That Will Be All

I have a 3 day weekend. This means I only work one day next week. I should take that day off too but I’m just too much of a good employee.

I love 3 day weekends. I feel that it should be made into a law that everyone works 4 days and is off 3 days per week. Who’s with me?

I actually want to start packing today or tomorrow. This is new for me since I always pack the night before I leave.

I turn 30 next Saturday. Next Saturday! OMG! I’m officially a grown-up!

I had a conversation with Sean a few days ago. It went something like this:

Faith: I’m sorry you made me mad.
Sean: (Silence)
Faith: I’m sorry you made me mad.
Sean: I’m sleeping, stop talking.
Faith: I’m going to keep talking until you say, OK.
Sean: OK.
Faith: It’s nice to win yet another disagreement.
Sean: Let’s just agree to disagree.
Faith: It’s nice to win yet another disagreement.
Sean: (Silence)

I guess he just wanted to sleep or I was right. I’ll take the latter.

I’m down another 2 lbs this week. Do you want to know what this actually means? No? Oh, I'll tell you anyways.

I started my get back to my wedding weight in May 2011. I did really well in 2011 actually losing 20 lbs by the end of 2011. Then in 2012, I gained some of that weight back {12 lbs} because ice cream on the daily sounded like the best idea known to man. Oh and chocolate covered pretzels. Oh and Doritos. Can’t leave out my beloved Doritos. Well ladies and gents, from May 2011 til today I am down a total of *** DRUMROLL PLEASE *** 22.7 lbs.

Look at a comparison from May 2011 and recent. Although, I am a few lbs lower now than in the after pictures. I wanted to find pictures with me kinda sitting like the one in 2011. I didn't have any recent similar to that one, so the after will have to do for now.

And what about this?

OK, enough of the bragging.

Hmm, do I have anything else to discuss?

I don’t think so.

So blogging friends, enjoy the weekend. I hope you all have 3 day weekends too! Happy Friday!

I'm with you on the three day weekends - we should get that turned into a law or something! I work half days on Friday, but it's just not the same!

And way to go on 22.7 pounds - that is so awesome!

GO FAITH! #Team Faith! You look stunning! Wow 22lbs that's almost 3 healthy newborns combined, lol. You are inspiring and your argument with Sean is hilarious. I'm gonna have to do that more often to mine. Oh and I wish you the happiest bday a girl could ask for and you are one hot 30 year young lady! xo

tiff@thecoffeehouse said...

Wishing you a very happy weekend as well! (although I don't think you'll need my wishing cause you get extra time off and that's pretty much the best weekend ever). You look hot, btw. :)

Melissa said...

You look ah-mazing, Faith!! Way to go, little lady! The next time you get up 22 lbs. it will be all baby weight, right? Right? :)

Myhusbnd has a 4 day weekend and I forgot to take my son to school this morning becuase i thought it was saturday lol. it's all good i slept soooo well last night! sorry your husban made you andgry, it' better to let him know than to be passive aggressive! Hope you have a great weekend. haooy 30th. i turn 30 next year! not as scary as i though. just making an effort to accomplish as much as possible before then!

Morgan said...

Ok, nobody can fault you for the chocolate-covered pretzels... Those things are delicious! I will probably have to go buy some after work...

Travel_The_World said...

You look great and you've done awesome!!!

And I agree with you on winning an argument. I typically just say "fine...whatever, you win" and he'll go "no no no dear...you're right" :-). I know he doesn't mean it but I like that he wants me to be happy so he says it to keep the peace.

Have a fabulous weekend!

One of the two hundred reasons we need to live close. You are my MOTIVATION!!! Have the best weekend. My sister is swinging by to pick Logan, Kenlee & I up for a weekend with my parents! Come have wine with us in Oxford, Alabama!!!

Chrissy + Nate said...

Yaaayy- way to go Faith! You're doing such a great job, keep it up! Although Doritios and daily ice cream servings are my weakness too... They're just too delicious!

Megan said...

You go girl! You look amazing!! I will need all your tips for after baby!!

Pegster said...

Wow, 22lbs, that's amazing. I am looking forward to bikini pics from Vegas.

You, grown up? I think it's going to take more than 30 to get there :). You are way too much fun to be grown up.

Amy said...

Ha! That convo between you and your hubby is hilarious. Your household sounds a lot like mine :) As far as your weight loss goes you are doing great! I need to get on your level. I have only lost three pounds!

So proud of you for sticking to your goal! But..what fun would it have been without a pint of ice cream here or there! Pretty sure my Mr. and I have very similar "convos" as well. Sometimes I even say...."I don't care if you even agree with me..just say that you do!" I'm demented.

Emily Ah Tye said...

Wow, thats awesome! I gained at least 25 after my wedding last year and since about May this year I've lost 15. Totally encouraged to get on that last 10!! You go, girl!

Dana said...

Mrs. Pancakes said...

redwhitebride said...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Great job on the weight loss! You look amazing :)

Jenna said...

I completely agree- I think it would be incredibly fair to devote four days to work and three to pleasure!

And you look AMAZING. Congratulations on losing the weight! 22.5 pounds?! That is absolutely incredible!!!!! Very happy for you! That's such an accomplishment!

SW said...

Sheila said...

Happy Early 30!! I turn 30 in a couple more months so I'm right there with you! We're grown-ups soon! ;)

Ugh.. don't remind me of wedding weight.. I totally know what you mean. I gained like crazy after my wedding last year. I was just telling my Hubs today I need to lay off the junk and get back onto my salad diet like I did for our wedding. haha.. Great job on your weight lost though!! I wish I had more motivation. ;)

You look amazing as usual. Keep up the weight loss, and at the rate you are going, there might be a bun in the oven soon.
