The Honest Scrap

The amazing fellow weight-loss blogger over at 100in12 gave me my first blogging award, The Honest Scrap. So here I am repaying the favor, putting up the award and about to pass it on!

The rules for this shindig are:

1. “The Honest Scrap” award must be shared!
2. The recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves.
3. The recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.
4. Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given this award.
5. Those 10 bloggers should link back to the blog that awarded them.

The 10 things about me:

1. I live in Birmingham, Alabama. War Eagle!!! (That's Auburn University for you out o' towners.)

2. I love the fall because it means the best time of the year is coming... my birthday! oh no. wait... the holidays! :)

3. I have played the piano since I was 9, but I'm no where near as good as I wish I was. I still find comfort in just sitting and playing for hours.

4. Traveling is by far the best thing on Earth. I would do it for a living if I could figure out how.

5. I make lists out the wazoo. Lists of things to do today, things to do this week, things to accomplish this month, etc. I don't think I'd get anything done if it weren't on a list somewhere.

6. Like 100in12, I love office supplies. The 10-pack of Sharpie Accent Liquid Highlighters was made for me.

7. I was born and raised in the same town (in north Alabama), and I have had some of the best friends a girl could ask for since I could walk. I am noting without them.

8. Cupcakes are my weakness. Especially these.

9. I am addicted to the Food Network. Especially Chopped and Ace of Cakes.

10. I enjoy entertaining friends. I wish I could do it more often. I go all out for parties with planning and organizing, just because I want my friends to know I care.

Now my 10 Recipients!

It's getting harder.

Last weigh-in: 277.8
This week's weight: 277.8
Change since last week: 0
Total pounds lost: 15.2

Well I guess it's better than going up. I need to get out of this rut. I haven't been to the gym in at least two weeks. I am so dedicated to this, but I find making myself do it getting harder and harder.

Where's my new motivation going to come from?

It's been a long time gone

Last weigh-in: 279.6
This week's weight: 277.8
Change since last week: -1.8
Total pounds lost: 15.2

It's been a long few weeks. Work has been out of control. Personal life is perfectly fine, but I'm staying ultra busy with visits to friends, long work hours and catching up on life. Oh and Auburn football. :) War eagle!

My food hasn't been great, but it hasn't been bad at all. I notice this when I go spend the weekend with someone. I see what they eat and what their choices are, and then I realize how much different min are. I won't say better, but different. I also have gotten to where I can physically get very sick after eating too much. I've noticed that especially with friends lately. I hate to say no to their beautiful food, but I literally can feel myself being so full it's painful. So here's to learning to say no.

I'm looking forward to an excellent week. Gotta get back in the gym since I wasn't able to last week with all the long work hours.

And here's to Stephen for checking in and reminding me of my goal. :) I might just need to join your team after all.

Until later.
