Vacation Over!

Okay...I'm back to work today - Fall Break is OVER! I'm actually kind of pleased to get back into my routine. Call it being lazy or recharging, but I've been on my BUTT entirely too much! But it's been nice to be able to read and kick back with my kids. I finished the last book in the "Twighlight" series last night, and I must say that it's been a long time since I was sad after finishing a book! I didn't want the story to end! For those who like to read and haven't read them yet, I highly recommend.

Today is my first Weight Watchers meeting since 9/29. I have at-work meetings, so they were put on hold while we were on break. I am pleased that I will be able to report a good loss while we were on break because I stayed on plan. True, I've been lacking in the F/V department, but I've stayed within my points, and only used my WAP's once or twice. I've also journaled EVERY SINGLE DAY for 57 days straight! That's a huge deal for me. Even in the past when I've been successful at WW I didn't journal regularly or stick to my points every single day. I'm actually starting a new notebook today (I use cute/colorful small spiral notebook to journal). It's almost been 8 whole weeks! That just reminded me that it's time to take new progress pics (I will do this every four weeks). I'll do that tonight and post. Although I really don't think there will be a noticeable difference yet...

I want to thank everyone who is following my blog now! I promise that now that I'm in front of a computer all day again I'll get back into the swing of blogging!


  1. Congrads on your nice loss and continuous journaling... journaling was hard for me too... but since I rejoined about 6 weeks ago I've journaled everyday... now I feel like I HAVE too or something is missing through out my day.

  2. Congraulations on your loss and the continued journaling...what a great NSV. Keep up the great work and you will get to goal :)
    BTW...I love your blog!!

  3. Wow! Journaling in itself is a huge NSV, but for 57 days straight! Now that's impressive! Keep up the great job Hollie!

    I thought of you on Sunday night. I had dinner at a friend's house and her sister was talking about how much she loved the Twilight series.

    I'm stuck on author Karen Kingsbury right now. Her books are so uplifting. I absolutely love her work, but I'm always disappointed when I reach the end. I wish they could go on forever!

    There's nothing like a good book!

  4. Yes. Journaling can be a savior. For more journaling inspiration, visit my blog,

    Also, you might want to pick up a copy of my new poetry collection dedicated to a world-renowned journal-keeper. The book is called DEAR ANAIS: MY LIFE IN POEMS FOR YOU.

    Happy writing!
