Weekend Recap, 15lbs down!

I had a pretty fabulous weekend,

 

I hope you all did as well. My weekend consisted of participating in my Company’s annual Junior Achievement Bowl – a – Thon, and marathon movie watching. Saturday I woke up at 6am, I am finding that it is rare I sleep in on Saturday, due to all of the commitments I take up. Ah, the life of a responsible, active adult. The Bowl – A – Thon is an annual event that helps raise funds for Junior Achievement, a community outreach program, that teaches children how the economy, and community tie together. I have had the pleasure of working with them for 4 years now, and I was this years Team Captain. We raised $900 dollars plus for the program, and we had a blast bowling!  Here is a picture:

After all that good fun, I went home and watched a boat load of movies! My dog of course, I had to play fetch with him every now and then, but he was pretty much sleep the entire time. I posted a funny picture of him on IG too. I ended that day pretty much sleeping. Sunday, I went to the Dog Park and Gizmo got humped profusely by this male Poodle mix. He was so annoyed. I love the dog park, it is an excellent way to connect with other dog lovers. I enjoy it. I ended my day by watching True Blood, RHNJ, Ray Donovan, Newsroom, and Tia and Tamera. All good shows. Also! I have lost 15 lbs to date. Exciting. I am only 7lbs away from my goal weight! (175!!!) I am too excited. 175 is pretty skinny for a 6 foot woman. I can’t believe at the beginning of the year I was 2lbs away from 200! :-O Scary. Change has come and is here to stay!
