Boy oh boy have I been busy. I don't feel like I have had time to sit & read blogs,breath or even clean my house. Yet this has been a week that I have exercised everyday. Not really sure how that happens. Either way my weigh in for this week is a loss of .9 of a pound. Yup one ounce away from a pound. Sounds about right for my weigh in's.
Looking at my side bar I really don't think 13 pounds is going to be enough to make me happy. At least with this slow weigh loss I am keeping it off but I think I am going to want to lose more then 13 pounds. Maybe 125 is a number that I need to try for.
It was an interesting eating week. We were getting ready for One Hundred Day at school in Kindergarten. There has been some major issues in the classroom with one of the kids which has caused some major stress.
Yesterday we had a birthday party at a friends. I went with a green shake (which was not great). I ended up cutting a sandwich in half & eating some carrots with dressing with about a spoonful of pasta. The cake was Dirt Cake so I had a spoonful of that and it was all. I was doing good and proud of myself. Then my daughter decided to say some things & I sent her home. My husband & I went to the movies. I was so upset I ate entire bag of M&M's. Not the single serving size & not the big bag. The middle size one. Not sure what I thought it was going to do but I was just so mad at the time I really didn't care. This is a area I need to work on.
Friday night a group of us drove about an hour away to take a one hour Zumba class with a Master Zumba Instructor. It was great to see the different styles out there. The woman in the yellow top was the Master teacher. She did more of an African style dance which was not really any of our styles that we do. It was a great time though. A great way to hang out & burn calories & not consume them.
Woke up to it snowing this morning. Yesterday I was wearing flip flops. Not a happy camper right now. Off to get ready for Zumba!

Today is another weigh in day. When it comes to my weigh in's I feel like time is flying by. It seems like it is Thursday & then Thursday again. Drives me nuts sometimes. Anyways I am down from last week. -1.3 pounds! I have finally broken into another set of "numbers" if you will. I just want to clearify that the weight on the scale in the picture is not my weight & although I would not mind being that weight I doubt that will happen. If you notice my ticker to the right you guys have a new picture coming to you in 1 ounce!!! I have almost lost 50 pounds. Talk about being close. My weight loss from the highest weight I have ever been has me down 61.9 pounds!!
My exercise has not been that great compared to last month. I am averaging 5-6 days a week when I was doing 6-7. I miss the 6-7 but life has been busy this month. Hopefully March will bring me back to my 6-7 days a week. I was told Zumba will be added to Tuesday night. So hopefully I can make that one since Monday's seem so hard to get to.
With the lack of sun & warm weather we are having I thought I would have my nails down in neon pink. Funny thing is I was getting funny looks from the other girls around me getting their nails done I have had more compliments on my nails with this color then another time. Men included.
I wanted to share with you the Valentines card I got from my bestie & workout buddy. Bacon in a shape of a heart. She knows I won't eat bacon much anymore so this was perfect. The Orchid was from here also & the other flowers ares are from my hubby!
I am supposed to go snowboarding Saturday. I have been skiing, I have been ice skating. Snowboarding I have not. So this will not be me...
but I am sure this will be....
Fingers crossed I break nothing so that I can continue to Zumba it up!!

I am still alive but a busy busy person. I was home last week Thursday & Friday from work because I was in such pain. Something I have never felt before. Either way it has put a damper on my workout schedule for February. I feel like between the nonstop pain & the nonstop fog we are having outside I am in a rut. I just want to fast forward to March skip the middle of that month and go straight to summer! These pictures are both taken from yesterday. Beautiful yes but the entire day it did not look this beautiful!
My eating has been so so. I am on the TOM & having some cravings which with the depressing mood I am in I have given in to. I feel like I need to do a revamp on my eating. I feel like when I have less choices I do better. This is something I need to look into asap.
Hate to make this short but I have 30 candy grams to get ready for tomorrow. Oh the joys of school & the holidays!
P.S. I just ordered a shirt & water bottle from Jen- Prior Fat Girl!! How exciting!

I am going to make this short as I am sick and sitting up hurts my stomach. I do not know what is wrong but woke in the middle of the night with intense sharp pains. I have slept on the coach most of the day & feel like I need to get sick yet nothing.
Anyways my weigh in this week has me up 3 ounces. Not bad considering my TOM is to start tomorrow. On a side note the pain I am feeling in my stomach feels nothing like cramps. That was the first thing I thought of.
In the exercise challenges I took up (Marcelle's & Sly's) I am starting off on a bad note. Was out late Tues. night & then of course there is tonight. I was ready for these challenges but I guess this is just another challenge to add to it.
I will leave you with a picture of a dress I just sold. It was a size 18. The pics. do not show the difference like I had hoped but as my daughter put it. "This dress makes you look like you have no boobs" lol. Guess that is what happens when it hangs from you.
