Anyway, things are great. I have a lot to update you all on! All in due time.
Have a beautiful day, lovelies!

I am LOVING SFT, ladies! With SFT, you get 49 Weekly Points to use on non-power foods, like peanut butter and salad dressing. This week? I lost 1.8 pounds! SFT takes a little more planning -- no fast food runs! -- but I feel so...simply filled!

Look at all those green triangles! DANG! This has probably been my best day on SFT. Just, uh, ignore that Pepsi. And refuse to acknowledge the fact that I'm 6 PPs in the hole. Whatever! I can exercise that off in no time!
I need to lose, like, 5.2 pounds this week. I changed my goal to 150, and I weighted in at 155.2 on Saturday morning. BUT I did eat Chinese food on Friday night, and I did not make a poo on Saturday morning, and I'm betting that I had two pounds of Chinese food salt bloat and 3.2 pounds of poo in my body. Goal weight re-achieved.

I'm loving Simply Filling! The turkey ziti
I made Sunday night was AMAZING and reheated very nicely. It had about a serving of veggies in every serving! There are so many options for Simply Filling meals that I can't wait to try out.
So excited for spin class tonight...I am going to use every single one of those AP's for peanut butter!

There have been some big happenings at Meredith HQ this week!
I'm raising my goal weight. Maybe this is a cop out. I am really struggling with not eating 5,000 Points per day, and I need to give myself a break and just be at or around goal. On Saturday, I will raise my goal to 150.
I'm working for Weight Watchers. It's official! I'm a receptionist! Now I start training and all that fun stuff. I'm ecstatic. I want to bring the joy of Weight Watchers to everyone I meet!
I'm switching to Simply Filling. There has been something obviously missing from my tracker as of late -- those green triangles. I have been eating some Power Foods, but I'm going to switch to SFT to retrain my brain to chose healthy, filling foods more often. I need a break from tracking, and I need some wins.
I'm planning out my meals. I have all my meals planned (including eating out over the weekend!), plus I have a shopping list and recipes all written out, too. All of the recipes follow SFT!
I'm buying tickets. YES! Boy Friday and I have finally made a decision and purchased our tickets to Austin! #ATX2014 We will be arriving Thursday, February 13 and departing early on Monday, February 17. So very excited to see all of you!
What's new with you?

My original post got deleted. In summation: I wore the dress and looked awesome. Boy Friday and I danced all night and stayed up talking when we got back. My interview was rescheduled for Friday, and the territory manager and I really connected. She said that I would be great for Weight Watchers and asked if I had ever considered being a leader and encouraged me to apply for a corporate job, too.

There comes a time in every young woman's life where she must say to herself: "Haters, be da.mned! This dress is tight, short, and cute, but you are also tight and cute. You are going to a club in Detroit. Get your fancy on!"
I originally bought this
for my cousin's wife's bachelorette party, and I didn't wear it because it was too tight and short and the cut outs didn't let me wear tights (which were part of the dress code for the bachelorette party) or a bra (which aligns with my personal code of integrity). But I'm going to ROCK it tomorrow night and dance all night with my brother, the birthday boy!

I had a lovely weekend planned. Healthy food, exercise, homework, and art projects. And then? Tragedy struck in the form of the Hangover Fairy. Friday was great! After work, I walked Keeps, then Boy Friday and I met up with some coworkers for drinks. I had two Ketel martinis. I want to throw up just typing that. Friday night was not pretty, and Saturday morning was not much better. I needed to buy dog food, so I headed into town and stopped at McDonald's on the way. I only bought food for Boy Friday, but I got a large, delicious, hangover annihilating Coke. I spent a lot of the morning laying in bed and praying for Satan to take me home.
Saturday night was the big Halloween party! Boy Friday was a Pan Am pilot and I was a Pan Am stewardess. We're big sillies, so we came up with back stories for our characters. I was Candy, originally from Dallas, a young woman who wanted to be an actress but got recruited for Pan Am out of high school (did Pan Am really recruit from high schools or is that just something I learned from Catch Me If You Can?). Boy Friday is a creative genius, and we made Pan Am cups. So I had a tray full of Pan Am cups, candy, napkins...and airplane shots! The Hangover Fairy did not allow me to enjoy them, and I almost vommed when someone asked me what kind of shots I had. But we looked SO ADORABLE! And that body? Is banging.
Also? My phone interview went really well yesterday! I have an in-person one on Thursday. This is a HUGE, long-term, and strategic opportunity. How can I cram all of my passion for Weight Watchers into one interview?

My weekends have been completely NUTS lately, and I've been letting that derail me. NO MORE, I SAY!
1) Stay within my DPs.
2) Stay off the pop.
3) Meal plan and grocery shop.
4) Hit the gym -- run Saturday and spin Sunday.
5) Eat only when hungry.
6) Read Beat Sugar Addiction NOW!
Um, yes, I SPIN NOW. It's amazing! And Boy Friday joined the gym with me and that means I get to sing to him while we spin. The instructor (who is just adorable) always plays "God Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts.
Other exciting news? I have an interview with Weight Watchers on Monday to be a receptionist! I would have applied for a leader position, but I'm not at goal...which makes me think I should just be a **** and adjust my goal weight by five pounds to 150. Anyway, this is a great opportunity to get into Weight Watchers! It's a dream of mine to work for a company that I love so much!
I will probably have a gain this week...and probably adjust my goal.
The picture is from Wednesday. Cute as h.ell.
