Weekend Update


My four days off actually felt like a mini vacay. It was very refreshing. I had some low moments of weakness for sure, but family time, friend time and wine time always helps to fix those kinda things. I actually ate meals this weekend like a normal person. I got some killer black Friday deals. The Vols actually won a game! I got my Christmas decorations up in the house and took down Skye's pictures. Which at first, I was hesitant to do but I'm so glad I did both. The Christmas decorations really helped to brighten my spirits!
 
I'm working on getting myself ready for the 2013 Nikki. I logged on to MyFitness Pal app this morning and it told me that I've lost a total of 43 lbs since I started my weight loss journey back in March 2011. Holy Shit! I honestly didn't know that I had 43 lbs. to lose! My ultimate goal is 5 more, but I'm really happy with where I am now. I will do a before and after post soon and show you some lovely chubby pictures. Those are always fun!
 
You can find me and follow along with my insanity on Instagram at {nikkib918}.
 
I came home Wednesday night to TWO much needed little pick-me-up packages from some of my very favs!
Erin, Kim, & Cassie I love you girls! Thank you for being you!
PS - I totally devoured all of those Sour Patch kids! :)

Only back where I come from do they have Coon Clubs...Gotta love being from the country!

Much needed wine after a fun filled family Thanksgiving

Best Sign Ever leaving the car wash yesterday
