DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 04 December 2012

To record or not to record. That was the question I asked myself this morning. I didn't record last week because I gave into Thanksgiving. I didn't record yesterday because I had 20 minutes to shower and get myself and little man ready. And honestly.. weighing in never crossed my mind until I was about 10 miles down the road. I didn't want to record this morning because that time of the month is here. Excuse, excuse, excuse.

So... I'm recording. This is going to be my big giant STOP button. Stop skipping breakfast then pigging out on junk because I'm too tired to get up any earlier to make breakfast. Stop getting whatever has the shortest line at the caffeteria because I have to rush back to my desk because I'm so swamped at work I'm afraid my desk is about to collapse. Stop stealing spoonfuls of my daughter's ice cream. Stop stealing a cookie on the way to the barn because it's there and I'm hungry and dinner is still 2 hours away. Stop drinking tons of coffee and soda because it's easier than water. Stop filling in the exhaustion with sugar and caffine. Stop stop stop stop stop. If I could I would kick myself in the butt but.. I'm not that flexible. Yet.

Today I got up a half hour earlier despite little man getting up every 2 hours. Thank you growth spurt. I ate a decent breakfast in the caffeteria and paid the $3.50. I will go out and get a salad for lunch after an adventure at the DMV. I will not let the DMV throw me into a stress induced cocoa binge. I'm going to lose weight, gain muscle, and kick some serious butt. Even if that butt is my own. Someday... I will grab my own butt and think wow.. that's firm! Someday.. I will marvel at the fact that I can see my own feet even in heels. Someday.. I will be flexible enough to kick my own butt. Someday.. I will spend 5 minutes a day in front of the mirror thinking.. I'm sexy instead of wondering how long the fat will jiggle if I jump. Someday I will think my hubby is a lucky man because I cook, clean, work, do barn chores, take care of the kids, haven't snapped yet AND because I have a body that doesn't jiggle. Well.. ok.. it jiggles but only in places where it's supposed to.

:) It's amazing how much a butt can jiggle, even if it's not the huge bootylicious J-Lo-Kardashian type. I have a very un-firm pancake bottom.

They say squats are suppose to firm it. Hubby has buns of steel from milking cows. My butt? Jiggles like a bowl of jello. They lied.

Our busiest woman on FS! DH use to say he could bounce a quarter off my a$$ but since losing 50 lbs I can hid the quarter under the droop. I'm hoping walking, squats & bridges and losing another 50 lbs. will do the trick. I'm so proud of you for sticking with this. Let's kick butt!

How to deal with cocoa binge. I use as a meal replacement. 1 scoop chocolate protein powder, 2 Tbsp. Special dark cocoa powder, 2 Tbsp. Peanut butter, 1/2 cup milk, and i use like 9 ice cubes.

My hubby has buns of steel too. . . how?!? and why? I want them and have to work my butt off (literally) to get them.

Good for you in recording! They say stating the problem is the first step in solving it.

The squats didn't do "squat" for my jiggly butt either!! I think it's all a scam! Heading to the DMV on Taft? If you can take an early or late lunch... you don't want to be there at noon if you don't have to!

Squats are awesome. You just need a good spotter to ensure your form is spot on bwahahahaha And don't forget the calf raises! >=)

Thanks for the DMV tip. I was going to go at 12.. now I think I will go at 1. Then if the stress is too much I can just head home after and claim I had a mental breakdown.

I have buns of steel from about a gazillion squats; with jiggly stuff hanging off. Sigh. At least it looks fine shaking it in Zumba clothes.
