Baseball and Peanuts...

Go together like peanut butter and jelly.  Mmmmmm...peanut butter and jelly.

Anyway...I went to a baseball with my parents last night and indulged in a couple drinks, peanuts and a hot dog.  I was surprised by how much I wanted a beer...beer, peanuts, baseball...perfect trifecta but totally not worth the carbonation pain that would follow.  A couple pics...


My parents  :)
Dbacks lost but had a good time at the game.  The seats were awesome...13th row from the visitor's dugout.  Hands down the closest tickets I've ever had.  Thanks to Mom and Dad for the invite!

That DOES mean I didn't make it to the gym yesterday.  Between being on conference calls from 8 a.m. until I left at 2 pm, kids' homework, baths, dinner and the game...I'm feeling the need to get a good workout in.  The plan today...Spin class AND weight training if I can manage it.  Depends on if the class fills up before I can get there.  Time to start making stuff happen.  On that note...let's talk about fills.

So, my last fill was in December.  I believe it brought me to 6.5 or somewhere close in a 10 cc band.  It really didn't do a whole lot.  I probably should have gone back in February or March and gotten gotten another one but that's about the time I had my trip to ER and the other medical bills started pouring in and I simply didn't want to deal with another doctor or insurance or anything else.  Then I started playing the game that I've consistently railed against on my blog.  I don't want the doc to "yell at me" so I want to lose x number of pounds before I go in.  Ladies and gents, this is stupid.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, the docs are there to help.  If they give you a talking-to, you probably deserve it.  Pull up your big girl panties, go and take your medicine.  I've really been paying attention to how much I'm eating and how long I'm staying full and I'm due for a fill...have been due for six months at least.  The hope at this point is the doc will give me one (don't know why he wouldn't) and it'll give me that little extra push I need to finally reach my goals.  I'm also thinking of going crazy paleo...keep threatening that but now that I've got a Sprouts nearby, it may be quite a bit easier.  We shall see.

So that's all I got today.  Hope your week is off to a great start!

Can't wait to hear how your double workout goes...I know it will be great!

I'm at 6.5 in an 11cc band and thinking it's time to add more. I do the same thing as you though, I want the dr to be happy with me and don't want to feel like I'm getting "greedy" with fills or whatever. Crazy what we tell ourselves!

I have only had two fills ever and up until recently I didn't really feel like I needed one. I think I might ask for a smidge next time I go...but that isn't until October. Which really is ok with me since I am going to Chicago at the end of Sept.

Love the cute pic from the baseball game!

I think you are just the bee's knees - you are doing super fantastico with your workouts,and are pretty much rocking out. Hope your fill gets you to the green zone to get you the rest of the way! And thank you, my dear bloggy friend, for being so supportive and wonderful during my last cray-cray period. You rock! Hugs!

Get you a fill, lady! And I'm thinking about switching to Paleo instead of Keto, too. :)
