Tonight is the night and I am so excited Breaking Dawn Part 1 the fourth book of the Twilight Saga premiers tonight . The has stopped but it is cold. Burr! When I leave work again, I am going home to change in some warm comfortable clothes. Will not be eating any movie food. Will have some warm soup before I head out to stand in line.
I have fallen way short on my exercising. My son has informed me that he does not want the traditional Thanksgiving dinner
. He wants to make different types of pizzas, flat bread, french bread, personal, etc and pair them with wine. He also wants a bread pudding (I think I will see if I can get a whole one from Bonefish Grill). I think it would be fun for us to do pizza, drink wine and watch movies on Thanksgiving. We will see if he sticks to the idea of homemade pizza for Thanksgiving.
Today was better than yesterday. It is amazing how I looked up and there are three people standing in my door way and the telephone ringing. Due to the holiday next week things are going to continue to be wild and crazy . Tomorrow I will hit the floor running and will not stop until 9 pm or later. Once I leave work, I will be able to regroup and get ready for BREAKING DAWN part I. I have tickets for the opening, midnight show. I am so excited
Time to get some things done. Until tomorrow, Keep Sparking!
All the above words describe my visit to the doctor today.
Blood Pressure 120/80 Can I get a drum roll please Weight 170.
I have lost 16 pounds since May 24, 2011. I am so proud of me . Ten pounds to go and no added pressure. 160 here I come! I have come a long way. It is not about how soon I get the weight off. It is about getting the weight off and keeping it off.
Yes, I am bragging on myself. It has been a struggle for me. I try to stay positive and look at the bright side. There have been times I almost ate myself sick . Enough of the negative. One thing for certain, I REFUSE to let the holidays and pack the weight back on this wonderful feeling and don't forget wonderful looking body of MINE!!
Take a moment and Brag on yourself. If you don't praise yourself for your accomplishments, who will.
