Let Freedom Ring!

So I get home today from work, left early because I felt soooo sick.  We’re talking end of the world sick like my stomach was going to curdle up inside me and rip out like a scene from Alien.  Anyways, I walk up the driveway and what is there in the mailbox?  A Salmon piece of heaven.

Now I should probably clarify that we did not have a fish sticking out of our mailbox.  No, we had a notice from our local post office that a package had been attempted to be delivered and was unable to as no one was home to sign it.  I am happy to say the package was the LAST REMAINING PIECE that we were waiting for so my husband can try to finish his motorcycle.  We’re talking kid at christmas:

on speed

 who then proceeds to multiply like Gremlins after getting dropped in water.

THAT is my husband right now.

Lucky for me I have the night “off” so to speak from painting.  I’m sick enough I don’t trust my hand to be steady with a can of spray paint.  I’m also STARVING, so I’ve eaten…let’s see…

Breakfast:                            Shake (90cal 2g net carbs)
Snack:                                  Atkins Bar (170 cal 3g net carbs)
Lunch:                                  Q’doba chicken and veggies sautéed
2nd Snack (yes really):     Atkins Bar (this was at 5:30PM and I thought I would die from hunger) 3G net Carbs 200 calories
Dinner:                                 Rotisserie Chicken, skipped the veggies to save some carbs
3rd Snack (shame!):          Supreme Protein Bar at 9:49 PM and then going to bed (204 cal, 8g net carbs)

I’m going to try and make it through the night without another snack, but we’ll have to hold out for it because tonight is anybody’s guess.  I have had a bit of soda, Pepsi Max to be specific, because it is sweetened with Sucralose instead of aspartame, and that made me at least be able to stay awake this late (it is officially 7:40 PM CST).

Well, I’m off to do something…anything really…to keep my mind off food (since I’m hungry, again, it’s been an hour).  Think it’s time for some research!

***Edit***
I broke…it’s shameful…I know…I had another bar, Supreme Protein Carb Conscious, with 7G net carbs and 15G Protein, 9G of fat…but there it is…if I have a gain tomorrow, at this point I deserve it, but at least my weakness and stomach cramping has subsided, and I’ve downed another 60 ounces of water since coming home from work, + the 70+ ounces I drank at work today.

664 calories before the lunch and dinner meats

16G net carbs

Yeah I don’t feel that bad

Tired Tuesday

So this is me today…I am exhausted…although that hardly seems to be the word for the suffering I’m in.  My stomach is destroyed, I’m stressed almost to the max and I feel like all it’d take is a little “sizzle” and I’d just pop like a balloon…

Found out that parts ordered 2 weeks ago didn’t ship until 6/15/2012 from Sweden, so they aren’t even supposed to be here until probably later this week, the wire transfer I sent to the guy for $225 got lost in cyber space, and my final payment for my cruise is due this week.  Did I mention I’m going on a cruise in September?  I really wanted to get down to 150 by the time I went, but I think I’ll only be down to about 160 or so, since I have to phase off the diet for a couple weeks before my trip.  Once I get back though it’ll be time to get back on the bandwagon and continue losing until I’m in the  lower percentage of my ideal weight.

I was back down to 169.6 this morning, so glad my body seems to be agreeing with yesterday’s dietary choices.  I was considering going on a walk during my lunch, but that action is just not going to happen, we have a high of 91 degrees and I know for a fact that the heat would kick my ass.

So I’m off to be exhausted…and sick…and hope that a good night of sleep and lots of water help me shake this bug.
