Good Morning and Happy Friday!

2012March 005

Piper is feeling much better.  I’m so glad to see her improving and getting her energy back each day because we are going out tonight and I hate leaving my animals when they don’t feel well. Sad smile

Yesterday was spent doing laundry and being sore and tired.  I am more sore today, of course, but yesterday I felt tired and a little irritated and nauseous.   Which means, I made No Bake Cookies and ate way too many of them.

Geez.  I need help, Friends.  I am on the food train to HELL!!  We are eating out way too much.  I am snacky and just want to eat SUGAR!!

Yesterday, I did not want to do cardio but I dragged myself downstairs and onto the elliptical, with my Nook and played Scrabble for an hour!  Sure I got sweaty and I burned more calories than if I had done nothing, but if I’m able to play Scrabble while doing cardio, clearly I’m not working hard enough!

I know what I need to do, but pleeeeeease leave a comment and tell me what to do anyway! I need to hear it.


  • Elliptical, steady state



Meal #1: Gluten free toast with egg whites and Canadian bacon

Meal #3: Smokehouse BBQ: Salad with turkey (which I dipped in ranch dressing as I ate)


Meal #4: No Bake Cookies

Meal #5: Chinese food (Kung Bao Chicken with Broccoli).2012March 008

Yikes!  See what I’m doing to myself!

I need a pep talk.

I need to get my head out of the cloud of sugar and clean up my diet!

I also need to quit eating food I know my body doesn’t like (egg yolks, dairy, gluten!)  I ate all of those things yesterday and my stomach was very upset with me!  Eek!

Today is a new day, right? Right.


  1. Happy Friday! One pep talk coming up...
    Today is a new day, and you are the boss of what you put in your body! You deserve to fuel your body with the healthiest foods possible. And think about the rush you feel after killing a super hard work out! You have come so far, and changed your life in so many wonderful ways! You CAN do this!! Now go!! I believe in YOU!

    1. Thank you, thank you!! Just what I needed to hear!

  2. absolutely! today is a new day!

    You can do it : )

    1. Thank you!! Sometimes that is the best mantra: Today is a new day!

  3. Your husband is awesome! What helps me push through workouts is a new playlist on my iPod. I say load it up and go'!
