Last night we attended my daughter's holiday violin concert, WOW, very impressive for high schoolers, they performed a Masterworks concert called MAGNIFICANT. I enjoyed the performance very much, so a nice evening thus far.
Hubby, myself and my sis left the concert and DH pulls into 7-11, I can't imagine why he would stop there, but I sat in the car while he went inside. I was watching him from the car, he was standing in front of the donut case, staring into it, in deep thought, trying to make his selection.
I was sitting in the car saying to myself... "oh no he isn't gonna get a donut" - "oh no, he didn't just buy that donut" - well guess what? He had three donuts in the bag. Holy ham, he just didn't know how bad I would have loved to eat that donut, but I was fighting against the strongest person I know... ME - I was fighting myself for a bite of that donut. Well, it was a long silent ride home with the aroma of donuts filling the car.
We got home and he preceeded to eat his donut, and I didn't dare ask for a bite, cuz he knows darn well I didn't really want a bite or need a bite. But oh how I was struggling. He told me on his way to bed that there was one donut left, me and sis could split it. Sis and I both looked at each other - I could read her mind and she could read mine too....both of us were thinking about running to the kitchen for that donut. At the same time, both of us just stopped - We had a little something for that donut....
We popped in the Kenpo P90X and did a round of kickboxing instead. Every punch and kick was dedicated to the donut. We took turns as we were punching and kicking calling out names and flavors of donuts.
BAM, take that you rasperry filled donut - POW, take that you choc eclair. We were doing some serious donut bashing. We were getting a little carried away with the donut name calling, then in the DVD, Tony says "no Krispy Kremes in the house" - we just died laughing. I totally forgot that he says that in the video, but how appropriate and timely was that.
We finished and just laughed at ourselves. We had taken our donut frustration out by punching through the cravings.
Ding, Ding, Ding and the winner is.... Skinnypowell1 and Gr8cgrm

Yesterday goes down in the history books, a red letter day in history....
This will definitely shock my momma, and this may come as quite a shock to my fellow sparkers I actually ate canned green peas - REALLY.
I have detested canned peas all my life, I love frozen peas, but ICKnay on the Easpay, I'm also quite fluent in pig latin
Last night hubby made dinner (thanks honey). We had boneless porkchops, twiced baked potatos, fresh italian bread and then he put a bowl of yucky green peas right next to me. I normally turn my nose up at peas, but last night I decided to try just a spoonful, and to my surprise, a spoonful turned into a 1/4 cup.
I can't believe it - I ATE CANNED PEAS, that's one for the record books, my momma will be so proud when I tell her.

Sheesh, where do I begin. I feel like so much is piled on to do and just not enough hours in the day. It's way too early in the month to be stressin. I just have to make a list and put things in priority order. Do what I can today, then just keep checking things off the list. The list is long. I just keep telling myself, one thing at a time, slow down, breathe, all things will fall into place.
It's all about priorities, hoping I can take my own advice and just do a little at the time.
How do my fellow SP buddies handle stress? I need a magic formula QUICK.

Just wanted to share some super news with all my buds. I have been selected to be in FIRST women's magazine, hitting the newstands on January 28, 2011. I will not be the feature story, just a small sidebar featuring a before and after pic and a few brief words about weight loss. I am so honored to have been selected for this opportunity, I am hoping they will give a shout out to SPARKPEOPLE, since that is how I have managed to accomplish my goals. I certainly mentioned SPARK, almost every other word during my interview - Yeah for SPARK !!!!!
They are providing a hair stylist, makeup artist and a personal stylist who will be bringing me clothes to wear during my 3 hour photo shoot. That's next sunday. I can't explain how excited I am.
I truly believe this opportunity is the "icing on the cake" for me. I've been working so hard and it finally seems like there is light at the end of the tunnel. This is just what I need to push me over the top to finally reach the 100-pound loss mark, only 4 to go.
When I read magazines and see someone's weight loss story, I am truly inspired that they can accomplish such great things. I am hoping someone sees my picture, and it offers them HOPE, that weight loss is achieveable and that it will inspire them. It's all about helping others and I truly believe that we all need to be in the mindset.... "If she can do it, so can I". It is possible guys... hard work, patience and perserverance. So happy that I've made it this far.
Keep on SPARKING yall, we can do this !!!!!!
