Sunday screw up

Well, I had a cheat meal last night and boy it was yummy! I went 700 calories over but it’s only one day and only one meal. That doesn’t deter me from working on this plan. I can definitely come back from that this week. I also didn’t go to the gym although I did get 30 minutes of exercise in somehow. I had 3 minutes left to make my exercise goal last night so I decided to walk around upstairs to finish it and hit all of my goals for the day. I was walking and bumped my left arm on a door handle. It hurt but I didn’t think much of it until I went back in my room and happened to check it.

Yep, I did that. Damn thin skin! So I wrapped it up using a gauze pad and an ace bandage around it and of course when I took it off this morning the gauze pad pulled off and I bled a bit more. I’m fine, it just sucks to look at and I’m sure I’ll have to answer questions from everybody.

Today I have to take Cranky to see her doctor. That’s it. I will be at the gym later. I was going to do it this morning but I woke up at 7 to my last alarm and don’t feel like showering twice (once before and once after) when I take her at 11.

I am tired today too. I blame the time change. I will get used to it by the time we change again in November. Even the dog is still asleep. I wish I was.

Motivational Monday coming later. Y’all have a great day!

Great end to the week

Well crap. My son is sick again. 100.3 temperature last night. We are going to his doctor today. Thank God they are open on a Sunday!

So I went to the gym yesterday again like I said I would. I was not excited that I barely burned 200 calories on the elliptical in 30 minutes. I was on level 6 too.I guess I am in better shape than I feel like! Then 20 minutes on the stationary bike. I was planning on doing 30 minutes on each but my back started to hurt so I quit for the day. I don’t want to be hurt all the time. I plan to go back today too. I may just run a bit on the treadmill or do the bike. In order to not be stuck at the same weight next week, I am going to try my best to be on point all week. Not sure yet what I am going to do for exercise but I definitely want to go!I am out of cooked food from the week (we didn’t eat the chicken and the meatloaf muffins were too delicious to pass up all week). My Mom went out and got Popeye’s chicken for dinner so that was a great treat. One of the reasons I appreciate my stomach surgery is that I can’t eat much so one chicken thigh and I’m done. 280 calories for dinner? Yes please! I don’t know what to make this week. I’ve asked my mom and my son and they both say they don’t know either. 🙄

Calories were on point too.

So I looked at where I started at in November of 2017 and I’m so excited to have come so far! I know that I will continue to do my new health/life plan and will have my weight where I want it by the time this year is over.

I watched Emily Owens MD on Netflix yesterday. It was a cute show. I wonder what I will watch next!

I talked to my sick child this evening about our vacation this year. I think I want to take him to New York this summer. I haven’t been since I was 14 and obviously he’s never been. His friends in his school band are going this week and will be performing at Carnegie Hall. I’m so happy for them! He’s a bit jealous but I think that we will have a better time doing what we want and not on a schedule with 100 other kids.

Today shall be interesting. It’s already 80 degrees here and hot upstairs in our house. I think I am going to have the a/c guys check on why it’s freezing downstairs and hot as fire upstairs when they come next month. Have a wonderful relaxing Sunday.

Saturday is sometimes the best!

Oh wow. I’m so excited! I know I will not have this next week because I was sick this week and not really eating but OMG

Yay!!! I now weigh 205.2! I am 5.3 pounds away from the one hundreds! I can do that in a month! I am so happy this morning!!!

Why I’m up at 5:30am I have no idea. I was up until 12:30am watching Netflix. I didn’t go anywhere near my calorie limit either. Why can’t I be this un-hungry all the time?

I got to go back to the gym yesterday. That made me very happy too! I did the elliptical for 30 minutes and even at a level 6, it didn’t bother me. I guess I’m going to have to up my workouts from now on which is kind of exciting because it means I am getting in so much of a better shape!

I will be going today too. I did go to the dentist and chiropractor yesterday as well. My dentist is awesome as usual. The chiropractor took a bit of time with my back and got a huge knot out that hurt like hell to get rid of. I was wincing in pain when he went over the spot but it’s gone now! So it was a busy day.

I will take my son to his therapy and go to the gym today but that’s about it. No other plans. It’s nice knowing that I don’t have to get up at 6am for a whole week. Yay for Spring Break!

Movie review

A Wrinkle in Time

So it’s fantasy. We all know this from watching the previews. I thought it was okay. Chris Pine does a great job as usual (I’m a fan).

Oprah is Mrs. Which (or witch – I couldn’t tell the difference). The way she was bigger than everybody else just made me think that she told them she would only be in the movie if her part was larger than the others (get it?)

Reese Witherspoon was really ditzy in this movie as Mrs. whatsit. I usually love her acting! I was not happy with the portrayal of her character.

Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who. It wasn’t much of a part. Mostly spoke in quotes when she spoke at all. Seemed a bit pointless other than the gift she gave.

The kids were totes adorbes! My son decided that he was like the cute boy in this film version which I thought was very cute. He looked lost which is probably what he should have looked like. There was a part of the movie where he looks passed out but nobody paid any attention to him. The little kid who was supposed to be 4 and obviously wasn’t was a bit over the top. The girl was perfect for her part.

Zach Galifianakis has a small silly roll but it was a necessity in the movie as it wouldn’t have gone anywhere without that part.

My sons statement: This sucks. Girl is supposed to be ugly with a missing parent. She gets bullied at school. She has a smarter little brother. She gets to be with the most handsome kid from school. She wins over evil. Too cliche. 😂

All and all, NOT worth the $20 spent for both of us at a matinee movie. I should have waited until it came out on Netflix.

Frustrating day

Oh man was yesterday frustrating! The husband of the couple called me but I couldn’t take them anywhere. My son needed his ice cream shake for lunch and boy was that a mess. Plus I totally forgot about the cold liquid diet in the morning!

I made my son biscuits for breakfast that he usually likes. Oops. He ate them. Double oops! We both forgot he wasn’t supposed to eat food again yesterday! After he ate them he told me how difficult it was for him aN that’s when it hit me. Talk about a face palm moment! I remembered at 11:20 that he needed to eat ice cream for lunch. I rush over to the ice cream shop Marble Slab and they didn’t open until 11:30. They made me wait until 11:30 just to tell me that the manager was running late and wouldn’t be there until 12and they can’t ring me up unless he’s there. WTH? So I raced down the street about half a mile to Baskin Robbins. They had opened at 11. I should have gone there instead but my son wanted Marble Slab. So I get his shake and have 3 minutes to drive the 3 miles to his school. I start racing down the street until the turn for the street up to his school. They have the entire street blocked off for construction!!! Shit! So I go to the next light and am racing down that street (I’m sure all the other cars were freaking out at the Toyota weaving through cars going 50 miles per hour in a 30). 11:45 he calls me from the front desk. I tell him this story. His response? “So when will you be here?” OMG child! I’m trying! I tell him 3 minutes and I get there in 2. Then I am trying to open the wrong door (high security at his school which I’m okay with). He is sitting in a chair just waiting. I finally get buzzed in and give him his shake and off he goes back to lunch. Whew!

I get back home and was bored out of my mind so decided to take a walk (must have been left over adrenaline). NOT fast or anything, a 20 minute mile. What I didn’t expect was for my watch to not track the exercise since I usually get my heart rate much higher than the 117 (average of 111) I was getting on this walk. So I was pissed about that.

I took these after my walk to ask my friend that has the watch about it and he tells me that since I’m getting in better shape that the watch wants me to do more so it doesn’t count. How stupid is that??? I’ve been sick all week. I need to start back slow! Well, I guess I shouldn’t have gone at all.


Last night I ate and then was in the bathroom for an hour. Food was going straight through me again. Lots of phlegm draining down the back of my throat too so I’m sure you know how happy I was to be me last night. 🙄 Now i dont know if it was the excitement or the exercise or I’m just not well yet. It sucked though!

Okay, safe to read again.

My mother also wanted me to climb up in the attic and count how many tubs and boxes she has up there so I just waited for my son and had him go up because when ill, a person should not be climbing around an attic! So it’s not too accurate since he didn’t want to go in the back of the attic which is dark. I can’t say I blame him. But at least we did what she asked for the most part!

I told Styled that I can’t take her today. I think she was happy about that. At least I gave her notice! I told her yesterday morning so she could cancel her hair appointment or make other plans. I have to go to the dentist again this morning (recheck from the other day) and then the chiropractor. I may not be going depending on how I feel in an hour when I take my son to school. We shall see!

Next week is spring break here in Houston. We have no plans. All of my sons friends are going out of town and we are broke. That’s fine with him too. I am going to drag him to see A Wrinkle in Time after school today. I don’t know why but I want to see it. It may suck the way it’s been over hyped in the media but I haven’t been to a movie with my son in years now so I want to go with him. He’s not happy. He told me when I told him we are going, “Really mom? A fantasy movie?” I’m like yes! If I can stand to watch your anime, you can go with me! Geez! Tween kids!

I’ve been watching that Skin Tight show on TLC all day. Why am I still watching? No clue. I think really its to see what people’s excess skin looks like and compare to what I have. I need to get back on Netflix, it’s better and happier!

Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy the weekend. I’ll be writing!
