BYOC 11.4.11

Yep...that's a dumb title.  And this will be a dumb post.  I really don't have anything to report.  I feel I've done better so far this week with my eating but not as good as I'd like.  But any improvement lately should be celebrated.  It's supposed to be in the 60's this weekend so I'm thinking walking around the zoo is in order working with my oldest on the whole big girl bike thing.  Some outdoor activity MUST be in the cards.  So this fill has kicked in a bit but I think I'll need another one before the year is out.  I'm going to give this one a good whirl and see where  I end up.  I'm proud to say I have been soda and french fry free so far this week so that's progress.

What else?  Oh!  Right.  My kids were up at 4:30 this morning.  Seriously?  Now, I have to be up at 4:30 anyway to go to work but usually the rest of the house is still in a peaceful slumber when I leave the house.  Not this morning.  I threw in a DVD, said "Daddy's upstairs sleeping if you need anything" and ran out the door.  We'll see how the rest of the morning went once Hubby checks in.

Thanks to's our BYOC.
Let’s get to what we came here for! BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy. A couple questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy and paste to your own blog if you wish! Enjoy!

Let’s do another themed BYOC…..this one will be called “What’s In/On Your….?”

1. What’s on your desk between your monitor and keyboard? (if it’s a laptop – what’s on your desk in general)

You would never know it by my house but my I am a neat freak at the office.  We have a lot of sensitive data around so we're not allowed to leave papers and stuff out so there is absolutely NOTHING between my monitor and keyboard.  My walls are littered with pictures of my kids and hubby.  I have a couple crafty stuff from my kids and that's about it.
2. What’s on your mind right at this moment?

How I'm going to get everything done that I have to get done today.  I'm training my replacement at work and not only am I sick of hearing myself talk (never thought that could happen) and I'm sure she is too.  
3. What’s in or on your nightstand on your side of the bed?

Alarm clock, eye mask, 2 remote controls, a stack of kids' clothes
4. What’s on YOUR Christmas wish list (let’s assume you’d get what was on it)?

Hmmm...a new alarm clock.  I prefer to wake up to the radio but for some reason, it does the buzzer thing no matter what I have it set to.  Very annoying.  New clothes that fit.  Make up.  
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real life - New commitment to my weight loss efforts...just in time for the holidays.  Who does that?

Blogland - Pretty good.  Still blogging regularly...loving reading up on how everyone else is doing.  Some people are truly struggling through the realities of life and I truly feel for them.  It's so easy to stay myopic about my weight loss when nothing much else is going on but some in Blogland have real life distractions weighing (pun intended) in that would completely derail me.  I salute them for managing through and not eating their pain.

And your Friday Funny:

Yeah, the whole getting fit at the holidays seems strange but I know I'll feel better come January when others are just starting their health resolutions and I'll be two months into it :) Hope you have that great weekend !
