I FINALLY posted pictures. I put a couple up of my kids. And then I put pictures up of me in my shirt for the wedding and 2 options for bottoms plus shoes. emoticon Please ignore the not done hair and the no make-up look. Plus the goofy looks as my oldest and I were being silly. Not sure if you can tell but not all my toe nails are painted I was trying on 4 different colors and couldn't decide. LOL Maybe I should have made sure I was looking prime before I posted these. LOL oh well...

Honest opinions, skirt or pants? Black heels or blue heels (if I can wear them)? Oh and what the heck do I do about the farmer's tan. I didn't realize it was so bad until I saw the pictures. I can't put anything over the top because the back of the shirt is open (not sure if you can see that in the photos) and it has lots of extra fabric.

Hey all:) Just reading comments...

Mitchell - so glad to hear from you:) You have a LOT on your plate for the next month. Many prayers coming your way that July will go FAST and productive toward your goals. You are SO right that there are times when we have to focus on ourselves to get to another place.

Ginger - I was laughing reading about your "episode."
You need to get that video before they DO post it somewhere, lol.

Zoe - yay for newborns...congrats! Wishing you a great trip...I'm zealous:) Are you taking a laptop?:)

Cecelia - Wow you have so much going on in the next few weeks. On and off is ok too...at least you are still THINKING about it or you wouldn't be here. When I'm OFF, I'm really OFF:( Praying for stamina, strength, and support for you.

TL - I'm looking forward to a little SLOW DOWN in the next few weeks too. THANK GOODNESS:) I'm off a day or two over the 4th as my Mom is visiting from Louisiana. It will be a nice break. I ate a brownie bite yesterday, but just one....surprisingly so, lol. Hope your day went well.

Jenoli - That a huge workout!! Glad to have you here. Whether a gain, maintain, or loss we are all working to make better lifestyles than the one we hope to leave behind. I'm finally finding a "groove," but it's taken me since Jan. to find it!

Oops almost forgot Shelly:( Did you find shoes? Hoping that things are better with you! You feeling ok or still really sore?

Mom6, thank you :) I'm glad I can be around more often!

Ginger, that would have shocked me, as well! But I bet the video is fun to watch ;)

Zoe, I hope you can start over today! Remember that every day is like a fresh start! I understand that you're feeling unprepared, but you could see it as an opportunity! Of course, we have a lot of unhealthy food, as well, but it is also an opportunity to try the huge variety when it comes to whole grain bread, noodles and rolls! At least in Germany you souldn't have a problem eating clean while still experiencing some new tastes :)

Shelly, I'm glad you had a good time at the concert! And thank you very much! :) Although I have to say when it comes to workout dedication you are my role model! You seem to workout, no matter what. Even with you knees you're still trying to do exercises! That really impresses me!

Cecelia, thank you! =)
I hope you get more ups in this week! Don't let the man-trouble pull you down. Relationships all have their ups and downs, just stick around and the next up will come!

Thanks everyone for supporting me! I guess the first days will be the hardest. I hate being alone :/ Luckily I can drive home to my parents house on wednesday! :)
For today I'm planning to do the workout my fitness page recommends. Tomorrow I'll walk a lot to get to my lectures and on wednesday I'll go biking again. I'm looking forward to the weekend because I ordered a workout DVD on the internet, which should be delivered on friday or so :) Has anyone experience with workout DVDs? Favourites or DVDs that aren't worth the money?
Last week I watched some episodes of the biggest loser on the internet. I never saw the show, so I started at the begging of the last season and I was very impressed. It was the season with Daris, Ashley, Mike and Koli as the final four. They lost so much weight in so little time... It was amazing to see the progress! But I don't really think it is good to lose so much weight in such a short time :/ I hope they can keep their weight down, especially when they are on their own again!
I hope you're having a great day and stay motivated! I'll go through some lectures now!

Hi everyone, I have been away, had to go to the cabin and mow the grass, which had grown to about 18-inches high. I mowed for 8 hours and still have to do the trails., and clean out the garage (the squirrels were having a party over the winter). Ugh!

I am suffering a weight gain despite the workout mowing, I need to get back on track.

Ginger - what an ordeal! I think I would have peed my pants if that happened to me. emoticon Hopefully, you'll find humor in it.

Hello ladies!

I know, I know, I've been out of it and gone for days. Life happens, but I'm so glad you're all logging in and keeping up with it! Makes me proud! I'm still on and off my program. Some days are good, and some days, well, not so much. I still haven't gained weight, but haven't lost either.

This weekend had it's highlights and low lights. On the upside, my bows made their retail debut at Pacific Tanning in Copperas Cove, TX. I'm completely out of inventory, so I'll be working lots this week. I'm so excited to see how my babies do! My lows were emotional wrecks that I'd rather not dredge up (aka stupid husband). Onward and upward...

So on top of replacing all of my inventory, I need to start packing for my oldest daughter. She auditioned to dance with the Tulsa Ballet this summer and got accepted. I need to wash, iron, label, pack, check and recheck lists. We leave next Sunday to drop her off. But in the middle of that, my dad and stepmom will be coming Wed-Fri to visit.

I'll make sure to keep in touch with you all! Miss you ladies!

PS-MITCHELL, glad you're back!

~Cecelia~

Hey, everyone! I can't believe it's Monday already. The weekend flew by since it was so busy. I'm going to enjoy the "slower pace" of the week, since the next two weekends are travel weekends.

All in all, I ended up doing alright last week. I only missed one workout and only went over my calories one time. Huge improvement! Time to tackle this week. I went over my calories yesterday (stupid Father's Day treats), but it's in the past, time to focus on today.

Mitchell - glad you had a good time with your boyfriend. Long distance relationships are so hard, but hopefully time will go quickly until you two are able to be together again.

Ginger - sounds scary in the moment, but looking back, a great family prank. Hope you are able to laugh about it now.

Zoe - your time is going to fly by leading up to your travels! And I agree with Shelly, don't worry about splurges while you travel, you'll probably burn it off sightseeing.

Shelly - traveling with little ones can be so hard! I'm glad your husband helps out, that makes a big difference.

Have a good Monday, everyone!
Tricia

Shelly - I'll be gone from the 11th to the 27th! See yesterday's blog on my spark page for more, plus I'll post a better itinerary before I leave. Writing about it makes it easier for me to realize it's real lol.

Merry Christmas!

Good morning all! We had a blast yesterday at the concert. The next few days are going to be busy. Running kids, my oldest gets her hair cut tomorrow, and all the last minute things I need to do/get before we leave on Thursday. There is so much planning with 2 little kids on a trip like this. Thank goodness my husband is awesome about helping me get everything done.

Ginger - Your family is funny! I bet you were scared for a moment. I'm sure you will get them back sometime in the future. emoticon

Mitchell - Glad you had such a good weekend with the bf. I have to say that I am very impressed with your dedication to your school work and the change in your lifestyle. emoticon

Zoe - You have got a lot going on in the next few weeks! You are going to have a blast. How long are you in Europe for? Where all are you going? I'm positive that you will make good food choices on your trip. Sometimes you have to splurge a little on a trip like this though. I wouldn't worry too much about gaining weight. You will be so busy and on the go that I truly believe you will be ok.

Ginger - oh my! How scared you must have been that few moments before you saw it was your family! Of course it is funny now; think they'll throw the video up on youtube? LOL

Mitchell - sounds like you've been having such a wonderful time with the bf. The month will fly past and then you'll be together again.

Tomorrow I start a temp job for one week (Tuesday through Monday, I know - weird days). Then I'm home a day and go to Coronado to see my family (including my newest niece, Kate, who was born last night). Then I come home a few days and leave for my Europe trip. It's finally happening very fast - I'm so unprepared! It's not just getting myself packed and ready, I have to make sure things at home are set for me to be gone that long. Yesterday I blew my calories for the first time - not just above my recommended amount, but above my BMR! Jumping back into it today and hopefully will have habits instilled enough to get me through trip without gaining everything back.

Well, enough about me - everyone have a great Monday!

~Zoe emoticon

Merry Christmas!

Hey everyone! Happy birthday to everyone who had one. I hope you're all getting on well!


It's been a very busy past few days. Nothing very interesting happened, it was just busy. Well, yesterday... I drove up to the house on my way back from work and parked in front of the garage bay. (It's clear to park in but there is no garage door opener and I am lazy at 5 a.m. and I don't WANT to open the garage door.) SO, I get out of my car and I hear "GET HER!" I scream and jump back as the door slides up and my kids and husband assault me with squirt guns. My boy is immediately sorry he scared his mom and my girl comes to hug me. My dear dear ever so dear husband tells my daughter to go turn off the video camera.

I took his squirt gun and shot him in the face point blank.

Allons-y!

Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat. ~Ann Landers

Good morning everyone!

Rachel, Tracy, happy birthday! I'm sorry I wasn't there to congratulate you on the actual date :( but I hope you had a great day!

Mom6, I'm truly sorry. I had a week with too much work and my boyfriend visited me this weekend, so I was really busy. I still kept track of what I ate and drank and that went well, but I didn't make it to the threads. I' so sorry you had to worry about me!

I hope everyones weekend was good! I had a great weekend with my boyfriend, although we had to learn a lot and do stuff for university. He took off this morning and I'm a bit sad because we won't see each other until the end of juli as we have to write our exams til then. I can't even be there on his birthday :/ Well, I think I'll have to focus on me and my goals for the next month and I hope it will past quick!

Have a great day and take care of yourselves!
