According to the Losing It app.. I will reach my goal of 130 lbs on November 17th. Excuse me while I fall to the ground and laugh until I almost pee myself. It's kinda cute the app thinks I can do that if I just keep eating the way that I've been eating. At least it's more helpful than them telling me I still have a bagillion pounds to lose at each weigh in. Just sayin.. If I reach my goal by November 17th I will go streaking through the cow pasture naked. This is upstate NY. We had 2 inches of snow this morning. On November 17th we will probably have 3 foot of snow. This should tell you how confident I am in reaching that achievement.

See? You're all rooting for the November 17th date now aren't you? lol If it happens I will post video of a blurred out crazy lady running through a snow covered cow pasture screaming her head off.

So far the higher fat, low carb diet is working pretty well. I'm on day 5 and I've been able to resist any temptation to cheat and eat garbage. I've been tempted though... sooo sooooooo tempted. I've managed to work out on the elliptical every day this week. I'm slowly working in a body weight workout too but I'm still playing around with what my numbers and reps should be. Once I figure this out I will have a regular routing.

I've started a blog. ( Well technically I started a blog with one blog entry. I'm going to make myself write something on it a couple times a week and keep up here. Get ready for some serious cut and paste skills in the near future. Right now they seem to be two completely different journals/blog/diary/documentation of my fall into insanity. The blog seems to be more personal for some reason. For instance today I plan to post my before butt pic for future reference as the before to a future after. Why? Well because.. no one said I was sane. You should all realize this by now.

Oh and for the random people who have started friending me and have no clue what you just stepped into. You can't say I didn't warn you.

I've been playing with Wordpress today. Did you know they have an app for that? Super cool. I could blog from the bathroom if I wanted. I may actually do that just to say "Hey.. I'm blogging from the bathroom." Most of the blogs will probably just be a repeat of what is on here but who knows. I may post pictures of my food on there. So if you want to see my food then you'll have to follow the blog when I have it done. *snort* Ok probably not. I will probably post more pictures on there though. So if you want to see random pictures of cow butts and tiny farmers well.. you'll know where to find them.

The good news is bullet proof coffee appears to work when you have time to make it. I went from 201.2 on Friday to 199.8 today. I'm just horrible about logging my weight so the drop looks like a grain. The theory is I was cutting my calories too much along with my fat. Supposedly if I add more fat but keep the calorie cut the same I should be able to lose weight again. This comes from the body builder who I mentioned in the last entry. One kind of tends to listen to someone who spends every free minute turning their body into a power lifting machine. Not that I want to be a power lifter.. I just want to look like I'm healthy, active, and have a 5'0" frame that looks like it could kick butt.. maybe.

Now I have to figure out what I'm doing wrong on Wordpress.

If you want to have an interesting week then I suggest you follow these steps:

1. Complain to a friend non-stop that the scale hates you and refuses to move and then send them pictures of your butt and ask them if they think it's too wide. Seriously.. I took BB pics. They are my before butt pictures. I will take AB (after butt) pics when I reach my goal. A girl has got to have priorities. Mine happen to be how much of a chair my butt takes up when I sit. Oooooh butt impressions! I should totally make a before butt, butt impression.

2. After this friend threatens to smack you upside the head with your scale if you don't stop obsessing then you can challenge them to figure out what you are doing wrong. I recommend you consider which friend you do this.. I chose a female body builder. She could kill me any number of ways with or without my scale. Make sure you are way too busy and live too far away from the insane friend for them to require you go to their gym especially if they are a body builder.

3. Follow the friends recommendations even if it seems an awful lot like the Keto Diet even though they keep insisting it isn't. It's a balanced diet.. that includes bulletproof coffee and lets me cook everything in butter.... Totally not complaining. And if this works well then who am I to say I know anything. Obviously I don't know anything because the freaking scale refuses to move and the youngest is 2-1/2. I can't exactly claim this is baby weight anymore.

Oh and crazy friend diet advice.. if your friend tells you to drink your bullet proof coffee over an hours time then do it. Even though you're in your car driving to a kids appointment and you're worried it will get cold and no one likes cold coffee.. just do it. Yes I know the coconut oil smells heavenly and the taste isn't nearly as bad as you thought it would be. Just follow the crazy friend advice... If you don't and you send her text with any complaints she will laugh at you for an entire day.. and probably then some.

I'm pretty boring today. This may be because I only got 4 hours of sleep and I'm not quite sure if I'm still awake at this point. Today's project is coming up with a circuit that I will actually follow, track, and improve on with each passing week. The problem with this is I overthink a lot of things and this appears to be one of them. I currently have 6 going spreadsheets while I try to decide what I will do, how many days I will do it for, and at what point I will become so sore that I won't be able to go down stairs or sit in a chair without falling into it. It's going to happen. I know it will happen. It's part of the fun of any new workout routine for a person who always pushes themselves way too far. lol At some point I will post these on here for all to see and judge and use as proof for when they finally send me to the nut farm because I can't move my arms and legs anymore.

In addition to obsessing about workouts I'm also tracking food on the Losing It app now. This came at the suggestion from a friend that I should be tracking percentages and not just calories. Plus she's tired of hearing me complain about my stalemate with the scale and it was either this or she probably would have smacked me upside the head with a scale. It's good to have friends who are willing to smack you upside the head when you need it or tell you to pull your head out of your butt.

And since I refuse to post pictures of my food... I will post this instead. HA!
