 Quick post here to let y'all know that I am kicking tail on some water intake. Using a small cup is working for me better than a large cup. I have been getting in at least 64oz while I'm at work! Yay me!!!!!!!!

  I have been thinking about doing the mud run that's coming up.......changed my mind. It is at the end of September and though I would love to do it, in no way am I physically ready. 5ks are fine but I just looked at the obstacles for it and I know I couldn't finish. But there is rumor of a color run coming up in November in my town.....I am totally in for that!!!!!!

238.4 BABY

 I have been slack on my blogging lately. Mostly because I have been rather disgusted with myself. I have felt like I can't do this, I will never lose this weight, I will never look the way I imagined in the beginning, and I will always be the fat, funny girl. I dont want to be the fat, funny girl anymore, I want to be the skinny, funny girl!!!! With all that being said, I have kicked butt this past week. I went back to a mostly liquid diet and I tried to get in more exercise. As of this morning's weigh in I am back down to 238.4!!!! WOO FREAKIN HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I go to my surgeon on Friday and I'm not sure if I will get more fluid, I highly doubt it because I have not been keeping much down. Mostly that is my own fault because I was eating too fast, or too big of bites and not chewing well enough. The last few days I have really made myself slow down and it is way better. Also, I go Thursday to the neurosurgeon to get the results of the MRI to see if the tumor has grown, so any prayers are greatly appreciated.

Ten Things Thursday....

1. I am disgusted with myself! I gained weight while on vacation, not sure how because it seems like everything I put in my mouth makes me vomit.

2. I decided Monday that I was going back on liquids. Well.....mostly liquids. I am doing protien shakes for breakfast, yogurt for snack around 10am, then another shake for lunch, and something reasonable for supper. Like last night I had less than half a can of 70 calorie Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup, I brought the other half for lunch today.

3. Husband is strugging. I feel terrible for him, he has a MAJOR decision that has to be made and it has been torture for him.

4. B started middle school yesterday. She LOVES it!!!!!

5. Is it too soon to be ready for vacation again? I would love to go to the mountains this fall or winter, just for a weekend!

6. This afternoon I go for a MRI to check the brain tumor. I will admit I am a nervous wreck. I'm not having any symptoms right now, but for some reason I feel as though it has grown.

7. After the said MRI, I am going to visit 9 Rounds. Just to check it out and see what it's all about. I have friends that are having great results with it and I have to do something.

8. One of my biggest motivators is this blog, I love reading what everyone else is doing. Keep it coming.

9. I am really missing my Best Friend of many years. We seem to be so busy these days and never have time to get together. So, this Saturday while Husband is at Bristol me and her are doing a 5k. Not an organized 5K, we're just doing it on our own.

10. I have a good friend, we'll call her Amy.....OK.... her name is really Amy, she also had lapband surgery, and is one of the reasons I decided to have it. She did AMAZING!!!! She is such an encouragement to me. So, I just want to tell her thank you, and I couldn't do this without her!!!!!

 I am far behind on my blogs. I was on vacation last week. I am trying to catch up, but my job is demanding my attention.

 I am back up to 243lbs on the scale this morning. I am so unhappy about that. I have decided to go back to a mostly liquid diet. Also I am going to look into 9 Rounds. Have any of you heard of this???? Is it good????

 B starts middle school tomorrow. I believe I am more nervous than she is.

 Short job doesn't understand that I have tons of personal stuff they could be paying me for!

 A few of you have asked for a picture of my here you go.

 4 days until I m beach bound with my love, my daughter, and some really good friends. I do not love the beach, but I am so ready for a break!!!!!

 Hopefully I will be able to eat decently while on vacation. I would love to lose 3 more pounds before I go back to the doctor on August 31st.

One more week....

 I have one more week before I am on vacation. I hope I can push through! I really am not a beach person, but Husband and B love it and we are going with some friends from church so I'm sure we'll have a blast.

 I was still at 238lbs this morning. I am pleased with that. I haven't lost any but I also haven't gained any. I have had a hard time eating lately. I have gotten stuck a lot. I think I threw up almost everything that went in my mouth this weekend. So today I am taking it really slow and easy. I had yogurt for breakfast and it went well. I'll try peanut butter and banana for lunch.....we'll see.

 I have done something to my neck. I can't turn my head to the right. I have had an issue with this for a while now. Periodically it will bother me. Doctor said it is stress induced, and this past week at work I was stressed to the max, so I don't know if it is that or all the throwing up and maybe I pulled it. Hopefully it will work itself out by the weekend.

 B starts middle school the week after we come back from the beach. I am excited and nervous for her. We went shopping this weekend and got all sorts of "cool" middle school clothes. When we get back from the beach she is getting hilites. Yeah, she's all grown up. *tear*

Chic Fil A and Donuts

 Since yesterday was Chic Fil A appreciation day Husband texted me on my way to work and asked me to get him and some guys he works with Chic Fil A biscuits. While I was there I also got myself some chicken minis (bad I know). Today my boss texted me and asked if I wanted Chic Fil A, I said "sure, chicken minis would be awesome." 2 days in a row, what the heck is wrong with me???? So I ate the chicken minis. About 10:30am one of the guys that works for our mechanic shows up, like he does every Friday with 2 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. I knew he was coming because they send them every week, 2 dozen every single Friday. We have 7 people that work in this building but they still send 2 whole freakin dozen. I have fought it for the past 3 Fridays and not eaten a single donut, but today after 2 days of chicken minis, I ate a freakin donut. AGAIN, WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH ME??? Has all of my willpower gone out the window. I am so mad at myself. I don't know what to do.....I have done so well this week. I brought tuna and crackers for lunch, but now I don't want to eat anything for the rest of the day!

 Ok, moving on from my pity party........

 Husband's cousin is in the hospital with kidney failure because of heat exhaustion and dehydration. He went to the ER last evening at 6pm, and nobody called to tell us. You see, he is really like a brother or a son to Husband and I. He is not very close with the rest of the family (and I completely understand why), we are the closest ones with him from that family. We are his daughter's God Parents. Why in the world would his wife not have called us???? It really makes me angry. Anyway, I talked to him this morning, when I found out he was in the hospital, and he said they are keeping him 24-48 hours to pump fluid through him and get his kidneys back operating like they're supposed to.

 It's FRIDAY!!!!!! Thank goodness! I don't think I can take one more day of work this week.

Ten Things Thursday 8-2-12

1. I have GAINED 2 pounds this week. Yep, you read that right, I gained 2 FREAKIN pounds. I am so not happy about that. I have eaten way better and exercised way more, what gives?

2. It is so hot in my office. It is really ridiculoous. The rich as heck boss man can't spare a few bucks to turn the air down a few degrees.

3. I have a very good friend at work that is going through a tough break up and my heart is breaking for her. She loved this man and his children and I can tell it is ripping her heart out. Bless her.

4. B takes piano lessons and I am convinced that her piano teacher is a drunk. And she's all kinds of crazy. B really likes her so I haven't tried to find a new teacher, but man she's crazy!!!! Like a goofy crazy.

5. My entire office is taking the rich as heck boss man out to City Range for his birthday tonight. I am not looking forward to it. We all went $50 in and got him some gift cards to places he likes to eat and a couples massage for him and his girlfriend. I made him a mini bottle bouquet and we put it all together. Somehow my $50 turned into $85.

6. This week has been an awful week for me. I have been so ill, I'm sure I have gotten on Husband's nerves.

7. Husband bought me an elliptical. I hate that thing, I can't go for more thatn 3-4 minutes at a time on it. So Husband got tired of it just sitting in the living room and moved it to the laundry room. I decided today that I want it back in the living room. You see, when I was going 3-4 minutes on it was before I was really exercising and hadn't lost that much weight. I am going to give it another go.

8. We have 2 broke down race cars. Husband is so aggravated about them. It is very expensive to race one car, much less two. He has worked so dilegently and still isn't racing. Bless him.

9. I am struggling to get 10 things.

10. I am ready for the weekend!!!!! We have a birthday party on Saturday and at some point this weekend I will take B shopping for back to school stuff.
