So is it a coincidence that my weigh in is the same as Biggest Loser weigh in? Maybe, but mostly I just wanted a recovery time from the water weight of Sunday sugar overdoses.

So...drum roll puh-lease.
Two pounds...that's what I lost last week. My new Magic Number is 154...(not so magic, is it?) But I'll take two pounds. Sure, with two birthday's the first week of the month AND a Superbowl party; two pounds is worth being happy about.

Below, Danny and I all 'gussied' up for his Birthday Date Night (2/5/10). His little sister was kind enough to come over and do my eye makeup... pretty sassy, eh?

The Day, The Food, The Confessions:
Breakfast: 2 dollar Whole Wheat Pancakes with real maple syrup (not that fake high fructose corn syrup crap) with a glass of fresh squeezed Orange juice with water. Snacks: Bites of cheese and fruit from Holden's high chair (I always seem to steal a few bites here and there of his fruit while I'm cutting it up). Lunch: Twice Baked potato (I made these for lunch with small russet potatoes,tweaking the recipe to include grilled mushrooms & onions instead of a ton of cheese and butter...still used some sour cream, cheese and a small pat of butter.) Spinach salad (yet again) with apples, red grapes, avocado and the end of the blush wine vinaigrette. I'm going to try and make my own variety instead. Afternoon Snack: 4 bites plain baked potato Dinner: Twice baked potato and 1/2 an avocado Luxury: 3 bites homemade chocolate mint brownie

In other news... it really perturbs me that our state legislature wastes it's time with THIS. Especially when most car accidents happen well within that parameter. Seriously Utah Congress? I am so over you.

Thought you might enjoy this video of my son walking, 'talking' (not doing yoga...) and then attacking me vociferously.

Also, I posted a link earlier in the blog, but Holden's Bday Party Pictures are loaded here.

I am so proud of you! Think about two lbs in butter. That is a big chunk of fat! You have inspired me to get started. As you know, I am currently a contender on MWSBF's Biggest Loser, but I haven't actually started working out or dieting. Until now.
