"GO ME" my new life motto!

My cousin is currently moving from Hawaii to Korea (her husband is military) so she stayed in Chicago from October (when her house sold) to just Thursday. Her brother is also military and is currently in Iraq so she wanted to be home for the holidays for the sake and sanity of her mother. Anyway, she had her 2 kids here Roman 2 and Reilly 4. Her brother came home for 2 weeks during her stay and had a rare opportunity to spend some quality time with his beloved niece and nephew. His 2 year old nephew speaks half English, some Korean, and a little Roman so most of the time if you listen you can figure out what he's saying. Anytime Roman's Uncle Danny would pick him up and rough house with him or tickle him Roman would yell "GO ME" as in "let go of me!". It was so cute. We went out drinking and hung out a ton while Danny was in town and our group motto is now "GO ME". It's an awesome motto because it can mean so much and with me starting WW again on Monday and knowing I CAN DO IT, all I have to say is "go me".

I'm starting back to WW on Monday the 2nd. I'm so excited because 2 girls from my neighborhood are going with me AND my workout partner! I'm buying a winter pass that is good from 1/1 to 4/29. This way I'm forced to continue meetings and be accountable!

HAUNTED by old habits and effects.....

Well these last couple weeks I've been eating HORRIBLY and of course Saturday night it all came crashing down on me. I felt so tired like I used to all the time. I never noticed any energy changes while losing weight, but now that I look back..... yeah I used to be tired all the time. I couldn't even get up to change into pj's on Saturday night. It was really bad. I don't want to feel like that. It was so strange because it was like one of those feelings you could almost touch and didn't want to touch. It was such a bad feeling inside me.

Danny came home on Saturday at 4:20!!! It was great. I had the boys and we all piled into the car, picked up some balloons, drove to the airport and waited for him. We got there about 5 minutes before his flight landed. We were allowed to get gate passes so we could meet him as soon as he stepped off the plane. We had signs and banners that Auntie Kathie and Heather had made and I brought the balloons. It was so great to see him. My mom and dad also met us at the airport and then we all went back to Auntie Kathie's and had pizza and just hung out and talked! It was so awesome! He looked really good, very healthy, and happy to be home and be with family. It was a great day.
