So my obsessing still hasn't taken place yet and is still more of a blur, but I guess you can say it's stil a partial obsession as I THNK about what I should be doing daily. If only I can manage it somewhere in the day.

I will. I will. I know I've got to break these excuses and kick my own butt.

So my goals are simple, run and Shred. I know if I get this habit going daily I can flourish from there. My diet is relatively simple. I use the Happy Herbivore meal plan. I love it because it's the individual plan so I just make my meals separate from the families without any complaint. Actually, they still complain, but whatever. LOL It's really weird as I notice right away anymore if I stray from the plan (it's vegan so ya know, to help with blood pressure and diabetic issues) and let me tell you if I eat a pizza ..whoa dizzy, puffy etc. So, keeps in on track this meal plan does. And wanna hear something really crazy?! I think it's helping with the teenage mutant ninja fat cells.

The scale dropped for the first time in AGES!!! It was only two pounds, but it I'm hoping with the runs and Shred it really really moves then.

Also, I have been talking with my three girls and we decided it was time to throw away the raggedy bag lady look. We are all trying to make a conscience effort to look a little better, even if we "aren't doing anything". So, in doing so I took a look at my wardrobe. Interesting, I don't have one. This could be part of the problem. You think I'm kidding? I literally have one pair of jeans, one yoga pants, one bike shorts, a couple of "run or dye" "gem run" tshirts and hubby's shirts. I'm not kidding. I've been putting off buying clothes as it makes me cry, I guess I didn't realize it's been that long.

but it'll have to wait longer. Maybe next payday. I'm trying to pay off my Bug repair.

OH!! Speaking of the blue bug aka: invisible bug. It's gone. I traded my beloved bug for a 2013 Chevy Sonic so big trucks will quit trying to flyswatter my car. That and the A/C going out in 110 degrees was kind of the final straw, especially while overheating on the freeway. In any case. In as much as I loved having a beetle bug, I don't miss the heartache and so I'm pretty happy with my very crappy deal of a sale, Sonic.

What else, what else.....Dang it...I always think of a blog when running....

eh, I guess I'll go running then. :o)

s"eya" next time!!

I have been going through my wardrobe and giving clothes away like crazy. Normally I pack them away after to lose weight - but I guess that just gave me the back up I needed to slack off and still have clothes to wear. This time I am giving all my fat clothes away!! I will admit it is kinda scary - but I am determined I an not gonna put this weight back on again! So my cupboards are getting scarce too!

It will be fun to go and get some new clothes. I'm waiting until I can maintain for a little bit - new clothes will be the reward as I always find maintaining so much harder than losing.

    It's great that the scale moved. Congrats on getting it going in the right way.

I hope you love your new car as much as you did your bug. I've had cars like that, they might be a PIA but you hate to let them go.

    That's great to hear that the scale did finally move for you, even though it was 2 pounds. 2 pounds is 2 pounds though!

It is wonderful that your daughters are also trying to look better too, that is so neat!
