OK, here I am again. What a mess I am in at the moment. Yesterday was a good one to be done with and start again!! I started out with a bar of chocolate before breakfast, three tiny tubs of icecream before lunch, and two big helpings of cauliflower fried rice for dinner. I left out having tea for a couple of days and had no tummy issues at all. I think I overdosed on caffeine ... Anyway, today is a new day and I am starting over, AGAIN! Hit 200 lbs today ... glad in a way that I hadn't gotten around to getting rid of the old clothes that were so big for me ... I am using them again
I started today with 2 fried eggs, 1/2 avo and a cup of tea with heavy cream. Going to keep the tea to one cup a day for the moment - much easier since it is not so cold anymore. Going to try going VLC and high fat and medium protein for the next while. DH is very busy with work so I am able to use his office computer today and probably tomorrow. I am hoping to have my computer running properly in the next few days ... just waiting for some software to arrive in the mail today. I am going to try and track my macros from today too. I would like to get my calories below 1500 just to start out and let my body adjust to VLC over the next few days.
The kids and I are going to pack up some of their toys, partly in preparation for moving but also so that the floor can be found at the end of the day - it is too much otherwise. The fire that was burning close by seems to be mostly under control now - very glad. TOday is supposed to be bad fire weather so hopefully the lines will hold through today. The wind will be picking up again, warm and humidity below 15%!! Not good ... we are all a bit gun shy with regards to the fires after last years drama. We are hoping to hear any day now that we can go ahead and start the process of getting preapproved for buying a home. The last bit of waiting seems to be the hardest. We have found a place that we really like - needs lots of work etc but hopefully is in our price range. But there is no way to move until we can make an offer ... every day I check to see if it is still on the market, and so far it is. I think it is very overpriced at the moment ... might be in our favour for the moment but really praying that the seller would be willing to come down to a more reasonable price. Two places that are very similar just showed up on the market and they also show that it is overpriced. Guess we'll see and I have to just sit tight for the moment ... if we could get this place we'd be able to get our own cows and chickens etc and be able to grow our own food!! Got my fingers all crossed ...
Hopefully todays better eating (helped by the fact that there is nothing left of the crappy food!) will see me feeling better and regaining some of the ground I have lost over the last few weeks!
