McFatty Monday - Do Over

Repeat of Week #3....

Usually life is busy like all the time. Especially when you have a toddler that goes 100 miles a minute, writes on walls (yes, a new thing), and tests you every minute. Life shouldn't get in the way of my health goals, it should all encompass itself. Anyway, last week was a train wreck and I failed miserably. 

Work... I work a job that requires lot's of overtime. I'm not complaining, but 12 hours a day in front of a computer processing and analyzing data can be rough for more than a week. Last week we had a big volume push where we all had to buckle down and contribute some significant overtime hours. I'm not complaining, because money is money right. I love my job and I'm glad I have one. 

From a health stand point, those weeks and overtime hours are hard. I mean hard. I cracked and crumbled. I was drinking endless cups of coffee... and the devil itself and my weakest encounter.. the can of Red Bull. We don't need to go into details on how much red bull I drank last week. Ok, if you must know.... around like 8 or 9 cans last week. I'm not talking the small can's either. Some days they were 16 ounces and other's 12 ounces.  

And guess what I felt like shit. I had the shakes, stomach aches, and flat out just tired and couldn't even function or talk. There are several alternatives to fuel my body, but hey red bull on the way to work seem so much more easier. and it was. 

We have more overtime this week, and I can't do that again. 

I minor hicup in my success.. but I'm moving forward and starting over. New goals. 

Weight to Loose: 60 pounds

Weight left: 59 pounds

* I actually lost a pound.. meh! *


10 Pounds by March 10th, 2011

20 pounds: (March 25th, 2011) Reward: Hair cut and color

30 Pounds (New outfit for summer)

Ok, I really need your help and support this week to help myself overcome the red bull and coffee while I'm working like a bee this week. Please link up with me if you would like to journey with me.

No was replaced with ok, ok!

Mack learned the word "No" and fully understood it's meaning. I was told no before I said anything. I finally said one day, that we don't say "no" to people. Then, I was the bad person. I put her in time out every time she said the word "No"

I think it might have worked. Now, when I ask her do something or tell her not to be doing something. 

She responds.. Ok, Ok! Kinda like she is saying, "ok, sheesh, I get you lady" 

Anyway, Mom-1 Mack-0 on this one.

Why Do I live here?

Lake Tahoe, Donner party, Snow, Wind, White out, power outages. Anyone, ever wonder why the Donner Party died? I live 10 minutes from Donner Summit and 2 miles from where they believe the Donner Party camped. 

When we get snow storms of 4-7 feet of snow fall and winds gusting over 100 MPH, you think, no wonder those people died and considered eating themselves. I mean with a proper shelter and a place to keep you warm, no wonder those people died. I mean look at just my drive home.

This is the Freeway on Donner Summit

As I was driving in white out conditions last night and unable to get home in a timely manner due to car pile ups, freeway being closed and just stupid asses on the road. My Friend called me. She asked why do I like living up here. 

Hmmm.. I actually enjoy driving in the snow. I don't mind shoveling and I love to enjoy the snow and do winter activities such as snowmobiling and snowboarding. The fact we get 4 feet of snow in 2 days doesn't stop me from going to work, have to be there and not be late, and going to the store, or appointments or taking mack to preschool. It's life up here and there is no difference to me between 4 or 7 feet of snow. Life still goes on up here. 

Here are a couple of photos from the drive home. Ya, I used my camera on my phone while driving... shhh don't tell anyone. 
White out! Driving conditions

Snow finally returns to Lake Tahoe, CA

It's been a solid 2 months of 40-50 degree weather and sun. Just before christmas we had around 5 feet of snow  at our house. Due to the warm weather and lack of snow from the snow gods for 2 freaking months. We no longer had any snow in our front yard until last night.

Lake Tahoe, CA was showered upon by the snow gods of 2-3 feet of fresh POW! It's about farking time. This morning I woke up at around 6am and left the house at 7amish. I got to work 5 minutes late and I live freaking 9 minutes away. It was slow going and lot's of plow trucks and such on the road. Not to mention the people that cannot drive in the snow. I hate to say it, but out-of-towners (flatlander's we like to call you). If you cannot drive in the snow stay home and off the roads... please!

Now we have snow in the forecast for the next 8 days. Awesome. I'm skipping the gym today since I have so much snow at home to shovel. I'm thinking that will be a better work out then going to the gym today on my lunch.

V-Day Baking Goodness

As promised here are the cookies and cupcakes that I made for Mack's preschool V-Day party. Sugar cookie hearts and cupcakes. I slaved in the kitchen for 4 hours straight with leg cramps and unable to enjoy any of them. It was a hard task.
