Day 16... **sigh**

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today was Read-Me day at my school. But, I missed it because I had to call in sick. This stomach bug is no joke! I was absolutely MISERABLE all morning, but after some meds and sleep this morning I feel better. Good thing.

School was dismissed at noon today because of severe weather threats in the area. We have had tornadoes and storms with golf ball sized hail all evening. We even had to take cover once. I am glued to the news right now... it's scary.

Around noon I just happened to remember that I was supposed to bring two desserts to my nephew's wrestling banquet tonight. Crap. SO even though I felt like ^&%(((&^%, I got up and set about making two cakes... Orange Juice Cake and Chocolate Earthquake Cake. The Orange Juice Cake ended up falling apart as I took it out of the pan, so then I had to make chess squares, because I sure as heck wasn't about to go tot he store and I had to use what I had already at home.

Let's just say that I KNOW that I've had way too many BLT's (bits, licks, and tastes). I would catch myself doing it. I did eat a hunk of the orange juice cake when it fell apart. And I am way behind on my water today - between going to the bathroom and the fact that I basically slept until noon... everything is just OFF today.

But I am not going to submit to failure. It's not too late to get it together. My calories are low, so one bite of cake isn't going to kill me. I am going to try to drink as much water as I can before bed. And now that they have CANCELLED the banquet due to the storms, I don't have to worry about being tempted with food tonight. It's been rescheduled for tomorrow, so I can wake up in the morning and plan my day accordingly.

No gym yesterday... I had to go into Nashville after school and didn't get home until 9 p.m. I did go to a great Health/Wellness seminar at my church last night that was good. More about that later.

No gym today, either. Between sickness and tornadoes... it ain't happening.

Tomorrow will be better. But today still counts. No excuses.


  1. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. Please keep safe it is nasty out there. If by any chance you are near Shelbyville, TN I would love to have a work out diet buddy.

  3. Sounds like a hard day, hope you feel better soon!

  4. I love Dr. Seuss!!!

    Hope you get to feeling better, I can totally relate, I was sick all this week. Achy joints, headache, sleepy all the time. No fun! And living close to Harrisburg isn't securing either! Hope you start to feeling better!

    Come say hi to me at

    Mallory :)

  5. Hi Hollie! I hope you are feeling better! And stay safe! :) You'll be back on track soon! Hugs to you! Kath :)

  6. I despise BLTs!!! When I'm preparing food I literally have to talk to myself out loud to prevent myself from giving in. I'll raise the spoon/fork/knife/mixer attachment to my mouth and then say, "NOPE! DON'T DO IT! They count, too!"


    Good job keeping yours down as well. :)

  7. Sometimes storms can be a blessing in disguise. That way you don't have to worry about sabotaging your weight loss plan. Drink lots of water. I swear that is a MAIN secret to losing weight.
    Keep going girl! You can do it!!!

  8. Keep it up. You're doing so, so well! I'm on a low carb journey of my own so I feel your pain!

    Come join me on my journey!

  9. Uh oh, are you falling off the band wagon?
