I feel like a bad blogger. I have been shirking my blogging responsibilities! How, you ask? I'm glad you asked! Let me count the ways...
1. I wanted to make this a food blog and take pictures of my food everyday. I haven't done that. Not having a home computer makes this difficult unless I just take the pictures with my phone.
2. Not blogging every day (or even every other day!).
3. Not catching up on all of YOUR blogs (which I love, by the way)!
So see? There you have it! Bad blogger! I'll try to be better, maybe starting next week? Maybe?
But, I've also been in a bad mood. Just a funk. Partly due to family issues that my parents are having at their restaurant. It's seems they get screwed no matter what they do!
Also, I've been in a funk because I just haven't been eating right. I haven't been counting points. I've been snacking on tortilla chips at work all week (thankfully they are gone, yup, I finished them off) :/
Lastly, I've had that rash/bite marks all over my arms and legs. I feel like a leper! I'm not a vain person. I generally don't care what I look like, but I don't want people looking at me like I have some weird contagious disease. Because of this, I haven't gone to the gym. I have been working out outside, running, walking. But I've been wearing pants and big t-shirts. And it's been about 90 degrees! That puts me in a bad mood.
But my bite marks/rash thing is getting better. All the marks are still there, but they are getting lighter. My legs still look the worse. All the bite marks/rash spots have blended together and I have big red blotches instead of smaller spots. This picture was taken on Tuesday evening of my arm and leg. (The first picture is my arm, the second picture is my leg).
So, I have to snap out of the funk. Working out helps me with this! Like I said, I've been running and walking. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday I ran. Wednesday, I walked with a cousin. My half marathon is only 1 week away (from Sunday). I'm thinking a LONG run is in order in the near future. I dislike long runs! :/
This picture is of the 5k I did yesterday with a friend and her friend. I'm on the left. I really don't like this strange picture of me! But it was hot and I was sweaty before we even started!
Here is a picture of the meal my cousin made for me before we went walking on Wednesday! Breaded chicken breast, rice and veggies. Delish! She can cook for me anytime! She thought I was a freak taking a picture of the food! lol
And this picture is just a picture of me that I took a few weeks ago. I think I look like "slim jim"! Whatever that means! lol
My weigh in is tomorrow. I almost don't want to go! It's the 6th week and I should be making lifetime, but I don't know that I will fall in the 2 lb +/- from my goal weight. I fell off this week. Horribly upset about that. I almost want to just ditch.
It's really not like me to let my weight control my feelings about myself! So I'm going to go and grin and bear the outcome! Whatever it says, I can work on it for the future. There is always next week.
I did buy a scale the other day (see...obsessed!). And I weighed my kitties! lol
My one cat is a Snowshoe (cross between a Siamese and American Shorthair). She is short and stocky. I call her fatty! Her real name is Hazel. The second one is a Calico cat. Her name is Isabelle. She's luckier than Hazel because she is taller and the weight stretches out better! lol.
(Isabelle is on the top and Hazel is snoozing on random papers!)
Oh, so I weighed them. Hazel (short/stocky fatty) weighs 11.4 lbs. Isabelle, long and lean (with some fat) weighs 12.4 lbs. And they are on kitty diets! lol
Do you have pets? Do they need to go on "furry friend weight watchers"? :p
