This has to be a proud moment for you. Oh and that damn rain. If I could blame it on the rain I would, but my yard is a MESS!!!

I can only fit in my big boy britches. "Hanging around" Tori has honed my blaming skills. I've learned from her that it's much easier to blame others that it is to accept responsibility. She's probably one of those kids that were always that bad influence that my parents always warned me of. Thanks for the link, maybe I can see if I can blame that idiot... oh wait.

Damn I'm getting good at this blame game!

For real though, Tori ("Big T" as we call her in the hood) will be making our goals, if she ever decides to get around to it. I'm ready to rock it, she's going down like a PUNK!

Mern,

the 80/20 rule is eat healthy 80% of the time and allow yourself something you want etc 20% of the time. You still stay within your calorie limit but I find it helps in social situations or when my hormones are having a temper tantrum!

A random and unrelated 80/20 fact: apparently we wear 20% of our wardrobes 80% of the time.

edinburghgirl - another 80/20 rule we throw around in my department (where writing research journal articles for publication is the thing to do) is that it takes 20% of the time to do 80% of the work, and then you'll spend the rest of the 80% of the time doing the last 20% of the work to get the paper ready for publication... it's pretty much true.

April, how do you feel about your son going into the Navy?

Edinburghgirl, thanks for explaining the 80/20 rule on the food. I can relate to the 80/20 wardrobe fact. I have certain clothes that if they're clean, they're on my body. LOL

Tracey, I know it's really annoying that you don't lose as quickly as your sister. I feel the same way about how quickly most men can lose weight while we women struggle to lose just a pound. Easier said than done, but we must try to not compare ourselves with others. Like my doc says, "You don't have to be perfect, just better than you used to be." That pound lighter IS better than you used to be. Big hug to ya!

Joanna, I can see that 80/20 rule on articles to be published, too.

Had a good day on food, water, and exercise. I should have a nice report tomorrow.

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous Monday. I actually had a splendiferous Monday. Not a word, don't care at all. I woke up early this morning and snuggled with the baby for a while (I should stop saying baby, she's almost 18 months old.), then we got up and had breakfast. I went to my final interview and was HIRED for the bestest job ever. Then I came home and cardio and strength trained my butt off, watched some Criminal Minds (my favorite) and then went to my old horrible job and put in my 2 week notice. It has been a simply lovely day, but also exhausting and I am so ready for bedtime. Here are my #'s for today.

1) Stay within calorie limits. Yes, 618.
2) Get 3 workouts done. M-Yes.
3) Keep carbs @or under 33%. 35% :/
4) Get to bed by 10:30. On my way now.

Other:
1) Finish cleaning out and scrubbing house. I definitely made some progress today.
2) Stick with budget, and STOP OVERSPENDING! I went a whole day without buying anything I don't need! GO ME!

Side note, I drank 5 bottles of water today. Maybe I just needed to drop the pressure of having it as a goal?

April, your new ink is lovely. I cannot wait to get my next one and post pictures. Maybe I missed it, what are the numbers for?

Tracey, one pound is awesome. You are lighter today than you were yesterday, focus on the positive!

Mern, happy to have to back, glad to hear you had fun on your trip!

Tori and Mike, you two crack me up!

Well, its my bedtime, goodnight everyone! See ya tomorrow!
