25 January 2017

Yesterday I worked from home because there was white stuff falling from the sky and I live in the middle of no where and I was tired. I realized that when I work from home I don't move very much.. This could be because I was remoting into my computer at work and the house was cold so I had my legs in the boys tiny spiderman sleeping bag... Do bunny hops to the kitchen for more tea count as steps? Plus the teenager was home because school was cancelled so every time she interrupted me with "Mom.. can you buy me, can we go to, I need.. blah blah blah.. " I could say "Maybe if you get me ___ I will think about it." I even convinced the girl to make me chocolate cookies because there wasn't anything sweet in the house. Having a teenager is a marvelous thing.. sometimes. Other times I think slamming my head into a wall would be easier but I think that is true with all tiny adults.

So yes.. yesterday I ate glorious chocolate cookies with hot cocoa because I was craving chocolate. I barely moved because I didn't have to. I refused to go to the outside world and stayed on my farm. It was amazing! I am considering this my get out of jail card. Because lets face it.. when you're busy, stressed, tired, attempting to lose weight, logging everything you eat, trying to be active and fit, and not kill everyone around you. You need a get out of jail card. I think from now on I will give myself one card a month. Yesterday was my day. Today.. is my day to miss yesterday and put on my big girl panties and suck it up and just do it.

I am sooooooo tired. I am somehow managing to only eat good things, drinking only marginally more coffee, and yawning between every 2 words. It helps that I keep reminding myself that I'm not actually hungry I'm just exhausted from only getting 4 hours of sleep last night in between games of.. who did what, who wants what, who has their knee in my back, seriously you peed my bed!?!?! and which dog is whining now. The tiny humans got up at 4am after waking me up about a dozen times between 10 and 4 after we moved to the couch at 1:30 am. Then we watched tv and I marveled that the little balls of energy seemed to be perfectly charged and set in high gear. Seriously.. who wakes up at 4am happy, energetic, and ready to cause as much noise as humanly possible? Tiny humans. Tiny humans do this.

The good news is I managed to lose some weight over the weekend thanks to my new found buddy the common cold. Before I was completely exhausted I was just plain tired and worn out and didn't give a flying flip about food so avoiding junk was easy peasy. Working out was a bit more of a struggle but I live on a farm. It's not like I could avoid being active. Cleaning up leftover feed, feeding calves, cleaning barn, stacking hay, chasing tiny humans.. you get the idea.

Today I will not feed my exhaustion. I will embrace being below 210. I will yawn a lot and hope to not snore during todays staff meeting. I may drool a bit but I will try not to snore.

I'm beginning to think my Fitbit has something against me. I'm not positive but I don't think it likes me. First it patronized me and my goals and asked if I would like to reevaluate my daily goals. I thought it was attempting to be friendly and helpful so I said sure. It suggested I reduce my daily goal of 10,000 steps to 8,500 because I can only seem to average 7,000. It also suggested I may want to adjust my goal weight because I don't seem to be losing any weight. I glared at it for a while but decided to move on. Give me a goal of 8,500 and I'll get my 10,000. Which I did.. that day.

Today I noticed that the pessimistic bit of plastic isn't acknowledging my workouts. I set a goal to workout 5 days a week. I've worked out three times this week and it only registered one. I'm only one little tiny colored octagon side. Pfft. Maybe it doesn't think I'm working out hard enough. My elliptical, sweaty shirt, and sore legs disagree.

So like I said.. I'm not positive. But I think my relationship with my fitbit is on the rocks. Maybe I should attach it to one of the tiny humans and see what it thinks of that. Then again one of the tiny humans would probably decide to dunk it in the toilet. I already spent a half hour this morning explaining that if we wash the toy skid steer with toothpaste in the sink it will no longer make noises.

You would think that feeling big, unattractive, frumpy, and kind of like a clump of manure mixed with hay on the bottom of a barn boot would motivate me. It didn't though.. it made me crave a cheeseburger. It didn't matter how many times I imagined being a lump of poop I still wanted the cheeseburger. Still.. I'm losing weight cheeseburger or no cheeseburger so that's good right?

It all started this morning when I looked at my closet and decided I didn't like anything in it because I had worn everything in rapid repeat week after week because I refuse to buy any new work clothes that I am determined will not fit in the future. So I decided to go kinda casual and picked a nice t-shirt. My boss is out and I'm going to be stuck in my office trying to read foreign languages that I can't read so why not?

The "why not" is that t-shirts and slacks hate one another. The shirt rides up on the silky material and before you know it you've got that front butt/momma pouch/yup.. that girl had kids peaking out anytime you have to pee.. or get more coffee.. or go to the copier.. or walk past the training room full of customers you had no clue where going to be at work for training and they're all from other countries and dressed in suits and you really want to talk to the people with the amazing accents because accents are amazing but you can't because you're in a t-shirt and slacks and your front butt is out. So poop.. But oh wait it gets better!

The new tiny pit bull the company hired to maximize revenue opportunities is there too. She's I think.. 75 lbs, 4 foot something, and the personality of.. not that I have anything against pitbulls but you get the idea. So she gave me the look up, look down, you fat pig look. At least that's the way I interpreted it. She does tend to look at everyone and seem to size them up to see if you are of use to her then if you're not she immediately dismisses you. I've been dismissed several times. Once she introduced herself and realized I didn't do anything she could use so she never talked to me again, wont even say hi in the hallway. Another time she realized I wasn't the executive secretary in Germany who could get her a car and she was stranded at a train station... Just sayin.

I seem to be ranting in super big paragraphs so one more thing.. an old friend got in contact with me on facebook today and asked me how I was doing. After this kind of day I instantly thought.. well about 60 lbs heavier since you knew me but otherwise good. I thought it. I did not say it. I am apparently having an I feel fat day.

I'm going to go gnaw aggressively on carrots now. Please excuse my ranting long paragraphs about things that probably only made sense in my head.

The plague has stuck. Yesterday I felt like roadkill and kept having light headed spells so I skipped working out. Today the sitter is out sick with a stomach bug so I'm "working from home" with the boys. So far we have emailed a lot of co-workers, called a younger kid-less co-worker and treated him to the Mom, Mom, Mommy, Momma song because the second I'm on the phone they have got to talk to me. Now. Oh and then the tiniest human saw daddy on the skid steer and attempted to crawl out the window with no pants.. or shoes... or jacket.

"Yes of course. I will have that to you by the end of the day. Don't you worry.. NOOOOO NO NO NO Get your little tiny naked butt back in this house and stop crawling out the windows. Son of a freakin bisquit. Oh no.. sorry not you. No you can crawl out the window naked if you want but I don't think the windows in the office open.. something about jumpers, safety.. blah blah blah naked men crawling out windows. The usual. I better get back to work."

Eating so far is better than at the office. I have to get up every 5 minutes to get someone something or their life could end, and I get to milk cows tonight so my husband can go to the outside. Why he wants to leave our lovely, peaceful farm and children is beyond me but yaknow. At least I will be maxing out my 10,000 steps and squatting almost a hundred times tonight.
