Ok so here is a chart of my weight changes that I have been tracking into an excel sheet like a huge dork. I just think it is interesting to examine visually. I think that last spike up is hilarious- right after 3/3/2011. Gee what could cause this? LOL. I would say my steady go-to weight is right around 128. That is the hardest to drop and stay below. I recognize I am working more to just tone up the bum now versus lose weight, but I still like to track it anyway. Motivating: Seeing short curvy celebrities/models with lean healthy figures. Discouraging: Knowing they are the same height as you but still weigh 20lbs less. Ick.

Speaking of motivation, we just confirmed our summer vacation to Key West! I am so excited to go! We were originally planning for June, but we decided to bump it up to the first week of May so that we can go with his parents. We need the help navigating to the island (and to the house), figuring out how to set up their house/pool/scooters, and overall they aren't bad company anyway :) All I know is that their house is on Big Pine Key! Other than that, I will just be along for the ride and I am sure I will enjoy every moment of it!

Birthday Update!

Howdy ya'll! I should be dead tired from a lack of sleep last night (just couldn't get tired on a Sunday night so I didn't end up laying down until around midnight, then David woke me up at least twice in the middle of the night since he stayed up even later than me, then the cat woke me up an hour before my alarm, then my alarm went off at 5:30am, which would really be 4:30am if clocks didn't spring forward) but actually I feel pretty good today!

Haven't jumped on here to blog because I haven't really been taking any pictures, although I mean to. What I do have are some pictures to recap from my birthday two weeks ago, and later some updates for vacation, weddings, and other fun things!

26 Years

No birthday is complete on my work team without getting your cube decorated. Mine was done in a candy-land theme. My whole desk was covered in red table cloth with the whole candyland game board recreated across the desk. Candy, candy, and more candy was spread all around, following true to the gameboard with "Lollipop Woods," "Chocolate Swamp," "Licorice Lane," etc.

This was the view from where I sat all day. I believe a total of 2 donuts made their way to this exact position, as well as a peice of ice cream cake later in the day! No birthday of mine is complete without that too!

Once I got home, I found two boxes waiting by the door for me! Excitedly getting them in the door and opening them, I found an awesome fruit edible arrangement from my Mom and Dad and the cutest arrangement of purple flowers from my best group of friends in the world, Tara, Scott, Ashley, Hugo, Christina, and Caroline!

Why is it that the center of my birthday excitement centered around food? Wasn't complaining at the time but I am complaining now because of the fact that it has totally derailed my eating since then. I also got pampered with a dinner out and trollbeads from David's parents, and an amazing and expensive half-squishy & half-firm pillow from David! Oh, and a birthday card about farting from David. He knows how to make me feel special :)
