  • That's a good idea. I didn't plan on eating bbq sauce - then when we ordered the appetizer I just forgot I shouldn't eat that. dumb. I'm still figuring it all out. I guess it's all trial and error at this point.

    I fasted from dinner at 8 pm yesterday until 1:30 pm today. Then I ate some nuts (no peanuts) while I was making some eggs and bacon - and now I have a terrible stomach ache!! I think its just air ........... it'll "pass" It's making it hard to eat my eggs and bacon though .................... oh dear --- its not just air............pain in the gut!! ugh! Time out.................

    We'll I can't claim to be carrying around 5 pounds of fecal matter in my colon as an excuse for weight gain! All CLEAN! those colon cleanse scams will never make any money off me!

    I called the Merrell store - they don't warranty against shrinkage due to washing......... so my brand new Merrells now belong to my neighbor who has slightly smaller feet than me. She's happy........ I went to Ross this morning and bought some more shoes. But unfortunately couldn't find and nice Merrells. Makes me sad............. those shoes fit so nice before I washed them.

    I'm not getting much of my to-do list done ........... In fact so far I haven't got any of it done. Maybe I'm just a sloth at heart.

    • No sure what that gastric flush was all about.............. I'm feeling fine now. And........... I'm drinking KOMBUCHA! I decided it might be good for the gut - and hopefully taste good too. The first drink I thought................. gee...... this is just like Mikes Hard Cranberry with a slight twang to it! I could take this on the boat and be drinking something HEALTHY but feel like I'm having something NAUGHTY! I'm going to be drinking more of this........... and might just experiment with making it myself. Its only 30 calories for 8 ounces - and its full of beneficial probiotics. The down side is the cost - $2.99 for 16 ounces. But if I think about it - that's about what Mikes costs. Maybe its less at Trader Joes?

      Hubby says he's taking me out for dinner for my birthday. But I think I might just go to Safeway and get a couple thick Filet Mignon steaks and bake some potatoes. Or go to Costco and buy a whole tenderloin for 1/2 the cost per pound. That sounds better than risking eating something questionable at a restaurant and being sick the next day.

      I bought a new booby squisher to wear while I'm jumping - and a new pair of work out pants. I needed a second pair really bad!!! and I bought 3 pair of shoes.............. I feel shameful - but the cost of the pants, bra and 3 shoes was only $111 total. And I really did need them.

      After spending some time in the clothing stores I am getting REALLY anxious to get this weight off cuz there is some really cute clothes that I want to buy!!! REALLY CUTE!

      It feels good to be in control again. Every time I think about eating something "wrong" I think about the pain and misery its going to cause.......... nope - NOT worth it

      • I suggest going slow with the Kombucha. It will cause a "gastric flush" for me if I drink too much at one time. I don't think I have ever ingested 8oz at one time. I usually take a few sips, maybe 2oz, with a meal.

        • Yeah, the bottles of kombucha are usually at least 2 servings, technically. You can spread it out over a few days. Marcadav (I can't figure out how to break that up or pronounce it) has a good approach, IMO. I love the ginger flavors .

                • oh............. you will surely catch up - and probably surpass me! but I am feeling pretty comfortable with the rope now. The only thing that stops me is the fatigue! At 50 I'm about spent!!!

                    • I am - when I miss I stop for a few minutes - or longer. I'll sit on the patio and give it a rest for a while then try again. I'm getting pretty comfortable with it.

                      Its 1:15 and I'm sitting in a dark dining room - nekid - catching up on Words with Friends and Marks Daily Apple journals. Its freakin HOT in our bedroom. This is the first night it hasn't cooled down up there and I'm just roasting! I came down to get a cold glass of water and sat down at the computer............... here I sit - eating nuts. Best try to get back to bed.

                      Skipped the potato and just had tuna for dinner so food today:

                      3 eggs, 2 bacon
                      nuts
                      tuna
                      nuts

                      lots of water!!!

                      I'm not trying to eat just a little - when it hot - I just have no appetite and I don't eat much.

                          • Spam it be................ the only rain I see is coming from my sprinkler!

                            Weight today 184. I'm doing the teeter-totter thing and I hate it. Although total normal - so many factors determine what weight is doing from day to day. I had a lot of salty nuts yesterday.

                            Going to work............. will write more later. Or while at work maybe - depends on how much work I have to do.

                            • It's a perfect 72 degrees in Iowa right now. Absolutely unheard of for July. Our local meteorologist say we've likely seen the hottest weather we're going to see and it'll be a nice mild summer from here on out... last year we breached the hundred degree mark many days in a row, for a couple or three weeks... this year, the hottest we've gotten is 98. I'll take it. I love this balmy weather - perfect for running long and fast. Check out my journal to hear about today's run. It was amazing.
