I'm so glad the weekend has officially begun. It has been a typically hectic week & I have a beer in the sun room mini fridge calling my name. I actually picked out Bud Light Lime for the first time & am excited to try it. Yep, that's what my weekends have been reduced to...a night in with the highlight being a new beer to sample. I would not change one thing about my life though, not one! If someone showed up at my door with a time machine and offered me a million dollars to step in and go back to my twenties, I would tell them a giant "thanks, but no thanks". I may be getting older, have a few laugh lines starting to show, have traded my nights out on the town for nights in with Crayola and Barbie, but I can honestly say I wouldn't have it any other way. I LOVE my life, I LOVE my husband & I LOVE my girls! The only thing I don't love is my body weight.

With that said, I am on day 5 of my 30 day challenge and other than the Bud Light Lime calling my name, I have done really well with the calorie intake! I am DONE for the day so I won't be fitting in a work out (other than my arm muscles as I raise my drink), but I will be running at least 30 minutes tomorrow!

The thought for the day: Laziness should be considered a disease. It not only affects you, but everyone around you. I have zero tolerance for capable people that want handouts & expect others to do for them. Get off you a$$ & do it yourself! You will not only be appreciated by others for stepping up, but you can then appreciate yourself.

On that note, I'm off to the back deck to be lazy, relax & enjoy a beer with my hubbs. Goodnight y'all!

Not just for weight loss updates

I made it sound as if the only thing I would be blogging about is my weight loss challenge updates. Not true...I have so much more to share with you! My thought for the night: I have the BEST friends & family. There are times when I want to disown some of them (lol), but at the end of the day I am surrounded by some amazing people in my life!! You know who you are!

Quote of the day: Me - May I speak with Leslie?
Receptionist - She's unavailable, can I take a message?
Me- Yes, my name is Sarah and my number is 785 (interrupted)
Receptionist - Oh, you want her to call you back???
Me- Yep, that's why I'm leaving a message.


Goodnight y'all!


This is my first posting on this particular blog spot. I am a happily married Mother of 2 beautiful daughters. I was a housewife/stay-at-home mom (aka domestic goddess) for over seven years until I decided to join the workforce again June of 2011. I am an Advertising Account Executive & a proud military wife of a Blackhawk Pilot in the US Army. My children are in Kindergarten & Preschool & we are all about spending quality time together as a family!
My oldest daughter is a soccer player which makes me the typical "Soccer Mom" and both of my daughters enjoy ballet & will soon start tap. Needless to say as with most moms, my schedule stays full. I have seen both spectrum's of mommyhood - the full time working mom shuffling kids around to school & practices and the stay at home mom and can honestly say that there is not an easy choice. They're both difficult yet very rewarding!
I am on day 4 of a 30 day weight loss challenge. My "baby weight" has been an issue for me since my soon-to-be 4 year old was born & I am finally stepping away from denial and realizing that you can't blame baby weight 4 years later. I have decided to put an end to this weight fluctuation once & for all! This blog is a means for me to hold myself accountable for my actions in hopes of making it through this challenge with a skinnier me & an overall healthier lifestyle.
Thanks for reading & please feel free to join if you like what you see. I will update regularly (including pictures of before & after.) Stop by any time to check out my stories on "told by sarah"
