MCP Project 52: Weeks 13 & 14 and a Weight Update

I just realized, as I was about to post Week 14's photo, that I, in fact, had never posted Week 13!!!
I better get updated already!
I haven't missed one single week yet!
Week 13's theme was "Just for Fun" but that week I was busy helping my folks move...which isn't usually something that comes to mind when you hear the word fun!
So, I submitted a photo at the last minute with a subliminal message.
Can you see my headphone message?!?
I was trying to convince myself that running and getting back into shape could be fun!
Did you also notice that I have Ke$ha pulled up?!?
(or as they say on "The Office" K-E-dollar sign-HA!) 
I mean you can't run while listening to something all slow and sappy!
Am I right or am I right!?!
That's what I thought!
And that, folks, is where my update comes in.
I DID in fact start running again.
I DID get a 30 day pass to a gym here.
I HAVE started cuttin the junk from my diet.
I DID weigh myself this a.m.
I AM down to 138.6 from 140something!
Bikini here I come!
Okay maybe not that, but at least some more comfortable fitting clothes!!
I have decided to reward myself at the end of every 7 days of "good behavior".
(But not with food!)

Something more like this!!
I'm thinking that I need a new pair of hottie mchotterson wedges just in time for warmer weather!
Like these,

or these,

or even these just maybe!!
I  just have to keep telling myself this:
Now, on to Week 14.
The theme was Fusion.
Tough one!
I think I have just become very good at "stretching" the theme to make it fit what I have on hand.
I'm thinking that might be considered "missing the point".
I may have hit a photography wall!?!
I've gotta do better than this!

I said something to the effect of:
 "The aftermath of lives fused together for so many years."
Kinda corny eh?!?
This is a pretty accurate description of my life the last couple of weeks though.
But hey, how many people can say that they made a stack of boxes look artistic!?!

Welp, be on the look out for more weight updates, reward announcements, and better photography in the weeks to come!

Oh yea, and THANK GAWSH they came to a budget agreement!
I think there may have been some enjoyment watching all of us Govt. Employees scrambling in fear of not receiving a pay check!
That was diirrrrrtttyyy!

Until Then....

  2. Just found you from comment love day! Loving those wedges. I'll probably be spending too much of my next paycheck on cute spring shoes...I can't resist!

  3. I love that nike saying (even though I am the world's worst runner)

  4. Hi Jess~

    First of all, let me say I am always so impressed by anyone who runs. I am too much of a wimp, so I prefer speed walking, but it's kind of hit or miss! I love that Nike saying! So true! :)

    Thank you also so much for stopping by Beautiful Nest and saying hello! By the way, which Simply Shabby Chic comforter do you have? There are so many pretty ones! The only reason I could narrow it down was that it was the exact color I needed! :)

    I hope you had a great Monday, and that you have a good night!
