2021 day #1 on WW

Good Morning 

long time no blog! Well how is life in Daily Thoughts land you may be thinking? ahhh meh 😐

2021 has not been this big turn we had hoped for but we are making the turn so hopefully all the bad is behind us. I can't help but remember the success I had in 2010 blogging my food, and since I have had success and struggle. So I thought yesterday give it another whirl. I am hitting the scale at a all time 10 year high this morning of 183!! Yeah I have had quite a few stress food binges. So shame and dissapointment cannot keep me out of the "get healthy" game any longer let's finish the jibber jabber and recap yesterday alright already! 🤣

I tried this Nature's own buttermilk bread and really like it
Found this on a WW youtube or Instagram ... can't remember but it's a staple now 
the forever WW staple I see on EVERY WW social media 
chicken, rice and broccoli with Franks wing sauce 
ONE cookie
another staple round here... funny with all these so called "staples" you would think 
I wouldn't have regained so much of my weight back.... hummmm 
Carb d light SF fat free frozen yogurt 
chemical 💩storm that is yummo 🤷
we have meal train going now so this was my daughter home made chicken soup 
is homemade one or two words? hummm 🤔
a few crackers for the soup 
and a surprise knock on the door 
a few work peeps sent this to the house... they are so sweet 
I have been home for the last 5 weeks 
hopefully I will be back 4/5
and the hubster wanted popcorn 
I had a few points left so I measured it out 
all in all a good day 
I also got in a 2.5 mile walk 
lets see if I can have a two-fer 
a WW two-fer 
ya'll know for sure-e-oo 
if'n I post here tomorrow morning

2020 recap

 Good morning

who am I fooling? I am thinking this is like the last decade recap 

I am now 61, this alone is crazy! and sitting at 178. When I started this back in 2010 I was 199... I have been as low as 138 on this blog so 178 is not HORRIBLE 

2020 was rough... covid and I am a grocery store manager. I got covid just a few weeks ago, a VERY mild case for this I am very thankful. 

so maybe I can blog here for a bit this year? yeah 🤷

things that have changed: 

  • I don't work out any more... ah covid and I have a small rotor cuff tear 
  • I am not into shakes or bars any more ... I want to eat my food 
  • I don't want to join a group, challenge or support group ... yeah over all that 
  • I am very much into art... mixed media .. I am sure I will mention this a lot in 2021 posts 
  • I just want to make peace with my body and stop eating so much sugar 
simple? yah? 

So I dusted off yee old food tracker 
I will get on the scale for a start weight and maybe take pictures... maybe not.. not sure 
but I missed the personal accountability of my blog 

so here we go

Morning thoughts

 thinking this morning 

I have spent the better part of this last year... searching, grumbling, feeling less than, paying out money, trying this, that and the other thang a ma bob .... to find myself in the same spot 

moral of this story: Make peace with yo self Girl! 

go slow 

track your food, move your body in some way, drink water and trust the process 

quick fixes may give you quick results that go by the way side just as quick and throwing money at it is just plain ole silly ... save the money and buy art supplies 🤣

2020 so far

 Has been rough

nothing new, right? 

got on the scale this morning 170 straight up

Due to covid and a jacked up shoulder the gym out of the picture 

looked for a Facebook group for accountability 


so here I am... let's see where this goes, shall we?

Real talk maybe for once...

I am struggling a tad bit lately
I for the most part try and keep this blog "light and polite"
can I just vent here for a moment?
  • NO I do not know when we will get yeast back in stock
  • ahhh YES it is ordered
  • NO I do not know when it will come in
  • No you cannot return something, ahhh PANDEMIC mean anything to you? and the fact that the virus can live on a surface for XYZ amount of time (code for I am not a scientist and have no clue)
  • YES the return policy is posted LIKE EVERYWHERE, every checkstand, at front door and at exit door 
  • Can we talk a moment here about what EXACTLY price gouging is? ... or more what it is NOT.... if your favorite one ply toilet tissue is sold out that is on the regular $4 and you are still having to pay $4 but now is out of stock... and now all I have is the Lamborghini brand that y'all never ever bought because it WAS $12 and is STILL the same price $12 but you NEVER wanted to spend the $12 and it is STILL $12 ..... this is NOT price gouging 
  • when you think you can call in sick and then are SHOCKED that you cannot return to work without a note from your doctor .... ahhh really? again y'all do realize we have the COVID19 flu pandemic going on in the world right? 
  • When you post on your social media that your life is PERFECT, you are sweet, chipper, inspiring, always perfectly made up, never slouchy, never have a fight with your husband, never EVER mention the pandemic, being locked down, never have any frustrations .... ah yeah are you even a REAL person or some kind or cyborg? Like maybe you are the female sweet as sugar Terminator?  (and if are in my life and I talk to you and you think I am talking about you... no!!) 
  • what is and is not staying home, like we have a STAY home order.... posting going to the beach, the river, etc etc etc .... while my poor cooped up family is going BONKERS from the isolation and y'all are out WITHOUT masks, with zero evidence of there being a stay at home ordinance.... yeah you are pissing me off!!! I do not feel necessary to have to apologize for these feelings.... have you freaking READ that you can contract this and spread it without symptoms so would you PLEASE do like the rest of us are doing and FOLLOW direction? 

sorry this post is not all roses and perfectly polite "light and polite, offend no one" sort of usual post 

and yes I do get the whole... think before you speak thing 
and yes I do also get the "spread love not hate" thing 
and yes I AM a GOOD person 

but that's the thing I AM A person with feelings, emotions and when you post EVERY bit of your life on social media.... yeah I am a bit judge-y ... how can I not be?

maybe too real of a post for me? 

real talk...
am I sorry?

non quarantine life

This is a weight loss blog true
but it is also a life blog
so lets get the whole weight loss stuff outta the way
down 25 pounds since 1/1/2020
15 more to go

and in these crazy times I am actually not focusing on the food and the weight is coming off

So if you have ever read this blog before you know I am a grocery store manager

It's hard working during the COVID19 crisis
I am scared, nervous, frustrated, and down right ANGRY most of the time

let me explain

scared: ah duh... then add to this... why do you have to go to the grocery store EVERY SINGLE DAY????? or why do you coming to the grocery store with all 5 of your kids? (if they aren't your kids more shame on you!!!)

nervous: when did I wash my hands last? oh man I just touched that... time to go wash my hands again. Looking at EVERY person and thinking of the numbers... have you been in contact with any one of the 35 confirmed cases in the city I work in? .....

frustrated: work has NEVER been through any of this type of situation. Literally one minute to the next the direction changes... it is hard to keep up and I am drowning trying to

and lets add to it... the friggin toilet paper... like what is this about? like seriously? This virus does NOT make you poop... so why oh why are y'all still running to buy the toilet paper? I DO NOT GET THIS!!!!

down right angry! this is an easy one!!!
this is a REAL pandemic ... not put on this planet by a president YOU don't like
this is a REAL stay at home order ... so FRIGGIN STAY HOME!!!!
this is REAL like keep your distance... I am constantly saying "ahhh 6 feet away! You're in my bubble"
this is scary, be patient with frightened people, they are SCARED!!!

and lastly it seems like most of my day is squashing rumors and keeping people calm

I am JUST an essential worker that is oh so not thrilled about going to work daily

then I read of someone struggling and perhaps losing their business
I am working,
so many aren't working...  and I then immediately feel ungrateful
then I feel ashamed of myself
then I go to work and go through the fear, nervous, frustrated and angry phase

can I get a refund on 2020?

Post 17 of 2020

yep still here 
yep still on the journey 
I have kept this journey off my Facebook and Instagram 
kinda using the shut up and just do it approach
work to do! 
start 178 on 1/1/2020
had a blip and went to 179
this morning 161.6
which is down 17.4 from the high 2020 weight 
22.6 to go 
139 is goal weight 
so this is 43.5% of the way 
almost half way 
next goal 159... only 2.6 until I get there 
woot woot 
what is different this time? 
I feel less structured
less stressed 
I haven't been counting or tracking 
just common sense 
yesterday was: 
      → egg whites and oat meal 
      → shake 
      → snack of Wasa toast and a light Laughing cow 
      → dinner of the meal prep I ordered from the gym 
and I worked out yesterday 
water I have SUCKED at 
been drinking a lot of diet soda 
yeah I know, I know 
not good 
as I sit here drinking a caffeine free Diet Coke 
Listening to A LOT of Joyce Meyer on Spotify
well, day off actually it's vacation time for me 
off to my art table guys and gals
