sit in my bed until it is time to go get my kids...which it is now.
I went to the dr. and it is allergies and not a cold. I don't know how he knew the difference but hey, I got medication and if it works I will be forever grateful for the diagnosis. I also have pink eye. Yuck.

Oh, so the new WW plan. No idea but read a review on Roni's site and it looks pretty simple. Basic stuff, right?

Well, can I do it? In the immortal words of Bob the builder..."yes, I can!" or "uhh, I think so..."

(Those w/young kids will know what that means).

I have the funk...AGAIN!

Tell me, what it is about me that makes me get sick? I wash my hands (almost obsessively). I clean a lot. I avoid sick people. I take vitamins. Yes, I have 2 toddlers (OMG! They are both toddlers) and I suppose that they are my little germ carriers. But geez! Can't a girl catch a break? Seriously, I was in bed at 7pm last night. Dh got to take charge of the kids and make their lunches and try and clean up. Well, he at least got the first 2 done.
I feel like crap. My head is going to explode. I have a low grade fever. My bones ache. Can a girl get any more whiny?
Oh, I asked so the answer is yes. Sadly. But I am working on stopping that.

I am still working out...even with the crud. It makes me feel yucky but at least I am moving some. In the long run I will feel better about it.

I am working on managing to maintain right now. Just until I get over this funk (not the cold) but this mood, attitude whatever I am in. I just feel like it doesn't matter and that it will never come off. I get jealous at those skinny people who eat a ton, and don't work out and never seem to gain. Don't tell me that it will catch up to them either...I know better. I have seen their parents and 30 years later they still are the same.
I am hungry all the time. I want the chocolate and the carbs.


I hate being this way. What is it that makes me feel the need to always go to food. Besides liking the way it taste.

Okay, enough. So now you all know my goal. I am not giving up, just taking a short break until I can feel good enough to do this again. Please still be my friend. :-(

Good news, bad news...

Good news...I am up to 16 minutes of consecutive running, well, jogging. But it is not to shabby if I do say so.
Bad news...I am up 8...Yep, 8 lbs. Ugggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg!!!!!! A big cyber scream for you all.

Part of it is because of TOM. I had a mishap with my pills and had to start all over and it is one of the old kind with horrible cramps and all. Oh well. But the rest is my eating habits. I do really well until about 8 pm and then I can't stop eating. What is that all about?

The good news is that I exercised thru it all.

Got to go. More about the bad habits later.
