Yesterday vs today

yesterday I didn't want to work out
today I did 
yesterday I did 20 minutes of cardio
today I did 60 minutes
yesterday I did 15 minutes of upper body, and left the gym blaming overcrowding on why I couldn't get in a good workout
today the gym wasn't crowded, but I realized it doesn't matter if it's crowded or not, it is about what I want to do, whether or not I want to be there 
yesterday I ate too much food
today I ate on my plan
yesterday I went to bed really disappointed in myself
today I feel like I am rocking the world! 

why? .... why are some days good... not so good... then in the blink of an eye...CRAP!!!

why? too many episode's of Grey's Anatomy? (my newest obsession) ... feeling too cocky? and I need to take myself down a notch or two? I had a plan yesterday, it just went down the crapper ... why?

why are some days better than others?

Heck if I know, but I am going to get a good night sleep, get up tomorrow and try my dangest to have a kickin day tomorrow

I ate half of this egg white omelet 


oatmeal, chia seeds, flax meal and protein 

I only ate about 10-15

SF vanilla powder in an iced coffee = 90 calories 

chicken, rice and veggies 

chicken and salad 

chicken and broccoli 

Jack's thinking.... hummm thats alot oh chicken ...LOL 

see ya tomorrow, rested and ready to kick some butt

My current rambling crazy Daily thoughts

so my trainer says "eat this and we aren't going to worry about your weight right now (ahhh, excuse me??!!) we need to put on a little muscle

So I cut down a bit on the portion size of his diet, I ate less protein , what I did not cut down on was the portion size of the vegetables!!! I ate a friggin salad yesterday the size of your head!! so what did I expect this morning, yeah a gain

  • To weigh or not to weigh? 
    • you become obsessed, setting yourself up for craziness
    • weight fluctuates a pound up... a pound down 
    • I heard that muscles, when they are recovering hold water to heal
    • It's about how your clothes fit, not the number on the scale.... yeah right!! <----- li="li" nbsp="nbsp" sarcasm="sarcasm">
    • T.O.M. ... although when you are in menopause this is not a concern.... I just need to deal with the hot flashes, and my crying spells, followed by my "I want to rip your head off" spells.... sorry ladies yeah it does get worse!!! 
    • If you eat late at night , this is reflected in the number staring up at you in the morning 
    • When the batteries get old, the scale gets weird 
    • I have this little game when I don't like the number.... 2 outta 3.... I get on, get off, get on, get off until I see a number twice.... then that's the number I go with 
    • When I have had a BAD food day, the evil Karla twin says~~~~ "Go ahead fatty, jump on that scale and rip your heart out" ... and I do.... :::::sigh:::::
    • Why is it that the number on the scale sometimes reflects the fit of my wardrobe but not other times? 
    • Thin arms and legs but a giggly belly.... what the heck? This was NOT supposed to be the end result!!
  • I LOVE Jaime Eason and Tosca Reno, and in my fantasy mind, alter reality we are not so different ~~~~ who ARE you Karla??? delusional girl??

bowl contains 1/4 dry measure... ok, ok... heaping scoop.... some chia seeds and 13 g of almond meal, microwaved with water... add 1/2 scoop vanilla protein a few Splenda's and a HUGE handful of berries... OMG!!! so yummy ~~~~ insert squeeling sound~~~

4 egg whites with a HUGE portion of baked vegetables

this was normal sized!! yeah me!!!  baked vegetables, 3 ounces brown rice, 4 ounces baked turkey loaf and a bit of light Italian dressing

obscenely HUGE bowl of salad with 3-4 ounces of turkey, light Italian dressing

broccoli and 4 ounces chicken, light Italian dressing... I could not have fish again... I don't like fish all that much. I want to like fish, I need to like fish... but I JUST. DO. NOT.  ok maybe I am not JUST like Jaime and Tosca!!! 

and finally 


Thus closes today's post

My son says I have adult ADD

My assistant Manager says I forget everything

My husband pats my head and smiles

My daughter is worried

I have to write things down or I forget, I never used to be this way, but I have spoken to other Store Managers (see how I capitalized that to make myself feel more important) ..... no filter today!!
and they have the same experience

I am always afraid to write too much on this blog, who is reading this? could it affect my career? what are you thinking? who are "you"?

but I read this this morning and thought.... yeah!!! What Suzi said!!!

so I am going to write a bit more on my blog... I ramble, don't make sense at times, my thoughts are spastic and unrelated at times.... I will be doing something and

 ~~~~~ lighting bolt~~~~~

remember what I need to do about this or that (usually work related)

recent thoughts:

  • my trainer wrote me a diet , hummm too many grams of protein, I am following it, but have reduced the serving portions on some of the meals 
  • all my vacations will be done until January... OMG!!! gonna be a LONG few months 
  • I need to start thinking about Christmas shopping ... plan plan plan!!
  • I need to go buy a dress for a work event in October... OMG!! I need to wear some kind of heels for this event, will I look stupid?? wobble when I walk? fall? stumble? humm fake it? 
  • I have fallen in LOVE with Grey's Anatomy!! how is it I am just discovering this? Love me some Netflix
  • My arms and legs are thin, but my dang saggy ass belly is making me nuts!! 
  • Unsweetened Almond milk vs Coconut milk? ahh the battle begins 

see this is why I usually don't write/journal my thoughts.... 

sorry you may want to unfollow me... more of these random rambling posts to follow

so I need to get off my arse and go for a mega walk this morning, it's cool out (monumental for this time of year around here!!) instead of plugging myself into Grey's Anatomy... plenty of time for that later 

see yall tonight :)

Day #1 of vacation :)

these are not in the correct order, I am too impatient for that!!
this morning ready for the gym 

I am  trying a herbal method to fight my menopause, I have been on the Estrotone for about a week now, and already I feel better!! 

this morning food prep... mew.. a lot of work, my daughter loved it, me not so much. Acorn squash on a pan that has coconut oil then dusted with cinnamon, she liked it 

Raspberry protein oatmeal...nummers 

broccoli, carrots, 3 ounces chicken and light Ragu Alfredo 

Egg salad and a quarter of an avocado 

I went to my MIL's for a family afternoon, and these little evil pills were on the coffee table, I did not eat a single one!! 

but I did indulge in Chinese chicken salad, dressing was not diet friendly, but I did pick out all of the noodles 

:::sigh::: so much for the NO Splenda streak 

and tonight I will have protein ice cream, I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought a Cuisinart Ice cream maker  that store is awesome!!! they honored the 20% off coupon even though it was expired, I saved like $14!! awesome!! 

good day today, diet wasn't 100% but you can't be 100% every day!! 

see yall tomorrow 

Ya know

when I don't post, you can be sure I have a reason

yesterdays reason?

Almond butter!! I ate 100% on plan then had 2 rice cakes with almond butter, ya know what though.... I don't even like almond butter!!!

so dumb!!

today is a new day

I am going to focus on getting back to where I was a year ago..... which is about 5 pounds lighter!!!

Car Grief

I got up bright and early, I need to leave the house by 6AM, cooked some baked vegetables; asparagus, onions, zucchini, yellow squash, red bell pepper and carrot. Spray the pan with Pam, drizzle some balsamic vinegar and bake until done.... pure yummo

but the phone rings.... car drama!!! The short version is 6 and a half hours and 3 different tow companies JUST to get it to the dealer to be repaired!! so what is my normal response?

but I stopped after just one rice cracker and 2 T of the almond butter, WIN!! 

overnight protein oats, some Greek yogurt and blueberries 

5 egg whites and baked vegetables 

carrots, broccoli with taco seasoned turkey with some light Ragu 

3 ounces chicken with spaghetti squash and Franks wing sauce 

and some watermelon, a cup of coconut milk (80 calories) for my morning coffee, as well as a tall Starbucks drip with a splash of half and half .... so NO protein ice cream tonight ... boo 

The extra milk in my coffee, and in my Starbucks as well as the protein ice cream adds up!! I have one more half gallon of the coconut milk and then I won't buy it any more. I am switching to unsweetened almond milk 40 calories vs 80-90 calories!!! ... ohh and I did 20 minutes on the treadmill 

YIKES!!! days of old, no going back to that!! eat right and keep active and that 200 pound gal won't be back! 

later guys
