Day 1

Yesterday was the first step towards committing to a LCHF life. Honestly I’ve tried before and always ended up cheating in some way. It’s easy to slip when your busy and you have small humans following you around with an endless supply of cookies and nuggets and fruit snacks always clutched in their hands. Nuggets are a serious gateway food when I’m trying low carb… it’s technically protein it was just battered and deep fried. I have and can justify this in my head. Next think I know I’m spraying cool whip in my mouth eyeballing the kids ice cream sandwiches. I may have a tiny addiction to sugar, and salt, and deep fried foods, and maybe fake cheese products.

I’m also recommitting to strength training, and basically declared the next 90 days a no excuses allowed space. I will eat on plan, workout ever day, and increase and strengthen as I go.

Today was…. educational. I’ve decided bullet proof coffee is mocha flavored liquid lip balm. I know people say they love it… I’m just not sure how. I discovered a spoonful of almond butter are a great predinner distraction especially when tiny humans are insisting they are about to starve to death even though you saw them eating a snack 10 minutes before. I also discovered I can actually get up early enough to eat breakfast before work if I don’t mind going to work with shoes that don’t match.

Stats and the workout are listed on the blog.. I'm cutting and pasting because well.. I'm lazy.

Sticking with the theme that April showers bring in May flowers... I've decided to challenge myself to 90 days of no crap, no excuses, and no reason to not see results. Oh yes.. it's another dairyfarmerswife challenges that isn't actually a challenge because I didn't decide to do this until Saturday night when I was in the middle of spraying cool whip in my mouth. Yup.. I did it. I admit to it. Yes it's horrible chemicals that taste delicious and I shouldn't have had them but COME ON... who can resist the urge to spray cool whip into their mouth when given the opportunity?

So starting today it's a strict LCHF diet because that's what works for me. It's never failed me in the past but other things have. It's exercising ever single night without fail. I may be in my fuzzy bunny slippers going 0.1 mph on the elliptical sipping coffee out of a sippy cup at 2 am but I will do it. It's switching things up and adding more strength training and different cardio and stacking hay bales and being chased by a heifer out of the pasture. It's putting it all on the line and going 2.89 mph.. ok maybe 3.01 mph.. Ehhh.. It will speed up with time.

I will post what I'm doing day by day. I will blog about it on wordpress. I will take pictures when possible. And I will complain bitterly until the very end.

Today's motivation is brought to you by July 15th... the day I plan to go back home and see people I haven't seen in 7 years and I want to make sure my butt is the same size it was 7 years ago... before the 2 additional kids were born.... and I found a gray hair in my eyebrow. Yup that happened.

Copied and pasted from, um.. yesterday.. because well.. I'm about a focused as a cat chasing a laser pointer.

This weekend was one of the more challenging ones since I started my journey of healthy eating, exercising, and attempting to not teach the tiny humans to curse like truck drivers. I failed miserably on all fronts thanks to a giant package of glazed donuts, having only 5-6 hours a night of sleep finally catch up to me, a deep stressful conversation with my husband, and tiny humans that refused to take naps and wanted instead to go inside or outside every 4 minutes and 26 seconds. Inside, outside, inside, outside, snack, inside, drink, outside, go , go, go. I suppose that counts as some exercise but it also had me cursing like a truck driver the 109th time.

I am proud to say… The donut was just ok, the tiny bear cookies my kids keep raving about are absolutely disgusting, the ice cream was ok but not worth it, and today I am back on track. I’m eating more than I should but I’m eating all the approved things that I can eat and still be ok. I’m tracking. I will workout. I will succeed and beat this mountain with tiny baby steps in the right direction. I will not let sugar, stress, or tiny humans distract me from my main goal of being healthy.

Today my facebook account was also kind enough to remind me that 4 years from today I was on a different weightloss journey where I managed to get down to 140 lbs. I did it once. I will do it again. I will beat the 190’s and every level that comes after that. I will be healthy. I will feel comfortable in my own skin. I will be strong like moose.

20 April 2017

Nothing puts a skip in your step like new heels, a drop on the scale, and Victoria Secret. Unfortunately I also seem to be suffering from short term memory loss because I forgot what the weight loss was... 196ish??? Somewhere in there. It was a drop though so I put on new heels I got yesterday and something pretty from Victoria Secret. I think from now on every weight loss should be celebrated the same way because heaven knows I don't feel sexy most of the time.. ok ever. I never ever feel sexy. I just don't. It's hard to feel sexy with one kid wrapped around your leg and cow poop on your forehead. For some reason heels, a kid wrapped around your leg, and new pretty things that do amazing things can make you feel kinda sexy even if there is cow poop on your forehead.

I'm grateful because I needed a feel sexy moment today. Now I know.. I'm married so this probably doesn't make much sense. I had lunch with a friend today that happens to be a guy and the conversation came to a point when I realized this man was not and would never be attracted to me. Yeah I know I'm married so I shouldn't care. Which.. quite frankly is crap. Just because you're married doesn't mean you're invisible. It would be nice and kinda flattering to know what someone other than your partner would want you if there was a zombie apocalypse and everyone else was walking around rotting. It kinda stung. I know it shouldn't but it did. I know people have all sorts of different preferences but.. well.. Ouch.

It doesn't help that I posted a weighin yesterday on my blog and decided to start taking weekly pictures to show progress that isn't just on the scale. My ego is currently curled up in the corner sucking its thumb. That being said.. I've lost over 15 lbs from my heaviest. I'm making slow and steady progress. Maybe.. just maybe.. someday I will turn the head of someone who wasn't yoked to me in a ceremony in the back yard. Yes we were yoked... don't ask. The pastor was hilarious and we said whatever you want. We basically asked for it.
