Giveaway winner and update!

Hello friends and followers!!

Jackie from My Perfect Little World has won the hand towels!! If you are sad that you missed out this time, don't worry, I will do this again! I have so much fun making my hand towels and I will give more away in the future. Stay tuned! :) Or, if you can't wait for a chance to win them then you can buy them at My Etsy Store!

Ok, so an update on how everything has been going for me. As some of you will remember my dad came for a visit recently (and yes, we did get that Princess bike and my little lady loves it!) and we all ended up taking a mini-vacation up to Las Vegas! We had a fantastic time swimming in the wave pool, laying by the pool tanning, walking up and down the strip to see the sites and the lights. I did rather poorly gambling, but I had fun! Which is the point for me anyway. :)

My challenge came in making the best of the food choices with what was available to me. I did pretty well for the first two days (even my dad was impressed by my willpower and complimented me on it!), but the last two ended up just being too much for me. I felt like I was compromising so much that it wasn't worth it to keep going and that I really needed to start over. I could literally taste the sugars and fats in the foods. My body and taste buds and mind really revolted and I had no desire for these things but they were unavoidable. Gradually my resistance wore down as I kept eating more and more. Again, I felt like I had compromised way more than I wanted to and needed to detox my system of the sugars and carbs and so on.

So, this is me. Starting over for the third time... but it will have to wait until after Easter! I need a break from the mundane of chicken, ham, and more chicken. :) I have enjoyed dessert, ice cream, and plan to enjoy pasta in over the weekend. Don't worry, I won't go overboard and will continue my working out. I shall resume come Monday. Plus, yes, pictures will be taken over the weekend and I'll weigh in.

Want to see my downfall in Vegas? It was dessert at the Mandalay Bay in their Bayside Buffet. I ate two. I figured if I was going to toss the last three weeks of hard work out then I'll go all the way! lol It was very, very yummy.

How are you all doing on your journeys? What do you do when temptation strikes? How do you stay strong?
