Another day, another week… another week with no writing and I realize that I need prompts. At the beginning I wrote a lot because I had a lot to say, the April Blog Challenge was really helpful and forced me to write, then I thought FMS’s Photo a Day challenge could serve the same purpose but it really didn’t. The pictures were great though. Head to my instagram and check them out or simply search #fmsphotoaday on instagram and enjoy the creative pictures that all the participants did. It was fun… but it really didn’t help me write and I want to write. I have things to share but I’m like having some sort of writer’s block or something that has me a little stuck.
Anyway… still stuck in the low 170s and doesn’t seem like I made it out this week… again… I am really mad. I exercised every day this week totalling over 10 hours of exercise including running (yes! I started my couch-to-5K program), yoga, weights, and of course zumba. I ate really well this week too. My cheats were low-sodium popcorn and dark chocolate (not together, at the same time, or the same day). I was really good and yet the scale will not move. It essentially hasn’t moved in two months… TWO F#@%ING MONTHS!!!! What does a girl have to do to lose weight around here? Really?
On better news, it was my birthday last friday and I had fun hearing from lots of friends and family. I had a fun and healthy celebratory lunch and upgraded my phone to Apple’s iPhone 5c in white; I can’t wait for it to arrive. I also took a class on pastels on which I failed miserably (don’t believe me? check it out) but I had a lot of fun and will try it out again… I will!
Well… that’s it! I am going to make an effort and write more often and thank you to those who’ve stuck with me.
