Passive Aggressive Much?

Seriously I should check my email more, or blog every day, because I miss things while I do this life thing.

Quite honestly I think this is funny, I get hate mail for commenting on someone else's blog. (OH YEAH MY FIRST HATE MAIL! I feel like a real blogger now. Should I monetize this bitch?) And I'm a bully. But at least I'm a bully that lost 177 pounds, bitches!  (Sorry, that was supposed to be in my head.)

Any questions you have you can just ask me! :) Let's do a little math here since you obviously need help with it. 

If I started at 278 and now weigh 229 that would be 20.5 pounds RIGHT! ;) If you read the story and stop following along with someone who  know's nothing. Actually read the page, you would see that I started over in Jan of this year at 257 and now weigh 229.5. Wait that's 20.5 lost right?! lol You people are amusing! Do you not have anything better to do than bash on people you don't know or intend to know? I am doing just fine with my weight loss at the rate I am going with it. But thanks for your advice! Your so very supportive God must have a special plan for your sweetness! :) Now you have a wonderful day doll! Go share this with your bully friends!

Weigh Ins:
5/2/07: 247 
5/24/13: 226.5

From May of 07 until May of 13, baby girl you've had a net loss of 20.5 pounds.  That's 6 years and 20 pounds. Do whatever fancy math you want, I'm taking that off your progress page.

Not only that, I don't recall giving you any advice - I recall commenting on Al's blog. But evidently you read his blog for advice? That's kinda funny.

By the way...
1.   A person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.
2.   Corned beef

I am neither, unfortunately. I may taste as good as corned beef, but I am not actual corned beef. Unless me laying it out there in black and white on Al's blog happened to intimidate you. Then I actually think that's your personal problem, as you feel bad for losing 20 pounds in 6 years. 

Annnd...since we threw God into that obvious weird passive hate-filled email (which to me screams hypocrite but then again I'm obviously not the best Christian, apparently I curse and am a bully):

The Bible admonishes us to not be oversensitive: “Do not take to heart everything people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. For many times, also, your own heart has known that even you have cursed others” (Ecclesiastes 7:21-22).

Whether it's religion or weight loss, it always cracks me up when those who blow their horn the loudest usually know the least about the subject at hand.

Weigh-In 5/20/13

Previous: 165.6
Current:   165.2
Loss:           -0.4

Work has been kicking my rear since I got back from vacation, surprise! However I did manage to go on vacation and lose weight, that says something.

Anyone ever heard/read of Tim Ferriss? 4 Hour Body? I'll write something more detailed later, but I'm testing out his 30 grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking method.

I did not realize how hard it would be to reach 30 grams of protein with reasonable (IE: under 300 calories) calorie restriction.

Day #(I don't remember)

**Quick question** I am thinking about doing 2 5K races in one day - a mud run in the morning, a glow run at night. Is there anything inherently bad about that decision?

Onto the food - broken record, here!

Although I am going to switch it up for lunch. I know, I'm a wild child.

Did I mention, VACATION TOMORROW?! I am a bit excited. I probably will not post until I get back, mostly because my Blogger app is a piece of crap. I will try to comment, but I really don't know how cell service will be either. Long story short - be safe and I'll talk to you when I get back!

I eat the same stuff everyday.

If this food picture thing has taught me anything, it's that I eat pretty much the same damn thing everyday. I'm really starting to think that's the secret to success, albeit boring.

See? Same stuff. And just FYI - it's a Mexicobb salad from Chuy's restaurant. It *is* fabulous. The only thing I leave off is the cheese, and I pick salsa for a salad dressing.

Weigh In 5/6/2013 & The Pics!

Previous: 165.9
Current:   165.6
Loss:           -0.3

So I failed. I emailed the pictures from my phone to my email as I was leaving the house this morning, deleted the file and realized I left the house so quick that it bounced off my wifi onto the cell signal and, well - poof goes the pictures. Not like I ate a lot this weekend, Saturday morning I had oatmeal (naw, really!) and then I didn't eat again until that night when I had a bowl of linguini with marinara (it was my 4 year old's B-day and I was running around like a chicken with it's head cut off... but no cupcakes for this gal!). Then Sunday I had oatmeal - again, go figure - and 2 veggie sushi rolls, a bowl of cereal.

Today, it's back to the grind, and - amazing! oatmeal for breakfast. Updates as I go along. (Although this will be my last day *sniff* since I did fail - but keep on at it, guys!)

Breakfast: (250 calories)

Snack: (60 calories)

Lunch: (300 calories)

Snack: (100 calories)

Dinner: (300 calories)
Total: 1010 - I just really wasn't feelin' eating today. :(

Day #2

Breakfast: (250 calories, creature of habit)
1 package oatmeal
1 tsp dark chocolate chips
1 tsp peanut butter
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Snack: (100 calories)
Self explanatory, lol
Lunch: (270 calories)

Crap-ton of veggies

Side Rant:

When you get on a healthy food schedule, and keep to that food schedule, a miraculous thing happens - (or at least it did for me) your body gets on a schedule.

For example (warning - possible TMI) since I have lost weight, my period is on a normal schedule. 25 days after the start of my last period, I start again. Now, while I'd prefer it to push the 28 day mark, I am VERY happy in that I can plan exactly when I am going to start. And I do, every time. It starts the same time, it lasts as long as it did last time, and I feel tons better during (no cramps, etc.) I was up .5 pounds this morning, and I knew why. Welcome to 25 days later.

Now - on the flip side - you realize quickly when you do stupid things. Case in point: I'm at Walmart the other day, perusing the aisles, and I come upon this-

Now you may be asking in your head, "Hey Rae, you've lost 175 pounds, why in this world would you feel the need to pick up weight loss tea? You obviously know how to lose weight." And the answer is - you're right, I have no idea, most likely because I'm fucked up in the head. Anyway, I buy this shit a few days ago, and have been drinking a cup a day.

BAD IDEA. Just so you know - for the first time IN OVER A YEAR (and that was because I picked up a virus for god's sake) - it had me running to the bathroom EVERY SINGLE DAY. It didn't happen concurrently (meaning I didn't drink the tea and immediately run to the bathroom - it took a few hours), so the slow me took a few days to put together - but I didn't have the tea today and miraculously (duh) I'm back to normal.

Moral of the story: listen to your body and don't do stupid things. But at least because I now have this nice symbiotic relationship with my body - I can spot and manage things easier now.

Dinner: (450 calories)
Mexi-cobb salad, no cheese, salsa dressing
Diet Pepsi! (a treat!)
Dessert: (80 calories)
1 scoop Lemon Ice from Culvers (delish!)
Total calories: 1280! Done!
