Weigh-In, Lenten Positivity, and 11 years

214.6 - another loss of .2 - damn you potato chips and girl scout cookies!

Day 2 and Day 3 of positive FB posting for Lent:

Day 2: I love my daughter - she is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me!
Day 3 (Today): is my 11th wedding anniversary! :)

Mya and I made it to 6:30 mass this morning in an attempt to start lent on the right foot :)

I am not giving up anything this year but I am making an effort to be more positive.  I feel like lately I have let the small bumps in the road to take over the bigger picture.  I am going to post on FB - I will probably blog it too - something positive or something that I am thankful for.  Today, I am grateful for my faith.

Last Week: 215.2
214.8 - TOM is here and it usually brings a 2lb bloating along so I am hoping that there is actually a legit loss... since I have been on par with diet, exercise, etc.

BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!
It’s Friday and that means it’s time for BYOC! Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!

1. Name a Valentine gift you would NOT want to receive.

From my husband, flowers – they are too expensive and they die.

2. What’s your vacation personality? Do you act/eat/talk/do things differently or completely opposite from when you are not on vacation?

We rarely go anywhere.  We are so busy at home.

3. Describe yourself in 5 POSITIVE words.


4. Do you have any phobias or irrational fears or dislikes?

Ummm well this is a LIST…. Bridges, I will get off the freeway so as not to drive over them, Flying – combo of closterphobia (sp??) and heights, elevators, food borne illness – I will not eat leftovers at all…. There are many others…..  

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

Real life is okay – I am making a move for a positive attitude.

Blog life is great as always

Weigh In

Weight: 215.2 lbs

I have finally made it to the 50 lb mark!!!!  The week was great with diet, water, and exercise!!!  Shockingly (sarcasm), I did really well!!  Common sense, Elizabeth, you CAN do this!!  

Anyway, my 50lbs lost present to myself will be a tattoo.  Going off of Sandra at Think it.Do it. Live it. I am going to put “Dream it. Do it. Live it” on the inside of my left wrist.  In reality what it should say is “protein, water, move your a**” but that probably wouldn’t be quite as attractive hahaha :).  The reason I decided on this now as opposed to when I reach my goal is because I need the constant reminder that this will never be easy but you have to do it!   I also chose my wrist because I need that constant reminder.  It was a hard decision as a mom because I always tell Mya that you should never get a tattoo that you can't cover up – but I am a huge watch person so it shouldn’t be an issue.    

Happy Friday!!!

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for BYOC. Bring Your Own Crazy. We answer five questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy and paste if you so desire and ENJOY!

1. Have you ever bought undies/bra/lingerie for someone else? Or has anyone ever bought them for you? How was the “experience”?

I buy my hubby’s and mya’s undies and mya’s bras…..  No one has ever purchased for me.  I would definitely be uncomfortable about that.  Plus my boobies are to big to pick up a bra anywhere normal!

2. Do you have an internal song you replay in your head that is just yours?

Not really, I usually get stuck with whatever the last thing I heard in the car before I come in to work. Today it is the Band Perry - If I Die Young

3. I heard on the news the other day that something like 80% of people think a tan person is way sexier than “not tan”. How do you feel about that? Do you tan? Fake bake? Real sun? Or do you wear SPF 150?

I love tan – I used to tan and then something change and now I burn and peel – can’t keep a tan – so depressing!  I think that tan looks great on me.

4. Do you vote in the presidential election? Do you vote based on news, family opinions or research or your gut?

I do vote because as a country we have lost lives, fought wars, etc. over this right.  I vote based on research.  I do have to agree w/Draz when I say sometimes I vote not for someone but against the other guy.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real life – I am stressed.  I just feel like things are out of control!  I can handle when one area is stressful but when it is across the board I struggle!!!! I need to organize my life! 

Blog land – gotta get back to reading.
