He Popped the Question

So last night I had a dream that I met Hanson and I was SO excited. And Zach asked me if I wanted to marry him and I wished so bad that my wedding ring wasn’t being resized so that I would be wearing it and he would have known I was already married, because obviously my husband is better than Zach. lol Why would I dream such a thing? Which was really funny because I was more of a Taylor kind of girl. Winking smile Am I in 7th grade again? I haven’t thought about Hanson in forever but I was a pretty big fan as a tween. Anyone else? lol Shall we reminisce? hehe Just listening to this song brings back memories of summer time, the pool, boys, and Teenie Bopper magazines. hehe  It’s just one of those songs from your life that can pretty much take you back to that place. Smile

MMMBop- Hanson


For breakfast this morning, I had a Cinnamon Raisin Thomas Bagel thin with Honey Nut cream cheese, a glass of milk and a bowl of fruit for 7 points.

This morning, the wind started to pick up and I got a little worried. Winking smileThankfully the storm passed and everything was ok. But it brought much cooler temperatures with it! WHEW! Although the tree that we put in the hot porch in the summer was loving the heat! Look at the bloom we finally got!

I enjoyed my supper so much last night, I decided to have the same thing—well sort of. I had Tilapia instead of Flounder, topped with fruit salsa, SF Jell-O, and a side of zucchini for 4 points.

And I finished it up with a Skinny Cow Heavenly Peanut Butter Crisp bar for 3 points.

On my last break, I drank a cup of Duchess Grey tea for 0 points.

I was so hungry after work but I don’t like to eat after 2:30 or so before my WW weigh in at 5:00 or so. But wow, does my weight drop between about 1:30-4:00! I’ve noticed this before too, like 2 lbs. worth!

I headed to my WW meeting and guess what? I lost 1.2 lbs!! Whoohoo! I’m starting to like my WW meeting weigh in’s better than my official at home weigh in! haha So I’ve lost 3.8 lbs. since I started going to the WW meetings. I’d love to meet my WW 5 lb. goal next week! I was also wearing a 5K shirt and one of the leaders asked if I had gotten my charm for the 5K. So come to find out, we DO get a 5K charm for every 5k we run, we are just supposed to remind them if we complete one. So look what I got!

My 2nd 5K charm! Can’t wait to earn more of them!

I didn’t go to last week’s meeting because honestly, I didn’t think there would be one when we were all out of electricity, but I guess there was one. But after attending tonight’s meeting, I realized how helpful those meetings are to me. They’re so motivational! I’m glad I started going to the meetings.

After the meeting, I headed to a nearby town to pick up my ring!! I was so happy with how it looks. We had it cleaned and resized from a 9.25 to a 7.5! Smile

It looks just like the day we wed! And now I don’t have to worry about it falling off of my finger anymore. That’s a relief.

I did a little browsing at the mall, but didn’t buy anything. I picked up Subway for supper. I had a 6” Oven Roasted Chicken Breast and Baked BBQ Lays for 12 points.

There was a rainbow in the sky while I was eating my supper. So pretty, but you can’t see it so well in the picture.

And then, since I was in town, I had to grab a cone at my new favorite ice cream shop. Strawberry Twist for 5 points.

When I got home, I spontaneously decided to go for a run. It was much cooler outside, about 80 degrees, but still humid! It was a fantastic workout though! I ran 2.02 miles in 26:06. I have been letting my HR monitor run for calorie burn until my HR goes below 100 BPM, because I figure I’m still burning quite a few calories if my resting HR is in the 60’s. Tonight, it took forever for my HR to even out. It usually takes about 5 minutes or less before it drops, tonight, I stopped it was still 110 BPM after 22 minutes? Weird. I’m not really sure what to think of that. It said I burned 480 calories! Whoohoo! I did feel kind of shaky?

Shortly after I got home, HUBBY CAME HOME!!! Yay! Now we can have a few normal days again. Smile

And look what I got in the mail today:
