Hump day update!

Howdy! Well, well, well. First of all, thank you guys for your comments, support and advice. I'm really trying to turn things around for myself and get the rest of my weight off. You guys are always so good to me! Thanks. I have always tracked my food on myfittnesspal.com and really think it's pretty easy. But, with all the talk in blogland about livestrong.com, I tried yesterday to figure it out. I think it's just not as user friendly as the other, that or I'm just special. Either way, I think I have some learning to do first.

Tina gave me some good advice about just trying to make small changes, they really do add up. However, yesterday, not the best change day, I went over on the wine consumption at a friends birthday celebration. Oh well, it's one day in my life right? I've done very well food wise so far this week. I've been tracking and getting my protein over the 50 gram mark, for me that's hard. I read often that some people get 100 grams of protein in a day, I guess you would have to be supplementing to do that without going totally over on calories.

Yesterday I went to a new hairdresser...I've been with the same girl for so long and just thought I needed to shake things up a little. I changed my hair color recently and now, I have a new do to go with it. It's a little edgy for me, but I like it and my hubby said he likes it too. My youngest child told me I looked like Kate Goselin this morning, only without a ton of kids. I don't think so, trust me, it's not that haircut! Anyway, I tried to take a picture today to post, but I took like 10 at my desk and deleted them all, because I look like a spaz in each of them and you can't really see my do. Oh well.

Friday we have a Mardi Gras cocktail party, I'm going to get my spray on tan tomorrow so it will have time to process, lol! I'm excited, this is the Krewe that I was a Duchess in last year, so we are being presented for the final time. My duke was recently diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment, it's so sad. He's a wonderful person and I hate to see him go through this. I'm hoping he will be well enough to come for the presentation. He and I have been friends for more than 20 years and I'm so glad that we got to be on the court together.

Saturday is my birthday, as I said I'm turning 49, my hubby's birthday is Monday, he'll be 43. He says that makes me a cougar, ha ha! We have a Mardi Gras ball to go to on Saturday, but we are going to stay home and enjoy ourselves there. It's TWIRP at school, so the kids will be getting ready and we will need to be taking pictures before. The theme is Disney Couples. My youngest is Peter Pan and his date is Tinker Bell. My oldest is Hercules and his date is Meg. I have some costumes to make before Saturday, it should be fun.

Today is a new day, so I'm going to wipe away the overindulgence of yesterday and concentrate on good choices today.

Take Care!
Big Hugs!
