So. It's almost the new year.
And I've been doing a lot of thinking about "Fat Friday." Should I continue? Should I just do it privately?
But I decided to go ahead and continue it, because even if it helps no one else, it helps ME to have to be accountable.
I'm changing the name though. When I started Fat Friday, I came up with the name because a.) it was kinda funny to say "Fat friday" and b.) I'm all about stating the obvious and c.) The first step to fixing something is admitting you have a problem!
At my heart, though, I'm an optimist. Fat Friday is not very optimistic.
So from now on, Fat Friday will be known as "Skinny Friday."
Yes, yes, I should really call it "healthy" Friday or stay with the whole F theme and be "Fit Friday" but... that's too normal and boring. Skinny Friday makes me smile. And if there is one thing I love my readers to get out of my blog, it's a big fa... i mean skinny... smile! (Although I realize there have been a lot of tear moments over the last year too...)
My Skinny Friday Plan:
Tomorrow night, right before the new year, I'll step on the ol' scale. And for 2012, I'll be starting over at zero. I invite you to be zero as well!!! I'm still having similar, baby step goals as last year, for me, linked to "pre-baby" weights of each of my children. I'm current right around my Pre-Annabelle weight, give or take.
And we'll be taking before pictures too. You know the ones where you stick out your gut as far as you can and wear a sad frown and wear frumpy clothes that are completely unflattering and no makeup?
I won't post those just yet. Call it pride or something. But at each milestone I DO make... I'll post the updated pictures (obviously sucking in my gut and wearing black, thinning, cloths, HA HA HA!)
So... get out that ol' digital camera and snap away tomorrow! Look your worst, I tell ya!
And as you hit YOUR goals... feel free to send before and after pictures to me, and I'll post them. You KNOW you want to:-)
Found a few more Christmas pictures my sis-in-law took for me and I wanted to share!
All My girls!!!
Annabelle: Isn't my shoe just too cute???
Lyla: Wow, uh, they are kinda just like mine. But... whateva...
Annabelle: Fine. You don't like them? I'll just eat my shoe.
Lyla: Hm. I wonder if that tastes any good. Maybe I should try?
Annabelle: Girl, we look amazing.
Lyla: Heck yeah we do.
Lyla: See me pose?
Annabelle: Lord, this girl is off her rocker...
Annabelle: Finally, the steps to myself. Losers, every one of them. I'm the diva here!
