Sunshine Day!


So yesterday I spent the entire day in bed…literally, ALL DAY.  That is because I was nursing the worlds worst hangover.  My boyfriends dart banquet was the night before and needless to say, I sometimes forget that being 67 lbs lighter means that I can’t really drink like I could before.  So after a lot of vomiting, I committed myself to bed for the day.  Thank sweet baby Jesus that I took the rest of the week off beforehand!

That brings us to today.  I’m feeling good again.  The sun is shining and it’s supposed to reach 70 here!!  I originally thought that my boyfriend and I were going to get outside and enjoy this nice weather together, but apparently going golfing with his brother was more important.  But that's ok….I am going to get out there and enjoy this beautiful day!!

I haven’t ran since two Sundays ago and that bothers me more than anything.  I think that is also the reason why I have been so off track.  Needless to say, running is top on my list of priorities today.  Maybe I’ll drive out a little bit and find a trail or something. 

Today is also my WW meeting.  I didn't go last week.  And I will confess right here that I have thought about not going today.  I know I am up on the scale and I’m terrified to see how much.  Also, I never work out on the day that I have to get weighed-in so I’m also worried about that.  I think either way though, I will go to my meeting.  Will I have the strength and courage to step on the scale this week????  Who knows.  What I do know though is that I am sick and tired of feeling like this.  It’s getting to the point where when I look in the mirror I get upset.  I can’t let a week and a 1/2 bump get me down this anymore.

So…I *will* get outside today and let the sunshine lift my mood.  I *will* get out there and MOVE.  I *will* be positive with myself.  I *will* remember that we all fall down, more than once, but we can ALWAYS pick ourselves right back up.  So no more tears, no more excuses.


Here’s a picture of me before we went out to the dart banquet….This is also going to be the picture I will submit to WW for my ‘after’ photo:


Have a great day everybody!! 


  1. Hope you get out to enjoy your run! I think getting on the scale tonight will be a good thing. If you keep skipping week after week you are driving blind. Its good to have your eyes open along this journey. Love the pic- you look great!! :) xoxo

  2. Gotta love alcohol!! I haven't had much to drink since a bad open bar experience in 2008. Glad to hear you're feeling better.

  3. TJ- You are right. I know if I dont get on the scale I will feel guilty. I just have to suck it up and face the music! And thank you :-)

    Sarah- Ugh, yeah it was pretty. I knew I would be hungover but I didnt expect to get *that* sick. Live and learn, live and learn LOL. xoxo

  4. Love the pic! You look radiant.

    I've only had 1 'all day in bed' hangover. It wasn't pretty & I don't wish that on my worst enemy. Blech. Glad you're all detoxed! :)

  5. Congrats on surviving the killer hangover. You look great!

  6. Thanks ladies!! :-) Oh,I sure am glad that hangover is finished. Blah!

  7. Awww - look at your tats! I love them...have 5 myself! Hope you feel better!

  8. the stumbles are really difficult to move past. we know they are inevitable & we know it's not a fail as long as we get back up, but i always beat myself up for it just a little. i strayed for a few weeks myself & it's not the end of the world, but it can be so discouraging. way to dust yourself off & keep going!

  9. 67lbs down... that's AWESOME!!
    I hope you got onto the scales. Know where you're at and move on. By the way, you look sensational!!

  10. That is an amazing after pic!! You poor baby...I hate when I drink too much and wake up praying to the porcelain god. Yes, it's true...when you lose weight you can't put as many away as you used to.

    You are looking good...keep up the good work. And you are proof that you can still drink and lose. I love my happy hours, I love hanging with my girls, and I am not giving up the liquor. No way Jose!
