Ok so I am still waiting to hear if I have been selected as the next prior fat girl mom edition. As more of the day goes on I am thinking that it is not me. One email with instructions said the winner will be notified today another one said we would all be notified today....so I am waiting and thinking perhaps I haven't heard because it wasn't me. Which I have to be honest I do think I would be a bit bummed. I think it is something that would be a great opportunity for me. On the other hand just entering this competition has been wonderful. I finally told a lot of people about my weight issues and my eating issues and although scary was very liberating so even if I don't win it will still have been a good thing for me to do. Well I am off to cozy up on the couch with my new puppy and head to be early (of course stalking my email at least one more time pre bed). Had the prom last night so I hardly got any sleep after coming home at 1pm and getting up with the kids at 6! I will let everyone know how the results turn out. Thanks for all your support in the competition as well as on here
Ok everyone-To my official followers and those of you who stalk my blog (I know some of you do) now is the time I could really use your help. The voting portion of Prior Fat Girl Mom edition has begun. The mom with the most votes at the end of this week will be it. We are not really allowed to beg for votes since this is about who would be the best fit for the prior fat girl website so for my follower most of whom visit the site anyways, if you feel I would be the best mom prior fat girl...please cast your vote in my favor. If not check out who would be the best! I have been excited for this opportunity so go on, head over there, and check it out!
So we are so excited to tell my bloggy world that we are adding on the the Hunt family. Please meet Olivia (Livvy) Hunt. She is a cute six pound, four month old, rat terrier. She has stolen my heart already. The best part...she needs about an hour or so of walking every day to keep her happy. Lots of Activity Points for me!! Trying to get some photos up here for you all to see. Also please check out www.priorfatgirl.com my entry was posted on Monday under the future prior fat girl tab. Off to snuggle my babies!
Ok so I have done two things out of my comfort zone lately. The first is that I allowed someone to get upset with me and I DIDN"T try to make it better. I am a fixer, I always have to have people like me so when someone gets upset with me I totally bend over backwards to fix it, make it better, even if I didn't do anything wrong. I do this even when it may have been something my hubby has done. I hate for people to be upset with me. Well I have been working on that...that it is ok for people not to like me or be upset with me. So recently on facebook (sometimes I hate that stupid thing) I posted a status that got someone upset. There was nothing wrong with my status I was commenting on some bad tests I had to grade and a friend of a friend some how got offended and then proceeded to start a rant on my page. TO the point that three separate people emailed me to comment on how offensive this other person was to me. So rather then try and make it better I simple posted my opinion and said that this person in the past has said things that offend my sensibilities and that we need to agree to disagree. Then about 10 hours later I just simply deleted all the comments from my page. Screw them! Its my page-If you don't like it too bad. Go be mad at me. I don't need someone like that anywhere in my life. For most people this is a normal response...but for me it was a big deal
The other thing outside my comfort zone...I am in the running to be the next prior fat girl. For those of you who don't know there is an amazing site for those of us who are struggling in our journey to figure out what a healthy lifestyle is. The site is called www.priorfatgirl.com I love it. Well a few weeks ago I noticed that they were looking for a new prior fat girl, one that was a mom, to be a contributing blogger to the site. Normally I would shy away from this because it would mean be open and honest about my eating issues. Instead I thought that this would be an amazing opportunity for me...even just applying was a great thing. So I did and guess what....I was chosen as one of the few entries that the readers of the site will get to vote on as the possible new Prior fat girl! This is so exciting to me. I promise once my submission goes up I will post for all of you to see it.
Sounds like Spring is the start of some new beginnings for me!
Over the past week and half from my birthday to the aftermath of my baby girl's party my eating has been gross. There were times I found myself eating junk not because I was hungry but because it was there. I am not use to eating out or having junk food in the house so I was ridiculous. I hated that out of control feeling around food, but more than that I hated feeling gross after eating. So this AM, I stepped on the scale saw the 2.5 pounds of damage the last week and half had done and am back on track. Glad to be headed in the right direction. I am still working on that 50 pounds, and I would love to get there before May! Off to log my points online...
Here is a picture from the party this weekend of my baby girl and me!
