My Determination

My determination to be 20 lbs lighter by March is kind of bittersweet. Bitter because I don't feel like I am going to make it. However I still keep to my determination. Sweet because the plan I put into place are actually working. With my lunches plan and ready in the morning I just grab and go. Yesterday lunch was really good. Southwestern Chicken Salad!

I started with bagged salad it's really quite the best way for me to get it. I dont have to cut it up.
Then I add already prepared chicken breast strips ( not fried chicken strips) These had a southwestern santa fe seasoning grilled into them. I heated them in the microwave 60 seconds and then I added Torilla chips strips also Santa fe seasoning with Thousand Island dressing. It was so good and very filling. So I am having the same thing today but I will be adding some tomatoes to it. I had the tomatoe yesterday but I did not have a knife to cut it up. But I am prepared today. When the 3:00 grazing time came around I had some lite and fit Dannon yogurt White chocolate with raspberries. I was suprise how good it was. But I need to crunch something so I bought a cookie ( chocolate chip not really a favorite but it was available).

Dinner was done so when I got home Tag had taken the porkchops out of the freezer and heated them up in the oven and made some noodles with vegetables. This was also filling. Then at 10:00 pm the second grazing time of the day I had 2 ritz crackers with cheese and Propel fitness water.

This morning I started with a Seasame bagle toasted with butter this was about 8 points
Since I am having the same lunch and snack this will be about 8 points which leaves me 16 more points to use for the day.

I got some new workout dvd. Amped by billy banks it come with the 3 lbs bar to use with the work out but for the first week you are not to use the bar until you get use to the routine. I will let you know how that works out.

Well its lunch time!

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
