{October 29, 2012}   Weight Loss Update

Here’s a short little update for you!

I am down 2 more pounds since last week making my weight loss at 38 pounds total now! Woohoo! That’s all I have to say in that regard, but I also wanted to use this update to wish everyone in Hurricane Sandy’s path safety and PLEASE take the warnings seriously and take all precautions you can! From someone who lives in the South and has SEEN what Hurricanes can do, they are nothing to mess with and they need to be taken very serious! There’s always a chance that the next storm that hits you is the BIG one that no one THOUGHT would happen. 😦

I hope all my East Coast bloggers, friends and family make it through safely and you are in my thoughts right now!



Welcome!

As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

On to the questions!

1. Who wakes up in the morning with the kids, you or hubby? Not applicable yet…but I will go ahead and answer with what I hope it will be when I DO have kids…I would hope BOTH of us would equally get up and take care of things, as in taking turns, but I also realize things don’t always happen as you wish LOL

2. Do you watch the World Series even if your team isn’t in it? I’m not a big sports person so I don’t watch it regardless…my husband watches it no matter what, though

3. What is the best compliment you have received? I’m not sure, I’m the type of girl who doesn’t like to reflect on compliments much because I kind of feel undeserving when someone DOES…which I know that’s not always a good thing but it’s just something I have to learn to accept

4. Do/did you dress up to take your kids trick or treating? Another non applicable one 😦 When I DO have kids, though, I think I probably will because I think it’s fun to have an excuse to act like a kid again!

5. Do you have a favorite bible verse? What is it and why? I think Philippians 3:14-“I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”

(On a side note: I have a Raffle going on to win a Jewelry Candle of your Choice, tickets are only $1 each and a Max. of 5 allowed per person! I have 9 spots left if you or anyone you know are interested! Either let me know here or message me on FB-link is on the right side of the page! Thanks! 🙂 )

{October 22, 2012}   Take Two!

The news you’ve all been dying to hear..well, not really, but hopefully you’re just a teensy bit interested. I lost two more pounds this last week! That puts me at 36 pounds lost in total and 14 pounds to go to hit my Christmas goal. The closer I get, the more possible it looks!

But there’s something else I am excited about. Since I’ve been with my husband, I have always weighed more than him. Yea, that’s an embarrassing fact for me to admit, but it’s honest. And I want to be completely honest to help me get to where I want to be. As much as my husband loves me regardless of my size, I’ve always had a wish to weigh less than him. You usually think of the big being the Bigger one and the woman being the smaller, right? And I’ve just always had a wish to BE smaller, not just in my height, but in my weight. Well…now I’m really close to that. All I need is literally 4 more pounds loss and I will weigh less than my husband. When I mentioned this to him, he kind of groaned. At 6’1″, all his weight is in his belly and while not healthy for him, at least his fits his frame a lot better than my 5’5″ one. So…I’m getting close to having my secret wish come true and looking forward to making my goal and seeing what beyond that holds in store for me!

*And now, for Part Two!*

This is completely unrelated to my weight loss goals, but I just wanted to share with everyone about a Raffle I am holding on Facebook to win a Jewelry Candle. Tickets are $1 each and I also have a chance for you to win a free ticket for anyone interested. Click here to enter!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. Where do you hide junk when people come over? Is it bad to say I despise having guests over? I would just rather go to their place or somewhere else….Not enough hiding places to move all my junk around and I SO was not created as a neat and tidy woman!

2. Do political ads help you decide who you are going to vote for? No, they don’t…I fast forward through them 🙂 Thank you, DVR!

3. What’s your favorite holiday party to host? Did someone miss the answer to my first question…I don’t like having guests over therefore the only way I would host is if it’s somewhere else LOL…and so far I haven’t hosted anything so I really don’t know!

4. You go to an island with your husband and can only take one personal item. What is it? My Kindle Fire….with an unlimited battery somehow? LOL…..Darn, or could I tape a bunch of books together? Wait…how long am I on this island? Am I stuck forever or is it just a vacation? cause if it’s for a few days, one book is fine…if I am stuck forever, then well…I’m screwed! No pun intended……

5. If you found out your spouse was a Dexter style serial killer (only kills people to save others) would you rat? Wow, well, first of all, that would be a little creepy to know my husband was a killer and it’d be kind of hard to overlook what he’s doing even if it was (supposedly) for a good reason….I might not rat him out but I think it would definitely be a marriage ender….I mean, killing people is kind of a huge turn off, just saying!

What do you think you’ll read next? The only time I can ever seem to answer this right is when I have Library books because I have a deadline in which to read them by! At the moment, who knows? I am pretty confident in saying it will be something on my Kindle, though. 🙂



{October 15, 2012}   Short and sweet update

This is a short update about my weight because my head has been bothering me all day. 😦 I went to the doctor today for my Check in and I am down another 3 pounds for a total loss of 34 pounds since I started ALMOST 3 months ago. Only 16 more to go until Christmas! 🙂

Sorry I don’t have any more to say for today. See everyone next week for another check in and let’s hope I don’t have a headache then! 😦

On to the questions!

1. Did you have any homecoming traditions? I’m going to say No cause the only Homecoming I am familiar with is the High School kind and I didn’t go to any of those

2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money? Most of the time, but I don’t specifically have to ask him for permission or anything

3. If you could be famous for something what would it be? I would love to be a famous blogger/writer 🙂

4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy? Frequently! LOL

5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? I DON’T eat Steak and yes, I am aware that as a Texan, that makes me weird…..IF I eat a Burger, which I haven’t in forever, then well done, I guess

{October 10, 2012}   WWW Wednesday for Oct. 10th, 2012

I’m not doing my regular post today because nothing has changed since last week. I am STILL reading “The Traveling Vampire Show” by Richard Laymon. Just a lot of other things I have been busy doing and haven’t had as much time for reading. BUT I’m getting closer to the end of the book so I WILL have a regular post next week!
