Good morning my lovely sparkers! I hope you are all up and at it already. I am dusting off the sleep still. Stayed up till 2am watching movies! Transformers of all things! But I couldn't bring myself to go to bed in the middle of the last movie (even if Pooh did fall asleep right after putting the movie on!!) So naturally I did not rise early today!
Oh well! I will shake it off soon and begin my day! I will have to break out the Leslie dvds sometime today to get my workout in. It is super hot outside already! So I am not going out in it if I can help it!
Still no sign of Hunter! Guess he is going to be a typical first born and stay in there as long as they will let him! Much to my daughter's dismay. Poor baby girl! :(
As to the big breakfast diet, yesterday was pretty much the same as the rest of the week, no food cravings until almost dinner time. Guess we will see what the week brings. :)
Well, that's my update! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! :)

Good morning ya'll. I am still shaking off the funk that I woke up in this morning after hearing last night that a dear friend (like a father) from my past life had passed away. He was a dear, sweet man who's life was not all that great. But he was always there for me when I needed a shoulder. Having been in a coma for most of this year as a result of a motorcycle wreck, I know that he is in a better place now. May he rest in peace.
My weigh-in this morning revealed that I have lost 1 lb this week! I am back down to 235 lbs. So, obviously I have not gained weight eating the big breakfasts, but I have also not done any better than before this new diet. I am going to see what next week brings before switching back to my healthier foods. I will tell you that I have not followed the diet to the letter either! I have found it difficult this week to eat dinner like a pauper! Dinner time is time with the family and I usually eat a little healthier than they eat, while still eating basically the same foods. Take last night for example, pizza was not eating like a pauper. I did have more salad than pizza, but pizza was not on the big breakfast diet!
I am going to strive to do better this week by following the diet rules by eating lighter at dinner. I shopped yesterday with this idea in mind! I purchased meals for Pooh and Piglet that I do not partake of, purposely so that I will not be tempted and can stick to my own diet! I also purchased lots of good healthy berries and fruits for lunch and dinner (and the occasional snack). :) Wish me luck!
I hope that everyone has a happy and productive weekend!

Good morning my sparklys! :) Aunt Lucy is dragging me down this morning, but I am starting to get in the groove. I can feel the distant spark! :)
Also, I peeked at the scale this morning and the scale reflects my original weigh-in from the Saturday before vaca! Woo Hoo! Hopefully by Saturday I will have my one pound additional loss! Breakfast was good! Filling, but only 600 calories today.
Yesterday went the same as Tuesday, I was full all day until it started getting close to dinner time. Need to watch which yogurts that I am buying though! I didn't realize that I had grabbed the highest calorie yogurt in the entire store! Dummy! So, I was a little over on my calories for the day.
Had a exciting finish to the work day yesterday! I found my girl Leslie Sansone on YouTube and did a quick 10 minutes of her routine while packing up for the day! ::cheesy grin::
I hope you all have a fab Thursday! I am planning to rock this one out! :)
