<-- I found this picture I was looking for a while back to go along with my post about my love for chips and dip. This was me when I was little all set up with my bowl of chips and bowl of dip. I don’t blame my Mom what so ever. I know she feels partly responsible for me being in this situation. No one knew that I was headed into the obese direction at this age. I just loved my chips and dip. This may sound completely crazy but I can honestly say I do not regret one single potato chip I have ever eaten. They have gotten me through some tough times. Speaking of chips; I HATED that Ruffles had to come out with their new ultimate ridges chips JUST when I started dieting!!! DROOL!
I want to apologize for the people that check in during the day waiting for my new post just to find out I don’t do it until midnight. I feel bad but some days I’m on top of it and others I like to wait until the end of the day so I have more to write about.
I just got done working out in the basement not too long ago. I had a great work-out! I wasn’t going to do it tonight but I just knew I would feel so much better about myself in the morning if I just dragged myself down there and did it anyways. I have been slacking lately. Even thought it may not seem like it; I can feel my heart isn’t as into it as it used to be. This does scare me at times but it also gives me some motivation to prove myself wrong. I am not sure if I am feeling this way because my new lifestyle isn’t so new anymore and it has become routine? I’m not complaining because I have dreamed about being able to stick to something like this for so long it almost seems surreal now that I’m actually in the groove of it.
I only got 3 hours of sleep last night. I hate not getting at least 7 hours! They say that getting enough sleep is a BIG part of the weight-loss process but I’m sure 1 rough night won’t make me gain 10 pounds. I was sleeping well until my dog Heidi got me up at 5AM howling at the thunder from the storm that was rolling in. I got her calmed down and then I couldn’t fall back asleep! I laid there for a couple hours until I got up and decided to start my day. Surprisingly today was a good day and I wasn’t as tired as I thought I was going to be.
After I came downstairs this morning I made myself eggs and toast right away for breakfast. For lunch and dinner I had a Lean Cuisine. I drank a cup of coffee with my breakfast this morning which was so nice! I like not having something for a while because then it becomes a real treat when I do have it! I don’t use sugar or creamer either so it’s pretty much guilt free!
I have to say THANK YOU all so, so, so, so much for the loving support! I am flabbergasted at the amount of people who care and are excited for me. One of my very good friends said once I get to my 75 pound mark she is going to make me this awesome owl rug I saw pictures of when I was at her house last! She is amazing with crocheting and knitting. She seriously blows my mind with her skill! I am so excited to get to my 75 pound mark now and it is a great motivator. I love her for thinking of doing something like that for me!
ALSO; I have been keeping up with that teeth whitening method where you take a q-tip and rub peroxide on your teeth and it works! I am very happy with my results. The only thing is that when I posted about this method before I said to rub it on your teeth and have it sit for 10 seconds. I was wrong! It is 30 seconds; not 10!
Picture below: Me during my work-out tonight; KICKING BUTT!!!!! Lol
