Gym Bunny Barbie checking in!

Okay, first things have to read Steph's blog to know where all of this is coming from. She is one of the most amazing people EVER! She has lost 245# without any surgery--all with diet and exercise and did you know she HATES to exercise?!?!? Don't we all?? So here I go with my Barbie oath:

The Barbie must promise to uphold the Barbie ways which include whining when you feel like it, being bitchy on cue and knowing that NO MATTER WHAT or WHO (yeah even if she is a rich, plastic surgery induced, exercise obsessed, bubble head) comes across your path - that you are Barbie.....beautiful and worthy!!! Size 6 or 60, Porsche or Pinto, flat belly and good boobs or pannus and dried prunes - we are AWESOME!! BARBIE POWER!!!

I DO! I fully accept this oath and will uphold to the best of my Barbie abilities.

Collette sent me a picture of my Barbie. Totally not what I was thinking but I LOVE it! Too bad I can't change her outfit to be RED as that is my favorite color!

Okay now where do I start??

I got my DS back on Friday. I was so thrilled to see him and he came running into my arms at Ruby Tuesday's. SOOO glad he is home.

On the WW front..yeah...not exactly there. Getting back on track 100% tomorrow. The weekend wasn't horrible but it involved some alcohol and some ice cream. Oh well. I have decided to go back to the meetings tomorrow night. I HATE going on a Monday, but maybe it will help the weekend. I am even going to stay for the new comer orientation too. Maybe that will get my a$$ in gear. I am still going to go by my scales for my weekly WIs here since that's what I've been doing so far. Can you believe I FORGOT to WI on Friday?!?!? Completely spaced it and forgot. I got on later that morning when I realized I had forgot and it wasn't pretty. Will see what tomorrow says. I know this weekend hasn't been great and I desperately need some water. I've only gotten about 64 ounces in today. DH is debating giving up cokes/sodas for good. I may be there with him. But I don't know. I TRY to limit myself to one a day...maybe 2, but on a bad day I can drink 4 plus the normal 100+ ounces of water I usually get. We'll see. Last time I did that (when I was pregnant with DS) I got MAJOR migraines. AND, no I am not pregnant. TOM showed today and my surgery is Friday.

Here I am Gym Bunny Barbie and I haven't been to the gym in eons. :( I do love the elliptical but I was trying to do Couch to 5K and then last week I did nothing. This week looks bad too b/c I have to work 2-12 hour days this week again. I am going with DS class at daycare on Tuesday on a field trip to the zoo. So lots of walking there and trying to herd 3 year old should count for some kind of APs, no??

So here's my plan of action for the week:

#1--Back to meetings on Monday for sure.
#2-- all dinner meals are planned for the week with their sides so I am going to plan my lunch around that and my afternoon snacks since that is my hardest time
#3--WATER and lots of it--at least 120 ounces a day, hopefully more
#4--back to lots of fruits and veggies--I have no excuse as my garden is overflowing with veggies. Minimum 5 per day.

Okay, those are my goals for the week. I didn't add in the exercise b/c I know this week is going to be insane. I may try for 2 days, but we'll see. I WANT to, but don't know if I will be physically able. DH is working like a mad man trying to meet some deadlines so I am left to do it ALL with dinner--make it and clean it up, and with DS--DH usually gives him a shower and puts him to bed, but that's a precious hour of work he can't afford to lose this week.

I have a recipe I want to post so I hope to do that tomorrow. Pizza Pasta Casserole--it was delish!

I better hit the sack b/c 6 a.m. will come all to early for me. I hate working. Actually, no I hate getting up early to work. But to get in 12 hours that's what has to be done. UGH.

Thanks for the Who-hoo's! :o)

No, as of right now Jeremy isn't going to be the pastor of our church. Since he's still in seminary it's not really an option, but honestly it would be hard to take on our own church if it was. Something like, "It's impossible for a man to be a prophet in his hometown"...

Love your Barbie!! Sounds like you have a great plan for the upcoming week. A field trip to the zoo definitely sounds like some activity points. Have fun!!
