Another mixed up week

I peaked at my weight today and it was WAY up from where it has been. I'm not quite sure what I've been doing differently, but I'm going to try really hard to eat a breakfast and get up earlier in the day. I wonder if sleeping in hasn't been hurting my weightloss goals.

Today I did an old workout video. It was a cindy crawford video that I got and did once in college. hehe. It kicked my ass, especially my arms. Right now as I type this, I can feel my muscles quivering. LoL. What a weird feeling. My left shoulder is really hurting. It has been a chronic problem for me since high school, so I hope I didn't push it too hard.

I signed up for a library card at the local library today. I was wanting to look up that book, or the book on tape, The Secret, but apparently they don't have it? Did I screw up the name? I picked up a couple of recipe books because I'm getting a little tired of my own cooking and I didn't find any recipes that really interested me. If anyone out there has a cool recipe, send it my way =) I'd really appreciate it. One of the books I picked up was a weight watchers title, it looked old, but I gave it a try. I couldn't believe how much fat was in the recipes!! I'm not doing any particular type of weight loss program, just trying to cut fat (I'm in love with cheese) and somewhat cut the carbs (love the mac and cheese!) which pretty much has me eating more proteins, vegetables, and fruit. Problem is, green veggies have a tendenacy to make my belly hurt really badly =0/

I'm curious if anyone out there uses weight loss supplements. I've heard a lot about hoodia, green tea, etc. and I wonder if anyone has testimonials about a product. I know there is no "easy way" to loose weight, but any help is good =)

Okay, I'm going out of town to visit my boyfriend tomorrow, so I'm not sure if I'll blog. He is going out of town on a business trip this week so I think I'll pop in to spend a little extra time with him tomorrow night. Have a great Wednesday =0)

Breakfast: Nature Valley Cereal
Lunch: Leftovers! 2 tortillas, 1/2 grilled chicken breast, 1/2 slice of cheese, salsa
Dinner: TV dinner >.<>
Snack: Celery stalk with hot sauce --celery with peanut butter (peanut butter is yummy! but it is SOOOOOOOOOOO addictive and bad for you!)

Umm...yeah, I need recipes/ideas on ways to eat celery too. I really thought I'd enjoy it with hot sauce (cause I love it when buffalo chicken is served along side of celery) but that didn't work out so much for me. Once again, ideas are truely appreciated.

Sorry I don't have any great recipe ideas off the top of my head but I do 'tag' my posts that have recipes in them, so if you go under 'labels' on my blog and hit recipes that might give you a few ideas.

Re: your comment ... I had to laugh at your comment "My initial thought while reading this post was, "I bet it is muscle!" but you didn't sound too interesting in that idea " Too funny!!! lol Yep I know all the head knowledge when it comes to weightloss (was a weightwatchers leader for a year) ... sometimes it feels better to have a rant on my blog and get it out then I can move on.

Thanks anyway, I appreciated your encouragement!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I tend to use humor these days. Keeps my mind off the hunger pangs in my gutt! I have seen "The Secret" out on CD at some stores - its out there, but very popular here in Canada - not sure if it was Oprah who brought it out, but seems that any book she talks about hits #1 right away. Keep at the blogging - I do find it helps - and I do draw strength from reading others blogs - will keep an eye on you - take care!

Hey there,

Thanks for your comment. Mom is doing well and we had a GREAT visit with each other.

Sorry it took me so long to come visit your site... I've not been up for sitting at the computer for a while. Once mom is on her feet again (literally) I will have to check out some more of your writing.

Thanks again,

The Secret is the right title, I just went out and bought the DVD (haven't watched it yet) because I'm no longer allowed a library card. Looong story.

I'd give you celery advice, but I hate the stuff. Pretty much the only vegetable I truly can't stand.

By the way, peanut butter is very good for you - in the right form! That said, Skippy full of sugar is awful, while the health food store "churn on the spot" peanut butter is amazing, especially for your skin.

So that's my little rant for the day. And, I've blogrolled you :)

RE- Comment, thanks hun for your comment about the chewing gum (Skittle gum) fab idea! I might keep a look out for them, can't say I've seen them over here though, although I just don't look, I tend to walk around with my eyes shut...heehee.

I will be back later to read today's entry
