Jan 18 the Grocery Store

Ok so they put the health fruit and veggies in the front of the store that is great…..Works well for me however You look in their ad and there is junk food in it.  You round the corner and instead of healthy choses you find sugar and carbohydrates that you don’t need to put in your pie hole.  The schools have takin the cookie away from the kids and the soda pop. That is a good thing but…..To buy juice for the child to drink costs twice as much.  WTH?  Eat more fresh veggies and leaner cuts of meat….Ok then lean some of the money off of these products.  Send out coupons that will encourage people to eat better instead of buy 2 for a better deal.  Why would the avg 2 person household need to buy two of anything really.  Stock up for a rainy day I suppose but why.  We never know what we are going too eat till its dinner time on most nights.

The good news is I only spent 137 dollars at the grocery and I did by fresh veggies and I did get some vegetarian dishes for my partner in crime but in the grand scheme of things I spent too much and I dint buy really any junk food.  A bag of veggie chips is the worse thing I can remember buying and she may or may not eat those I can’t remember.

I did learn that taking a list helps cut down the crap I use to buy.  Also reminds me to use my coupons!!!!!

I guess what I am trying to say is….Eating healthy should not cost more.  Mrs Obama where are you helping the avg person get healthy.  Its cheaper to buy fattening foods.  At least in the spring and summer I can grow my own veggies…..Thank god!

Have a great day everyone!

Tomorrow I think I am going to try Yoga!

What Else I think today

I got new glasses yesterday.  Normally that be a big deal but I am amazed at the fact that I can actually see better.  I knew I needed readers, I do a lot of computer and close up work but I also had to get a bit of help with my distance.  I can see things don’t get me wrong but, I can now see them clearly :0)  Didn’t even know this was a problem.

Had my first lab today.  Geology my old friend is back again.  This time with more historical things for me to learn.  Keeping finger crossed.  However I am going to need to get a smaller group.  One of the guys is great and the other two are just waiting for someone to give them the answer.  This could be bad.  First lab and only one question confused me.  That is progress being I didn’t get most of the last labs till the end :0)

Why don’t people talk in the elevator?  Is it because they have nothing to say or the fact that they think the other person really doesn’t care what they have to say.  I am a talker.  I talk to who ever when ever really.  Just in general stuff…what floor, have a good day.  I even say good morning to my fellow class mates as they com in the door to class.  I think this is a good thing and I am not going to change that.  Not one bit.  As a matter of fact I may even do it more :0)

I am really enjoying my picture a day assignment!  Mr P and I are making our rounds.  Thinking he may need to go on a vacation with someone…where should he go?

Well I am making tacos for dinner tonight.  Guess I should go get that ready!

I need to make me the change!  Make a difference!

Jan 9 Homework and life

New Semester New Work :0(

It’s really not that bad yet but it has potential to be.  Just gotta stay on my game, I can do this right?  Right!

Last month I went to the eye doctor and found out I need bifocals.  Sign of getting old.  Or as I like to say staring at the computer way too much…lol  I picked them up today and I really can’t believe what a difference that they are making.  I can see the computer now up close instead of having to lean back…who knew.

Still not doing what I want with the water which is my own fault. Just need to do it.  I will get better and I will be stronger for me.  On the 21st I have a Doc appointment to get meds refilled so I went and had my blood drawn for a full panel of things.  I will have those results the first of next week.  Will be interesting to see where all my levels are.

Well Back to the homework I go!

Till next time….

Jan 7 What a week

Here it is Monday and my to do list has been growing and growing.

School starts tomorrow and I went to print my syllabus’s and well lets just say it is going to be a long semester :0(

I am still struggling with water.  You would think tha tthat would ne an easy thing to do…I thougth it would be but it is not.  I need to come up with a better way.  I did put a water bottle in my book bag.  There is a water fountain near both my classes so I figure if I care the bottle I have to fill it up and drink it right.  That is my story and I am sticking to it.  Baby steps.

Last year I started sending random letters to friends and family memebers so that they recieved mail that wasnt a bill.  I did this all year last year and was suprised at how touched people were that they recieved a hand written note.  So I started it again this year.  My first letter went out this morning.

All in all I am doing well.  My photo a day is working well.  It has been fun and I have a few partners in crime that help me out.  You can check out the pictures a day at the top of the screen or you can check out my littel buddys blog at mrpsadventures.wordpress.com.

Ill update you on how the classes are going soon.

Wish me luck on the water and with school!

 

I have not fallen off the wagon

Sorry for the silence fellow bloggers and readers.  I have been knee deep in paper writing and family drama.  That leaves little time for blogging so I will try and catch up.

Family drama—Well seems my partner has decided that we should no longer be together.  This has upped my gym time.  Poor Treadmill has had my name all over it.  Which caused a 3.5 inch drop off my body this week.  I really need to get on the scale.  Maybe Wednesday.

So here are the numbers

-.5 inchs off my neck sense Jan 1

-2 inches off my Chest (that could have stayed LOL)

-1.25 inches off my abs

-6.5 off my hips

-1.5 off my thighs

gained 1 inch on my biceps :0)

So all together I have lost 11.75 inches..that is with a few weeks of up and downs!

Those are inches I will never see again on my body.

Hope you all have a great day!  Ill be back with you after midterms!

 

The Scale

I haven’t been on one going two weeks due to a few things….one I don’t have one at home and two my doc said if the inches are coming off don’t worry so much about the scale.  So I have been putting it off.  Maybe next week I will get on the scale at the gym.  However a friend of mine posted this picture and I wanted to share it with you all.

If I had a scale I would be writing this on it today!

Be true to you !

Till Next Time….

 

31 Days In

After 31 days I am eating better and feeling better health wise but I feel a bit unsettled.  I am still losing inches and I am very thankful for that.  If I didn’t tell you all I am down another inch.   Happy noises go here!  Still only the 4 pounds and I guess I should be thankful for that.  I know what the problem is.  I am not drinking enough water, changing that.  I got a water bottle :0)  If I have it with me I will drink it.  That and I eat to many carbohydrates.  I know this about me.  One change at a time.

I have had a great month.  I am feeling good and looking thinner.  I have a few new projects in the works.  I got my taxes done today.  usually this is a big event that takes place the day before they are due.  So thankful that is over and I got my financial aid paperwork done today as well.  that is the way to end January.  On a positive note!

I am ready for February.  One day at a time.  One step and one breathe……that’s how I am gonna roll!

Till Next Time……

Doing with-out then….

As we all know in our culture we celebrate everything with Food.  Promotion…..food…..graduation….food…Birthday….food.  Well my sister had a Bday this week and we as a family celebrated it yesterday.  Now I have spent 22 days trying to eat better and stay away from sweets for the most part.  I do love my Skinny Cows but why on Gods green earth did I think I could share a cupcake with my partner….BAD IDEA!  Now I want more.  I knew better but I let her talk me into just a bite.  Now I want another.  The good news is there are no more and I don’t have it in the house so I am saved there but I can’t stop thinking about it.

I know that I can have a treat now and then but I now know that cupcakes are more of my weakness then I thought.  Don’t worry my will power is strong but I will have to so not even smell them if they are passed my way…lol

All in all it was a good weekend.  I’ll post measurements later I just needed to vent on the cupcakes!

Till Next Time

Week Three

It has been an interesting three weeks.  First off let me just say that this is going better than I could have expected.  This week was a test.  There ware cookies everywhere at work and I only tried a bite of one. (talk about temptation) I pretty much stayed under calories all week. Most likely not today but I am allowing myself a day of what ever within reason.

But anyway to the point this weeks results are in:

4 pound weight lose in 3 weeks

-9.5 inches off my body this year already as well!

Hope you all are sticking with it!  This is our year!  We can and will do this.

This next time….

Finally 1 Pound

As the title of my blog states I finally lost a pound after 19 days.  I know the doctor said if I am feeling better and things are moving around then it is good…but we (women that is) know that the scale is our nemesis.  I am thankful that the pound is gone and is never allowed to return :0)

It has been a crappy week….truck issues, that caused money issues, that caused not being able to go the gym issues…but I am not letting that stop me.  Lucky for me the gym is already paid for and I can go up there and walk off my frustrations.  Felt good this morning to turn up the tunes and just walk.  So I will call this a win day and make it continue there my work day this afternoon.

I am making this dream a reality….

Till Next Time…..
