At the end of the day...


Hi y’all.  I’m sick and I’m being a big baby so I’m going to make this quick.  I haven’t been eating like I should so I’ve been copping out and not weighing.  I decided that I needed to weigh and face the scale on Saturday.  Miraculously, it wasn’t that bad.  I’m still less than 10 pounds away from my smallest weight.  I need to get my mind right.  I want to lose 10 pounds, right away.  I’m tired of this crap.  I’m taking the fact that I haven’t gained much weight as a sign from my body that it’s willing to work with me.  So, it’s on for the next few weeks.  I’m saying goodbye to carb filled weekends.  It’s time.


I don’t have a recipe this week but I do want to heed a warning.  The battle to find decent salad dressing is ongoing.  I know that yogurt recipes are the new fad.  It’s a lower fat option for things like mayonnaise and sour cream. Sometimes it’s a hit and sometimes it’s a miss.  I’m going to just tell you that the Caesar Parmigiano dressing from Bolthouse Farms is a miss.  This dressing fails to mask the nasty kick that fat free Greek yogurt can have sometimes.  In fact, it had an undertone of rotten milk that made me want puke a little bit.  It’s still sitting in my refrigerator.  It was expensive so I put it back in the fridge for some reason.  I guess I’m cheap.  My guess it will stay in there and stare at me every time I open the door until it’s reached its expired date and I finally throw it away.  Feel free to ignore me and try it anyway but know that you are going against a strong recommendation to stay away. 


My Dad and I attended the 4th annual Suds of the South Beer Festival in Tuscaloosa this weekend.  A lot of my friends went too.  It’s always a fun time.  It’s something nice that Tuscaloosa does. If you live in a small town, it’s important to appreciate the few events that it hosts.  Unfortunately, the beer was full of calories and so was the pizza we had after.  Luckily, there are no more enticing events coming up to make me stray from my diet.  I am going to see Maroon 5 on Tuesday but I’m going with Jordan and my brother so they will keep me in line.

At the end of the day, I know that I’ve done well and have a lot to be proud of but it’s all for nothing if I don’t get myself into gear.  I need to come to a point where I am once again putting myself first.  I know that if I am dedicated and driven, I can do good things…so, I’m ready to be awesome again.

I hope to have a successful week/weekend so look forward to positive news next week!

Have a wonderful week and HAPPY EASTER! Bye.

  2. Oh, and PS. - Your title...At the end of the day...obviously it made me think of Les Mis...now I can't stop humming and singing that song! :) I'm okay with that though.

  3. Haha...I can hear the puke sound you make in my head. I think the concert will be amazing...not as amazing as the Easter weekend you got coming up, though. THANKS! <3

  4. I knew it'd make you think of Les Mis! That's partially why I did it...it's a multi-functioning title though.
