On the Naughty List...

Oh!  I've been soooo bad this past week.  I am totally on the lapband naughty list right now.

First...I want to know who is responsible for bringing so much candy, chocolate, cookies and frosting into my house this past week.  Seriously.  Who did it?!

I LOVE Christmas and in the past thats meant I really get into the spirit of things and Christmas revolves around three or four things depending on who you are or your age...

First....Baby Jesus.  The reason for the season, you know.
Second....Santa...the big fat man bringing presents.
Third...Family....let bygones be and forgive and all that jazz...and
Fourth...FOOD.  Cookies, fudge, chocolate, hot chocolate, candy canes, gingerbread houses....

And I embrace all four and run with them for the entire month....but not literally or maybe I wouldn't be whining so much.  I mean if I literally was running then I wouldn't be so concerned with the incredible amount of sugar that I've eaten over the past 7 days.  What I should have said is that I embrace all four and am waddling my way through the month...

Ha ha ha...

So I DID go to zumba one day this week.  And it being the first class since I came back I totally shook my bootay like a rockstar...

Anywho...I"m working through how to have Christmas without so much sugar.  It may be impossible because I can't seem to find a good solution...

So part two of this remember that "in onderland by New Years" goal I threw out there to the cyberworld?

Back from Paradise!

Ahhhh....Mexico...sweet Mexico...I miss you, your sunny beaches and warm sand already!

I returned yesterday from a 19 day trip to Arizona and Mexico.  The impetus (if you aren't familiar with my Army Wife ramblings) was a 14 day visit with my soldier home from Afghanistan for RnR after being deployed for 9 months.  We also had a large family reunion over Turkey day.  

Short and simple....I had TOO MUCH FUN.

And I exercised exactly twice during those 19 days.  And I ate Frog eyed salad and 5 different types of pie and ice cream with caramel sauce.  I lazed around and pushed away the nagging "how much will I gain" question looming in my head.

The answer....ZERO!

*pause for the happy dance!*

April 24, 2013 - Start 264.4
Last weigh-in: 211.8
This week 208.2

Granted I didn't break any weight loss records over the past 2.5 weeks, but I didn't GAIN!

And so I set a new goal this morning after seeing that scale....
