Excuses, excuses

So I should be blogging. I know it. I should be telling you all the reasons why I have blown it this week, and how I hate exercise, and probably peed my pants doing it.

But I can't tell you that.

Cause Charlie's got her groove back.

Oh, yes, my friends, a letter from my friend Tara threw on a lightswitch, and I'm working this diet- FULL TILT AND BOOGY.

So, after ending Sunday on a yucky 179, I am down to a 176.4 and very very happy about it. Because this is not me trying to pad the numbers and feel better about myself. I am going back down, and there's no stopping me now.

My friend April and I have a project in the works, and we are going to run a biggest loser type contest. Except it's for Bloggers only. We are working on the rules and regulations at the moment, but here's the skinny.

Bloggers can apply for 3 available contest seats. (I'll let you know when we open up to accept the applications.) You will work from where you are to lose the weight. And blog about it. And VIDEO yourself doing things. (Nothing that will require you to buy something. Mostly we are thinking pushups or some physical challenge. ) We are going to make a weekly show about it, and readers can come to a main site to see your progress and the progress of others in the contest.

And we CANNOT WAIT to get this party started.

I guess that's why I am so pumped and working the diet thing. Cause I don't need those first 3 week issues working against me. Nope. I want to win this thing.

IF YOU have a business and want to contribute, let us know! We will be linking up any one who donates a prize for the kitty. On the main website and the 6 bloggers who participate. But there will be 2 winners, so plan on a prize you can comfortably provide 2 of. If you want to do that- email me at with the words CONTEST PRIZE in the subject line. We appreciate anything you can throw at us.

SO that's the word. We got stuff cooking. And it's all diet approved.

How has your week been?

This must have been the week for losing. I was down 3.4 lbs (well, technically, that's a 2 1/2 wk amount, but who cares?). Yeah for us!!
