Hello Sparkers!

You KNOW there had to be some craziness going on in my life for me to put off a blog bragging about my big loss this week!!! More on that later... First, I'd like to thank you all for the helpful/kind comments about my -0 loss last week (a result of salty restaurant food and mucho bread and wine in San Francisco!). I started last week with a renewed attitude and dedication, as well as a plan to lose the infamous final five pounds by the end of April.

In week 14, after many hikes, bowls of oatmeal, salads, and a run, my body dropped nearly 3 pounds. BOO-YA!!! And it wasn't easy, either- my brother Greg was visiting for his birthday. I did well, though... We went to a Laker game, I had two glasses of white wine (the official beverage of the NBA, no?), at Ventura Beach, I had two pints of Guiness, and when we went out to eat, it was all egg whites and light plates. Watching loved ones eat fried calamari and drink wheat beer to their hearts content could be a capital punishment!

The visit was great. I miss my family so much. We are all spread out, and it's about to be a lot farther out because...


Back in December, Mike applied for a job and interviewed, but we hadn't heard anything since... Until we were waiting at the airport for my brother, and Mike got "the call" and was offered the job. Wowzas. There is so much to think about and DO, but for now, I'm just overjoyed for Mike (he'll be back to archaeology, his love), and in shock that we will be living in paradise. I think our life here in Santa Clarita is pretty amazing...

In week 15, I will keep on keeping on. Keep eating my oatmeal, taking my walks, and reading your wonderful/hilarious/inspiratio
ns posts. Much LOVE to you all this and every week!
