-- peeks head in -- Hello!

I know, I know.  I've been gone for a minute.  Lets just say I've been under a lot of stress and feeling in a funky depressed type of mood.  I've been working A LOT.  But that's no excuse.  Which also means I just plain ol' stopped doing everything related to weight loss.

Life lately >>> Working a lot, stress of not having enough money to cover everything... being the sole bread winner is starting to get to me.  But I made a promise to my husband that I would do this with no major complaints because we are sacrificing for him to finish cosmetology school.  And believe, I have been counting down the days.  At this point 3 more months.  Lol.  But its going to be worth it in the end.  I know this... he is talented.  Check out what he did to my hair... he did an asymmetrical bob and my carmel highlights.  I've received so many compliments.  And still do.  He even did my niece's hair and color.  He is very talented.  I even watched a documentary with him on Vidal Sassoon.  Very interesting stuff.  This is his passion and I'm happy to see him fulfill it.  And I know not too much longer... plus the good part is, he has a lot of salon's who are trying to recruit him due to his talent.  He's definitely not your typical hair stylist.  And I admit, he is teaching me to be more out of the box.

Anywho... After being in the dumps though, I finally have decided to get back in the weight loss thing again.  I have noticed that in the past couple of years I have stopped the weight loss thing around this time of year.  But I'm getting back on track now.  My friend Nik from Nik Gets Fit is doing a Weight Loss Challenge that starts on May 1st and goes for 12 weeks.  I decided I'm going to do this.  This is what I need to get going again.  And it also helps that we had to put $5 in the pot... winner gets all the dough, plus a Polar HRM and some Urban Decay makeup.  And even if I don't win... I still win personally by losing some weight.

I'm excited... which is the typical thing I go through when I start/stop the weight thing.  I just hope this is the thing to break the cycle and keep me focused enough to be dedicated and keep going.

Well... back to working on claims.  Laters.
