Salt Addiction

I have been having an argument with myself. Over my worst habit at the moment. I can't seem to live without...

I have tried to go without it, but it seems impossible. I don't feel like a salt-a-holic, but I do believe if I had to take one item with me to a deserted Island I think I might take salt. I beginning to see that it may be my choice of "drug." My next question is how do I undo this without having a break down. What other alternatives are there? Healthy ones... I already know the best one is to avoid salt like the plague, but there has to be a way to get to that point. I just want the will power to stop putting salt on my food.

I have
            days to go.
5lb. goal still in progress.

Count Down

I'm giving it all she's got captain!

No not really.

Intimidated on this day.

It seems that everyone and anyone is on some shake or program for losing weight and I'm twiddling my thumbs. They are so excited and pumped up and I feel blank. I know it doesn't make sense, but that's just the way I feel today.

My count down has begun... 5 lbs. in 18 days. Let's get ready to rumble!
I'm so old school, it's kinda scary...

Feeling Discouraged


Last week, was a long hard week. Worked late. Felt out of sync with everything, especially myself. Not prepared. I definitely put myself at the last of the list and I never got to me.

Today I am exhausted. I need some major sleep. I'm feeling overwhelmed and I can't pinpoint the culprit.

Irritated and moody. I want to feel good, how does one crazy week ruin good work? I could just yell!

I've set myself a goal for the rest of May. There is 18 days left as of tomorrow. I have given myself the goal of losing 5 lbs. I know what you're thinking..

"5 lbs. that's easy."

My response: "Not for a girl who is taking medicine for her thyroid. My metabolism is on vacation."

Which really sucks. If you're young or healthy right now, this is my advice. Take advantage of being young, you can lose weight faster. If you don't have anything wrong with you; you are not taking any medications, you can lose weight faster.

If you are on the same boat like me... then grab a life jacket and let's stay afloat.

Working harder and proving everyone around me wrong... that's my point.

18 days... it can be done. 5 lbs. it's a goal; a point that I HAVE to prove to myself.

I'll spare you a selfie. I'm not photogenic. Say Cheese!

Down 3


Did you read that? The bathroom scale moved down! I can even taken it further, 3 lbs. down.

3 lbs. D

I haven't been down 3 lbs. in what seems in my world FOREVER AGO. I struggle to keep my mind at ease when I don't see the scale move down or freak out when it heads up.

I don't know what has done it. The green tea? The eating breakfast? The cutting back on fast food? The cooking at home? Taking my lunch 2 days last week to work?

How about... all of the above?

I don't know what is the difference. I do know I just want to keep going strong. Failure or fear keep on moving... it's been here far too long. I'm ready for a new add-on's like confidence and determination.

I looked silly today, I laughed and whooped for joy! Whooped for joy.... yes I did that. Is it possible? Just ask my kiddo, she awoke and looked at me strangely, but then she got me doing some crazy dance called "The Nae Nae." Makes me feel like I'm a drunkin' beauty queen waving...

This quote is fitting for today...

Black Sheep?

I took my lunch Monday and Tuesday. I have to admit. I felt a little left out when the other ladies were eating differently. Like the black sheep of the family. Someone made a comment, that they smelled onion. Onion is not liked by some ladies at work, but I personally LOVE sautéed onion. I've come a long way. I couldn't stand it when I was younger. I love them, but they'll have to get over the onion smell. Enough said.

Honestly I actually felt that I had the best lunch. I had energy when I was done and didn't feel sluggish. My friends were complaining how tired they had become or they needed chocolate, but I didn't feel like that. I was ready for round two.

Next week I am going to plan a little better. Either make extra for dinner or make more lunches that will last a full week. I still don't have it all figured out yet, but I have to say 2 lunches made from home is nice on my energy level and on my wallet!

Nicely said.
