Meet Me in St. Louis!

I'm writing this from 10,000 feet and climbing as I head to Dallas and then on to St. Louis/Mt. Vernon for the weekend. I'm taking a long weekend to spend with Corrie, doing some wedding stuff, but mostly just quality time with my best friend.

I got to the airport early today, and hoped to get on the 1:30 flight (instead of 2:20) to Dallas; I only have 50 minutes in between flights, which made me nervous. I was incredibly peeved when the gate agent told me that it would cost $75. Seriously?!?! If you have seats let people have them! Turns out I'm actually better off. I may only have 50 minutes in between, but I'm flying on the same plane! That seriously never happens. I'm going to have to get off in Dallas because the crew is switching (I think), but at least I won't have to run to a new gate. How convenient. Thanks American... For once.

This was a pretty good week weight loss wise. I could have been better on what I ate, and I could have worked out more, but can't you say that every week? I'm definitely pleased, down 3.5 lbs from last week, and finally negative on the year. Considering that I had a complete breakdown last night and was crying to Sakief that I'm a failure, that I will never lose the weight I want to lose, etc, I'm now in much higher spirits (and literally quite high, we've reached our cruising altitude).

As much as I am mentally back in the game for meal time, I'm having trouble with snacking and controlling my sweets (particularly chocolate) cravings. I'm really going to have to go cold turkey if I'm ever going to be fully back on track. Forget I think I can, I know I can :)

Sakief and I are back to meal planning, and as you might be able to tell from my several recipe posts, eating well! Do yourself a favor and try both of the recipes I posted this past week, they are seriously amazing. I want more soup and burgers! Jared and Ashleigh tried the soup earlier this week, and I got a good report from Jared. Always nice to hear that food your recommend goes over well with others.

Sakief and I are also two weeks from moving into our new apartment (yay!) and he starts classes on Monday. It's a very exciting time for us. If only those two weeks would move a little quicker... We are both so over my current place.

To new and wonderful things in 2013! Cheers!
