Facebook is bad for blogging...

During Lent, I was so great about blogging daily and keeping myself on track.  I was faithfully reading other blogs and staying motivated.  As soon as Lent (and my Facebook hiatus) ended, I stopped being so dedicated to blogging.  There is absolutely no question that blogging is an important tool for me with weight loss so I have to be better. 

My diet bet ends tonight at midnight!  I'm not quite to my goal because I had a bit of Monday bloat.  But I think that if I'm super strict with my intake today and I Jazzercise tonight, I should get there.  Fingers crossed!

This weekend was super fun.  BFF & I left about 9am Saturday morning for Germanfest.  We had to run a few errands, but then headed up 35 with our Starbucks.  The little town was adorable.  We got there before noon so the festival wasn't very crowded.  We had a traditional German lunch with sausage, kraut, potatoes and assorted veggie salads.  We walked around the different booths and I bought a cute flower to hang on the wall that was made from small horseshoes.  I also bought a gooey butter cake that is now in my freezer.  I was so impressed I didn't scarf it down!

Then we sat and watched the local high school German dance group perform for a while.  They were adorable.  Once we had enough of the festival, we went to the downtown shops.  There were only a few, but they were nice.  I bought a maxi dress and BFF got some fancy pants like the crazy ones I sported a few weeks ago.  Hers have more colors and are a little more wild, but they are so her!

Then it was time for the casino.  We stayed for a few hours and BFF left $200 richer.  I was not a big winner, but I spent less than usual so no complaints from me!

Yesterday, I bought the cutest shirt from Old Navy and I'm wearing it today with my new Toms.  I felt so stinking cute.  Until I had my picture taken, that is.  I'm definitely at the point where I feel smaller than I actually am.  I'm going to post the picture even though I don't like it.  I know I feel good and that is what is important!


I lost another 6 tenths of a pound this week.  That is four solid weeks in a row of weight loss.  I haven't had that since July of last year. 

Today's Nutrition Plan:
Breakfast:  coffee with cream, meatballs, babybel
Lunch:  natural lunchable type thing
Snack:  protein pack
Dinner:  tbd

Today's Fitness Plan:
CrossFit: Fail!  I got up this morning and didn't want to go.  I somehow convinced myself that it would be better for my diet bet if I would do cardio, so I'm going to Jazzercise tonight.  I still plan to CF three times this week, so all is well.

 Hugs!

FB is like mini-blogging.I agree, it gets us away from here, which isn't good!
Love the shirt AND shoes. You're so stinkin' cute.
Have a great day!
