Putting It in Writing

Weeks have gone by and pounds have come off, but I have really lack the motivation to take off the final 7lbs or so that I need to.  To be completely honest, I have about 9 lbs that I should loose.  .   .  With that being said, I am putting this in writing.  I am hoping that once this is "out" on the world wide web, I will have no choice but to suck it up and do it.  So this is it.  It is on.  Anyone else with me?

  • The plan: start the original Weight W.atchers Points program (I tried the new WW program and was really not happy with the results otherwise known as the lack of results)
  • Official start date: 4/19/11
  • Official starting weight:  (not sure I am really ready to share this info :-)
I will be waiting a couple of weeks before I bring in exercise. I re-tweaked my knee this weekend, so it needs to rest a little first-- that's another story.

Skiing Fun and Wedding Bliss

Taos was AMAZING!!!!  The snow, not so much, but we still had a blast.  Thanks to the Highams for putting up with us for the week.  We had a great time skiing and eating glorious, glorious New Mexican food.  It is absolutely fabulous. If you have never been there, the food and scenery make the trip totally worth it.  The hardest part of the trip for me was being away from my baby for 6 nights!!  Luckily, my mom and dad were willing to bring Liam up a day early so that I could at least see him sleeping in his crib when we got home.

Mommy Tip #2: Don't leave your baby for more than a day or two if you don't have to; you will miss them TERRIBLY!!!!

My brother-in-law recently got married as well.  Hence:

Mommy Tip #3: If you want to enjoy any wedding festivities, you need to find a reliable babysitter to stay with the baby in the evening.

Liam is like a clock.  If you get off schedule, he certainly lets you know it.  None the less, the ceremony appeared beautiful from the outside looking in.  Liam and I got to see the bride walk in and then promptly had to go out to the foyer.  Coincidentally, my nephew Carson also could not make it too far in the ceremony.  Needless to say, Tara (my SIL) and I got to view the wedding from the "cheap seats."
