Been busy! Where was I? Traveling for work Saturday, anniversary Sunday (sleeping in, being lazy, visiting my friend & meeting the NEW BABY!!, then fancy dinner, then movie & wine @ home), then a very busy day Monday also. I actually didn't even check my email Monday. I was THAT busy. hahahaha.

I am officially in the "upper 248s" this morning - 248.7, as morning weigh in NOT after running & sweating out a couple pounds. hahahaha. I'm really hoping to see 247 something next week. I have this feeling the scale is starting to move - it's like the other day, suddenly my clothes feel a little bigger, and right after I noticed that the scale moved a bit again. WOOOO. Actually yesterday I kind of felt like my workout pants were going to fall off my entire run... I need to see the Right Out Of The Dryer fit on those & my work pants & see if they're actually baggy or I'm just imagining things. My 16 jeans felt a bit tight, but that was after a full day of pigging out (see below).

Challenge is not too bad. I had a few good workouts this weekend. Eating was okay except anniversary day. We went out to dinner and I enjoyed my big delicious meal, and when we came home we had WINE (we have a million bottles & we never drink it, so we split a bottle. Hahah. That's a lot for me!!!!). I enjoyed it & don't regret any of it. The funny thing is, it would not have been too bad of an over day, except for some reason that afternoon I was like *EAT ALL THE COOKIES AHHHHH!* So I had a good breakfast, then a bunch of random sweets for no apparent reason, then a good dinner. Weird. Meh. Whatever.

Otherwise it's been good. The foot is still on and off, so I run as much as I can and walk when I can't. I like it, just being out enjoying the fall mornings. It is getting cold though! I was freezing on my run yesterday morning. I also probably looked like an idiot, out in my short sleeved shirt with my arms and hands turning red in the cold. haha. I'll go buy some sleeves this weekend...

Oh, cuteness - the restaurant people probably think we are crazy, because Mr. Turtle and I used the time and space between dinner and dessert to build football plays out of sugar/sweetener packets. "Quit moving him, that Splenda is a GUARD remember?" "oh right right, sorry. The sweet n low is the safety..." haaaaaaa. I was inventing a play where all your defensive guys except the required 3 linemen would be safeties.

Me: "And guess what I would call that play?"
Mr. Turtle: "The All Safeties?"
Me: "Noooooo, better."
MT: "I don't know ... the amazing best play ever?"
Me: "NOOO!"
MT: ".... "
Me: "The SAFETY DANCE!" *starts dancing in chair* "Come onnnnn... safety dance!"
Mr. Turtle: "yes, very cute."

Heh. 6 years, people. Don't look at ME; he is the dumb sucker that married me. Hahahahahaha. RUE THE DAY!!

So, the new spark page, huh. Interesting. It's a little... busy. I can't say I love, hate, or have any strong feelings about it, since this is the first moment I've had to REALLY look at it (no internet yesterday!). The only thing I've noticed is it's harder to spin the wheel on my phone. Eh. Talk amongst yourselves...

    Sounds like Mr. Turtle is less turtle and more lobster. :)

I'd never be able to play your table game because I don't understand football.

Stop random snacking on sweets. I'm just sayin. Someone has to call you out. Haha
