Morning Mumbling


Its 6:18 on a Saturday Morning. I've got about 20 mins to type this before the mad frenzy of getting ready for work starts.

sigh, just one more day and I'm off Monday. I'm so ready.

So my eating the past two days has been atrocious to say the least. (yes, I had to use auto correct on that word ha) I've been in the " I don't give a crap" mind set and I know it will catch up to me soon. I can already feel my stomach poking out.

Why am I making this weight loss journey so difficult? It's not rocket science here, and I've done it before? I counted calories and exercised and lost weight. It was a slow and painful progress but there was progress happening! I honestly don't eat that bad, its the convenience food that is becoming an hassle right now oh and not to mention the sugar/sweets...I've got to lay off them. The convenience food is the easy grab-and-go food. What it boils down too is that I've become lazy and I don't want to make any effort. ( hence the diet pills)

And speaking of, I'm so thankful to be off those dang diet pills because they were making my life miserable.  

ok, it's time to get ready and pack my lunch. Have a great Weekend!!

A Quickie


Of course I over slept this morning so I don't have a lot of time to chat. But a quick update is in order.

As of yesterday I am totally Phentermine free! Yep, thats more diet pills for this girl. I'm feeling good to, no real side effects so far. I'm glad I decided to wean myself off them.

Wednesday I did Slim in Six phase one workout: Start It Up. Yesterday I could hardly walk I was so sore. I'm still very sore this morning...which is a good thing, means its working. So I'm going to do it 2/3 days a week along with my elliptical 3 days a week. I'm estimating calories at this point, guess I will have to eventually go back to writing down everything I eat in order for the scale to move. I'm still deciding on that...

ok, time to get ready for work. Jurassic World tonight!! I'm so excited!!

I'm Ok, Good Grief!!


I was a happy camper when I stepped on the scale this morning!  I lost  nearly 4 and a half pounds of water weight!! I drank 90 ounces of water yesterday and did a 30 minute elliptical workout to help flush it all out. I feel so much better this morning.  Now to start losing again.

As of yesterday I am now down to a 1/2 pill of phentermine. Just 6 more days until its safely gone. I may just take a 1/4 pill for 2 days..IDK.  I can sometimes feel my body adjusting to it, I honestly can't wait to get this crap out of my system. I don't regret taking it, after all I did lose 15 pounds but I couldn't imagine taking it for a long period of time. I've read that some people have been on it for a year or more...thats scary.

So yeah, do you ever get asked "Are you ok?" 3 people asked me that yesterday, it gets old. Here's the thing. I'm a quiet person, period. It doesn't mean I'm mad, sad, thinking about something or frustrated. I'm just quiet. I will generally be quiet while I work. Whats wrong with that? Geesh. My answer is " Yeah, im fine...just working. Are you ok? " they go away after that, LOL.

sigh, I miss the days in the Bakery when I worked by myself. It was so quiet...I miss quiet so much.

Here are some pics of our beach trip. It was so pretty, I wish we could live on the beach.

Day #5 Update 6/8/15


I hate to admit this but I'm so glad to be home. I wish I had taken today off as well to recuperate after our little get away, im pooped!

This weekend was nice but it was at the wrong time, I was on my monthly AND I'm trying to wean myself off phentermine so I had zero patience to say the least. But I think I did pretty good with biting my tongue =)The beach was beautiful!! The hotel was nice and the drive to and from was good. I've got tons of pictures that I want to share but right now i have to get ready for work. Maybe after work.

So you know I just HAD to step on the scale this morning and wasn't surprised, I'm up 8 pounds from my lowest weight..ACK!! Lets see how much water I can flush out of my system these next few days. I'm honestly ok with it. I know I have the rest of my life to get healthy and get this weight off. I'm not backing down or letting any negative thoughts redirect my focus...I'm ready to change my life!!

ok, just a quick update. I have to get ready for work now. Yesterday started a new week in my workout schedule and I intend on getting something done after work today. Even if its a walk!

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....
