Dietbet Week 2

January 28th, 2017 at 06:39 pm

So I'm still doing well with my eating plan. DH made pancakes on Thursday, plus I had A cookie I had been given Wednesday.

Friday I struggled a little with the temptation of free donuts my boss brought in. I even googled what was the best way to freeze them. In the end I just chose to forget they were there.

I'm still not sure if loosening my plans on Thursdays is for the best. Also, after watching this video, I'm considering just saying no to sugar completely. But .. baby steps.

I'm not quite sure I believe my scale or not ... but I stepped on it this afternoon, and it showed 9lbs gone ... which is more than I need for the first round.

Cutting out soda wasn't enough - it was cutting out all my junkfood eating (and dairy and eggs.)

I haven't done so well with the 15 minutes ... although I did actually open th steamer mop and USE it this week! My dining room floor at least looked better.
I found a new app - it's called IQ. It sends you one question at a time to answer for researchers, and then pays you immediately through paypal. I've gotten one question so far, and was paid $.25 instantly. Not a huge moneymaker obviously, but so easy.

I finished a Stepbet today. I'm going to wait for payout before joining the next one. After this next one though, I may have to take a break, depending on when we do our CA roadtrip. We're talking April, but time will tell.

I got in touch with Amazon today and got things fixed. (I had siged up for prime, but didn't realize I'd been charged for Amazon cloud drive on a rarely used card. They're refunding that charge. -I'd had it free for a year after a purchase.)

I also contacted Citi about the rewards check I'd ordered for the student loan. They're forwarding my question to the right place.

I also cashed in for $207 in rewards from the Barclay card. This will be put towards the student loan.
Before I go, I thought I'd share one of my common heat sources. DH took the picture a few days ago. Please excuse the messy desk.

    That's adorable! Wink
    I was just thinking I might need to skip a Stepbet. I was going to do them continuously for a while, but we have an early April trip planned that I want to be 100% technology/screen free, and I'd be too worried that I wasn't getting my step counts but not being able to turn on my phone and check. (Plus, I think I'll have a better chance of success at staying screen-free if I don't carry my phone around with me.)

    Instead of a three dog night, it's a five cat night!

    Thanks Ceejay. Smile
    I'm not going to go screen free, but I just worry that I won't be able to get my steps in with long car rides. I'd rather not have to stress about that.

    AR - Yep, it is. Smile

    That's hysterical, too cute!

    All five cats joined you on their own? Amazing! Congrats on the 9 lbs down!! That is fantastic. I'm sure I could lose some more weight by cutting out certain foods.

  6. Kiki Says:

    You look purrrrfectly warm!

  7. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Thanks Alice. Smile
    CCF - Yes, they all got up there on their own. Usually it's only 3 or 4, but Sammy has started jumping up too ... so 5 is happening more often.

    Thanks - now if I can just keep it up. The 10% goal looks so daunting. The last time I weighed that, I lived in Texas...

    LOL Kiki Smile

    That's hilarious!!! Such a cute picture

  14. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Thanks all. Now you also know why I have so many typos in my posts - between a keyboard that doesn't go my speed and the cats ....

    Ha, love the cat party! Congrats on losing weight, that's super exciting!
