Sorry I've been MIA. I've been quiet lately because there has been a huge shift in my life. My diet and exercise have been put on the back burner for the past couple of weeks but I hope that will change after next week.

First good piece of news... I convinced someone I was management material. I've taken a reduction in hours at my previous job until they can find someone and this week I became a full time documentation manager at a new company. That means 60 hour work weeks and a nice little bump on the financial front. This leads to good news number 2.

I'm looking into either buying land to build on or a house in the country to move into in the nearish future because well... I told my husband I want a divorce. After 7 years together and living the last 3 as nothing more than roommates I've decided that life can and should offer more. I deserve better. I deserve someone who loves and wants me. Granted my husband has yet to accept this declaration as fact so I'm sure the toller coaster isn't over but I'm in the seat, my seatbelt is fastened and I'm keeping my hands and feet in the ride at all times. I wonder if this means I eventually have to come up with a new user name...

Next week I go on vacation to visit family and a few friends. When I return its full steam ahead. I need to look good and feel good for all those suits I need to look into buying. I'm a manager and stuff now.

Ok it's not a secret and anyone who reads my stuff on here knows I'm slightly obsessive over all things losing weight. I subscribe to fitness blogs, have 10 different apps on my phone, read diet and exercise books, listen to fitness podcasts.. Basically if I obsess then I seem to make progress because I'm too busy obsessing about the macros of a cake to eat the cake.. Ok it doesn't always work with cake but sometimes it does.

In hopes of seeing a weight loss before mid July I'm obsessing. Counting every calorie, workout, oz of water.. and reading everything I can get my hands on. Like the fitnesspal emails on diet and exercise. And then I come across advice that makes me want chuck sporks at someones head and scream WHY?!!?!?!?! because they look like they might be 100 lbs sopping wet.. are probably 12 yrs old.. and should not be giving advice on "Unusual ways to avoid cravings." Seriously... unless you have considered shoving your entire face into a chocolate cake or a pizza then you do not understand cravings.

Tip 1.. Breath: If I breath.. and the craving is right there in front of me. I will smell it. Making me want to have it even more. A more reasonable tip would be hold your breath until you pass out. By the time you wake up you will probably no longer want the craving because your head will hurt where you hit it when you fell.

Tip 2.. Think Logically: If I could think logically would I seriously be considering shoving my entire face into a cake? No. Obviously thinking logically is not a strong skill. Think illogically. Pretend the smelly guy in the office made the cake.. or the kids helped you and didn't wash their hands.. and they just came from the barn. That might help. MAYBE.

Tip 3.. Play a game: Because playing tetris and getting aggravated that the darn bits won't go to where they are supposed to be is going to relax me and no longer crave cake.. or I will chuck my phone so I can use both hands to eat the freakin cake.

Tip 4.. Time your meals strategically: Uhh yeah.. I did that. And then I had a craving and everything went to heck in a handbasket. What does strategic meal plans have to do with wanting to shove an entire candy bar in my mouth at once. I'm not hungry.. it's a craving for petes sake.

Tip 5.. Create nutrition audibles Like a quarterback in a game have an alternative plan when the original plan fails. How does the title of this tip have anything to do with plans? Audible.. audio.. is a plan? This is just too dumb for words. Lets call it.. have an alternative plan. Which would be GREAT. If I was organized and had a plan in the first place.

Tip 6.. Eat the craving daily... WTF?? Seriously W T F?? That's what got me into this situation in the first place!!!!


I got better advice from my bottle of kombucha this morning. "When setting goals, count any movement towards it as a measure of success; even the smallest step." Jonna Templar
