Well shoot, I don't remember now. I guess if its important it will come back to me. Today was a good day. I was able to mow some in the yard and Shannon and I were able to walk too. Not a whole lot going on today. Well unless you count my puppy, Lady, eating a dead rat eventful, YUCK! You'd have thought it was me with a Starbucks Frap, when I found her with it. At first she was going to bring it to me, maybe to share with Mommy, yuck! But when she got that I was trying to get it from her, she took it and hauled but to the horse pasture, where there's an electric fence and I couldn't get to her and chowed down like it was Thanksgiving dinner . No kisses for Mommy tonight. Did I say YUCK?
On a happier note, I want to let all of my Sparkfriends know that I love you guys. You are a great help to me and I love being able to go through these changes with all of you. If there is ever anything I can do to help you, please let me know. Big 's to all of my 's.

Yep, in celebration of moving to stage 2 with Spark and just feeling frisky, this 38 year old went and got her belly button pierced!! AND, I may have also found someone to do my next tattoo too. This day has been awesome. I didn't do my walking today, thanks to the severe thunderstorms that came through this afternoon, but I'm going to make it up tomorrow. I really need to come up with something to do when we get rained out.

Since I didn't blog yesterday, this one will be about yesterday and today.
Yesterday, I weighed and found out I lost 8 lbs since I last weighed about a month ago! I'm averaging about 2 pounds a week, is my guess. But I'll be more accurate in the future because we finally have our own scales. I swore after watching my mom struggle for so many years, that scales were one of the tools of the devil and I'd never have them in my home. Well, now look at me, lol. I've overcome my fear of the scales and found a nice one, thanks to my sister's (swebb4481) recommendation. We purchased it from WalMart for about $25. Its a weight watchers scale that keeps up with your weight and bmi.
Last night Shannon and I did yoga and walked again. The yoga was definitely easier than it was the first time and I found that I was able to enjoy it more. I tried using the pedometer for our walk, to keep up with how we progressed, and something didn't work right. I know we walked further than 1.25 miles, cause we've clocked it in the car. So we're still trying to tweak that. I was also able to obtain an unwanted snack during our walk. I don't know what it was, other than it flies and was half way down my throat before I could stop it. (Note to self, work on walking and not breathing through my mouth) No, I didn't add it to my nutrition tracker and have no plans on repeating that in the future and thanks for laughing at me sister dear lol.
Today, has been pretty lazy. I have some bug bites that kept waking me up itching last night, so I didn't sleep good. With my allergies acting up as well, I decided to take a benadryl this morning to try and find some relief. What I got was about a 4 hour nap, which would have been more helpful had I not been dreaming my butt off the whole time. My DH brought me home some caladryl too so hopefully that'll start helping soon.
We had turkey tacos for dinner that was pretty good but the high point of my eating was trying the new orchard chicken sub from Subway, for lunch. It was DELICIOUS!!! Full of chicken, apples, raisins, cranberries...I'd love to find a recipe for that!!

Time sure is flying! Well today was very productive. I spent about 2 1/2 hours mowing and weeding in the yard today, and I finally conqured the creek! The creek runs through our front yard and when we moved in here, it was severely overgrown and neglected. I finally got all the grass, trash, weeds, etc...taken care of, so that when I mow now, I should be able to just mow it like the rest of the yard. It's a small victory, but I am really enjoying it. I could actually see the rain water running through it from my living room window, beautiful.

I completed and posted my collage today. I started downloading a bunch of pictures and found a cool website (smilebox.com) to put it together on. At first, I didn't know where to begin, so I started with things I need to remind myself, like i love me and never give up (gotta love Charlie Brown). As I was finding these things, I decided to look for women that I admire and who I consider beautiful. I have no dillusions of ever being as thin as Sandra Bullock, (seriously, if I was that skinny with my frame, it would not be healthy or beautiful...more like cadaverish, lol) but I believe her to be a good person and I admire her courage and the way she carries herself. She cracks me up, and she is a wonderful actress. Then, there is Queen Latifa. She is a voluptuous woman. She is funny, successful, beautiful, and versatile, to say the least. Between music, acting and whatever else she has on her plate...she is a busy, busy woman. Then there's Sara Ramirez. She's the orthopedic surgeon on Grey's Anatomy. She is a beautiful woman who's weight fluctuates like a real live person...yeah serioiusly! And not only that, she is a great actress who has yet ceased to amaze me. There's also Marilyn Monroe. Who would have thought, that in her day, she was a size 12? Get outta here!! Granted, I know sizes tend to change over the years, but a size 12 is what it is, and in Hollywood, back in her day? I say KUDOS to Marilyn! Those are just a few. There are more and I liked doing this so much I'll probably do more of them for motivation.
