Random Whatnots

Ack!  Sorry about the lack of posts the last couple of days, it's been a crazier week than I planned, so I haven't had time to sit and write a thoughtful post.  I promise I'll do a better job later this week.

I have struggled lately with getting back on track with pretty much everything.  Tracking, food, portioning, getting enough water, etc.  Some of it is stress, but I need to get it under control ASAP because I put on a skirt today that was loose last week, and it was tight today!  Of course it could have been the corned beef I made for St. Paddy's day, which was the equivalent of eating 2 cups of salt pretty much, but still.  It's funny, we were all discussing that we were having issues with getting on track lately at the coffee date with Katie.

Not much else to report, so I thought I'd do a photo dump from my phone because, why not?

Day late and a dime short on this, but when I was puttering around with my flower beds the other day, I noticed that in the middle of the dirt was a lone four leaf clover...I left it in there to bring good luck of course!


We have a "pet" squirrel named Stubs because he/she only has half a tail.  We hadn't seen Stubs in several weeks, after faithfully coming to the door for peanuts every day for months, so I thought Stubs had gone to the big oak tree in the sky.  Except I looked out the other day and there he/she was!


Miss Molly went CRAZY yesterday when we poured our St. Paddy's beers.  I got her to pose for a second, but she was really trying to get into my glass.  I finally poured her a tiny bit in a dish, since everyone in this house is a booze hound, literally.


We got a new coffee maker, and this thing is my life.  It's not like it's super fancy, it was only $30, but the coffee tastes so much better now!  It also has this delay brew function, so now my lazy ass doesn't even have to come down and hit a button anymore.  It's beautiful.

  1. Aww Stubs is so cute :) Getting back on track seems to be everyone's challenge...I need spring!

    1. Stubs is funny, she (I think it's a she) has no qualms about coming to the sliding glass door and peering into window until we come bring her peanuts or whatever we have on hand. She will even begrudgingly take crackers if that's all we have.

  2. My doggies LOVE beer. I think its totally a universal dog thing. But why not, its sweet and tastes like a treat right? We drink it as a treat so I get it.

    Funny how you have moments of profound "I'm in it" mentally and then you have moments where it is simply a struggle to do a single thing. Unfortunately I've been more off than on lately. Maybe someday my motivation will come back.

    1. Definitely have been off lately, and while I know some people would disagree with this mentality, sometimes I think it's good to take a break mentally from the tracking and all of that once in awhile. As long as it doesn't last more than a week or so, and as long as you don't go apesh*t and eat 12 burgers a day of course. I find that the more I stress about it and have the "get it together girl" convos with myself, the worse it gets. I've just kind of said to myself that this is a nutty week, to try to do my best, but that I can't let it go much beyond that or else it will take me 7 months to get to the 100s!

  4. Yay for deliciuous coffee! I have a rule in the house...don't talk to me until after coffee. It is strictly enforced :)

  5. That's the one feature I wish I could add to my Keurig - autoprogramming so it would be ready for me in the morning. Ah, bliss to wake up to coffee already waiting for you

  6. Good call on leaving the four leaf clover in there. Who doesn't need a little more luck?

    I love that Molly had some beer with you. She's getting in touch with her Irish roots.

  7. I am so glad I'm not the only one having problems getting "back on track". I like to blame the weather...
