Day 11 of 365 – Kale Salad and Unruly Scale Problems

image

Another kale salad with a hard boiled egg and some blue cheese dressing. I’m still eating plenty of junk food, especially around work, but overall I’m craving it less, and getting less satisfaction when I do have it. This is seriously the only time my sugar cravings have been relatively manageable in about two years.

Other than that, my waist was at 34.5″ today, and I’m thinking my scale may have gone. It was registering about 214 – 215 lbs this morning, and I just don’t see how that’s possible aside from either an exodus of water weight, or scale failure. I’m going to see if I can compare it with any rogue scales that my parents might have packed away to get a baseline. (It drives me nuts that my Mom rarely cleans anything out, but sometimes it comes in handy, like when I’m half broke and need to avoid scale shopping if I can).

Aside from that my Fibromyalgia is kicking up due to weather changes and the fact that I’ve actually been drinking coffee (for me, it seems to be a trigger food). So, that’s been crappy, but also kind of course for this time of year.

Well, that’s all I feel like covering for now. See y’all tomorrow.

Day 11 of 365 – Kale Salad and Unruly Scale Problems

Day 8 of 365 – Onward to Week Two!

More kale in a bowl, with carrots, tomatoes and, thank the salad gods, ranch dressing, which, may be made by divine, mildly obese angels, somewhere in salad heaven, probably because they know the pain my taste buds are in.

Seriously, if kale didn’t didn’t resist spoilage so well, I would have put what I have down the disposal, and laughed manically in a fit of liberation from its bitter entanglement.

ANYWAY, 222.4 lbs on the scale today, and 35″ on my waist. Which, while slightly cringe worthy in my opinion, isn’t terribly bad considering that I’m still retaining magnificent amounts of water weight, and I ate roughly half a gallon of Death by Chocolate ice cream over the weekend (instead of candy), because Halloween.

Aside from that, I haven’t noticed any particular changes, but, I’m expecting that I’m still anywhere from a few weeks to a few months from that, if I happen to notice any changes at all.

In a whiles, Crocodiles.

Day 8 of 365 – Onward to Week Two!

Day 6 & Day 7 – All I Wanna Do is Get Some Sleep

I seriously never know where my weekends go. I mostly slept, avoided bathing, and played some delightfully modded Minecraft with my gaming buddies. I ate salad, some ice cream, and avoided weighing myself in favor of staying in bed and trying to get more sleep.

So, no weights, etc. but, here’s Saturday and Sunday’s salads.

Anyway, after a week of this, I’m convinced that given my forethought and planning, that the blog could have been named “365 Bowls of Kale.”

Aside from that, I have no further insight to bestow at this, the end of the first week of my journey.

Also, I tried to get a first week selfie in attempt to mark some sort of progress, and this was the best that I got:

There you go, half a unmakeuped face and a torso, because apparently it’s the only one that’s not blurry or an unintended boob shot without my face. Also, I dropped my phone about a million time while trying to get this.

This, this is exactly why I don’t play sports.

Laters, gators.
