Rest in Peace, Jax.


For those of you that have followed me for a while, you know I have a Body Bugg that I affectionately named Jax.  Today, Jax is completely dark with no twinkly lights and no information available.  I'm just sick about it.  He was fine when I put him on for yoga this morning, fine when I took him off to shower, and fine when I put him back on for the day.  I took him off to upload info to my computer and...nothing.  I've kept him plugged in hoping that it was a dead as a doornail battery, but...nothing.  I haven't even had him for a year, so I have contacted Apex hoping they can help me. 

I really don't want to purchase another one, but I know that if that is the only option, I will.  This thing has really helped me.  I have lost over 30 pounds since I got this little guy.  Every time I get in a rut, I analyze what I have been putting in my body and what calories I have been burning to get me jumpstarted again.  Something about all this information really makes a difference for me.  Fingers crossed that Apex can fix it for me!!


I can't wait to go shopping with my mom this weekend!  Not only do I need a ton of stuff, it is going to be so much fun!  :)  I went to a designer consignment store this weekend just to check it out.  I tried on lots of stuff and it was super fun that many things were too big.  Such a different feeling!!  I tried on a beautiful size 14 suit and the jacket just hung on me.  YAY!  All of the size 14 pants I tried on were too big or close to too big.  The size 12 pair I tried on were slightly too tight, but I would have bought them if I really liked them because they would fit perfectly very soon.

I ended up buying a cute little white lace cami (XL) which I thought would be a great layering piece, a cute shirt (Large) that I will wear to work, & a dress (XL).  The dress is silver with sequence.  It is a tank dress and shorter than I normally wear.  But the girls around the dressing room & I thought it would look cute dressed down with a pair of flip flops and it would be perfect for my trip to Florida.  I hope I don't end up thinking it is too short.  It isn't "inappropriate" short, but my thighs are a problem area, so I don't want to accentuate them, you know?  But it was flirty and fun and that is what I want to portray. 


Okay, I have decided that this is something I want to do.  Now I just have to research the places in the area and make an appointment.  I will let you all know how it goes!

Don't be scared of the waxing! I started waxing at my heaviest, and trust me, the women who do it see so much, they don't even bat an eyelash. It's not as painful as you'd expect either.

So sorry to hear about Jax, hopefully the company will do the right thing.

Have fun shopping with your Mama this weekend!

OMG...please come back Jax!!! I just got my armband 2 weeks ago. I am so depressed when my mind slips and I don't put it back on after a shower.

I hope Apex can fix him or send you another. Keep me updated, just in case I have this issue in the future.

Shopping is going to be great. Enjoy. You are looking awesome. BTW where is the April photo?

Fun! I love shopping. I just don't do it enough (which I think my husband thanks the Good Lord every day about).
