Update 2/21/2015 : Rebooting

Good Morning,

I'm on my husbands laptop because our computer decided to act up. My hubby is running a startup repair on it right now, I'm not sure whats going on with the thing. I'm just glad I've got this to surf the web with or my morning cup of coffee just wouldn't be the same.

I'm so sick of this weather. Its so cold in Georgia...makes me want to move further south. We had some snow flurries yesterday, I was hoping we would get enough accumulation for me to stay home from work today, HA!. But nope...its all melted now.

I've got some good news! My elliptical is here!!!! Yup, we assembled it last night and I plan on getting my first workout on it after work today. Im excited! Now its time to get back on track with the most difficult part of my weight loss journey, the eating. This whole week has been a step back since I started low carb. And I feel it too, just very tired and run down. My appetite is back along with all those nasty cravings. Now I have to go through the whole process of eliminating carbs from my diet again. I think low-carbers call it rebooting. In four days I should be feeling a lot better.
I did get in two really nice workouts, but that's it. I was off for four days and since the kids were home we ate out a lot, spent what little bit of tax refund we got back and just had a nice relaxing week. I enjoyed it. But now its back to reality today...including my healthier way of eating.

I have to be at work in about an hour so I need to go pack my so food and get ready. Have a good day =)

Hump Day - Update


Its early, around 6am. I have to be at work in about an hour so this won't be long.

So for the last two days I have got in some great workouts! Monday I did 40 mins on the Total Gym and yesterday I did P90X Cardio. This morning I woke up to some nice muscle soreness through my upper body and stomach. For some reason I never really feel anything when it comes to my lower body. So today I plan on doing a lower body workout after work.

Eating has went to crap. Yup, just being honest. My excuses are " I will get serious when my Elliptical gets here". Sounds like a good excuse right? (*eyeroll). I'm kinda back and forth with my carb intake lately. One day im ok, prob under 60 then one day im around 200. Yesterday I prob had close to 300 :-/. Its madness once those little sneaky b@stards get back into your system. Im starting to understand the effect they have on my body/mind.

Well, Im going to do my usual low carb breakfast and lunch today but hubby already said we're going to Golden Corral for supper so I must control myself there. Those of you who are food addicts or just plain over eaters must share my feelings towards buffets. There nightmares if your trying to eat healthy.  I plan on filling up on a nice salad then hitting my favorite food on the bar that just so happens to be low in calories and carbs.... the delicious Bourbon Street Chicken. OMG, so good.

ok, well. Thats all folks. I will bb tomorrow since I'm off.

August check-in

Morning, Are you having a good day? I hope you can say 'yes I am' cause I'm always having a good day when I'm not at work....
