Monday AGAIN already


Monday...AGAIN...how did you get here so quickly? Oh yea that's right i spent most of yesterday in a Benadryl coma :( darn allergies!

Well for a quick recap of last week for me (Misty)..The week itself went pretty good, particularly the second half of it, now the weekend..not so much, but today is a new day to try again right! Last week the first few days i did ok mostly just trying to be mindful of what was going in my mouth but that's about it. Wednesday i found a great water bottle i love, holds 32oz and has a thingie in it to keep your water cool longer(who couldn't like that). This really helps me get my water in. I can think ok just 3 of these and i'm done! Also for whatever reason it seems like i drink more with a straw.

After this the next couple days i did good until the weekend hit and it all went down hill from there. Saturday I spent most of my day a lump on the couch reading my new book(in my defense it's really really good lol). Then about 3pm i said heck with this i need to get moving so i put on my purdy new shoes and went for a walk down the dirt road across from my house, to the barn to see the horsies and feed them an apple. I also decided that until i get used to not being such a lump on said couch that every morning when i get up i will put shoe's on...not flip flops, even though it is summer, but shoes...ACTUAL SHOE'S, so that it will not be as easy a task being said lump! ;-p

Sunday was even worse than Saturday because i didn't feel good at all, I think my body knows fall is approaching and wants to rebel early. Thanks to my allergies i succumbed to the temptation to take some benadryl, therefor spending most of my day in and out of what i like to call a benadryl coma. That darn stuff kicks my butt every time :(

Also this weekend thanks to Jen, at Prior Fat Girl, Heidi and I both discovered and lovee a recipe she shared called Taco chicken that is super yummy!

OK..On to a new week! Starting weight 193.8, Fasting BG 177(darn late night snack)...Goal for the week drink water, increase steps per day to 10,000!
