Wee Bit Thursday (I missed it Wednesday!)

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today I'm linking up with Leigh Ashley for Wee Bit Wednesday (in my case, Thursday) and Mr. & Mrs. Smith for the Jiggle Challenge! Ready for some fun questions, learning about my trials and tribulations with weight loss? I hope so because I'm writing all about it either way :)

{one} what profession have you always admired?
Teachers! I used to always think that their jobs weren't really that difficult. Until I started working closely with a Christian Academy as a receptionist.  I saw that these teachers do a job that most people would never be willing to do.  It takes a special person to have that much love and patience for children!

{two} what would the title of your memoir/biography be if it was written today?
"Happiness in Heartache: Finding Joy in the Ups and Downs of Life". It pretty much sums up how I try to live my life by seeing the positive even when negative seems to be closing in all around.

{three} how far do you commute to work?
I commute about 3 miles to and from work four days a week. I love that I have 3-day weekends!

{four} are your earlobes attached or detached?

{five} do you eat the unpopped kernels of popcorn at the bottom of the bag?
No! they are so hard I didn't know anyone actually ate them lol

{six} what is the strangest gift you’ve ever received?
An elderly woman that my mom was friends with used to give me a pack of underwear for Christmas from the time I was 8 until I was 12 years old!

{seven} what is one tv show that you wish hadn’t been cancelled?
Ugly Betty!

{eight} what is something that you are saving money for right now?
A 6-day cruise to Mexico, Jamaica and the Bahamas!

{nine} what hobby would you like to take up?
Scrapbooking. I was so amazing at it, if I do say so myself, but laziness got the best of me so I would love to start up again.

{ten} how many times a year do you get really dressed up?

Maybe 2-3 times a year to go to weddings but even then it's not like I wear ballgowns.  

Now for the Jiggle Challenge.....

Weight Loss Challenge

I am unsure whether to be happy or not to report that I have neither gained nor lost a SINGLE pound!!! It's great that at least my weight loss  hasn't been sabotaged by another pesky pound being added onto me but at the same time I am sad that I haven't been able to say goodbye to more of my fat :(
Oh well...I'm still not giving up because this week the hubby has been a huge help in encouraging me to lose the weight by agreeing to get me a 6-day cruise for my graduation present in December!! If that's not motivation right there then I don't know what is! Also, he has been eating healthier with me and we both discovered that eating the right foods can actually be a lot more fun than we thought.  We enjoy time together while he grills everything and it gives an excuse to eat dinner under our new gazebo :)  He also got this amazing protein drink that I have been making with mixed berries for breakfast in the morning so I'm expecting some great results very soon!

love always,
