Only two more hours...

...until my three-day weekend begins! Wahoo! It is a glorious, sunny day outside and I'm in a great mood. I wore a bright colored shirt today, and my hair down, and am loving the fact that my size 24 jeans are super-loose! I have been eating well today - heck, all week has been good! Even with the minor candy slip-ups, my food intake has improved 100% over what it has been. I have been eating tons of fruits and veggies, along with lean meat and whole grains. This clean eating is great, as is the 3-hour eating. My body is thanking me big time. TOM has been this week, and I haven't felt bloated, irritable, or crampy not ONE time! That is amazing in itself.

I have a lot planned this evening. A small grocery trip after school (we are out of everything), then soccer practice, and then to a friend's basketball game. We then plan on hanging out with Jess and her kids and spend the night with them at their new apartment. We are thinking about getting a babysitter and going out, but who knows. We are kinda tired of going out after our Spring break escapades!

Hopefully the weather will stay warm and dry so I can get out and walk tomorrow. I might even take my field trip to Nashville for the grocery expedition I mentioned earlier this week. I'm excited about that. Thanks to those of you who gave me suggestions for my grocery list. I have decided that we will not have an Easter egg hunt this year at my house. I don't want to be around that much candy. I know that two of my kids are having Easter parties at school today, and my oldest will get over it. Besides, I totally forgot that Saturday is my class reunion. That morning from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. they are having a picnic/Easter egg hunt at a park in Nashville for families. That should be enough Easter festivities for the kiddos.

Saturday night is the adult portion of the reunion at some chic restaurant in Nashville. I dread it. I hate going back fatter this year than I was 5 years ago (when I was size 18). I might not even go, but everyone says I should. I guess it depends on how the picnic goes. I am also thinking about going to church on Easter. I still have to think about that, too.


  1. You should go to the reunion because that way, when you come back the next time lookin' like one HOT CHIC, everyone will totally be jealous at what you've accomplished. already are losing weight so be proud of what you are doing :)

  2. HAPPY 3 day!!
    (yes, Im jealous)
    and I say dont dread. Throw those shoulder back and enjoy.
    I think you'd be shocked at the fact that everyone else is so obsessed with picking themselves apart that they dont even notice us aesthetically!

    not necessarily a good thing but...

    go have fun and then tell us all about it next week :)


  3. I agree that you should go to the reunion and enjoy yourself. I'm sure everyone will love seeing you. Hope you have a great 3 days off. Way to go on the loose 24's too, that's always a mood booster.

  4. Hope you have a great day and A very happy easter!
