Back on the Wagon

So I have stepped back onto the wagon after a huge falling off, I cannot believe I allowed things to spiral out of control like I did. But I am back on, watching every bite that goes into my mouth and I will let you know at the end of the week how it is going. So far, one day down, it is going good. Although I really want a Santa cookie from Starbucks, however I am resisting. I will have to see how many points it will cost me to eat it, that may cure me of any lingering desires.
The past week was a blur, it was busy and non-stop, first off I worked 5 days last week, and I know what you are thinking, well, Angie I work five days a week every week. For me it was 3 10 hour days followed by 2 eight hour days. Then it was waking up and going into the studio to record with Shanon on Saturday, we had such a great conversation! Then there were technical difficulties and our new show did not air Saturday evening. But that’s ok, I told Shanon perhaps God knew better than us and someone out there needed to hear that one again, or for the first time. So a new show will be on this coming Saturday, I hope you all will listen. After the studio was the grocery store, which I loathed, I hate grocery shopping, but I did it and then home to my pajamas and laundry.
I have had Jeffrey’s dog while the kids were out of town, and he called Saturday and asked if I wanted to bring Russ back on Sunday. I told him that made me happy because I was already in my pajamas. He said that I could also help him and Tess decorate their Christmas tree on Sunday. A good time was had by all, we decorated and laughed and had a good time. Back home for more laundry, ugh, it never ends.
I did it again people, I watched The Walking Dead before trying to fall asleep on Sunday night, I don’t know why I did it. Spoiler alert, if you have not watched it, stop reading, Carl was so sweet when he named the baby. He chose his third grade teachers name, Judith, that is a good name, a strong name, that baby is going to need a strong name. How creepy is that Governor, man, I would not want to meet up with him, on a dark street, a lit street or any street. He has so many creepy things going on in that town; I can’t wait till he and Rick meet up. He made a major mistake taking Glen and Maggie, and what did he do to Maggie? He is in for it! I can hardly wait for next week.

Starbucks, Weight Loss and Friday

I did something horrible yesterday, I fell off the wagon, I had sugar, and while most of you might think its ok to fall off once in a while, it is not ok for me. Yesterday I had a bite of hummingbird cake and of pound cake. Last night I crashed, literally my body crashed from all of the sugar, I went home from work and by 8:30 I was passed out. No Tylenol PM or wine was involved, I promise, it was a sugar crash, I slept hard and woke up feeling like I was coming off a three day binge. Horrible. I am a sugar addict, I cannot have it, I have consequences to eating it, a lot of people don’t and that’s fine but I do.

Dieting is simple in nature, you eat less, exercise and you lose weight, it is not easy, there are pitfalls, and there are temptations everywhere we look. You cannot walk into a store without being assaulted by the temptations of candy, cookies, cakes and pies, they are at the checkout counter, they are when you first walk in. I fight this everyday, yesterday I caved, I fell off the sugar wagon and paid a price. I will not be doing that today, back on the wagon I am. I am angry with myself this morning, I forgot my yogurt at home, every morning I have Greek yogurt and I love it, I forgot it. I did remember my blackberries, but man I need some protein, especially after my binging yesterday. Oh well, I shall persevere.

I am very happy today is my first Friday of the week, I have made a decision, not life changing, however important for me. I have decided to only have Starbucks on the real Friday of the week. The reason for this is I want to keep my relationship with Starbucks special; I also want to keep my wallet somewhat fuller and my waistline slimmer. I love Starbucks and there are healthy choices to be had there, my favorite is a Venti Passion Tea Lemonade unsweetened, so good, so good for you. However, I still love my coffee treats, these days I like them soy milk and low fat, low sugar, but even then they still have a lot of points. I like using my points for other things, so, once a week Starbucks and I will be getting together to cement our relationship.

I hope everyone has a great day, I have great plans for tomorrow, I will be getting my hair done, can’t wait to see Beatrice and hear about her trip to Kenya. Then I will be seeing Thomas Alexander, not many people know this, but I named him after the very first one of my ancestors that came to this country in 1774. I don’t think his dad even knows this, alright peeps I am totally outy!
