OSB - Week 4

I wish I could tell you all the great things I've done to shed "x" amount of pounds and woohoo I'm SO on track!!! However, the eating right and exercising kinda feel off as of last Wednesday......I went to Atlanta. While I could give you excuses like, my routine got all out of whack and its the time of the month where I simply MUST have dark chocolate and BBQ chips......... But, I won't. I am accountable for what I put into my body. As I said before I'm an all or nothing kind of girl, so last week was nothing and this week, I'll "try" to give it my ALL, again. Ok so I gained a pound and a half this week. Not a huge deal (pardon the pun) but enough to let me know I really need to get back on track.

In other news, Ms. Random Moments inspired me to go from novice jewelry maker to an earring making diva. I have been on these hour long conference calls where my boss does all the talking and I am mainly there to take notes on what my customers want, answers to questions they have, etc. So, I have to listen enough to answer questions and provide information. No following up on emails, quoting accounts, or whatever can be done, because those actually require my focus. So, I decided to make earrings while on my calls. Oh the beauty of working from home. anyhoo, I have made 17 pairs of earrings over 3 conference calls. The hard part is going to be parting with them. More on that later, because I have to ask Ms. Moments how to take proper pictures of my craft. I suggest heading over to her page, she has some VERY cute items for sale and is currently running a contest.

I'm considering have a little contest of my own, but what I need is a pretty big request, therefore needs a big prize......More on that later as well.

I would love to see pictures of your earrings. That is really neat. Good luck with staying on track this week (OSB wise).

Stopping by from OSB!

As far as BBQ chips go, I love Mr Krispers! I find mine at either Fresh Market or Whole Foods, but they are great and you get like 35 chips for 120 calories! There are the BEST I've found!

So hey, although I absolutely loved your comment on how good I look for having had four kids - I must confess that I only gave birth to two. ha ha ha They're all MINE but only two by birth. For details on that, you can read the left column where it says "meet my family" and you'll get "the rest of the story". But still, thanks for the compliments!
