Ooooh so excited!!!

During a lovely chat with one of my favoritest people in the entire universe (my cousin Hannah), I popped on to Dell's website to see if they started carrying FitBits since the last time I looked. Mine went MIA ages ago and I've realized that the downword spiral of angst and yo-yoing really started once I was without it or my poor beloved BodyBugg. I know it's all psychological, but it is what it is .... and miracle of miracles, Dell has a whole bunch of activity trackers on their site now and I have a whole bunch of credit!

And I'm not getting a FitBit.

I saw that some of the options were available for immediate shipment and the FitBits wouldn't ship for one to two WEEKS. Hrmph.

So I started looking and googling and review reading and now I'm about to be the (hopefully) very proud owner of a Garmin Vivofit 3 with optional belt clip and two pretty pretty wrist band options to go with the default black!
And, of course, I've also been on ebay window shopping other band options already ☺

The preliminary estimate said that it should arrive this coming Wednesday. With the way Dell usually is with getting things to me, though, Monday or Tuesday wouldn't surprise me at all!

May so far ...

Truth be told? It's pretty much sucking out.
The whole cute little goal thingie I did?
That's been a whole lotta no.
The calendar, too, was WAY too ambitious.
I have gotten back on the recumbent bike, though ... occasionally ... and I haven't been reading instead of sleeping nearly as frequently ... and I refuse to quit in spite of the fact that my weight is still yo-yo-ing and I can't quite figure out what in feckin' hell to do to stop it.

May ..... or may not

So, it's May. I actually had this ready to post on May 1st .... at least mentally .... at least some of it.

I had the goals set up :

And then once I got my work done at work I put together a workout calendar thingie based off one of the workouts. The site used to be neilarey -- home of many nerd-themed workout awesomeness.... but now a lot of those only exist if you do a google or Pinterest search for something like "nerd workout." I've saved/printed 16 of them so far so I should be able to tweak for many a month to come!

Well, gosh.

It's pretty crazy when things work the way that they're supposed to, isn't it?
John and I have been taking our probiotics and various supplements/vitamins for just under four weeks now. I broke down and had some macaroni & cheese the other day and for the first time in eons it didn't result in me feeling like I was going to die! He's been having better luck having the occasional sandwich at school, too ... and with "going" on a more regular basis.

If the weather is decent on Saturday we're walking the mile and a half (ish) to Aldi to buy crazy things like bread.

Yep. Bread.

Sure, there are other places a lot closer with bread but Aldi has his favorite so it's worth the walk.

And tonight at work? Well, I'm all set to make lists and cheat sheets and copy recipes and such about my old friend, Weight Watchers' Simply Filling. It's been too long and my old cheats and such are currently MIA.

Besides. If I put it all in a TARDIS journal it'll mean more and will be far less likely to disappear.

Harder than I thought it would be ...

I'm doing well remembering take my vitamins, probiotics & enzymes every day. My water intake has increased. Most days I move more thanks to the weather not being as horrid. But the food? It's not easy going from constantly thinking "more fat! little to no carbs!" to "whoa! your body doesn't process fat normally! Hold off!!!"
Every time I track on MFP and then look at the little pie chart thingie for my Macros, my fat is almost always still the highest.
Tonight I'm hoping to be able to spend some time scouring thee ol' web for ideas that will let me lower the fat, stay grain-free, and not lose my mind .... while, at the same time, keeping that darling kid of mine LCHF because it's beneficial for him even if it isn't for me at this point.
