This and that Tuesday

I am feeling very random today, so this post may seem all over the place. That's how I roll.

I have an appointment at my band doctor this Friday. Although it's not quite a year yet they want to go ahead and do all of my bloodwork. I was flirting with the idea of asking for a fill. I have only ever had 2 fills. I was sitting here saying to myself "Self, why are you not losing weight any more?? Could it be that you are able to eat way too much and you could possibly need a fill??"

Just after that conversation with myself I read Lap Band Gal's post today. She included this link. I had a bit of an ah-ha moment. Then I turned and looked right beside me at this...

Well helloooooo.....this is why your fatass isn't losing weight. Yes, that is a Baskin Robbins spoon you see on that table along with the bag of doritos and Peanut Butter M&M's.

I have been eating simply because I could. I stopped logging food and I stopped measuring. Co-winky-dink that this happened at the same time I stopped losing weight???? Um, I think not.

So, now I am not too sure I need a fill at all. I think I just need to get back to doing what was working.

The Rockstar and I are both on fall break this week. He is in the recording studio with his band all week. Part of me is happy to be home alone so I can actually clean the house properly. The other part of me gets pissy because I am here cleaning it by myself.

I am doing a closet purge tomorrow. I have a shit ton of stuff to get rid of. My friend is coming over to go through the stuff because her sister's house just burned to the ground and she is about the size of the stuff I am getting rid of.

Crap....The Boy just yelled at me from upstairs and asked me to go on a "date" with him tonight. He wants to take me to "Crack"er Barrel. Doesn't he know that I JUST said I am going to stop eating a bunch of crap??? I can't go to Cracker Barrel and not have a yummy biscuit or corn muffin. What to do....what to do????

Don't do it.
Yes, do it.
No, you will regret it.
But The Boy wants to take you on a date, you can't say no to him. Do it.
That's a load of shit. The Boy just wants you to go so you will pay. Don't it.
Oh dont say that about my sweet boy. He loves his mama. Do it.

Please excuse the random voices talking out loud on my blog.

Harleigh got her first haircut today!!! She was NOT a good girl and strangely I think from now on when I call to make her an appointment they may say they are already booked up. She may be a brat, but she's a cute brat :)

Harleigh looks like an angel.. which means she is hell on paws. ;)

I have been fighting my snack demons as well.

the snacks are killing me as well!!
I do love how you talk to yourself though..
maybe you do need a fill? maybe you aren't satisfied long enough between meals?

I totally get it about wanting the house empty to clean but being cranky you are doing it alone.

I loved that post by LBG! Hit the spot for me too. Your baby is sooooo cute. Just want to give her a big cyber hug!

Didn't you just LOVE that article!? I was blown away and quite frankly, I don't know why my surgeon's office or nutritionist isn't telling me this. That pup is smooshable!

So did you go? :) I love Cracker Barrel, so I hear you!!!

Good luck at your one year appointment, and yup, I think it's good for all of us to get back to basics every now and then!

dang if harleigh is not the cutest dog! Its hard to turn down time with your kids. I wonder what you did? Snacking can kill me, I really have to control that and make sure I am staying full for 3-4 hours after meals...otherwise a fill is in order I have to say after the last fill I don't feel the need to snack as much in fact food just seems like a need to keep me going not an event. Love you girl!

LOL -- love the dialog! Yes -- back to basics! That was a scary pile o' snacks (not that I haven't been there too).

On the Cracker Barrel front -- try a trick I used a lot in my first 2 years... When you finish lunch (and are full), pull up their menu on-line and decide what you're going to eat. Make a choice that you're going to feel good about afterwards.

Then, when you get there, DON'T LOOK AT THE MENU, and just order what you planned to get. Works like a charm. Yes, you can have a bite or two of whatever The Boy orders. ;)

Well since Catherine was so humorous, I'm going to ask if you are still carrying around that little snack bag I saw you with in Chicago!

Ok, ok, I know that was wrong so please dont' stop following me! lol

And even though I was never fond of poodles(I know you are dying now), Harleigh is a cutie.

Roomie(that's my new name)

So, did you go to Cracker Barrel?? I hope you did. I love that he wanted to go out with you. :-)
