And it's not even my Birthday!

I'm sure I've mentioned it before but I have the best Big Man in the world!! Look what was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday...a 16GB I-Pod-Touch!!

I'm not quite sure exactly what I did to deserve such an unexpected and amazing gift! (I wonder what I have to do to get a new Bernina 440 QE with BSR?)--just joking Big Man.

Look, he even got it engraved with my name, cell number and 32.5!

Now I have to learn how to use the freaking thing, technology is not my strong suit. One guess on what my first movie download will be........"Twilight" you say.....that's right, just think Edward at my fingertips wherever and whenever!

This is just the GIANT spider that has made a huge web across my backyard sun tent. I feel so bad that I'm going to destroy all his web crafting, but I almost walked into it a few times already....the scream would/is going to be insane when I actually forget and plow straight into it.

32point5 One Year Later

The year is over in the 32point5 plan. To recap, I wanted to see what exactly it is that I do all my time with the intention of reaching a waist size of 32.5 inches.

I should have called it the 33point25 plan. Sadly I was off by 3/4 of an inch, however pretty good considering the starting number was 38. I know, disgusting!

Comparing the pictures above I have on the same shorts and belt. What you can't see is that I was actually holding it in in the first picture, the pants were unbuttoned and the belt was tight. I'm relaxed in the after picture, fully buttoned up and the belt on the last available spot.

These pictures don't really show much of a comparison other than I am a lot happier and physically fitter. Exercise has become a part of my daily routine, I now enjoy long walks, running on the treadmill and tennis. I've always thought that I eat well, however I still struggle with portion control.

I especially have to Thank my Big Man. He is constantly my biggest supporter. Some days were tough and he was always there to kick my ass and motivate me to keep going. He's my own personal "Tommy Europe", the white chocolate kind -- Smooches!!

Finally, what better way to celebrate the end of a great year....with home made Bumble-berry pie! Best part is half of it is still in the freezer....see portion control.

Thanks to everyone that took the time to read my blog. I will still be posting; it's been nice to realize that my life is not as boring and lame as I thought it was.
