Thanks for joining me

Posted on: June 22, 2012

I let a select group of friends know about this blog.  Mostly because I feel like if I know no one is reading it, than it really doesn’t matter what I write.  But, if people are reading it, especially people I know, than it does matter, so thanks for being here!

We had a church pool party tonight, and there is one thing that I’m definitely looking forward to once I reach a more comfortable weight.  Not wearing a dress in the pool!!!!  UG!  I really hate wearing that stupid thing, it gets all drippy and soggy at the bottom no matter how much you try to dry off, and it drenches your towel.  I just don’t feel comfortable enough in my skin to not wear it either, so I’ll suffer through it for a few more seasons.

The sleep thing almost got me today.  I wanted to go to bed at 4pm, but I still had so much to do in my day that I couldn’t even think about it.  Then with the addition of the pool party tonight, I’m about as close to the walking dead as someone can be without actually being the walking dead.

But, while I was going through my day near zombieism I took my first trip to Health Foods Unlimited.  I had never been in a health food store before, and I have to say I was more than a little overwhelmed.  I felt completely out of place, and wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to make my way to where I needed to be.  I did however, and got a new peanut butterish thingy to try out in a Green Monster Smoothie.

Something interesting to share, that I hadn’t ever thought or known about was a tip from a friend.  She mentioned my daily calorie goal of 1200 might be too low for me since I’m not severely overweight.  She said that if I ate such low calories now that after I met my weight goal I would have to keep them low to maintain my weight, and going over them will make me gain it all right back.  I hadn’t ever heard it explained like that and it made a lot of sense.  I just figured that losing 2lbs a week was better than 1 since I have, I think, a significant amount that I would like to shed.  But, since I’ve gestated 3 humans for nearly 40 weeks each, I can take 60 lbs one week at a time…right?!  So, I’ve changed my goal on MFP to 1lb/week.  And, by the way, my name there is bowlofcherries18.

All in all a good day.  I did Week 1/ Day 2 of the Couch 2 5K program this morning, and I didn’t curse as much as the first day 🙂  I also noticed that I was walking a little faster and straighter today while I was doing errands.  It could have been because I wasn’t dragging minion bodies behind me, but I’d like to think it’s my body reacting to the work it’s being put though.

Good for you Tiff! I just read your whole blog and am impressed with your dedication to doing this. YOU CAN DO IT!!! I have been on this boat more often than I care to admit, much like you,but it is do-able! I just added you to MFP as well. I am still learning how to use the app as I have several that I use (can’t decide which I like better at this point).

Let's show them what a bunch of 5th - 8th graders can do!!!! #wgipittsburgh #colorguard #fairyguardmother #miamisburg #ohio #itsallinthestateofthemind 9 years ago this timid critter got on the bus for kindergarten, almost 9 months ago we made (practically forced) her go to flag camp, and today her color guard was ON FIRE. This group of determined 5th - 8th graders beat NINE High School teams.
