***two days no blog???? AWW HELL NAW!!!!***

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I feel like I have been away from Spark for months! In actuality, it has been two days. . .actually no. . .I logged in yesterday to record my workout. . .but . . . AWW HELL. I haven't BLOGGED in two days. I better get it in because tomorrow morning I fly out to Atlanta to spend a few days with my best friend for her 30th birthday. Between the soul food emoticon emoticon and the drinks emoticon emoticon I may be too ashamed to return! I actually told my friend that I was not interested in going to the Daquiri Bar because I choose not to drink my calories. She laid into me. She said that I needed to relax and that she did not want me counting calories and all that nonsense on her birthday weekend. I told her that I DO NOT DRINK MY CALORIES and that I will partake in ONE daquiri and that is me compromising. I told her that I would love to try hot restaurants in Atlanta but we wouldnt be doing appetizers and deserts. I told her that I WILL be up early every morning to go to the gym and I will try my best not to interrupt her sleep. We agreed that she would respect my lifestyle change if I promised to endulge occasionally over the weekend. AGREED.

Did I mention that it is 9:30 pm and I have to be up at 5:30 am and I have packed nothing. Flying by the seat of my pants over here! I guess I just haven't found the inspiration to get up.

Actually as I am typing this, I am watching

I love this show! And watching it has made me realize how ANNOYING X Factor is. They spent more time focused on the production and special effects than on finding ACTUAL talent. Not a fan.

As I was going through my pics, I found a picture of me my senior year of college. Try not to laugh folks!

I look like a baby! I was only 21 and YES FOLKS THAT IS MY HAIR! emoticon

Got a weigh in Thanksgiving morning and I need to be at 228.0 and I know it is going to be hard considering I had a cheat meal Tuesday night that cost me a lot of calories and that I didn't work out tonight and I will be on vacay this weekend. My goal is to be the first person in history to lose weight on vacation.

Well there it is. A blog! See you in a few days!

    Oh It's always so much fun to get together with Old Friends! Have a great time visiting, and I think you've got it together, just know your limitations.
    I would indulge a litte, but don't get carried away, you know what to do...because you've been living it!

    Enjoy it and Have a great Thanksgiving too!

    Hopefully she doesn't get too pushy when you get down there. I don't understand why people freak when your diet changes.

    Don't back down from your plan no matter whatshe tries to say. If she's being pushy, then she isn't being supportive, and thus Gould have no sway as to what choices you make.

    Hope it's a blast!

    Enjoy your vacation/party time with your friend. Great job for having a plan of action while you're there. Hope your determination holds up under the pressure to enjoy yourself. Your photo is very pretty, reminds me of my daughter's graduation picture. Her hair is like yours and often times she would get asked that very question "is that your hair" :) Enjoy yourself!!!

    Just because you don't want to drink your calories doesn't mean she will have less fun! If you go to a bar you can just ask for water with a lime wedge. It looks like a Tanq and Tonic and no one will harass you. ;) Have a great time!

    Enjoying somebody's company doesn't necessarily mean eating mindlessly...

    Try to stay true to your goal and even if you overeat a bit, do it with moderation so you won't have to feel bad about it afterwards. Your friend has to respect your effort and how far you've come, and I'm sure she will if you show her your determination.

    Make your own choices and don't let others decide for yourself emoticon

    Enjoy your time in Atlanta and I really admire you telling your friend that you need to be compliant. It gets tough when others aren't worrying about weight. I know I go way off course on vacation so am glad to see you are going to do your best to stay the course!

    Be safe - have fun!

    Enjoy yourself - you can still treat yourself but it sounds like you know what you want and how to get to that point. Be strong and travel safe.

    Love the college picture - it's amazing how young a person looks at 21 when they feel so "grown up" - I just have to laugh at my pictures from college!
