Not sure what is really going on, I did deviate yesterday because of all the stress I was feeling. I guess I just let people get to me. After I updated my blog yesterday, my father called and said he would take me later, much later to Target to get the bike. I could hear in his voice that he was lying or he had to do something with the witch before he could help me. That's the way she is, he tells her he is going to help me with something and she pulls some lame excuse outta her ass that she needs something done for her first. I royally hate that two faced bitch!! She treats my daughter, my sister and myself all like shit when my father isn't around but when he's there, she's a sweet and innocent. So, my father has no idea how she is and if we tell him he doesn't believe it. I try my best to avoid her but my father insist that I speak to her. I went by the post office just to see if a package that I was suppose to receive in May was there and they were renovating the place. They didn't have my package and the guy helping me had no clue what mailers were so I left. (I never got my weekly sales ads this week). So, I went to Target and looked for the bike. I asked for assistance and the guy that helped me wasn't very helpful. He told me he had some bikes in the back and he would go and get it for me. Well, he did bring me a bike but he brought me a men's. Then he said that was all he had. I got a raincheck just so I could get out of there. I went to Kmart afterward and there was another battle. I couldn't get anyone to help me so I asked for a raincheck as well. She couldn't give me the raincheck because they did have some in stock. I explained to her that I had already waited for someone and no one ever came. They finally got someone to help me and I settled on one. It was a bit more expensive than the one they had at Target but whatever. The next problem was getting it in the car. We finally got it in the backseat and I made a pitstop at the Farmer's Market. It wasn't very large, the selections were very few and quite expensive. I came home and started checking my email. It was almost noon when my father called to ask if I still wanted to go. Again you could hear it in his voice that he really didn't want to do this. I told him to forget about it that I had already gone. He exclaimed, "What do YOU mean you already went?" I told him I went in the car and drove to Target. He stayed silent and I just told him that they didn't have it anyway. After we hung up, I started to cry. I just felt that everyone was treating me like shit and after his phone call, I just fell apart. I just couldn't take it anymore. I went and laid on the sofa and just laid there. At around 2pm I took a small nap, then my daughter finally awoke and came out of her room. I went and laid down in my bed but didn't fall asleep. I came back to the living room and just watched tv with her. I told her about my glorious morning out but I held it together. I read a quote that Lynne on the HCG2 forum posted and that really helped. I made dinner and we just watched tv the rest of the night.

This morning I got up late. I realized that I could not ride my bike to the store as I had intended to because I didn't buy a bike lock, duh!! So I drove to Wal*Mart to get the paper. This is why I wanted the bike, to run small errands like this without wasting gas. Oh, well, good thing I have my dad's car. I came home and rode my bike around a couple of blocks. After I got around the second block I noticed that the front tire was kinda low so I had to really pedal to get back home. That took about 3 minutes but man, I could feel it in thighs!! So now I'll have to invest in a good bike tire pump and locks. I'm debating to get those bars you put on the back tire so someone can ride with you but they have to stand on them and hold onto you. I forget what they're called, I saw them at the store but don't recall what they are called. Anyway, I got back from my bike ride and watered my rosebushes, lantanas and palm trees. Now I sit here pondering what the rest of day will hold and what tomorrow brings.

I'm a bit discouraged with the scale is telling me so for the hell of it I broke out my measuring tape and was just blown away. I have lost 2 inches on my hips!!! The rest of my body parts have lost an inch but the most impressive were my hips!!! So that has cheered me up!!!

Yesterday's Menu:
B: coffee w/half & half, Splenda
L: Boca burger, chips (yes, potato chips but not the whole bag, just two handfuls, large handfuls)
D: 1/2 grapefruit, seasoned ground beef

Jennay, awwww, that made my day that you stopped by to check in on me. It makes me happy that I can make you guys laugh. Now, if we were in person, you'd probably pee yourself because I'm a lot funnier in person than in writing. Even though we are HCG, blogging buddies, I'm glad that you two have come into my life as well. Did you say PIZZA!!!?!!! Love you guys!!!

Mary, woohoo! you got a new bike. And you did it without your dad's help. I know it would have been nice for him to have helped you but you showed him that you could manage without him. Sorry you don't get along with your stepmom. I am a stepmom myself so I know how it is from the other side of the picture... But after 13 years my stepkids and I get along just fine.
I hope things get better for you soon since you sound a little down. Here's some good losing vibes for a big loss tomorrow!!!!!
Love ya girl!
