Teeter Totter

This is me, I'm on a weight loss teeter totter and I can't seem to get off. Somehow I continue to exist in that no man's land, where I'm not completely and totally out of control, but i'm certainly not IN control either. I. HAVE. TO. GET. IT. TOGETHER. All the way together. Not mostly together with a side of cake and french fries. Together.

It's confession time. Confessions are good for the soul, right? I hope so! So, here we go. In all honesty, I'm typing this post after I visited our company bake sale and consumed 3 coconut cookies.....and bought raffle tickets for a cake. Yeah....I have no excuses, they were just bad choices, tasty bad choices, but bad choices nonetheless. Also, last night was the first night in a week that I've cooked. We've had a lot of takeout and sandwiches. I do have a slight excuse for this. My shoulder is still killing me with no relief in sight. Some nights I just don't have it in me. The truth is, though, that some nights I do and I just haven't done it. So, in case I haven't mentioned it before, I have to get it together.

I've really noticed an interesting trend here with my out-of-controlness (haha, like that new word?). When i'm really in control eating-wise, I do better in all other aspects too. I'm better at housekeeping, exercising, working, parenting, etc. Looking around right now, I feel very overwhelmed at all that needs to be done. My house needs cleaning, body needs thinning, documents need writing, clothes need washing, grass needs cutting, etc, etc, etc. When I start to feel overwhelmed like this, I tend to shut down because I don't know where to start. I need to start. I have to get it together. Now.

The Bzzz: Tom's Wicked Fresh! Toothpaste Review

Hey all! So, things are pretty good one the weight loss front. I'm getting back into the groove, but slowly. I'm going to try really hard to post more and keep you all more up to date on the situation. I also want to expand the blog to talk about other topics. After all, there is life outside of weight loss, right?
That being said, here's a product review! I'm a Bzz agent through, which is a word of mouth program. Basically, I get to try samples of products in exchange for spreading the word about them. It's pretty cool. Right now I'm trying Tom's Wicked Fresh! toothpaste. This stuff rocks! Although I usually don't get overly excited about toothpaste, this is good stuff. It really leaves your mouth feeling clean for hours and, the best part is, it's all natural. I'm going to try to pick up the mouthwash too and the children's version for the kiddies.
