Happy, Happy Monday

Good morning everyone, and happy Monday. Are we all ready for our week to begin? I wanted to say a Thank you for all of you that have welcomed me back. You guys have no idea how much I have missed you all and really needed to get writing again. I really notice a difference when I’m not blogging it all down and I do not want to go down that path again. So thank you all for not giving up on me and thanks Miss Corletta for still loving me (= (crazy girl )

This weekend I stayed on track with my eating. I basically just prepared for it. I knew I would be busy and not at home for the majority of the weekend so I packed my lunch and had a few things prepared at home so I wouldn’t flirt with the idea of eating out all weekend. I did go last night with my friend Samantha to Olive Garden but I had soup/salad and a few stuffed mushrooms. I was worried that I would want to attack the bread sticks but I didn’t have the urge. I have been noticing that I am starting to realize when I actually am full. I have struggled for years with going hours without eating and then I sit down to eat something and just basically shove it in till it’s gone, it bothered me to see it sitting there, especially if it was smothered in cheese (= So for me I have learned to have three balanced meals a day and a small snack in the afternoon. I am not ready for doing the 5-6 small meals a day because I know I will end up with much larger meals and then I will be eating all day.

I ate well this weekend and though I did not get to do my normal exercise routine I still feel that I got a workout. Saturday my family and I had a garage sale and it was pretty successful but boy it was some work. We live in Texas so by the time we set up everything I was already a pool of sweat. It made for a very long day and by the end of it I was ready to get some rest. Sunday, is my day off from exercising so I didn’t really do much, just some house cleaning. This morning I started my day with a jump start, I had a 45 minute workout on my spinning bike and plan on running with my puppies after work.

Today is our Biggest Space Losers Luncheon & Weigh In. This morning I weighed in at 221 lbs. That’s a total loss of 11.4 pounds this month so far, and there is still a week left for the month!!! I am determined to get under 200 lbs.

One other little thing that I wanted to share that I hope some of you get as excited as I was. Yesterday I had went to my Beth Moore bible study and she had broke down the scripture “This is the day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it.” The Hebrew translation of Rejoice means to “spin around”! Man that is so awesome, so everyone please join me and SPIN AROUND on this Monday!!!


  1. You are doing so awesome. 11 pounds in less than a month is such an accomplishment. And it is sustainable because you are losing it at a healthy pace in a sustainable lifestyle. I am so proud of you.

    Let's do this girl. Slow and steady, and we will get there. :)

    Oh, and I've been reading that the 6 small meals a day may not be the greatest thing. I think it is just about making healthy choices and not eating too much. So do what works for you!

  2. Way to go on the weight loss!!

  3. Awesome job!!! That is a great weight loss :)
