As of 10/25 I have lost a total of 8.2 pounds. To put that into a completely odd and unnecessary comparison that is 32 sticks of butter. Practically 33 sticks! Everyone can think of me and the 32 sticks less of butter I am carrying around when they start their holiday baking.

My birthday sucked. But as this is a super normal thing for me, I wallowed for like 14 hrs and then moved on. The Friday after my birthday was much improved. Thanks so much friends/wine. Also for all the Birthday wishes from so many of you! I really did love them!

Total weight loss as of 10/18= 5.8 pounds! The two other people and I at work are up to a total of 18 during the last three weeks.

I still hate my headphones while working out. But I am being cheap and lazy. If anyone wants to give me a delayed birthday or early birthday present I wouldn't turn away headphones.

But the plus side is I am working out. I try to go most nights after work and commit about an hour to the gym. Today I learned that I absolutely need to stay away from the TV showing Hoarders. Because man that is usually some truly gross stuff they remove peoples homes.

My lovely and loving sister allowed me to do 5 loads of laundry at her house, and she feed me! All I had to do was watch her three adorable children for like an hour and a half. We completed a puzzle- even Noelle managed to help without being destructive. Kind of magical.

I leave for CA so, so, so soon! Can't wait to see Cheryl and Jim. They have some amazing things planned for me already.

too cute!

Dallas wouldn't get out of the picture, but also wouldn't pose. Classic little boy.

Goals and Going for it

The last week of September I joined weight watchers. I had considered it a couple of time before but had never taken the plunge. This time a couple of women I work with wanted to join as well. One of the perks of my new job is being back at the Jordan Creek campus and having the chance to go to weight watchers at work meetings. Now I have a picture of Jennifer Hudson hanging up in my office and two other people to talk about challenges and food plans with. This is just my second week, but last week I lost 3.2 pounds! I have done a good job of getting rid of the not great for me food in my apartment and replacing it with fruits and veggies. Now when I want to snack I am grabbing something healthy. I also plan to eliminate fast food, I did this for lent this year, so I know I can do it. I am hoping for the bonus of also saving some money. My biggest challenge so far has been planning meal for the week prior to shopping on Sundays. I am still looking for easy to do, low point recipes so I don't end up eating salad every day of the week.

TV take two

After a week of new shows I have some updates of my early predictions.
The Mob doctor is losing me fast, I still just recording week to week. Zach Gilford's role isn't nearly big enough to overcome the rest of the show.

Revolution just tonight won a season pass spot on my DVR. The majority of what I've seen wasn't what did it, but the last scene in last week's episode has me hooked for a couple more episodes. Plus I have been listening to the podcast and that keeps me more involved than with other shows.

Ben and Kate- was fantastic. I laughed out loud so many, many times. Season pass, no regrets.

The Mindy Project- it was going to get a season pass no matter what, but I still liked it.

Revenge isn't new this year, however I managed to catch up with season one on netflix in a mere night. Season pass- at least until other DVR conflicts on Thursday push it to Hulu viewing.

We have already had our first showdown on the DVR. Thursday have traditionally been a horrible night for my TV, I pretty much DVR all of NBC's comedy block, I can't miss Vampire Diaries on CW, Glee just got moved to Thursday's this year, and Grey's Anatomy is something I want to record but am never able to. I also usually try to get It's always Sunny, and Archer on FX.

For the record even though all those shows aren't airing new episode yet, I had to let Grey's go, because Parks and Rec and The Office are too important to me.

So that is what I watched last week- along with Modern Family, the Middle, Fringe, Once upon a time, and Revenge. What have you been watching?
