Don't put that in your mouth! You still have 38 pounds to go!

Wow, has it really been 13 days since my last post? Life has been pretty crazy here. Mom relocating, work gearing up, kids in school. Time does fly.

Needless to say, the plan I created on the 5th didn't go quite as scripted. Sure, I fit in more water. I did take a 30-minute walk. But I still had some McDonalds, My portion size, while not the size of a small nation, still could be smaller.

In the past week, however, 2 obstacles have been eliminated--less stress and Jonah in daycare full time. I'm hoping this will free up some time to fit in some sweat.

I met with Ivonne on Tuesday. BTW, I made the 30-pound mark! Yay. Only 38 pounds to go! :)

168 today,

Don't put that in your mouth! You need to save the calories for beer!

Forgive me, Weight Watchers, for I have sinned. It's been 10 days since my last salad. I drink too much beer, don't exercise enough (ok, at all), and still expect the weight to come off...

It appears that I am in a holding pattern—holding at 169. The fault, really, is my own. I do drink too much beer (the stress level around here has been pretty high the last couple of weeks). I don't exercise (unless you count picking up countless toys and doing laundry day and night). And it's been a hell of a lot longer than 10 days since I've had a salad!

This is going to make it increasingly difficult to reach the goal I just set for myself—lose 10 pounds by my birthday. "P-shaw!" you say. How hard can that be? Well, since it's in 10 days, it might be more difficult than just popping an Adipex and hoping for the best. So, to try and keep myself on track, here's a do's and dont's checklist for myself:

Drink 8 glasses of water

Exercise at least 30 minutes

No greasy, fried food

Watch the portion size!

You've probably noticed that "Don't drink beer" is not on the list. Everyone needs a vice. At least I'm not chain-smoking on the corner, waiting for my dealer. ;-P

Yikes, it's the end of the day and I still have 8 glasses of water to drink and 30 minutes of exercise to fit in! Maybe I'll shoot for 9 pounds...
