Feed Me!!

I’m not going to lie to you. I’m hungry. REALLY hungry. Maybe doing IP isn’t going to work so much for me. I knew it wasn’t going to be a diet I could stick to forever. But, I’m starving right now. It’s great that I’ve lost 7.2 pounds in 9 days, but seriously? I could eat my own hand right now.

I’m thinking I need some Weight Watchers back in my life. And the lack of exercise doesn’t help me much either.

A couple of months ago after we moved into the house, I canceled my gym membership. I was doing alright with my workouts at home and stuff, but I miss the gym. And sometimes a girl just doesn’t want to use the treadmill. The Arc Trainer would be nice. So, I’m thinking of rejoining. They are having a special right now. And maybe actually take another spin class.

The husband is leaving for New Orleans on Monday. I decided not to go with him this time around. With the house and all, I just didn’t want to go away for a week yet. My Mom is here (she’s downstairs in the in-law apartment) but she isn’t all that mobile these days and I worry about her, too. So, I’m going to stay home while he goes. He’ll be gone for almost 6 days. It’s a bummer, but it’s his job. I’ll miss him like crazy though. I had hoped to be pregnant, but I’m not dwelling on that right now.

I’m looking forward to the weekend. No big plans, just cleaning up the house and running a few errands. I’d like to get some pumpkins for the front porch to go with my Mums.

How was your Thursday?


The diet

I’m still pretty bummed out about “Breaking Bad” being over. You can’t watch a show for 5 years and just END it. You can’t give it the best Emmy drama in 2013 and just think I’m going to forget about it.

Thank GOD for Netflix.

3s13mhThis dog cracks me up. Seriously.

So, the diet I’m doing right now is Ideal Protein. I watched one of my coworkers drop 40 pounds in 3 months while doing it. And right now my work bff is currently on it and she has lost 20 pounds in 5 weeks. I’m doing it on my own (I bought some food online) because I refuse to pay $400 for the start up. I didn’t think I would be able to handle it. I’ve modified it a bit so that I’m not ready to eat my arm off. And I’m not eating 900 calories a day. That’s a bit ridiculous.

I forgot to mention I had my yearly review last week. It went well and I got a raise. Also a plus. Work is good. Busy, but good.
