Well…dammit. What's going on here? Is this a plateau? What gives? I've been stuck at 227 for a long time. Over the holidays I was grateful to maintain, but this week I know I've done everything exactly right…calories, water, exercise. My clothes are getting looser by the day, so I'm going to try not to stress about it, but it would be good to see the number on the scale go down too.

Other than this morning's encounter with the scale, it has been a phenomenal day. First off, it's 60° and sunny. Just gorgeous. This is more like it. I love Arkansas because we truly experience all 4 seasons (sometimes in the same week), but that super cold weather was getting old quickly. Tomorrow is supposed to be the exact same.

I had to be at our high school this morning at 8:15 to read questions for a big Quiz Bowl tournament. I really enjoy doing that. It's kind of like being Alex Trebek for a few hours. I played Quiz Bowl in high school and it's always been one of my favorite things. This morning's tournament was absolutely huge, with something like 25 schools competing. I read questions for the first four games in the morning, and I just can't get over how smart those kids are. It was really impressive.

After I got done, I headed to Little Rock to shop for the BFF's birthday present. I absolutely love shopping for Rachel. I know exactly what she likes, so it's super easy to buy for her. It's almost as much fun as buying things for myself! I hope she likes the things that I got her.

John and I are getting ready to head to dinner and buy groceries for the week. We're planning on having a nice relaxing night at home.

And because I know how I am, there is a 100% likelihood that I will weigh myself again tomorrow morning just to see what's up. I'll keep you posted! Thanks for reading. :)


  1. Time to shake it up! Change eating/exercise, etc. I stalled out right around the same spot. Keep it up, babe. You are doing AWESOME.

  2. I HATE getting stuck!! I'm stuck now. I'll take Chuckles advice too and I will change it up too. Maybe I should stop eating ice cream. Hmmmm
