Yesterday I fell off the wagon for 6.4 minutes. Then I got back on.. because I went to sleep. But I have been on the wagon all day today so yay me! 1 chocolate chip cookie and 6 caramel creams did not destroy me. As a matter of fact I only went 350 calories over 1600 and the scale said I lost a half a pound since yesterday. So.. back on the wagon we go and craving gone. I think I figured out where I went wrong though.. this is way too much FYI but after almost 2 years of not having to deal with any female crap. I lost 5 lbs and viola!! welcome back to the club. Son of a chocolate chip cookie! It could also be because peanut now has 3 teeth total and I have introduced him to his very good friend.. the cow. I am not a food source anymore! Yay! *sniffle* My baby is going to be 1 yrs old at the end of the month so well.. it's time. *sniffle* I will miss my 500 extra calorie burn from simply sitting on my butt. *sniffle* The funny thing is going low carb and slowing down in the nursing dept has sped up my weight loss. Who would have thunk.

Tonight I have to clean the house like a crazy woman. Tomorrow the mother and the preteen are returning and then it will be all things fair and parades and someone give me the strength to not eat my weight in fair food. Also good is there is a ton of hay down so if I do eat anything I shouldn't I can burn it off tossing around 40 lb haybales, while chasing a baby and a toddler, and claiming my house is never this dirty to my mother when it will be the cleanest it has been in forever.. because I have a toddler and a baby and 2 massive dogs and oh we live on a farm where the boys play and then leave a ring around the tub every night. Because.. well leaving a ring around the tub every nights means I'm doing something right as a mother in my opinion. It also means my kids didn't sit in front of the tv... which means I wasn't sitting in front of the tv.. and hopefully that will show up on the scale. :)

I wonder if it's possible to put used dryer sheets or something on nerf bullets.. then I could convince little man to shoot down all the cobwebs while his baby brother speed crab crawls to get the bullets before anyone can tell him no and takes them...

The Carbage Cleanse is working. Down 5.1 as of today. Woohoo! I'm suspicious weight loss will slow from this point on but right now I don't care. I've gotten rid of 5 lbs. That's like 1/12th of my goal. 8 more lbs to go and I will buy myself the shoes I picked out and drooled over. It was my motivation to stay out of the 25 lbs of candy that is currently on my kitchen table. Yes.. 25 lbs.. of candy. All sorts of candy.. Little man already declared himself king of the candy and sat on it.

Why would I put 25 lbs of candy on my table? Because then I can say. Look honey I lost one giant bag of tootsie rolls worth of weight. That's 700 tootsie rolls! I lost 700 tootsie rolls from somewhere.. I just don't know where. Ok I didn't do that. We're still having the silent battle of the non existing weightloss/diet. I'm not dieting.. he's not dieting.. we're just silently losing weight together. lol But.. I silently lost 700 tootsie rolls worth of weight. Oh yeah that and the farm is in the parade this Saturday. I will work out my candy craving agressions by tossing candy at people.

I was all proud of myself though.. 25 lbs of tootsie rolls, cow tails, creams, caramels, etc. I wasn't even tempted. I still thought twice about the stale cookies in the cookie jar because everyone is on a silent diet and unwilling to eat them but.. I didn't think twice about the candy.. except when I did little shimmy shakes in the kitchen chanting I lost 700 tootsie rolls.. woohoo.. Then little man would declare he wanted cow. Because candy.. is cow. Yes I have seriously messed up my child. It's too funny watching people's expressions when we're in the store and he declares he wants cow.. then runs for the candy. I'm not fixing this misunderstanding.. it's too entertaining. Plus.. the candy in the house is in a cow cookie jar.. because we live on a diary farm so of course all home decorating must equal cow.. which it really doesn't.. I need more cow stuff. And burlap curtains. I've always wanted burlap curtains. Yes. I'm strange. We've established this. BUT! I'm 700 tootsie rolls less weird. :)

I don't want to jinx myself but I seem to have found my seat on the wagon. 6 days in and I'm still on the darn thing. Not only that thanks to kids, rain, running with kids through the rain, and herding children saying dad, dad, dad, dad, look, dad, dad, dad, turn while dad was fixing the tires on a bleepity bleepity son of a freakin dump trailer... his words interpreted... I didn't even max out my calories yesterday. I came in somewhere around 1400 instead of 1600 but I was too busy and well not hungry to care about filling my quota for the day. Not being hungry and not filling the daily alloted calories.. because um they're there and I should take advantage of them just because? Success! Although.. not eating right before bed gave me a strange dream about a man hunt and hubby telling me he wanted out of our relationship because I couldn't open the cheese. Don't worry. I promptly questioned him why?!?! upon waking and now he has certified proof his sobbing wife is absofreakinlootly nuts. I'm a fun kinda nuts though... at least he knows I care?

I'm also excited to weigh in tomorrow. Weird right? I know there is the initial swoop that comes with lowering carbs. It's a very nice swoop though. I've weighed myself every day just to track with my food and I have a swoop. I loooooooove swoops. And to the person that said I should not reward myself based on accomplishments .. um.. don't read this... I have decided I am celebrating my acheivement.. when I get to 175 with a new pair of skechers... see? not rewarding. celebrating. Plus they look like a dress shoe I can wear to work but they aren't.. their a bike shoe. Because why not? Plus I'm not saying I deserve that twinkie because I worked so hard. I'm saying I should get a cute new pair of shoes because I walked a tiny portion of my butt off. The shoes will allow me to walk additional tiny portions of my butt off with cute shoes that have not seen the inside of the barn. You'd be surprised at the number of shoes I have that have had to step into the barn for just a second.. I apologize to all my cube mates. I do entertain my neighbors by scooting through the grass on the way to my car though.

I seem to have some sort of.. healthy/unhealthy battle going on inside myself. I'm entering the food zen portion of low carb. At least I reach a low carb food zen I don't know about anyone else. Without a bunch of crap food in my system I get mellow. I'm able to handle things better. I'm less emotional about the dumb stuff. All of this equals liquid gold because over the weekend it was me and a 3 yr old and an 11 month old in a giant truck hauling around a huge square bale wagon over hills into the great beyond. I didn't leave a single finger indent on the steering wheel. Then I got to feeling adventurous and we tore apart a garden that was being overrun by weeds. The kids helped.. I didn't hyperventilate. Sure we lost a plant or two but.. well we had fun and I was mellow enough to not panic that the baby was throwing dirt into his hair.. because his brother showed him how.. and dirt in your hair is.. funny? That's what baths are for right? See?? Mellow. I love it. As someone who suffers from anxiety.. alot.. mellow is a stage of bliss.

The only problem is I go from bliss to I WANT A COOKIE!!! Apparently that's the sugar withdrawls talking. It doesn't help that the preteen is gone for another week, hubby is apparently on a diet and apparently when we went shopping last we throught we needed a large number of cookies because we usually do.. I have them all out of sight so out of mind.. until I remember. We have cookies! I want a cookie! Cooooooookie!!! Luckily I have a picture of myself looking like a walrus.. and beets. Yes beets. Don't ask me why but they work. I'm a beet novice so my mother in law took some and pickled them for me.. sweet.. and dirt. That's the taste. Sweet dirt. The after taste is.. dirt. They are clean. They just taste like dirt. Maybe I grew them wrong. I don't know. I get my sweet fix and then have an after taste of dirt that kills any cookie cravings though. So beets.. who knew. Is it a sign I may need a straight jacket to eat something I know will leave the aftertaste of dirt? Maybe. But well.. eh. Too mellow to care. Bring on the beets!

And now.. I nap. Because I'm tired and destroying a garden with ragweed has left me stuffed up with a leaky eye. oooh.. maybe this could be reason for an early exit at work. If I sniffle and leak enough I could go home.. and.. I don't know. But I could do something. Like nap. ooooh nap.
