Day 5 – Successes & Failures

I had a bit of cheese yesterday. I had the calories for it, I was still under.  I had hot cocoa today with lunch, 2 servings, but I’ve got the calories for that too.  What I didn’t have calories for was the Rice Krispies Treat and Hershey bar that I got from the vending machine. …

Day 4 – Weightless

My scale is broken, so I wasn’t able to weigh myself.  I’d like to think I’m down to 318, or even lower, but considering how I cheated a bit yesterday it’s probably a good thing I couldn’t weigh myself. I ordered a new scale. It’s a fancy bluetooth one that will send my weight right…

Day 3 – 319 Pounds (I feel really good)

I celebrated a bit today. A coworker brought in this magical chocolate peanut butter powder, 50 calories for 2 tablespoons, you mix it with water until it makes the consistency of a good spread, then use it instead of peanut butter. I had a bit on a piece of honey wheat lite bread and it…

Day 2 – 321 pounds

I wrote yesterday about how reading Penn’s book over the weekend inspired me, and it did inspire me a great deal.  While I don’t plan to follow his crazy diet, a lot of what he wrote really spoke to me. One thing from the book that is on my mind today after yesterday’s success: Hunger…

CrayRay’s Crazy Potato Diet

Over the weekend I read Penn Jillette’s book about his weight loss, and it was a great read.   From the gist of it, the diet is basically eating nothing but plain potatoes for two weeks and then eating nothing but whole plants for the rest of your life (with some exceptions), along with contrast…

My take on Tarot

I called myself a witch or wiccan for many years, off and on from around 2000 until 2-3 years ago, not long after I moved down south.  I say I called myself one, but not that I was one, because I never really embraced it.  All I really wanted was the attention that came with…

People on the interned are Jerks.

I was going to write a beautiful post about my recent wow-RP adventures with my new guild, complete with pictures of a few events and my character who I’ve grown quite attached to. Instead though, I think I will rant for a while in response to my current mood. That mood is annoyed, and the…

Something Cheesy & Inspirational Goes Here.

It seems like a cycle I can’t break. Last week I decided to try again, and today was to be the first day. Well, that wen’t remarkably unwell. It started with the company meeting where I had a sausage biscuit from Chick-Fil-A, (provided by the company, a nice gesture). Then at lunch I had my…

It’s Time for Joy to put Sadness in Time Out.

You know, the kind of life I want for myself has never be ambitious.   While I have become more minimalist the past couple of years, I’ve never really wanted a six figure income and a mansion.  Sure I used to daydream about living in a castle, but what Fantasy lover didn’t? Realistically though I’ve…

How do you break the cycle?

Time and time again I attempt to improve, to eat healthy, to engage in activities I used to love, to save money and pay off my credit card, to be a better person, to make something of my life beyond sitting in front of a screen binging both Netflix and Food. Last night, as I…

Class & Guild Brainstorming!

After banging my head repeatedly against the harsh stone edifice of the Mage Tower Guardian Druid challenge with naught but gruesome failure I became a little depressed and disillusioned. I was almost ready to give up on WoW completely after such a soul-crushing defeat. I got over it. A few small factors added up to…

Tiny House Dream Update!

I was thrilled when I learned that the county I currently live in only had a 390 Square Foot rule for homes, but I became a little dismayed to find that land in the county is more expensive than I would like.  If I put the county I live into zillow and search the cheapest…
