Look who said HI to me!

My Dear Friend Shell is at CHA 2012 in LA and look who she ran into! It's no secret that TIM HOLTZ is one my top two MUST MEET FAMOUS PEOPLE. (Adam Levine of Maroon 5 is the other) Since I know my chances of meeting him are slim to none, my good friend took it upon herself to get this photo for me! SHE ROCKS! HE ROCKS! I ROCK!!! I'm going to sleep well tonight knowing he has heard of me, if nothing else! heehee

Back on WW

I have officially re-started Weight Watchers (online). I have been feeling really "off" lately and I finally figured out what my issue was. I was gaining weight and had no real reason to try to stop. So I know the only way I would re-gain my focus was to start back up. I even walked on the treadmill tonight. I am the type of person who needs a reason, a drive to achieve my goals. So now that I am paying money out, it gives me a reason to commit. Before it was my sisters wedding, then it was a contest with a friend (Shell). Now I want to prove to myself that I can do it again and get even lower. I WILL DO THIS! I will measure, I will count, I will exercise. I will do it!

Stop it

Why do spammers find it necessary to drop their .02 on my page?? Really, you are wasting your time on lil ole me. If this keeps up, I will go to moderation of posts, I guess. Hate to do that but I'm sick of the crap they are dropping off here lately. *reminder, get up on the other side of the bed tomorrow* Sorry, I'm just not happy with having to delete comments.

I'm tired. Like really really tired to my core. I have been running like mad since about August. ( you can pick the year~!) I think I have reached my breaking point? Nothing that used to bring me joy is doing it for me lately. Not scrapbooking, not photography, not cooking, nothing. I feel so drained. I just want to hang out with my family/friends. I dont' want to HAVE to do ANYTHING. I'm tired. I'm sick of feeling like I need to get caught up. I have so much I want to do but I can't seem to do it because I'm always doing something else that I HAVE to do. Is this just part of being an adult or I am taking on too much? Yikes. What's wrong with me? I'm sure you know you are limited on space in the reply section so be nice!

Doing it!

I'm still keeping up with my P365+1 project!! And I'm adding my pictures to my layout each day as I go along! I'm hoping I can keep this up! I feel accomplished! My Football team didn't make it past the first round but it is what it is...bad calls will do that to a team! Got my sister's wedding gift in the mail today! Looks wonderful! Once I give it to her, I will share it.
Tried to go grocery shopping today but just couldn't finish. Not feeling all that great so I thought I better come home and get some rest. I've had some sort of bug for a week. ugh.

It's game day baby!!! First time since 1999 that Lions have been in playoffs! Ahhh....I am wearing my logo wear proudly today. We have stuck with them through it all. Even the 0-16 season. We are die-hard Lions Fans in this house. Heck, we support ANY Local FOOTBALL TEAM! We just plan love that brown pig skin game!

So this is us in our gear that we got Christmas morning! So it's been 12 years since Lions were in the playoffs and it's the year '12! I think we might be on to something??!!

I'm not sure why I'm so excited about it being Friday?! I have so much to do this weekend that it will be Monday before we know it. But today is F R I D A Y ! And it's 50 degrees IN MICHIGAN?! Wow?! I think a picture of the Town Thermometer will be my photo of the day today!

I'm really going to try to do this! I found a template from 2009 by Mushy or something similar and it will be a 25 page photobook when I'm done. Making it much more cost effective than having 52 pages or more. So I'm going to roll with it. So far I have made it! Hey, it's 4 days!! I figure if I work on it each week, I should be able to keep up. I can kind of pre-plan it out when I have time so it will make it easier. Who knows if I will really keep up my goal. I've started this many years in a row and never made much past January. I figure it can be weight loss record keeping too. Two birds with one stone?! Sure!

New Year 2012

So I've officially updated my ticker for my weight loss. UGH...Holidays were not strick that, I was not kind. I have no one to blame but myself. I have slacked at my walking and not keeping track of what I am eating. Not much caring either. Not sure why I got this way? I guess I just got caught up in the season. Hey, I'm allowed. I just need to re-focus. I can do this. I just feel kind of sad about the whole holiday season. I blame the weather. We have only had one day of any measureable snowfall amounts. It's been in the 50's and rainy. HATE IT. I love my snow. There's a dusting outside this morning. Nothing too exciting. But maybe this means we are moving in the right direction? to figure out my meal planning for the week and clean up before the kids head back to school tomorrow. And we go back to work.

My sister's wedding was awesome! I am not sure I have ever been to such a formal affair in all my life?! I guess I didn't know my sister as well as I thought I did?! I never took her as the formal affair kind of girl? (we have the same father and didn't grow up together) Oh well, it was a blast and that makes it worth it! They had fireworks, real live fireworks that went off for about a half hour. Amazing! A photobooth by We took full advantage of that, let me tell ya! FUN! We made it worth the money from just my siblings! LOL

I guess that's enough for today. I'll try remain true to my regular blog postings this year. TRY!
