Someone found my blog through a search engine while looking for “soccer mom sex”. Hmmm. I’ve been key word and phrase searching my blog and I cannot figure out which entry they went to! I do mention soccer moms a few times; I mean really, I live in the ‘burbs! But Soccer Mom Sex! I rarely refer to sex in this blog let alone so overtly!
What a crazy busy week we had last week and it just continues on into this week! Sometimes I plan for a meal and then something comes up and we don’t eat it for one reason or another. This week I’m trying really hard to stick to the menu again. I’ll add links and pictures later!
Monday – Dinner @ a friend’s house.
Tuesday – Taco Night.Yes, almost every week we have taco’s in some form and pizza.
Wednesday – Whole Chicken in the Crock Pot with Asparagus and Corn Bread and Salad.
Thursday – Leftovers.
Friday – Camping food
Saturday – Chicken foil dinner or chicken on the grill (weather permitting) with veggie kabobs.
Sunday – Dinner @ church.

Today was super fun! My uncle called and said they were in the Midwest for the weekend for my cousin’s graduation from Boot Camp. Jay and I jumped in the car and drove two hours to meet up with them. It was so great to see some familiar faces and hear all about Boot Camp. God bless all of you who do it, I couldn’t!
We were going to meet up with them at a Bob Evan’s restaurant but thankfully when we all got there, it was closed because it was a brand new restaurant getting ready to open this month! Why in the world are there brand new restaurants opening up? I thought we were in the middle of an economic crisis? I thought people weren’t eating out as much?
Have you heard as many reports as I have that people are returning to the kitchen table for meals?
Instead of posting a photo of a “reflection” I’m posting a photo that caused me to “reflect”. When I was a child, my family would go on a vacation to Mexico two or three times a year. While we were there, we would endulge in fresh handmade flour tortillas. The other day I made my own. Yum.

So here is my weekly weigh in. I’m trying to have some self control and not celebrate my triumphs and mourn my setbacks as they come along, so I’m limiting myself to taking my official weight once a week. Today would be the day. Currently I am minus 8 pounds. It’s taking a lot longer than I had hoped. I guess I am safely losing weight, about one and a half to two pounds each week but I’d much rather lose it all at once.
I do see benefits to losing my 60+ pounds slowly: 1. I won’t put it back on right away. 2. I recognize the painful and loooong process, giving me more appreciation for how hard it is. Seriously though, I’m pretty sure I get it now, it takes forever. Lesson learned. Now, can it just drop off? I don’t have much of a chance of losing the 30 that I needed to lose by May 1st but I’ll more than halfway if I can just keep on this rate. My second goal was another 30 (for a total of 60) by the end of August. Surely I can dump those 30 pounds between May and August but I just need to get those other 15 or so I anticipate remaining.
Some people try to lose weight for bathing suit season; I’m trying for wedding season!
