Up 1.4 Pounds

Cute, right?  I lose 1.4 pounds last week, and now I’m right back to where I was.

Ugh.

I mean, it’s not like I tried really hard this week.  I’m not walking around today going, “Huh, I wonder why I didn’t lose weight this week.  It couldn’t possibly be the fact that I only worked out once and didn’t even get close to cooking anything all week.”  I know exactly what’s going on here.  I half-assed it this week.  Actually, I probably only quarter-assed it this week.  Eighth-assed it?  Yes.  I eighth-assed it this week.

I do have a big announcement from this week – I turned in my letter of resignation at work! My last day is June 1 and let me tell you what – I am incredibly excited.  Now, there are a lot of reasons behind this, but the main one is this: I want to focus on things about which I am incredibly passionate.  I am currently applying for teaching jobs, and I cannot wait to focus on playing the saxophone, singing, and my photography.  I am so incredibly happy about my decision – it has taken a huge weight off of my shoulders.  (Haha, get it? Weight? Except apparently the weight left my shoulders and went somewhere else this week…..)

This means a lot of new things for my life – and this blog.  For the next unknown amount of time, I will be unemployed.  This means a lot of awesome and scary things, including a complete overhaul of my daily routine.  I will have the time to workout and cook every single day (in theory).  The only question is – will I actually DO these things?  That’s where you come in, Support System – you all have to keep my accountable in my new routine!

In other completely unrelated news, here’s a pretty photo of sunflowers:

Also, I would like to introduce you to my absolute favorite sweet treat in the world.  There are few sweets that are both lower in calories and INCREDIBLY delicious – and I have found my favorite: Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Ice Cream Bars.  Or WWDCDDLICB.  Commit that acronym to memory.

Seriously, though, folks.  It’s only 3 points, and it’s incredibly amazing.

That’s last week’s update – I’ll keep you posted on this week’s progress.  Let’s keep sending the good vibes, shall we?
