I had my lemon water first thing and then made myself a breakfast sandwich. I stayed true to my word yesterday and did another workout before I went to bed! I am feeling great. The only thing that has had me down is that I have had a stupid heat rash on my face again. I have had it for a while now, like a month! It isn't very noticeable but I can feel it and my Mom noticed it today when she was sitting next to me. Oh well! Crap happens! I hope it goes away soon. I hope it's just a heat rash! What else could it be?
I still have my whole water jug to down but I will finish it before the day is over. I am on my 3rd cup of green tea and missed lunch. I will be having a salad for dinner. I did some running around earlier and got more lettuce to tide me over until we do our major grocery shopping at the end of this week. I need to get more lemons and green tea. I have a couple boxes of green tea but it tastes like dirt! I can tolerate it but it's not good lol Sometimes those off brands can be a hit or a miss.
It has been sinking in that these may be some of the last blogs I will write. I plan to keep posting after I get to my 100 pound goal but I don't plan for it to be as frequent. I am still deciding if I want to do a blog once a week or once a month. I don't know! It has been such a huge part of my life over this past year that I don't think I will be able to stop. I would miss it. This blog might turn into a lifestyle blog once I get to my ultimate goal weight of 170. I can't just shut the door and walk away. PLUS I know you all will miss stopping over for a visit ;-) Who knows, I may stick with it or it might fizzle out when I have nothing new to say. Time will tell!
I still have yet to work out today but I will. I would like to get 2 workouts in like I did yesterday but we will see. If not I will try and make myself do an hour. I was going to go for a walk with a friend but once I got outside it was so windy out that I said screw it. My hair was blowing all over the place and it was ticking me off, ha-ha. I have been crabby - I don't know if it's from going on a better diet than I have been on but man I am moody! I was ready to run everyone over today when I went to town. I had some serious road rage going on ha-ha... I know it can't be (you know what) because that's all over and done with; unless there is such a thing as post PMS, ha.
Favorite quotes from October 2012:
"I have been feeling pretty good. I am really happy with my mobility. I never thought I had a problem but now seeing how easy it is to do the simplest tasks like hooking my bra or being able to scratch that itch on my back that I never could have reached before is awesome! I am still getting adjusted to this new body that is forming. I don’t recognize my face. I have never felt this way before and I kind of have an empty nest feeling if that makes any sense. I’m not saying that I miss being 338 pounds but I am still having a bit of trouble dealing with some insecurities."
"Crazy on how these features are coming out that I never knew I had!" -Entry #151, October.16.2012
"As I have been losing weight; a little piece of my will power to stay away from bad foods goes with it. The thought that runs across my mind every time I cheat now is "I can't gain 73 pounds back by just eating one fast food meal." - Deep down I know it's not ok. To many this might not even be a problem but in my case the reason I got as big as I did was by my fast food addiction."
"I Marilyn Ziebell solemnly swear to shop healthy tomorrow. I vow to keep my will power strong and keep on; keeping on."

"I am hoping after I work out tonight in the basement that it will be the igniter for my consistency in my work outs. I have to push myself and my limits. I know it will lift up my spirits because that fire that was inside me before has been flickering and I need to pour some gasoline (sweat) on it and make it burn!!!!!!!!!"
