Here I Am Again

Been away from the blog for a while. Life changes ... ya get busy. Life changes again ... focus changes. I turned 40. Eeep!

So right now we are recovering from Snowpacalypse 2011 here in Georgia. Seriously ... LOTS of snow AND ice on the ground for a WEEK! My office building was closed for 4 days. School was closed for 5. Yes, I nearly lost my mind. I love my boys dearly but seriously? FIVE days in the house? We couldn't go anywhere and even if we wanted to nothing was open. Scott was home Monday and Tuesday so on Tuesday we ventured out to the grocery store. I was glad he drove. The store was very crowded. 2 carts left. BUT - they DID have bread! Have you ever heard of "Bimbo Bread"? It exists... I saw it with my own two eyes. 2 varieties; white and wheat. Hmmm. I passed on it.

I wanted veggies and fruit. I'm on a doctor supervised diet. I've lost over 6 lbs. in one week. Yes. 6 lbs... one week. And I've lost INCHES! It's AMAZING! I feel really good and don't miss my old habits too much. I'd love a glass or two of wine I'm sure. But I love seeing the numbers go down on the scale even more. I "shopped" in my closet today! Got some "new" stuff. And did the happy dance all around the bedroom. Granted these are not "small" clothes but who cares? They are clothes I haven't been able to squeeze my fat ass into for at least 2-3 years. It's a size smaller than what I was in ONE WEEK AGO! Waaahoooo!!! I'll share my diet secret soon ... once I've gone through all the different phases and can honestly say it works. It is NOT easy but seeing results so quickly makes it to where it's not that hard either. I FEEL good. And that's huge!

Oh - also today (it's a SUNDAY) my mailman brought me a package! We haven't had mail delivered all week so I thought it extra sweet he did that! It's my military style had with a HUGE blinged out cross on the top/side of it. I got it from Mom's Bling Company on Facebook. Susan Johnson is the owner and she is a dear friend of MY dear friend B Lavender. I love my new hat and can't wait to rock it atop a MUCH slimmer me soon!

Here's the hat I got today:

Isn't it great? It's very "blingy" and I love that about it. The boys think it's cool too (bonus). I'm excited to wear it!

I also want a "Faith" T-shirt she has for sale. I think I'd prefer long sleeves but we'll see.

As for the boys ... basketball these days. Mikey is a little dynamo! Matthew is a force to be reckoned with for sure but Mikey - geez. Fast and aggressive. Just like in Football. I guess that's good stuff! Matthew is playing Travel Baseball. He loves his team. We are pleased with all of it so far. It won't be a "Crazy" travel team like some are. I like to call it Travel Ball Lite! ha!

I'll try to keep up with the blog better than before. Not than anybody reads it ... but it's probably good for me to. I expect a lot of changes this year ...
