Back from v.a.c.a.t.i.o.n.


We take lots of vacation when DH gets home from deployment...this time we headed home to Oregon and spent a week at the beach.

On the weight loss side I am pleased that initial scale check shows a loss!  But more on that on the next Fat Tuesday.

On the fun side of things...I had SO MUCH FUN.

Just a few photos...

My kids playing on the beach.  I ran like a crazy lady with that kite.  We never did get it to work well that day, but I got my exercise in trying!

Love him.  <3

Windy day..hangin' out with Grandpa and his dog...jumpin waves....the usual.  ;)

Cold today...but sunny.  Fun to just go for a long walk.

Bonfires on the beach....

Just happy.

Like I said too much fun.

Fat Tuesday!

My last Fat Tuesday was quite awhile ago...and how appropriate to come back on the REAL Fat Tuesday.  I hope New Orleans is having an awesome party tonight.

I used my onederland weigh in as the last weigh

April 24, 2013 - Start 264.4
Last weigh-in: 199.0
This week 197.2

The good news is that after maintaining for a few weeks in anticipation and the the reality of having my soldier come home I have broken maintenance and the scale is moving down.


Next goal is 185 by my April 24th 1-year anniversary of being banded.  Just putting that out there for accountability.

Monday 5

Mondays are stinky. 


Its just hard for me to be enthusiastic and so today I need to do a top 5 fun things.  It will improve my mood and make today bearable...

1.  Club XYZ - a small gay bar/dance club in Knoxville that I spent an evening in this weekend.  Not only did I get to watch a fabulous drag show, but I boogied until the wee hours of the morning and remembered how much I love to dance.

2.  This coffee cup that I must have for mother's day.  I laughed and laughed.  It so fits how I feel about motherhood.

3.  Kind hearts.  I had a math teacher in highschool that I found dry and boring.  I'll bet he had an awesome secret life...It would be cool to go back and meet those dry boring teachers as an adult some day to find out who they really are...

Click here to read about this guy's big heart.  And yes...this totally made me cry.

4.  The book I'm reading.  The Quest by Nelson DeMille.  I love almost all his stuff and this one is no exception.  Its a good read.  I want to spend the rest of my day in my bed and finish it. 

5.  This photographer who makes lemonade out of lemons with potholes.  Interesting, unique...I love the Alice in Wonderland take.

Ok...feeling I guess I better work...
