Good Weekend Ahead

I weighed in this morning at 235.0.  I'm up 3 lbs from last week, but this doesn't shock me or upset me at all.  I'm finally figuring out and accepting that a couple of weeks out of my month are always going to be harder with my cycle lasting nearly 2 weeks every month....this week and next.  I'm not going to get upset about bloating that I can't do anything about, or not being able to workout as hard at the gym due to the PCOS cramps.  So I'm all good this morning!! 

Dwayne called me yesterday and said he found a dog festival in Villa Ricca so we're going to take Scarlette there tomorrow morning to "shop" and play with other puppies, lol.  I can't wait!!  I also have a baby shower to attend on Sunday afternoon and those are always fun.  I'm headed out shortly to do my grocery shopping.  I'll try to take more food pics this week.  The pics have been lacking lately because I end up eating a lot of the same things, lol.

Well I'm off to get my day started.  Have a super duper weekend friends!!  :)
Editor's Note:

After I finished writing this post this morning (just a few mins ago), I went to catch up on Chris' last couple of posts at A Deliberate Life (listed on my blogroll).  She wrote one on Wednesday entitled "The Best Year of my Life".  If you haven't read this you MUST.

I've seen Chris around Blogland for many months, but it's just been in the last several weeks that I started reading her regulary.  She has such an excellent writing style.  She's so real, so blunt, so raw.  She has a unique talent for either making me laugh my a$$ off, or making me feel like I've been slapped right between the eyes with a 2x4.  Today was the latter.  She talks about the day she decided to change her life.  And how that day has now turned into a year.  I'm so glad I found her, and if she's not someone you regularly read, you are really missing out.  She's a gem.  Go check out this post.  :)

  1. That dog fair sounds like so much fun! My lab would love it, which my cocker would...he spazes when another dog looks at him, something we are trying to overcome at dog agility.
    You have a good head on your shoulders and an attitude tht tells me you are going to get through all of this and be the fit person you want to be!! Keep moving forward! Don't look back and just concentrate on today :)
    I'm off to check out that blog you mentioned, sounds like a good one.
    Have a great weekend!!

  2. Great suggestion. Chris is amazing! I love your attitude my friend!
    I eat a lot of the same foods too. If you come to my house, you're going to surely see steel cut oats, mozzarella, tomato sauce---and some kind of pita or flat bread for low cal pizzas...and eggs. Staples I tell ya! Oh, and mushrooms...my how could I forget?? Mushrooms are always plentiful around the Sean pad.
    Don't feel bad about the same kind of pics...I love to see 'em anyway. How many times have I posted a pita pizza picture?? Lots. It's all good my friend.

    Have a great workout!!! Your dog is so lucky to have a loving parent like you!!! Have fun my friend.

    and thank you for the congrats text last night about the tat. I LOVE IT! But I'm not getting anymore. at least not right now. it's starting huh?

    My best always

  3. Ohmigod! I haven't thought about Villa Rica in decades! Been there at some point and love the name.

    I love Chris' blog too. She has the fire in the belly, and has helped me a lot over the months.

    There's an award for you on my blog today - check it out. It doesn't involve any lying or deep thinking. WOOT!

  4. Got lots of respect for ya - weight loss is hard enough without the cycle. You have a great attitude and that will get you out of the 230s soon enough,

  5. Have a great weekend! The dog festival sounds like so much fun!
