NOTHING that happened today was NORMAL for me.
got snowed in today
got up late
did relatively NOTHING all day
made chef meg's boston baked beans today.. quite yummy
gym did NOT OPEN today... not a happy camper about that.. wednesday is my day to stay as long as i want and kick some royal butt!!!!! not happy that i missed THAT day.
went out to dinner with hubby and had a sinful dessert at the ninety-nine restaurant called Jungle Rumble Pie (It is a petite treat, just like 3 small bites) but boy was it yummy.
then, came home and did 1 whole hour on the wii doing the wii fit free step (constant walking for 60 minutes, yayyyyy)
i had to, i felt awful for not going to the gym AND having dessert, lol!
it was fun, i can watch tv while doing the free step so i got caught up with stuff recorded on my dvr.
all's well that ends well!!
hope all is well with the rest of the world!!

151 LBS GONE FOREVER !!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ME!!!!
Saturday, January 01, 2011
it's been a while since i've blogged. been a really hectic time of year for me. the past few weeks, ok, the whole month of december REALLY.
i started off the month kicking butt with my goals.... not sure what the past 5 days have done to those. won't know until the morning when i weigh in on MY SCALE. it's not easy living healthy and staying the course when you are staying at other people's houses. i've been at my in-laws since the 22nd and just got home today. we were supposed to be home 3 days ago, but our flight from florida got canceled and with all the airport closings due to the storm up the easter seaboard, today was the earliest we could get a flight home. which was sooooo inconvenient for me. i had work commitments i needed to attend to and those just bit the bullet. so i got home around 4pm and had to hop in my car and drive to boston to do my end of the month crap and get a schedule done for next week. needless to say, when the new year got rung in.... i was DRIVING home
not exactly the way i wanted to spend my new year's eve. so, how did you all spend new year's eve?
so, while we were in florida we had an awesome time. well, the whole time except the day we found out our flight was canceled. me, hubby and my son were all angry. we all had work commitments and there was just nothing we could do about the situation, so we made the best of it.
i bought myself a coach purse and pocketbook!!! my son did not like the one i had so he and i went shopping. he says he has enough female friends that he knows what is cool and what is not, so he was the expert. we got a great deal at the coach outlet store at the mirimar outlets. the were having a storewide sale and on top of that, i got a 30% off coupon when i walked in the door. my total bill was only $80!! retail was over $180 at full price. merry christmas ME!!
HUBBY, the wonderful guy that he is, got me my very first diamond earnings!! i am soooooo excited.
and then thursday came around and we decided to take the drive. hubby's sister came over early and we were out of the house by 7am... off to the MAGIC KINGDOM!! yup, we decided if we were stuck in florida we might as well have some fun! so we drove 3 hours to orlando and went to DISNEYWORLD. we had a great loooooong day. didn't get home until 1:30 AM. i'd almost forgot how much fun the rides were. splash mountain, runaway railroad, it's a small world (yes, that song is stuck in my head now) and let's not forget SPACE MOUNTAIN!! a wild rollercoaster in the dark, you have no idea what is coming, it is definitely a heart stopper!!
while i was away i tried to stick to my healthy eating plan and for the majority of the vaca i think i did ok. however, there were a few times i went overboard. like when hubby and i split an apple crisp at this restaurant called 'cheeseburger in paradise' (i had grilled chicken and broccoli for the main course, yay me). and i am sure a few of my servings of food we had at home were a tad on the 'larger than usual' size. but i did get grilled chicken and broccoli and lighter fare whenever i was able to.
i guess we will see when i get up in the am just how successful i was at making good decisions.
it didn't help that i only got to a gym ONCE in the past 11 DAYS!!! i am going to be soooooo hurting when i go tomorrow. get the wheel chair ready, i am going all out!! lol. although, i must say, i got quite a workout walking around disney for 11 hours stopping only for 30 minutes to have lunch (rotisserie chicken, green beans and potatoes) YAYYYY ME.
well, it's almost 1:15 AM so i should probably retire soon.
i wish all of my friends here on the spark a happy and healthy new year. 2011 is OUR YEAR!!
my best to all of you!!
thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog.

i saw this on a friends blog and just loved it so i wanted to share it with everyone!!
Only One Pound
Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat,
And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.
So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.
That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."
(As if that were such a terrible thing.)
For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!
