So my life has kept me away from my blog lately. Much is going on, and it's not all that great. I am still losing weight, and still on that path, but I need to put all my energies into something more important, my marriage.

With that being said, I will still plan to update weekly, but I can't promise anymore than that right now.

I am happy to report a 5lb (161.2) loss at WW on Tuesday, and my exercise is ROCKING. I am hoping for another fantastic loss come Tuesday....but doubt it'll be 5lbs. I'm a 6.2lbs shy from my lowest adult weight, and I feel VERY happy about that!!

Just thought I'd let you all know what is going on, and not to worry. I admit I haven't been reading I hope everyone is doing fantatsic! And...don't count me down for the count...just on "sabbatical" as my girlfriend calls it!!!

Weekly Weigh In

Again I found myself busy this past week and unable to post and read as much as I would have liked. But I'm still alive (though snow covered!) and still kicking. I also want to brag that I really had an awesome week, and fortunately the scale at WW showed it! WOOHOO!

Today I weighed in at 166.2! That's a 2.2lb loss! Now remember 2 weeks ago I lost zero, and then last week I didn't weigh in at WW due to snow (though when weighed on my scale I had gained). So I'm super happy with the loss!! And I'm CLOSE (1lb) to hitting my 5%! I'm aiming for that next week!!!

The weekend was nice. I totally stayed on track, journaled, exercised on Sunday and drank all my water, so my weekend was a success. Plus the Hunney and I got to spend time together, without the kiddos...which was SUPER!!! He gave me the cutest card ever, and made me smile. He's got a great sense of I always love his cards, and especially the lovey things he writes. I don't get that often, so I cherish them!!!

Anyway...I'm running low on time...but needed to update!

What I accomplished last week:
  • Track every single day! - YES!
  • Exercise 5 days - YES... 6 days actually!
  • Finish my weekly tasks for work - as usual, still working on
  • Daily vitamin - YES!
  • Be prepared for the Hunney's birthday on Wed. Decide what I want more - cake or salsa/chips and only have ONE. - Well, I had some chips and salsa...and still had 1 cupcake, but made it special with 1 tab of icing!
  • Read 1 day - No
  • Stairs at work 3 times ONE day - No
  • Blog 3 times - No, I think I only got 2 days... argh!

What I want to accomplish this week:
  • Track every single day!
  • Exercise 5 days
  • Get 4 folders off my desk
  • Daily vitamin
  • Read 1 day
  • Stairs at work 3 times ONE day
  • 10,000 steps 3 days

Weekend warrior!

It's weekend time my friends, and I have my armor on to successfully survive. Yes, I know Valentines Day is stuck in there...and if my Hunney gets me the same thing (or similar) to what he did 2 years ago (2 weeks before we left for Vegas to get married), I'm going to go POSTAL on him. What did he get me you ask? Oh a LOVELY cookie bouquet! was sooo cute and VERY sweet...but please, thats seriously sabatoge!

Anway, for V-day I'm not sure what we're doing yet, but the Hunney mentioned possibly going gambling. Sounds okay...not exactly the most romantic thing in the world, but at least it would be something we both enjoy doing (him especially). My Hunney can be kind of I'm quite certain we won't be going out for dinner. That means I get make us something special - and still on plan! Yay :)

I have worked out all week (well, except Monday), and even on Tuesday and Thursday I went to Zumba classes (SO FUN!) . I've been on track with my eating, so I'm feeling like myself again. Whew!

My plan this weekend is to journal every day, =workout at least once, and guzzle all my water! 3 simple things to help me stay successful, right?!!!

Happy Valentine's everyone!

Guess Who?!

Yep...I've totally been MIA! Can you believe it? I have no excuse, NONE. I thought I was doing really good too...totally was on track and then the inevitable happened - you know, life! I won't go into details, but it's female stuff, emotions = comfort eating.

With that being said, back to the old me...TODAY. I know you probably get tired of hearing this, but hey...I'll say it as many times as I have to. I MUST conquer this, get over that hurdle, cross the FINISH LINE!

Didn't make it to Weight Watchers today due to snow and being lazy. It's probably a good thing considering I'm certain I gained. Oh and last week I got an undeserved maintain. Okay...I know a maintain is better than a gain, but damn...I get tired of working my butt off and for NOTHING. So that was discouraging and started that snowball effect. is new, the week is new...and I'm ready (yes this is positive self talk).

Here are my weekly goals :)

What I want to accomplish this week:
  • Track every single day!
  • Exercise 5 days
  • Finish my weekly tasks for work
  • Daily vitamin
  • Be prepared for the Hunney's birthday on Wed. Decide what I want more - cake or salsa/chips and only have ONE.
  • Read 1 day
  • Stairs at work 3 times ONE day
  • Blog 3 times
