I keep seeing all these challenges when I read through all my favorite blogs and was thinking of doing one...never done one before. I look at it everyday but I'm terrified of screwing up.

And I don't know what to do with

Anyway...I'm scared of the big fail as well...I set goals all the time but sticking to them is a whole different story. I always try my best but most days that just isn't good enough. It's the trying to keep up with 4 kids and stay on goal. I'm leaving something to be desired with that task...

I have noticed that if there's nothing good to eat then I just don't eat...
good - because I used to just eat away...didn't matter what it was...
bad - because a couple days this week I only hit 970 calories. I am making some homemade granola bars today so I can pocket them when leaving...

BUT what do you do when you go to someones house for supper(they know were trying to eat healthy) and their serving boxed burgers(yuck), french fries(uhhggggg) and bags of potato chips(ohhhhhh)?
I had 1 bite of the burger and slipped it to my son...4 fries...and no chips (they are my binge food)...and that was supper that night. We didn't get home till 11:30pm and I wasn't eating that late so I went to bed.

I've always been a speak your mind kind of person(gets me in trouble at least once a week) but I hate to hurt peoples feelings...figure that one

I'm still waiting for my elliptical...every night it's something. Usually soccer...tonight it's soccer and friends over....
Tomorrow were out with friends...will have to watch my alcohol, but I've been pretty good for that lately :)
Maybe Sunday...only 1 game at 3...won't hold my

Started rambling and I forgot what I wanted to put down in the first place....

Oh Yeah Down 1 whole pound...YAY

And I finished 'House Rules' by Jodi Picoult last night...fantastic book...means a lot to me since my son was diagnosed with Asperger's. It's great to see it out their so people can know more about it.

Enough for now so...

Make It A Good One...:)


  1. OH! You should do try the challenge I just posted about! It really is a "choose your own adventure" kind of deal ...
    Congrats on the pound!!!

  2. Are you a perfectionist? I'm asking because your post sounds a lot like some of my thoughts. i'm a perfectionist with a big capital P!

    There are worse things than if you try a challenge and you don't lose the exact amount you set out least you gave it a shot. might learn something new in the process..which would make it less than failing.

    As far as eating at other peoples homes when they're serving less than healthful choices. It would be great if everyone served food that fit into whatever it is that we are doing, but that is not reality. One bad meal is not going to undo everything you're doing. Just practice portion control when that happens. One other idea is to offer to bring something and being a healthy item that you are comfortable eating. If you don't get enough calories...your body will cling to any excess you have.

    Great job on the loss :)

    P.S. I'm not intending to sound harsh, I'm talking to me too :)
