Hello Weekend! You look FABULOUS!

Well you guys, evidently St. Patrick’s day needs to come around more often because I had the luck of the Irish on the scale this morning. When I hopped on, I was a bit nervous. I’ve been good the whole week but last weekend (especially last Thursday) I wasn’t as strict as I should’ve been. On the contrary, I think cutting out the cheat meal on Saturday has been very beneficial and also, I am still busting my butt with exercise so it’s not like I’ve been a slacker. The scale showed that I have lost 3.6 pounds this week bringing my total to 95.2 pounds which is INSANE. The second I saw the number, I adjusted my eyes a few times and then got off of it immediately in case it changed its mind. I haven’t lost that much in a week in awhile. I must have some pretty intense momentum going on. I am going to weigh on a different scale later just to compare but I will have to remember that I have clothes on and I will have had food to eat by that point. I am always waiting on the other shoe to drop which is sort of a stressful way to live life. I should be happy about the results the scale showed this morning and not think about anything else but as I usually do, I muck it up with other thoughts. I am SO close to that 100 pound goal and I am way ahead of schedule so if the weight loss does slow down in the next few weeks, that will be fine…I am going to keep on pushing! I can’t WAIT to take that 100 pound picture!

Since I don’t have much to discuss other than my unexpected success on the scale, I wanted to give a shout out to a new CD that I am totally loving right now. Adele’s 21 is amazing and right up my alley. It’s soulful and the writing is awesome…I love it…I have already quoted from it once before but I wanted to give an official promo. If you liked her first CD or you liked Chasing Pavements and you are into that sort of music…you will LOVE 21. Ok…I’m done now…lol.

This weekend is laced with the usual rush of exercise and errands. I also plan to see Jordan, have fun going out and going to the Druid City Arts Festival here in town with my mom. I’m not exactly sure what all the arts festival involves because I haven’t been before but I imagine art will be included…just a guess. Anyway, it’s just something different to do and see.

I will be back with more interesting words next week…or at least I hope so…I have been slacking on the blog a little again. I am feeling pretty confident these days and I am definitely more of an emotional writer. So, in terms of weight loss, it’s been difficult for me to work up unique and worthy things to say. I’ve actually had the hankering to write a lot lately…about things other than losing weight. All I know to do is offer words of encouragement. I know that there are people out there in a rut and my only advice at this point is to never quit. Believe me, I feel like I am on the verge of a burnout at least once a week but I have a mindset now that won’t let me stop. It’s weird, I’ve always felt like the line between being on the wagon and off could be breached at any time…and really…it can but I’ve never felt further from that line. It takes awhile to get to that point though, so keep persevering!!!

I hope you all have a fun, relaxing weekend!

You earned it!


“Have I been on your mind?
You hang on every word I say, lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name, will I ever know
How it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me which ever road I chose you'll go

I don't know why I'm scared, I've been here before
Every feeling every word, I've imagined it all,
You never know if you never tried to forgive your past
And simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I'm worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance

To prove that I'm the one who can
Walk that mile
Until the end starts

I know it ain't easy
Giving up your heart
I know it ain't easy
Giving up your heart

(Nobody's perfect, trust me I've earned it)
I know it ain't easy, giving up your heart
(Nobody's perfect, trust me I've earned it)
I know it ain't easy, giving up your heart.” One and Only-Adele
