Life Lately

Y’all will be happy to know that ya girl finally got a new computer. *insert praise hands*

I was graciously gifted a computer by my parents in April of 2011 & that bad boy served me very well, but it was time for an upgrade. I didn’t even know a windows computer could last that long, but this one did…


Look at me — I am a big girl now 😉 feeling like a grownup with my new MacBook. Let me tell you, it was not easy dropping so much money on one piece of technology. However, if this one lasts as long as my last computer — I will be a happy girl & will have gotten my money’s worth out of it. (Someone tell me it will last me that long) I did at least get an educator’s discount & some Beats. Merry Christmas, Dad– you are getting some Beats.

So now that I have a new computer, I really have no excuse not to blog. I was definitely using that as a noble obstacle. By the way, if you haven’t read the book Finish by Jon Acuff, I highly recommend it. It is targeted toward perfectionists, but even if you don’t consider yourself one, I would still read it.

Weight loss wise, I am feeling great. I have committed to losing 10 pounds by December. As of last Friday, I have 8 left to lose. I will be honest with you, I definitely overate on Saturday. I ate what I had planned, but boy did I ignore my hunger signals. Other than that, I have had a really great week. I would rate myself 10/10 Sunday-yesterday. I am making myself super proud. Whether that shows up on the scale this week or not, I know that I am doing what it takes to lose weight. I had 2 pretty big losses in a row, so this week could be a week that I just maintain. Would I like to lose every week? Sure! However, that is not how weight loss works. The scale is just one way to measure how I am changing my life– not the only way.

I have a wonderful accountability group & we communicate on the app MarcoPolo. It is so fun! Do any of y’all use that??? Game changer.

One of my very best friends had a baby last Friday which is such a blessing. We have been waiting a long time to meet this little angel.


Auntie A + LC = BFFs. I can’t wait to watch this little girl grow up. She will probably be taller than me when she is 10 years old.

There is just a little update on my life. What would y’all like to know more about? What I am eating? Exercise? Let me know. I will take any ideas I can.

See y’all later!
