Stretched to the MAX!

Wow - so here I am at work, crack of dawn so I can fit in a post, my food log and my work! Things have been more than busy hence why I haven't been around as much. I have been lurking when I can but free time has been few and far between. I have however been hitting the gym and logging my food - I swear Swizzle has made me a total geek with this spreadsheet guys have to try it! It is amazing how even when we don't realize it we get in calories - scary sometimes!

I was listening to the radio this morning and heard something that I found interesting. A woman was making excuses for her inability to lose weight and said that she didn't have time to exercise yet in the same sentence she confessed to taking naps during the day. The host of the show (who was a woman and is admittedly lazy) made the point that we always find time to do what we want to do. Why is that so profound to me.........I guess because "I don't have time" was always my classic excuse. I'm not saying that life doesn't get in the way sometimes but I do know that there are a lot of choices that I make which cause life to get in the way. One of my favorite quotes is:

There are basically 4 kinds of people: cop-outs, hold-outs, drop-outs and ALL-OUTS. --Robert Schuller
I think we have to make the decision on who or what kind of person we want to be and sometimes our mental and physical decisions are different - know what I mean??

On to other important news - my costume party is this Saturday and I am super stoked about hookering it up.......God I'm bad!! The breast cancer walk is also this Saturday and I'm really excited. I'm a little worried that I'm going to cry the whole way through........I have a picture of my grandmother who was a breast cancer survivor but passed away from a different kind of cancer - I also need a picture of my sister in law and I have a list of names going that I will carry with me. Thanks again Matty for inspiring me to do this.

Not much else new happening - no babies on the horizon........don't get me started on this subject......I get more frustrated as time goes by! My weight still seems to be steady even though the last two weeks I have eaten 8,000 calories less than what my body uses - that should be the equivalent of 4 pounds but why the hell would I start counting now??? I swear my body is an everchanging science experiment!!

Okay guess I should run - it only took me 3 hours to finish typing this out......again, things are really busy!! Hope all is well and I promise to post pics of my costume - BTW - My Ken is going as an inmate - I told him he was going to be my "bitch"!! Oddly enough - he doesn't seem to have the slightest issue with this!! LMAO

{{{HUGS}}} Just 'cause I missed you. I think I even cursed at that Lady Lustice cartoon a couple of time, LOL. YES, real pictures of you and Ken. Take care,

Always great motivation - time for me to be an ALL-OUT person! I find myself doing the nap thing because of my weird schedule but I am noticing that it doesn't even help my sleepiness. Solution = work out instead. Thanks for giving me that boost.

Who wouldn't want to be your bitch for a night, you rock ;) Can't wait to see your costumes!

Hey - glad to see you again! Have a blast at the party and keep up the good work!

Amanda said...

I've been wondering about you! Glad things are going well...even though they are busy! We miss you around here!

Swizzlepop said...

There you are! Can't wait to see pictures from the party!

About that spreadsheet. Be sure to double check the formulas. I realized that it started to get screwy towards the bottom.

Hope things slow down so that you get to come around and post more often! :)

Its good to hear from you again! I knew you were around so I figured it was just to hectic to post (I'm in the same boat). I am so excited for you, you have so much to look forward to this weekend! You are going to do so well on the walk and don't be worried, there will be so much happiness along the way you will not have time to cry (okay, it's going to be emotional, just remember I'll be there in spirit every step of the way)! It is so awesome you are taking this journey, you will never forget it!

I hope you have fun hookering it up, I'm sure you will looking Fab and The inmate will be the luckiest inmate ever!

Isn't it funny how we can eat 8,000 calories less than we should, and not lose a pound, yet we eat like a tad more than we should and we gain 2 pounds? I hate this game sometimes!

I always look forward to your posts and I'm glad to see a new one. What you said is so true, we make excuses and find time for the things we want to do in our lives. No more taking the easy way out!
