Taking a break

Ohhhh, expecting Fat Friday weren't ya?

I'm skipping this week. Actually, more like starting over because I'm right around the zero mark again. This past week my nose was to the grindstone in more ways than one, and one of the things I sacrificed was my quest to eat well and exercise. If I'd already been in a good habit it of it, it wouldn't have been a big deal. But I wasn't.

SO I'm starting over at zero.

I have 68 more days until I leave for the conference. That equals 9 weeks and 5 days. *gulp* My goal was to lose 13 pounds... and it still is. That's less than 2 pounds per week and SO doable. I still have a TON to do before conference, and I'll be posting about that next week. In fact, I might make a series on it. "How to prepare to go to A conference" realizing that not everyone goes to or will be able to make ACFW.

My 13 pounds is not only for conference though. A week after conference ends is my hubby and my 10th anniversary, so a wee bit of it is so I can look nice for him too. I know, I know, he loves me no matter what, but still. When he puts effort into looking nice for me, it makes me feel SOOOO so good. I want to do the same for him.

Discussion: Where are you at on your Fat Friday Goals? Or alternate discussion if you'd like... who's going to ACFW?!?

I joined a gym about a month ago and all I have lost is 3lbs. Granted my goal is only 10, it's still discouraging. This whole dieting thing doesn't work when it's summer and everything looks so yummy! I feel your pain :)

So, I started exercising this week with my DD's. Can you hold me accountable for that? I'm going to try to walk three times a week to start with.

And YES, I'm headed to ACFW! I even have my plane ticket now! Can we all do a big blogging b-fast or something there? Wouldn't that be fun!

I was totally prepared to NOT share in your Fat Friday, so I'm relieved you're taking the day off! This week was totally blown. Totally.
A pound a week is soooo doable, girl! You can do it!

Hey, Krista. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. That is so funny. Fitness Friday vs. Fat Friday.

You can definitely lose 13 pounds in less than 10 weeks! I'm pulling for you.
