Ok.. I forgot to blog yesterday... I'm sorry.... forgive me? :)
I have my living room all Christmasy now. Our tree is up, decorations are out... it looks pretty good... even if I'm not quite finished, it's really close. My dining room is still decorated for Thanksgiving... but the day after the feast that will change. :)
I really don't have too much to blog about.
I'm not doing well on the challenge. I keep eating too much, moving and drinking water too little, forgetting the vitamins and so forth... it's just sad... especially since I recognize these problems and yet... still allow them to continue. And that's what it is... I'm allowing myself to falter. Ugh... my excuses are that I'm tired, depressed, overwhelmed, and just plain ol' lazy. I'm at work right now... still (it's after 7PM), and I wanna go home so bad, but I have at least an hour's more stuff to do... (why am I blogging now?, I needed a break!!!)
I need some support, encouragement, advice, and empathy. Y'all ever get this way?
Well... back to the work!

Ok... this here is that blog I've been promising to do, seein' how it is part of the challenge to blog weekly. :) Looks like my blog days will be Mondays so long as I remember. :) Mondays will be good, too, since that's right after the weekend, and perhaps that will force me to do better, seein' how I'm gonna have to tell on myself anyways. :)
So... we're one week into the Jiggle the jingle challenge and I have not been doing well at all. My eating is out of control, my exercise has been nil, I've forgotten to take my vitamins nearly every day, I'm not drinking my water like I have been previously, and my mood has been pretty down lately. Bummer of a week last week, really.
But today picked up big time... I got up at a good early hour, ate oatmeal for breakfast (and coffee!) and walked a mile on the ol' dreadmill while watching Vampire Diaries (love that show) did a ton of laundry (while watching even more Vampire Diaries) and even got to talk to a really good friend I met here on spark! That was absolutely terrific! (love ya, girl!!) then I did more laundry and watched more Vampire Diaries, but... I did pig out on crackers with cheese and peanut butter. :/ My fault for not having a lunch planned and eating in front of the TV. ... anyhow, then I made a huge pot of chili for supper, did even more laundry, and then this evening attended the quorum court meeting where my daughter's flag design was accepted via an official resolution! It was a contest for our county school students (celebrating the 100th year of our court house) and my daughter's was picked! She got an official copy of the Resolution and $50! How cool is that? !!!! :) They had 3 flags total made... 1 is flying at the court house. Way cool.
So... today is a good start to this week and hopefully I'll do better on the vitamins, food and water and keep up with the dreadmill mile.
I don't know how much weight I can lose between now and Dec 15th (last day of the challenge)... any loss will be welcomed. I just want to stick to this one! I"m so bad about fizzling out!!! I don't want to fizzle again. For me... fizzling out also equates to a weight GAIN and that's the pits.
I think I can beat the fizzle this time!!!!
