A Positive First Day!!

Before I begin, I have to post a picture of little Ava, just because she is so darn cute :)
She is doing great at home, at work and with her "sister" Laker!!

OK, so, I was going to begin my 2 week experiment yesterday, (click here if you haven't read my latest idea) but we celebrated my daughters birthday, and although I could have had my 3 meals and incorporated her birthday cookie cake in my day, I, like usual, went over board, so we just wont talk about that :)

So, here we go........

My weight as of this morning......Don't mind my bad paint job on my toes, I quickly painted them Sunday morning before church, because I forgot to do them the night before.

  Anyway, I wanted to post my starting weight so I could see what if anything will happen.  This is pretty bad considering I WAS doing OK, and I DO have a Christmas goal to get to.  Once again, a gain, and there isn't much more to say about that.  

Today has been a good first day.  I actually had a breakfast.  Eggs and toast with real OJ.  For lunch, Ava and I went to Walmart and went to Subway and I had a 6 inch turkey sub with veggies on wheat bread, and for dinner I will probably get something out with Blayne, because we are going to see a movie.  I feel satisfied so far, but I haven't smelled the popcorn yet.......

Today is a new day!  I am healthy, I am positive, and very thankful for who I am and all that I have!   Nothing can bring me down :) 


"Being positive doesn't mean ignoring the negative, 
being positive means overcoming the negative."


  1. Love the quote at the end! Ava's collar is the cutest ever!! Love it.

  2. Love the quote :)) I will make it as profile picture on (whatsapp)
    In Asia we have whatsapp instead of facetime (non iphone users)
    And, Ava looks so pretty happy week xx

  3. Ava seems to be settling in quite comfortably and getting spoiled :) (My cats are spoiled too!)

  4. Love that quote. Yay for breakfast! I always feel off on days that I get busy and skip right over it.

  5. I have been thinking quite a bit about food lately too. I don't want to be obsessed about every little thing I eat for the rest of my life. I want to find a new normal. I am looking forward to hearing more about your experiment as it unfolds.

  6. Awesome quote!!!!!!

    You faced the number on the scales and you have a plan. One bad day (birthday party) is just that. One bad choice. Move on and show the world the woman inside that is ready to soar!!!!

  7. I love that quote - it's something that I need to remind myself of often! Ava is a cutie pie!!! Also - great job on taking a baseline so you can measure progress. I want to hear more! Good luck!
