for some reason, max likes to chew on my flipflops so i thought i would share... :o)

well, today's weigh-in was better than expected - only a 1.6 gain so i call my vacation a success... considering i drank everyday, didn't do any jogging, enjoyed s'mores by the campfire twice, and over indulged a bit this past weekend - i'm ready to move on and reach my next goal... i would like to lose 5 pounds by my friend's wedding on august 11... :o)

speaking of goals - i'm sharing a weightloss challenge with kim... she received an overwhelming response to her challenge (27+) so i offered to help out and lead one of the teams... each week, kim and i will share everyone's progress on our blogs and at the end of 12 weeks, whichever team loses the most weight (percentage-wise) will win... i told her we are ALL winners anyway so lets use that term lightly, okay? as soon as i get my team's info, i will post everything on here - let's have some fun with this... :o)

product review: before we left on vacation, i picked up some sugar-free margarita mix and let me tell you - it was awesome... even eric commented on how good it was so if you like that sort of thing, check out their website... they also have flavors like: blue raspberry martini, mojito, pina colada, and wild strawberry margarita - just to name a few... you can find out what stores in your area sell them too so check it out... :o)

happy hump day...

p.s. i found a beautiful, short, black slip/robe last night at macy's - it has tiny pink flowers on it but not too many that makes it busy, if you know what i mean... my friend is petite and italian so i think it will look stunning on her - white just seemed too stark...

Cute picture! Sounds like you had a great vacation!

BTW, thanks for the Baja Bob's info, too -- I will have to try the mojito mix and sour mix!

I would call that a success too! It will be gone before you know it.

Congrats on the WI, I would definately consider that a successful vacay. The little ensemble you got your girlfriend sounds just perfect, I'm sure she will LOVE it. :)

Great job on the After-vacation WI! You did great! I always gain at least 5 lbs after a vacation, it always comes off quickly though because most of it is water weight but still!
Cute kitty!!
I think the challenge thing sounds great! You would be a great team leader for sure!

Hey Congrats on the weigh in! I know it sounds bad to congratulate on a gain, but that's a small gain for a week away, so good job!

Can't wait for the challenge, it will be fun, It would be cool if I'm on your team, we can kick butt together :)

Wooo hoo for only a small gain, you cat is mad, and I agree about Kims Challenge Re: Winner.... you will all be winners if you stick to your diets and lose weight. Good luck to everyone.

And I'm all over that sugar free margarita mix. And good luck with the team challenge!

Super w/i results after vacation! I can only hope I will be so lucky when I weigh in on Tuesday!

Thanks for the margarita mix info, but it looks like another one of those great products that we Canadians aren't allowed to have! boo!
