only 2 weeks until Thanksgiving
How do you track?
Do you track?
Weight watcher app?
My fitness pal?
A fit bit?
Nike wrist band?
The electronic apps I think are too generous with fitness
If they were accurate I would be weighing about 120 right now
I look at the fitness and it gives me a false sense of security
But it is fake

I usually don't focus on my work on this blog...
it's about my weight
I am a grocery store manager
and maybe that explains why I am such a foodie
Thanksgiving is just 16 days away
Now in case you just flew in on a space ship.... this is the big season in retail
I am talking HUGE!!!!
You folks want your food...
we have list's and checklists and plans and data and organizing to do and all kinds of whoosie whatsit's to get straightened out and planned and organized... that sometimes
Thanksgiving is kind of anti climactic for me
Just can't help feeling thankful the freaking day is O-V-E-R
boo bad grumpy grouchy Karla
but when you come into my store of course this is what you will see on my face
oh yeah gotta smile..
inside I am thinking.... always thinking
did they order those mashed potatoes?
what about the egg order?
did the pies come in?
oh I have to call about the pop up turkey times...
uh oh... he didn't shave...
her shirt isn't tucked in...
oh oh smile Karla... "hi... are you finding every thing okay?"
uh oh... a conference call...
oops gotta check my email...
oh dang she wants WHAT day off? oh yeah that ain't gonna happen...
smile... "I'll see what I can do"
plus about a zillion more things racing through my mind
a friend posted a link yesterday on my face book
so this holiday season I am going to TRY and slow down
and enjoy the process
I plan for it
now just chill Karla and enjoy the process
what does this post have to do with food and weight and fitness
okay now food
all good on track
fitness... gym yesterday and today also
check check and check
one request people
be nice to people this Holiday season....
you never know what someone is going through
you (insert me ----> Karla)
don't know what some one else is going through
love, peace and Chicken grease

I have been reading a lot of posts this morning
can you spell insomnia?
someone (and I apologize for not tagging your blog... I read A LOT of blog's this morning) mentioned about sugar being an addiction and how they made it through a few days of major sugar cravings and looked at it as abstaining from an addictive substance .... I will try and remember this next time I am FREAKING out at work and reaching for the chocolate covered peanuts
then there was the blogger that posted about having a turn around and losing but not reaching a goal but needing to focus on the journey
we all have similar stories and journeys
reading that you struggle with the same issues I do makes me feel like I am not alone and I am.... dare I say.... NORMAL!!!
so it was nice...
a few of yesterday's food pixs
my creamer, I always do 1/2 unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 SF creamer
of course ... egg whites
Fage, 4 whites, 3 oz turkey broccoli and SF BBQ sauce
and I had tried those new Quest chips... they were good for a snack. Nice to leave the store and go over to the GNC and get a snack... get's me out of my store for a few minutes
on the way home I picked up a child sized SF frozen yogurt
yesterday was just under 1200 calories
and it was nice to wake up
(at the butt crack of the middle of the night ... boo sad face)
and not feel the stiffness in my hands
when I go all crazy with my food (and grains) I have MAJOR hand stiffness
grains be evil for me
so today may be a bit of a struggle
got up way way way way too early but I will struggle through
theme for the day:
gotta love Sandra B!!

so lets get this out there
I am 55 people... yeppers I know you thought I was 25
no okay for sur 35?
ah no??? okay okay 45??
okay now I am discouraged... you all knew I was 55....
any whoosle... I have to think about retirement and I want to be healthy as a friggin horse! so I am a bit food and fitness obsessed... plus it's my thang and I am into it so
so I have become a bit OCD since my kids have moved out... house needs to be uber clean, laundry done.. tidy tidy tidy and I am a bit
(er.... read A LOT!!!) of a counting freak
so it is 18 FULL days until Thanksgiving and I want to enjoy my day with no guilt that I have derailed my diet
18 days girl... duh... didn't you just read .... lol
so here is my plan
18 days full force
only 18 days
can I, you? us? we?
can this be done
I CAN DO IT
YOU CAN DO IT
----> insert Arnold voice
I don't want to be going to the gym the day after Thanksgiving feeling like this!!
So today and tomorrow are ball busting work days for me
3 mini meals
duh per day...
and accountability tomorrow night
lets do this people!!!

been boring around here lately
same ole same ole menu
3 ounces chicken or turkey and veggies
OMG you are so skinny Karla!!!! right???
so I moved the candy from the kitchen to my husbands night stand
did that help??
(that's please drawled out.... derp)
so today it's back to the gym and shakes and egg whites
but the good news is I am still down 10 pounds
153 this morning down from a high of 164.7
When I am feeling comfortable and like I am all that
it's hard to kick myself into gear
it was strange .... yesterday size 10 pants
BUT my belt was back on my size 6 notch
chilling here that's me
and gearing up for the holidays in retail
and I WILL blog more bloggity family
