July 23rd, 2016: Being An Overcomer

Shoo-wee! Today was MUCH harder than I anticipated! I had 2 birthday parties to go to. I thought ahead and packed my lunch and snacks in a cooler, so that I wouldn't be arriving anywhere hungry. I started out my day with Zumba in the gym, and then I had someone meeting me at the Y to order some makeup. Afterwards, I headed up to the Arc Trainer and did 15 minutes on the Weighloss Program and then headed to the sauna for 15 minutes. I feel like the sauna really loosens up my muscles and helps everything relax after a workout. I forgot how much I loved it! It's also great for your skin and immune system, so for me, it's kind of a no-brainer. So I'll be making sure to hit up the sauna at least 3 times a week from now on.

After my workout, I got all showered and unsweaty (I made that word up), and painted my face, and headed to my bosses house for her surprise birthday party. :) That's what I have been working on the past few days. A gift for her. It turned out soooo cute! It's a Beer Bouquet! I'll put a pic at the bottom so you can see. I was so proud of myself. Lol.

I stole the Birthday Boy today!! :)
So we get to her house and her husband had cooked all kinds of super yummy looking (and smelling) stuff. I came prepared, but dang! Big ole fat cheeseburgers, the fattest hot dogs I've ever seen! I wanted everything! It was seriously the most difficult temptation I've had so far. I kept trying to make justifications for how I could have some. In the end, I ate my lunch I brought with some super amazing cantelope and a teeensy weeeensy little piece of cherry dump cake. It was DELICIOUS! I mean, I could have eaten the entire pan!

After we visited for a while and played with her kittens (she has a Ragdoll Catery), I headed to my cousin, Jessica's House. Her little boy just turned 6, and he is one of my main men (he proposed to me last year xoxo), so I just had to go hang out with him! I had a wonderful time visiting with family and having fun.

I came home (later than I should have) and threw together some Breakfast Style Pizzas and turned on Food Network Star (I love that show!), and here I am. Overall it was a great day. I turned down birthday cake TWO times, and stuck with my calorie goal. Begrudgingly. Lol. I REALLY wanted some ice cream cake. Bad. So bad.

And that's it. I made it. I survived normal life. But I'm still not skinny. What the crap? Lol. I can do this. I think I can, I think I can! Tomorrow is weigh day. I am NOT looking forward to it. Every morning this week has been disappointing. I think that's why it's been such a hard week. I mean...I know part of it is a water issue, complicated by being a stupid woman (that one special week a month), so I KNOW that is affecting it. But it still makes me crazy. To do all of that hard work ALL week long and not see what I's hard. Pray for me. I'm struggling y'all. It's all in my head. My brain is going crazy with this stuff. Cravings, laziness, I just want it to be easy. WHY CAN'T IT BE EASY?! Lol.

Alright, I've got some things to do before I go to bed and then I'm headed to bed to sleep as long as I want! Here is the breakdown of my food choices for today:

Breakfast (on the go)
2 boiled eggs, 4 pieces of Turkey Bacon = 296 calories

Turkey wrapped cheese logs, small tomato, Baby Dill Pickles, tiny piece of Cherry Dump cake, 2 tortilla chips w/cheese dip (I had to try it), and Cantelope = 515 calories

Afternoon Snack
Almonds & a Protein Shake = 270 calories

Breakfast Pizza (2 Joseph's Pitas with, salsa as the sauce, scrambled egg, cubed turkey breast, mushrooms, spinach, and Four Cheese Shredded Cheese) = 430 calories

That puts me at 1511 calories. Not too shabby. I'm out of here y'all. Have a great day tomorrow! Talk to ya tomorrow night!
