So I am back, finals are over and I have just caught up on all your lovely blogs, I tried to comment on most, but ya know how that goes when you have like 25 blogs to catch up on!

First order of buisness - I am now going to BOOBS!!! I am so excited, I really have been wanting to go, but I have this little rejection issue, so I couldn't bring myself to be all will someone plz be my roomie thing - koodos to all that can, not me. So Liz and I ( and possibly a third) will be going so get ready, I can't waitto meet all you amazing ladies!!

Now that I have Chicago to look forward to I am feeling really motivated, I want to look hot with all you fine ladies as we hit the town!! I am really going to try to be at 180's range by September, that would be amazing!!! Now there is that little thing with the 5k, I am so down, it will be fun to run with a posse for support, and quite  honestly I am really competetive and I want to rock this 5K. That means run - not walk it, and make it in around 30 mins. I am going to diligently do the Couch to 5K bit which will last me until August and then I will just work on improving my time!! So that thing zooming through the 5K, well that will be me!!!

As for the Summer challenge - some you out there are AMAZING - 4% in just one week, talk about incredible. I lost 4 lbs exactly! Apparently my body likes to be at something.6, I was 210.6 starting and then 206.6 on sunday. I saw 205 last week, but then I went crazy with finals and had a Reese's cup extravaganza (along with a few of his evil friends, chips, frozen hotchocolates, etc) then my bestie, Ms. period decided to come for a visit and well, now you see I was up by a bit. This does bring me hope that this week will be a big loss tho :) Now I see how tough this competition is going to be, and quite frankly all I have to say it bring it on!! In fact this has lead me to want to go all crazy and try to reach wonderland this week, yes ladies and gentilmen, I will be attempting a wopping 7 lb loss, and you know what if I don't make it I will be fine, but if I do well then that will be quite an accomplishment don't cha think. Here is why I think I can do it, I lost 4 lbs and didn't do much of anything, I didn;t work out (besides making out with the new boy which by the way is rather nice ;) ) I ate like a copious amounts of bad bad food, had some drinks and started my period, so therefore I most definately think that 7 lbs is possible.

Here are my possible obsticles, I am on my period so all I want is chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate, oh yea and add in a little peanutbutter with a side of icecream! And even worse than that, I am spending the week at my parents. This is where all my bad habits began, this is the place that I walk in the door and my first habit is to open the fridge and scope out the goodies - isn't that terrible. Plus, my family just doesn't understand how to shop for healthy food, I woke up this morning and the only thing to eat was sugary cereal, she had no healthy cerial, no high protein yogurt, I mean nothing that resembles healthy eating. This upsets me because, my mom got banded with me and while she has lost some weight, its not too impressive 40lbs in a year, I don't want to say anything, because this is her journey, but its very hard for me to find food for me in this house. So I have informed her that today we are going to the grocery, I am not going to do this, I am not going to eat crap and feel like crap because I am home visisting, I am going to continue my journey, and hopefully me being here will help her, if not ohh well.

Well, I am now off to the park for a run now, have a good monday!!!

Congrats on the weight loss, and the makeout sessions with the new boy! I can't wait to meet you in Chicago!

I can totally relate to bad eating habits when visiting parents. Going back home makes me realize how I got as fat as I did. I never learned healthy eating habits as a child or adolescent. I feel so fortunate that I have learned. Better late than never! I look forward to having kids and being able to break the cycle and teach them from a young age to look at food as fuel for their bodies.

I'm the same way at my parents house. They have stuff I grew up loving... and sometimes the only will power I have is going home!

Happy to hear you'll be going to Chicago. I think lots of BOOBs were a little nervous, too.

BTW, I love the title of your blog.
