Much Needed Down Time...

This weekend has been a much needed break....James and Ian are in Nashville, TN for the State Baseball tournament(they are on their way home now)....so it is just me and the kids....We got home from Florida on Tuesday night, and I had to work Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday night...had a photography appointment today, and now I am just sitting here.....doing nothing...which has been good...I am getting ready for bed, but thought I would post a little something....=) because I just feel the "need" ;)


After my photo session today, I took Macey and Cade to the movies...to see Wall-e....and it was such a cute movie...Cade and Macey both really enjoyed it....We got popcorn (the first time I have had it, since I started my diet...btw...I have lost 22 lbs. now Yippee!) and just had a good time "being together". We got into the theater 30 minutes before the movie started and believe me, we engaged in some serious conversation during this time frame.....After the movie, I went to see my friend, Natalie (the girl who does my nails) and got myself a pedicure...Macey and Cade sat there and waited for me, and they were very good...I was a proud mom...We came home after that...changed into our pj's...and did nothing...Christy, my good friend, was at home by herself, and I invited her over, and we just sat and watched Disney channel with Macey and Cade, drank coffee (with Coconut Creamer) and talked....Good times...I don't know if Christy and I have EVER gotten together like that by ourselves...but it was nice...Love you girl!!! My weekend may sound boring...but it definitely was what I needed....Going non stop has just about caught up with me....plus the lack of sleep from working nights...So, now, I am going to wrap this post up...and I am hitting the sack...Hope everyone has a great weekend....After getting some much needed rest, I am sure mine is going to be much better.....Good night....

22 pounds? Are you kidding? That is great! Exactly what are you eating (or not eating)? I need to lose 22 lbs of my own!

Hey Bethanne...=) I wish I could just say ...."this has been the easiest way I have ever lost way...." blah blah blah....But no...I jump started my weight loss by doing Nutrisystem...which worked great for me...I did it for one month...Now, I am counting calories (1200 or less a day) and low carbs(no bread, ect.) and high protein....(as I sit here eating a protein bar b4 church) and then yes, the dreaded exercise...So, there you go...Sorry it wasn't anything more exciting...but it is working...and I am glad...I still have about 25 more to lose...thanks for the positive comment...Made me smile...Have a wonderful Sunday

Those type of weekends are always needed sometimes! Congrats on losing the weight. I need to do a lot of that myself.

Great job on the weight loss...keep it up.

GIRL THAT IS AWESOME!!!! I was about to comment and ask how you are doing it but Bethanne beat me to it! You look so good! Wade and I just started last week walking and we are going to throw some sit ups in this week. We have 3 months till our cruise and I want to get off atleast 20 pounds. Over what period of time did it take to drop the 22? That is wonderful!!! You go!!!

As you know, I am all about the pats on the back when someone loses weight... YAY! I screamed that for you. Did you hear it? I'm so glad for you. I have gotten completely sidetracked from the weight loss. I'm thinking of doing the Y once school starts though. But I'm so cheap, I'll probably just stick to my DVDs and treadmill.

OMG Cassie...You have always looked so thin! I couldn't imagine you loosing 22, on top of 25 more...That's Terrific! I commend you on doing it the right way! Too many people are having Gstric Bypass today...to "loose" it so quickly..Congrat's! That's awesome!
