Sorry not writing as much

Wow, I am really behind in my writing...sorry.

I lost -1.2lbs last week at weigh in. I'm down -39lbs and am out of the 130s! WOOHOO 129lbs :) it feels fantastic.

I slacked off on exercise this past weekend. I did do a 2.5 mile Strawberry Festival walk on Saturday with my friend but I bailed on the gym for the entire weekend. I was back in there today though and really hit it hard, 40 minutes on the arc trainer and 20 minutes on the treadmill. I plan on getting up early and going to the gym tomorrow morning.

Now for an update on everything else. Things are going great with the new guy. His daughter was up here for a little bit longer then a week and we got along pretty well. We went to see this great rock cover band on Saturday night at a local bar and had a fantastic time singing AC DC and similar bands at the top of our lungs LOL. Just trying to get to know him and see what happens I guess. It seems like we get along pretty good though and I'm enjoying myself. Who knows what will happen?

I got an award :)

So first off, thank you so much for the award (and sorry it took me so long to post about it). The rules of this one are I need to tell 7 things about myself that people might not know...so here they are.

1. I have double jointed shoulders and I can swing my arms around my head and back while my fingers from both hands are intertwined (without letting go).

2. I love the Simpsons, it is my all time favorite tv show and I DVR all the episodes.

3. I have a cat named macey grey who has no tail because she was born that way. I like to call her chicken...why? who knows?

4. I firmly believe that women shouldn't have to go to the dump EVER, sorry if that upsets the feminists but I hate it there so much, it's just so dirty (obviously).

5. I took Chinese kempo karate for 8 years and have my brown belt.

6. I wish that cheese was zero points and I think about how great this would be frequently.

7. I firmly believe that all New England sports teams are the best teams ever, GO Pats, Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins regardless of how they play at any one given time.

Guess that's it for my 7 facts. Thanks for the award :)


My weekend went great. The weather was beautiful and I spent a lot of time at my new guy's house, having BBQs and in the pool. I got to meet his daughter which seemed to go pretty well. I'm still waiting to hear from him what she had to say when I wasn't around though, just to be sure.

This has been a good week so far besides not feeling well. It's really easy to be OP when you just don't feel good and food is kind of blah. I didn't go to the gym yesterday or today but I'm going to make and effort to get back there tomorrow morning. No dinner with Oma this week so I don't have to worry about overeating the night before weigh in.

Tonight is my favorite tv night, Hell's Kitchen :) I can not wait. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

WI results :)

So I lost -.6lbs at last night's weigh in. I don't think I'm going to see big numbers anymore though but I'm happy with -.6lbs that's for sure. I'm at 130 right now and I want to get down to 128 maybe 125 but I'm waiting to see how I look and how it feels. I want to be comfortable and not have to worry about gaining after I eat something when I pick my actual goal weight.

Last night I met my new guy's daughter but just for a minute. I'm supposed to actually meet her today or tomorrow at a cookout. I hope it goes well, I'm nervous about it. I haven't mentioned the age difference on my blog but it's pretty big, I'm 28 and he's 44, which makes his daughter 20. It hasn't been an issue until I thought about meeting his daughter when she came home from school and how she might feel. I guess I just don't want her to be uncomfortable. Hopefully it works out and we get along, fingers crossed.

My mother met him last night and they got along great. She really liked him and we all had a good time. We just met and had a drink after my weigh in and before the graduation. I didn't want to make the first time they met this big drawn out affair, just 30 minutes no pressure, have a good time. I think it was a good decision and I'm pretty happy she approves since her opinion matters a lot to me.

I'm looking forward to the weekend and will post an update when I get a chance. Everyone have a great one, get out there and do something, it's summertime :)

today is weigh in day

Today is my weigh in day (well tonight at 445 actually). I've been getting up and going to the gym in the morning and it's been fantastic. I feel great at the beginning of the day and motivated to stay OP all day long. Hopefully this shows up on the scale and I lose!

Tonight I am going to a graduation for my friend's daughter and then the after party for desserts and drinks. Hopefully I will have enough time in between my weigh in and the graduation that I can grab some dinner or I'm probably going to be stuffing my starving face with desserts lol.

Time to get ready for work. Two more days til the weekend :) it's supposed to be beautiful for the entire weekend. I can not wait!

weekend update

So I did end up going to the Red Sox game and it was unbelievable. On top of seeing Fenway for the first time it was drizzling a little so not everyone showed up and we got to sit about 8 rows back from 1st base. Then of course there was the grand slam and they played a great game (and won)...amazing!

We had a great time, cramming onto the train, going to all the resturants and bars, taking pictures and watching the game. Definately one of the best times that I've had in a long time.

Might have gone a little off plan with the number of beverages and a fenway frank (of course) but it was one day and I am back on plan today :)

Ladies Night

I had a GREAT time out last night. Our costumes were fantastic and people knew that we were dressed up like the ladies from Sex and the City. It was so much fun. I definitely have missed having just a night out with the girls. We promised that we would do it again in August but come up with something else to do, perhaps a night away.

We had a bunch of snacks and numerous pink beverages. Typically I drink light beer so this was sort of different. We went to TGIFridays and had this drink that they actually put cotton candy in! It was so tasty. I've never even had cotton candy before but I can see why people like it.

Today I'm going to Boston with the new guy. He wants to see the Red Sox but I'm not sure the weather is going to hold up for that. I hope so though since I've never been to Fenway or seen the Red Sox play, it would be so sweet (and a surprise since he just called me about it this morning!!!)! Regardless I'm sure it'll be a great day anyway :)

I lost .5lbs at my weigh in last night :)

Today is Friday and I'm going to see Sex and the City with the girls tonight. It's going to be fun but a late night. The movie doesn't start until 9:55 so we are meeting for drinks at 6:30, dinner at 8. I think it's going to be a crazy night :)

I looked up the menu at the restaurant we are going to and there are definitely items on there that I can eat without worrying about going over my points. I'm just worried they will want to order apps instead of eating and those aren't really looking that good for me lol. It's only one night though and I know how to not go overboard.

Other than tonight I've got no plans for the weekend. Hopefully something comes up for tomorrow night and I'm pretty sure it will :) Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

This week is dragging

This week is going by so slowly. I'm looking forward to Friday night when I get to go out with the ladies to see Sex and the City 2. We are dressing up like the characters (not my idea but I'm getting used to it and have the perfect outfit so I'm getting excited about it. I'm supposed to be Carrie since I have blonde curly hair and that's who I got assigned to be lol. My dress is a TINY hot pink fitted dress with lime green underneath. I'm wearing it with some peep toe sandals that are the same color. The outfit is fantastic and didn't cost me a dime since my friend has had it in her closet for years.

Tonight I took it easy. I didn't have to go to the gym after work since I got up and went this morning (YAY ME!!!) so when I got a call to go out for dinner I could go no problem. I ate 1/2 a grilled chicken Cesar wrap and a few fries, not really that hungry today. Then came home and watched Hell's Kitchen and did a manicure and pedicure. Did my toes in hot pink to match the dress with black tips like a french manicure but with color. Never did this before but it came out pretty good actually.

Going to go to bed now so I can get up and go to the gym in the morning :)

I just don't get it

I got flowers today at work from the new guy that I've gone out with a few times. They are really beautiful, slightly orange maybe coral long stem roses. Orange is even my favorite color and I'll admit I did not expect them whatsoever. So when they got there you'd think I would be just so happy, I mean I would think that, but nope I had to leave the office because it made me cry (not a lot but my eyes definately filled up with them). I don't know if it was just so touching or if I freaked out a little. I just don't know why I can't handle this attention? It blows my mind.

I didn't make it to the gym this morning but I did go after work. I did 35 minutes on the arc trainer and then strength training for my legs. It felt great but tomorrow I'm going to try to get up in the morning and go. I did my laundry tonight so hopefully I can get home early and just relax after work.

weigh in results and the weekend

I didn't get time to write after my weigh in on Thursday but I was down -1.8lbs which makes a grand total so far of -34lbs! Very exciting, I only have 2lbs to go until I reach my goal weight of 128. Now I'm thinking that I might be able to lower my weight a little more, I definately never thought I'd actually be in the 120s :)

This weekend was pretty good, not as exciting as last weekend but fun all the same. On Friday night I went out for dinner, and then out for a few beverages with some friends.

Saturday night I worked for my first non-training shift as a bartender. It was a pretty easy function and I was working with one of my friends so we had a fun time. I did forget to get something to eat before it and ended up snacking on a few brownies but lesson learned, eat before work. And really I had gone to the gym in the morning so not too much damage done there.

Sunday I didn't do too much just went to the gym and then relaxed. It's bed time now and I'm ready to attempt to get up and go to the gym tomorrow morning before work.

Back on schedule

Well it's not like I've totally been off plan but I have been off my regular schedule since I haven't been able to work out. I started going back to the gym on Saturday and finally and have kept it up since. Today was my hard day at work and it was super busy.

After work I went to my Oma's house for dinner since she is going out tomorrow night (when I usually go). She made a fantastic dinner of shake and bake chicken, brussels sprouts, sugar snap peas and salad. It was great.

Right after that I went to the gym (couldn't get up this morning to go if my life depended on it lol) and I did 40 minutes on the arc trainer, 20 minutes running on the treadmill and then strength training for my arms. It felt great. It was my first regular work out since I got my tattoo done.

Now it's time for my all time favorite reality show, Hell's Kitchen. It is so exciting. I love Chef Gordon Ramsey no matter how much of a jerk he can be. I can't wait to pick my favorites :)
