They can't fool me

For people like us who actually weigh our food, do you find what they say they put in there really isn't? I made a 12 oz of fish tonight so I could 6 oz for dinner tonight and 6 oz for tomorrow night. Um...6 oz tonight and 4 oz tomorrow??? Then I was making ground turkey 19.2 oz, I got 6 oz, 4 oz, and another 4 oz. That doesn't add up!!!! Oh well, Boomer was happy she got 2 oz of the turkey so I guess there really was 16 oz all together. I fixed my hubby the calzone mmmmm.....it smelled sooooo good!!!

I took some pics even though Tony didn't tell me too Indifference You can see them on BFL-tracker which I am sure many of you are familiar with. It is easier to see the changes so I still load them there. I am REDHEAD75 if you want to see!!

Here is the latest bicep comparison:

There's no turning back now!

This is the start of week 8! I have been eating so clean I can't believe I am the same person. There have been a few "peanuts" in there occasionally but other than that 100% on. I have only had one cheat which was Super Bowl weekend! GO ME!!

Airplane Wishes 1

Tomorrow is my hubby's 31st b-day. I got him a Nintendo Wii and he is going to be sooooo excited!! I also got him the Daughtry CD. I am making him a pizza calzone mmmm....I am having fish and broccoli, imagine that. He's not a cake person so I don't have to worry about that.

My treadmill didn't get fixed today Crying 2 the board that needs replaced didn't arrive. So I rescheduled for Wednesday.

Sunday, February 25, 2007


I was out until 4:00am and I didn't get up until 10am:( This means I have missed two meals today. It may be good for my digestive system to take a break right now though?? Have I mentioned how much I love low carb ketchup? Yummy!

Tomorrow is shoulders!! Plus my treadmill is suppose to be fixed so I can get back on track with the weight loss again.

Well i'm going to go finish watching Pros. vs. Joes with my hubby!!

Saturday, February 24, 2007


I just text my hubby and told him it's probably a good thing he isn't home right now. Even my dog just ran upstairs! Wow, I feel better and i'll leave it at that:)

Now I may run to Kohl's and shop! They open at 7:00am and then i'll do my usual Target run. I haven't opened my workout for today but I always love Saturday workouts!!

I am going out with my sister tonight! That is twice in one year watch out Indiana! I use to go out Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday!


That is until about 10 years ago when I got a real job. Real jobs suck. What can I say I love to dance!!! Plus my friends moved to Florida and I was still breastfeeding at that time. I am a mommy's girl big time!! I won't have kids in fear that they will be spoiled little ginger kids like me. My dog is spoiled and it drive my hubs crazy!! I am going to take her shopping today because its just us today and we are going to have girl day:) She is laying patiently on the couch waiting for me to make my move out the door and get her a Jumbone. That is the Saturday ritual. I may post something else later today since I am going to be bored out of my mind. Husbands you can live with them and you can't live without them????

The female body is crazy

Isn't it strange how you can go from man I am starting to look good to the next week feeling like you have gained 20 lbs!!! My husband says he always knows when I am getting ready to start because I stand in front of the mirror and complain. I didn't think I really did that but I was doing it just a bit ago. Even after losing 11 lbs(could be more??) I still feel like crap at this time.

I had an awesome workout as usual though! Kind of hard doing the abs part but I managed. I cannot wait until Monday and I get my treadmill fixed!! I will start seeing more results once I get back on that thing.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!!


I am so glad today is Friday! Of course Mike is going skiing tomorrow and I'll be by myself. I like alone time though its good for you.

Workouts and eating on 100%. I have an addiction now to dry roasted peanuts though. I need to not buy those anymore.

Beka-I feel a little better but hope to feel a lot better after I drink my coffee:) Sometimes that triggers it. I just feel so bloated and my hubby needs a gas mask seriously!!

What's going on with me?

I went to the Dr. today and got my check up. Everything "felt" fine. I need to go get blood test done sometime this week because she wants to make sure my cholesterol and thyroid tests are okay. I just had my choesterol tested at work recently so I know its okay. I am worried because when I got back to work to freshen up I had "the brown stuff" when I wiped. Sorry if this is TMI but maybe someone else has experienced it and can relate? I just got off of my period last week so I don't know why its happening? I am not pregnant although I have never been on birth control and yes my husband and I do have sex Hmm 2

Now on to more important things. Well there is Boomer with her fish wanting to play!!
I worked my legs today and it was awesome!! I love when Tony throws in something you just know is going to kill you but you love it anyway!! While I was in CVS I had to wait longer than expected so I was starving. I grabbed a balance bar(better than Hershey's) and ate it. I feel bad about it but it is a protein bar? I don't want to starve away my hard earned muscles!!

Yesterday rocked!

My workout yesterday was awesome! One of my favorites so far. The only thing that could have been better was the use of my treadmill instead of the gayzellle.

Well it's Sunday so that means bake chicken, asparagus, and turkey for the week to come. I even weigh and put in baggies with the ounces on it. 4 oz, 5 oz and 6 oz. I throw some back in the freezer if I know they are for Thursday or Friday just to be safe.

I go to the doctor tomorrow. YUCK! I need to though I haven't been in 5 years or so. This is the normal doctor not the girly doctor. I am comfortable going there every year for some odd reason. I hope he can tell me why I have been backed up. It is definetly not my diet!!

Ooh I forgot to mention my hubby who can't keep secrets told me what I am getting for my b-day present. It's not until July but he is taking me to New York City!!! I can't wait!!

Lazy Day

Mike and I went and saw Hannibal at 10:30 this morning because the movies before noon are only $5. Yes we are cheap like that. On the other hand I bought a new Gayzelle because my mom's was on my nerves.

It is still snowing outside! If you haven't ever felt your boogers freeze come to Indy right now and experience it. It's AWESOME!

She sits there and waits for me to wipe the snowballs out of her paws:)
She got a manicure today, we played beauty shop.

Friday, February 16, 2007

I think I found the culprit

Sugar-free popsicles!! I cannot eat sugar-free things period. It's the sorbitol in it, cramps me up like crazy. I didn't think that having 3g of the stuff would harm me. Boy was I wrong. Sorry Mike, put on your gas mask.

My treadmill won't be fixed until Feb 26th Thumbs Down

My workout tomorrow is going to rock!! I can't wait! Mikey and I are celebrating Valentine's tomorrow. We are going to see Hannibal Rising, how romantic. Couples

I won't be doing this though Sharing Popcorn unless I smuggle in 100 cal packs for us. That is what I still have my huge Espirit purse from 1995 for. I only use it on vacation and movie trips.

Have a great weekend everyone!! We are suppose to get more snow! YIPPEE not.

Thursday, February 15, 2007

I'm full of poop!

Literally! I have not gone in 4 days!!! Tony said to up my greens and cut back on the glutamine? We'll see.

Sitting here drinking my post workout shake. That is my favorite thing of the day. I spent a total of 43 minutes on the gayzelle! What is Tony thinking? The most cardio i've done so far is 30 minutes and now on the gayzelle I have to do 43 minutes, come on.

For Martha:)

Shoes are wet with snow! So I am barefoot. This is how Monica Brant gets to looking like she does!!!

Abs are starting to get here!

Floating Holiday!

Hooray! I am staying home today Too Happy 1

Sears is suppose to come and check out my treadmill this morning. So I have had two cups of coffee, took out the trash and cleaned the kitchen. I love days off of work. Except when it looks like this

That's my trash can lid dang it, it blew off. Today is leg day and I will try and use my smith machine so I can lift heavier. Then after I fry my legs I will be doing this

The Gayzelle

Well I did work up a sweat and my legs are sore?? I am sorry I bad mouthed the Gazelle. I bought a Smith Machine last week and got it all put together, started to use it today and something isn't right!! I am having the worst luck with my equipment. I will not go to a gym though! Too many germs and people! Yes I am weird and proud of it!!!! I also don't get sick and I haven't murdered anyone, yet.

Sunday, February 11, 2007


Yesterday after my awesome workout I was downstairs, husband's running on the treadmill and I hear something weird?!! I ran upstairs and the treadmill had stopped and my hubby was huffin and puffin. "What happened" I say? To make a long story short, it's broke. Of course I freak out and throw a tantrum like any redhead would until he called the service department. They are coming Tuesday and will probably have to replace it which could take a month. I checked my receipt and I bought it last year on 1/15 and it was delivered on 2/15. I pray it doesn't take that long.

So in my disoriented state I call Tony. I told him about my situation and I CANNOT go outside right now being 0 degrees and all. I let him know my mom has a gazelle and he said get it over there. He told me don't worry we will work through this. I am soooo glad I bought a warranty on my treadmill because if it isn't an easy fix they will just replace it with a new one. It is a Proform 650E so it's not a hunk of junk??? So Yippee I get to use the gazelle for a bit.(those are gay imo)

Moral of this story is I told my hubs when my last treadmill broke he wasn't using my new one because of course I blame him for the problems. He runs on the thing at 9.0~10.0 and I know those aren't made to do that, it's not a gym $5000 treadmill. Actually when we were in Ft. Lauderdale last year we went to the hotel's gym and he broke their treadmill!! He only weighs 155lb so neither one of us are lards. I let him know when this one gets replaced, sorry babe no treadmill for you. I need to look hot in my little bikini by April 28th.

Tony tells me I should do a figure comp because I have a great frame and i'm making good progress. I just don't know if I could do it or not? I read Beka's post and think of her carb depleting and I feel like I am already carb depleting, how much worse could it get?? I am going to her comp to check it out so she can give the scoop on how bad or good it is.

Hold on there is more. As I am losing weight and see new lines, veins(not popping all the way out yet) I think all of my life I have wanted to be thin. I mean Nicole Ritchie thin. When I hit 30 something changed and I am all about being healthy now. As I see my body changing I feel like my arms are actually getting thin? I don't really like it. When I see this chick I want to look like this. My hubby says NO WAY!!

Gonna Go Eat at Joe's

Crabshack that is. My hubby, sister, brother-n-law and dad are going to eat there. Dad's choice so I'll deal with it. I've already been online checking the nutrition values of the food:) I'm going to get the cobb salad with grilled chicken, no bacon, eggs, or bleu cheese.
Worked my biceps and shoulders today and yes I took a pic. I won't bore anyone with pics of my biceps everytime I work them out. Plus I know they will actually be growing tomorrow while they are recovering:)
Flexed Arm

I spent $144 at Target this morning!! That's typical though but I did buy my hubby the movie Troy for Valentine's Day. The most expensive thing besides the DVD was $6.82. Guess what it was??? ASPARAGUS!! I still can't believe how much that crap cost.

Thursday, February 8, 2007

Have you ever?

Worked out so hard that you are like "Oh man why did I do that"? That was me today. My abs are going to be killing me tomorrow!!!

This guy I work with gave me a 5 lb container of cookies n creme whey protein!! He didn't like the taste and it is the kind I use anyway so WOOHOO! I offered to pay him but he said no. It's so hard being cute

Happy Hump Day!

I had an awesome workout yesterday even though it involved chest. I really put my mind to it and cardio was awesome too. I did the walk/run at 4.0/8.0. That is amazing for little ol me! Meals are 100 percent and I can't wait to go workout right now because it's back night!

Tony told me not to weigh anymore until he says which isn't a problem for me. He said next weigh in he was me to have lost 2 lbs. NO PROBLEM. I am starting to get to a point now though that I know the pound loss will decrease Weepy That is okay though because I know even if I don't see it on the scale wise, my body fat will still be going down. Well, time to workout!

Monday, February 5, 2007


It was great driving through Indy last night! The atmosphere was awesome and I was happy cause my hubby was in a good mood:) We knew if Manning went to the Super Bowl there was no way he was losing!!!
By the way this was me last night Fat Woman 3
I did alright, I had bbq pork(no bun), baked beans, veggie tray not too bad? Then out came the dessert. Cookies, brownies, and FONDUE!!! Let's just say I don't want anymore chocolate for another 34 or more days!

Sunday, February 4, 2007


We are all fired up in Indy for the Super Bowl! We have had "blue friday" this whole month and the city is all blue! The Catholic school system is closing and so are many places. Unfortunately not my work:(
Recipe of the day is Beer Bread
3 cups of self-rising flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 can or bottle of beer

mix ingredients and put in loaf pan
melt 1/2 stick of butter and pour over top
bake at 375 for 45 minutes!!

This is sooo good especially with spinach artichoke dip! I won't be having any though even though its my free day:( I'll see what else is there to splurge on!!

Here is my girl supporting the Colts!!!

Picture time!

Side: My jeans can tell my butt and thighs are smaller!!

Back: Apparently my body loves my love handles too much,

it's time they part their ways!!

Front: I can see a difference here YIPPEE!!

Overall I am pretty pleased! I have lost 11 lbs. and feel so much better. I can not wait for another four weeks to go by and see my results! I need to get a new bathing suit too. I have had this one forever!

I am going out today to get a Smith Machine!! This way I can really work my legs hard. I went to the grocery store this morning and bought a supply of Mrs. Dash seasoning. What's that in the back??? I don't know how those got there:)

Weigh in

Quick post before I head out and seize the day.

1/1/07- 133lbs
1/15/07- 127lbs
2/3/07- 122 lbs!!

Yes I am a happy girl right now! I'll try and post pics later. Being the gross type of woman I am I will mention that I think I may drop another couple of pounds later. Yes, I've been back up lately.

Very Constipated

Power Walking!!

I was so pleased to see that is all that was on the agenda for today!

60 mins later
4.62 miles more walked in my life
691 calories hopefully from those tortilla chips still clinging to my ass from New Years

I have to say it wasn't the pleasant rest I was hoping for but I feel good now!!

I was thinking about what I am going to eat on my cheat meal Sunday. I am scared too like Reese had mentioned. It's almost like I hope they have only shrimp cocktail and veggies at the Super Bowl party i'm going too. My hubby said lets just eat what is on you're plan for dinner and go there and not pig out WE can do it. He is sooo sweet! So I won't know until I can report Monday what the damage was or was not Hmm 2

Bicep Watch!

Why does my freaking arm look so white?? I don't see a difference yet but I am waiting patiently! Who am I kidding, I am not patient. I haven't eaten a freaking drop of anything bad
for a whole month and have been working out like mad I want a bicep!!!
