Day 4 - 9

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 0 comments
Well I’ve discovered some things since Day 3. First, I love the chocolate shake! I’m tempted to put one in the freezer to see if I can make it taste like an actual milk shake. It’s already thick to begin with, but I will tell you that I actually had to use a small coffee cup and pour it in there through out the morning. Yes, it took all morning to finish one bottle partly because it did start to get warm so I had to put it back in the fridge. Thanks goodness we have a fridge at work! Second, thanks to my new found love of the chocolate protein shake, I think I’m going to change up my meal plan for the day and have my shake for lunch and have my meal of choice for dinner because like melissa commented on Day 2; you never know what will happen for dinner and if my hubby decides he wants to cook there’s no way I can resist! Third, the weekend isn’t as bad as I thought it would be!  The weekends are about the only time I actually have breakfast, probably because I usually make breakfast for Lil Seal, if he doesn’t go fishing with his daddy so I have my cereal. Fourth, in my opinion it takes more than two weeks before you see any weight loss because the first week is spent becoming accustomed to eating only Special K food, unless of course your superpower happens to be Will Power (mine definitely isn’t) so I’ll probably add another week.
Monday I was actually suppose to start Bootcamp at the Y, but thanks to my pinky toe not wanting any part of being stuffed into my tennis shoes, I had planned on coming home and working out on our Wii and having my mom bring Lil Seal to the house, well that didn’t go as planned because a Sprint tower decided to stop working which meant our phones weren’t working either so  I had to stop at my parents house instead making Monday  an exercise fail. So here’s to a better Wednesday!
And now, I know you’ve been waiting for this pic…the chocolate protein shake with the cup I used in the background!

Day 3

Started like this: alarm buzzes, hit snooze, alarm buzzes, hit snooze, snuggle next to hubby, finally get out of bed. Lil Seal, as we’re headed out the door starts to complain that he’s getting itchy, I can’t give him benadryl because that will knock him out and he won’t be able to go to school, so some Cortizone it is. When we get to school the nurse has to check him out to before he’s finally cleared to go to class. When I finally get to the office I realize I’ve forgotten my snack and meal bars! So of course I get hungry before it’s time for lunch (which I still had from yesterday since my parents surprised me with Atlanta Bread Co.) and I pay a visit to one of my co-workers who’s so evil she has a bowl full of Snickers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Almond Joys at her desk! And I walk away  with a Snickers and a Cup. Here’s what my plan should’ve been:
  • Milk Chocolate Protein Shake
  • Chocolate Peanut Protein Snack Bar <---I did have a Reese’s Cup  and a Snickers (snack size) :)
  • Chocolatey Delight cereal
  • Chocolate Delight Protein Snack Bar
  • My Choice
Well 2.5 out of 5 isn’t bad right? I finally figured out I need to add my meal plan to my calendar so I have a reminder and then I can put my snack bars with my lunch. It would be nice if I could add my plan straight from the app or even the website, but alas I can not. I also had a #duh moment today, as you know, I rarely have breakfast, but I then realized I could have my Milk Chocolate Protein Shake for breakfast, so that’s what I’ll start doing tomorrow. Breakfast time here I come!

Day 2 and a photo…

Wednesday, April 20, 2011 2 comments
‘cuz that’s what this place should mainly be about anyway.
So here’s what my meal plan should’ve been for the day:
  • Chocolatey Delight Cereal (have I mentioned I rarely eat breakfast?)
  • Chocolate Peanut Protein Snack Bars (this I had)
  • Milk Chocolate Protein Shakes
  • Chocolatey Pretzel Cereal Bars
  • Dinner – My choice
So like I said before, I’ve switched up my plan to have My Choice meal at lunch instead of dinner. My parents decided to take me out to lunch today so we went to Atlanta Bread Company. I love that place! I had the turkey sandwich on honey wheat bread and a chocolate chip muffin. So my plan was to have the protein shake for dinner, which I was looking forward to because, hello, it’s chocolate! And then things started going downhill. First, Lil Seal’s school called because right after lunch he broke out in hives! Twenty minutes and a trip to Walmart later we had picked up some Epsom salt and Cortizone and Lil Seal and his grandma were off to the house for a soak in the tub and a slathering of Cortizone. Things seem to be on the upswing…until I got home. The hubby had decided to give our Boxer a different type of dog food last night, and yep you guessed it he didn’t like it and the kitchen looked like that scene in Stand by Me (if you haven’t seen it go rent it/Netflix it/stream it) right after the pie eating contest. I waited for my hubby to get home to help me get Andre out of the house and then clean up the kitchen, needless to say after that it was time for some Sonic and that’s exactly what we had. Sonic burger, fries and a large coke baby! That was my order anyway.
So to end Day 2 I figured this photo would be perfect.
What do you think?

Why do I keep this job? Luke has told me we could run the bookstore together. Maybe because I still want some independence, maybe it’s the approaching wedding, but really I don’t know how much more I can take. Here’s what I'm talking about. I started a new job a few months ago to help pay for the wedding and I love most of the people I work with, but there are a couple of people who seem to think that if I’m gone (including when I have to call in sick to take care of Clary) that my desk somehow turns into a trashcan. Exhibit A:
Oh yes that would be the outside wrapping of letter sized paper left on my desk while I was out sick for one day, waiting for me when I came back to work the next day. The printer happens to be next to my desk so I guess for some people it’s easier to drop the trash on my desk instead of the actual trashcan.  And the rest of the paper? Faxes and mail that some think belong in a pile on top of my keyboard instead of my tray. I tell you some of these people make most Downworlders look like girl scouts! And the actual trashcan’s location?
On the other side of my desk, about two feet away! Oh yes. So I have to visit another office this week and decided to leave a reminder at my desk…
I think Clary’s rubbing off on me.

Day 1

Monday, April 18, 2011 0 comments
Today I've started the Special K diet, I had thought about doing it once before, but back then their selection wasn't the greatest. Now they have different ways you can go with it, if you go to their website you can choose between four different types of diet plans including a Chocolate Lover's Plan, hello! Can you guess which one I chose? On my plan it has my "regular" meal as dinner, but since I would get a lot of "is that all your eating??" type of comments at work I decided to switch my "regular' meal during the week days to lunch time. I'm also hoping to start boot camp at the Y next week to get some much needed exercise in and hopefully start using my Wii Fit Plus again. Lil Seal keeps asking me when I'm going to charge the balance board so I can't put it off forever. lol So we'll see how it goes, of course I did buy all the stuff for the full two weeks so if I don't complete it my hubby would probably be mad there's all this Special K stuff laying around in the cupboards!
Here's my meal plan for today:
Chocolatey Delight Cereal in the morning (which I didn't actually have)
Chocolatey Pretzel Cereal Bar as a mid-morning snack
My Regular Meal for Lunch (I had the cereal bar here so it's like dessert)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Meal Bar for dinner (I'll probably switch this to the Cereal I didn't have in the morning and have the meal bar if I'm still hungry)
Chocolate Delight Snack Bar as an afternoon/evening snack
They say you can have your normal drink(s) like you would if you weren't on the diet, but what's the point in going on a diet when you're going to have a Route 44?!? So now I'm trying to completely kick my Coke/Pepsi/Rootbeer habit and I'm making more pink lemonade, ice tea (the California kind not this dang Southern brown water stuff) and I bought some Crystal Light to try. I've already tried the Crystal Light Pink Lemonade and I didn't really care for it, it was ok, but it left a chalky taste in my mouth. I think I'll stick to Country Time and keep the Crystal Light as back-up and of course there's the good old fashioned water!
Well wish me luck! Day 1 is almost done and I didn't kill anybody or go out into the woods and hunt down a deer.
