Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

I'm Back!!

Good evening folks!

Long time no that is! I took a little longer time off than I anticipated. We did indeed go on a trip to South Dakota July 7th for about a week and we all had a blast. And just to prove it, I have a few pictures front of the corn palace and on top of a giant jackalope at Wall Drug. Although, I just realized I should also post the Mt. Rushmore shots too.

When we got back from the trip, the computer was still not hooking up to the Internet and I was unpacking and in the middle of a really good book.

Has anyone read any of the Jack Reacher novels written by Lee Child? My parents got me into them. Well, I've since read five of his books.

Oh, and I also have been doing a lot of cooking from scratch. Remember when I said I was trying to cook meals for the entire family with just what I had in the house? Well, that went on for another two weeks after I got back from the trip. Then I went shopping and have been baking my own bread, making foods from scratch like a lot of soups. Eventually I'll post pictures of all that. We even made home-made whole wheat noodles for chicken noodle soup. Yum, yum!

So, by the time I finally got around to calling our phone company to get the Internet working...that was last Friday. A tech came and all it was...was a cord somehow got unplugged. Oh, we also had this Malware virus embedded in our computer that was impersonating a malwar program to try to get us to download it. A computer friend came to visit us and got it "un-imbedded". now it's like we have a whole new computer. Almost. Ha, Ha!!

In the meantime, remember my sister-in-law who was running all these races last winter while pregnant? Well, she had their son a few weeks ago and everyone is doing great! I haven't asked her yet when she's doing her next race. I'll wait a bit.

I'll be 27 weeks tomorrow on Tuesday. That means I'm entering my last tri-mester and will have 13 weeks left before the baby is due. I'm getting big. I'm sure you will all want to see a picture while I don't want you to. Ha! Ha!!

I'm feeling the need to go on a diet or at the very least eat less sugar-y stuff. I also took about three weeks off at the gym and started back last week for two days. This week I really need to get in three to five days.

So, that's my short little update. I do have a little surprise for you all that I have been sitting on for a long time...that I am waiting to spring on you all. Maybe I will when the time is right in a few weeks.

In the mean time, I need to do some catch up on everyone!

I hope you are all having a great summer!
