Remember the diet goals I had? Fail. I didn't watch what I ate at all in Texas, and have basically fallen off the wagon. I'm starting again today. And I need your help to keep me accountable. If I don't update, NAG. Sometimes we all need that.
So I'm going to be really, really honest. And tell you what I weigh. And share with you when I mess up. But shh . . .my weight's a secret. I am a lady.*
I have a bootcamp class at the IU gym tonight, so wish me luck (I have been exercising pretty regularly, so at least that's a plus).
Thanks for your support!

Here's my goal for my month of vacay: I'd like to loose the 10ish pounds that I've gained since the wedding. I'll try to use Mondays as update days, so wish me luck! I have serious envy for women who are runners, who can go and enjoy that every day. I HATE exercise with a passion - it's just never been my thing. I grew up dancing, which kept my weight down' but that's not super practical right now. Maybe I can make myself become a runner? We'll see.
What's your favorite kind of exercise?

As far as tonight goes, I have a pot of green beans on the stove and a beef tenderloin in the oven for dinner. I have some homework to work on, and Mister is playing a video game. I've had a headache on and off all day, so I may just go to bed early.
What are your evening plans?

But what looks good on paper isn't always good in real life. He was stringent in his beliefs - no "passionate" behaviors until marriage, and berated me when I told him about my (sometimes wild) past. He was the most verbally abusive person I have ever encountered, and we went through things that still give me nightmares. I don't think that how God wants us to submit to our husbands. His family hated me, literally. It was a relationship mess. I dumped him early one morning, in an email after about seven months (don't hate. I know its awful). I had to change churches because of the rumor-spreading aftermath.
My advice is this: TRUST YOURSELF when it comes to relationships, because not everyone sees a person at their truest level.

What is your choice for a non-coffee morning drink?

I have to share my ever ebay win! I've bid before, but never won anything, until now. Here she is:
This is 1960s era Lilly, with pink lions and tigers and yellow flowers. It was a steal - only $20.00!
I found super-cute shoes on Etsy from seller pinkpearlstudio. She makes Dr. Scholl's sandles in any size, covered in Vera Bradley or Lilly Pulitzer prints. I'm going to start saving my pocket money for these!http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26034270&ref=sr_gallery_12&&ga_search_query=lilly+pulitzer&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes=tags&includes=title
Also, I have a question for you ladies: if you have customized stationary, where do you get it from?
Have a good day ya'll!
Love you too much,

Also, my Russell's birthday is tomorrow! (Please tell me I'm not the only one who celebrates pet birthday). He'll be 3. This picture is of the day we brought CoCo home, and shows how tiny she was, compared to him.
Have a good day everyone!

Currently, I get up around 4:15, leave for work at 5:15, work at BBCC from 6:00 - 3:00, drive home, change clothes, work at the private school from 4:00 - 6:00, come home, cook, do some reading, try to be in bed by 9:00, wake up with Mister from 12:30 - 2:30, go back to sleep, repeat. How do you women with children do it - I can't even imagine if I had little one to think about during the day!
I have to share an amazing product with you all.
I got this at my local organic grocery, and am in LOVE. I have seriously oily skin, and while I don't get actual acne, I am somewhat blemish prone. This has reduced the oil, and made my skin *glow.* Love it, and it's alcohol free, so it doesn't lead to dry patches.
Sorry that this post has been all over the place - Hope everyone else is having a good week!

The non-fat yogurt has only 110 calories, but tastes like a dessert. I get mine at the local Kroger, so I'm sure other grocery stores have it as well. Enjoy!

I am the third generation of my family to work in this facility. My grandfather did back-breaking, physical labor as a tool setter. My dad started out as a machine operator, and ending up a member of upper-level management. I came in right out of college, and have already worked all over the organziation.
Thanks, Obama. Though I may disagree with your socialistic government running of priavte companies, this was a good move.

**I want to thank my readers for their support Monday. I'll keep you all updated on what I hear "from the inside" if you'd like.

However, I think the exact relationship ending conversation could win an award. Ladies, if you beat this one, you have my upmost condolences.
B: I think we should take an extending break. I don’t want to cheat on you, but I have feelings for someone else.
Me: I figured. Can I ask who?
B: His name is Josh.
Yup. His name. To say it was a shock is an understatement. To say I didn’t cry, eat too much ice cream, and kiss a few too boys to make sure there wasn’t something wrong with me, would be a lie. And there you have it, the story of B.
After all that, we are still pretty good friends, and talk at least a few times a month. He and Josh are very happy.

While I love my job at BBCC, these days the mood is somewhat morbid, waiting for the government to decide what we're going to do, and everyone here is fairly stressed out. For me, going to the school and being with the kids just makes the stress disappear. It has been such a blessing to get to go there the two or three days a week that I've been subbing for the past month, and I can't wait to be there every day.
Have a good day everyone - the 2nd installment of dating history will be up today, too!

However, I have quite a few things planned to share with you all. Inspired by Lisa at Like A Valentine (genuis blog. Love her. Follow now, if you don't already), I'm going to start a review of dating history, from the beginning to Mister. Not only do I think it will be fun, but it will help me to be able to more easily share stories with you all in the future - I had a double-ex run-in on Monday, and knew it would too hard to explain, regardless of the akward hillarity that ensured - so I'll begin later today.
Have a Happy Wednesday!

We'll start with these stunners:
Yes, that is pink sequins. From mr MB, who else?

What new beginning does this symbolize? A commitment to eating better, and hopefully to better health. Not to being skinny . . .but to being better to my body. I have struggled with weight my entire life, and have twice been able to lose a moderate amount off my frame - going as low as a size 8 on a frame that typically hovers around a 14. (There. I said it. Out loud-ish). However, any other endeavors to be "better" to myself involved very unhealthy habits - I won't go into details, but one ended up with me very, very, sick and in the hospital for dehydration-caused kidney problems. This time will be different. Organic food, real meals, and exercise. I plan to start Monday updates for you all, both to motivate me, and to hold me accountable.
Wish me luck!

I know . . . a long time, no post. Life just got too crazy. I have a quick update on things:
- wedding and honeymoon, as well as married are good. Still waiting on the "different feeling" everyone says you have once you're married
- I have my last final tonight, and then I'll have a Master's Degree! I start classes for my PhD on the 11th
- Remember how I was supposed to lose my job April 30th? They fired my boss, and asked me to stay, and still be part time (to go to school). So all that worry . . . was for nothing. Damn corporate america.
How have you all been?

Also, please sign up for the flip-flop swap - I think it'll be great fun!
Sunday, March 22, 2009
- Pick and send one pair of cute, preppy flip-flops, a coordinating shade of nail polish, and a cute, matching hair accessory. Let's try to see how creative we can be on the cheap, and try to keep all three items under $20.
Interested? Comment with your name and email, and I'll set you up with a partner. Then you can swap addresses and shoe sizes.
If you would, link this to your blogs - I'd love to get at many girls as I can involved!
