I have been going crazy that I didn't post yesterday. My life has just gotten so busy this week. But....I have so many great things to report.

First, the morning started off with my trying to sleep in. I had told my hubby to wake me up early so I could do my Couch to 5k thing since I would be home late yesterday. Well, I didn't want to get up ad I hit the snooze....but then after my hubby left for work I started to feel guilty and I knew that if I didn't get up I would feel crappy all day long. So...I got up and a few huff and puffs later, Week 2 Day 2 complete!! I felt so good all day.

Second, I have been tracking my food on livestrong.com and so when we had pizza the other night I knew how many pieces I could have and how many calories were in each kind of pizza. I made a wise decision about eating non-diet food and I felt really good about it. (Better than the cheeseburgers)

Also, at school I have been turning down snacks left and right. It seems like my snack buddies are a little upset with me because I am not giving into their tasty treats. I have my bag of snacks (banana, orage, apple, and popcorn) and I carry them with me to school and now people are calling me "The Bag Lady!" Oh well, I would rather be called that than some other names.

Last night I came home late because I went to a Bunko Party. It is a game where a bunch of women get together and play dice. It is soooo much fun! Well, at the end they serve dessert and I sad, "No thank you!" Can you believe that? Awesome!!

The best thing to happen since my ast post is that I won an award!! My first!! A HUGE shout-out to Shannon and Katie for my Sunshine Award!!! Thank you so much!! This has totally made my day even better!!

    Lol @ the bag lady bit. I remember when I used to work bringing everything in snack bags with the proper portion and the guys teasing me. The women in the office used to get huffy because we would have a 3pm vending machine convention to go buy a snack everyday, but when I was watching what I ate, I wouldn't go and they would whine.

    And Bunco is awesome, I love playing it :D
