Good morning lovelies,

Sorry I've been M.I.A again for a few weeks. I haven't been able to find the time to sit down at my computer.

So I have officially become consistant at going to the gym twice a week, eventhough, those two days are Sundays and Mondays. But you have to start somewhere right? I'm back down in the 133s again (steadily) so that's a bit of progress there.

I have decided that for lent I will give up buying food when I'm out. First off, this will save me money and secondly, I wont be consuming extra calories. I am also giving up my lattes as well. I can still buy coffee, water or gum/mints but anything that comes packaged or from a restaurant I will not be touching for 40 days. I think my biggest culprit is when I'm at work and the vending machine stares me down. It's usually only a protein bar, but at $1.50 a bar it adds up, and so do the carbs and the sugars.

The last 2 days have been quite successful. I am only bringing to work a piece of fruit, veggies and I have a small bag of almonds in my purse so I can grab 1 or 2 to put in my stomach if I get quite hungry. My cals at work are never more that 400. I am also only eating a small portion of food when I get home in the evenings and I've had nothing other than water after 8pm.

I've finally booked/planned my alumni event, and I am about to send out the invitations. I'm quite excited for this. I hope something turns up for me by the end of the event. Or at least a very good lead.

I am also in the middle of planning T's engagement party/wedding shower. I'm still waiting for a compatible excel file of the invitation list. I can't send out invites if I can't see the list.

Anyways lovelies, I must be off. I have a lot to do again today before work. I know I'm not so active on here that much anymore but I'm still reading all your posts every day from my phone. I'm getting on D's case to get his laptop fixed so I can get online a little bit more often.


  1. That's pretty much how I started. 2x a week minimum and it became routine. Now, I'll go more if I can or want to and I don't hate it. Sounds like you are on a good plan for work/home. I do about the same. Minimal eats at work and then small portions at dinner.

  2. yay! you're back! so good to hear from you again :) that's a really good start to the gym, keep it up! sounds like you've been busy; I always find that's the best way to lose! keep us posted, <3RaeLynn
