Life since Chicago...(picture post included)

Oh my goodness. I have been a terrible blogger since coming back from Chicago. I guess all the fun and excitement just wore me out!

First of all, here is my picture post from the weekend. This past Friday I went down to Auburn for the weekend. It was fabulous as always. Auburn played LA Monroe and the score was like 300 to 3....so that was good and boring at the same time. My friends and family and I still had a great time enjoying each others company. I was proud of myself for not eating too much of all the delicious tailgating food but I still managed to have a hot dog and some roasted marshmallows! Here are some pictures from Auburn!












*******************

In some fantastic weight loss news....this morning I hit my new LOW!! The scale read 218.2!! Several times I have gotten down to 219 but I haven't seen 218 yet so that was super exciting!! My goal is to be at 210 by Oct. 23rd which is my 1 year bandiversary. That would mean losing 8 pounds in the next 19 days....I realize that is a little bit of a stretch but hey, makes me work hard towards something!

This weekend I am planning on participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Birmingham. My grandmother was a two time breast cancer survivor and my cousins and I want to do this in remembrance of her. She has since past but she was the strongest woman I know and my hero. My cousins are wanting to do the 1 mile course but I am thinking it will be a good chance for me to push myself and do the 5k. I will probably just have to walk the whole thing...maybe jog a little...but I am so honored to be participating. I didnt do the race in Chicago so I definitely wanted to make sure I did it in Birmingham.

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!
