It’s awards season around here


Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over a week since I’ve posted late.  I apologize for my lack of my posting and interacting back and forth.  My boyfriends 40th birthday is Wednesday & I’m planning a big party for him on Saturday.  Needless to say, I have been busy, busy, BUSY!! 

I hope that all of you have had a fabulous week!!  The other day when I signed onto Twitter there were about 3 or 4 of you who had just posted some fantastic weigh-in results and it really put such a huge smile on my face.  It’s so great to see so many people doing good things for themselves. 

I have some good news to share myself…

I hit another milestone at my WI on Thursday.  I was down 1.6 lbs pounds which now puts me at 75.8 lbs lost!!!!  That’s right, I hit the 75 mark and it feels GREAT!!

I don’t think I ever thought I would get this far.  It almost didn’t seem real, but then  everyone at my meeting asked me to stand up and all of a sudden I started shaking.  My legs felt like Jell-O and when my leader asked me what were some of the most important things I’ve learned about WW’s & about myself…I froze.  I could not speak, and normally I’m miss chatty.  My leader said that she would give me time to think about it and I can answer when they present me with the washer award you get (they didn't have any that day). 

That question seems to strike right on the head with what I’ve been struggling with lately and that’s the identity of myself and the changes.  I know I touched on this topic a little bit in a previous post and I actually have a blog drafted that’s related to change and how we deal and adapt with it so I wont go into all of that right now.  But I promise I will put up that post soon.

Anywho…I know this post doesn’t have much “meat” to it and I apologize for that.  It’s a gorgeous day out here today and I’m hoping to go out and get a good run in.  I haven’t worked out at all this weekend and I definitely have some beers to burn off.  ;-)  But before I go I would like to share some other exciting news…

I got my first blog award!!   


I received the fabulous OMB Award from the ever so stunning Renee over at Full-Fat to Low-Fat Pie.  You can also follow her on Twitter @lowfatpie.  She is just the sweetest!!

So to full-fill my blog duties I did a little video first thing in morning with no makeup or hair done.  It’s not really a vlog, or whatever you call it, but I think it counts LOL…


Thank you again Renee!!  XOXO

Here were the rules:

1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER! – CHECK!!

2. Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:

(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus.

(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment.

(c) Write a “Soundtrack of your childhood” post.

(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog. Basically, you’re talking to the camera about whatever.

(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, makeup, etc) and post it.

3. Pass this award onto at least 3, but preferably more, awesome bloggers as yourself. Don’t forget to tell them.

So here are the three people I would like to give this award to:

    Thank you for all of your support my friend! :)

  3. You are just as cute as a BUTTON on that vlog! Congrats on all of your well-deserved awards! I don't comment much, but I follow you closely, and you are an inspiration, my dear.

  4. Ah, honey, thank you for the award. My very first too!! Loved your little vlog! You have a nice voice! Let me get busy on my end and see what I can do.

  5. Yay! Congrats on your loss!

  6. You're too cute! Loved this vlog!

  7. Awww...thank you guys so much. It's funny because I dont think I sound much like myself at all LOL. I was so nervous!! It was kind of fun though. I could see myself doing this more in the future maybe. Hmmm....

    TJ- I remember the bed head photo!! I loved it, lol. I thought you deserved to get the award again because you are awesome & always so supportive of me. :)

    AZ- You are very welcome!! You definitely deserve it!!

    Mimi- You said cute as a button, hee hee. You are just too cute. Thank you so much hun!! I'm awful at commenting on peoples blogs. I have a hard enough time keeping up with mine half the time LOL. I stalk people like crazy online (crazy no??) and you are one of them too. :)

  8. Congrats on the weight loss!! And I totally understand trying to figure out your skinnier self....It's hard. You'd think that losing weight magically makes everything easier and make sense but it doesn't. But keep up the good work!
