Less is More!

Thursday, October 16, 2008

Lauren is excited! Excited, excited, excited! Why you might ask am I'm so jubilant and smug looking on a Thursday morning at 10:32 AM? 'Cause I've lost five pounds since last Thursday ^_____^

I joined SparkPeople on Monday but I've been trying to monitor my grub intake since last Thursday and apparently it's paying off.

I feel a renewed diet-related vigor, I'm enjoying meeting other like-minded homies on the forums, am participating in the SparkTeam challenges, have joined a Bay Area Spark group and feel like perhaps this is the little boost I needed to get myself back in gear to watch what I eat before Thanksgiving rolls around and I gorge myself on my best friend Bridgette's step-Mom Sandy's aaaaaaamazing once-a-year corn pudding or plate after plate of my husband Brian's melt-in-yer-flippin'-mouth green bean casserole (grrrr, now I'm all drooly and spitty!).

Anyhow if anyone is interested in a diet buddy please don't hesitate to let me know. While I personally feel that the name of this site might be somewhat obnoxious, the resources, members and helpful tips it offers certainly aren't!

I think that about concludes my over-animated exclamation of the day. Time to eat a geriatric, brown banana and be productive at work!

P.S. Isn't the lighting our coral colored work bathroom amazing? I look like I just chugged a bottle of red wine and got frisky with my blush application!

    Lauren, Would love to be your sparkie diety buddy, you snarky thing! Thanks for making me laugh. Kinda had my spark fizzle on the gobble gobble thing thanks to my complicated personal life. But, one of my friend/co-workers and I are starting a 4 week, 1 hr of cardio a day challenge with each other, so I will definitely be kept accountable by her hard-a$$ sassy self. I may not hit my goal by my original date - yeah, wasn't expecting to be living apart from my true love - but want to look my best for the holidays! So, if you'd like for us to bust each others' chops, give me a holla! Best of luck on watchin that scale go down! You can do it, for real!

    Congrats! That's always amazing when you see things start to pay off! Just kinda makes you want to keep doing what's working, huh? Thanks though, because now I'm craving Thanksgiving food! And yes, the lighting is quite impressive. I was actually wondering if it was intentional, with all the stuff people are able to do editing pics now, lol! Again, congrats, and take care!
