Day 2 of 84...whoa what a day!!

So let me start off with how my day went b/c today was insane but I have some good news about the day!

I woke up at 7 am, which wouldn't be bad until you hear that I didn't go to bed until 2:30 am that morning so I could get as much writing done as possible last night.

I made brownie cookie cupcakes for my son's birthday.  He turned ten today!!  Then I had to rush and get the girls and myself dressed and ready to go to his 5th grade orientation.  I went there, got paperwork to register him and came back home.  We had construction start on our house today so I had to keep the girls entertained in my room.  I attempted doing some laundry with them but they were not very receptive to this idea at all. 

Luckily we had lunch plans with Andrew for his birthday.  I went and picked him up from his dad's and then picked up one of his good friends.  He wanted to go to Hooters.  I had the blackened fish tacos without the sauce.  They were actually pretty good and were definitely healthy...just cabbage, pico, and blackened fish on them.  :)

I had an Eggo (yep just one) waffle for breakfast.  Then for supper I had a mushroom taco with fresh Mexican cheese, cabbage, & avocado.  I drank water and only drank 1/2 of my Pepsi when we went out of lunch.  I also have ate some Wintergreen Lifesavers but that is all.

Let's see I did my challenge today for the Jamie Eason's program.  You can read more about her program here.  This program is free and posted online so you can do it on your own.  The best part is that I know that I am in bad shape and I can do it, even though it can be really hard and painful, I can still do it!  I ran my mile.  I did a weigh in because I thought that it might be encouraging to others if you see where I lose/gain on a daily basis.  I was shocked when I stepped on the scale and saw a weight of 247 lbs tonight!!  Yay!!  That will make it a total of 10 lbs lost to date.  :)  I am proud of myself and I feel great too knowing that I am going to be able to get into better shape and perhaps I will be lucky enough to reach my goal weight in 84 days.   I am doing my 150 crunches before I head to bed tonight while I watch some TV.

I can't wait to hear from my readers so if you are out there, struggling and on your own weight loss journey or doing your own workout to lose weight I would love to hear from you.

I have to admit though that I was a bit discouraged at the gym.  Let's face it when I go to the gym I am fat so I sweat and I sweat a lot.  I refuse to wear nice clothes to the gym to ruin them.  I typically wear a pair of leggings and a tank top or something.  Is it pretty when all 247 lbs of me is out there for others to see?  No, does it work to help me want to do better?  Yes.  Plus it is cheap workout clothing.  I have four children and so I can not spend all of my money on clothes that I have purchased to work out in.  I would rather have nice clothes for other things in life and then have crappy cheap clothes for the gym.  I am not going to the gym to impress anyone but instead am going to better myself.

Anyways I go to the gym at 9 pm.  I do this for a couple of reasons.  One of which is that there are not a lot of younger people there.  I workout at a child free gym because this is my time to get away from my own children and frankly I do not want to be around others.  Anyways though tonight I went and there was a couple there with their two children.  One was definitely younger and one was high school aged.  Neither of these girls were thin or in good shape themselves which is sad for how young they were but both of them proceeded to make fun of my clothes that I was wearing to the gym.  I know that they were making fun of them because I am fat and you can see my bulges and bumps but I think that it is sad that two girls who are probably going to have weight problems one day judging from what they look like now would subject someone to that pain and humiliation.  I held my head high and did my workout pretending that I could not hear their rude and snide remarks but those remarks hurt.  I was tempted to turn around and say "Laugh now.  I know that I did when I was your age.  In fact when I was a cheerleader my sophomore year of college I wore a size 24" waist on my cheerleading uniform.  I made fun of fat people and now karma is kicking my ass."  That's right karma is getting me back now and it is doing one hell of a job.  I have learned my lesson and would never say anything about someone else's weight again. 

The thing about this family though was that the parents were both there with them.  The mom was laughing with them and the dad was trying to make them all be quiet.  It was pretty awful that I had to deal with this and enough that I will message the owner of the gym and tell him that the young children in the gym at night were quite disruptive to my workout.  I was not happy and am not trying to be a petty bitch but why would you let your children do that to someone?  If I heard one of my kids making fun of someone I would make them apologize to that person if they were there or I would have a long talk with them about why that is not okay.  I certainly would not sit and laugh with them at someone else's expense.  So what I must ask you is what would you in this situation.  My note to the gym owner will be very nice, asking questions about the child policy as I have four children of my own.  :)
