Yeah, it's not great.
I really need to cut down on the snacking. And when I do snack, it needs to be healthier things. I have nectarines, plums and grapes right now, but have barley touched them! My son likes them, so that's good. I need to eat them too.
My headache last night turned into a migraine and I didn't do much today. I didn't go to the store like I need to, and ended up having pizza. I know SHOULD feel guilty... but I don't. It was really good and really hit the spot. I just have to make sure that was that, and it doesn't set off a 4 day ordering spurt like it used to. I DO wish I wouldn't have had 5 pieces though! There was no reason for that at all, it was just good- and that's not a good excuse!!!
The only thing that would have made it better would be pop. BUT I didn't have any :) That's one thing I am doing good with. Oh, and the treadmill :)

Total Treadmill: 16 minutes/ .62 miles
Consecutive days on the treadmill: 2

Besides the eating, everything else is great. My head ache is gone, I feel good. I'm pretty tired, so I'll be going to bed here in a minute. I gotta tell about my legs though :) I have noticed in the last 2 weeks that my legs look smaller. Still huge, but smaller lol. Before those last couple stressful days, actually the DAY it all started, I took my measurements again. I have lost a few inches and am very happy. I just ran into a bunch of drama and haven't posted it yet :) I'll try tomorrow.
So anyway, today I'm walking by and Ray tells me to hold on, then to turn around. I thought I had food on my shorts lol, but nope- he was looking at my legs! He said "Wow Tina! It must be your shorts or something, but your legs look small." haha, I don't mind if he thinks it's the shorts. I said, "OR it could be because I've lost 40 pounds!" haha :) But it made me feel good. I also told him now that I'm back on the treadmill my calves will probably bulk back up and be enormous :( but that's ok!

Oh! Another thing that happened was this morning. It was storming, and POURING rain when I had to go get Ray. I got outside and was instantly SOAKED. My flip flops were slippery and really hard to walk in, so I took them off, and ran the rest of the way to my car. Well... jogged :) It was probably only about 50 feet, but still! I only did it because I knew no one would see me lol :) BUT I wasn't out of breath or anything like I normally would be. Then since I had my shoes off, I had to move the seat up. And my stomach wasn't even touching the wheel!!! Wooo Hoooo!!!!!
I am still huge and have a long way to go, but these little victories show me that I am making progress. Slowly but surely!!!! :)


  1. I love frosted mini wheats [bite size/regular] because they are so high in iron. Don't know the calories - but they are my go to cereal because of the iron.

    I never tried the strawberry - are they good?

  2. I do to :)
    Strawberry is my favorite. The calories are a little high at 200 for the regular, and 180 for the strawberry. I also love the Vanilla flavor (which is different form regular, I didn't realize that before lol) but I haven't seen that in the store lately for some reason...

  3. Great that the strawberry has less calories - with fat free milk 1/2 cup it says add 40 calories [who knew?] but I am forever putting a cup or a cup and a half on my cereal [and it isn't fat free sad to say - so more calories]

    I need to try the vanilla too. Yum.
