I must admit that I haven't blogged in a while because I have been in a pretty dark place! I am so afraid of failing with weight loss again! Today, I came home to my secret Santa gift!!!! A beautiful black wrap sweater-which I have been wanting!!! AND this amazingly sweet secret Santa included gifts for Marcus (he was all over the doggie treats already) and something for Mya - she hasn't opened hers yet because she is still at soccer!!! That was so so sweet of you to include them!!!! You are awesome and truly made me feel special!!!! Thank you for helping me remember that I am not alone on this journey!!! Xoxo

Let’s do a little themed version of where you live and why!
1. Describe the structure you live in. (apartment, condo, house, mansion, cardboard box?)
I live in a 1 story approx 1900 sq. ft house – it has 3 bed rooms and a den. Open living area.
2. Describe the city you live in. (population, main attractions)
I live in Goodyear – it is a suburb of Phoenix I guess. Out here everything flows into one gigantic city. You have anything and everything.
3. Why do you live in the town you live in? (job, to get away from a different town, family, schools?)
We live here because both my family and my husband’s family are here. I was born and raised here. Now that Mya is almost 10, she is pretty rooted here as well. I would love to move somewhere with actual seasons. I really want change but at the same time it scares me.
4. What’s the view like from your backyard?
Pool, desert landscaping and a block fence.
5. Repeat question: How has your week been in blogland and in real life?

*Thanksgiving was good - I managed to eat okay and in limited portions. However, the temptation was brutal.
*Emotional eating is becoming a problem. I think I need to see a counselor. I have been really stressed with work, school, the holidays and ALL I want to do is eat. I tend to get mad when I know I can't eat anymore.... Sad I know.
*I am getting a fill on Thursday and I am hoping this will curb some of the actual hunger.
* I NEED TO EXERCISE - I have been putting off joining the gym because I don't want to spend the money but I think I need to join so I can go to a place focused on exercise without any distractions.... If that makes any sense!
*In general, I am crabby and need to get out of this funk!
Have a great day all! :)

I’m going to do a Thanksgiving themed BYOC this week (it was Jenny’s idea)!
1. What is your FAVORITE part of Thanksgiving?
Well – I generally dread Thanksgiving so the only part I enjoyed was being able to eat unlimited amounts of food….. I can’t do that now even if I wanted to – so I am going to try to focus on conversation and such…..
2. How many Thanksgiving family events will you attend?
Three – my mom, my in-laws, and my daughter’s God-parents. This year I am actually thankful for this because I can just say I ate at the place prior and avoid any awkward “that is all your going to eat” questions.
3. What’s your biggest Thanksgiving tradition?
I really don’t have one. It is sad; I should really start creating one!
4. Do you Black Friday shop the day after Thanksgiving?
Nope, I HATE crowds – I would rather pay more than fight someone at Wal-Mart. Plus you can get great deals online.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog world.
Real life is a pain right now! I hate work! It is very hard to work with people who have no morals or values!

First, I am sad that I did not make it to the support group meeting last night. I didn't end up leave work until after 6. I will shoot for next month as I really want to meet some people in person!!
Second, I discovered an amazing snack! Pineapple Chobaini Greek Yogurt with a bit if toasted coconut and a chopped almond!
