I guess it's been a while.

      I didn't realize it had been so long since my last post. So long that I can't even remember what my last post was about. It just  hasn't been a good week over here at Casa De Sabrizzle. The baby had the flu, I had the flu, I'm so tired, the baby is a monster. As I write this she's standing beside me crying... just cuz she can I guess. I'm going to take her to the park later, and I even thought about doing a work out at the park but I feel so self conscious. I know it's so easy to get a work out in there but people might think I'm crazy, or weird... or why is this fat chick pretending like she works out or something. I have no idea.

     I asked for some advice on my fitness pal, and some one helped me figure out I should be eating 1650 calories a day, 35/40/25 (carbs, protein, fat) so that's taking a little bit to get used to. I hope I don't see a gain before a loss because I might actually completely lose my mind. I'm assuming I am going to, I've been eating about 500 calories for a few days and my stomach is still not feeling so hot so I'm just eating what I can and not what I should.

     I have a wedding to go to Sunday night, my dad agree'd to babysit. My friend agree'd to babysit if he bails. So I definitely have a babysitter and I'll definitely be able to go out Sunday night! I bought a new outfit and cleaned off my dancing shoes. I'm SO excited, I hope I feel better so I can be 100% fun.

     Don't forget to vote Monday! I'm still torn, but pretty sure I know who I'll be voting for this year!

who doesn't love ice cream cake??

     Rainy day here, it's nice though so snuggle up and watch movies with Nina. Drink some of my new teas I bought yesterday. One being David's Tea Ice Cream Cake. It makes me want stew, or soup for dinner but we're having chicken parmesan which is good too. Soup and sandwich for lunch, I think so.

     Yesterday I was having such a great day. I went shopping and Nina was being an angel and no complains at all. I'm sure being a 2 year old stuck in a stroller for 5 hours cannot be fun. I met up with Katy for a few minutes too! Shopped and hung out with Nina. Had an Arbys Beef n' Cheddar for lunch witch was the same calories as the salad I had planned in  my lunch lol. Went car shopping and while we were talking to the lady about financing she asked Nina if she was "excited for the new baby" Like really?  Nothing to bring me down when I'm feeling good about myself. Adrian did buy me a fantastic pair of sunglasses though so I'm happy. I just have to remember that I'm working on it and some people are just ignorant. Even though I've lost weight and I feel good about it I'm still fat to the rest of the world and they don't know that I'm trying.

   Time to curl up for a couch nap.

I ate a chunk of margarine today.

     With breakfast, by accident. Not pleasant.

     So Easter is here. Any one who knows me at all knows I have a hard time with the holidays. This Easter was actually so amazing for me. I wasn't looking forward to it but I ended up having a really great day. We woke up and Nina did her egg hunt and had jelly beans for breakfast, then Adrian made us real breakfast. Nina did a ton of painting, she loves it! My dad even came over and brought me coffee which I don't drink but the thought counts!  Then we went to my moms which is what I was really dreading but I ended up having an okay time and Nina had a lot of fun. Lupper was good! Ham and mashed potatoes, I ate lots of salad and water.  We went for a drive and I drove!  Then we went to wal-mart and had pizza and wings for dinner ( still in my calories, no worries guys!) TWO EPISODES OF GCB?! Heck yes.

     I weighed in today, 157. It's definitely set my mood for today because I am in SUCH a good mood. Definitely going for a walk later.  I made a smoothie today with breakfast and shared it with Nina.  having chicken curry ( from where else, skinny taste!) for dinner tonight.

     I am definitely past my plateau now, thanks to raising my calories and I am definitely definitely feeling great about it. I am so out of my funk and feeling so much better about everything. I seriously thought I was going to lose it. Almost 300 days of 1200 calories and like 200 of them not losing anything? Seems impossible! Not any more though. I'm in a good place.

    Today also marks my 300 day anniversary on MFP. I can't believe it. I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BEEN 300 DAYS. A couple more pounds and I'll be able to add more pics so  my progress photos! 5 lbs.

Saveee meeee... I'm such a baby about being sick I curl up on the couch and practically make my husband spoon feed me. Okay, not really...  but now that I think about it, it doesn't sound half bad. After a beautiful week, it snowed last night. A LOT. Too much. Now it's sunny again and I'm starting to think our weather is bi-polar. I'm going to take a page from the book of Ayla and shovel my sidewalk later to burn some calories. Something I haven't been doing much of lately. I'M SICK THOUGHHHH... I haven't weighed myself in a few days so I have no idea what that is. If I had to guess,  162? LOL. Probably :( I think AF is going to rear her ugly head any day now so it wouldn't be shocking.

     I'm doing okay with calories and all that stuff, nothing really to update on that front. I'm trying to find some good smoothies/shakes for breakfast and I know that making them is obviously the best way to go but I wonder if there is anything store bought/easier. Easier then making a smoothie? God, could I be any lazier? I found one on Skinnytaste ( Go figure!) that seems easy and delicious so I'm going to try it tonight since I don't have nearly enough calories for today. Maybe I'll have some soup and toast. Maybe I'll have a nap.

     Maybe I should work out.

     I'm winning half the battle. I've upped my calories and am doing well staying in them, even having trouble to eat enough. Not really eat enough as eat enough healthy choices. Still struggling with my sodium but other then that doing better with my macro-nutrients over all. I also hid my scale in the basement so while I'll still be checking my weight once in a while I am far too lazy to go down there every morning when I wake up. This is the good news.

   The not so hot news is that I am not doing so well with my walking/jogging/working out in general.  Last night I felt the scratch in my throat and today I have a full blown man cold.  AGAIN! I never get sicks and now I've been sick twice, it's so annoying. I wish this weather would just settle down! So I know I should be working out but I am far too tired, lazy, sore, and hating my life today. During the babies nap I am going to take a super hot bath with some neocitran and then nap on my couch. Couch naps are always the best naps. Depending on the time when we wake up then maybe we'll get a walk in this evening but I doubt it.

    Omg! I can't believe I didn't post this, because I find it hilarious. On April Fools Day I woke up, and changed my facebook name to my sisters, Kim and my display picture to one of her. I wrote on her facebook page, "Where are you, sister?!" and "I love you!". She did not find it nearly as hilarious as I did. Actually she deleted me from her facebook and is refusing to ever talk to me again. So I did it to my friend Linda and I actually feel bad because I tagged her in a different friends status and she ended up getting like 200 notifications but didn't come online the whole day so in the end she was just confused but I legit spent most of my day giggling like a psycho at my computer. Doesn't take much to amuse me lol. I was going to saran wrap Adrians toilet but then figured I'd be the one who ended up doing all the cleaning so no thank-you.

     So many activities planned this week! I want to do some walking so I can reach my 15K goal because I have not ONCE done it, and it's not even much!! I want to go swimming when I'm not dying any  more and Wednesday we're putting the small satan into a twin bed so this is going to be an interesting week.

Happy April Fools!

     I haven't seen 162 since I went down to 157 and I am stoked! Upping my calories was the absolute best thing I could have done. I'm having a little difficulty staying in my macro nutrients but it's getting better. Not today though cause I have a little bit of a hang over from girls night and I had Mcdonalds for lunch and will have Subway for dinner lol.

Just three chicks in a tub.

     It was nice to hang out with some new friends. We never did get around to the board game, but my nails have never looked better. I always feel nervous after I hang out with new people, hoping they don't think I'm a nutjob or something afterwards. I had fun though, lots of good snacks, too good.
