Happenings.

1. Garth has been going to the gym on his lunch everyday for the last few weeks and I am so proud of him!

2. We're doing great with another successful week of no take-out. The Biggest Loser cookbook is they key component to our success - the recipes are easy, quick, and don't require that many ingredients.

3. My event is next Tuesday, eek! It's a gala for 450 people and the last minute details stress me out. Why do people register so late?!

4. I've been working out every morning and eating well and I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow. I'm a bit nervous, but I really hope the pleateu has come to an end.

5. Looking forward to a chill Halloween at home with a game night and some favorite people.

6. Happy that I can FINALLY put my hair in a pony tail, even if it takes over 20 bobby pins. If there's a will there's a way, right?

7. Mad Abby went home yesterday because I really thought she was going to be The Biggest Loser. But she looks fab!

8. Started doing yoga again and forgot how tough it was. My arms are killing me today.

9. Obsessed with Sophie Kinsella books right now.

10. Excited that one of Garth's co-workers and his gf are moving to our complex. They seem similar to us and I think our dinner date will be a success.

11. Hoping we can attend our church's leadership meeting and become small group leaders.

12. Enjoying the sweater weather and beautiful colors of the fall.

I'll be praying you guys get to become small group leaders! It is so rewarding!

Hey, if you gotta use 50 bobby pins to get that hair up, it's ok! I do! LOL

Aartee said...

Good luck with your event I'm sure it will be great!

Heather said...

Love sweater weather!! I agree on the yoga, I started up again and I couldnt move after the first day.

Kassie said...

You have a lot going on! Good luck for your event--how stressful!

Rachael said...

I love Sophie Kinsella books too! I also can relate to the pony tail. Last December I chopped my hair so short and I was so excited when it finally grew long enough to put up again. I just felt more girly with longer hair. My hair is still growing out from that cut.

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Yea for ponytails. Seriously, what would I do without them?

Mrs. Dew said...

LOVE cooking at home!!! Saves so much money and you know what you are eating! Good for you!

Mrs. S. said...

I love Sophie Kinsella books! They are so fun and so good! I need to read Can You Keep a Secret? I haven't been able to get me hands on it yet!

I was so mad that Abby went home, too, but I think that she grew into an amazing person while she was there. I can't wait to see her on the finale!

Good luck on your weigh-in tomorrow, but awesome job on the quest of health and happiness! I think that you and Garth are both on the right track!

Emma-leigh said...

Meagan said...

You guys are awesome! I hope some of this motivation rubs off on me!!!

Tara Gibson said...

Jenny.Lee said...

I've looked at that BL cookbook before. I'll have to pick it up this weekend! Thank you!

Vineyard Vogue said...

#12- it IS so beautiful in Michigan right now, isn't it? I love this time of year :)

liz said...

I couldn't believe Abby went home too! I'll have to add the BL cookbook to my Xmas list. I've only read the Undomestic Goddess but it was a great read.

Perfectly Pleasant said...

Way to go with the gym, you guys rock!

Anne Carr said...

Good for you and this commitment to working out! I'm trying really hard, but haven't been feeling well and that makes it twice as hard to feel motivated! Our trip to Hawaii is coming up in January and I'd really like to drop at least 10-ish pounds by then. ... which isn't easy to do around the holidays with all the yummy treats that are around!

I didn't know there was a Biggest Loser cookbook -- I might have to check that out!

Hope the weigh-in is encouraging!

Katie said...

I'm mad that Abby went home too! I think Daniel should have manned up and gone home.

I hope everything goes well for your event. I am (kind of) in event planning too so I know that is stressful. I'd love to know more about your position.

Hope you've broken the plateau!!

Vanessa said...

Love Sophie Kinsella too! Just found your blog and it's fabulous! You've been to Israel? When? I'm getting married there in May! Look forward to reading more of your blog and following! :) x

MissJody said...

You two are amazing and doing great!!!
I'm so happy your keeping up with it!
Congrats!!!! :)
Don't you feel good about yourself in other aspects also? Just your everyday attitude? It all changes huh? for the good I mean...your more positive and things are just looked at, differ.
Good job!
