Tuesday already?

Well, I woke up, came downstairs, had a cup of coffee, and then it hit me..... gosh, it's Tuesday! I immediately stopped drinking my coffee and got out the scale... after all, I can't have all of that heavy liquid in my belly then it's time to weigh. So i turned on the stupid thing cursing myself for not doing more this week. It's been a rough week, but that's always an excuse. Evan has been sick all week, I had company over, and well, I've been feeling crummy. All of those adding up in my brain, I'm sure I haven't done so hot this week. Oh well, here's the moment of truth.... YEAY!!!!! i finally passed that 10 lb mark!!!! I'm 139! wootwoot!!!! I'm happy, not happy enough to pull up my socks and go to the gym, but happy! hahahaha So I hop on over to Lena's blog: http://www.scrapbutterfly.com/ and got a little progress tracker for my sidebar. She is the most resourceful Internet person ever! Lena can find ANYTHING on the Internet! She'…

Seriously Fat Tuesday....

So, I get up to weigh this morning, thinking I'm good, I've got this... I get on the wii scale, and that little ass groans. This is not going to be a good morning... the wii measures my balance and I'm all good there, then it tells me my weight.... I wanted to cry.... 143.... so I gained... I thought that can't be rite... so i went in and used the restroom, and came back.... thought light and airy thoughts, and it said i weighed 142.5, so I'mgoin' with that. I gained a pound an a half. I'm sad, I'mfrustrated, and I want to go eat something horrible for me..... well actually I don't. My mom made these cinnamon coffee cake muffins and sent some home with me, I ate a half of one and though, what the heck am I doing???? I want to create a calorie deficit, not eat worse stuff... so half way through this decedentyummy concoction, i put it down, I'm going to go have toast and fruit. That will serve me better. I need to work hard this week to get rid of…

Cake, cake and more cake!

OK, so I have quite a few cakes commin' up... here's the first. This Toy Story cake was made for a little boy who was turning 6 today. Obviously, he loves Toy Story 3, so that's where I went with this cake. Here's all the pics:
The entire box is made from cake and then covered in fondant. The packing material is air popped popcorn! ha ha I used an airbrush to distress the box so that it looked beaten up and old, I hope that translates in the pictures. OK, well it's off to watch the SF Giants win, I'll be back for Fat Tuesday and keep checking back for more cakes soon!

It's not Tuesday anymore......

I know, I know, I know, It's not Tuesday anymore.... but I did weigh, and I was so depressed that I never made it a priority to post. So, here's my results... I gained weight... yeah... so I'm back to 143... not what I wanted to do... but I didn't work out a whole bunch either. I know that I need to create a calorie deficit to lose weight, but I just haven't gotten there yet.

I spoke with my friend Christina, who is a raw foods chef... no really... raw foods chef./... and she's amazing!!! She gave me some great pointers to get some fat out of my diet and not feel like I'm depriving myself. She told me of the evils of meat and dairy, although I don't think I could every fully give up either, but I will be cutting WAY back!!! I already have... I've cut a lot of dairy out, and I only have meat once or twice a week, and it's way less of a portion than I used to have, and you know what.... I FEEL BETTER. She also convinced my to buy almond milk...seri…

Fat Tuesday, yeay!

Ok, so here's the deal... I was dreading weighing this morning; I've been sick all week. eating like crap and sitting on the couch doing a whole lottanada. So, I sloughed downstairs, poured myself a cup of coffee, and had a Mexicanstare down with my wii... I never knew that inanimate objects were so good at staring contests, but it did win despite my valiant efforts, and i turned it on, no going back now... I stepped on the scale and the little man inside the wii said "oh." That little jerk almost got hot coffee in the face... if I could have found him.... ha ha ha

So after all of that you can guess my astonishment when the little progress line stopped moving UNDER my old one... yeah, that little progress tracker stopped, my heart lept and i actually smiled.... "no way," I actually said out loud, "please, just let it be at least a pound, I'd be stoked with losing a pound this week, I don't deserve it, but I'll take it!" I clicked the…

I've got a golden ticket...

Come on, sing it with me... ohhh I've got a golden tickeeeettttt..... hahahok, so I was never a member of Glee club (although a HUGE fan of the show). But, here is one of the 30 birthday invitations that I made this weekend:
The candy bars are huge and wrapped in a custom printed paper wrapper. The golden tickets are worded just like the ones from the movie (Gene Wilder version of course) and printed on metallic gold cardstock that I found at Michael's. I totally LOVE the outcome of these... as a kid, I would have totally hugged the person who invited me to their party by way of candy bar! ha ha haOk, I'm still not feeling well, totally didn't go to the gym today, and I'm being a luff sitting on my couch watching HLN... Will I ever be well??? I'm going to make some hot tea and hope that helps my throat feel any better, wish me luck!
