The BLOGS are talkin' to me... a GREAT way. Please check out my updated blogroll. I have been so INSPIRED and MOTIVATED by bloggers over the past several days. I had a list that I wanted to post on here, but it has got a little out of control - so I thought it would just be easier to direct ya'll to the blog roll. I want to thank the blog world right now!

I feel GREAT today. My weekend plans have all been thrown out the window, but I have had so much fun! I planned on cleaning and doing household chores this weekend, but that has NOT happened!

I spent the night with my bestie, Brooke on Friday night and we went out. First time I've been out in a while, and it felt good to get all dressed up and hang out with friends. I had a couple of 'ritas and felt no guilt about it at all!

Saturday = Soccerday. I was on the soccer field with my three kids from 10 a.m. - almost 3 p.m. But it was fun and I am now about 3 shades DARKER, lol. I tan so easily, even with sunscreen. When I got home, I had planned a trip to Trader Joe's, but I was SO exhausted I took a nap instead! When Brooke called and asked if I wanted to come and spend the night AGAIN, only this time at her mom's house (she is house-sitting), I was all for it! Brooke's mom's house is totally cool, and we love to house-sit! It's almost like going on vacations!

So that's where I'm at now. Brooke and I and the kiddos are going to play outside in a bit. I went on a great walk in the sunshine this morning for about 40 minutes. I am still going to go by Trader Joe's before I go back home this evening... I still plan on transforming my cabinets so I have healthy, clean food for next week!

I have been slowly letting go of my guilt for being a diet failure, and am ready to embrace a healthy lifestyle for me and mine. My choices have already been better... but more on that tomorrow!


  1. Thanks for putting me on your blog roll! I really enjoy reading your blog, and I've been following you for 3 months now. I appreciate your honesty as we both go through this journey.

  2. Being a "diet failure" is not such a bad thing. Focusing on healthy living is something that will serve us for the rest of our lives. I think we all get VERY impatient with the scale and the process, but eventually through trial and error we learn just what works best for our bodies, how to fit it in with the rest of our life, and then we fly. It's a process. Hang in there- I think you are clearing out what does not work to uncover just what will work perfectly for you.

  3. I have to admit i get a lot of inspiration from my fellow bloggers!! Including you of course :)Have fun with the little ones and i can't wait to hear your healthy plan next week!

  4. Glad you're smiling! Sounds like you had fun and you were activity thats a plus.

    Its all part of the journey as we carve out our healthy living path.



  6. I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your blog! I have just started my own weightloss journey (and blog) and I know exactly what you are going through.
