I'm STILL here!!!

I know, I know!! I've TOTALLY slacked on the postin' lately, but I'm still here! I'm motivated as ever and can't wait to weigh in for HFH this Friday. I'm really hoping to put up good numbers. I can't believe I missed the last weigh in. What's even more horrible? I haven't posted here forever!! I need to get into the habit of writing here daily!! Even if it's ramblings full of scatter brained thoughts, at least I'm posting! Maybe I should start a food journal. Ya ,that'd be good. Can you all tell I'm tired!?!

Anyways, I'm super excited and motivated as I think I'm gonna hit my mini goal by my birthday! I'm focused and determined and GONNA DO IT!

BUT, my main reason for busting this post out is to say this: I AM SO SORRY I HAVEN'T BEEN BY SOME OF YOUR BLOGS!! I HONESTLY love LOVE all your sweet comments and you truly help to motivate me. I know I LOVE getting comments and I need to return the love! I'm gonna try really hard to get around to all the people's blog's who have commented as well as my blog roll! IF FOR SOME REASON I'VE MISSED YOU, DO NOT be afraid to point this fact out to me. Don't be afraid to say: "Um, hello rude head, why don't you come share some love on my blog and give me some motivation?"  I'm ALL ears and I PROMISE to do better at updating on this blog and responding to all your WONDERFUL comments!

Anyways, enough with that. Right now, I'm down for this week and I'm feeling great. I really hope to have a super fantastic weight number on my drivers license when I get it renewed. Ya ya, I know you can lie and most people do, but I want to be truthful and I want to be HAPPY with the true weight I put down!

Alright, I'm done rambling for now! Be back soon to post some more!

Fat Ticker Friday

Well, I have TONS to write and not enough time, so I'll just post my progress (if we can call it that, LOL!) 

Lost only another .5 lb, but at least it was a loss eh? I'm totally motivated to lose at least 5 lbs by my birthday which is at months end. A big goal, I know, but I totally think I can do it! 

I'm gonna be focused, try to get around to more of the HFH participants and be blown away with all your motivation and accomplish my goal! I wanna be pre-HFH for my birthday! Then, I'll add another goal for what I wanna lose in time for HFH finale! YIPPEE!

This past week was my hubby's birthday and while we ate a lot and had tons of fun, we still kept ourselves in check. His favorite cake is the Better than Sex cake! I was so happy when he asked me to make this cake the "low fat/low sugar way!" Yay, he's on the bandwagon now and looks fantastic! He's lost almost 30 lbs in a little over a month! He's doing incredible and such a motivation for me!

Alright, I said this post was gonna be short and I'm rambling. I can't believe I haven't posted since last Friday. It's been a crazy week! I'm helping my sister move this weekend, but then hope to be around to be by all of your great blogs and add some posts to mine!

Oh and here's the recipe for the yummy cake (she calls it Holy Cow Cake) if any of your are interested. I got it from Lorie over at Honey I Shrank Myself! Delicious!!

Holy Cow Cake
1 box Devil's Food Cake mix
10-oz Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi
1 egg white
6-oz fat-free caramel ice cream topping
7-oz fat-free sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Skor Bar or Heath Bar bits
1 (8-oz) container fat-free cool whip
Mix cake mix, egg white and diet soda. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out smooth in a greased 9x13 pan. During the last few minutes of baking, put caramel and condensed milk in a sauce pan and stir on medium low heat until smooth. Take cake out of oven, and poke holes all over the top. Pour caramel mixture over warm cake, filling in the holes. Sprinkle Heath bits over the top, reserving some for the top. Cool completely. Cover with container of fat-free cool whip and sprinkle with remaining heath bits. Put in fridge until ready to serve.
