Bladcoxerson WW Contest Update 2

Goodbye 1.8 pounds. Hello Bladcoxerson grand prize! (Hey, it is fifty bucks)

Current stats: 4.1 pounds lost; 2.4% body weight lost

A Fair to Remember

Yum... fried cheese...
Going...
Going...
Gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We had a fun time at the fair. I kept to my WeightWatchers plan: 1 fried cheese, 1/2 Indian taco, and Cotton Candy. For dinner, 0 points soup!
And Van's new girlfriend. I'm afraid she was using him for his snazzy pacifier!

This is Oklahoma Football

Bladcoxerson WW Contest Update 1

Monday was my first weigh-in for the Bladcoxerson WW Contest. I lost 2.3 pounds. That is a total of 1.3% of body percentage lost. (If I am remembering how to calculate percentages right. I am so not smarter than a 5th grader, especially during my lunch break. How did I ever get an A in calculus?)

Goal for this week: Ditch the maternity clothes. Sure they're comfortable with ultra-stretchy waistbands, but they sure don't promote weight loss or fashion. What spurred this action? A commercial for What Not to Wear where Stacey and Clinton are bashing a woman for wearing her maternity clothes with a 2 year old! I don't want to be that lady! Of course, I will always accept a $5,000 Bank of America Visa gift card. Christmas gift, anyone?

Cake Stand

Goodbye week-old shower cake, you are about to make your trip to the trash can (if Derek actually wheeled it back to the house after four days!). We had some good times, especially at the shower honoring the upcoming marriage of my good friend Charly (who by-the-way needs to start her own blog). But, the cake must go because I have a competition to win.


Oh yes, my WeightWatchers buddies are having a reverse New Year's Resolution Contest. What is that you ask? We are competing who can lose the most percentage of their body weight by January 1. The future losers include Liz "Belly Buster" Blais and John "Old Man" Anderson. I'm not sure if the spouses are participating, but they are more than welcome.

As it is game day, I will give you the keys that will win me the game. 1) Have Derek find a quality cheap treadmill on craigslist. 2) Utilize new baby alarm clock (5:30 am wake-up time) to get in a morning workout, and make good use of my personal trainer husband. 3) Remain a quiet competitor. Post consistent numbers across the board without committing any penalties, aka mass quantities of chips and salsa/queso and Dr. Pepper.

Here are some pictures of the shower:




And your moment of zen:



Aaron Tuttle Who?

I'm watching the Justin Timberlake special on HBO On Demand. All I can say is, Aaron Tuttle who?

The Right Stuff

Please indulge me in a minute of proving to my husband that my factual accuracy is impeccable. This weekend we traveled to Texas, which left us a lot of time to bicker in the car, and he questioned me on these two facts:
