Sometimes I think too much. What did that mean? I dunno. It just came to me as I typed. AWKWARD!!!!! Alright, so anyway here is your next installment of “Blast from the Past” :
Original Stardate: 7/26/2010
Today turned out to be pretty good. Although stress at work is never ending since we are shorthanded and we are not able to hire anyone at this time. I’m trying to deal with stressful situations with a calm cool head. I don’t want anything to interfere with WOE.
I spent some time on the phone trying to explain to one of my sisters about (ZC). I passed on some info that I learned from here. I gave her the name of this site and told her to take her time and read. I told her that it was not a quick fix and that it was a WOE. Sometimes it hard to convince someone about (ZC) when they still think SAD is a healthy choice. My sister understands that LC and VLC is better than SAD, but I think in the back of her mind she believes (ZC) is unhealthy.
I need to be the example for my family and friends. If I fail I not only failed myself I would be failing those who might give (ZC) a chance if I succeed.
Original Stardate: 7/26/2010
As of today I have been on (ZC) for five weeks. Last week was a bit of a rough ride. It was mainly my fault. I have to remind myself: “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” I’m optimistic that week six is going to be much better. I went up and down on the scale all week. I’m basically at the same weight as at the end of week four.
Although I have a small steak stash, I’m going to do Ground Chuck all this week. I continue to have no cravings for carbs, no cheats and an overall great prospective for (ZC). Tummy troubles are at the lowest ever (Yeah).
I’m a little tired today; I had to do some yard work yesterday. I waited till late evening to do the work because of the heat. It was still hot. I kind of pushed myself hard to finish as soon as possible.
I hope everyone has a great day.

Today's Menu: Ground Chuck, H2O
A rough ride indeed! 5 weeks down and already in trouble? Possible……… or maybe not. Up and down the scale. Not good right? WRONG! Who cares? Tummy troubles….not altogether gone, but almost! OK, this Rookie is facing many things at once: Stress at work, weight gain, a need to justify this new WOE to a family member, fatigue, and a little pressure. Pressure??? Yes, self-imposed pressure. Where’s The Fruit or (WTF)! Why O Why or (WOW) is this Rookie feeling pressure?
Hold on HOSS what makes you think he is feeling pressure? Glad you asked thank you very much. Because of this statement: “I need to be the example for my family and friends. If I fail I not only failed myself I would be failing those who might give (ZC) a chance if I succeed.” Jeez I did not realize until now the DEEP dedication and responsibility I felt at that time especially with such a short time on this new WOE.
OK y’all I need a little time to absorb this revelation. Sometimes I guess we should really take time to analyze our situations, but sometimes LIFE gets in the way.
Have a Healthy day my Family and Friends. Sit back, relax and EAT! No Surrender, No Retreat and Always Battle On!!!
