Keep On Keepin' On

I lost weight y’all! HOORAYYY!!! Honestly, I think I needed a good week. It probably would have been more had I not binged on snacks the night before but WHATEVER-I still lost. I am hoping to lose again this week even if it’s just a little because I know the next couple weeks are going to be rough. I will need mucho motivation when I return from Paris to be good but I plan to keep on keeping’s almost summer time and since we already know I won’t be very tan...I would like to abstain from frightening small children when I wear shorts. I can’t wait to get down 60lbs. It’s been a while since I hit a 10 pound mark. It may not be until April but I’m GOING to get there.

I don’t know if y’all know this or not (if you’ve read my quotes at the bottom, you’ve probably guessed) but I’m a fan of Ingrid Michaelson and I bought tickets just now to see her on March 27th down in Gulf Shores! I’m pretty excited. I first heard her music on Grey’s Anatomy. After I heard about 3 songs I loved, I was so confident I would love her music that I bought every CD. There is only one that I don’t absolutely love! She’s a great writer and goes right along with the kind of music I like so I will be very excited to see her.

There is one week until the Oscars and as predicted, there is no way I can see ALL of the movies (though there was almost a plan that involved travels to Atlanta and a desperate attempt to see three or four movies in one day). I am a little bit disappointed and I know Jordan is VERY disappointed but I should be able to get 3 or 4 in this week and be pretty educated for this Sunday’s show. I watched Inglorious Basterds yesterday. It was definitely a Tarantino movie. I haven’t seen the Kill Bill movies but I have seen a few of his and the only one I really liked was Pulp Fiction. Let me say that I never have to see scalping or skull bashing to enjoy a movie so I would have been FINE if this movie didn’t include all the gruesome scenes. Having said that, I really liked the movie. I thought it was funny and a completely different perspective on the Holocaust. It WAS weird but I think I have trained myself to watch his movies and understand them because I consider the fact that he may not be all there so it makes it easier to watch them. Overall, I liked it though and I thought Christopher Waltz (nominated for best Supporting Actor) did an AMAZING job and his nomination is well deserved. Based on the movies I’ve seen though, I don’t think it should win best picture...not that I think it has a chance anyway...that’s just my opinion.

Well, I’m definitely struggling food wise today and I feel like it won’t get any better the next couple of weeks. It’s sad because the reason I am having such a hard time is because I know I won’t be perfect next week (I pre-meditated a couple of things like a cheat lunch next week since I knew I wouldn’t be weighing the Saturday we leave for Paris) and I will be fully bad in Paris. Basically, it’s like a kid waiting on Christmas. All I can think about is cheating. That just proves that my addiction is incurable...I’m like a recovering alcoholic. Whatever...I just know I’m going to need lots of pep talks this month to stay on track! Have a great afternoon y’all. I’m going to see The Blindside after work...I’ll let you know what I thought tomorrow even though I think I’m one of 10 people in the world that hasn’t seen it yet.

"So, I'm taking my frown to a far distant town." Far Away-Ingrid Michaelson


  1. Don't get discouraged've been doing very well. Even if there are people around you that can be discouraging you keep on keeping on and you just ignore them. You have a lot of people supporting you in your quest to lose weight. But it's not about them, it's about what makes you happy... I know that enjoying the food that you love makes you feel happy, but keep in mind that it's only a temporary, euphoric's not as long lasting as the 60lb-mark-happy will be. Good Luck! -HAG

  2. Yay for losing weight!!!
    Yay for going to see Ingrid!!!
    And YAY YAY YAY for Paris!!!

    I am definitely disappointed that I haven't seen all the movies on my Oscar list, but I'm still hoping for a miracle.
