McFatty Monday – Just call me Jaba

21 Jun

I’m just going to come right out and say it. I completely blew my diet the past 5 days. And I’m not just talking about a few extra chips, I’m talking about consuming more calories than I normally do in an entire day in just one MEAL! Ugh.. let’s see where do I start?

Well there was the bag of Cheeseburger Dortios, 2 Cheese burgers, 2 orders of french fries, chicken nuggets, bbq chicken pizza, brownies, a hot dog, potato salad, 3 beers, 1 glass of wine and some more bbq chicken pizza. All in a 5 day period that I would like to declare as “GorgeFest 2010.” WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?

Needless to say I stepped on the scale this morning out of pure need to self inflict myself with pain. I told myself “154” which is 4lbs above where I was last week and figured that gave me plenty of room to be below that and feel better about my food choices. WRONG. 155.2, I winced when I read that number at 6 am. Despite my 900 calorie burn on a hike on Saturday I still managed to gain 5.2. Just call me Jaba the Hut from now on.

I’m putting a stop to this now though, I can’t keep up this downward spiral any longer. I need to be eating healthy and stop eating this crap. I’ve lost the weight before I can do it again. I’m starting a new exercise routine today and ready to get focused and I’m committed to doing this right!

Dammit I want a grilled cheese sandwich right now.


Is this Real Life? Ok NOW?

15 Jun

Do you ever have one of those days that no matter how hard you try to focus, your brain says “NO WAY”?

Well that would be me today. I’ve done everything but work today. In fact I read all 178 pages of Stephanie Myers short book “The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner” before lunch. Which by the way was very good and a quick easy read. It’s free to read online and I recommend checking it out: http://ld-breetannerbook.libredigital.com/index.html

My mind is everywhere today. With Father’s Day approaching this weekend I can’t help but wonder, will this be the last Father’s Day that my husband will NOT be a father? We are really hoping to have some success this month now that we are officially 1 year and 1 month of trying to have a baby. Each month it seems like someone else is knocked up from just looking at each other and we are left here swimming in Ovulation predictor tests, cycle charting and doctors appointments.

Sigh… there I go edging on the brink of cynicism. Knock that off Midgey.

Anyone else out there had or having trouble trying to have a baby? If your out there I’d love to talk, sometimes I feel so alone in that department.  I do have faith in God that he will bless us with a child when the time is right, but can the “time is right” be right now? Is that to hard to ask?

Day 2 of weight watchers online has been going well. I’m looking forward to my first official McFatty Monday weight in next week. 4 lbs is the goal.. Will I be able to do it? I sure as hell hope so.


Tales of the Scale

14 Jun

Oh Scale how I loath you. I step on you after a weekend of bbq chicken pizza, spinach artichoke chicken pizza, chips, pretzels filled with peanut butter, ice cream, and the list goes on and on. I really self sabotaged this time.

Now up 13 pounds from my original goal weight I am feeling pretty shitty these days in my clothes. I have a friend coming into town in 2 weeks and I really want to look my best. I re signed up for weight watchers online today. I had a lot of success with that program a few years ago and hope this will help me get control of this downward spiral I’ve been experiencing the last few months.

I have decided in order to keep myself accountable I will be letting you all know how I am doing each Monday and weighing in. My goal is to be down a 6 pounds by the 25th. I know that seems crazy since that is 12 days away, but I know I can do it.  A blog that I love to read Heir to Blair does a “McFatty Monday” post every week on her journey with weight loss. I always love reading her posts about it because she is incredibly honest and I appreciate that. So I will be following suite and doing the same. I wont be posting pictures of myself though since I am not revealing my true identity with this blog but I will be telling you my weight and what I’m doing. Wow I just released how incredibly lame I just sounded by saying “true identity” what am I superman? Sorry about that.

Starting Weight: 153

Weight Loss Goal: 140

Total weight to loose: 13

Nutrition Plan: Weight Watchers Online

Exercise: 6 days a week of low impact exercise (dr.’s orders), I will be using a combination of my Leslie Sansone, Slim in 6, and Body Gospel Dvd’s.

Ready, Set go! My McFatty Monday has begun!
