Day 2: 3/30/09

I actually got up at 6:30 to do the dvd. Knowing that my exercise is behind me really makes my day easier.

Food for Monday, 3/30

Breakfast: Strawberry Protein Shake
Lunch: Cafeteria salad (no garbozo beans, the bastards)
Snack: Kashi Go Lean Crunch bar and banana.
Dinner: Pasta w/ Pesto & salad.
After dinner snack: Bowl of strawberries

Drinks: Water and G2. (eta: Coffee, too. How could I forget coffee?)

Exercise for Monday, 3/30

Level 1 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Jillian, I don't know whether to hate you or love you.

By the way, I'm only planning on doing this until April 15th (the day we fly out). After that, I'll probably do a weekly thing. Maybe. I might just be burnt out on blogging by then.

Not much could make me post two posts on this blog in one day. I just got off the phone w/ my mom and I am livid.

To make a long story as short as possible:

I have a 23 y/o cousin that is a complete screw-up. Whatever is wrong w/ her is someone else's fault. She doesn't take responsibility for anything. She's been married and divorced. She has an almost 3 yr old daughter.

She finally went into rehab a little over a month ago. She lived in Boise, but took the baby and went to her mom's house in Socal. The rehab was inpatient, so the baby was w/ my aunt the whole 30 days. While all this was going on, it was decided that my aunt would rent out the house she bought in Boise (for my cousin) and bring my cousin and her baby home.

My whole family (which includes my mom and my brother) have done so much for this girl, that it is unbelievable. The last time she pulled this shit, I washed my hands of her. I wouldn't help her if she paid me. My mom won't help her either, but she will help my aunt (her sister).

For the last week or so, my mom and my brother have been cleaning out and packing her house up. Did I mention she had a dog? That was ALONE in the house the whole time she's been in Socal? The neighbor would come over to feed it, etc. So my mom and my brother took it to the Humane Society and were told that it had a chip and they had to call the owner. Well, the owner is in rehab, but you can go ahead and try.

My cousin found out that it was my brother that dropped the dog off and wants to press charges against him. W. T. F. I am so fucking pissed.

The moral of this story is that no one fucks w/ my brother but me. And I'm going to call her and tell her that.

Day 1: 3/29/09

I've decided to try to do a short entry every day about what I've eaten and any exercise that I've done that day. I'm hoping it will not only get me motivated, but also force me to take some accountability for my inability to do what needs to be done. What needs to be done?

I need to wear a bridesmaid dress in 19 days. Now I don't think that I'm going to be losing a ton of weight in 19 days, but I'm determined to do whatever I can. That means no food binging on the weekend. No beer. No wine. No dessert.

The sad thing is that I've known about this wedding for months. I've told myself that I'll do it, then something will happen. I'll do something that hurts my back (this is the only legit excuse I have), I'm too busy b/c of soccer, I'm too tired, or I'm just plain lazy.

Food for Sunday, 3/29.

Breakfast: 1 bowl Kashi Go Lean cereal (w/ 1% milk which made it hard to eat since I prefer fat free).
Lunch: 1 piece of broccoli cheddar quiche from Costco.
Snack: Kashi Go Lean Crunch bar.
Dinner: Fettuccine Alfredo and Salad.
To drink: About a gallon of effing water and a G2 Gatorade.
Snack: Garbozo beans w/ cajun seasoning.

Exercise for Sunday, 3/29.

Level 1 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. It would be nice if she looked a little winded.

Blonde moment 7,164

We have lived in this house for THREE years. That's 3. Yet this morning when I walked out of the bathroom to get my sweats out of the closet, I turned too early and walked into the wall.

Dieting sucks

Does dieting really work?

I have to say that I don't think it does. For me, dieting translates to eating nothing that I actually want to eat. No cookies, chips, or pizza. No beer or wine.

I generally eat pretty healthy. I've been good during my grocery store outings, not buying things that look soooo good on the shelf. I've been exercising regularly. Everything was going good and I was right on target for losing some weight before my mother-in-law's wedding. Then it happened.

PMS and the same time.

Food doesn't really taste as good when I'm sick, nor do I actually feel that hungry. Except for popsicles, cookies, maybe some chips and cake. That stuff tastes wonderful during that time of the month whether I'm sick or not. Which is a shame. I could have lost five pounds while I was sick if PMS didn't accompany bronchitis.

Now I have three and a half weeks to slim down. I'm not saying how much weight I have to lose, because it makes me feel like crap knowing how hard it is to lose it.

Today I am going to Spinning. I'll bring my inhaler so I don't cough on you, Jack.
