The wheels are turning...

I'm getting back in my routine of working out and making the right choices with my meals. And it feels good. I don't feel so bloated and I'm pretty sure there might be a good number on scale for Monday's weigh in. i've worked out every day since Sunday and they haven't been the easiest workouts. I'm still going to work out tonight and tomorrow.

Tomorrow night I'm hitting up two places a cookout and a house party. I don't think I'll do too bad with the food as long as I stay away from the desserts, it's the damn drinks! I can get. it. in. when I'm drinking. I can do without the sweet fruity drinks, but if there is some Crown Royal or Hennesy, it's a wrap, lol. My saving grace is that I am the driver to both places and my homegirl doesn't know how to drive my car (stick shift), so I can't get slizzard. I just don't need to take in all those empty calories. My sister says it's better to eat your calories, than drink them. That is the truth!

Happy Friday peeps!!! Remember no hospitals, no jails!!! :)

Sometimes I may lose the battle, but I will win the war!

What's up  blogville!! Long time no see! It's been over a week and I have been doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Maybe a lot of this and a lot of that. I won't like I did a big back slide last week, well maybe it started towards the end of the week before last, but it ended this past Sunday. In my defense I was sick last week from a very long hangover and then I just didn't bounce back into eating right. I finally did get back to working out last Friday and when I looked in the mirror I could see the lbs I had packed back on. Disgusted, but not discouraged. So I'm mostly back on track and still look to be smaller when I go to Dominican Republic in T - 5.5 weeks. Wish me luck!

Freaky Friday!

Hey Blogville! I know most of you are going to be enjoying the 3 day weekend and I am jealous!!! I work tomorrow and Monday, so there goes my weekend. Fortunately I get a different pay rate on weekends and it's time and a half on holidays, so at least I'm getting paid!! :)

This day started off on the wrong foot. Honestly this whole week hasn't been the best. I'm drained spiritually, mentally and physically. My old friend doubt has been creeping up behind me and whispering "This is too much," "You can't lose all this weight," "Just eat it, it doesn't matter." It's just a whisper, I know I can quiet it, I guess I'm just tired...So this morning started off with me jumping on the scale, for whatever reason, and being 302 lbs. GASP! Not surprising, I had another late night and found myself eating a sandwich at 1 am at Waffle House. Not a good look. I think I'm realizing that late nights are my downfall when I don't have snacks readily available. So this weekend I will search for car friendly snacks. Suggestions appreciated. :) After that blow, I open the door to let the dog out there is a huge cockroach just laying there. As soon as the door opens, it starts running towards the door. I'm kicking at damn thing and it keeps running back towards the door. I try to close the door fast and I slam it on 2 fingers! OUCH!!! I did manage to kill the damn thing, but with 2 bloody swollen fingers as casualties. Work was work. Nothing eventful there.

I'm not going to make this a woe is me post, so I will end on a high note. :) Despite my feelings and funky morning I did eat right and worked out. So that makes 5 days this week! :) I am also treating myself to Transformers IMAX. I'm packing my water and Kashi bar and I'm ready. Woo hoo! Can't get too wild, I have to work in the morning! ;)
