Loser Monday

Can you relate? I'm thinking this is the exact reason I didn't lose any weight this past week! What else could it be? Where's that wagon, 'cause I think I fell off it again. Sigh. I'm restarting TODAY. Really, I wrote down breakfast in my little orange notebook (it was 4 points).

I'm also going to blame it on my low iron and vitamin B12 levels. Yep, that's what the doctor said this morning. I need to buy multivitamins with iron, and get a B12 shot every month. I'm hoping that gives me enough energy to actually make it to the gym every couple of days. Lately I've been coming home from work and just dozing off in the big, comfy chair. When I wake up, I'm kinda dopey and I don't feel like doing anything, least of all exercising. My workouts have been infrequent. So, where's that wagon I need to get back on?

How often do you weigh yourself? I've been doing it every day, sometimes multiple times a day (just to see if it's working, ya know), but I think I might have to cut down to once a week. Perhaps Monday morning... bucknaked... before breakfast. That oughta do it!

Enough about dieting. Everytime I try to lose weight, I find myself OBSESSED with food, like the glorious supper I cooked Saturday night. Chicken with Peach Salsa (using the WW corn flake chicken recipe, but I had no corn flakes so I used crushed wheat thins instead) with parsnips (yummmm), green beans, and brown rice. Oh. So. Good.

This is the peach salsa, made in those last dying days of summer before school started.

I need to think about something other than food for a while. Yeah... I spent the weekend sewing a baby quilt for Jane Marie. I'll post a picture when I have it quilted and the binding on. Sewing the top is never a problem, but it sometimes takes me DAYS to figure out how to quilt it, and I approach this step with DREAD. I mean, I put all this effort (and fabric) into creating the top, what if I RUIN it with a crappy quilting design or uneven stitching? Arrrggghhh.

Okay, panic attack over. On with the day!

Oh, and stay tuned. I've got something good planned for later this week...

Oh and oh again...

THIS could be MY post. 100%. And yes, I weigh myself every morning and most evenings when I get home from work. It's an obession. I know it's not healthy but.. I can't help it!

oh a brave eater! i always look at those recipes for salsa that use a fruit other than tomatoes but can't bring myself to try them. you might want to look into nutrional yeast for your b12, it has 133% of your daily dose in 2 tbs (and 4% of your iron). tons of vegan recipes for it (that's how we get our b12 for the most part), but it's just as easily sprinkled on your salad too. most health food stores carry it.
