Wonderful Wednesday


I measured myself last night! I think its important to measure inches lost, as well as weight when you are trying to lose. Especially when doing a lot of lifting and toning activities. My last weigh-in for measurements was on 2/15....and I am SO proud to announce a loss of 1" from my neck, 1" from my waist and 1.5" from my hips!!! My weight loss total has only been around 5 lbs so it's nice to see some good positive numbers verifying that I am working hard, and I am on the right path!

Last night I was sitting around waiting for Spencer to get off work so we could go grocery shopping. I settled in and decided to watch, "The Biggest Loser". I've never been a huge fan of the show. I know some people are die hard fans but I just never got into it. Watching last night however, was different! I was drawn in and amazed by people just like me! People who wanted to make a change in their bodies and they were doing it! They were inspiring! I can't wait to have my own before and after pictures. :) I don't have as much weight to lose as most of the people on this show but I can't wait to stand tall and proud knowing that I did this for me!
And then there was the JERK. The guy who stacked the teams in his favor and put everyone on the opposite side at a disadvantage....well yaknow what? KARMA! I loved every second of the underdogs victory, and watching you sweat as you had to send a teammate home!

I am so excited to go and get my hair done this afternoon I could burst! I am going to grow it out i've decided so he will just be refreshing the color, banning the nasty roots and cleaning up the style IE:Getting rid of those split-ends! I can't wait to relax in the chair, drink some wine, catch up on the Hollywood gossip and be lavished in luxurious relaxation!


Had to be up early today... coffee, is my savior! I actually have cut way back on coffee and have been drinking looseleaf tea most mornings. I do a mixture of ginger/tangerine and Pomegranate green and pour it over ice. The ice melts and waters it down a bit so it's a nice refreshing crisp beverage. Today, coffee coffee!


Shhhhhhh I have a secret!...... Spencer and I have started planning our honeymoon! We found a resort we absolutely love! The Secrets Wild Orchid in Montego Bay Jamaica!!! It seems wonderful! This may be where we go! Yesterday I contacted a good friend of my moms who is a travel agent. She is looking into that resort, as well as a few others to see what kinds of deals she can get us. I'm hoping to hear from her sometime today! But in the meantime, i'm focusing on Secrets!


I am in love with this necklace. The silver detail, the blue stone....its just stunning!


This makes me grin ear to ear! Its just a print that invites you to smile!


I feel good. I mean, really really good. The sun is shining, the birds are singing...the dolphins are adorable! I want to go walk through the streets, stroll along a river, dance in the sunshine. Maybe it's that spring is around the corner. Maybe I just feel light and beautiful today. Maybe I am young and in love and ready to shout it from the rooftops. Either way, I just can't help but keep smiling today with this bright blue beautiful sky!


These boots popped up on google image search when I typed in the word "frolic". I almost peed my pants from laughing! These would be pretty hot if you dressed up as an elf though! And yes, they are available in green as well!

So that's my random post for the day. It's a little here, a little there and a little crazy but I hope you enjoyed it!

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

The tea sounds delicious! Way too much effort for me though. What workout are you doing?

Kimbirdy said...

wow! congrats on the shrinking measurements! I love that you make a point of not focusing on weight. Muscle is heavier than fat so if you're working out regularly, higher weight is good! It's your body fat count that matters, but most women don't pay attention to that, so thanks!
Also, I love that peacock print - so cheerful!
