Fasting, 2nd round; third day

So, my last meal was Sunday night, around 7-8 pm.
Right now, it's Wednesday, lunch time!  And yes!  I'm famished!  LOL
But, am I really hungry?  Or is it just the habit of eating that's getting to me?
Went to Wal-Mart after my walk this morning... and wow, it smells like heaven!  LOL  There's a Subway right when you walk in!!!
I want to make it all the way through tonight... well, until tomorrow morning!  I'm down to 144lbs!!!  Woohoo!  So, that's 6-8 lbs loss... depends because my weight had been fluctuating between 150-152lbs... see why I want to continue???  ha ha ha
No, it's not easy... however, it's not as hard as it was last time/the first time I fasted.
I'm thinking that if I can get through 3 days, get down to around 140 and continue with my walking, and decrease portion size, I should be able to at least hold steady there; if not lose more!  Wouldn't that be wonderful???  Yes, yes, it would!
So, yeah, I went walk (2 miles), went to Wal-Mart, and tonight, it's Trick-or-Treating since it's supposed to rain tomorrow (which is Oct. 31st).  So, all this on a really empty stomach!  And yes!  I will stash some candy away!  LOL

Friday is the day!!!  Jeremy & I leave Friday to go to New Orleans for the weekend long Voodoo Experience!  woohoo!  So excited!  We're be there with my sister, Angele, & her husband, Shane :)

Went all day without food yesterday!  Not really too hard, either!  Just had to resist tasting food as I cooked for my family!
This morning I'm down 4 to 6 lbs!  I'm 146!  Woohoo!  I say 4-6 lbs because my weight fluctuated between 150-152 recen2.

Let's Try This Again...

So, I'm going to try to fast again... had nothing to eat since last night's dinner.
Incentive?  To lose these 10 lbs I've accumulated!
We are leaving Friday morning to go to New Orleans for the weekend!  VOODOO FEST!!!  woohoo!  I'd like to be a little bit smaller by that time... even 5 lbs would be good!
I've been walking 5 days a week, about 3 miles a day, for over a month now!  And the weight isn't going anywhere! :(
My back still aches :(
Oh, I did drink a mug of coffee this morning... does that count as food?  oh well... it's a liquid, right?  I've only water since.
I just have to do this.  I barely fit any of my clothes properly!  argh!  I also started doing arm work outs as well as crunches last week after my walk.  I'm hoping all that works!

Beautiful Morning

The weather was just just lovely this morning:-)  I wore long sleeves! It's a little cool front we've got right now.

Great Day :)

I have to say that yesterday was a pretty great day :)
The kids didn't have school because the teachers had a work shop.

In the morning, I went walking and Ursula joined me.  We met up with my neighbor/walking buddy, Kelly :)  Ursula stayed for about a mile and then went home :)  Kelly & I walked our regular route and I got in over little over 3 miles :D

I took a shower; told the kids to eat and get dressed.

I brought them to ARC in Opelousas and found some clothes for Wyatt (kids' summer clothes were only a $1 each).  No costumes there.

Then, I brought them to Goodwill because I know they usually have a few costumes (Halloween coming up and all...).  Found a cute pirate dress costume!  Bought it for $5 :)   While we were looking around, a lady came up to me, introduced herself, gave me her business card, and said she'd like to photograph my kids!  As cool as that was, when I saw her name on the business card, I recognized it!  I had just seen her Instagram like 2 or so days before!!!  What are the odds?  I had seen it because my friend, Correy, had put up a pic of herself  and linked this lady's Instagram to it!  I had liked the pics too!

So, that was cool :)

In the Goodwill's parking lot, Jeremy texted me.  He tells me there's a place down the road from his work that has "Halloween Headquarters" on a banner in front of it.  So, I go!  Adventure time! :D

We spent at least an hour there!  Wyatt picked out a G.I. Joe costume... Snake Eyes, I think?  Ursula picked out a neon zebra! LOL  Too funny!  Calista wanted to be a broken doll but they didn't have all that she would have liked to do it (and they have practically everything you'd need to be anything/anyone you want to be! LOL), so, she chose this cute witch outfit... has a tiny hat and a dress that lights up (batteries included!) :D  Bought her purple and blacked striped thigh highs to go with it; just need to get her some biker shorts so her butt doesn't show if she bends over!  LOL

So, we come home.  We aren't home long before our neighbor's kid, Chase and his cousin come over and ask if they can pet the puppies.  I'm like, "sure!"  Then, they pick one up each and ask if they can bring them to show the girl's parents.  I'm like, "sure!" :D  Her mom walks over and we start talking.  She's interested in getting one.  Then her husband walks over and he's wants one too :)  They ask how much and I tell them $100 and they ask if they can come back Friday or Saturday to buy one!  I'm like, "Sure!!!" :D  They picked out the biggest male; he's fawn colored, soft, laid back, and so pretty!

So, yes, yesterday was a great day if I do say so myself! :D :D :D

Foggy, Foggy!

This morning is so foggy!
Got my 3 miles in though... yay! :-D

Walking Further...

I have a new walking buddy.  She lives up the road, in the cul-de-sac.  Her name is Kelly.  She's like 23 yrs older than me.  She was a civic's teacher.

Anyway, I've been walking with her for over a week.  :-)

Oh, after she went home Friday, I jogged a little bit back home and no pain in my shins!!!  Woohoo!
