This year for Halloween I dressed up as a ... Runner. That's right. I got off my butt, after much trying to talk myself out of it. I dressed in my long sleeved running tee and headed to the track. I remembered to cover my EARS from last time, but forgot my watch. I started out doing C25K W9D2 and then continued to finish a 5K. I jogged the WHOLE time, except 6 short water breaks. But still I am SO SO SO proud of myself. I had no idea I could jog for 3 miles. My longest before today was 2.20… Continue

I did not journal yesterday because I spent the whole day roller skating with my girls. I had some pizza and a margaritta last night with friends. I did not eat great this weekend, but it wasnt too horrible either. I wrecked my perfect streak with my journaling goal by not writing down my food, but I am not going to beat myself up too bad. This challange is keeping me on my toes and keeping me accountable.

Happy New Month Eve! Gosh! Where does the time go?! When was in grade school, it seemed that time stood still, for months on end! I'm STILL getting used to writing 2010 on checks and paperwork! Less than a month to T-day! At the rate I'm going, I will be a happy soul just to see the 170's by then! Much less my goal of 173.5. If I stay out of Applebees and the candy, I think it's still feasible. ( Why the HECK did I get the Tootsie Roll mix?! I can eat my weight in Tootsie Rolls! Packed away to… Continue

So yesterday I was with Mummy...well she was with me she came to my house. I made her Turkey Veggie Chili and I made her Pumpkin Roll. She loved it all!! We had trick or treaters yesterday in our town. It was great! Costumes were adorable. My sister and my daughter dressed as members of the rap/rock band Insane Clown Posse' Violent Jay and Shaggy to Dope. (See Picture below) oh and Mummy was the Queen of Hearts!!...LOLI
I went with my Mummy and Nephew to the hotel we had as… Continue

I just finished 9 weeks of working out 6 days a week and today was a weigh in and measure day to see where I was at.
The scale was down 1.4 lbs
Inches lost are as follows:
Abdomen - 1 inch
Bust - 1 inch
Under bust 1/2 inch
Hips - 1 inch
So in 9 weeks, I lost 8 1/2 inches total. I am pleased with the results thus far. I am disappointed in the scale but it is what it is and I am just going to keep working hard and doing what I am… Continue

Stupidly I let husband choose the Halloween candy!
Now, I have no one but myself to blame. Because, really, he did follow my instructions of not buying any chocolate. I know he wanted to. But he didn't.
But he bought Twizzlers instead!
Oh, damn and drat!
He didn't remember that I love Twizzlers. (Of course, I didn't exactly remind him of that and also didn't tell him not to get them. I wanted him to get lollipops...but they were sold out....)

Ok, so I ended my last blog talking about feeling undeserving of the
life that I do have! While I was hiding from the world and feeling sick
and scared, afraid of the opposite sex, afraid of rejection, somehow I
met the man of my dreams! Well I guess I didn't really "meet" him
then. We actually grew up in the same town. We were in some of the
same classes since we were in the 6th… Continue

Tonight I went to my first ‘real’ party since I started this new stage of my life. This was just a small Halloween party at my little sister’s place. A party where I knew a lot of people. But these people have been “real” friends with my sisters for years. To me they are not people that I considered friends. In fact when one of the… Continue

Well, yesterday I didn't really follow my party game plan. I drank way more than I needed and intended to but I'm not going to detail what I drank. I should have been more conscious of the fact that I haven't been drinking much lately and that my body wasn't used to alcohol. I did drink a lot of water as well but I still woke up this morning not with an awful hangover but just general blah feeling and headache.
But! I had a great time on my date that I'm not sure was actually a date… Continue

I fell off the wagon Friday night and last night, I didn't go completely crazy, but I did go out with my girlfriend Emily and some of her friends and drank. Then I went through the jack in the box drive through... then yesterday I ate almost a whole bag of chips and cheese dip then went out again last night. Here is a picture of me and my boyfriend from last night. He is Fry from futurama. I'm boring- I'm not anything! …

While sitting here waiting for the little trick-or-treaters to show up, I figured I would post some before and after pictures. The before picture (I hope you can tell which is which) was from 2005 and the after is from last month apple picking with my little 5 month old baby boy! I have lost around 95 pounds in the last 1 and half years.…

Friday morning I decided to treat myself to a very special breakfast treat. Most weekday work mornings I have the same breakfast, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on a sandwich thin. But since I had a little extra time and a great subway gift card i won here on this site (Thanks again!) I figured why not check it out.
The menu selection was very good and since I don't eat eggs it was nice that they make everything fresh as you like it. I ended up picking a sausage and cheese… Continue

My goodness! It seems to be a trend though, Jessica and Anne Marie seemed to indulge as well. I've been exercising and tracking calories without going over so i'm blaming the booze. Time to cut it out for a few weeks and see if it makes a difference. Is it really possible to gain 1lb overnight???

One year ago today I started running in Jacksonville Florida while visiting my sister. One year later, I am here again and today I took that same path for my anniversary run. What a difference a year makes!
Instead of a one mile run, I did 4.
There were no questions about if I could do it (I can run 10 miles now).
There were no questions of sustainability (I run about 4 days a week and 365 days later I know I can say I exercise regulary).
There were no questions about what to… Continue

I have severely educated myself about Applebee's Nutrition Stats. ( they ain't pretty, unless it bears the WW label.) Eating there twice in a week is a rare occurance, so I'm not going to fret, fuss and fall. Last night, Hubby and I enjoyed some margaritas and watched Netflix. I will confess that I did have the " Aw. The hell with it! Today is shot!" mentality. Instead of eating everything not nailed down, I popped a bag of popcorn, had a few pretzels, enjoyed my Adult Beverage and drew up… Continue
