It's been awhile. A lot has gone down since March.
- A new position at work
- Lolly turned 16 which included two birthday parties
- Lolly had her Confirmation at church
- I lost 10-12lbs, depending on the day

Do you have one of those poser friends on facebook? Well I do. You know the ones that make you want to roll your eyes.
Note to self - buy flowers for the wife today. Just because...
Maybe it's just me, maybe I am just hyper critical. But is this really about doing something nice for your wife or is about seeing how many likes and comments you can get about how wonderful you are?

Pretty soon I am going to have more followers on Pinterest than I do here on my blog. Funny thing is I haven't pinned one stinkin thing. Just one look at Pinterest and I knew it was a problem. The time suckage that wonderful could cause is frightening.

Yestersday we had to say goodbye to Lolly's cat Cupcake. She had stopped eating. Seriously, I am not meant for pet ownership. Not to be morbid but we have another cat and two dogs. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph I can't stomach the idea having to be in that position three more times...I am off to have a good cry.

To the lady on ABC Sunday morning talking politics I think I know who are but you look nothing like yourself: If you are over 40, your forehead should move when you talk. I am not against a little botox or what have you. But absolutely no movement is so obvious. As obvious the black turtleneck your wearing to hide your neck.

I've been sticking to a diet of protein and veggies and I am hungry ALL the time. Seriously, all the time. Like go to bed hungry. But here are three things I know
- Being 4'11 and 3/4 it takes a lot of calorie restriction to get the scale to move
- While I've been non-stop hungry, I haven't lacked any energy.
- There are plenty of people who go to bed hungry not of their on choosing
It's that last point that motivates me the most. To get control, stop wasting money on food and treats that aren't needed, and to use that extra money toward food to donate to the food pantry.

Normally, I set a goal in every area of my life but this year I decided to focus on one and only one goal...lose 20lbs. I know, how overdone. But so needed.
You see on Nov 12, 2011, the day before I turned 45 I ate my last bit of sugar in the form of cookies, cakes, ice cream, candy, pies, frozen yogurt, etc. It was a cookie sandwich with sprinkles to be exact. I had decided that I wanted to challenge myself, to do something big in my 45th year. I would give up sugar for one year. Wonderful, lovely, delicious sugar.
I made it through the holidays without so much as a Christmas cookie, not even a candy cane. I also haven't lost one stinkin pound. I feel a lot better but I don't look a lot better. I wasn't expecting to lose a ton of weight but a few pounds, sure. I mean I eliminated cookies, candy, frozen yougurt, etc from my diet. Not seeing a difference in my weight, tells me that's there's a lot of other work that needs to go into cleaning up my eating in order to get into shape.
Hopefully it won't take all year to meet the goal. I do know I am going to have to do a lot better in the eating and exercising department than I have done for the first three days of 2012.

I am pretty sure returning to work tomorrow after having been off since the 21st of Dec. will be an adjustment. I am positive trading my wardrobe of pajama bottoms for a suit will be down right painful. If only I had a suit made out of flannel...
