BYOC and Stuff

Sooooo...let's start with BYOC, courtesy of Draz.  I've added her button to the right...and I think I did it correctly.  Moving on..

1.  If you believe in a God - who or what form does it take?  Person or thing?  He or she?  None of the above?
Yes and No.  There are times I don't understand how a God could exist and still let the evils of the world continue.  Other times, I look at my girls or a beautiful sunset and can totally buy into it.  I was raised catholic and haven't really moved on from that so I guess I still picture God as a man.  Only a man would make women get a "time of the month," have to endure childbirth and invent Spanx.  Just sayin'.

2.  If it were considered socially acceptable - would you stop shaving or waxing?
It would have to be beyond socially acceptable as in it would have to be the norm.  I'd LOVE to stop shaving altogether as I hate it and the maintenance of it all is blech.  But it would have to be everyone in the world just stopping shaving all at once.  I'm a follower, not a trend setter.

3.  How often do you weigh yourself?  Why?
I used to weigh every Monday morning, in my jammies after the loo.  Now I've gone to about once a month and have decided that I will weigh on paydays (easy to remember).  So now the 15th and 30th.  I was getting too frustrated at not seeing movement so now I'll only be frustrated twice a month.

4.  When was the last time you admitted you were wrong? (Thank you to Joey for this question)
Does not apply to me - I'm never wrong.

5.  Repeat question.  How was your week?
Eh.  This week was OK.  I'm exhausted and I don't know why.  Overall I feel really good about my eating which I'll expound upon in excruciating detail below.  Blogland is awesome as I've read some great blogs and have seen some great progress.  JRD lost almost 5 lbs this week!  Holly has written some incredibly inspirational, tear jerking posts.  Ms. M did her big climb!  Leslie posted pics of the absolutely adorable Baby Violet.

So a quick week in review.  I stuck to plan MOST of the week.  I had Starbucks on Tuesday and ice cream last night.  Those were the only 2 things outside of my plan and it's still LOADS better than the week before.  I've gotten all my water in but haven't exercised at all.  I have a deal with Ronnie to get in 30 minutes this weekend.  Next week, being the first week of April and all, seems ideal for really getting my exercising butt in gear.  I'm also thinking of doing this at the end of April (Why is EVERYTHING on the same day as the Glow Run?).  I think it would be good practice for the Warrior Dash but I need a costume.  Any ideas?

So this is where my head's at.  I've been blogging just about every day.  I think just to keep track of how I'm doing so now that I'm getting remotivated and feeling pretty gung-ho about things.  Hope you all have a great weekend!  And in honor of April Fool's Day on Sunday...a Friday Funny:

Hey there! Loved all the answers. I am psyched about your warrior dash. I hope you wear a costume that is perhaps She-Ra or something else that kicks butt b/c you are definitely doing awesome!!!!!

Aw, MP, I love you!!! I'm so glad you had a good week - and I'm sure the exhaustion is just residual from all the stress of your grandmother's passing and all the travel and such...Hope you do something fun with the girls for those 30 mins of exercise this weekend!! xo

Are you kidding me that I haven't been following you before now?? Anyway, I guess somewhere along the line I missed following you and assumed I was.
