What Happened To Friday Night?

Good    ness.....

What am I doing home on a Friday night?  Absolutely nothing.  I am a 38 year old who has no social life.  And should I?  Does a 38 year old have a social life?  Apparently not.  Maybe you have to be over 40... Since 40 is the new 20.

Oh well...  anyway.  I weigh in this Tuesday.  Tuesdays are weigh in days.  SO overwhelming every week.  I don't really look forward to it either. Who wants to get on the blasted scale and will that damn thing to give you a smaller number.  Bastard!  I hate it most mornings.

Okay, so I don't really have much to say.  Not a lot going on.  Just watching Suburgatory on DVR because I think Jeremy Sisto is HOT.  And let's not forget Alan Tudyk. Yep!  Jeremy is my homeboy...

Night World.

I'm Back!

So, yeah.  Not sure what happened back there.

Okay, that's a lie.  I know exactly what happened.  It happens to all of us.  We fall down and lose our way.  But... we can always start over!

That is exactly what I did.  I started over.  Last year, I was on my way to losing 26 pounds.  Then I had to go out of town for two weeks and it was all over after that.  Since then, I have survived weeks out of town due to my job and survived one of the most stressful eating times of the year - the HOLIDAYS!

And I survived.

I even lost weight.

I am flippin awesome.  Yes, I will wait a moment while you applaud......

Okay then.

It is good to be back, to be typing away on my mini laptop about the boring life I live.  If you haven't been here in awhile, things have changed with me.  I am definitely more open about my life than I was last year.  I am DONE living for others. I am living for myself.

Hope you will stay around and journey with me.

hehehehehe.... I can't promise you won't be bored to tears.

Ready For Summer Challenge

I am totally behind on the Ready For Summer Challenge, so I hope it's okay if I am starting late!

Summer Goals:
  • Lose at least 15 pounds.
  • Wear a size 20.  I am in between a 24/22 now.
  • Start cycling.
  • Reach 14+ activity points every week.
  • Drink at least 6 glasses of water every day
Since I missed the first week, I am starting fresh with Week 2.

Here are my Week 2 goals (mini goals):
  • Lose 1 pound (WI on Thursday)
  • Walk 5 miles this week
  • Drink 6 glasses of water every day
  • I will try a new workout, but don't know what yet
My weight loss has been up and down.  I hate the roller coaster ride.  I need to get a routine down to help.

I finally finished The Age of Innocence.  So I can knock one book off of my 2012 goals.  I'm behind on some of the other goals though.  In March, I did try roasted kale chips for the first time, so now I need to find 8 other fruits/vegetables to try.  I need to find a recipe to do for April, along with a bonus recipe for the one I missed in February!

I'm behind on blogs and mine needs updated, so that is what I'm working on today.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!

O Happy Day!

I weighed in Thursday and I am so happy to report a -3.6 pound loss!!!  Which makes my grand total:

25 pounds gone forever!!!!

I am so happy about that loss.  I was really struggling there for awhile, especially with all of the traveling involved.  It's good to get a loss like that.

Another thing I am super happy about is the Ready For Summer Challenge!  It begins March 26 and goes thru June 3.  My girl Maren is putting on the challenge to get all of us hip girlies in shape for summer!  I am all in!  Can't wait to get started!  Come and join in the challenge with me!  I am thinking about my goals for the challenge and don't want to do something too easy.  What kind of goals are you thinking about doing?

Well, I have lots to do today.  I need to clean out our spare bedroom, take some things to storage, and there is always a mountain of laundry waiting for me.  Plus, I need to catch up on some blogs.

Have a wonderful St. Patty's Day!!

We really need to stop meeting like this.  I hate that I can't post as much as I used to.  I have been gone out of town for work and am needing a break!  So glad I am finally back for a little while.  I had to weigh in last week on Saturday because I was in Cincinnati all week.  That's okay, because I lost 1.2 pounds!  Yay!  I was expecting to gain or maintain, so the loss was a nice surprise.  All the walking you do in and out of airports can really add up, especially if you have a layover.

I won't be weighing in this week until Thursday.  I have a two day meeting starting today and just really wanted some space between weigh ins.  I should be back to my normal Wednesday WI by next week, fingers crossed!

I am so behind on your blogs.  So sorry!  I adore each and every one of my new blogging friends!  I will make my rounds this morning and evening.  Have a wonderful day!

Good morning.  I finally have my computer back AND figured out how to post from my iPhone.  I am not technologically savvy, so it takes me awhile.  When I first started this blog, I thought I needed to have long posts, full of meaning.  I was wrong to think that because it has caused me not to post at all.  I think a quick update here and there should suffice, right?

As you can see from the past two WIs, I am still at -20.4 pounds.  It's been a struggle these past few weeks.  I do great during the holidays, but on normal weeks, I almost sabotage myself.  I also missed the recipe for February, so I am doing two in the month of March.  I have one that I can't wait to try!!!

I can talk about getting back on track, but the proof will be in the results.  I am going to miss my Wednesday WI this week since I will be in Cincinnati for work.  I won't be able to weigh in until Friday or Saturday.  That's going to suck.  But, I am taking my pedometer with me and plan to get in my steps while on the road.

I have so much catching up to do.  It feels so good to be back on here again!  I have missed everyone!!

Another WI

Hey there. Where have I been? I've been hiding, in shame. I had a gain last week and I wanted to crawl under a rock.

I have another weigh in and I am NOT looking forward to it. There is so much anxiety.

I am blogging from my iPod because the computer is soooo slow! Ugh!

Well, just wanted tinker everyone know I'm still here.
