CAT Scan Time Again!

Good Evening Folks!  I don't know about y'all but I have spent yet another week of test!  Medical test that is and this one was my most interesting one yet.  This is the first time Ive had to prep the night before with what can only be the grossest drink in the entire world.  It was a creamy white drink that taste like poop!  It looked like milk, smelled like berries and tasted like poop!

No drinking it out of a wine glass does not make it taste better!!!

I had the test done and it was easy as cake.  It took 15 minutes and all I had to do was lay there.  I hope to know something this time...I just want this pain to go away.

I have not worked out this week because I was wanting to know more about "The Area" but next week I'm back at the gym.  I go as much as I can until it hurts too bad and take a week or two off and then start the cycle again.  I just hope this time they can tell me how to make it stop hurting!

I know y'all are ready for me to know what it wrong so that I will stop talking about it...trust me...I'm ready for that too.

Now I must sleep!  Night folks!

Motivation: Just in Time

Ive tried to be really honest with the fact that my weight has gone up, and my motivation to lose has been dwindling.  Well that has changed...just in time.  I was talking with my niece when she was home for Thanksgiving and we talked about running a few races that are some of our favorites.   Then all the stars aligned and I got a call from my college roommate and one of my besties in the whole wide world and she asked me to be in her wedding.


 So now I have a wedding in the future, and I only need to lose about 160 lbs to be ready for that, but I have several races and such that I have signed up for to keep me on track leading up to her big day!

Officially Registered!!!!

 So now I am trying to get things back on track right at the holidays, and I cant think of a better time.  Eat good now and just in time for those New Year's Resolutions I'll already be in the right frame of mind.

Ive got my first 3 months planned out already, some good detox and clean eating.  I'm hoping that will help with my "Stomach/Heart/Lung/Chest" problem.  On that note this week I am having another CT scan to look a little closer.  Hopefully we can have a solution soon and I can get back to feeling 100%.  Right now I hurt so bad it is really hard to workout.



I have also decided that my 3 months at D1 will be ending at 3 months.  I love this gym but I need to workout on my schedule.  They have organized classes which are amazing but I also have a new job that I am trying to work my way up in and I cannot leave at exactly 5 or exactly 6, I'm staying until I'm done and they moved the morning class up earlier.  I just need to workout anytime that I can get there not at the exact start time.  I knew this 3 month trial was just that and now I know, maybe when my schedule is more permanent I can go back to D1.  Ill finish up my 3 and then start shopping around again.

 Anyway....now you know of my new motivation and I'm happy to share it with you.  Here's hoping that this motivations sticks especially since the wedding is already scheduled!

Black Friday 2012



Getting warmed up before the night begun.  I hate that it started so early this year, I wasn't even able to get a mini nap before we were off to our meeting.  But I did get a few minutes to lay down and warm up my feet and digest a little from Thanksgiving dinner.

 
 
We had our before hand meeting but no one was really as ready as we needed to be.  So instead of making out list we ate a really good snack and did the best we could on our lists.

Getting ready for the first stop and the most intense stop...
 
 
We were running a little bit behind so we got dropped at the door but it was no trouble finding a parking spot!
 
Amazingly, the rest of the day we got spaces in the first 3 spots the rest of the day.

This girl and I champed it out at the first stop.  I got sheets and small appliances and she had movies and games.  Two really hard sections and we got everything we needed!

We got all of out 8pm door busters and then in the line for the 10pm door busters.  Again, not my favorite way of doing it but I did get all I needed this way.  I want the day to start on Friday!!!!  You know "Black Friday!"
We hung out on the can good isle for 2 hours taking selfies and texting the other girls waiting in line.

As I sat on the can goods isle I met the only guy in the free world that would grocery shop on Black Friday.  He was so pissed off that he had to try and get around all the crazy shoppers.


I had to post this to show you how close this lady was behind me...seriously, your buggy is touching me, "Back off Lady!!!!"
 
The other girl started sending us pics when Sister ? made it to the party...she was late as usual.
 
Texting and Tweeting....that's how we roll!
 
Poor Sister ?  She spilt something in every single store we went to.  She had to throw away her bag and even got the emergency cone pulled out at Wal-Mart.


 
Car photos!

Yes the college student got really tired and her feet hurt so in an effort to take care of her, her mama let her crawl in the buggy and gave her a ride for a while.

 
Another example of Black Friday parking...

We tried to take this with us for Sister ? but we couldn't fit it in the car!

Hello Daylight!!!

This photo made the day...I don't know the last time I laughed this hard.  Sister 2 the one on the left and right really wanted to see if she could get on both sides of the panoramic picture and as you can see it was very successful.  They did this in the back of the van...hysterical laughter!
 
Between this and Glozell I have never laughed this hard.
 



Our feet hurt so bad I thought it was necessary to take a picture so you could see how bad they hurt....I had been awake for 35 hours and I thought it was a good idea.
 
We did have a repeat of the red lipstick just for Sister 2, she has gotten miles of laughter off that photo.

We did our fair share of eating!
 
This guy came down and fed us lunch, took some stuff home and even did a little bit of shopping...

Nothing But Noodles
 

3am Breakfast at IHOP
 
This girl loves her some Gigi's!
 
Nobody knows!!!!
My dinner company was crazy!!!!
Those are sleepy eyes.

This was a treat for the end of the evening...my Lover Troy!

Hahahaha, she couldn't fit behind the steering wheel.
This was my main treat to myself, a Keurig Coffee Maker, and coffee tree, and coffee cup!

 
We hit the 24 hours of shopping mark and celebrated with a little bit more food, and another group photo...
 
We tried the panoramic picture again....it was still as funny but no good picture came of this one.
 
Over all the day was a huge success, we got tons of gifts, had major laughs, and survived about 30 hours of shopping.  It took 2 days to recover.  I am just now getting pictures up because my computer is so slow, maybe I should have purchased a computer instead of these 700 thread count sheets but these new sheets are feeling pretty good on my body. 
 
I hope you all had a good Black Friday and a Happy Thanksgiving.
 
Now I have to get my burn on from all the Black Friday calories!!!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

I know many of you out there read that title and think, "oh, the holiday season!"  Not so much...I am embracing the holiday season, before my birthday and everything.  I already changed my ring tone to "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" but the most wonderful time of the year for me....BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!!





We have been celebrating Black Friday for years, and years, and years and we will blog our way through it again this year.  Ha, as I go back through the years of pictures from Black Friday it helps me see just how much weight I have gained...but I digress.

I am looking so forward to this years shopping extravaganza...the stores open earlier, which I don't like, my shirt this year is a little tight, which is just ok, and the stores already have the merchandise on the floor, which I LOVE!!!




So like every year we will blog and tweet our way through the holiday.  You can follow me here or over on Instagram or twitter @fatgirltothin and there may even be a little bit on facebook but that is not as easy to post on.  Just know that everyone on the shopping trip will have access to the blog that day so no promises on content!

I have already started getting ready, shaved my legs, waxed my eyebrows, packed up my purse with a tiny thing of deodorant and toothpaste.  Starting tomorrow night we will shop til we drop on Friday night!!!!

Once we get through this holiday I will focus again on diet, exercise and weight loss but right now Im 100% on Black Friday!

Did You Miss Me?!?!?!

I know I always say "Ill never take a break XX long again!"  Then two weeks goes by, I'm busy as crap at work, busy as crap at home, ball seasons end and new ones begin, life gets nuts!!!!  So here I am 2 weeks without posting and I figure its my blogger duty to get on here and let you guys know whats been going on.

So here goes, over the last two weeks it has gotten cold, then hot, then cold again.  The time changes which officially ruined my Wednesday night late night run, which really didn't have that much of an effect on it since I have been staying at the office past 6pm nearly every night and most nights later.

I was doing good with my early morning workouts, then I pulled "The Area" or aggravated what was already hurt.  I went to yet another doctor for another round of tests.  I had new xrays (still nothing broken), new blood work (still no H. Palori), new EKG (still not a heart problem), and a new test...Abdominal Ultrasound.  No, I'm not preggers!  There was really no chance for that but now they have looked at all my internal organs a new way.  I was told it would be one day and I would have results, its been 9 days and I have nothing.  I have called everyday, still no word.  

I have decided tomorrow I am getting an answer, like it or not,

I have also decided that I am going to have to change the name of "The Area" cause it makes it sound like I'm taking about "My Area" and I am not.  So I'm working on a new name for it.


Just in case you are new to the blog this is "The Area" soon to be something else (Ill take suggestions)  It has hurt for almost a year now.  The pain has been every where from a 3-9 on the pain scale an no one can tell me why!

On top of the Area hurting I also got a cold which really was bad timing but at least I got it all over with at once.  I'm finally feeling better and ready to get back to the gym.

I'm still crazy busy at work, and basketball season has begun...oh yeah and a little thing called the holidays!!!!  But I will do better!  I promise, like always!!!
