iPad Fever

OK, so listen to this. Since I didn't buy myself anything special for my 40th birthday last year, I decided to buy something special for my 41st. I bought an iPad. Not just the regular iPad, but the iPad 2.


FEDEX delivered it today. I couldn't wait to open up the box and play with it. I quickly finger tapped my way to the App Store and bought Words With Friends. I signed on, but then I realized I didn't know how to request someone to play with me. I finally figured out a way to connect with my sister and MSH.

I drank the Kool-Aid and I loved it.

There's so much to do on there and all I can do is play a silly word game.

The best word game ever!!

Weeks 4 and 5 with Weight Watchers

I started my fifth week and I'm not off to a good start. Our theme dinners are inadvertently killing my points. They take place on Wednesdays which happens to be the beginning of my weekly point tracking. The food is delicious and I try to watch my portions, but when you see lasagna, green bean casserole, and pasta (just to name a few) all intelligent reasoning goes away.

Last night, after having a tamale at a school function I went to my mother's for dinner where she fed me a nice hearty piece of steak. Tsk, tsk. I don't feel guilty for eating, but I feel disappointed that I faltered. Not too bad, though, because I enjoyed every bite.

My last weigh-in was Wednesday morning and I came in at 177.5 lbs. Five more pounds till I hit my 10% goal! I'll keep you updated.
