My diet has been crap for 3 weeks, I haven't had a single second to workout. I miss the gym, I miss sweat, I miss my running buddy. Basically all the things I used to talk about on here I don't have at the very moment. I have to get my butt back to the gym!!!!!!!
I have spent the entire month of December with a calendar entry every single night. And I am not exaggerating. Every night I came straight home from work, which I am still figuring out, btw, and off to the next event. It was 5-7 basketball games a week, school Christmas programs, kids church programs, and then the adult Christmas program. Every single night!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So this last week on Friday on my way home I realized that I had nothing to do that night. I was going to clean my house and wrap Christmas presents. Then I remembered that I was going to take my niece to the movies. That was kinda chill and relax so it wasn't pressing or stressful, but karma knew that there was nothing going on and then......
My nephew stared complaining of stomach pain. Turns out that pulled muscle he had was actually his appendix. So he got to have a weekend stay at the hospital! (He had his appendix removed, and thank the Lord his appendix had not ruptured) Then me and my sympathetic symptoms started kicking in...and my belly started hurting. It had actually started hurting the week before but it really vamped up once his appendix was jacked up.
I thought it was sympathetic until it kept up, so I WebMD! Worst decision ever!!!!!!!! I need this web page blocked...like yesterday. I really was not feeling well then my shoulder starting hurting, then my neck. I was falling apart, not to mention every time I added a new symptom to WebMD made the type of cancer I had worse. So I finally broke down and went to the doctor today. Turns out I have gastritis, some stomach thing, and the stress that I have put myself under by readying WebMD has caused trigger points in my back and neck to flare up.
So I have a new medicine to settle my stomach, a prescription to stay off of WebMD, and a blood panel tomorrow to rule out all those other diseases I have from reading the website!
Now I have to find time to get a little sweat in, that may help with my stress level, which is obviously way too high. I have actually lost weight this week, see diet is obviously for the birds just put yourself under way to much stress and the pounds just fall off!!!!!! Here at the holidays and everything! Woo hoo!
So I hope you guys are having a great holiday season. I know mine has been crazy and fun so far and we aren't even to the big day yet.
And thanks guys for the birthday wishes. My sister is really sweet to post my birthday announcement but I am going to delete the blog email as soon as I can get my hands on her phone! (That's not true, I enjoy the random sister post)

I am also trying to figure out the workouts. I am having to do the early morning workouts this week. I do not like 5am!!!! But if I dont get my workout it will make me a cranky little FatGirl and nobody wants that. Once I get my schedule worked out I think I will be able to relax a little bit.
I will reach out for a little help, I have been working out in the morning which is kinda hindering my breakfast. Do any of you out there have a breakfast that I could take on the go? I have some Clif Bars and tonight I got a new protein shake to try, but I like a big breakfast so Im taking suggestions.
It's only 8:45 and I feel like I should be getting in bed because I have to be up so early in the morning. That is one good thing about the human body, once it gets adjusted to something it really adapts well. Eat healthy, my body craves that, water, more please, wake up early, Im getting there, workout! If I dont I might DIE!!!!!
I picked a hell of a week to start waking up early, you know right off the Black Friday weekend when I got 4 hours of sleep in 3 days.
So please stick with me as I make a big transition in my life. Right here at the holidays and everything!!!! I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season already, its just getting started and I for one cant wait.
Just FYI I know there are a lot of missing punctuation missing but Im having a bit of trouble with my computer again. :) haha those two work!

2. Cops at the sheet section at Wal-Mart.
3. Fight in the towel section.
4. The sound of firecrackers when they pop the plastic on the pallets.
5. 3 seats in the van...6 people.
6. Can't tell if the drivers are drunk or Black Friday shoppers.
7. Aleve and Diet Coke...
8. Getting the best deal of the day at the 1st stop.
9. Draining half your cell phone battery before midnight.
10. The person in front of you in line has toxic gas and you stay for the deal.
11. WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED!

And then there is the day after Thanksgiving. As many of you know my family participates in the wonderful grand tradition known as Black Friday!!!!!! If you are new, please check out last year's fun.
I am already getting prepared for the party, what I really need is about 10 hours of extra sleep before Thursday. But this year we are going to do some fun things that we haven't done before. This year I will be blogging the whole process for you, from my mobile phone. You can follow along right here at fatgirltothin.blogspot.com, follow on facebook: also Fat Girl to Thin, and even Twitter. You can check them all because you never know which one will get the post of the pic so you will just have to check all day. Our shirts this year will have the blog QR code so people we meet along the way will be able to follow along as well. I have also loaded the blog email to my sisters as well so there will be 6 of us updating throughout the day.....its liable to be crazy.
I hope you all stay home all day long and just follow along and stay out of the stores so you will be one less person I have to compete with to get my toys or wait in line behind.
Happy Thanksgiving folks.....hope you have a great one.

I got to the gym, opened the back door and no running shoes. That's ok I must have thrown them in the back....nope. Back to the back seat, no shoes. I have no earthly idea where my shoes are. Then I had to walk in to meet my running buddy with my head hung low and admit that I had no shoes, and to top it off I have no idea where they are. I always leave them in my car so until I get home tonight about 10 I will be in the dark. I just hope they are there.
My running buddy had run earlier with another girl so she already got her miles in so we just went and ate breakfast instead of running. REALLY?!?!?!?!?? That is not helping with the weight loss!

Today at work we had a Thanksgiving dinner so I am really going to need a workout tonight. I was hoping to scurry up to the gym on my lunch break but I have a meeting for job 1 that is going to take up dinner time so its looking more and more like 10pm will be my workout tonight.
My week so far has been way more vanilla than the last few weeks. I have been somewhat busy but just work and ballgames busy. It makes for some late nights getting home but I love some basketball season so I will take a small break in sleep to see my babies play ball. I have to miss 3 nights a week right now because my work schedule conflicts with the games but that is about to change. Segway please: I guess this is my announcement time. I have just accepted a new job. So now instead of one full time and then part time and little jobs to fill in the cracks I will be working one job.... I am pretty excited about it. I am keeping my Real Estate job but on that one will become part time. Again I am pretty excited about it and I hope it all works out.
Let's see what else....Biggest Loser. I am sorry to report that I didn't get to watch it yet this week and someone ruined the surprise for me. WOOOOO HOOOOOO! I cant wait to watch the episode. I'm actually thinking about having a party to watch it since the Crier is going home!!!!!
Then my next TV update comes in because I just want to talk about it. Does anyone out there watch Dancing With The Stars. I have watched this show on and off for years but mostly just watch it when they play it online. Not committed to it one way or the other. But after watching Mondays show I have to say. Hope Solo may have gone a little bit further 1. If she could dance. and 2. If she didn't have such a sucky attitude. She and Max were constantly complaining about something. Good riddance and goodbye. I am so happy she didn't make it into the finals!!!!! TEAM JR!

This week topped off the business that I have seen in a while. I wish on about Wed. I could have gotten on here to tell you about it and give you a heads up that I was crazy and probably not going to get to post, but I didn't even have time for a one liner.
So tonight between coats of paint (and what should be drinks) I shall post!!!!
I didn't have the kids until Sunday. I went to church and then picked up the kids for a night at their house. They had been away from home for about 2 days. And the first night my job was pretty easy. They didn't have school the Monday so I only had to get them clean and fed. Ramen noodles!!! Oh yeah, don't worry that gets funnier in a minute.
So their dad came home on Monday, they didn't have school but I did have to work. So I ran off to work about 10am...I had a meeting to make it too. I did have time to get home and shower before, which is way better than the last time I kept them.
Monday was a normal day Job #1 then Job #2 then home for a good nights sleep. Tuesday started off pretty normal as well. I ran off to work, knowing that I was going to be picking up from school. No mini van this time, I love sporting the mini. I knew we had practice and stuff after school but as the day went on my sisters kept calling me and adding stuff to my after school projects. To top it all off I had already scheduled a showing for 3:30. Trust me, I haven't sold anything in a while, so I will definitely not miss a showing. I got so freaked out that I would forget something that I made a list....
Tuesday night was the most crazy thing I have done. I feel the need yet again to apologize to all those mom's out there that I have made fun of....I just don't know how you do it. So, SORRY really really sorry!!!!
We made it through all of our afternoon activity, only being late a few times. Let's see if I can describe it. Pick up kids, drop off at church, other end of the county for showing, back to church to pick up one kid, that kid to dance, so thirsty no time to stop, back to church to pick up another kid, head to school to pick up another kid, run back to dance to take a drink, sooooo thirsty, back to the school to pick up from ball practice, finally I got a drink and Gatorade for the one from ball practice: he had to be thirsty, off to dance 2 kids in tow to pick up the third from dance. Whew. I think I kept dropping off drinks because I was so thirsty.
The next morning I got up just a few minutes before the kids did to make breakfast. Wed Morning Menu: Just add milk Blueberry Muffins. Add milk and bake for 14 minutes. And we got to school ON TIME!!!!
Wednesday was the last time I had the kids but I was ready to go again. I actually took off part of the night so I could pick them up, but my sister got to come home Wednesday night. So I didn't have to play mommy again. Just as I was getting into the groove of things. I found out later that the littlest kid said I was the best cook ever. I actually laughed out loud. Can Chili, Ramen noodles, frozen French Fries, and Add Milk Muffins. (I'm having college flashbacks!) Whatever, Ill take the title of "Best Cook Ever" Watch out Anne, I'm coming for ya.
Let's see if I can remember how we arrived at this outfit. Started the day at church wearing black pants, sweater, under tank, bra, and undies, with a pair of ballet flats. When I got to the house with the kids after church I lost the sweater because they use the heat at their house and it was a freaking sauna. So tank and black pants bra undies barefoot. So while fixing drinks for the kids the Dr. Pepper exploded all over me. I was sticky from bra down. I took most of the drink on me but the floor got splashed a bit. So I headed to the car and grabbed a skirt out of the Goodwill drop off bag, not one single shirt in there so I raided the drawers and found this beauty of a shirt. The slides belong to the oldest kid because the floor was sticky, and now now bra or undies because they were soaked in DP!!!!!
I know that whole post was a bit psychophrenic but that is how the week went. It was a great week. (see the first line of the post again if you forgot what I said there) Here's to starting again tomorrow.

At this moment in my life I cannot afford to buy a new computer and I think this one has some quality months left, but I have to start thinking about this now. So what do you guys prefer.
The other options I am considering are the Netbook.
Finally there is the ultimate...
I am just going to have to work through it because I want to post, baby!
This morning there was no run. I missed getting out on the road but my body very much enjoyed getting to sleep in. It happens so rarely that I take advantage of it every single time I can. And tomorrow there is no sleeping in here. I am actually going to get up early and then my day is back to back, all day long. I am pretty excited about tomorrow. I get my swim workout tomorrow and get to swim with my workout buddy. I also get to eat lunch my my best friend in the whole wide world and her baby. And then we get to play some ball tomorrow night. Now if I can just manage to sell a house in there somewhere it will be an awesome day.
Last night I got to watch Biggest Loser during the time slot it was on...that never happens. I watched up until the weigh in and then I had to go to a ball game. I am fixing to start a new Biggest Loser drinking game. It's like college all over again...here are the rules.
1. Every time Ramon calls the blond girl the love of his life: drink.
2. Every time Bonnie cries: drink
3. Every time someone talks about how much they hate Anna K.: Drink
4. Every time someone says they did not come here to make friends, they came to lose weight: drink
If you just drank at those time you would be drunk in the first 15 minutes, and that would be because Bonnie was crying.
I have figured it out now. They are going to keep her around until the end. Oh, she is so on my nerves. She cries at the drop of a hat, good, bad, happy, sad. She got mad at Anna last week for trying to understand that she was upset over her husbands death and then this week she confides in Dolvette for the exact same thing. I would love for them to vote her off but it is not going to happen.
Basically I think the Biggest Loser people traveled to the future and read my blog and found out all the ones I liked and then arranged for them to be voted off week after week. I like the girl that was voted off this week (I cant remember her name) I hope she wins the marathon, and actually I will go ahead and predict that she will, and wins the whole darn game!!!!
Ok, I can get off my Biggest Loser bandwagon now, I just have to share every week.
Tomorrow is filling up quick but I hope to not only swim but get my spin session in as well. I think I am just going to fill up a few free hours tomorrow afternoon at the gym instead of going home and sitting around waiting for the ball game.
If you don't hear from me tomorrow just know I am a busy little girl.

So I did it, big purple streak right in the front of my already bleached blond hair. And I love it. The lesson to be learned though....don't dye your hair right before Halloween. Everyone thinks I have on some sort of costume. Boy will they be surprised tomorrow.
Self Portrait of the color streak, really weird picture but I cant get a good angle of the top of my own head!

I know I have been a little distant this week but I have been on home reno extravaganza this week. My house is officially for sale and I am trying to spruce up some things that I have let go in the last few years. They didn't bother me enough to fix but now that I am selling I want it to look great.
I also and on a budget of...well...nothing so I am doing everything by myself and paying nearly nothing to do it. So far I have transformed 2 rooms for under $100 bucks. Basically a can of paint and a lot of hours and patience. You know I have pictures too.
I have managed to get all this work done and still get in my workouts. I have just been doing one a day while I am trying to get all my projects finished. I figure this work has to be burning calories, if not the work the shower while trying to get this paint off my skin has GOT TO BE burning calories. I have paint from head to toe, literally. (The speck under my chin is my favorite)
Today is the only day I didn't get to workout in the morning time. We would have run but it was raining pretty hard when we got up so no running today. I'm in a dilemma for tonight, do I go workout after work or go finish my projects. Oh, I will just have to study on it for a little while longer.
Well, now you know what I have been up to this week. Maybe this weekend I can finish up everything and get back to my normal gym rat lifestyle but this week helped me prove that workout time and special projects can both be accomplished, you just have to be willing to be a little bit sleepy for a day or two.
