oh yeah.. that apt looked better when I left than when I moved in. The carpets look new, I scrubbed the other floors on my hands and knees and shined all the hard wood with my lemon oil concoction from Pintrest that rocks! Not to mention I replaced a couple mini blinds that were weathered (after a while they get brittle) and the bathroom SPARKLED. I did not want her to even try and complain about something. She wrote a check just like that, no waiting 30 days. WHoop.. whoop!! That monkey is off my back, now to get the rest of the tribe of monkey's dealth with.
Looking good on food today for my UD. I had a nice large breakfast because I knew I would be working. I am not real hungry now. In fact, on my UD's I want to see if I can eat 2 meals and "maybe" a snack. That will work great when I start back to school as well.
Weigh in is Sunday. I am really hoping for a loss. I have been working hard with moving and eating right, some validation would be nice.
yep.. its the only thing I am measuring at this time.
Just got back from hiking in the back 40. Holy crap its overgrown (I dont care). However, I think we are blessed with poison ivy, sumac and oak. Heading to walmart for items just in case Lily and I break out. We were back there 20 minutes, crossed the creek to the property line because I thought I heard a chain saw "poaching" on our land. Turns out no. Soaking wet from creek and sweat by the time I got back as well as scratched up. There are like a bagillion trees with big ass thorns and every one reached out to get me. I even had thorns in my hair. Ugh.. nature.
OK.. so because I fell apart thursday night and Friday was a mess. Sitting here this morning I was thinking. My tummy says its hungry, fresh peaches, eggs and bacon sound good forget the darn rumble strips, who cares. My brain says, hop on the scale even though WI is not until tomorrow. Yeah, OK.. what the heck. Ummm down 8 pounds. YUP! So... maintaining my rumble strip, my MD today and fat fast until 4:30pm.
I am well rested even though I could not sleep until midnight, I slept deep until 8am. I think things are looking up. Ignore the ramblings above when I was mentally and physically tired.
I am back on the scale most mornings, currently it is motivating me as a sort of reminder of what I am doing in a way that it has not always done in the past. When the number is down I am like "oh yeah, it is working", when the number is up I redouble my efforts (like this morning) with a "oh no you don't, this works and you know it so get on it girl!" attitude.
I am with Ruth too, gotta take care of yourself on the up days and moderate days to make the down days possible.
