Eye of the Tiger!!!!

This week with WW, I lost 1 pound. I know that does not sound like much, but actually I am very thrilled, cause I had thought I had not lost any weight. I had a few high point days last week and did not exercise as much as the week before, so I just had a feeling I had not lost a pound. So to loose 1 pound was great news. That means I am still on track for my 1 pound a week, bringing my grand total of 3.6 pounds lost in 2 weeks. I am ahead of the game. So as you can see, it really was a lot more than it sounds. Now I start a new week with new goals. This week I want to drink more water, exercise at least 3 days, eat more vegetables with my meals and loose another pound. I have some great recipe ideas I want to try. If they are fantastic than of course I plan to share. So keep checking back.

This weekend was a most wonderful weekend. On Saturday I had almost ALL of my friends here at my house for a huge scrapbook crop. I think there was 10 of us here. I really did find out just how many people I could have at my house to crop at one time. I was really surprised to find out that I could have had even more than 10. My house is very small, but because it has such a open floor plan and because I have a pretty good size scrapbook room, I am able to fit lots of people here to scrapbook. That is so very exciting to know. That means we will be having lots of crops at my house this year and I will be able to invite EVERYONE!!!! YIPPY!!!!

I have to brag just a little bit. My BFF Elizabeth, whom was one of the ones that I missed this weekend, was in a 5K race, in which she FINISHED!!!! YOU GO ELIZABETH!!!! You can read about it on her blog http://texasjoy.blogspot.com/ She is our very own ROCKY BALBOA!!! and we (her friends) are so proud of her!!!!! We will just call her ROCKETTE BALBOA!!!! Cause she really does ROCK!!! This is for you Elizabeth.....

Risin up,
back on the street,
did my time,
took my chances.
Went the distance,
now I'm back on my feet,
just a woman and her will to survive.
So many times
it happens too fast,
you trade your passion for glory.
don't lose your grip

on the dreams of the past,
you must fight
just to keep them alive.
It's the eye of the tiger,
its the cream of the fight.
Risin up to the challenge
of our rivals.
And the last known survivor,
stalks her prey in the night and
she's watching us all with
the eye of the tiger.
Face to face, out
in the heat , hanging
tough, stayin hungry.
The stack, the odds,
still we take to the street
for the kill,
with the skill to survive...
It's the eye of the tiger,
its the cream of the fight,
risin up to the challenge
of our rivals.
And the last known survivor,
stalks her prey
in the night and
she's watching us
all with the
eye of the tiger.
Risin up
straight to the top,
had the guts,
got the glory.
Went the distance,
now I'm not gonna stop,
just a woman and her will to survive.
It's the eye of the tiger,
its the cream of the fight,
risin up to the challenge of our rivals.
And the last known survivor, stalks her prey

in the night, and
she's watching us all
with the eye of the tiger.
The eye of the tiger......The eye of the tiger......The eye of the tiger......

Love ya girl!!!

Lastly, I wanted to say that I am still working on my rag quilt. I am ALMOST done. SHWWWWW!!!! I am in the snipping process now and boy are my fingers, wrist and arm tired. However, the pain will be worth it. I will have a finished project done this week. I am so proud of that fact. I actually went out and bought stuff to make a rag quilt and I actually made the quilt. That is sooooooo huge for me!!!!! Now I am not sure its going to be worthy enough for a craft show though. My squares did not meet up on every corner. I tried hard to make that happen, but sewing through all the layers was very difficult. So I guess I will have to do better on the next one. This one may be a gift or I may just have to keep it since it is my very first quilt EVER!!!! I will take pictures just as soon as I am done and share. Oh and its a 11x12 size. I ended up with a few extra squares and it was enough for another row. It is really going to be the perfect size for a nice cozy nap on the couch. I can't wait!!! Everyone have a great Monday!!!!
