allow me to re-introduce myself...

My name is Misti and I've been a bad, bad blogger the last couple of weeks. Let's see... what's been going on...

Rebecca had a big birthday on the 14th (she turned 30!!!) so we had a big bash in her honor. First we went to a great Mexican restaurant, El Matador, and ate entirely too much. Then we headed over to Q-Zar to play laser tag! Oh. my. gosh! I don't remember the last time I've had so much fun! I was a little hesitant to play as I'm not terribly athletic, but it was great! I think the teens who are in there every weekend weren't quite sure what to expect when this group of 30 & 40 somethings descended on their evening. We all played well together though & had a great time! What a workout! I was so sore on Sunday! After laser tag, Rebecca, Laurel, Sandy, Pam, Lisa & I went to Rebecca's apartment for a movie night. We decided to watch Step Up 2: The Streets and by the time we put it on it was already 2:00 am!!! The acting wasn't great, but the movie was entertaining overall. We were all quite tired, and therefore quite silly, by the time it was over. Not ones to let a little thing called exhaustion get in our way we then went to Atlanta Diner for "breakfast"... at 5:00 am! Oddly enough there were actually people out & about at that crazy time. After breakfast the tiredness took over & we all decided to head on home for some sleep. Thank goodness Lisa was driving, I don't think I could've made it otherwise. I got home at about 7:45a & slept until 12:45p. I'm way too old to be staying up all night long. But I'd do it again in a heartbeat to get to hang out with my friends like that. We had a great time!

Today I had my weekly weigh in at Weight Watchers. Quite honestly, I was expecting to have gained like 2 pounds. The past couple of weeks I've really been struggling with snacking after dinner. I would do so good all day then after Jonathan was in bed I'd just start eating random stuff. I was really worried that I was going to get off track & not be able to get back on. It's happened before & I couldn't let it happened again. I asked my mom, dad & Chris to help me by keeping me on track if they see me mindlessly snacking. It seemed that just taking that step really helped alot. I've stayed within my points yesterday & today. Well, actually, today I haven't even had all of them yet. I still have 4.5 left & am not sure what to do with them. Anywho... I go weigh in today and lost 1.6 pounds!!! What? I was absolutely shocked. That puts my total weight loss at 49.8! Dang that .2! I'm so excited that I'll get to celebrate 50 pounds lost next week. That's halfway to my ultimate goal!!! I feel like I've got my focus back and can continue my journey with my goal in sight.

Tomorrow we will be officially joining Lawrenceville Church of God. I feel so blessed that we've finally found a church to call home. The people are great and you can really feel God's presence there. I look forward to getting more involved & building more great relationships.

Well, I guess that's about it for now. I'll try not to fall off the face of the earth again...

Hey! You can't be too old to stay out all night. I'm older than you and I'm not too old. Maybe because I'm single without kids I have more energy. ;-)

Congrats on the big 50!!!!
