Well, the whole help us choose a new name challenge was a bust. Although, since Lissa was the only person to submit suggestions, she is going to get a fun surprise (send me your address missy). I did finally settle on "What were we thinking?" It seems that I am always saying or thinking that to myself, so it fit.

This has been a strange week. I have felt like crap and have had a sore throat. I am really hoping that it is not strep. James has been in Colorado all week and his parents are coming this weekend. I am still trying to come to grips with the fact that I have a 14 year-old. Can I really be that old already? He will be driving in less than TWO years. They grow up so fast. I realized the other day that I have not taken a picture in almost a month. Which may not seem like much to most, but when you figure that I usually take between 300-500 pictures a month it is a big deal. My goal is to get out of that funk this weekend. Hopefully we don't get the snow that is predicted.

I have not posted on my weight-loss the last two weeks in a row. I don't know why. I am up 0.8 pounds, which is nothing. I am not discouraged at all. I have been shredding and can feel muscles that I knew only to exist from anatomy class. I am sore, sore, sore. Oh, and my boobs are shrinking! That can't be fair?! Now, if I can only get my baby belly to shrink too.

We Need a New Name!

Dear blog readers (yes, all 3 of you), I am looking to rename my blog. I want something fun and creative and since I am neither of those, I am asking for your help.

I am going to turn this into a contest with way cool prizes. Ok so maybe not that cool, but it will be fun anyways. Leave me a comment with your ideas by Sunday, April 12. My family and I will choose the top 3. I will then leave it up to you to vote on your favorite. The person with the winning submission will get an all expense paid trip...wait, what?!? I am not that generous. How about a bag of my favorite Easter candy (if you live within the lower 48 states, if not you are SOL)?

Week 2

Today is weigh-in Wednesday and I have to say that I think this whole weight-loss and work-out thing is for the birds. It is so much easier being fat. I can eat what I want and drink what I want and lay around on the couch if I want. Oh, and I don't have Jillian screaming at me through the T.V. and my whole body doesn't hurt when I wake up. I did lose 3 pounds this week and I went to the doctor on Monday and I am down 20 pounds since I was there in August. I guess I am on the right track. Good luck to all of those who are on this same journey!

Today is the first weigh-in for the shrink into summer challenge over at the Sisterhood. It was a really rough weekend around here and things are on the mend. I have not worked out since Friday. I have a 0.5 pound loss and I will take it because a loss is a loss, right? I am also hoping to win a copy of Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred.
