I'm back!

How have y'all been?! Been a crappy week here....It rained all week up until yesterday afternoon so I haven't been out walking as much as I'd like and my scale is a liar...I'm actually up 2 pounds. Not much more to say on the subject.

Bloggest Loser part 4

So this week has not been the greatest of weeks for me. I haven't been Wii Fitting like I would like but I have been getting out walking the girls more....Our Cocker is getting a little bit on the "round" side so we're (the three of us) are in the process of loseing some weight. I've basically taken some time off from good behavior and in the process still managed to lose 1 1/2 pounds. Don't know how I managed that one but I'll take it.

So I am without a computer the rest of this week. I just wanted to let you all know. I'll be a week behind on my blogging but I will be back around to visit.

Oh, if you'd like to learn more about the book just click on the image or if your looking for something to read hop on over to my new book blog (sorry about the shameless plug) Confessions of a Book Junkie.

Bloggest Loser part 3

So this week on Bloggest Loser......

I cracked and had my first soda in almost 2 weeks....The upside is that it didn't taste "right" so I didn't even finish it. My back hasn't been bothering me near as bad as was last week so I was able to get in more workouts this week than I did last week. I've been kind of slacking on the getting out and walking with the girls...It's been cold and dreary here in WI. According to the powers that be I'm supposed to be closer to 132 pounds...which is fine but I'll be even happier to be somewhere between 140 and 132.

According to my Wii Fit I'm down 5.25 pounds! My scale is waging war on I think I'll just stick with having myself weighed on my Wii Fit.

Over the past couple of days I've received a couple of awards, plus the one from last week also. So without further ado my awards:

This one is from Angela at Angela's Soliloquy

And this one is from Heather over at Red Apron

Now each of these awards comes with it's own set of rules...I am bad with rules so I've decided that I am going to give these awards to EVERYONE. Enjoy!

According to the powers that be....

Instead of being around 140 pounds according to the powers that be I should be at or close to 132 pounds. Still a very acheiveable goal. Just need to get my mind right about the whole process....Apparently, it's not completely ok with my plan. GET RIGHT WITH THE PLAN BRAIN!

Apparently, my scale is also plotting against me. Since I do most of my work outs on my Wii Fit now I'll be using the body test function to figure my weight. It seems to be much more accurate than my regular scale....which has been known to give me 3 or 4 completely different weights in the span of maybe 2 minutes (testing it's accuracy.)

Bloggest Loser part 2

So I've put in my first official week on Bloggest Loser....YEAH ME! Seriously....I've usually lost interest about 2 or 3 days in. So let's go over the goals that I set for myself in my last Bloggest Loser post:

1. Do NOT give in to the caffeine headaches that I know I'm due for as a result of giving up soda....NO MORE SODA! I'm 7 days without any caffeine and 6 days without any soda at all. Wednesday my mom sent me out after soda for her and I was soooo tempted but I did not give in!

2. Get in 3-4 good work outs. I only got in 1 really good work out this week. My back has been bothering me and I don't want to aggervate it anymore than it already is.

3. Take the Girls for at least 1 walk a day (more if possible on my days off.) Since last Sunday we've been on 9 walks!

4. Try to find as many "Healthy" recipes as possible (if you know of any blogs, webpages, etc let me know please). I've found a few sites to check out.

5. Try to lose 1-2 pounds. I am down (and holding) 3.5 pounds!

Quite Frankly My Dear.....part 2

So as I've posted before I have been reading Gone With The Wind for a little bit now. I've even posted part 1 of this multi-part review. I keep learning all sorts of things about the characters in this book. In the last review I left off with Rhett almost starting a fight at the Wilkes' BBQ and Scarlett being the belle of the ball. Moving on....The war has started and both Melly and Scarlett's husbands (oh yeah I said it) go off to war. Only for Scarlett to become a widow only a couple of months into her marriage. There's more to that part of the story too but I don't want to give away tooooo much.

Scarlett ends up visiting Melly and her Aunt PittyPat (who does have a real name but you'll have to read the book to find out what it is) in Atlanta. The mourning process in that time period was sooo "hardcore" to say the least let's put it that way. Before Scarlett even makes it PittyPat's house she's volunteered to help numerous hospital committee's that are in the community.

Get this Rhett is now called Captain Butler and is a Blockade runner!

Still NOT liking how the slaves dialogue is written!

My bloggy pal Chef Eureka over at Two Peas in a Pie awarded me with this award. I am sooo bad at awards sometimes...I just don't know who to award them to. So I'm going to think on it for a little while and come up with my 6 winners and the answers to all the questions too, there will be a part 2 post later. Thank you for the award!
