Shrink Yo’Self – True Confessions Tuesday

I was asked to talk about the positive things I did this week, but I feel need to talk about what I know I have slacked on and want to own up to it.

First off I have missed blogging on the past 2 True Confessions. Go figure my days getting away from me and the next thing I know it is Wednesday, or Thursday. Who the hell knows what I am doing, but it is obviously something and not blogging like I should be.

Second, I was a bad, bad girl this week. I haven’t been drinking alcohol very much and this week I had a craving for Guinness BAD. This past Wednesday I had 1.  Friday I had 4.  Saturday I went to a birthday dinner and party and didn’t drink beer, but did have plenty of other things.  Sunday I drank 2 Snake Bites. Half Guinness and half Cider.  Last night I had one too.  Today I will have nothing, but water and the same for the rest of the week.  Well, at least I will try as of this moment.  Can you imagine what those calories did to me? I counted most of them, logged them, then by the time Saturday came around I didn’t log for the birthday party. Ug. Yep.  I was up 1.4 at my weigh-in on Sunday. Such an idiot!  My scale and the WW scale are never the same.  This morning my scale said 176.  BAD!!!  I am working hard to get back down by this next Sunday.  I want the 1.4 gone, plus a little more.  It is such a pity how fast it comes back on and how slowly it is to get it off.  Just sucks really!  I wasn’t even really that bad with my eating except for Sunday. Oh well. I own it.  Time to move on!

Starting Weight:  185

Highest Weight:  189

Weight Today:  176.0

Total WW Loss:  9.0

Total Loss Overall: 13.0

To Goal:  41.0

On a good note I have two of my Boys that started Tutoring this past week and it is going fantastic.  They come home with happy faces. Their self-esteem and reading/writing are moving forward. The Wilkins Learning Center in Gilbert has the most amazing people ever!

I finally hired a new housekeeper and she starts tomorrow. With a crew of 5 others!  How fantastic is that!  I haven’t had anyone helping me with the house for over a year. I know this may sound petty, but for me it is a life saver.  I have gone though a pretty hard year and a half personally and just the little things like this make me feel so much better.  I am a bit ashamed about the way my house looks now, others would disagree, but this is a step in the right direction for myself. A clean house makes for a happy Kathleen.

I started yesterday off by going on the treadmill not once, but twice, throughout my day.  I was in a weird bored mood and it really helped.  I can’t wait to get back on it today!

Today I am starting the 100 Push-ups program.  I have tried it before, but never finished. I have a good friend that started a few days ago, so I am going to try to catch up to her. I find that having someone to do something with really, really helps. Wish me luck!  Push-up can be damn hard.  LOL!

Today I am cooking Miso Soup for my Boys.  They love it when I make it for them. Pretty healthy and low points too. I am also going to make a vegetable soup today for the crock pot to have for whenever we want a snack. My oldest especially loves soup.  Soup and salad, how can you go wrong!

I closed down my Mom’s Making Time for Mom’s MeetUp group this past Sunday. It was time.  I have had it going since, well, I can’t remember… either February 2008, or 2009.  I just feel like it was the right time and the right thing to do.  I am going to look into maybe joining some other groups on my own and take it from there.  Life is an adventure right?!

I am going to be doing the Color Run here in Tempe this weekend with my family and a friend.  I can’t wait!  It just looks so fun and exciting for us all and such a great cause!

I also signed my Husband and I up for the Skirt Chaser 5k. Looks like a blast as well. I joined with a few friends and also found out at the birthday dinner I was at the other night that a bunch of those girls will be there too. Woo hoo!  Something fun and healthy to look forward too.  🙂

  1. skipping over all the food/beer/weight talk – can i just tell you how jealous i am that you have a house keeper?? i’d love to be able to lighten my load. its just talking the hubby into forking over the $$$ for it.

  2. I will tell you Brooke… it really makes a huge difference. I don’t care if it is once a month, or once a day. It is worth it. I’m not one to have a housekeeper that just throws all the stuff in a pile and then cleans around it, so I usually hire someone to come 3 or 4 times a week for 3 hours a day and just treat the house like it is their own. Tidy, clean, laundry, etc. Unfortunately, not any more. I am going to go the every other week route for a while and am perfectly happy with that. $120 every 2 weeks or someone that will come in for $10 an hour is GREAT! 🙂
