Yearning for… MYSELF.

Cause I’m not sure who this fat chick is!

Thank you ladies for your kind words!  I don’t feel gorgeous for most days, but I know what my best assets are, and my eyes are one of them!  So, thank you for noticing!  😀  I tried to take a couple of new pics yesterday even though I’m only about 5lbs. thinner than the last pic posted, but I couldn’t get the angle right.  I don’t take very good self pics.  I usually have to have someone take one of me.  I guess I will have to ask the hubby to take one the next time he has some free time.  I know he won’t mind that AT ALL!  In case you were wondering, that handsome guy I’m walking down the aisle with in the wedding photo is my hubby.  See why he frustrates me with wanting to lose weight at times?  He has gained since then, though.  He’s not as thin now, but he’s sure getting there!  And in that same pic, I don’t know if you can click on it to make it bigger, but you can see my hair is red.  It had been red for YEARS and then just a month or so ago… maybe a bit more…. I decided it was time for a change and went back to my more natural color.  Even with my pale skin, my hair is quite dark!  But I wore that dark red color for…. I want to say at least 2yrs.  That’s about the longest I’ve stayed any one color.  Blonde is the shortest– I was only blonde for a few weeks.  The color washes me out and just doesn’t look good on me.  I think it’s because every stylist I go to wants to do a bronzy caramel and I need more of an ash or white blonde.  I need more cool jewel tones and not warm tones.  The warm stuff just brings out the yellow in my skin.  BLEH.  So, you guys were right for picturing me with red hair!  😀  And thanks for thinking my kiddos are cute.  They can be cute and sweet… but they can also be a pain!  LOL  My hair is red in that pic, too, but it’s hard to see because my hair is pulled back.  Eh.  It was Disney and probably 90+ degrees!

Ok, now on to business.  Today’s weight is 192.5.  Probably from the Chinese last night and not much water yesterday.  It was my cheat day, but all I had that was probably high cal was birthday cake.  Even the Chinese was made here and was low on cals.  I was too cheap to order real take-out.  LOL  So, I just threw some noodles in the micro from Annie Chun’s and tada!  It was nummy!  And believe it or not, very filling.  So, I’d bet the 192.5 is from water retention.  So, no biggie.  I don’t have much planned for today.  I’ve already had breakfast, picked up, vacuumed all of upstairs and mopped all of upstairs.  Probably fold a couple of baskets of laundry, throw in one or two, and pick up some downstairs in the play room.  Hubby wants to run a couple of errands so we’ll do that and try to get some things posted up for sale.  Busy busy.  I’m excited about dinner… stead and asparagus.  YUM!  OK, ladies.  Today is a shorter one?  Medium one?  Whatever!  I’m going to go now and get off the pute!  I’ve gotten a lot done so I want to read for a bit and then go shower.  Have a good week everyone!
