Can not wait for Monday!

Saturday, August 06, 2016

Wow! Things have been so hectic around here for the last two days. I only got part of the exercise I wanted to get done as there was just no time to stop. I will be so glad when Monday gets here! I love my granddaughter dearly but I will be glad when her birthday party is over tomorrow. So much goes into planning a birthday party especially when you are making everything yourself. I have been working on tissue flowers for the past two days and I finally got them finished this morning. I took hubby and daughter to work, cleaned my kitchen and put dinner in the crockpot. The cake is in the oven now and next I am making the totem pole. She is having a Hawaiian luau party. I still have to make the seven layer bean dip and the fruit tray. I also have to fit my 2 hours of exercise in, take son in law to work at 1pm, pick daughter up at 2pm, pick hubby up at 3pm and somewhere in there I have to remember to breathe. LOL.

Tomorrow morning we have to build the tiki bar and the balloon archway for the door. I feel like we really haven't done anything since there is still so much to do.
UAMS called me yesterday and wanted me in Little Rock on Monday. I told them there was no way I could make it that quick. Hubby has to let them know he needs off for two days for the consult. I am not able to ride in a car long enough to make the trip both ways in one day. So they had to schedule me for August 22nd. So more waiting for us.
On the bright side of things I lost another 3.2 pounds this week so i get to buy another charm for my bracelet. This puts me at 31 pounds lost since joining in May. I am just so excited!
Now if I could just remember to pack snacks with me when I have to run errands I would be happy. I have been sabotaging my diet being on the road so much. This is not good and I know it. I am just having a disconnect somewhere because I know I should not be eating fast food. I know about the calories and chemicals used. I know most of it is high sodium and high fat. I still stop and get it anyway. I do not have any idea how to fix this. I know I want to get healthy but still make bad choices. The trouble is I don't feel guilty ordering or eating it. The guilt does not come until after I come home log the food.

Well the first cake layer just came out of the oven so time to start the second layer.
God bless you and keep you on your journey! Have a fabulous day!

    There's addictive stuff in fast food. I had to completely quit to get it under control, my sympathies on your struggles.

    After reading back through the blogs, I'm now caught up on your recent news. now that I'm caught up on UAMS! I'm sorry that you had to postpone your appointment. Be safe and enjoy the luau!

    There are times I have to bow to the necessity of fast food. I researched nutritional facts and found the best options for me at several restaurants in our area.

    A couple of streaks that I track to help me in avoiding fast food restaurants are "No dining out 5 X a week" and "no soda" everyday.

    I buy bulk walnut haves and portion out 1/4 cup baggies. They travel easily, are healthy, filling and satisfying. They are high in beneficial fats and calories, so make sure they are within plan for you if you try it.

    The fast food thing is a reality when so busy. We just need to keep thinking about it and figuring out ways around it. Don't beat yourself up too much! Just be aware of it and mindful of trying to figure out how to cut it out. Breathe and rest when you are done! :)

    Wow your days are jam-packed! Bring water with you everywhere, and remember how far you've come- it will be tough with the fast food. I used to say, healthy this time, junky next time... That way you're good every other!
