Okay, wish me luck! Here's to a week of not stuffing my FACE and putting my REAR in gear!
Follow me as I take you through a 20-something's life in San Antonio, the Texas Hill Country, and the "Great State" in general. I'll talk about all the adventures Texas has to offer, how I managed to gain 10+ pounds on deeeelicious Mexican food, and so much more! I don't ever sit still and it makes for some pretty interesting stories!

Weigh-In Day! Dum dum dummmm!
On January 4th, I started a weight loss competition at my local nutrition store. The ladies who own the store, and their helpers/employees are amazingly motivating people who truly care about their customers' health. I saw the advertisement for the challenge, and decided I wanted to participate. Knowing that I am such a cheapskate, I figured paying money to be a part of the challenge, then being forced to pay a dollar for every pound gained during the challenge, I would probably stick with it. So far, the first week I gained 1.5 lbs (my birthday week), then I lost 4 lbs, and promptly gained 2 lbs back. This week, I lost .5 lbs. So, where am I going with this? Today, I'd like to talk about the dreaded "Weigh-In Day!" Each week, I know its coming. I am fully aware that every Tuesday morning before work, I'm going to trot on over to the store and weigh-in. So how do I prepare for this excruciating task each week? I eat very well M-F, and not so great on Saturday and Sunday. Then, I drink TONS of water on Monday, hoping to flush away all the fat I consumed over the weekend! It usually doesn't work. Case in point--eating a bowl of chips and queso (with only some assistance from Chris) does not promote fat loss! Additionally, the Stromboli I made for dinner last night, although delicious, also does not promote fat loss. Therefore, each week I DREAD weigh-in day. If I could just figure out how to quit putting food in my mouth, I'd be all set! So, this week I am re-commiting to my challenge! I have 28 days left, and I want to win some $$$$! The store I go to for my nutritional guidance is called Don't Overlook Nutrition. It is located on Overlook Parkway, off of Hwy 281. As I mentioned the staff is fantastic, the shakes and supplements are very reasonably priced, and its nice to have a support system right down the street. I highly recommend that you stop in and try one of their shakes...Elvis and Orange Julius are my favorites!
