Since I got to sleep in this morning (6am) i was lucky I didn't see a jump in weight.  I was awaken at 4am by some noise and figured it was my daughter arriving.  I didn't want to scare her so I just went back to sleep since she was just going to go to sleep anyway.  I dragged my butt out of bed at 7am and made me some coffee.  I decided to water my palm trees, wash my car and of course scour the specials and coupons for the morning.  I didn't wash my car right away so I headed to Wal*Mart to get a few things since my daughter was home.  I got home and put the ice cream away quickly then washed my car.  I was done by 10am.  I came inside, changed and made myself another cup of coffee.  I was about to sit down in the living room when I heard someone unlocking the door.  I looked and saw my daughter walking in.  I was in complete shock.  I asked her if she had gone for a walk or something and she said she was barely arriving.  I was like what?!?  I explained to her that I thought she arrived at 4am because I heard all this ruckus and noticed a item knocked over in the hallway that I thought she had knocked over when walking in the dark.  She confirmed that she hadn't been here.  WTF!!!  I asked her again because I thought she had gone to some parties last night and she said she had a change of plans and didn't go so she just came home this morning.  So I went and checked her bedroom, no one in there.  I told her they probably left when I went to the store.  Freaky!!!!  Needless to say, I'm well stocked again in more razors now even in men's!!  I can use a new razor every week for at least 2 years LOL!!  I apparently am feeling much better than I have all week because I did have some new found energy.  Now if I can just channel it to clean my kitchen, LOL.

Last night I was so tired that I really didn't do anything.  I picked up a little since I thought my daughter would arrive during the dark hours but the joke was on me.  I literally passed out when I went to bed because I heard nothing until 4am when I thought she had arrived.  This is still freaking me out!! Anyway, apparently that Spanish newspaper that usually arrives on Sunday was delivered yesterday while I was at work and since my local newspaper was in the driveway, they didn't leave one for me, bastards!!  I already helped myself to both my neighbors papers since neither one picks them up.  I will have to do my 3am walk later to collect more because there are some awesome coupons today.  I will update tomorrow on my awesome steals, I mean deals!!

I already received two texts this morning wishing me a Happy Father's Day, one from my father and one from my cousin.  I'm sure they meant well since I did raise my daughter all on my own, so yes, I am her father and her mother all in one.  That's all she needs, right?

While I was at bowling yesterday, we were hit by a massive dust storm with a few sprinkles so my car looks disgusting.  My bowling wasn't that great either.  Our team captain bought nachos, how dare him.  He shared with everyone but I only had 2 bites.  I came home and couldn't tell if we had gotten rain here at my house but there were a few puddles in the street but nothing major.  I stayed up late, ate a small rotisserie chicken leg while watching my show since it was the season finale and I finally went to bed at 11pm.  I almost didn't get up this morning when I heard my alarm clock.  My brain was thinking it was Sunday already and I almost just shut the whole alarm off and went back to sleep.  Luckily I just hit the snooze button and let my brain wake up a bit more.  Work was horrible, I got two late reports and one turned into a cluster.  I finally got a lunch break and went to Whataburger!!  I got the green chile double burger.  It was hot and fresh and I enjoyed every bite!!  Of course I enjoyed some Mexican pastries in the morning as well.  I brought some doughnuts home for my daughter and another pastry for my morning coffee.  This week is going to be tough because my daughter will be here with me all week.  I came straight home after work and started to watch a bit of television, suddenly I felt sleepy so I went to my room and laid down.  I barely woke up at 5pm, just to watch the local news.  Now I have to go and clean up a bit before my daughter comes home sometime in the early morning hours.  Knowing her, she'll probably come home when I get up in the morning.  I'm anxious to see what coupons await me in the morning. I might check the Internet for a sneak peek.   I don't have much else to report since all I've done so far is sleep.

Still On Break!

Granted I'm not taking my doses, I'm still dropping slowly.  Probably because I stopped eating junk?  Oh, who am I kidding?  Today was really bad.  We had a serious call at work today so I didn't get to eat lunch and of course, I didn't pack a lunch.  Since everyone was tied up on this call, I had to stick around and answer phones and go through other paperwork while they responded. I found some cookies to snack on and later someone brought donuts!!   I came straight home after work and made myself a decent salad.  I had bagged butter blend salad mix, rotisserie chicken, baby carrots, mushrooms and bleu cheese dressing and bacon bits.  It was delish!!  I'm snacking on my "crackers".  I have bowling tonight so I probably won't eat dinner.  There is nothing P2 or P3 friendly at the bowling alley.

So last night after having some more rotisserie chicken and butter fried asparagus, I had a skinny cow chocolate wafer and a few Hershey's Bliss chocolate mint candies. Yes, only a few and not the whole bag like I would normally have.  TOM is finally leaving.  This time TOM visit brought quite a bit of pain.  Ever since I had my baby (19 years ago), I no longer have cramps maybe some mild discomfort once in a long while but this time I actually had cramps!!  I felt like I was eleven years old again.  My daughter was laughing and she was happy that I was suffering.  It turned out that TOM wasn't that bad, no heavy bleeding just a very mild one.  After feeling those cramps, I thought for sure this was going to be a bad one but it was very light.  Thank goodness for small favors.  Now that TOM is officially leaving maybe my anorexia will kick in and I can restart my sublingual drops soon.   Tomorrow will be tough because my partner that was out with a knee injury has returned and that means so will the Saturday Mexican pastries!!

Ok I've tried for the last 3 days to update my Ticker and it keeps reverting back to the old one.  At first I thought it was me and that I had just forgotten but I've done 3 times (again today) and hopefully this time it sticks!!

TOM Is Not Helping!!

After posting yesterday, I realized how severely dehydrated I was.  I knew since Saturday because I began feeling the symptoms but chalked up to being tired from my dog barking at the neighbors all night and morning.  Looking back I now see that my water intake was horrible until I got home from work, that's when I was drinking my water.  I don't have air conditioning in my car so as soon as I get in to drive home from work, I would start to feel drained.  So I stayed home from work again today.  Last night I drank a Powerade Zero.  I nearly chugged the whole thing because my body was craving it.  I drank some more water afterwards.  This morning I had one cup of coffee and started on another Powerade Zero and water. The dehydration was also adding to my back pain because my kidneys were working overtime.  So TOM and dehydration don't mix well.  I feel much better now.  So I should be good to go back to work in the morning.  I need to pack my Powerade Zero with me.  Since TOM was also wreaking havoc for me, I didn't take my dose this morning and may have to wait a bit.  I don't think the sublingual works too well for me.  I just don't feel it does the same job as the injections.  Then again, I keep forgetting my afternoon dose.  Since I've only taken 4 doses, I will still have 28 days worth.  I just give TOM a few more days and start back up.  Or I may have to wait until after the 23rd which I have a tournament to participate in.  Ugh, such decisions!!  I will be eating Paleo/P3 style for these few days.  As I stated before, I don't think the drops or sublingual are working for me.  The only reason I've lost some weight is because I'm finally losing the water retention I get from TOM and my cravings are starting to subside.  I make a trip to Costco this morning to get a few things since my coupons arrived and I had to time to look at them.  There wasn't much to really choose from but I still got a few things.  I also got a rotisserie chicken since it was already getting close to lunch time and I hadn't eaten.  I also picked up some asparagus and baby bellos.  The apples are overpriced or at least I don't remember paying that much for them last time. I came straight home and made no trip to Wal*Mart which was on my original plan as well as Albertson's but decided against both those stores for today.  I already ate some chicken and I'm still drinking my Powerade Zero and water.  Hopefully I get better and more energetic so I can get some things done around here.  I'll start off slowly, just one load of laundry. I don't want to overexert myself, LOL.

I finally get to update my Ticker today and set my new goal.  I'm finally on my first official VLCD.  I had chicken already.  I got up late because I played hooky from work today.  My back was killing me last night and this morning.  After I awoke this morning around 7:30am, or actually got out of bed, I got a surprise.  TOM has arrived.  What an unfortunate pairing of events.  That explains my back pain, my moodiness,  also my fatigue, cravings, constipation, and headaches.  I went ahead and watered my palm trees since I didn't do it on Sunday.  I went to Wal*Mart for a few things and now I regret not going grocery shopping yesterday.  I missed out on some good deals.  I didn't spend any money yesterday except for my meal but not shopping.  Oh well, most of it was off protocol foods anyway like bacon and ice cream.  I shouldn't have it in the house anyway to tempt me so it worked out in a way.  I also don't have room in my freezer or fridge so another plus for not grocery shopping.  I need to cook my chicken for dinner and tomorrow's lunch.  Actually it will be more than that because I need to remember I can only 100gm of it.  This is all I have to report this morning.

I know it looks like a had a massive load yesterday but it's only because I had to weigh myself at 4am!!  I didn't eat all day at work because everyone kept tempting me with ideas so I figured I would have one more day of enjoyment.  I had Grandy's chicken fried steak platter for lunch and dinner.  I figured it would be my last hoorah before I really have to settle into VLCD.  I also got a cinnamon roll.  As I was driving home, I stopped my a local sandwich shop to get a Cinnabon!!  Of course my server had to tempt me even more by asking if I wanted pecans.  How was I suppose to say no to that.  Looks like she drizzled some caramel sauce on it too!!  She must have know I was starting VLCD.  I arrived home and devoured my food and fell into a food coma.  Which explains why I'm posting so late.  I did ask for 3 sides which were mashed potatoes, green beans and fried okra!!  Yes I ate my cinnamon roll from Grandy's after that meal then slipped into my coma.  When I finally awoke, I polished off the Cinnabon with coffee.  Now, I drink lots and lots of water.  I didn't make it to the grocery store today and I probably won't.  Doesn't matter, I don't have room in my fridge for anything anyway.

I promise tomorrow will be my official VLCD.

Ugh, what a night!!  I went to bed somewhat earlier.  I was texting with my daughter.  At around 2am I awoke because my stomach was upset.  I drank some water and my mouth was extremely dry.  I laid back down and awoke again at 3am.  I tossed and turned for about an hour so I finally got up and walked the neighborhood, collecting papers.  I didn't want that many but since the two that I picked up yesterday didn't have coupons, I didn't want to chance it.  I just went down my street and came home.  I drank some more water and I actually broke a sweat even though I was trying to walk slow because I didn't want to put my tennis shoes on.  Usually I walk down three streets but these coupons weren't that great except for my almond milk.  I don't have room in my fridge so I don't need that many coupons.  I found about 10 papers so that was good.  I managed to fall back asleep around 5-5:30 and dragged myself out of bed around 8.  I felt so groggy and unbalanced.  Must have been from all the junk I ate yesterday and the lousy sleep I got.  I haven't been loading like I normally do, just enjoying forbidden foods that I will not see for quite some time.  I haven't done much today but organize recyclables but was too lazy to actually go to the recycling center to cash them in.  I did call a few places but the rate was the same at most places, one place offered less so I won't be going there.  I did find a business close to my workplace but I'd be embarrassed to show up to work with my little car filled to the max with cans but I may just have to do that or wait till next Monday.  I haven't really eaten anything major today, bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, Taco Bell for lunch and dinner will be some chicken thighs.  Tomorrow is VLCD one.  Oh what fun.

I clipped coupons most of the afternoon and tried to match them up with the sales that end tomorrow, so who knows what time I'll get home tomorrow.

I've been enjoying just a bit too much eating freedom.  Since I knew I was going to start my drops today, I said, "what the hell!"  I ate bean dip with Frito's, ice cream, chips and who knows what else.  The bean dip got to to me though.  I did wake up swollen this morning so I know it was the Frito's.

I tried to get up early today but 6:40am was what I could manage.  I got my paper to check the coupons and they weren't that great.  I headed to Target to check out what they had and almost everything was a dollar more than at Wal*Mart.  I found the Softsoap that they had dropped the price on but my coupons expired on the 8th, dammit!!  Oh well.  I bought some deodorant and some Pretzel Chips that they had on clearance. While I was checking out, I realized that I didn't have my debit card.  Luckily I had cash on me.  I stopped at Walgreen's but they didn't have the Gain dish detergent scent I was looking for, neither did Target.  I came home and dropped off what I bought at Target and picked up my debit card.  I went to the Super Target to check for my oatmeal that I had coupons for.  They were 20 cents less here than at Albertson's.  I got some more deodorants.  I drove to Wal*Mart and got some razors, Gain dish soap and a tank top.  This Wal*Mart was completely out of the mascara I was looking for so I had to drive to another Super Wal*Mart.  This one had what I was looking for.  I got some more razors and deodorants.  The cashier advised me that they don't limit coupons even if the coupon states there's a limit.  I forgot I had just printed their coupon policy and it states exactly that and they'll give you money back if the coupon is of higher value than the item.  Cool, right?  I came home after that trip and starting clipping more coupons.  I decided to go back to Wal*Mart because I only had 4 coupons left for the deodorants when I thought I had a lot more but they were just stuck to others, also to return that saddle soap I bought that was too expensive.  I got more deodorant and razors.  I am going to have the smoothest legs and armpits for the rest of my life, LOL.  I also bought some frozen french toast sandwiches from a popular restaurant chain, to enjoy the next couple of days.  Needless to say, I finally mixed my drops at around 2pm today.  I took my dose so now I have to remember to dose again later.  I'm going to have to set an alarm to remind me to take them in the afternoon.  I mixed mine with raspberry vodka and sodium chloride.  I know they've changed the rules about using alcohol but its what I had and I still had ampules of the sodium chloride. I think I'm ready for P2 again.  I'm trying not to do a heavy load but just enjoy some foods I know I won't be able to have for the next 30 days and 3 weeks of P3.  Of course after I took my dose, I lost my appetite which I do like but not on the first day, rather that I worked on the third day and beyond, LOL.  I'm just praying that I get back to LIW quickly so I can start losing real weight again.

R3P4D11 What A Start To The Weekend

R3 Total Loss to Date: -11.6lbs

Yesterday was very eventful.  I had Whataburger for breakfast.  I had the green chile burger combo then after I got home, I had an ice cream.  I took a nap then headed out to the bowling alley.  I was planning on eating there but it got too late.  I did very good my second game, I bowled a 255!!  I believe that is my highest score ever.  After I arrived home, I saw that my "new" neighbors were gathered in their driveway.  My dog kept barking at them and she barked all night so I got no sleep until 3am.  I had to wake up in less than an hour.  I asked if I could leave work early and I did.  I went to Kmart to get some more deodorant with my doubled coupons.  I counted the coupons I have for the deodorants and I still have about 18 of them.  Sheesh!!  I drove to the Tractor Supply Store and bought my rabbit a larger water bottle.  After I arrived home, I changed and went outside to see what the neighbors had done.  I found beer cans that they had thrown at my dog, those sons of bitches!!  I threw one back and kept the rest to sell.  They threw limes too but I threw those back in their yard.  These people are disrespectful and are constantly throwing their trash in my yard and they've only been there a week.  They are nothing but a bunch of low lives and they are going to make the next year unbearable.  I just hope they didn't buy the house and are just renting so they'll leave soon.  I took a nap after cleaning their mess up and now I sit here debating what to eat.  I had a bagel and mixed berry cream cheese after my nap, but I need something more substantial.  I will hopefully grill these.  The neighbors across the street are going to have a birthday party later, so I'll have to contend with that mess later.  I really feel that I should move because of these people and I have done too much to this house to have to leave on their account.  I need some much needed positive mantra to come my way and get these people out of here.

Oh yeah, I should be mixing my drops tonight, and hopefully I remember to start them in the morning, LOL!  I'll just enjoy 2 more days of eating freedom.

R3P4D9 What A Day

Round 3 Phase 3 Day 9
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8

Today's LOSS/GAIN: +0.6lb
R3 Total Loss to Date: -10.4lbs

If my goal was to gain weight back ASAP, I am succeeding LOL! I have been eating kinda freely plus I think TOM is lurking in the shadows so that's not helping with cravings.  I must admit I wasn't ready to tell you about everything I ate yesterday but here it is.  I had steak, scalloped potatoes, potato salad, chile con queso, tostadas, Doritos, broccoli salad, cream cheese green chile corn and bowl cake.  I was stuffed.  After I took my daughter home and I finally arrived home, I posted and fell asleep, well, it was more of a food coma that I slipped into.  So that I only gained 0.6 pounds is crazy.  I'm sure tomorrow morning's weight will reflect the true weight of all that I ate.  After I arrived at work this morning, I raided the kitchen and only found grilled chicken and some leftover sides.  I only served myself the chicken, scalloped potatoes and ranch style beans.  It took me about 3 hours to eat it all.  I even ate some coffee cake.  After work I went to Kmart and what a mess that was.  I wanted to redeem my coupon for my free Oreos with my $25.00 purchase and it would not take the coupon.  It was the first one she scanned!!  Then she tried to tell me that I could only use one for my deodorants and I had to point it out to her that it stated 4 like coupons in one transaction.  I had to go to customer service and I was there for what felt like half and hour.  The manager finally got it working but I was mad because she wouldn't let me take the double stuffed Oreos even though the coupon stated different sizes.  Whatever!!  I just wanted to get the hell out of there already.  My deodorant coupons expire on Sunday so I am trying to use them up.  Since Kmart is doubling the coupons, my deodorants are costing me 79 cents.  I will put up the register not cooperating as long as I get my double coupons.  I finally arrived home and again, I'm exhausted.  Today is trash day so I will have to do that.

As much as I hate to do this, I found another home for my Labrador.  I don't really want to give her up but I just feel bad for her that I can't spend as much time with her as I like and that I can not have her indoors.  I need Cesar Milan to help me train her to get along with my cats but I can not afford him.  I've tried myself but I lose patience very quickly.  I think at this point, it may be better if I just find her a new home.  A coworker is willing to take her but it will be very difficult for me.  Especially because I will have stipulations but I know he won't follow them.

R3P4D8 Annual BBQ Done!!

Round 3 Phase 4 Day 8
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8
Yesterday's Wt: 163.4
Today's Wt: 163.8
Today's LOSS/GAIN: +0.4lb
R3 Total Loss to Date: -11 lbs

Hello Peeps!!  I didn't have a chance to post yesterday since I was getting ready for our annual  work BBQ. I wanted to make sure I had everything I wanted to take ready and packed.  Everything went well.

Sadly, I have been making some poor menu selections especially since my daughter was home with me.  I took her back today.  I know that is no excuse for eating poorly but as of tomorrow, I will start P2 again or maybe Friday or Saturday or Sunday.  I haven't mixed my drops so that may be a slight delay.

Yesterday I weighed the same as Monday even for weighing in at 4am.  Today it was slightly higher because I ate late and I ate crap like popcorn, ice cream, bologna sandwich, toasted bagel with mixed berry cream cheese, yum, and other unhealthy junk.  I noticed that after I ate the popcorn, my mouth and part of my throat were itching on the inside.  I'll take that as a sign that I'm allergic to corn because today I had some canned corn and my mouth and throat became itchy again.  Not severely, just bothersome and notable.  I really don't have much to report really because I've just been spending time with my daughter, well actually, cooking for my daughter and just talking.  We've stayed up late and just watched movies and get caught up with each other's business.

Today at work, at around 6 am, a postal worker dropped off two adorable puppies.  One was a dark tan and the other a light tan.  I named them Mocha and Cappuccino.  I believe they were both males.  They were very young but they got along great and were a couple of show offs.  By 10am, we had them both adopted.  I wanted to keep them but luckily they found homes elsewhere.

Can you believe I don't have any coupon stories?  Actually I did go to Albertson's yesterday to buy some more bacon and get my free eggs along with some bagged salad mix that was on sale 2 for $5 minus a $2 coupon from their monthly store special ad.  That was basically it.  Hopefully when I get back on P2, I'll be able to think better, not be so tired and post better thoughts and insights.

R3P4D6 Whoop There It Is!

Round 3 Phase 4 Day 6
Starting Weight on 03/26/2012: 174.8

R3 Total Loss to Date: -11.4lbs

There it is, the weight number I was expecting yesterday but it showed up today.  I looked at myself in the mirror this morning and I could see my eyes were puffy.  Not sure if it was allergies or just water retention.  I sleep in today till about 8:30am, I was just exhausted from Saturday and having to get up early yesterday.  I'm not as young as I used to be so to recover from a night of drinking takes longer now.  So after I got up, I had a cup of coffee, dressed and put my "eyes" on. (I don't leave the house without eyeliner and mascara now).  I headed to Wal*Mart with my coupons and realized after parking that I had forgotten an item that I was going to return.  Oh well, just another trip later in the week.  I had coupons for bottled water, Cover Girl mascara, BBQ sauce and yes more razors. I bought some Laughing Cow cream cheeses that are new.  I bought the cinnamon cream and strawberries and cream flavors.  I also bought some mixed berry cream cheese and some bagels for my daughter. I checked out and came home.  I began putting everything away and I ended up dropping some eggs because I thought the carton was empty so luckily they didn't break completely in half.  So guess what I had for breakfast.  I cooked up some turkey bacon and the three eggs, scrambled of course.  I also toasted an English muffin and applied a wedge of the Laughing Cow cinnamon cream.  I quickly devoured my eggs and bacon, then simply enjoyed the English muffin.  Oh my goodness, that was delicious.  I love cinnamon so this was perfect.  After I ate my cat was staring at something outside and I couldn't see anything.  Finally a yellow Lab emerged and I realized that it was my "new" neighbors dog.  I went outside and called to her and she came to.  I rang their doorbell to advise them but no one came to the door.  I just put her in the backyard.  I wanted to explain to them that animal control drives up and down this neighborhood almost everyday so I wanted to warn them.  I felt bad for the dog because she doesn't know the area and I was afraid she would get lost, hit by a car or picked up.  This has been my adventure for the morning and now I must go do laundry.

Just a couple more days and I'm back on P2!!  I'm actually getting nervous, isn't that funny? I'm not to worried about the weight I gained overnight or over the weekend because I know that once I start P2, all that weight will drop in the first 48 to 72 hours of VLCD.

Sorry my peeps, I know y'all were anxiously awaiting my post yesterday, LOL!!  I didn't get to blog yesterday because I was in a bowling tournament all day.  I got up early, even though I got to sleep in, and stopped by Dollar General to check for my Palmolive to no avail.  I headed straight to Ft. Bliss after that and arrived at 9:15am.  I ordered breakfast there.  I ordered bacon and eggs and it cost me $3.95.  I thought it was just that, bacon and eggs.  When my order was ready it was bacon, eggs, hash browns and toast.  Not bad for that price.  I enjoyed everything on my plate except for 2 slices of toast which a teammate gladly took off my hands.  I also had a donut!!  We bowled great and took first place as a team and I made it as a finalist.  So I have two gorgeous trophies.  They Keglers that sponsored the tournament also fed us.  We had some type of pasta, I think it was suppose to be lasagna, a breadstick and salad.  There was also a cookie for dessert.  I ate everything but the cookie.  We were also given a pitcher of beer for free.  I didn't want to drink but once I had the taste, I couldn't stop.  Afterwards, we went over to a fellow Kegler's house because it was her birthday and her husband was nice enough to invite us.  While we were there, they ordered pizza.  I had 2 slices and more beer.  I didn't arrive home until 1 am.  I had to get up early today for our Kegler meeting.  When I got on the scale I was expecting a huge number and I got a surprise instead.  Same weight as yesterday, so tomorrow will be the shocker because I am already feeling bloated, swollen and puffy.  After I got up, I watered my palm trees, changed and headed to Wal*Mart before my meeting to get newspapers for the coupons.  There are some decent coupons for the dog food but other than that, nothing really that exciting for me.  Guess that is a good thing so I can control my spending for this month.  While I was attending my meeting at the bowling alley, my daughter text me that she had arrived and was waiting for me.  She decided to take the bus even though I offered to pick her up.  I think she just wanted to be independent and get there on her own.  Luckily we didn't have to bowl since hardly anyone showed up.  After leaving the bowling alley, I saw a semi truck advertising 20 ribeyes for $25.  I immediately pulled into the parking lot.  I had seen them there last week thinking that they were just here for the Memorial Day weekend and I didn't stop in.  They had other packages but I have no room in my freezer!!  The beef box they had contained filet mignons, T-bone steaks, steak burger patties, ribeyes and other cuts all for $189.  He said if you bought it he would throw in 2 boxes of ribeyes free.  That was a great deal but I have no room in my freezer.  They are Omaha steaks and they were frozen so it wasn't like he was just selling packaged meat from the semi in dark alley wearing a trenchcoat, LOL.  I would have liked to have bought that box but nowhere to store it.  Oh well.  My daughter and I came home, I offered her to get something to eat but she said she was tired and just wanted to come home.  After we arrived, she decided she was hungry so I cooked up some bacon and eggs.  She decided she didn't want eggs but I made some for myself and 2 slices of toast.  After we ate, we decided it was time for a nap.  She's still asleep.  Now I have to figure out what we are going to eat for dinner while I try and rehydrate myself.  Ribeyes??

Duh, my 3 weeks of P3 are done and I should be in P4.  We all know I haven't been sticking to P3 like I should but I'd rather eat as if I was still in P3 with my occasional cheats.  It works better for me for maintaining.  I just have a few days left and I'll be back on P2.  I'm considering this a planned interruption rather than a completed round since I'm hoping to do sublingual.

After I finished my blog entry yesterday, I went and laid down for a nap.  I must have slept deeply because I awoke thinking I was late for work because of all the light I was seeing.  After a few seconds, I realized I was taking a nap and fell back asleep without a problem.  I finally dragged myself out of bed around 5:30pm because I realized I had missed the local news and I still hadn't eaten dinner.  I started to cook my steak along with some Brussels sprouts and mushrooms.  I ate all my vegetables and about half of the steak.  Later I enjoyed a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter.  The bump in weight was because I had eaten rather late and weighed in at 4am.  I did weigh myself when I arrived home at 10:30am, and I was at yesterday's weight.  So since I get to sleep in tomorrow, I should see some better numbers unless I indulge in some cheat foods today.  I'm not sure if my daughter is coming home today or not, she was still debating last time we text.  I only worked half a day today so I left work at 9am.  I headed to the Tractor Supply Store to get my rabbit a larger water bottle however, they were completely out.  They may get some on Tuesday.  I did find some saddle soap and it was a pretty large tin, 12 oz. for $4.99.  That's pretty good since the one I bought at Wal*Mart was $5.25 for only 3.2 oz., so guess what I'm returning on Sunday or Monday.  I would do it tomorrow but I have a bowling tournament on base and that will be all day.  So after I went to the Tractor Supply Store, I went to Walgreen's to get my Merlot night cream with the free sample of moisturizer.  I thought it was eye cream, darn. I tried to pay with my register rewards but the cashier was kinda dumb.  I couldn't go to another Walgreen's because this store was the only one with the free sample.  She jipped me on one of my register rewards but I was too tired to argue with her.  Then I headed to Albertson's and that damn place was packed for 10am!!  I got my free eggs with a purchase of the bacon and a few other things that were on my list.  I came straight home because I also bought some ice cream, LOL. I put everything away as soon as I got home, changed and began cooking my brunch.  I had left over steak, so I cooked some bacon and 3 eggs over easy.  Now I sit here enjoying a Fat Boy and typing.  Luckily its early so I should be able to digest this.  Now I debate whether to take a nap, hands down the nap will win!!!  I'm still debating dinner, salmon patties or tacos.
