Plan of Action

I've been really slacking off on my cardio & food plan for 5 weeks straight now. Actually it's been longer then that but I know for sure 5 weeks cause that's how long MIL has been living with us ... that's how long I have used the excuse of I can't exercise in front of her. Nevermind that I have a bedroom that I can go to ... if she messes with me again I can always play dumb & say I was so into the workout that I didn't hear her. he he he

Last week I weighed in & had almost a 10 pound gain. I can't let my weight get anymore out of control then it already is. Last night was the last straw for me. At 7pm I sat down to watch tv with a HUGE slice of chocolate cheesecake & a tall glass of milk. I ate it all ... I was so miserable afterward that. I felt sick to my stomack ... I finally had to take meds at 11 to keep from feeling so sick. This morning I woke up still feeling ill so I said there's no day like the present to get my fat behind back on track.

My official weigh in will be tomorrow since all my ladies at ThinChicks weigh in on Fridays. Food for the day is a little on the low side however, considering how I have eaten for the last 5+ weeks ... I don't think a day or two of low calories will hurt me any.

  1. I have worried about this since you have not been writing a lot here. I know theMIL thing is not good. No need to make excuses about it because it is a fact that it is a source of frustration. How to deal with it is another. (I say, kick her out! lol) I feel like I was a little spy before I joined the chicks, now I don't care about the group as much as I do the individuals. Emmi dear put on a video  (loudly) and shake some booty! Find a spot where you can't be heard and scream! (I used to do this when my sister in law visited). Make some tags that reflect humor in the situtation- whatever! You follow your plan in spite of MIL- don't you want to outlast and outwit her? YOU are a SURVIVOR! Love, Dannelle Wish I were your MIL!

  2. Woo Hoo... Emmi you are on the right track.  Glad you are back!!!
    ***Now get your fat ass in your locked bedroom with the music turned up and pay no attention to the crazy lady, banging on the door asking stupid ass questions!!! LMAO

  3. Awwww Emmi, Wish you could be my cardio partner, Love Ya Lisa

  4. Glad to hear that you're back on track. I know that you can achieve your goals.

    Best Wishes,

    P.S. Where did you get that food tracker showing your calories, fibers, and things.

  5. Come on Emmi, you can do this.  We all fall off the wagon, you've accomplished the first step by climbing back on.  I agree with Evil, but she says it so much better!!!


  6. The hard part is first acknowleding the problem the second step is getting back on plan you can do it girl we are here for you
