Baby Face

My kids, my parent, and I went to a health fair today at the Middle School. It was mostly uneventful, but I think the kids had fun. They were giving paper bags with handles to everyone, so we had somewhere to store all of the handouts and such. Lots of food guide pyramids, a few drawings, some pencils, apples and oranges at one table, water and granola bars at the Costco table, and some guy at a jump rope table.

Jump rope - yep. Can't remember the name - Jump for Life, or something like that. Anyway, he had good handouts at his table, so we went to chat with him a while. My mom asked him about what his booth was all about, and he said jump ropes. He asked her about jumping rope, and she said "Well, I can't jump, because then I'd pee". I thought the poor little guy was gonna die of embarassment. I guess no 55 year old women have ever explained to him the facts of life and bladder control. As we age (and have kids), the bladder control goes out the window. Hehehehe. I got a good chuckle out of the whole exchange :)

So do you guys do Amish Friendship Bread? It's AWESOME, eh? My friend Maren gave me a starter bag a while back, and we made it with vanilla pudding. It was pretty tasty. She made hers with pistashio pudding and pistashio nuts. AND chocolate chips. It was FABULOUS!!! So, when I made my 2nd batch today, we used walnuts, chocolate pudding (fat free, casue it was all we had), applesauce (instead of oil), and a WHOLE bag of milk chocolate chips. Yep, definitely not on the diet.

So I'm pledging to you all know, that I PROMISE I won't eat another dessert until Thanksgiving. There. It's out there for everyone to see, and I'm gonna be good. I didn't diet so long to put back on the lbs. Since I officially got done dieting a few weeks ago, I've been adding a bit of junk food back in, and I think I've added a "bit" too much :)

So, who's with me? No sweets until Thanksgiving??? Come on, it's only 12 days. Then, we can all eat a big slice of Pumpkin Pie with cool-whip on Turkey day. I think it'll be FUN!!! But only if you all do it with me - hehehe.


I had an even better though! How about this. Whoever meets my goal (LOL, you like that, MY goal) of having NO sweets till Thanksgiving day, gets a 50% off coupon from my store. What do ya think? Is that worth it? So it's gotta be on the honor system. Email me after Thanksgiving, and let me know if you did it or not. And I'll send you off the coupon code. I know you all can do it :)

And if you're super skinny, and don't need to go without sweets, you still should, just so you know what use heavier/used to be heavier girls have to go through - LMBO! So, if you wanna play, just post here! Hey, we have to have SOME accountability, right?


OK, enough about that. Here's your freebie for the day. Just so you know, I designed this for you at 12:30am. Yeah, I was a bit behind on stuff. I got to talk to my hubby for HOURS and HOURS last night. He was on yahoo messenger, and so was I (I'm elegantwordart, btw). There's a video part, so he got to see the kids and I. We didn't have sound, and he didn't have a camera, but still, he got to see us. I think that really helped him out, to see us. Anyway, I just got off the phone/computer with him, and now I'm doing my post, then I'm going to bed. I'm SLEEPY!!!

So, here's the WordArt. I can't remember if this was a request or not. Let me go check real fast :) Yep, it's from Beckie. Hope you like it, girl! Click on the image below to go to my 4shared account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work. :)

I just started P90X with my daughter (I think she is trying to kill me) lol so no sweets is already on my list. No point in working my rear off just to feed it sweets, sort of defeats the purpose! lol

Oh my, I need to get in on giving up sweets! I will surely go through withdrawls for a few days since I've been helping myself to halloween candy.

Thanks for the great wordart!

Thanks! :)
I do not think I can do NO sweets. I'm an actual addict - I'm sure of it. I will try to slow down, though, because I know I need to. I did do NO SWEETS for a month earlier this year, and I thought I'd rather die! Good luck to you, and everyone else, though. I know how hard it is, and I am soooooo proud of you and impressed with your dedication to lose weight. You're amazing. Thanks for being an inspiration - even though I'm not going to jump on the bandwagon yet.

Good challenge!

I've been doing WW so no sweets is very possible for me since I've not had any since June (and dang I've had some cake really tempt me!)

Congrats to you for meeting your goal! Keep it up!
