I know I have been MIA. I have been so frustrated with this stall I am in and just really didn’t know what to say. I was hoping I could break it and be all like, “Look at how fucking smart I am!”

its-funny-cuz-u-is-stupid

But I’m not smart, apparently. Because I am still stalled.

UGH!!!!!

I am not perfect by far. But I am determined. Every time I do low carb, I get stalled at around 40 pounds. I get frustrated and pissed off and abandon the plan for low calorie/high carb. I’m not doing that this time. Mostly because I’m stubborn and now I feel like I have a vendetta against my rebellious body.

fuckit

So, I have just been trudging on. And not losing.

Here’s the things I think are holding me back:

1. Not enough sleep
2. Fucking PEANUT BUTTER!
3. Fucking POPCORN!
4. Too much snacking
5. Using net carbs

One of the battles I seem to be having lately is insomnia. Is this a side effect of menopause? Someone tell me now! It’s killing me. Last week, I spent one night laying wide awake in bed until 4:45am and then my kid woke up at 8am. This is not conducive to weight loss. GRRRR!

tired

Lately, I have been craving sweets. This is not me. I am not a sweet eater. I got fat eating onion rings, french fries, fried chicken, pasta, risotto, enchiladas, and tacos. But my one sweet spot in my heart is reserved for chocolate peanut butter ice cream. So I can’t have that low carb ice cream around because I could eat a quart in a week easily and it has ALOT of sugar alcohols. So I came up with a brilliant idea to use one tablespoon of sugar free chocolate chips mixed in with all natural peanut butter.

Now, overall, this is low carb… but not when you eat 4 tablespoons of peanut butter with it. Because 4 tablespoons is like 11 grams of carbs! That’s half of my carb allowance in general for the day! WTF? And I keep doing it! Someone stop me!

gluttony

No… REALLY… SOMEONE STOP ME!

The ONE thing that I miss on low carb more than anything in the whole wide world is bad, bad GMO popcorn with lots of real butter. And I can’t eat just a cup or two. I need to eat the whole damn bowl!

My husband and I watch and go to movies all the time. It’s like our thing. And movie theaters do not sell ANYTHING low carb. Jerky and pork rinds are NOT theater food. So shut your face if that’s your solution…

popcorn

In general, I do fine all day until I get off work. After I get my kid to bed, I am starving… I eat something… and then another something… and then some peanut butter… and then another something… GAH!

When I did low calorie/high carb, this was something I could work around. However, most of the items on low carb are high calorie or high protein. So I am constantly fucking my whole macro plan up! It’s so frustrating because I *know* what I am doing AS I am doing it!

I usually talk myself into snacking by making sure it’s low carb. But if it’s low carb, it’s usually high protein! Which just turns into glucose anyway! FML!

sabotage

For example, just now, I went and grabbed a chicken leg from the frig… I’m already at 80g of protein for the day! I didn’t need to eat the fucking chicken leg!

So this is how I am currently spiraling out of control. I do have a plan to stop it.

To Be Continued…

 

So, I had a couple of people ask me about what sauces I use. Apparently, I referenced them in some post I recently did. Sorry for not disclosing at the time, guys!

When you try to eliminate carbs from your diet, you rely on alot more proteins. And, sometimes, those proteins get boring. Not everyone likes Googling recipes or pinning recipes on Pinterest for hours on end… (it’s an addiction)

Me? Well, I do both of those things… but at the end of the day, I am more of a dreamer. I wish I had the motivation and time to try all the awesome recipes I find but I just don’t. I’m fucking lazy. I like simple and quick. Sauces help to expand your options with minimal effort involved.

I have a shit ton of sauces. I keep 10-15 on hand at all times and I have a shelf of unopened new ones waiting in the wings. It’s almost an obsession.

I always, always, always have mayonnaise on hand… that should be a given… I buy it in the huge institutional size and eat it every single day without fail. That’s a no-brainer there… Here’s the others:

SAUCE1

 

SAUCE2

Like my super fancy “labels”? You would think I would be more ambitious… I mean, I have like a billion pins on my boards over at Pinterest. Surely one of those pins would teach me to be super crafty and make some super cute labels for my squeezy bottles, right? Yeah… screw that. 😆

So, the reason I have so many sauces is that it lends variety to average meats. I could cook up a whole 5 pound bag of chicken breasts to eat for the week and have new meals daily just by changing up the sauce. This makes things super quick, easy, convenient, and CHEAP!

And, I know ya’ll like CHEAP! 🙂

Hope this answers some of your questions…. keep them coming if you have them!

PEACE!!!

Well, it has now been 4 months since I started LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) and I am feeling FABULOUS! I have now lost:

35.2 POUNDS

And that was with a full blown cheat day for my birthday where I gained 6 pounds overnight! I call that a WIN to have lost almost 8 pounds in a month. I mean, one whole week was just used working off my cheat day so the 8 pounds lost was really in 3 weeks.

I haven’t taken measurements yet, because I’m effing laaazzzyyy. (You all know this about me…) I hope to remember to do them first thing tomorrow morning.

From my prior post, I detailed out my planned cheat day and my recovery plan. It went very well and I lost all that I gained plus a few ounces. That’s fine with me. I really do feel like it was worth it. I had no ill side effects that so many others complain about other than just general fatigue… kind of like an extended carb crash. But it wasn’t awful or anything I would have complained about incessantly in the groups.

My recovery plan worked amazingly well. I had a full on chicken week. I precooked 3.75 pounds of chicken breasts. From that, I made several servings of several meals.

chixweek2

Most mornings I ate a spinach omelet because that is my go-to meal. The thing about these omelets is that you can add more fat or protein as needed. Plus they are creamy and yummy and hot, very much like my prior comfort foods that I loved…

This actually made for a very cheap eats week on LCHF. The chicken was on sale for $1.99 a pound last week. What pisses me off about chicken breast these days is that they add broth to them, because apparently, all the domestic chickens are flavorless. Plus, they are just trying to screw you over. You know it, I know it. So the 3.75 pounds of chicken breast only weighed like 2.5 pounds after it was cooked. So, whatever…

Anyway, for $7.44 for the chicken and a dozen large eggs at $1.49, I had all my protein for the week. I used 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro, a stalk of celery, a couple of tablespoons of mayo, and 2 small green onion stalks to make all of the above. I added one bag of steamable broccoli florets, a bag of spinach, a large head of romaine, one avocado, a bag of shredded cheddar, and sour cream. Even if you add in all the condiments I already had on hand, like soy sauce, sesame seeds, butter, salsa, sesame oil, and various snacks (usually 1-2 oz. nuts or sugar free candy/aldi’s bars), I spent maybe $30 for the week. That’s not bad…

So, for my recovery week, I tried my best to stay at 1400 calories or less. That was sometimes hard because I also was trying to keep my fat macro about 70%. That is super hard. But I accomplished this most days and I easily lost the 6 pounds I had gained from my super gluttonous cheat day (well, it was more like a 1.25 day).

Oh, and apparently, the menus are popular so here was the menu from my frig this last week:

Cheap LCHF Chicken Week Menu

You will notice that snacks aren’t listed here. I have gotten into this habit… well, it’s an old bad habit that is now adapted for this new way of living… but I basically buy cheap snacks when I see them. I actually am not a sweets eater. I got fat eating lowfat carbs like whole wheat bread, pasta, and rice and deep fried carbs like french fries, onion rings (yum!), and beer battered fish or hard shell tacos. I have no idea why I buy all these low carb sweets.

Basically, I horde snack foods “just in case”. Like, I am horrified at the thought that if I am desperate to eat — and there are days where I am working so hard that this does happen– I want the ability to snack on something and not feel incredibly bad about it. I have bags of various nuts, sugar free toffee squares and chocolate truffles, the new Aldi’s low carb bars, Quest bars, one serving packets of Justin’s almond or peanut butter, pork rinds, etc. in a shelf area in my office desk.

The thing is… I keep buying this shit and I rarely eat any of it. Or, when I do eat something, it is less than one serving of it. So the shelf is actually becoming a little full. I guess I need to stop that… Maybe. Kinda. I’ll try. 😛

PEACE!!!

 

When I started my new way of living/eating, I decided that I would have three designated cheat days a year: My birthday, my anniversary, and Christmas Day. I know people get crazy righteous about cheat days in online communities so I keep this shit to myself…

cheat meals 1

So, this weekend was one of those cheat days. If you want to see what I ate, feel free to go to my Myfitnesspal page and take a looksie. Yes. I documented it. The whole ugly day… fair warning — it’s a horrific carb filled nightmare. 😛

BUT

No regrets here. I don’t feel one bit bad. 🙂

Look… we are all human. Cake is good. Carbs taste fucking amazing. Let’s be real here. Life would be very sad without polenta or spaghetti or Popeye’s Spicy Fried Chicken or (insert your favorite carb here). I think it is entirely unrealistic to tell yourself you will NEVER have a certain something or another of pure bliss unless you will die from it.

I have a “foster” son who is highly lactose intolerant. He also has MS. 😦  He doesn’t need any help feeling like crap and he generally tries to eat healthy for his own well being. But he loves ice cream. He doesn’t eat it often but he does occasionally do it. For him, the risk is worth the pleasure.

That’s how I view cheat days. The risk is worth the pleasure. Sooo… How much weight gain did this pleasure cost me? 6 pounds.

😯

I know. It seems like alot. But if you check out my food log, you will see that I ate about 3500 calories for the whole cheat day. To gain 6 pounds of actual fat, I would have had to eat at least 21,000 calories. So it’s most likely water weight. (I hope…)

holiday-weight-gain

Anyway, people on Facebook and in the online groups would be freaking the hell out if this happened to them. I’m just kinda like “meh”… no biggie. I planned to do it. I knew what I wanted. I had a plan for the following week. I’m not curled up into the fetal position on my floor in deep throes of regret contemplating suicide. I’m good!

I think that the people who lose their willpower and unexpectedly fall off the wagon are the ones who freak out. Planning is key. I have known about this from the beginning. I did contemplate not doing it because I was actually within 5 pounds of my first goal (pre-happiness weight) but decided to just do it. I felt like if I didn’t stick with my plan now then I would talk myself into going off for a day later when it wasn’t as well planned out. THEN, freak out.

crackhead skinny

So I stuck to the plan. I don’t regret it. I’m doing pretty good. I don’t really get all the extreme symptoms that people speak of when they cheat like feeling horrible from all the carbs in their system or feeling like they have the flu. What’s that about?

I suppose everyone is different… but I had no ill side effects of eating carbs. I felt fine. I feel fine. My only side effect it seems is that I am extremely tired today. Like first trimester type fatigue where I probably could have slept all day if I didn’t have a terrible two toddler running my life right now. Other than that, no issues…

cheat meal bliss

Like I said, I have a plan for this week. The plan is to eat closer to 1300-1400 calories a day (about 200-300 less than my daily average) and be pretty strict on my water intake. Today, I ate about 10 grams of carbs and I would like to keep the carbs to between 10-15 all week. Oh, also, I’m doing an all chicken week! (I’ll do a separate post on that another time.)

It’s my first cheat day this year so I am not for sure that this “plan” will redeem me from the chinese meal-a-palooza, 10 cups of buttered popcorn, 2 mixed drinks, 3 beers, and the late night gas station pizza slice I downed in a parking lot full of bar patrons. But I’m okay with it all for now.

I might be freaking out in a week or two if I never recover from this, but I am banking on the odds being with me. Fingers and toes crossed!

weight loss gain

PEACE!!!

 

 

Hey, everyone! How is everything going? All here is fantabulous! 🙂

So, there were major lay offs this past week at my work… Whenever that happens (which is way to freaking often), I go into panic mode and try to plan out my life as if I actually know what in the hell is going to happen. I feel like I have escaped the axe so many times now that eventually they will have no one else to axe and here I am! I’m a sitting duck!

So anyway, I started panicking and trying to plan for what would happen if I get booted from my job of 20+ years. 😦

My husband and I have always bought separate groceries. That’s basically because he is a third shifter and eats meals completely separate from me. Plus, he has food weirdness… like, he will eat tuna sandwiches everyday for a month straight. That’s weird, right?

What all that means is that if I were to become unemployed, I would be on my own for food. Not that he would let me starve, but he might… you never know! 😉 I would still feel like it’s my responsibility to feed myself… so I mocked up a menu of my typical grocery list for a week to see how much it would cost me.

I see people online complain about the high cost of eating right all the time. And, I agree. If I was going to eat like shit as a single person, I could do it for about $20 a week. Hell, maybe even $10 a week! I have lived on Ramen before… 😐

But this is just one sample Low Carb, High Fat menu. I think I’m going to try to devise more “just in case”. Here’s the shopping list:

2 packages of the bigger leaf romaine lettuce (Wal-mart) $1.48 each x 2
1 – 16 oz. package of fresh spinach (Wal-mart) $2.88 each
18 Ct. Large Eggs (Wal-mart) $2.94
1 pound ground meat (Whereever on sale) $4 max
1 pound fish fillets (wherever on sale) $5 max
1 pkg. of Chicken Thighs – 8 to a package – (less than $1 a pound on sale)- $3 max
1 – 8oz. package Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese (wherever) $2.50
1 – 8oz. package of cream cheese (wherever) $1.50 max
2 cans of 4 or 5oz. Tuna (wherever) $2 max
1 bunch of fresh cilantro (wherever) $1 max
1 pint of Heavy Whipping Cream (wherever) $3 max
1 container of sour cream (wherever) $2 max
TOTAL $32.78

This grocery list would make 21 single serving meals. I actually don’t think I eat 21 meals a week… I do more like 15 or 16 because there are days where I don’t have time to fit lunch in. So, I may be able to get away with even less spent. I did try to add some variety but if I am hard up, I would probably have no problem eating the same damn thing over and over again if needed. Been there, done that.

Here’s the meal list:

The LCHF Week's menu

The number in parentheses is the number of times I would eat that particular meal in a week. As you can see, I love my Spinach Omelets! 🙂 And I am certainly not opposed to leftovers because I have a wide selection of “sauces” to change things up.

This list also assumes that people have basic necessities and condiments, which I admit you would have to buy at least once every two months, maybe every month depending on your uses:

Coconut Oil (Wal-mart) $6
Louisiana Supreme Chicken Wing Sauce (Dollar Store) $1
30oz. Mayonnaise (wherever on sale) $4 max
Extra Virgin Olive Oil 16oz. (wherever on sale) $6 max
1 pound of Coconut flour (wherever on sale online usually) $4 to $5 max
Dill relish (Dollar store or on sale) $1 max
Garlic Powder (the cheapie container) $1
1 pound of butter (wherever on sale) $3 max
1 jar of salsa (Dollar store or make own) $2 max
1 bottle of low-sodium soy sauce (wherever on sale) $2.72 max
1 small bottle of pure sesame seed oil (wherever I can find it cheap) $3.48 max
Sesame Seeds (I found these in the cheapie section of the Dollar Store – hard to find but a super bargain) $1 to $4 max
TOTAL maybe $40 – depends on what you spend

Most of this stuff will last well beyond a month because you are only using it in small amounts. For example, the coconut flour you will only usually use 2 Tablespoons at a time.  And shopping around really helps to find the cheapest price. I tend to only buy stuff on sale, in season, or on clearance.  The dollar stores or Dollar Tree can be great but don’t count on them keeping favorite items in stock. Bulk buy when you find something you love.

The way I figure it is that I could easily eat healthy for $150 maximum per month on my own. Maybe even less as I haven’t given this oodles of thought yet. I’ve just been messing around with it a little. If I was cooking for a whole family, I could do it cheaper than $150 per person. My 2 year old tends to eat off my plate for breakfast, my husband makes his lunch, and he eats supper at the sitter usually. I sometimes buy “back up” food for nighttime meals if needed. He’s cheap… for now.

Like I said, I am going to try to do this on the regular now because I think it is inevitable that I will eventually lose my job. If I keep it, I will consider it a life bonus but I won’t be counting on it. 😦

Once I get enough chicken bones together, I plan to try making bone broth and replacing one meal a day with that plus butter. The health benefits and cost savings are almost too good to pass up. I am also considering oil pulling to improve gum health and possibly save on future dental bills, which are sure to be numerous.

Anyone have any other ideas for super duper cheap eats? Give me a holler!

PEACE!!!

Not as good as I hoped but still met my modest goal:

27.4 POUNDS GONE!

That is 5 pounds for the month, but get this… 8 inches overall gone in one month! So that’s positive right? I wish it was all in my waistline, but the majority of it was between my neck and my thighs so it all works out eventually, I guess. 🙂

I haven’t really been exercising much but I am starting to walk a bit. And we are getting ready to remodel the living room, so I hope that will burn off some fat. Of course, last year, I redid my entire rental property almost entirely alone until the end and I didn’t lose a damn thing! :/ Since this remodel is more for pleasure than necessity, I am hoping the weight loss will come with it.

Stress continues to make me appear pregnant. I am really having a hard time getting 8 hours of sleep in. In fact, I have not once gotten 8 hours in. I usually log 4-5 hours tops. Once in a blue moon, I will hit 6-7 hours. I have read that this is a major factor in belly weight. I really need to figure out how to make myself sleep longer!

I have tried melatonin 10mg and it really did nothing for me. I am scared to try anything stronger because I need to wake up and be alert pretty quickly. My husband occasionally takes sleep aids to catch up on sleep (he’s a third shifter) and he told me that it often takes him much longer to fully wake up after taking those.

I hear conflicting reports about exercising before bed. Most people say that energizes them and wakes them up. When I have exercised in the past, I am usually dead ass tired after. I thought maybe doing my walks (which I could turn into turtle paced jogs eventually) before bed may exhaust me to the point of being able to fall asleep right away and stay asleep.

I do think I have sleep apnea. However, my deductible on my health insurance is $1000. I don’t have that. So a medically supervised sleep study is absolutely not within reach right now. 😦

So, yeah… that’s about where I am at right now. Nothing exciting to report.

Some people have sent me comments requesting me to regularly post meal plans. I am kind of an irregular type of person so I don’t know about doing it “regularly” but I will try to remember to do it when I post a new menu on my frig. Here’s my current one:

wpid-img_20140504_093801_915-12.jpg.jpeg
Sorry it’s such a horrible picture… I took it with my cell phone. But you get the idea. I have a few “emergency” snacks, which I use VERY sparingly. For example, the Russell Stover Toffee Squares I have maybe one or two squares a week. A full serving is 3. I eat 1/4 C. of pecans maybe once every 2 weeks, if that. I haven’t even had one of the Atkins shakes yet but they are in my frig and have been for a month now. The quesadillas will be limited because the tortilla has 9 gross and 4 net carbs… I am just trying to find a way to get rid of the package at this point…

I have had a lot of traffic on the blog lately so I have had a lot of newcomers ask why their comments don’t show up on my posts. I am pretty active in a couple of online communities and have a mirror post in one of those communities. I don’t spend an enormous amount of time online like I used to. Going through every comment was very tedious at one point. And some of my online friends are high maintenance (cough *nate* cough) so they like to comment. Alot.

All of that to just say… I’m fucking lazy. There it is, folks. I don’t approve posts because I am lazy. But I will try to stop being lazy. I tell you what… I will approve posts that I think are good and relevant (most of you newcomers are fine!). If they are comments touting your new and improved diet plan, your comment is OUT! If you are an EPer and you already made the comment on the mirror blog, I will not reapprove it here… If you are just being a pest and using excessive exclamation points and capital letters (cough *nate* cough), then I will NEVER approve your comment. Period. Because you are annoying. I love you but you’re annoying.

Also, I post about my personal internal struggles here, and people relate to that alot and send me comments detailing their own personal struggles. I probably won’t approve those comments. It’s not that I don’t love hearing from you, because I do. Please do NOT stop doing that! But, I really feel that there are many who give me a very intimate piece of their lives sometimes and I don’t know if you really want that on blast here. If you don’t care, tell me that and I’ll approve it, but otherwise, it will remain between you and me. Pinky promise! 😉

I’ll end my post with a recipe. I have sausage gravy and english muffins on my list above. I love sausage gravy and biscuits! I mean, really… who doesn’t? I’m not real trusting of all those almond flour biscuit recipes because there’s like a shit ton of almonds in one cup of almond flour. So I finally found an acceptable substitute using coconut flour in a Muffin-in-a-minute recipe modified from the recipe by Stacey at beautyandthefoodie.com. Here’s my version:

EngMuff3

Engmuff4
Instructions: Basically, dump it all in a PAM sprayed coffee mug (I just used a standard size mug) and nuke in the microwave for 1 minute. Mine turns out perfect but you may need to adjust the time depending on the power of your microwave. When it’s done, turn the mug upside down on a plate and it usually just slides right on out. I usually let it cool a bit that way. Then, cut in half and pan fry on each side. Perfecto!

My version is not nearly as sweet as other versions. I wanted a more savory muffin. And, although it looks eggy, it did not taste eggy. So don’t be scared! It tastes good! It’s not a real english muffin. It’s more dense. But it was perfect for this recipe. And only 2 NET CARBS!

Now, for the gravy:

sausagegravy1
Instructions:
Brown your crumbled up pork sausage in a regular old skillet over medium to medium high heat. Drain off all but 2 teaspoons of sausage grease (you’ll have to eyeball this, I guess). Once browned, sprinkle in the coconut flour and stir well to coat all the sausage pieces and soaf up some of the grease. Add the 1/2 cup of water and the dash or two of Worcestershire Sauce. Now add the 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream (that’s what 8 tablespoons is…). Heat over medium heat well. Once heated through, sprinkle the Xanthan Gum in 1/4 teaspoon at a time (I ended up using a full teaspoon) until thickened. It will take a minute or two for it to thicken up. I like mine pretty thick. If it gets too thick for you, just add a little water to thin it out a bit. Stir it up well so the fats don’t separate. Load 1/2 of the pan contents onto the awesome 2 slices of pan toasted muffin. Only 3 NET CARBS! MMM HMMMM!

sausagegravy3

So seriously awesome!

Disclosure: This is a high fat, high calorie meal at 701 calories and 63 grams of fat. However, it is what I would consider moderate protein depending on the sausage you use (17 grams total protein) and only 5 NET CARBS! Winner, winner, sausage gravy and biscuit dinner!

PEACE!!!

I know what you’re thinking, but… WRONG SCALE!

My newest “thing” to do is literally weigh everything that goes into my mouth. I have no idea why I am wasting so much of my energy and effort to do this. But I am doing it. :/

taco3

Weird, right? I may need like a Scales Anonymous meeting or something… Damn perfectionist OCDers! ARRRGGHHH!!!!

So, I figured I would post a new recipe. Lettuce wraps have also become a new obsession for me. I actually have some lower carb tortilla wraps from Buena La Vida (4 net carbs). My problem with them is that they taste doughy and the gross carb count is 9 per wrap. That’s too rich for my blood when I am currently trying to keep my gross under 25-30. And I like the quantity that romaine lettuce leaves give me.

So, tonight, after having a lunch of 5 BLT wraps (YUM!), I decided that the ground turkey in my fridge needed to be cooked pronto! What to make, what to make… TACOS! Of course!

Here it is!

Looks awesome, right? I have no idea why people aren’t making taco meat every damn day on Low Carb! If someone had told me how little net carbs are in these spices, I would have been all over that from day one!

Instructions: Brown the ground turkey over medium heat on the stovetop in a regular skillet. You may need to add some fat if it’s extra lean like mine was. I used 1 tsp. of bacon grease leftover from my lunch. I didn’t count it above, though, because I figured most people aren’t as lazy as me people may use different fats than me. Anywhooo… brown the meat. Add the spices. Add maybe 1/2 cup of water. Keep the heat on medium for the stove. Stir it up real well, heat thoroughly, and make sure all the spices are blended into the meat good. Serve in a lettuce wrap! Or whatever your current wrap obsession is… Servings – 8 – 1/3 cup servings approximately.

DISCLOSURE: I should also tell you that this meat is intensely flavorful. I think that’s better when I am using something like lettuce as a wrap. You could probably cut the chili powder and cumin in half and it would still taste just fine. And, you may be able to eliminate the onion powder as well. I only added it because I thought I would not be using onions in the wrap but I did… because I love onions. It’s a flaw, I know… 😛

Here’s the final product:

taco5

Holy freaking YUM, right??? It was sincerely awesome. The whole two wrap meal was 420 calories, 38 grams of protein, 26 grams of fat (this could maybe be higher, but I’m using ground turkey… next time I’ll use beef), 10 grams of carbs with 3 grams of fiber = 7 NET CARBS. That’s with the meat, lettuce, salsa, cheese, onions, and sour cream! I thought about maybe doing a squirt of a chile infused oil of some sort… to up the fat… Or maybe avocado?

If you’d like to see what I’m eating and doing, you can friend me over at myfitnesspal. My name is reneeroling over there and I am a loser with no friends. Maybe because I’m obnoxious, but it still gets lonely. 😦

Tomorrow is weigh in day and I am feeling pretty pissy PMSy so we will see how that goes. This next month, if the weather would just cooperate, I am going to start walking. Which reminds me that I need to go order my stun gun flashlight so people don’t EFF with me… Small town folk, ya know? 😆

PEACE!!!
