Finally Caught Up
So I've been trying to catch up since I got back from vacation a couple weeks ago and it's just been nearly impossible. Finally, today...I am completely caught up on the blogs I follow. I'm sorry I was a bad blogger buddy...no more of that.
I am officially old. I found my first gray hair! GASP! It's right up front...in my bangs. Oh...I suppose it's possible there's a gray hair mixed in with the rest of it towards the back but I did a thorough search this weekend and only came up with the one. I haven't plucked it. I fear the old wives' tale is true and if I pull it, ten more will grow in its place. I didn't run out and dye it either. I always had a theory that if I dyed my hair often enough, I would never know when I turned gray. Alas, that plan has failed. So I'm still debating what I'm going to do with it. But it's official. I turned 31 and I turned old. *SIGH*
Special shout out to Ronnie! Not only did she get a job this weekend (Congratulations sweetie) but she texted me twice since Friday to help me stay on track. You're the best!
Weekend was good, albeit we did virtually NOTHING. But after the first week of school and it being hot as balls around here, we didn't WANT to do much of anything. Seriously...school starting should indicate the return of cooler weather, yet we're breaking heat records around here. WTF???
So what's the plan for this week? Well, it's pretty basic and goes back to how I used to do things when I was much more successful than I am now:
There's my list of No's:
NO carbonation (easy one but I still list it because it will always be a temptation)
NO fast food
NO eating lunch out during the workweek.
The my list of DO's:
DO work out at least 4 times this week.
DO drink at least 64 oz's of water every day
DO go to bed at a decent hour
DO resist urges for sweet treats
I've got 1 lb to lose this week and lose it I will.
My 2 year bandiversary is coming on 8/18 so expect a long winded post about that. :)
It has taken me 3 hours to write this post as work has blown up so I leave you with a DEMotivator to get us started this week.
