In Other News:

Not sure what to say about this ensemble -- this is what she was wearing when I came home from work last night! Brian has good taste -- USUALLY -- don't know what possessed him to create this *look*?!?! His defense: It was on the hanger together! Which I find hard to believe seeing how the pants are actually pajama bottoms!!! *shakes head*

My contribution is the gloves and hat which are courtesy of Target's lovely $1 bins! LOVE them for *missed you* goodies after a long day at work when I am feeling uber guilty for being gone nine hours away from my little girl! Super fun AND cheap for dress-up!

Happy Sunday! Oh yes -- I really want to welcome and thank all of my new followers!!! I appreciate your comments and the time you take to read my silliness. I may not respond to every comment but I do read them and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them dearly!!! xxoo! ♥cyn♥

HoLLa: Weight Loss Update


I should have made this post Friday… but alas we are in the midst of *Easter Season* at work (I work in retail photography) and are completely SLAMMED! My bank account is beyond happy but the long hours and not seeing my family ALL weekend really for a lack of a better word – SUCKS! Such is life, aye?

Anywho… Here we are at the beginning of WEEK FIVE – WoWie!

So to update: I had my worst week to date – and honestly it wasn’t a bad week, just not as good as the previous four. Kinda typical for me – I have four or five good weeks then I slack. But sometimes I need a slack to smack me back into reality. I only made it to the gym three times this past week and I did the bare minimum even when I was there. I have no one to blame but myself – because I had the time and chose to be lackluster about my workouts.

Boo hiss @ ME!

Added to the fact that good ol’ Mother Nature is up to no good in the form of WICKED PMS – and well, the scale reflected it perfectly.

I was up 2 lbs. this week.

Honestly, I was almost expecting worse.

I am not saying that I am happy with a 2lb. gain but considering the amounts of chocolate I consumed to ease my PMS – it could have been UGLY! But it goes to show that if I hadn’t gone to the gym even those three times – my gain probably would have been worse!

Bottom line: I know better. I can do better. I WILL do better!

Like I said… sometimes I need a dose of reality to get me in the groove when I slack. And the reality is I need to be at the gym giving it my all. I deserve an hour to do this for myself and I need to stop denying myself this time to get healthier and in shape!

In other semi-related news:

Not sure if I mentioned that my Mom has been going to the gym with me for the past couple of weeks?

Yes – my 63 year old Mom who has never been to a gym (The Jane Fonda Workout circa 1985 does NOT count!) her entire life!

She walks on the treadmill for 40 minutes and then bikes 20 minutes!

I am so proud of her!!!

She is really doing amazing on her weight loss journey!

YaY Mom!

Anywho… I shall finish this post with some startling facts that I hope motivate me this week as my goals are to make it to the gym four times and to keep my paws outta the snacks!

My 41st Birthday is a month from tomorrow!


Our pool is opened in less than two months!


Happy Sunday and I hope you all have a FANTABULOUS week!


PS… I have completed 47.7 miles on the virtual Trans American Trail and am 12.88 miles away from Glendale, VA.

Will I ever get out of VA?!?! *heh*

And I will post an updated pic in the ♥fifty-two♥ tab ASAP!
