How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Busy Beeeeee

Goodness, I feel like I've been gone for ages!

Last Friday and Saturday I went with my BFF to a knitting workshop to learn how to do a knitting technique called Entrelac. It was a lot of fun and I indeed did learn how to do Entrelac ;)  I also - and my knitting b0obs will appreciate this - learned how to knit/purl in both directions (i.e. no turning your work!). Man is that convenient!

Sunday, James and I went up to work and moved his computer and stuff to his new cube for him to start his new position on Monday. That was cool, there aren't a lot of people at our office on Sunday's so it sort of felt like being at school during the summer, ha! Then we went to yoga and back home to chill. The Walking Dead started back up with an amazing episode, if you like zombies you should check it out on AMC.

Yesterday I had work and then yoga. It was a great class! I have officially moved up to the intermediate level and am really enjoying it. And I'm not scared of the all levels classes anymore. I'm still getting acclimated to the heat in that room, but otherwise I feel like it is a good challenge when I want to kick it up a notch (BAM!).

Today was more work - which is a whole other drama situation I don't want to think about right now - and was supposed to be more yoga. But James and I were just exhausted. We intended to go, so after work we went to PetSmart to get some kitty food and then to eat some dinner at Baker Brothers (I had a wonderful Texas Cobb salad, yum) and then to Target to pick up a few things. We still had about an hour before class started so we went over to the VW dealership that is nearby to see about test driving one of the new Beetles. I've been thinking about getting one ever since they announced. I have a 2005 New Beetle right now and I love it, but the new 2012's have the option for a lot more bells and whistles that I really want. Anyhoo, after that we decided we were tuckered out and just went home.

So here I sit, getting caught up on reading and commenting on blogs from the past 5 days and then posting to all you wonderful peeps out there in blogland! I'm probably going to hit the hay early-ish tonight ... y'all sleep tight!


  1. I've always wanted a new beetle! I never did get one, and now I am married to a Ford retiree, so I am now only aloud to drive Fords. But thats okay, next year I am getting a new Edge!

  2. I think the new beetle looks fab!! Like a porshe!

  3. Oh and I love zombies! I don't want to marry em or anything!!

  4. It's getting cooler around here these days which means one thing - knitting time!! I've been getting all my things together to begin a few simple projects - I am sooo excited to begin!

  5. Oh em gee, JEALOUS! I've been wanting a Beetle since I was a little girl (haha, like 5!). I hope you get one, then I can live vicariously.

    Glad you had fun at your workshop, I need some new mittens. ;) hehe

  6. Your knitting workshop sounds fun. I totally want you to make me something now.

    I'm so excited for James starting his new position.

    Congrats on moving up in your Yoga level. I'm so proud of you.

  7. Oooooh, zombies and knitting. A girl after my own heart! I've always wanted to try entrelac, but it looks soooo intimidating.
