Not really what I had in mind...

....but better than a poke in the eye!

{ae filkins}

This week I lost a grand total of 1.5 pounds. So not a huge weight loss which is certainly preferable to weight gain. As you have no doubt guessed by now I am a fly by the seat of my pants girl, I am sure not having a plan is holding me back. I just hate to be accountable. That is my own issue....maybe someday! I did do a pretty good job of not eating junk. Adding in some fruit (the man selling fresh strawberries out of the back of his truck on the side of the road has returned) and cutting way back on soda and junk has been key for me. I know if I added in exercise it may help to up my results. And for the question of the week:

Today share one thing with that you absolutely love about yourself:

This is an easy one for me-my hair! Luckily it is not affected by my weight its always the same! I do get highlights every 6-8 weeks. Recently I find myself wishing I had never started with the highlights, as you can't stop. Those roots get a little excessive and I am run right back to the salon. Its like crack for your hair. :) I should also tell you I have used the same girl since I was 11. She was fresh out of beauty school working at a mall salon and my mom and I went to her a few times and I have just followed her all over the place. When I lived 2 hours away I still drove home when it was time to get a haircut. I can't wait to hear what everyone loves about themselves.

  1. GREAT JOB! 1.5 is 1.5 closer to your goal! Awesome!

    I used to think my hair was my best feature...until I had kids and it completely changed texture! Now I have it short and I agree with you about the CRACK!

    Have a great week!

  2. Yay on the 1.5 pounds, that's great! I actually like my hair too. I used to hate it because it is soooo thick. But then I got to thinking I'd rather have a lot of hair than no hair. See, it's all in how you look at things ;O) Nice job!

  3. Good for you! Keep up the great work! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  4. I think 1.5 lbs is great!! WooHoo for you!! You're much better than a poke in the eye!

  6. Lucky girl!!! My hair is something that I don't love at all!!! Good for you on the 1.5 pounds...awesome!!!
