Monday: The Weigh In

A conversation with my mom...

Me: I changed my weigh in day to Monday since I tend to over eat on the weekends.
Her: That's a good idea
Me: I'm also going to pretend I ate all my weeklies, so I won't be tempted.
Her: That's a good idea
Me: I'll do that with my activities too, 'spending' them the same day I earn them.
Her: That's a good idea
Me: Don't you think that's a good idea? ;)

Any weigh (see what I did there? That's called a pun) on to the good stuff!

This week, I weighed in at... *drumroll please* 223.0 which is a slight gain from last week's weight of 222.6 lbs.

It brings my total loss to 7 lbs since I started WW twenty four weeks ago... that's incredibly... slow... It factors out to be about .3 lost per week. It's okay though... at least I am losing/maintaining rather than what would be happening. If I had given up all the times I thought about it, I would very easily be 300 lbs.

How did I do last week? Here's a look at my tracker...

Tracked! 6.5 days!

*I tracked 6.5 days straight! I only count Thursday as half, since I know I ate on Thursday hehe :)

This morning I opted for toast and peanut butter on it instead of my scrambled eggs with melted provolone cheese because I was too lazy to cook. Which means, most likely, eggs are for lunch. I use the terms breakfast and lunch lightly because it is 4 pm and I just woke up!

Shhhhh. Don't judge.

I have one other, awesome little announcement! Brian and I started a YouTube series called Married in Minecraft!

Minecraft is a PC game in which you are plopped into a randomly-generated world and you are given the task to collect resources and to make items to defend yourself from monsters. It's a great little game that the creator made on a whim and it EXPLODED! into this huge phenomenon! If you want to read more about it, you can do so here, and if you'd like to watch our exploits, you can do so here. I'm ecstatic because I came up with the idea and thought it would be fantastic and funny, but it wouldn't generate any response. I was wrong!! In less than 24 hours, we got 15 new subscribers/followers on YouTube and the video itself got 140+ views which is to say, awesome for us nobody's! We also got a few of the 'big time' Minecraft Youtubers to subscribe and repost our videos, calling us "fresh" and "entertaining" Ha! I'm blushing... no seriously...

We show both our screens at the same time, and of course, we have commentary. Lots and lots of commentary. Am I this eloquent in real life? Am I this funny? Do you want to hear my sexy husband's voice as he screams like a little girl? Now you can!

Thanks for putting up with my shameless plugging. And yes, episode 2 is uploaded now!! Go look!!


  1. I love that you can share so much with your husband. My beau and I love playing COD, and more recently Dragon Age 2! :)

  2. This looks like fun! My Sailor and I are still apart for a few more weeks, so we're looking for more date ideas than just Netflix dates. We might need a MineCraft Night!


COMMENT. You know you have an opinion, air it!
