let's see if I can do a 2010 repeat!
I will take some food pictures today and see how this goes
this morning 173.8
2010 repeat needed!
Sunday, July 21, 2019
so the current plan is:
go with the flow kinda food plan is working for me
I am not weighing my food, no measuring, not using an app
I know what to eat
I have been weighing it and measuring it
so I am down 6 pounds
171 → 165
now this may not take me all the way to my "happy weight"
but I am going to go with this as long as it works
there is so much less noise in my head
so let's just stick with this, shall we?
art, walk, church, art
yep that's my day
Friday, July 19, 2019
maybe just maybe I have a bit of
wind in my sails
yeah actually I am
I know shocker!
so I am not going to make a big ole deal
just keep on keeping on
cause y'all know
so there is no "finish"
no real "goal line"
I do this
so I feel better
have clarity and not so much crappola in my head
so let's go for another, shall we?
wake up tomorrow feeling good about yesterdays choices
how about y'all?
sound like a plan?
go out there and be awesome!
Wednesday, July 17, 2019
so yesterday went well
no major plan
I know them all
all the food plans
I could pass a DMV diet plan test
all I have done:
just to name a few
think I have commitment issues
well not into deep thinking this morning
let's keep it and this simple
had a good day yesterday
let's try for two in a row, shall we?
so I am going to go crafty craft
iron my clothes
do my morning thang
Tuesday, July 16, 2019
warning this is a total brain dump...
you will more than likely be bored out of your gord reading this
I am feeling so lost and defeated
I was so in the grove
like IN the grove
food was on point
workouts were on point and then about last October I started going sideways
and now 9 months later I am lost in space
148 → 172
like every day is a new fad
every morning a new resolution
I have a slew of feelings (as you can imagine) behind all this
but I guess more than all the feelings
a big question mark
food was packed yesterday
I had all these grandiose goals
no extreme diets
nothing over the top
got to work
yeah I was a tad worked up, overwhelmed, frustrated, angry
blah blah blah
life in retail
bottom line .....a normal day
and I snapped
boom like mega food fest
so what do I do today?
so upset and blah blah blah
man this sucks
can't seem to find the groove
it's like a freaking mountain ridge I can't seem to scale
can I make it through today?
let's just see
not some crazy "packed and tracked" goal
just be normal
don't go crazy
one day Karla
one day girl

sorry about the caps there
this morning 166.4
down a but and being patient with myself
but found an accountability partner
she gets a scale picture EVERY morning
man oh man makes me think before I eat!
gym days this week
Monday, Thursday and Friday
Tues, Wednesday and Sunday
no activity Saturday
meal prep is coming Thursday
I ordered 8 meals to see how that goes
keeping it mostly lower carb
and I changed my dairy settings to public... if anyone even cares
so today is tracked and packed
off to go get ready for the gym

Friday, May 10, 2019
this is gonna be quick
I woke up late, have to put my food together (it's already all tracked)
and do the treadmill
so down and dirty
love to add this to a meal
calories aren't too bad
I didn't tease them, they got a treat
I love this company
the smartcake's are amazing!
viola! ham ans cheese
may have had two 😉
been adding this to my water, so good
1/4 a rice bowl, unlimited veggies and a veggie burger
and with that peanut sauce

I don't have any fun snappy pictures today
I will take some today
what I do have is a weird all of a sudden SHIFT
Like something in me flipped
I was watching an Instagram gal I follow and she talked about goals
and breaking them down into manageable goals
big goal → final destination
clothing goal/ or could be a pamper myself goal 🤷...this one not sure if she said or I added this
Then she talked about those changing numbers goals → you know 170-160-150-140-130
then she broke it down more into the skinny side of the numbers... like going from 160 to 150 make it a goal to get to 165! so you can be on the "skinny side"
this really for some reason struck me ... this is under her "my story"
so I was thinking yesterday ... I just need to get to the "skinny side" of the 160's ... Karla don't fret about the whole picture just focus on that and I breezed through the day... that and I ate like every 2-3 hours
Love me some old Weight Watchers points plan
so this morning I'll hit the treadmill for 20 minutes, maybe start the ab circuit (was thinking of adding that in a few times a week)
for now at least the gym is a No No
I hit it too hard last week and my shoulder is messed up
so I am laying low..... my body is reminding me of my age (dumb body!!!)
but my mind is like nah ... you're good girl ... GO!!!!
so shoulder pain won! Its just walking for now
so back to the shifted mind topic
I looked back in 2010 and it took me 6 months to get to goal from here!
6 FREAKIN months
so chill out girly girl!
relax and chill
you're gonna be on this journey for a bit
and it's okay
light switch moment
always needing that disclaimer hahahahaah
cause for the most part I am a hot mess
but for TODAY....
food is planned, tracked and soon to be packed
then I will journal, do some art for like an hour
treadmill... then off to work
all my spare time is morning time
after work I am like a zombie and ready for bed
so tootles my peeperoos
see y'all tomorrow

wowsa 2 days in a row!!! shocker 😂
coffee... this is/has been a mess
unsweetened almond milk?
SF coffee mat?
half and half?
so over all this indecision... it's exhausting
so since I am (maybe) back to bloggins meet my new babies!
Milo (girl, left) and Otis (boy, right)
brother and sister born 12/1/18
absolute light of my life 💕
went out to breakfast, egg whites with onions and mushrooms,
tomatoes not hash browns, plain wheat toast
water, water and more water also
lunch some kind of low carb 50 calorie tortilla
velveeta, ham, pickle and rice cake "chips"
blackberries, sweetener and FF cool whip
pudgy face, 15 calorie popsicle
veggies, marg and parm cheese
I am a HUGE journaler, this is my fitness journal...
I will be (I am sure) posting a lot about this
this morning's entry
and the plan for today
yah know... some thoughts here: this may not be the "perfect clean food" and I hesitated to post for fear of imagined? judgement but yah know... phooey... I am doing what works for me... first goal... skinny side of 160's (under 165) long term goal ... 139 by 12/31/19... in looking at 2010 it took me 6-7 months to go from 166 to 139 so.... hunker down Karla and enjoy the ride 😂 ... my shoulder bothers me when I do upper body and last week doing pushups almost got me to go to Kaiser for pain shooting down my arm... so hello again treadmill
not perfect? but perfectly imperfect
love 💗 peace ☮

You know how a blogger disappears and you wonder.... where did they go?
and you wonder.... did they gain their weight back?
well... to end the suspense ... yes I am a fatty now
so let's recap...→ weight watchers on my own... big winner
→ calorie counting ... became obsessed.. got way way thin and couldn't sustain it
→ started the shake system.... did good and lost the weight, but dang I don't want to live like this forever
→ joined weight watchers online, and in store (as in go to the meetings) nah fail on this too many reasons to list
→ tried to replicate taking pictures like beginning... didn't stick to it
→ spend a ZILLION on trainers, coaches and systems... worked for a time... but dang this can break the bank
→ bought other proteins and joined every facebook accountability group in existence to try and replicate above mentioned coaching and nah
→ threw it all to the wind and this has been a big ole stinking turd!
so here I sit this morning
I started this blog at 200 got to as low as 136
up to 181
down to 148
back now at 166
I am not doing so great and a gal mentioned to me the other day, she missed my blogs
so here I am
what's the answer to this weight dilemma?
keto? low carb? WWers? Shake system? a mix of all? nothing? everything?
a rubber room?
I know the goal... this ↓
so let's try an old approach 🤔
pictures of my food ... just TODAY and see how it goes....
at this point I am not making any grand plan and look like an idiot
so let's recap
166.8 ... this is B.A.D
today will be picture day
and let's see where this blog takes me...
maybe it will save me (again)
or maybe it won't (again)
let's see where this goes.....
tootles and see ya tomorrow with some pictures and a new (hopefully) smaller number
