Yeah, yeah, I know....

I know I said I was going to post almost daily. And it has been a week since my last post!!! I'm sorry, faithful readers! (HA HA who am I kidding?!)

I did weigh in at JC today, and I am down another 3 pounds!!! I have now lost over 10 pounds since I started the program! WOO HOO!!!!!

Other than that, I have just been insanely busy. As a matter of fact I am at work for OT as I type. This week has been crazy! Nothing fun going on really, just work and stuff like that.

I'll do better guys, I promise! I'll post regularly again!

Our 7th anniversary!

So yesterday was mine and hubby's 7th anniversary. Overall it was a great day! My house is spotless, thanks to MIL/cleaning lady, I got to hang out with all of my best friends last nite, and had tons of fun! I got way too drunk though!

DH had to work so I went to my bestie's and helped her hubby pass out candy to the trick or treaters while she took the kids out trick or treating. We started drinking then! LOL! I left there and went to Towne Pub for 2 beers and then met Josh at the house to go out to C.B.R.'s with our other couple friends. It's kinda our Halloween tradition. C and I tend to drink WAY too many shots when we're out together so I got wasted. DH was good enough to be my driver though and took me to TeeJays (barf). (Waffle House was too busy.) (And yes I was cheating on my diet!)

I fell asleep (passed out) at the table at TeeJay's and we cancelled our order! Thank god. I am already miserable today, I can't imagine how I'd feel if I would have eaten all that food.

Then when we got home we were letting the dogs out and DH came out with me while I was smoking. MIL/cleaning lady had apparently put the stick in the door frame when she was cleaning because when we shut the door behind us, it fell, and LOCKED US OUT. It was so stupid. We were outside panicking because we thought we were going to have to break a window to get in! I finally managed to pop the stick out of the door though and we got in.

While we were outside panicking DH called his bro that used to live with us because he has a key. Well DH didn't call to tell him we got in. So we were laying in bed and heard voices downstairs. He picked up another brother, came over, let themselves in, and were standing downstairs arguing about who was going to come upstairs to see if we were in bed!!! Thanks, attack dogs of mine! You are so protective! NOT. They didn't even move, not to mention bark or anything! Worthless spoiled brats!!!

Then I completely overslept and barely made it to work in time. I am exhausted today and want a nap. Poor DH is working OT tonight and he is as tired as me today! Being locked out of your house at 4am is very tiring!

Making fun

I think I caught someone making fun of me today. It doesn't hurt my feelings, it was just funny to think about. It is someone I don't even really know. I used to be a real bitch in high school, and I can't help but think sometimes karma has to catch up with you.

Do you ever look at yourself and wonder when you'll grow up? I mean, when do you stop wearing t-shirts with your fave bands or the craziest shoes you can find and start wearing "grown up" clothes? When do you stop spending your money on makeup and concerts and start buying minivans? How does it happen?

If anyone has the answer, I'd be happy to listen!

Good news!

I got my anniversary present early.... it is not a gun! Instead it's a slick new 8 gig iPod Nano. I am so excited! AND DH will not be getting shot in the foot. I am sure he's excited, too. Now I have been going through my iTunes and downloading album artwork that I don't have on my 80 gig iPod Classic and it is a JOB. Very frustrating. But I am already to J..... I made a lot of headway!

The pumpkins turned out too cute. Then I forgot to take pics! LOL I am going over to my bestie's for trick or treat Friday and will take pics then. They will still be cute. The same night we painted punkins we won $57 on scratch off lottery tickets AND $400 in game play at Dave & Buster's!! WOO HOO!!! That is amazing.

Nothing else really exciting going on, I have been sort of in a funk the past few days and can't shake it. I think it's the tail end of this virus I have been getting over. Take my advice, do not work 12 hour days for 30 days straight if you want to stay healthy.

OH, And now that the recipient has received the gift, I am proud to say that I am one of the people that contributed to the Bare Escentuals Free Spirit eyeshadow that sold for over $250. I think that is a world record and we should call the Guinness Book.

Well, off to bed now, see y'all tomorrow!

Pumpkin Spice Cake. It's good.

So remember yesterday when I let you all know that my husband is a jackass? Well, we were up fighting at 3:15 this morning. Not a bad fight, just a lame fight. Because he's a jackass. He doesn't know how to stop running his mouth, and he doesn't know when to stop pushing the line with me.

Why do men insist on being stubborn and hard headed? Even when he knows he's wrong, he will try to pick around the subject and insist that he's right. And that makes me even madder than before. I just wish he would admit defeat when defeat had been served. I get so tired of talking about the same stupid shit over and over. Just GROW UP!!! Sheesh.

I had JC pumpkin spice cake for dessert today though, and it was DELISH. I am going to go buy 10 of them. So I don't run out. I don't think I can live without it. LOL. If I could send one to everyone I know I would.

I have some really cute pics I am going to try to add here. They are DH and I at Fado on a beautiful fall night, drinking Strongbow and smoking honey dipped cigars. It was a good night.

Tomorrow I am going to paint pumpkins with DH and my bestie and her hubby and kids. They have 4 puny little punkins and we have 2 pumpkins so big that they are weighing down the back of DH's SUV. They are freakin huge. I can't wait to take them over to their house and embarrass their wimpy little pumpkin-ettes.

Also, my and hubby's 7 year anniversary is Friday. YAY! Yes, we got married on Halloween. He dressed as a Marine and I dressed as a virgin bride. Guess who had to buy the new attire? ;)

Happy Fall!

My husband can be a real jackass.

I just wanted to let you all know. The end.

So tired.

I just can not get to feeling awake today. It's 4:30 (even though the time zone setting on this thing will most likely say something different) and I could lay my head down and take a nap.

The dogs woke me up barking this morning. DH ran downstairs in a pair of shorts because someone was knocking VERY LOUDLY on the door. WTF? Saturday Morning? All my peeps know better. So DH opens the door and some lady and a 9 year old kid were like, "We understand this is a Spanish speaking residence?" DH just pointed his thumb next door (because that is where the Spanish speakers live) and said, "Don't ever beat on this door until my dogs bark again. They live next door. Learn numbers." And shut the door.

(ETA: Why did they ask if we are Spanish speaking in English?!?)

Now generally speaking, that is pretty rude. However, DH worked until 3 am this morning, and this was like 9:45. He was PISSED. I can't blame him.

And now I'm exhausted feeling. I hate waking up like that, getting jolted out of sleep, sitting straight up and practically having a panic attack because everyone knows, do not come to our door before 11 if it is not an emergency. Even 11 is a stretch on our days off. I bet Josh feels 10 times worse than me though! He is working a lot of OT and has been so sleepy all week as it is!!!

Oh and don't let me forget to add this. Yesterday DH said he was going to go pick up my anniversary present but there is a 7 day waiting period for it. OK so it is a gun. (BOOORRRRING) I told him not to get things for himself and give them to someone else and call it a gift. So next Friday we shall see. I just might get a gun for my anniversary gift. And that means DH might get shot in the foot.

Why does this thing still have my time zone wrong?!


For the first time in months...

My ankles weren't swollen when I woke up today. Could be the massage I had Tuesday (Thanks honey!) but it could be the eating healthy. I probably decreased my sodium by like 75% yesterday! Seriously! Not to mention I have peed about 150 times already today. I feel like a pregnant old lady.

Anyway, I want to spend $50 on and I can't decide what to get. I don't know why I act like Sephora is going out of business tomorrow and I have to order RIGHTNOW but that's what I'm feeling like. I am 98.72% sure my huge paycheck is burning a hole in my pocket. And I'm not kidding, it is a biggun! My last pay of 12 hr x 7 day weeks! I will have a partial week of that on my next pay.

My housekeeper/mother in law starts cleaning tomorrow, so I feel like I have to get the house clean tonight. Isn't that stupid? I am going to give her $100 bucks cash tomorrow to clean, and I am going to clean before she gets there. Ah well.... so is life...

I didn't want to forget, so...

Here's my before pics. Again, sorry they are so blurry. I am really going to try to get someone to take better ones! They were taken at the JC center. Be sure to notice the linebacker pose I have going on. I swear to god, I don't try to stand like that! It just happens!!!

Here it is folks, the best blog on the internets!

So here I am, starting yet another blog. Another blog about my fat ass and making it smaller. I think this is the third time now I have done this in the past year. One on MySpace, one on, and now this one. NIIIICE. I obviously have given up on the other two.

But I am committed to this blog. I have to be. See, I'm afraid I'll die young. I'm afraid my jeans won't fit tomorrow. I am afraid my stretch marks will pop right open. And I'm afraid my husband will open his eyes one day and realize I am not well proportioned due to my awesome genes and just have big boobs and a round ass because I'm fat. (Although I freaking love it that he is still attracted to me.)

I'm tired, I'm lazy, I'm out of shape, and I'm MISERABLE. So I have committed to change.

I decided to go a different route this time. I decided to go to Jenny Craig. I called, I made the appointment, and I dusted off the ol' platinum MasterCard because Jesus H, Jenny is an expensive date. This will be my second go-round with her. She won the first battle, but I am determined to win the war. That means no (well, much less) beer this time and I can not reward myself with fast food from 3 different places on the way home from my weigh ins. Yes. I seriously used to do that.

I weighed in at Jenny Craig yesterday at 278.



278 point something, and it is a number I have NEVER seen on the scale before. It scares the shit out of me. I literally kissed it goodbye (then wished I had at least sanitized the display screen first) and started the program today. The food is actually good, filling, and for the most part, satisfying. It is not nearly cheesy enough, and man! Do I want a piece of toast with real butter or what?! I will probably turn into a salad by the end of the month.

I am going to use this space to reflect, probably journal my foods from time to time, post pictures, give weekly weigh in updates, and eventually, when I physically can become more active, keep track of my activity levels.

Wish me luck people, because god knows I need it!

BTW... I have some "Before" pics to post. The lame-o at JC (that is Jenny Craig from this point on now) must have some issues. They are both blurry. Then lame-o me forgot to put them into my Photobucket this morning. I'll be damned if I didn't post a picture of my makeup today, but couldn't remember the important stuff!
