Wednesday? Really?

Ok, so Fat Tuesday has come and gone, and I totally didn't even realize it! ha ha ha Go figure. So my post is a day late, oh well, so's life. Yesterday I came down with a head cold that made me feel like I got hit in the head with a freight train!!! I'm currently laying in bed with one econo sized box of tissue nearly empty and a red nose that would make Rudolph jealous. Being sick sucks... well, it blows....it's nose...through a costco sized case of tissue, only to realize it needs more...

So I ended up weighing this morning. It paid off though.... I weigh 143.5!!!! Yup, that's a total of 6.5 lbs that I have lost so far. Now, mind you, I'm sure 3.5 lbs of that was probably snot over the past few days, but oh well, I'll take it.... Weight loss, is weight loss. Let's re-cap how I got there... shall we?

Last weekend I was doing wedding coordinating... so Friday was rehearsal, not to mention I had to make 2 wedding cakes (well one was a cupcake tower) and …

The sweet smell of the ballpark!

I am posting this card for 365 challenge, it has been a long while since I have posted for them, but when I checked in this morning... they had a challenge I just couldn't resist. It is to use a sweet smell to inspire your card. well to me... the sweet smell of the ballpark is always alluring. So here it is... take me out to the ball game, postseason starts October 6Th and I'm sooo excited!!! Go Giants!!! P.S. I need to thank Emily for the awesome idea for this card! Thanks so much Em for your creativeness! She made the original card that I CASED for the idea... you can check it at her blog, by clicking here. Sorry I didn't post this part earlier. I'm an awful person today. It'll never happen again Emily, I humbly appologize.Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Fat Tuesday, week 2!

Ugh! That's what I have to say. This week has been super challenging. First I was told I had shingles and given medication that I had to take, with food, 5 times a day.... now I know that it is a good thing to eat 5 times a day, but that is a seriously hard thing to do when the medication makes you wanna ralph!!!! So I went back for a second opinion yesterday. To my relief, I was told that I have a pulled muscle in my shoulder/back and it is pinching nerves against my therasic (I don't know how to properly spell that one!) vertebrae. Not a good thing, very painful, but WAYYYYY better than the alternatives. So I was given some Motrin and sent home to rest. ALSO not a good thing since cake orders have been pouring in! That is exciting, but daunting considering this weekend is the wedding that I have been coordinating also. I guess I'll be getting my work outs rolling and kneading fondant! Yeay me! hahahah This pic is of me helping my son blow out his candles on his cupcake t…

Fat Tuesdays!

But it's not Tuesday........!!!!!!!!!

OK, so my bestest Pal in the whole entire world is posting a THINspiration Thursday blog each week to help her get healthy and lose some lbs.! I'm so excited for her, and I'm so inspired by her, that I want to copy her. I did make sure it was OK with her first, I didn't want to steal her thunder or anything. Anyways... check out her postings at http://www.scrapbutterfly.blogspot.com/. So I am going to start mine as Fat Tuesdays! I hope that someday soon it can be skinny Tuesdays, but I digress...



Here's the dreaded pic of me....

Seriously... check out that double chin and muffin top!!!!!!! this pic was taken a few months ago, but it just rings more true today. I am starting my journey at 150 lbs. Some may think, oh that's not so bad.... but I'm only 5'3" tall, and that's on a good day (like when I'm wearing heels!! hahahaha) !!

OK, so a little background, I make cakes, cookies, sweets, sugar.... ALL DAY LON…
