Triple-T Time Baby!

Ten Things Thursday brought to you by the hilarious and always lovely Laura Belle from Beer, Dogs, and Getting Healthier. Have you checked her out yet? I tell you every week! ;)

1.I'm super jelly... why? Because all my blogger babes are meeting up this weekend for BOOBS! I want to wish everyone safe travels and please...PLEASE, have a super awesome fantastico great time! Oh, and have a cocktail for me, k? Thanks! 
(for those of you wondering why i'm talking about boobs, please visit Band Of Outrageous Babes...get it? BOOBS? )

2. Next year I WILL be at BOOBS. I will...

3. Tuesday was me and The Hubs 8th wedding anniversary...wowza...8 YEARS! Seems like yesterday. I din't get to see him at all on our actually anniversary, he didn't get home from work until about 1 am :(
But my mom and g-ma agreed to watch the girls last night so we could go out and celebrate. Which leads into #4

4. I wore a dress I haven't been able to wear in a long time... and actually for the first time ever it fit the way it was supposed to. Total NSV for sure. I looked at myself in every mirror I could...twirled around a bit, smiled wide. It was awesome! I would have taken a pic but the camera on my phone doesn't work and our DSLR was on the fritz last night. Just take my word, I looked delish lol. We went and saw The Possession and it was actually a lot better than I thought it was going to be. Nothing crazy special but the acting was good, the story line was good, good visuals. It was good! Dinner...oh dinner... geeze it was good. We went to a restaraunt at Lake Lotawana called Marina Grog and Galley. Pricey..but oooohhh so good! The Hubs ordered a dry aged 8 oz filet mignon and I ordered the Hawaiian Snapper... was soo good I didn't want to stop eating..but I did, like a good little bandster :) I only ate about 1/3 of it. But i'm munching on it right now for lunch and it tastes just as delicious!
This was mine, the Hawaiian Snapper, it really did look just like this..mmmm..
5.My restriction is lasting much longer this time! I think i'm finally feeling what a bandster is supposed to feel! I'm learning how to START my meal much slower. My mistake is my first couple of bites it's almost like I forget I have the lap-band and just take a normal bite, chew it a little and swallow. Um...OUCH MUCH? Yeah, I don't think it's a "stuck" I think it's more of a "woah nelly...slow down" warning. I get a pain in my shoulder and it feels like it's taking it's sweet ass time going down. I stop... breathe... give it a few minutes and then continue...taking LITTLE bites...and CHEWING a million times. The rest of the meal is always a success! I just have to keep reminding myself..."little bites, chew chew chew!!" Each meal is getting better :)

6.I'm a-scared of tomorrow monring... a-scared of the scale. I've been eating well, much smaller portions but each morning the scale isn't really moving. I'm hoping and praying I lose SOMETHING this week. We shall see...I PROMISE I will post my weigh in this week since I missed last week. 

7.We bought The Avengers on tuesday... can't wait to watch it! Probably best movie of the year... loved it (well, Batman was flippin awesome too..mmm...i'm torn) Hopefully I can take a break from The Lorax tonight since it's been on loop in my house since we bought it!

8.I'm doing The Color Run in Lawrence on 10/6. Have I started training? Negative. Am I going to finish it even if I collapse and die? Yup. I'm gonna do it.. I'm gonna jog when I can, walk when I can't, and puke whenever I need to. It looks like so much fun, I can't wait!

9.Monster Rehab Orangeade is delicious. I keep them to a minimum like 1 every month or so. Today I wanted a break from coffee so I got one. Mmmm... yum and only 20 cals for the whole can.

10. Did I mention I'm jealous of all you going to BOOBS? Oh I did? My bad! I can't wait to see all the posts from you guys. I'm living vicariously through you while I do just about nothing this weekend :)


  1. I've heard such great things about those color runs. Can't wait for pictures!

  2. I wish I was going to BOOBS too. :(
