Busy days and nights.

I wish I had a million pictures to post for you but I don’t. I am currently in a lull with taking pictures (possibly because I lost my camera and I have resorted to using the camera we found in Mexico in the ocean a few years ago…A story for another time) But I think most of it is because I barely have time to relax in the day especially upload photos to a computer and talk about the things I have done. I guess this blog is just going to have to be a little toned down until I can figure out a balance. I am sure you don’t mind too much, I mean your still reading right? Well I know if I were you I might be wondering what it is that I do that makes me so busy that it is hard to be a savage blogger like the rest that are out in blog land. Here is a look at yesterday.

6:30- Alarm goes off and I actually feel pretty well rested and decide to get up and take a shower.

6:45- I start getting breakfast ready, put the oats in the pot and chop up some peaches to go in the mix.

7:00- Eat Breakfast and start getting my lunch together.

7:25-7:45- Stare at my closet cursing to the cats that I have nothing to wear, Dig around for some clean socks. Decide that I need new shoes and a new wardrobe then finally find something that will work to wear.

7:55- Make sure my Ipod is synced up and grab my lunch so I can head out the door to get in the carpool line.

8-8:15- Wait for carpool, listen to Funny podcast while people in carpool line stare at me because I am laughing out loud. Then I get in a car and act like a normal person.

8:35-8:45- Arrive in SF- Step over bums and pigeons on my way to work, still listening to podcast and thinking about why I decided to give up Coffee for the 356th time.

8:50- Arrive at work ready to be a computer zombie for the next 8.5 hours.

9:00am-5:30PM- Work, drink tea, work some more, eat my healthy lunch that I packed, see funny cat video, work more.

5:30-5:40- Walk to Bus then get on bus and either a. Fall asleep b. freeze to death because the A/C is on for some ungodly reason.

6::15-6:30- Arrive home and get ready to go for a run.

6:30-7:15- Run like the wind listening to Lady Gaga and Britney mouthing the words and looking like a weirdo.

7:25- shower again

7:45- Start making Tempeh Wrap with veggies, soo yummy.

8:00- Eat dinner and watch Mad Men.

9:00- Clean up dinner and put away some laundry, finding other thing to clean throughout the way, then decide my attempt is futile and I will have to clean again this weekend.

10:00 Fall asleep wishing there were more hours in the day.

I guess now that I look at it I could have blogged during Mad Men, but I was knitting and trying to get away from the computer for a little bit. Well that was yesterday and tomorrow marks a new WI day and I just got a new scale yesterday. I am actually looking forward to Weight Watchers this week because I really have tried hard this week. I am also excited to have a scale at home that I can check in the mornings so I get more of an idea of what my “true weight” is. Well I hope that was exciting for you. I have to say it wasn’t that exciting reliving the day like that. I need to be more exciting…

Exciting post coming soon…

Being real for real

Well I had a pretty big slap in the face last night at my Weight Watchers meetings. I guess I just learned again that half-assing the plan is not going to get me to see weight loss results. I really want to lose this weight so I am commuting to focusing on my weight loss and reminding myself daily that I am doing this for myself not just to get into a super hot wedding dress. I can complain about it being tough and hard but the fact is that I just want to have less junk in the trunk! At this point I just want to be back to my Pre-triathon training weight of 163, it doesn’t seem that hard but 20 pounds is 2o pounds no matter what. It is going to take dedication and perseverance and a lot less beer.  Source

Yes I know Boohoo, So I won’t be able to go out and party like I am 21 again, I guess it is just the truth that I really have to account for myself and really focus on that.

For anyone that might actually be reading this….

Would it be interesting/beneficial for me to do a daily eats on my page to help keep me accountable? Especially when going out on the weekend? What about only doing daily eats on the weekend (my trouble time) …

Next week I am going to come back smaller and weighing less damn it! PS I need to run my ass off because I only have 8 weeks until the Vegas Half Marathon( be jealous)

Ravenous Wednesday!

Today I have been more than hungry. I don’t have any pictures since I lost my camera last week but we will have to just pretend.
7AM- Oatmeal with almond butter and a banana
7:30- Coffee with half and half and honey (yumsies!)
10am- Carrots with Hummus
10:30am- 12 almonds
12:00pm- Leftover Lentil, Kale Sausage skillet from last night.

Now that it is almost 2pm I am finally feeling like my stomach is not a bottomless pit.

In other news it is amazingly gorgeous in the SF bay area right now. I went for a walk on my lunch break and was so warm I wished I had shorts on. In celebration of this amazing weather the fiance and I are going to go out for a dinner date night. I am planning to go for a run right after work shower and then we will hit up one of our local spots with outdoor seating. I was the one who suggesting this outing, but right after I did I was almost regretful. Thinking that maybe it would affect my weight loss this week and I should wait until after my Weigh in at Weight Watchers this Thursday. Then I remembered that I can’t live life like that, and I wont deprive myself for things like that. This is why I am going to run right after work and make sensible decisions. I am in control of my health happiness and well being. Let the sunshine in and the running weather continue! Lets be glorious to ourselves today shall we?
