That's what I feel like.....Ughh.
Last week was the crappiest eating week on record in the longest time. Easter Week junk wound it's way into my worst stress eating week EVER! The 14th brought the quarterly taxes and the billing and the pre-estimated taxes...and me having to do everything because that is my job. I really screwed the pooch in my time management and I deliberately ate when I wasn't hungry...and about 80% of the time. I guess it was bound to happen eventually.
So here's the skinny on "maintenance" - I think it just plain stinks. You try to ween yourself off of SP, but let's be real - you need it. And that little tidbit of info really pisses me off. I don't want to NEED anything. I WANT to be able to live life without this crutch ( I really should say tool), but it looks like I NEED it to maintain. Mind you, during this whole week at work of stress eating, I'm getting compliments on how well I look! Hahaha LOL ROFL You'd have thunk it would have stopped me from shoving the extra slice of pizza in my mouth! NOT! The mind plays weird tricks and this blog makes no sense.
I'm camping this weekend (home for a little bit in between for kid's baseball) and I'm going to let things be until Monday, when normal routine is back in stride. I no longer watch my nephew, which means I can actaully get out of my house on Mon & Fri with the 2 kids and go food shopping for my fruits & veggies instead of relying on Peapod...and I can exercise easier when the little guy naps. Tracking begins in full swing too. Food & Fitness. My compass is off and I need to get it back.
I would love to get a tummy tuck. My middle is depressing. Pizza dough central. Sounds gross, but all true. I don't think a billion situps could fix this one, but I guess that is what I have to settle on. Tighten what's underneath as best as I can. I guess that's why someone invented Spanx. Why is all of this bothering me now? Who knows. I just reconnected with people who only knew me at 185, and we are planning to meet next week. Is there pressure to look extra extra good? Most likely. I'm 35 to 40 pounds lighter now, but mentally, I'm at 165 again....lol even that would have been 20 pounds lighter than when they knew me! ROFL....I know - I'm mental!
Anway - I can't blog anymore b/c I have to put my MOM hat on. Do I feel better? a little bit. Can't wait to start tracking again. Back to my comfort zone, as much as I WANT to resist, I NEED to do this again.

I feel like I've given up computing for Lent! Facebook was active for a while - now it bores me to tears. Sparking in Maintenance Land is a little light too, for whatever reason....I will say that I'm so busy being a "Mom" that we've been constantly busy and when I stop...I stop and sit because sometimes it's just good to stop. And sometimes it feels so damn good you don't want to get up and at 'em ...which means I really am avoiding the treadmill because the basment was FREEZING the last 3 months. Spring cannot get here fast enough for me!!
So here's the news for the spring/summer:
- we bought a "new to us" canoe for our camping trips this year! I'm gonna be soooo sore when the season starts! I can't wait.
- I'm reading at my friend Fred's wedding on Labor Day weekend! West Virginia, here I come! I have to look uber-good. He's a facebooker - so I'm going to be plastered on the web ;) I bought a dress at Kmart for $9.00 on clearance that I am seriously considering wearing. A nice black architecturally designed sheath dress. It's my back-up if nothing catches my eye. With the right shoes & accessories and hair cut - I'm gonna be smokin'.
- I'm getting my haircut today...a slump means that something has got to change, and sometimes, a reminder of change is needed the most where you see it every single minute of the day...thus the chop. Extreme chop too. Angular to offset my round face I think. If I hate it....it'll grow in before the wedding in 6 months.
....PS So good to chop this hair off!!! I went to the girl who did my hair 10 years ago for my wedding...I was a real nice reunion! She gave it a good whack too! She's so current and is glad for the business (which makes me feel like I'm helping the small business owner in this crappy ecomony.) Thank god!! I feel renewed! So many things were done today, I cannot even describe - all within 4 hours. Accounting, haircut, kindergarten registration...like I said, time to sit and relax with my cherubs before the bus comes! LOL
....PPS I have to shout out to everyone for the birthday well wishes! You realy made my day! Thanks
