The Biggest LOSER

And I'm not talking about weight. That biatch Traci is a straight up LOSER in the true sense of the word. She's only playing the game to control it for herself and her own good. She didn't think of anyone else in that whole entire house except for her.
Now, I know its a TV show, but this is real! This is something that affects our everyday life. Obesity is everywhere. These people need this show and need this opportunity. They are all (mostly) kind, considerate, and genuinely concerned about the well being of their fellow teammates. They know who needs to stay and are willing to do what it takes to make that happen, even if that means they have to sacrifice themselves and their spot. She's not. AND after her weeklong stay in the hospital following the first challenge off the bus and having her partner pick up her slack just so she could stay in the house, you would think she understood. She doesn't.
YES, it is a game, I get that. BUT it is also life and she's toying with it by choosing to be in control. Then, she's trying to backtrack and be "honest" but she'll never be trusted again. I hope her partner Mo realizes who she really is and stop giving her the benefit of the doubt! He truly knows the power of forgiveness. He's a good man.

Ok...so I know I have no clue who these people are, but to watch the devastation of their lives and feelings be so raw and out there makes me feel like I know them.

Thanks for letting me on the soap box!

Not to disappoint...

My Daycare Daddy reader.....

He's one of the men that reads the blog! That's my nickname for him because I walk/workout with his wife and they have 3 kids that Little Hauss plays with while we are off doing our thing. He's had his, mine, and even a couple others at one time to supervise - so we joke that he should open his own Daddy Daycare.

Anywho, he was pointing his finger last night about it being over 4 days since posting.....I totally thought he was telling me it had been 4 days since I'd gone to the gym - which I defended that it hadn't....but he wanted more posts!!! Too funny - he's addicted to blogging! So, here's to you Daddy Daycare - a whole post dedicated just to you!

28 lbs

I would love to say this is what I've lost in weight, but it's not....but on a side note, I'm down about 8 lbs.

Still don't know? It's the weight of my suitcase!!!! YES, I've already started packing. I have to. I have to make sure everything fits in the carry-on so I'm not paying to check the bag! I'm that cheap. I have a few ideas what I could do with an extra $30, not to mention if we both checked bags! Sheesh - what a ripoff!

Now, this still gives me room to groove. I have to keep it under 40 lbs. I already have all my dinner outfits, excursion outfits, shoes, toiletries, exercise clothes, bathing suits, and pajamas! I am sure I can throw in a few more things - one of which will probably be hubby's size 13 shoes!!! Golly ned, those suckers take up a lot of room in a suitcase! And, yes, I will be exercising! Hubby is addicted to the gym and sweating and all that good for you crap, so there is no excuse for me not to join him! Plus it will help keep these 8 lbs off that I've worked so hard for the past couple of weeks.

I also have to plan for New Orleans. We are staying there Thursday night after we get off the boat. More clothes!!! I'm an overpacker by nature. It's not that I don't plan the outfits - hello - panner here, but I like options. I don't like being committed to one outfit before I leave - I mean, you never know what the weather will do and what you'll be in the mood for. So, I've tried my best to have a few versatile pieces to mix and match throughout the week! Watch it be like the beach, and you pack all kinds of stuff and live in a bathing suit for 5 days!
