Yay! It is Friday and I think I am finally over being a negative whinny biotch! :) My alarm went off at 3:30 a.m. and I jumped out of bed raring to go!! You know what is odd to me? Yesterday was a fast day, and I made it, but I was bored all day so it was very difficult not to eat (see what I did there? I realized I wasn't hungry, I was just bored. Ah yeh, I'm learning to recognize the whys) all day I was REALLY wanting some food. Then this morning when I got up, well you might think I'd binge or something, but nope. I was almost not hungry at all. Just thought that was interesting.

So it is Friday. You'll notice that little box to the right where it says 2010 Weigh Ins, but I have made the executive decision to not weigh today. Booooooo Hissssssss! I have done good this week, but I am experiencing something that can often cause bloating, etc. I know I have to learn to deal with this kind of thing. I mean, not every week is going to have some big loss. But, I can't really afford to go into some depressed downward spiral right now. Especially since I am going to visit my mom this weekend who will inevitably say, "You aren't eating enough," or worse yet she'll cook 'healthy'. It is healthy because the butter melts into the chicken and you can't see it btw...only unhealthy if it is fried. Lol. I think that it may be a good self control lesson to myself not to weigh today because I was seriously having the desire to go buy my own scale yesterday. I was working out the logistics like, "I wonder if I can find a scale just like Candy's so it will be accurate..but she won't want me to buy one so I can't ask her where she got it...but it is a nicer one so I bet she got it at Target, not Wal-mart.." And so on, and so on. See people, I really do have a problem with the scale. Maybe waiting another week to weigh in is a good thing, plus I'll hopefully have a loss by then and that is always fun :)

This weekend I am going to Waco, Texas. Woohoo! The black hole of Texas as I like to call it. I'm excited, especially since I get to see my sister Tootie and take a swimming lesson with her. Pics will be posted. Maybe they will motivate me to keep swimming because she has a great body. I am worried though. My mom has assured me we will eat healthy all weekend. But my mom has never counted calories. She thinks she is doing good with eating a salad covered in ranch dressing. All I can do is my best though. I will just have to practice really good portion control. I was also thinking of volunteering to make us dinner Saturday night or something. Maybe make one of those Veggie pizzas I made the other day. Hmmmm.....good idea! I think I'll try it :D

I am so psyched about next week. The rain is supposed to go away and it is supposed to be in the 60s! Yay! There is the Texas I know and love! That also means that I have no more excuses not to be running more. And I neeeeeeed to run more! My goal is going to be to run 3 miles Sunday, Monday, and Wednesday. I know I can do this!!

So, today I am due to do a Perfect 10 Challenge Update. I'm sorry to say I haven't really improved much on my goals since last weeks update :( I have been doing more crunches, but that was only 100 crunches three days of the week. Sleep has also been lacking the last couple of days because my husband has really wanted to talk to me when he comes to bed. I may have to talk to him about that, because I can really feel a difference when I just get 6 hours of sleep as opposed to 8. This next week I am determined to really kick it up on the challenge. 2/10 weeks are already gone! Feels like we just started yesterday!

And here is the part where I post something that not everyone knows about me..Hmmmm....

I have never been, and have no desire to go, on a roller coaster!
I want to sky dive, but for some reason this terrifies me to no end, lol.

Alright, well i have already spent way more time on here than I intended. I still need to pack for my trip. I will REALLY try to update my blog on Saturday, but I can't make any promises. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

((Woops! Forgot to say how I'm doing of on my 21 day habit changing goal of becoming more sassy by spending some time every morning and some extra time every week to groom and get pretty. I'm happy to say that I've now made it 12 days without stopping!! Very excited to be forming this new habit, and every day I'm rewarded by compliments and my husband saying he can't stand it if I get any prettier :) Oh well, he'll just have to learn to deal with it.))
