Peace out Cub Scout

I am kind of in a before mode 
I have made a promise to myself though 
if I buy it... gotta eat it 
so if I buy a protein bar... figure it out 
freezer is full of WWers taco soup ... figure it out 

but I will 
hubster can eat the sweets ... I have like 14 cans of tuna and 6 cans of re fried beans 
figure it out 
I will only buy food though 
nothing more processed 
but gotta work though what I have 

well this is NOT exactly what I had in mind 
tee hee 
this is more of me daily 
before... ready for work 
after... home and after a 12 hour day 

so food is packed 
meal 1 - Isopure shake with fruit from freezer and coconut almond milk and some chia seeds 
meal 2 - Trader Joe's 80 calorie muffin and 4 oz of cottage cheese 
meal 3 - broccoli cauliflower soup from (freezer) 
meal 4 - turkey pattie with onions and peppers and shirataki noddles (freezer) 
maybe a SF carb-delite yogurt of the way home??? 

lets see how long I can eat out of my cupboards and freezer's 

I am kind of a food hoarder... when I grocery shop I still think I have 2 kids 
that are going to eat eat eat 
but it's just me and da hubster now 
have a great day 
peace out cub scout

Just chatting

why is it that some days there is NO hope?
other days you don't/can't understand where that attitude comes from it feels easy

it's weird

No matter the path you choose
Weight Watchers
Whole 30
Trainer's plan

no matter which choice ...

some days there is NO HOPE!!

the VERY next day it is easy

No pictures, no gifs

good morning
just little ole me
no pictures of food
no silly gif's
nuttin honey... just me
chit chatting

So I have been following a lot of Weight Watcher folks on Instagram
why do they all seem to be in the U.K.?

any whoosle

so many before and after pictures

even when I was at my smallest I didn't feel 100% comfortable as an "after"
I never seemed to be done.... problems much Karla?

Once I got into a groove back in 2010 the losing part was easy.
The maintaining part was the hard stuff

so I have to make a plan
to keep it off this time
so I am not back here blogging when I am 60 about having to lose 25 pounds again

I am not going to freak out, but I am aware this is an issue

I slept HORRIBLE last night
I know poor sleep means increased stress ... or more like inability to deal with stress as well
stress hormone Cortisol
so I listened to my body this morning (after a whooping 4 hours sleep last night)

I had coffee, banana, egg whites and a bagel thin

and didn't try and tough it out until 9AM

would have set me up for failure

meals are packed and prepped
going to be another long work day today
I work 10-8 ... plus the hour commute
Tomorrow is my day off and a much needed rest day

I question the Fitbit app and how it sync's with the Weight Watcher app
Shows I have earned 40 fitness points this week
and I still have 2 more days in my "week"
I weigh in Friday and all numbers start over

I know I am a busy gal but dang!

Sorry no pictures or fun silly gif's
too tired this morning

Have a wonderful day

remembering the rules

I went to an actual meeting!!! and stayed after to talk to the leader...
yeah me! 

I started on Friday... so yesterday I sooooo didn't want to weigh 
Went to breakfast with the hubster 
ate this amazing egg white omelet with enchilada sauce 

had to snag a half slice of his toast 
yes It was counted! 

but at the meeting she made me weigh.... 
so I asked her to black out my weight 
because I knew it would derail me 
so my Friday morning garage weigh in 
is my starting weight 
I liked the leader 
she reminded me that when I was losing in 2010 
I had all these little rules I followed 

like I had to drink a liter of water on the way to work 

I couldn't have just protein and carbs for lunch 
I had to have a vegetable 

sometimes it's the little things that I stumble on 

but if it helped to remind me of things that used to work 
it was a win experience for me!!! 
I look forward to going next Sunday 

 NNN blockade 
No Night Nibbles 

food all packed for a long asp work day 
I work 10-8
Orange Theory at 6:45
I will be tired tonight 
but good tired

back to the future

I have been reading my blog posts from 2010 
when I was in the losing mode 
and one thing I notice is the absence of protein shakes

I ate food 
counted points, tracked calories
weighed measured 
a lot of fruit and vegetables  
so in an effort to get back into my
 6's and out of my 10's 

I am going 

so real food, less processed foods 
cause I feel better when I eat REAL food 

I have been doing good 
so what happened with the Whole 30 you may ask? 
Too restrictive
I want a frigging yummy once in a while 
cream in my coffee 
yeah maybe I am addicted 

to sugar, wheat and grains 
but I lost the weight before 
I can do it again 
I have 142 days 
20 weeks and 2 days 
4 months and 20 days 
left in my work location 
and I want to feel comfortable in my skin with 
all the craziness that will come with that transition

so I read old posts 
see what worked 
mimic the old days 
so hold on 

here we go 

back to the future
