Back to the Grind

Well, Christmas vacation has offically ended for me. Back to work tomorrow. Although I will miss all the extra time with Hubs I am actually ready to head back.

I also wanted to give you a heads up. Tomorrow Hubs and I will begin our commitment (not resolution) to be healthier and lose some weight. We have decided to follow the Weight Watchers points plan and start a weekly workout schedule. Actually daily for me since I plan on walking everyday. Hubs had already joined the YMCA about 3 months ago and we decided that I am going to join this month so that it can be something we do together. Before I was walking on my treadmill at home while he was at the gym. We are really excited about it and have been praying that God will give us the strength and willpower to stick with it. For accountablilty purposes I will be recording our weight each Monday on here. I am extremly embarrased for any of you to see what I weigh but if I know I have to fess up to ya'll on Monday then maybe it will help me keep on track throughout the week.

I am now on the 3rd book in the Twilight series. The second one was really good too. Alot of people said that they didn't like the 2nd one as well but I think I may have even liked it better. I finally saw the movie yesterday and it was really good. It was nice to put faces with the people and places that I've been reading about. And what nice faces they were. It makes me very disturbed that they are so young (The boy that played Jacob was born in 1992, what!).

Wishing you good luck with your commitment of being healthier this year! I am going to try to do that this year too, and I felt like I would be held more "accountable" if I blogged about it. We can help keep each other in check! :)

Good luck on your WW plan! I've done it before and it really works. It's the only thing that I've done that has worked. The counting part was annoying for me, but definitely worth it.

Yes I will be your WW buddy!! Perfect!! I will tell you my favorite thing so far: the hostess cupcake 100 cal packs (chocolate cupcakes, and they have strawberry ones too!) are only 1 point for ALL three cupcakes! I know they are tiny bite-sized cakes, but so what...they are yummy and they totally kill my sweet tooth with only wasting ONE point!!!
Also I don't count points on Saturday or Sunday. I don't go overboard or anything, I just don't stress about sticking to my point schedule on those two days.
Good luck!!! Let's keep in touch =-)

I just started (and finished) the second book today. I missed Edward the whole time so I wasn't as in love with it as the first, but it was still fantastic. I NEVER would have thought I would like these but I saw the movie first and it suckered me in...I needed more details so I picked up the books.
