Conference Tradition.

tomorrow is my church's general conference. we are lucky and have the BYU channel at home so we don't have to actually go to church to watch it, we can watch it from home, in our PJ's if we so choose (i always so choose). usually we all pick a couch or chair and bring out some blankets and watch it but since our living room is currently empty except for a saw and stack of wood flooring, we will be watching conference downstairs. with a lot more blankets than usual.
another tradition we always partake in is this,

cinnamon rolls that i generally make

and chocolate milk, which i generally pass on (gag me).
however things are different this time around, no cinnamon rolls for me :(. instead i'll be enjoying some of these:
that's a carrot. ask me how i feel about that. i just have to keep telling myself that gross nasty cinnamon roll would only be delicious for about 5 minutes then it would be gone, well not really gone, it would be on my thighs for the next 24 years. i have to keep chanting, "a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips."
that is my life folks. i'm actually not as bitter as i'm portraying right now. i'll be healthy while everyone else stuffs themselves.
tomorrow is also Easter so i will be partaking in some company potatoes and honey glazed ham, that's right, i said honey glazed. whatareyougoingtodoaboutit? that will be my little pseudo cheat then monday it's back to phase 1 to get this thing working faster! well maybe phase two, i do enjoy a slice of whole wheat bread once a day.
my lunch the last few days has been a handful of carrots and a string cheese, i'll be opening my restaurant in June, i'm trying to train myself to eat out of necessity, not out of habit or want. it's hard. but i am determined.

p.s. that picture is for my aunt jeanie, there ya go!
p.s.s. please don't see the movie, The Box, dumbest movie EVER.
p.s.s.s. i haven't gotten out of my yoga pants all day
p.s.s.s.s. boston rob was cheated! cheated i tell you!!!!!!! let's not talk about it.
p.s.s.s.s.s. i totally dyed easter eggs today and i plan on hunting for them tomorrow ;)
p.s.s.s.s.s.s. i realllllly don't want to eat this starburst sitting next to me...right?!

Amanda! Your face is so much slimmer!
I love the itty bitty carrot! I joined and have been keeping a food journal (I have always refused another journal in my life) BUT I've been doing real well in recording everything. In 2 1/2 weeks I've lost 6 pounds. I love their articles. It is helping me understand foods better. I, too, am eating a lot more veggies and fruits which have always made me feel better and helped me lose weight.
I'm so proud for your weight loss. I want to be down 50 pounds total before I get home next summer. I would say "Let's have a competition" but hands-down your way ahead of me. However, my dear sweet niece, you are my inspiration!! Keep the blogging, I love your writing and I love you!
