Call Me A Slacker

A full week since I last blogged???? How can that be? Ah, yes. My name is Lexi and I'm a slacker!
But, here's the scoop:

I'm still working at my part-time job with fluctuating hours. I worked 30 hours this past week so that was good.  It's been nice to be able to go to the same place each day and work with/for the same people. It's been a month now.

I did some revising on Tell Me No Lies based on my critique partner's suggestions, but I'm not done yet. I should be, though. (Or at least almost finished.)

I started reading Because of You by Jessica Scott. I like it, but I've only read 56 pages. I should be a lot further into it.

I hit 11 gym classes and 20 mins on the treadmill this week. It's been tough trying to find a regular schedule with me working. Some days I'm too tired to do anything after work. I have begun to notice some positive changes in my body. My muscles are slightly more defined (well, more defined than I've ever seen them!), I can do more of the class moves, and I have a lot more energy (even when I'm tired)! A lot of my clothes are too big for me and some clothes I haven't been able to wear for a couple of years now fit. (For the record, I'm still hovering around 14.5 lbs down. I can tell these last 9.5 are going to be toughest to lose.)

I've started planning my 40th birthday party in October. Should be doing more of that this weekend when I chat with my sister-in-law who offered her house. I'm getting kind of excited, as I pull pictures to share with guests from my 4 decades!

I've spent WAAAAAAAY too much time on Facebook and Twitter. 'Nough said. See? Here it is close to 1:30 and I've been on the computer since I got up about 9!

NEXT WEEK....I plan to get busy with my revising again. I will attend at least 11 more gym classes. I will FINISH Jessica's book. And I promise to blog more!


  1. The last few pounds are always the hardest to lose, but you're doing great! Sending you happy revising vibes. :)

  2. Thanks, Bonnie! I've actually been making peace with myself that if I can't get down much more I'll be okay with that. I think allowing myself to stay where I am (But NEVER getting back up to where I was!) will actually be a good thing for me. Of course, I'm still going to push to lose those last 9,10lbs though!
