Ohhhhh how I miss you all! The days seem to get shorter when you are busy and yesterday proved to be no exception - meetings until 5:30 and then catchup at the office until 8:00. Finally home around 9:00 only to hit the Advil bottle, eat and sleep.......I was beat! Yesterday did not end up too bad on the eating front and I did actually get in a snack at the office before getting home.......that helped me to not devour everything in sight by 9:00!!
I miss blogging and being in the loop but today is proving to be the same as yesterday! I can say that I am prepared today with an apple, yogurt, protein bar (not crazy about spending calories on bars but hey - I gotta do something!) and WATER - I got in all my water yesterday but I have found that guzzling it super fast really doesn't sustain me as well as sipping throughout the day. Needless to say I woke up this morning and spent quite a bit of momentum trying to squeeze my puffy feet into my super cute Barbie shoes!
Yep, today I decided to be Barbie ala Trixie........I was so excited to slip into my size cute capris and red VS bra - does wonders for the boobies! So all I wanted was one day that I could spend strutting my stuff - I'm telling you Trixie was on the verge of killing Barbie if she didn't get out soon..........I slide into the car feeling cute and sassy - until to get a call that says WE NEED YOU AT THE ZOO - WTF - these people can't do anything on their own!! So I will be heading off to the Zoo to review a tree survey - I don't mind but this is really boring stuff and it is going to be a 100 degrees today. Not to mention all the contractors that are working on this project are old and kind of gross.........Trixie is NOT soliciting whistles from them - LMAO!
Really I feel pretty good about the food thing yesterday - partly because I was so busy that it didn't matter how I felt about anything! My only downfall were the peanut butter M&M's that hubby brought home from work - damn him - he knows the rules - NO open candy in the house........especially not peanut butter and chocolate!! So I ate a red, yellow and green one......I know Barbie is a bit obsessed with stuff like that but one thing that I have learned in my trek through weight loss land is that if I take the time to pick out my favorite colors then I eat fewer and have the ability to stop.........bizarre and a bit OCD but we all know that I have a love affair with food. The only thing that I could of while eating those damn M&M's was the fact that I would have to walk the length of a football field to burn EACH ONE off......I read that on someone's blog not that long ago.........dear God - it didn't take me long to put on the breaks so I'm counting that as a victory!!
Once again, I'm apologizing for my absence but I must take my Trixie ass to the Zoo and survey trees - man this job site is right by the elephant exhibit - can you say humid and smelly......couple that with a fucking turtle hard hat and Trixie loses her appeal very quickly!! I heart you all - have a great day and be a Barbie!!!
