Happy Wednesday Y'all!!!

I had my weigh in/meeting last night...and I was pretty pumped about going. I weigh at home everyday...so I knew I was going to have a loss. In the past, there have been some discrepancies between my scale and the one at the meeting...but last night they were pretty close.

I lost 3.4 for a total of 28.2.


Last week, I was so close to the 25 pounds lost mark...and now, I'm close to 30 pounds lost. I could get used to those kind of results!! Ha.

I do feel like the more I lose, the more motivation/momentum I have. I'm hoping I don't lose it all on vacation!!


Happy Friday (BARELY!)

It's actually about 11:45 on Friday night...so this may technically be a Happy Saturday! post by the time it's published.

Where have I been? What have I been doing?

Um, nowhere and nothing.


So, random updates it is!

We FINALLY got new phones. My sad little 4s was really giving me struggles. It was a great phone though...and I was being nostalgic (and cheap!) about getting a new one. But, I was getting to where I couldn't send texts unless I rebooted my phone. That's not that big of a deal....if your power button works...which, mine did not. So I would have to run down the battery to make it turn off. Kind of a whippin'. The other night it sat on 1% for almost an hour!!! C and I watched youtube videos. We looked and Instagram and Facebook. We called my mom. Still hanging out with that last little 1% of the battery. I wish the first 99% had that kind of longevity!!

Anyway I got the 6 and C got the 6 Plus. I opted to get more memory (and be able to actually hold my phone) instead of getting the plus. The good news is we are super fancy now (kidding) and our payments stayed the same. Yay!!

And...we got gift cards when we updated our phones (double yay!) so we ended up getting our cases for free!! WINNING!!

C got a boring case but I got this cute one!!

What else? BOTH of our vehicles broke down this week. That was all kinds of fun. We are in just about the same boat with our vehicles as we were with our phones. I don't think we are going to be getting super nice upgrades for the same price in the new vehicle department though. Ugh. I do think we will have to break down and get a new(er) vehicle for one of soon though. C has an old work truck and we are about to have invested more in it that 1) we paid for it and 2) it's worth.

The rescue group we are volunteering for (a cat rescue group) is leaving the location we have been volunteering at. I'm SO sad. We were really enjoying our time with the little bitties. I thought it would sort of give me a cat fix until we are ready (and by "we" I mean "Charlie" cause I'm ALWAYS ready to adopt ALL the kitties) to adopt again. We will have to find another group to volunteer for.

one of the rescue cats. look at her heart nose!
We leave for Vegas in a little over a week. I have a to-do list about a mile long...and the only thing I've scratched off is buying new phones...and that was just like 4 hours ago.

OH...and finally...just a small update on my weight loss since I have missed the last two Weigh In Wednesday's. I'm at 24.8 pounds lost. Gave major stink-eye to the scale on Tuesday when it didn't hit the 25 pounds lost mark. Oh well...I guess it will happen eventually!



I went to my meeting last night...not really sure what to expect. My scales at home seem to be anything but consistent...and my weight can fluctuate up to 5 pounds a day. I just kind of said a prayer before I left for my weigh in. 

It must have worked! I lost 1.6 for a total of 23. My scale at home has me down to 25 pounds lost (or 27 on a good day) but...WW is my "official" scale so we will just go with that.

A couple of years ago, I lost almost 40 pounds at Weight Watchers. And then I hit a really rough patch in my life and gained it all back..plus about 25 pounds. While it's super depressing to admit, I am excited that most of that "extra" weight is almost gone. I still have such a long (LONG) road ahead of me, but I feel like I'm finally getting some footing. 

How are y'all?



Um, it's March!!

I feel like this year is zipping by. Which is silly, when I think about it, because I've done a whole lot of NOTHING most of the days!!

Proof: here's a recap of my February goals. I'm not even sure why I wrote them out a month ago.

:: work out 10 times
:: hit the 25 pounds lost mark 
:: refinish buffet
:: refinish dining room chairs
:: go to eye doctor and get new glasses & contacts
:: get new phones
:: go to church every Sunday (MISSED ONE)
:: daily exercises
:: go to Stock Show (with Dalton!)
:: do the Cowtown 5k
:: blog 10 times
:: read 8 books
:: read Bible regularly
:: work on budget (ongoing)
:: cards calender (send!)
:: make bracelet
:: go to WW meeting EVERY Tuesday
:: wash Jeep (seriously)
:: start organizing my pictures
:: run special for TND

The good news is I did work out several times. I quit keeping track, but I'm fairly certain it was at least 10 times...so we are just gonna go with that. And, we've done our daily exercises EVERY day. Shocking...but yay! We missed a Sunday at Church. I did read 4 books. But my whole goal was to read 5 a month...so I'm in a perpetual state of playing catch up now. I missed one WW meeting (this past week...thank you icy roads). According to the scale at home I am down 25 pounds...but it likes to mess with me. So, we'll see what happens tomorrow night at my meeting.

Anyway, I'm feeling motivated to start accomplishing more of the things I want to accomplish (about time, yes?!). I keep thinking if I set less goals, I'd be more likely to get them checked off. But, I'm never one to make it easy on myself.  I'm being just as ambitious with my March goals. Pray for me.
:: work out 15 times
:: hit the 35 pounds lost mark
:: refinish buffet & dining room chairs
:: get new clothes for Vegas trip (I need new clothes in the worst way!!)
:: go to eye doctor and get new glasses & contacts
:: get new phones
:: go to church every Sunday
:: finish (and win!) the diet bet I started in Feb.
:: daily exercises
:: new makeup!!!
:: get the ball rolling with school stuff
:: color hair
:: blog 10 times
:: read 9 books (eek)
:: read Bible regularly
:: work on budget (ongoing)
:: cards calender (send!)
:: make bracelet
:: go to WW meeting EVERY Tuesday
:: wash Jeep (seriously)
:: start organizing my pictures
:: go to VEGAS (end of month)

Basically, it's a lot more of the same. One of these days I will get that silly buffet (and my dining room chairs) redone. And my Jeep. I'm honestly ashamed at how long it's been since it's been properly washed and detailed. It's sad.

The good news is there is a lot of shopping planned for the month. I have put off buying stuff for so long that now I almost have no choice but to go get ALL THE THINGS. Ha. That should be fun though, right?
