Bribe yourself!

A few posts ago I wrote about my millionth challenge to weigh 129.  I commented about purchasing a reward from one of my favorite clothing establishments.  Well, I have to say, I found my reward!  I was going to wait and buy something after I actually reached my goal, but I came across a pair of shoes I’ve been EYEING for quite some time and I just had to snatch them up!!!  I have to say though that this might be a better reward system.  I propped them up in my bedroom and I won’t wear them until I read 129 on the scale!  I’m silly, I know.  It is FUN? for me, really!  I really want to wear them on Sunday so we’ll see if I can conjure up a really good 3 day diet!!  Here they are:

The only problem is of course finding something to wear them with!!  I’ll just have to purchase something more, like this:

My husband is not liking where this is going.  I’m KIDDING!!  I already have a cute dress in my closet that will go perfectly with my hot pink shoes!!  I just don’t know if I’ll be able to wear them THIS Sunday!

O.K.  Here is a super healthy recipe I saw on Facebook posted by one of my friends.  It’s a Rachael Ray recipe.  I’ve never really made anything of hers, but this LOOKED so good I think I’ll be making it tonight.  Here is a yummy pic.

It’s called Grilled Buffalo Chicken Salad.  You can click HERE to get the recipe!  And for dessert, I saw this the other day that looked so fun to try!

Edible hot chocolate mugs!!  WOW!  It doesn’t get any better than that.  Click HERE for the recipe!!  I always have plenty of high ambitions to make NEW recipes, I just need to set aside the time now!!  So happy it’s a SUNNY FRIDAY and my friends are home to RUN!!  

Make it a GREAT and HAPPY weekend!!


Well, I had great intentions of several exciting posts this weekend and it did not happen.  I don’t usually like to expound on my busyness but I think I have maxed myself out to about 99.9% capacity this weekend.  My brain is tired and I still have 3 more Halloween parties next week.  That doesn’t even include each classroom Halloween party that each of my kids have.  Hurt me.

Biggest surprise of the weekend was this:

Ha ha!  I love the scale.  I’m going against all trendy fitness mantras.  I’m not a secret anorexic either.  In fact, the day before I weighed myself I didn’t even exercise and I ate a slice of pizza and 2 slices of chocolate chip banana bread!  What a diet!  I did however run 9 miles the morning of my weigh in!  Either way, I did not cheat.  I let go of the counter and even jumped on the scale 3 times.  It did not change!  So….I didn’t have to send my hot pink “barbie” shoes back.  The girls at church nicknamed them barbie shoes!

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go to this POST!

Lately I’ve been eating crazy healthy all week and having a 24 hour eat whatever I want break on the weekend!  For the last 3 weeks it’s been great.  I don’t know why I have to binge because I feel disgusting every time, but it’s working.  7 sugar cookies for dinner is what I’m talking about!

Here is my power tip for the week.  Find 1 goal you’d like to work on for the week and DO IT!!!  Whether it be get to bed at 10 p.m., run 3 days a week, eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day, tell your kids you love them and give them a big hug every day, whatever!!  It’s not so overwhelming when you choose ONE goal for ONE week to improve on.  See if you can do it 6 out of the 7 days!  You’ll feel so proud of yourself and be happier that you accomplished something important to you!!

Spiritual thought for this great day.  I was driving today and witnessed a most inspiring sunset to the west and then I noticed to the east the moon rising over the mountain.  I didn’t know how to take a picture of both of them at the same time, but it was a beautiful gift to see.

Enjoy this peaceful song that I love.  I’m teaching the girls in my church several of the Jenny Phillips songs.  They are exceptional!  I couldn’t decide which one to put on here.  Look up a few others if you’d like.

Goodnight and sweet dreams *
