Day 601: Look who’s up!

Posted in Re Inventing Me by pishposh71 on July 29, 2011

I am madly impressed with myself today. I have no reason to be up yet as I have no kids till later but yet I still got up early. Not my usual take on a morning off that’s for sure.

Not much new to report since I last wrote.

Last night I got to see a friend who relocated to a new school. Still lives in the same spot but her going back to work and her kids switching schools makes our time together a lot less.

It was great to see her, and even greater to listne to her perception on me.  Its been about 2 months since we have seen eachother but she said she could see noticable changes to my figure and even more to my attitude.  Who would have thought my life could turn around so much?



Day 600: Summer Days

Posted in Re Inventing Me by pishposh71 on July 28, 2011

I love summer. I love the sun on my skin and the sweat on my brow. I love that my white legs turn a brownish shade (well for me anyway) and I love the sound of water splashing around. Simply put I love every element of summertime.

I think that weight loss clearly connects to mood too because now that summer is really here in full swing the scale appears to be working in my favor.  The last 2 days it has blessed me with a 191 lbs when getting up and a  193.2 lb area at bedtime. More reasons to smile in my books.

Life remains fast paced with the kids. I am always on the go to the pond to feed the ducks, the creek to look for frogs and fish or on a chair poolside listening to tunes in one ear while telling the kids what they shouldnt be doing.

I’m in a pretty good place with myself right now. I’m to a point that I’m no longer stressing myself out if it’s too hot to run, or if I can’t get my house perfectly clean.  I’m just happy with myself and it feels really good.

I think that I am a pretty positive person in general since I decided to fix myself up.  I am surprised that the sunshine has added to it. I was so negative at one point in literally consumed me.

So all in all? 600 days of me and im going strong, living my life and learning day by day.

Day 594: Life as I know it

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on July 22, 2011

Life is weird at times. I mean there are days that I sit around wondering if the day will ever end and then days that fly by in the blink of an eye. Now summer is here I find the time zooming by and I am in bliss as I have sunshine, camping and running to fill my time.

My addiction to coffee is getting worse. I am now brushing my teeth like a lunatic to avoid stains. Good thing I never tried crack I guess.

The greatest news to tell is I have lost more weight. I tend not to talk about weight as I don’t seem to be loosing any, but this week I have. So I am happy to say I am at 193 now. The 180’s are in sight……….

Day 592: Gym

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on July 20, 2011

I am fully committed to going to the gym tonight. I didnt run again last night as I have a weird twang in my thigh. I decided that I should listen to my body and wait that one out. If it feels good tonight I will do an hour on the treadmill then my 30 minute workout. Either way I will be at the gym.
Food yesterday went pretty well. The only really bad thing I ate was a jumbo freezie but since it is hot as hell I think I will live.
Also found out that the hole in my tooth is just a chip so I can stop thinking about root canals and stressing about how I would pay for one without benefits. Finally a perk from a family members line of employment!
Thats all I got for you. Sometimes I am pretty boring. More so since I stopped drinking 🙂

Day 591: On the Wagon

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on July 19, 2011

Its a new week and I have committed to being a good girl in the kitchen this week. I have been maintaining a consistent weight the past little while and I truly believe that if anything I am in starvation mode. When I am being good I am eating 6 small high protein meals a day. When I am bad I am eating maybe 3 meals a day.
Anyway I am back on the wagon with my egg whites, protein muffins and chicken. I need to really kick things up a notch if I want to ever reach that goal I made.
Other than that it is hotter than hell here and I am loving it. I am the Queen Bee of summer and will soak up every minute of it!

Day 590: Shameful

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on July 18, 2011

It was a shameful weekend of sin.
I didn’t go to the gym at all.
I ate out several times
I watched 13 hours of Breaking Bad (thats the full first season and half of the second season)
I spent plenty of quality time with my pool.
Not going to sweat it though.
Its Monday.

Day 589: Nothing

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on July 17, 2011

When I say nothing I mean the only productive things I did where grocery shop and breath.
I spent 3 hours floating around the pool drinking wine and singing top 40 hits off the radio.

Day 588: Golden Silence is unsettling

Posted in Uncategorized by pishposh71 on July 16, 2011

Facts about me.
I am a mother.
I am a daycare provider.
I have a house that is always noisy
I am always on the go
I always have a list on paper, my blackberry or my head at all times.
I hate being bored and require entertaining so I don’t end up in a coma.

Facts about this weekend.
My youngest kids are gone camping.
My oldest kid is at my mother-in-laws.
I don’t have daycare on weekends.
I don’t have a dozen stray kids when my kids are gone.
I still require entertaining.
I still have a to do list in my head.
Its a weird and quiet weekend. When I have an empty nest I may go crazy or have perm-a-grin at the perfection of cleanliness my house will have.

So what the hell do yo do when you don’t have kids? I mean other than the obvious thing.
For us it is going out for dinner. A meal out for 5 is limited to only McDonald’s or places like that because of the cost factor. The hubby and I checked out a new wing place and had a nice meal. I had pulled BBQ pork as I am not a wing person. We went to Walmart and didn’t even go to toys or get a cart. No one whined to get anything which was fantastic. We came home and I managed to talk my husband into riding his bike with me for my evening 5K run as it was almost 11 when I went. That was rather cool. Came home and almost flashed the neighbor with my exit of the pool which was not so cool. I swear my white untanned bits actually glow in the dark.
All in all a pretty relaxing night but weird as shit not to have the kids with me that’s for sure.

Day 587: Just Me

Posted in Re Inventing Me by pishposh71 on July 15, 2011

I thought it was just about being unhappy with the fat.  I thought that it was just about having hip bones again and the ability to smile with merely one chin.

It really has been about so much more than that.  I have discovered so much about myself in the last year or so. I consider myself a new woman and I’m not even done.

Hello Me.
