My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)



Hello there, ladies and gentlemen... Sorry my blogs have been sporadic at best, and my blog reading is even worse. I have read a couple but haven't had time to leave comments like I love to do.. SIGH! My deadline at work is this Friday, so after that, things will hopefully be better for a few weeks. I'm still training, trying to get my job done, and just dealing with a general overload of work.

I haven't had time to exercise. Kim H, I am going to do the challenge, but I'm going to have to start it on Monday, as I will likely have 10-12 hour days all week, and I don't want to set myself up for failure! Good luck this week, and I'll be joining you next week!

I also might as well be taking caffeine intraveinously. I have been getting venti skinny drinks at Starbucks the past two mornings, and sadly, I only feel halfway awake still. I think a detox is in order once I make it through this week - but until then, I will have my venti and I will smile about it!! LOL

I am not weighing myself this week either. I have always retained water, and especially since I am on a coffee diet and am at my desk about 50-55 hours this week.... again, I don't want to set myself up for failure. I weighed in on Sunday at 158, and as long as I'm back there by this Sunday, all is good! LOL

I've just been living for the weekends lately, and when the weekend is here, I'm nowhere near a computer! I WILL catch up on everyone's lives soon, and get ready to be bombarded with comments when I do! :)

Miss you all!!!

We miss you!!!! If its one thing that I've learned over the last month .... Is ... Take it one day at a time.

You deserve some "You" time. Let's go get a massage.... or a pedicure... :)

Heather said...

It's true, it's true! I miss you too. I miss everyone too! It will slow down. I promise! I'm feeling it too. We'll catch up!

OH, I like Tiff's advice. One day at a time . . .

I'm up for a massage or a pedicure too!

Sorry you are so swamped! Definitely go partake in some "you" time when you can.

Lisa said...

I love the swamped pic! Looks like I feel sometimes! Take care of you and know that you will come out of it unscathed. Good to hear from you.

Seeing as how I am two days behind on reading this myself - you can tell I've been in training for two days this week. GAH! Bow-Ring!

Hang in there girlfriend. I added you to the list so that you can get my daily emails, but we'll be ready when you can start - and I'll hang in there with you until you've completed your 30 days. :-)

Sounds like you are crazy busy. Try not to let it stress you too much. I like coffee too, venti is good. I drink mostly herbal concentrate tea now instead though, helps control my appetite. Have a good weekend.

Hope things are now calmer, Laurie! I am just getting caught up on my blog reading from England, so at least a few of you have been busy and I don't have as much catching up to do as I feared!
