I finished in the top ten!!! Eighth place for this girl and almost 19 pounds lighter! Now, I still have about 20 lbs to go, I have a new goal which is to drop it by June 22nd (or sooner) as that is when my friend is doing a half marathon. She is training for that, and we are going to help each other stay motivated.

I can't wait to get started again. I took last night and today off from working out and eating healthy. I start working out again tomorrow and will start my healthy eating on Friday... as I have some leftovers from today to finish tomorrow. :) Yay!!! Here are the final results!!!

I Just Learned That...

The story below is not true... :( I am sad, but glad that a poor person was not stuck in someone's closet all day being called a troll...

Today is my final weigh in! I will let you know the results soon!

I've got the troll locked in the closet!!!

So, I went out to dinner tonight with my friend and her hubby. And she told me the best story I have heard in a long time. I had to share it with you all.

Her dentist's grandma's friend's son (sounds like a lie of a story already) has some developmental problems. He is not supposed to call his mom at work unless it is an emergency. (He is older, but lives at home due to his developmental issues.) Anyways, he calls his mom and says, "I caught the troll in the closet..." She says, "This is not an emergency. Don't call me at work."

An hour later, he calls back and says, "I have the troll locked in the closet, don't worry, it's fine." She again says, "This is not an emergency, stop calling." He calls again, and says, "I pushed the bed up against the closet, so the troll can't get out." She says, "Okay, I'm on my way home," because her day was done at work.

She gets home to hear someone banging on the closet door. "Oh, great," she thinks, "What could it be?" She tells her son to move the bed and she will open the door. Out pops a midget (little person) in a suit. Apparently, he was a Jehovah's witness, and the son thought he was a troll after he started to tell him about "The Truth".

Oh, I laughed so hard... I might have made my friend retell the story a second time tonight! I know, this story is very un-PC, but that adds to the funniness.

In other news... we went to a club and this cute guy told me I was pretty. Not gonna lie, it's been a long time since someone said that to me! :) I know he was drunk, and it didn't mean much, but it's nice to hear every once in awhile.

Never Eating Pizza Again!!!


So... I forgot my lunch yesterday. As you all know I have been working out trying to lose weight and eating super healthy. Well, we had pizza at our office yesterday for lunch and like, I said before I had forgotten to pack one. Yay... free lunch, I thought. I had two pieces of pizza and enjoyed every minute of it.

The day went on, I worked out, and got ready for bed. As I was heading to bed I started having sharp pains in my lower abdomin. I have had friends go to the hospital for gas pains, and never understood how it could hurt that bad... gas is clearly gas. Oh, how I get it now! It was soooo painful. I even took my temperature because I know you usually have a fever if you are having an appendicitis. No fever, took some Gas-X and went to bed.

Or tried too... I had to lay in the same position until I fell asleep. Then I would wake up every couple hours because I was in so much pain. It was horrible! I thought I would wake up and life would be good. NO SUCH LUCK!

Today at work, I could barely walk it hurt so bad. And, it's not like I can announce, well I am having gas pains... please leave me alone! I had a training session, and I had to tell my trainer so we would not be doing a lot of jumping. She is so funny... she just says, "Oh, I've had gas all day because I ate bad yesterday!"

Too funny... so the good news is, I literally CAN'T eat bad food anymore. Love my chicken, love my whole grains, love my veggies... hate greasy pizza. But, in good news... I am still losing weight, and now have a new motivation to eat healthy!

Mistress Who?

I am watching the "E! Special Kiss and Tell: Other Woman" right now and I had to blog about it. I cannot believe how crazy these woman are. One of the women was cheating on her live-in boyfriend with Tiger Woods and then when Tiger wouldn't help her get out of a situation with her boyfriend that she says was "unlivable," she got really mad at him. Hello! You were the one cheating on your boyfriend with a MARRIED man!!! Why would he help you, why do you deserve help from him?

Don't get me wrong... I have made some mistakes in my day. When I worked at a bar I totally got sucked in to that "free/no rules" lifestyle. But for one day I do not think I deserved any special treatment for any of the choices I made. It's not normal or healthy to want to be the other woman. Or, to expect that they are going to leave their wife for you. If he really wanted you, you two would be together.

I believe everyone deserves forgiveness, but there are just some things you can't get over. I would not want to be with someone who had cheated on me. I could forgive, but not forget. But, I am so annoyed with all the mistresses coming out being like, he mistreated me. Umm, no. The only victim in all of this is the wife and children. You knew what you were doing. You made those choices. You got involved with a married man, why should we feel sorry for you?

You are not a celebrity. To be famous for sleeping with a married man is not the way to rise to fame. Get over it, and get over yourself. Get yourself tested and find a single man... there's my rant for today!
