Trifecta! I got an award yesterday! :)

Thanks to Julia at for presenting me with this award! Julia has been inspiring when it comes to Weight Watchers and she's a kick ass runner. My goal is to run a half marathon with her someday.

The rules: pass the award on to 7 bloggers and write 7 things about myself that you did not know!

1.You don't know....that I can bend my pinky all the way to the back of my hand.
2.You don't know...that I think bagels taste better bread sliced and pizza tastes better cut in squares.
3.You don't know....I get turned on when someone knows the difference between the words "too", "to", and "two"; "they're", "there", and "their"; and "your" and "you're".
4.You don't know...that I love watermelon fruit, but hate it as a candy.
5.You don't know...I have eight tattoos.
6.You don't know...I'm a total girlie-girl, but I will kick your ass on a dirt bike.
7.You don't know that...I don't sweat, I rain.

I would like to give a shout out to seven of my favorite bloggers!

So besides the cool blogging award, I also had a SV and a NSV! Those combined is what give me a trifecta folks.

So Friday is weigh in day as you know, and I'm happy to report that I'm down another 1.8! 186.6. I'm back to where I started in April and am a little upset with myself for taking a dump on my motivation for a few weeks. I hate that its taken me almost a month to lose four pounds, but I can put it back on hitting the McDonald's drive thru.

Today was horribly humid in Iowa. I planned on getting up this morning to do my run, but when I woke up it was pouring, thunder, and lightning out. I pulled my sleep mask back down and decided to snooze a little more. I was going go to the gym after work but decided I was too lazy, so I went home and took a nap. After I woke up, I decided to pick up my doggy pal Eddie and hit the streets. He likes to go fast the first two miles, but then he drags ass. I guess we will help each other get into shape ;)

Day: 4
Weather: High 80s, suuuuuuuuuuper humid
Calories burned: 715
Calories till goal: 7756


  1. Congrats girl!! I'm glad you're refocused. I hate watermelon candy too. But the fruit - Delicious! And #3, don't get me started =]

  2. Totally know what you mean about the struggling to lose 4 pounds and putting it back on just with a trip through the drive thru! Ugh!

    But congrats on your good work and getting back on the wagon! =)
