What Were They Thinking?

These images are from a "fat camp" in 1938. First off, do these women look fat to you? Second, they're in freakin' high heels!

Nope, still not an 18" waist... get back to work!

Look at the scrawny legs on these women!

Makes me glad I live here and now when every one is fat... LOL I don't have to feel out of place. If I was this size back in '38 I'd be a cow! Now I'm pretty average :)

I haven't been feeling well the last couple of days. The doctor said the pain would peak at day five and boy did it ever. Last night I cried and cried. I had a migraine, my stomach felt sick and even the softest touch to my shoulders, neck or bottom of my head brought shooting pain. I didn't take a muscle relaxer because I'm worried about becoming addicted, but I was so worn out from the pain I was asleep by 11pm. I felt better when I first woke up this morning, but by 11am I was feeling sick and achy again. The computer screen is hurting my head, but I work on a computer. Even the light glare from my shiny name tag is giving my a headache. I'm hoping I feel better soon, but according to the doctor with whiplash it could be another 5 days or so :(

Monday's Measurements

I'm really slacking. It's one thing after another that keeps me from eating right and exercising and what it comes down to is I'm just not motivated. I have no healthy foods in my house that are easy to fix. I'm tired and worn out and now sore so I don't want to work out. I feel like a big loser with this blog and not the good kind of loser... lol. I basically just post my failings every day. Pay day is Thursday (hip-hip-hooray!) and I'll be going grocery shopping for the first time in four weeks. I'm planning on big-time buying fruits and veggies. But I know my hubby and I will be going out to dinner on Saturday night, so once again, one more thing to throw me off :(

Here are todays stats:

weight: 168
waist: 35 1/2
hips: 43 1/2
r thigh: 25
l thigh: 24 1/2
r arm: 14
l arm: 14 1/2

Here are my stats two weeks ago:

weight: 166
waist: 36
hips: 43
r thigh: 25
l thigh: 24 1/2
r arm: 14
l arm: 14 1/2

By looking at my food, you can see I don't eat a large amount of food, it's just the wrong kind of food. Once I can go buy fruits and veggies again that will change. I'll be able to eat more and take in less calories.

So far today (it's about 12:30) all I've eaten:

two granola bars
two string cheese
reduced fat wheat thins
already eaten 656 calories and I'm hungry!!!
I've really, really, really need to buy some good food!

Yesterdays food:
2 eggs
3 pieces bacon
5 muffins
chili made with steak
bread bowl
orange juice
about 2300 calories

Saturdays food:
reduced fat cream cheese
root beer float
hawaiian pizza
orange juice
two small pasteries
about 2500 calories

To eat less than 1700 calories I really need to cool it. One problem I'm running into is when I'm at work I'm really hungry. Then someone offers me whatever junk at the moment and I take it. In my upcoming grocery shopping I'm going to plan in food to take to work. This year has not gotten off to a very healthy start :(

I am doing ok on my sleep goal... LOL But it's just because I'm on muscle relaxers. I'm not going to take any more of them, so I need to focus on getting to bed on time. I think I'm going to plan out a breakfast and lunch menu for myself also to get me back on track!

Pics in a Poodle Skirt

I'll do my measurements in the morning. I'm sure they won't be great. My eating has kinda sucked and I haven't worked out. I doubt I'll be working out too much for several days until the fun whiplash wears off.

Weekend Update

I've been kinda off on my eating (and my blogging). I got into a minor car accident on Friday and it's been crazy ever since. I haven't been eating too bad. I've avoided pop even though I've been dying for it, but my meals haven't been that great. I'm hoping to get back on track tomorrow.
