So my ticker says that my BMI is 37. At my gym they have a tool there that calculates muscle mas and BMI and some other stuff. It's not just based off weight and height. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my BMI according to there little machine was 34! I had started out at around 44.Freaking fabulous! That was last week but every time I went to type up a post I always was thinking about something else.

It's BYOC. A couple of question we answer in the effort to get to know each other better. Thank Draz :)

1. How much makeup do you wear daily, how long does it take you and are you loyal to certain brands?
I'm not really loyal to any brands except for my powder and I couldn't even tell you the name off the top of my head. It's one of the mineral ones. I used to put makeup on every morning. Powder,liquid liner, mascara and blush. Now I don't put on any unless I am feeling in a fancy mood. My skin and confidence has gotten a ton better as I have lost weight so I am more comfortable with myself without makeup now. I do put it on when we go out most of the time though.

2. Repeat question: I’m going to pick a person not knowing your relationship with them (or even if there is one) and you try to describe this person in 5 words/short sentences.

Your oldest paternal auntUmmm
weight issues

3. Tell me about your first real kiss and how old you were.
Like I said for the first one...I don't remember. But I remember my first kiss with my hubby. It was very sweet. We had been walking around the mall and talking for a couple of hours and we were sitting waiting for a movie and I laid down and put my head in his lap. We were talking about take risks and chances and he bent down and kissed me. Very sweet! It does not feel like that was almost 7 years ago!

4. If I gave you $1000.00 and told you that you had to give it to a charity – which charity would you choose and why?
I would give it to the wounded warrior project.  It's a program that is very near and dear to my heart and is doing great things for men and women in uniform.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.
Blog land: It's awesome to be following all the new baby bandsters and see how well they are doing. There is a lot of count down till BOOBs going on and I love seeing who all is featured on the BOOBs blog. by the way whats everyone wearing to dress up night?

Real Life: Work, Working out, Running, School, hubby.... It's getting to be a busy life these days. My hubby told me last night that he can't wait till I step on the scale because it looks like I have lost weight! How exciting is that! I started the C25K (couch to 5k) program. I started with week 2 and modified it a bit. Instead of doing 20mins I did 30mins. For all the runners out there you should get the iMapMyRUN app for apple products. If you run with it for music it will track you run distance and time. It will also show your route. You can also friend me :) This running stuff is very empowering! I love how I feel when I'm done.
This weekend is going to be filled with crocheting, coking and cleaning with a good amount of down time. It's supposed to rain tomorrow here but it will be a nice day to just do what needs to be done around the house. I am making a crocheted elephant animal. I will get a picture up when it's done. I hope it turns out as cute as the one in the picture is.

Have a good weekend everyone! and TGIF!!!!


  1. I'm pretty sure you meant 'cooking' instead of 'coking and cleaning', right? LOL, otherwise that'd be hilarious. "Don't worry about me, i'm just going to take a line and vacuum. Normal, everyday." *giggle*

    Yeah! for the running! I can't wait to hear all about your progress!!

  2. A hot dress, of course! I might take a picture of it later, after I get my new swimsuit and can take a pic of that, too. :)
