On The Downhill Slide

T minus 6 DAYS

And I will be done with the detox diet! Whoo-hoo! I'm going to try not to go crazy and pack back on ALLL this weight I've lost....

wait...
I've still not lost ANY weight.
Oh yeah... that's right. Diets blow.

Anywho, I'm still behaving myself, still working out, still truckin along believe in the "babe, your body composition is just changing". *sigh* Still nothing on the scales has changed. Like the day after I said I hadn't even lost a tenth of a pound, I lost like 0.6 lbs...buuuuutttttt, last night I gained back 1.2 lbs. Damn you fluctuating weight. Thankfully this morning I was back down 1 lb, but that still means I till gained 0.2. Errr. I need to stop weighing myself.

On a brighter side, I do think I'm shrinking in inches. I feel a little slimmer and my pants all feel a little baggier. And it seems like my face looks slimmer in the mirror. This could all be imaginary and me deluding myself into believing all this sacrifice and hard work is paying off, but just play along, k? J says he sees it too and keeps feeding my delusion so that helps. And luckily, neither J or I owns a measuring tape so there is no way to prove or deny my claims of slimdom to myself. Sweet. So until I take a picture of myself and prove that I without a doubt still own my double chin and mushy belly, I'm going to stick to my delusions.

AND, my first day of detox freedom just so happens to be ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!! Bring on the green beer! Also, as a reward for being SO good, J is taking me to Okie Joe's for supper that night ~ and probably a little Ben & Jerry's. SCORE! Something to look forward to, and definitely worth sacrificing a few more days. Ahhh...smell that? Its a newly refreshed diet optimism.

Happy Hump Day All!

As Seen on Pinterest: Paper Towel Curls

I pinned this and put it under "Must Try" because seriously -- her hair looks SO CUTE and I want my hair to look like this:

And I can TOTALLY do that ya'll. So, I tried it.

Step 1: Start with wet hair. Me post workout shower [disregard the red face -- I look like my blood pressure is that of a 300 lb man in his late 40s really high after a run] with wet hair.


Step 2: Put mousse in hair, tie hair up in paper towel "curlers" rrrrreeeeaaaalllly tight. Sleep uncomfortably on back all night because said paper towel curlers are too tight. Wake up the next morning really excited -- you gonna be FABULOUS dah-ling [or so I thought].
I know I don't look excited but this is at 5:30 in the morning -- this is as excited as it gets.
Step 3: Take "curlers" out of hair and FREAK THE F OUT when you realize the curls are WWW***AAA***YYY too tight...
Ok...um...that worked a little TOO well. Maybe I need to just run my fingers through it. Yeah, I'll run my fingers …

Ramblings of a Panic Attack

I’m having a panic attack. These stupid meds are killing me. I hate them. Stick with it, stick with it, stick with it. I know it’s the meds. I just have to get through this and relax for a couple weeks. I hate this job. It’s not even that bad it’s just HORRIBLY boring. I don’t want to do this every day. I appreciate learning the process and gaining experience but it’s not what I like to do. I don’t even like accounting that much to begin with but there are aspects I like and I know it. The pay is killing me. I need money. I can’t continue to be completely broke before the first week of the month is over. Collections calls ringing all day. I’m applying to jobs like crazy. I’m trying so hard. I’m just going to keep pushing forward. Keep. Pushing. Forward. I hate that I wanted a life with Jason. That I was too blind to realize what he was. That I was ok with him even from the very beginning when I knew better. Why didn’t I want better things for myself? Seeing him makes me want to vomit.…

Jason's Graduation: Part II

Dr. Allen, DC
4/5 of our marriage has been spent working towards this day. To say we are excited would be a great understatement. I can't even put into words how excited/happy/scared/proud/relieved, etc, etc, etc we are. There just are no words. Jason has worked tirelessly towards this goal. Countless hours of studying. Sacrificing time with me and the kids. And all the work he put in advertising and recruiting patients into the clinic. Personal training early mornings and late nights to help makes ends meet.  And I think of all the sacrifice we've made as a family. Living in a townhouse and then a tiny apartment. I've been the primary provider and a mostly single parent during some stages. And a constant cheerleader and standing behind pushing. We've both been pushing uphill for what seems like forever towards this goal. And we've made it. Not to discount his hard work, because he was the one who really accomplished this goal but I like to think we accomplished this …
