...and enough was enough

guess what today is? lose-the-weight-you-gained-start-over-day. is that a good title for it? not sure. but somewhere between leesburg and richmond this morning, i decided it was time to rededicate. i have sucked since the honeymoon - and some days weren't as bad as others, but thinking about the coconut cream pie and spaghetti from last night, i know the time for change is now. that just felt very political...but what i'm trying to say is i'm starting over. i have set a small challenge for myself - 10 days without eating over points.

points, you ask? yes, points. i love the bugg - i do. but i do better with weight watchers. and i know it works. trying to decide if i should try to sell the bugg or use it to monitor the calories burned during my workouts. any suggestions? as for my challenge, if anyone would like to join me, feel free. it's only 10 days! surely we can do that.

okay, so as promised, here's a few pics of the new place.

i love the red furniture!

mr. bear looks pretty awesome on the new bedding!

these were one of my wedding gifts from ang. super nice, huh?

i'm trying to decide if i have anything else to catch up on. the last month seriously has been a whirlwind. between the wedding and honeymoon, work travel to richmond, packing up our place in cross lanes, moving to maryland - it's just been one thing after another. i'm happy to report that everything is put away, except a few boxes in the den (aka the computer room). my closet took some major organizing...4 hours of work, to be exact.

i took yesterday as a personal day to finish putting stuff away. daniel was excited i got to "play wife" for the day, and actually be home when he got home from work. haha. i explained that i no longer "play wife" as i am the wife, but we had fun with it. in honor of being married a month yesterday, he even left a card hidden in some papers for me. this is what he wrote in it:

he's cute. :)

okay, i guess i have to get back to work. i'm pleased with my food choices so far - and have a plan for dinner. 10 days. i can do that. i want this...


  1. By not going over points, do you mean not going over the daily points? or not going over the daily + flex points? If it's daily + flex I'm all in! ;) Love the new place & the fact that you're only 45mins away (except for this week and next week!

  2. Ten days is nothing, you're going to kick that ten days' ass!

  3. the new place looks really nice! i love the red furniture too!

  4. to clarify - it's daily + flex!

  5. You're the first person I've read who had the same issue with the Bodybugg that I do. I hate their tracker, and I love WW points system.
    It is a dilemma for sure.

  6. I love the bedding! Mr Bear goes very well! Look at D being all sappy. Seriously it's cute though. So glad the wall thing matched the living room! Hated the thought of it having to go back. Your new place looks so much like a home! Can't wait to see it in person!

  7. Hi! i would be totally interested in possibly buying your body bugg if you decide to get rid of it!!! good luck with WW!
