Consider the Junk Jettisoned!

Well, it’s the beginning of a 3 day weekend!!! I seriously live for these long weekends. I think in my last blog I mentioned that I was going to make chili fries & chili dogs. I did make them but I forgot to take a picture because I was in way too much of a hurry to eat the food, that I couldn’t think about anything else. They were actually delicious. I love hot dogs and while the Hebrew National 97% Fat Free sausages are an OK substitute...they are nothing compared to an Oscar Meyer hot dog on the grill...yum. Oh well...the Hebrew National’s worked for me this week and I will definitely make it again. I especially loved the cheese fries...I’ve made those before...I think they are going to become a regular at my house.

So-you may have also noticed that June is FINALLY over!!! If you don’t remember, my goal was to JETTISON THE JUNK IN JUNE! My main priority was to limit my cheating only to Sundays and be as strict as possible Monday-Saturday. Well, I did it! I was basically flawless the whole time. As I expected, only cheating on Sundays would pay off. Not only did I lose the birthday weight that I gained, I also lost like an additional 3 pounds (I haven’t even weighed yet this week...it could be more than that by tomorrow). This was the proof I needed to try my best not to cheat!!! I have plans the next 3 weekends that will involve some food that isn’t great so I know the weight loss will slow down but I am really going to try not to go overboard. After the July special occasions are over, I plan on getting right back to jettisoning. I will have to name August something like...Awesomely Amazing in August or something...if it’s a name I need to motivate me, then that is what I should do. I’m not going to lie...there were some days in June that I was in a pretty bad mood about the strict dieting. There are many yummy things you miss out on when you are that strict but it DOES pay off...you just keep having to remind yourself that you aren’t punishing yourself, you are only making things better.

Speaking of special occasions in July...tomorrow is my Dad’s 63rd birthday!




I’m just kiddin’...he’s only going to be 48. I hope your birthday is great Dad! I’ll be there...so clearly...it will be fun. ;)

Also, as I’m sure you all know...Sunday is Independence Day!



With the long weekend, I hope we can all remember why we are celebrating! I think the 4th is a time to reflect on history but it’s also a great time to give thanks to all who serve and have served in the Armed Forces!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!

I plan to enjoy the heck out of mine!

That’s why there are so many exclamation marks in this post!!!

“I was standin' at the counter
I was waitin' for the change
When I heard that old familiar music start
It was like a lighted match
Had been tossed into my soul
It was like a dam had broken in my heart

After taking ev'ry detour
Gettin' lost and losin' track
So that even if I wanted
I could not find my way back
After drivin' out the mem'ry
Of the way things might have been
After I'd forgotten all about us
The song remembers when

We were rolling through the Rockies
We were up above the clouds
When a station out of Jackson played that song
And it seemed to fit the moment
And the moment seemed to freeze
When we turned the music up and sang along

And there was a God in Heaven
And the world made perfect sense
We were young and were in love
And we were easy to convince
We were headed straight for Eden
It was just around the bend
And though I have forgotten all about it
The song remembers when

I guess somethin' must have happened
And we must have said goodbye
And my heart must have been broken
Though I can't recall just why
The song remembers when

Well, for all the miles between us
And for all the time that's passed
You would think I haven't gotten very far
And I hope my hasty heart
Will forgive me just this once
If I stop to wonder how on earth you are

But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtrackin'
Around corners I have turned
Still I guess some things we bury
Are just bound to rise again
For even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when

Yeah, and even if the whole world has forgotten
The song remembers when.” The Song Remembers When-Trisha Yearwood
