DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 20 December 2012

I think I'm going to start my own challenge. I keep getting challenge invites and honestly half the challenges either don't seem realistic to me or the goals in the challenge are things that I just won't do. Like drinking water. I drink water every day. I drink when I'm thirsty. I'm not going to challenge myself to drink 3 gallons of water a day. Yes.. I actually saw a challenge that wanted me to drink 3 gallons of water. If I do this I will spend 75% of my day in the bathroom peeing. I really liked the challenge that wanted me to lose 5 lbs a week. If I could lose 5 lbs a week I would have been at my goal weight already. How do they expect you to lose 5 lbs a week when you're drinking 3 gallons of water?! Maybe you don't have room to eat when you drink that much. Or maybe its the exercise running to the bathroom. I'm not sure. I do know I'm not doing it. If I drink and sneeze it will be a disaster waiting to happen.

So... I'm allowing myself one more disaster day then I will work towards behaving and setting new goals for the new year. I don't have to work tomorrow so I won't be subjected to treats, cookies, and the pint of ben and jerry's ice cream I plan on devouring tonight. Yup.. that's my plan. Eat junk, panic, and scare myself straight when I see the damage on the scale tomorrow. At least I can say no one has ever accused me of being sane.

Awww, I have to work... no fair!! Yeah today has been rough and my cals were good but I know I'll get into the bottle of wine or vodka. Maybe I'll wait till tomorrow... or both. Either way it's not going to be pretty!

There is enough insanity to go around. Lets have an insanity challenge!

Insanity - No sh**. We have so many goodies at work that the goodies have goodies. Half of my bureau are in our Biggest Loser work contest so everyone is trying to be good - including me drinking water and peeing all day. LOL But no one is eating all the goodies - so they just keep piling up into mounds. Someone is going to crack and we will find them in the pile - like they found the Mayor in the movie "Chocolat" with the chocolate covering his whole face and body. I'm working tomorrow too and Monday. No one will be here probably except me and the mound of goodies. Oh no. I'm going to be like the Mayor.

Today in the office I am sitting next to what is called a "popcorn cake". It is like an enormous rice krispy treat made with popcorn instead and infused with red M&Ms, green peanut M&M's, some kind of gummy candy, and in the shape of a Christmas tree. God help me! I think my arteries hardened just looking at it.

Popcorn Cake? And I thought I had too much time on my hands.....

Yep, there is more than enough insanity! I've been so immersed in my cookie baking that I finally ran out of energy to fix good food & did the Mayor thing, luckily I didn't end up in the window smeared in chocolate! I pee enough just drinking 3 20 ounce bottles of water; 3 gallons sounds like torture (unheallthy, too)! Hmm, not even Cherry Garcia sounds good after all the rich cookies I ate today. I'm thinking tomorrow will be a healthy eating day.

I drink anywhere from 175 ounces to 300 ounces of water everyday. I just feel thirsty all the time if i don't . Yes i pee like a pregnant women too. I even wake up once or twice in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. But i Never have dry skin anymore. And i don't force myself to drink that much, I just do. P.S. when i come across foods i want i ask myself which would i like piece of food. Food always loses. :(

I've seen the popcorn cake. I actually pinned it on pinterest. Prob will never make it though haha. And yeah - most of those challenges are so unrealistic and usually 1/4 of the people even go through with it.

I drink so much water that I count sitting down on the toliet as part of my squats for the day!

I saw the popcorncake in Family Fun magazine years ago. Made it once for a kids party for the kids that didn't like the requested chocolate cake. No gummy's though, just m&ms in a bunt pan.

make a challenge that is fun and doable and will provide results!

Only 39 out of 88 people that started the Don't wait for New Years To Become A New You are currently participating at all. It started 19 days ago. So not only do some have unrealistic expectations but only half follow through with participating. I would love to see some good challenges because there is no way when I am 15 pounds from goal weight that I can loose 5 pounds a week.... Unless I didn't eat or cut off a limb. Lol! That is why I created the Spring Into Action one too. Not too often does a realistic one come along. So I personally would love if you created a challenge and sent an invite.

I'd love to see what you come up with for a challenge. With your quirky ways it should be interesting.

Happy New Year! I plan to take the remaining candy at my house to work tomorrow and put it in the kitchen (which is far from my office), It'll disappear in a hurry and won't be at home to tempt me anymore. I can't get away with taking the cookies my daughters made, but (other than the first day or two after they were made) I've been able to resist them - and my daughters are eating them slowly. A new beginning in 2013!
