Time to be accountable

I didn't do well with my food all weekend long and as a result I'm 205.5! It's all my fault, I have no one else to blame for this weight. I still haven't been exercising like I know I should be ... MIL is really interfering with this part of my life but this morning as I saw those numbers looking back at me it hit me ... in the end it's me who is responsible for getting/no getting my cardio in. I can't always blame the MIL for knocking on my door when I'm in the middle of a workout. I can go on a walk outdoors where she won't be around me or just refuse to answer the bedroom door. I can also workout in the living room while she is out of the house. This doesn't happen enough to make me happy but it is something. Maybe I'll make a cute sign for the door that says do not disturb me while door is closed. he he he

So my plan today is to get in a 30+ walk while MIL is at the seinor center. I took a appitie supressor this morning plus my fiber pills ... hoping I won't be as hungry. I have tons of fresh fruits & veggies to help me stay on track & water is going to be a priority today. I haven't been doing horrible with the water but I know my body requires more then 8 cups. I know this cause I wake up every night feeling parched & it seems like I have sand in my mouth. If I drink 10+ cups of water in a day I don't have this problem.


  1. You can do it girl .
    lol I want a sign like that ..

  2. Emmi, Emmi, Emmi...don't do this to yourself. I think of you and the group every time I am tested by something wonderful I should not eat. Do I want to tell you all that I gained weight- not on your life so I make the air popped corn or grab the no fat yogurt, or apple and enjoy it.  I pretend the thin chicks will do something terrible to me if I am really bad! (Christina with a whip ha ha). Get going you will make it! Dannelle  Thin Chicks Rule!

  3. Awwwwwww Emmi, go ahead and make that sign hon, I do'nt know how you stand having MIL bothering you all the time, Love You Lisa XO

  4. I like the idea of the sign. LoL Glad to see that you are on track, and with a new attitude. I had a major back step last week but am back on track, stronger than ever this week. I hope you have a fantasic week this, and reach your goals.

    Best Wishes,

  5. Hey girl... You know what you have to do and I bet part of you is allowing the MIL to interfere, but when that scale gave you the evil eye today, I am sure you had enough.  You know what you have to do and have some good ideas about not answering the door (just tell her you are going to exercise and will NOT be answering the door unless the house is on fire).lol.  Come on girl... YOU CAN DO THIS!!!  Onederland is right there... come on over!!
