I am a sometimes-writer, everyday mama, creative failure and experimental cook. I am interested in living a beautiful life, spending time with my family and making things that I can feel proud of. When I'm by myself I'm usually outside. Don't bother calling because chances are that I didn't bring my cell phone because I couldn't find it. If you see me walking, it's because I lost my keys and if you see me with only one child... I'm probably in big trouble.

Weight Update- Week 12

We had our bbq last night.

I'llbedamnded if I didn't drink my own weight in homemade sangria!

I burned the burgers and then didn't put more on (a decision made post-sangria-consumption) and I'm sort of horrifyingly embarrassed about it today, but otherwise I will deem the day a success.

I ate pretty well, but my friend Amber is the most amazing cook and brought these little vegan spring rolls and a corn/black bean/avocado salad that were out of this world and I might have overdone a little bit.  I ended up dabbling here and there and picking at a bunch of different things... but I'm not feeling guilty and not stressing it.

I don't know if I lost any weight this week.  I suspect that I lost a pound or two.  I am pretty bloated from all of the corn and beans that are sitting like a rock in my belly. hahha.  Not to mention all of the sangria that I drank!  The scale told me that I weigh exactly what I have weighed for the past two weeks, which means 31 lbs in 12 weeks.  Like I said previously, I was getting really obsessive about my weight loss and it was seriously effecting the way I felt about myself.  So, I have been really working on health, instead of weight loss.  I want to be able to maintain as well as lose.

I will check in again on the scale in a few days and let you know if the number significantly changes.

A weigh in post bbq is not the smartest thing to do :)  But, at least the number didn't climb!

Today we are off for an adventure!
