An abundance of accomplishments!

Hello everybody!!  I apologize for taking a break but it was very much needed.  It was nice to “unplug” from here and Twitter for a bit and just enjoy some time outside and with my loved ones. 

I have had a lot of really awesome things happening the past few days though…

First off, I finally hit my 80 lbs lost mark!!  I can’t even begin to describe how amazing this feels.  I can’t believe that I am only 7 lbs away from being at goal weight.  I’m not even 100% sure that it has sunk in yet to be honest with you.  Here’s the evidence:

Then on Friday my mother surprised me with this beautiful beast:

7hcaI have decided to call her ‘Lucy’.  She is a beautiful 26 inch purple cruiser.  I have taken her out every single day since I got her.  :)  It’s a great side workout to running to be quite honest. 

I got her a basket today and what else but to have my first trip be to get me some beer right??

I also received the fabulous Sugar Doll award from my bitch @mesohongry.  Go check out her blog now!!  She is hilarious and is such a strong, amazing woman. 

sugar dollSo in order to fulfill my requirements for this award I have to do the following:

  • Thank the recipient...THANK YOU SO FREAKING MUCH!!
  • Link back to the giver...Done :)
  • Reveal 10 things about me...Well I usually do a “Fun Fact Friday” blog post on here but we’ll see what I got:
  1. The sound of someone whistling annoys the shit out of me. I have tubes in my ears and if its really high pitch it kind of hurts. 
  2. When I was little, maybe 5 or 6, I separated my gums from my teeth by putting on my moms HUGE high heels and dancing back and forth to Jody Watleys “Im looking for a new love” while carrying a hair brush & pretending I was on stage.
  3. My very first word was “Pooh”.  Not like feces, but for Winnie The Pooh.  My moms favorite character ever which was plastered all over my room as a baby.
  4. Today I bought & wore a tank top…I haven't done that since I was maybe 13 or 14.
  5. I love to swim.  We have a pool at our complex but I choose not to swim in it, but if I could live in water I absolutely would!  I wish I could be a mermaid.
  6. I’m the only person in my family to absolutely hate olives.  They are all disgusting!!
  7. I’ve never lived in a house.  I have always, even since I was a baby, lived in an apartment.  I live in a 2 story townhouse right now and this is the first time I have had more than one level and is the closest I have come to a house.
  8. I have horrible credit.  I have big debt from being young and stupid.  My answer to it…get in line people!  I can barely pay my day to day bills so there's no way I can try to make up on that crap.  It sucks a lot, but what can you do. Live and learn I guess.
  9. I’m a makeup-aholic.  I seriously own TONS of makeup.  90% of it I dont even wear.  I get this from my mother.
  10. I’ve always wanted to play music for a living.  I’ve written songs since I was little and I love to sing and have played piano.  It will never happen but in my heart thats my passion.

Now to spread the love to a few whom I believe are some fabulous Sugar Dolls ;)

  1. Gypsie Meanderings
  2. Life Lesson a Day
  3. Lighten Up, Lor!
  4. Operation Size 8

I also want to take a moment to give a very apologetic and extremely late thank you to Sarah of Operation Size 8.  She gave me the wonderful OMB award a little bit back and I never got to thank her on here.  I recently did this award previously here so I’m not sure if I am supposed to do it again or not :/  I still have much to learn about the ‘blog world’ LOL.  If I am, just tell me and I’ll do it!!

 

And last but not least, I am EXTREMELY honored to say that I was featured today on Draft Magazine’s Beer Runner blog.  I was extremely moved that the wonderful Tim, aka @TheBeerRunner on Twitter, asked me to be part of this great blog!!  This may come to a shock to some of you, but I love to drink beer!  And being able to share my love for beer as well as my love to stay fit and healthy was really a wonderful opportunity.  Please go check out my article here!  It was so much fun to do, and it kind of made me feel like a rock star ;).

P.S. That picture of me running with the beer on the site, yeah…I did that at 9:30 AM in front of my complex, while some of my neighbors were outside.  I’m pretty sure someone from AA will be showing up at my door any day now.

 

I hope that everyone has had a safe and wonderful holiday!!  I am NOT looking forward to going back to work tomorrow.  I am really enjoying this time off…probably a little too much ;)

Oh and for those of you wondering about the Crunch Crack / Gun Show challenge, due to the holiday I decided to not post it this week (hey, they pause for local team sports so we can too right??).  I will let you all know though that I did fail miserably at the challenge this week.  I only did my workouts twice and I only hit 100 crunches, not the 125 I was supposed to do.  Well this is a new week right!!  Time to get back on the saddle. But if you kicked ass, please let us know!!

XOXO

  3. Congrats again on your 80 pounds! You look amazing! 7 pounds to goal is so awesome. You are going to make it!! Woohoo! How awesome!!

    OMG! I LOVE YOU! Seriously! I do. You are freaking fantastic. And I noticed you haven't been tweeting lately. But I knew you had gotten your bike and I am so happy you are enjoying her. She is beautiful. Thank you for the award. I am going to go blog right now.

    I never use my bike. I feel bad because she is at my in-laws and I just never use it. There are trails around town and I just don't use them.

    and listen... regarding your fact no. 8 of you list... there's this book "save karyn" who had the same problem and solved it with an idea no one ever had. ok.. you can't really copy this but maybe it inspires you to solve it by doing something you've never done before. you can check out her site as well -> http://www.prettyinthecity.com/save-karyn/ OR http://www.savekaryn-originalsite.com/
    it's really fun and maybe it can help you.
