You have all seen this photo here before but it is the perfect photo to show just exactly the mood I'm in today. DORKO GOOFBALL MOOD! And lovin' it.

I'm just having one of those days! The days were everything is funny. Everything is fun. And the grass looks greener, the sky looks blue-er and.......well, you get the idea!

And to be a goofball is to act like I am today! Silly is fun today. I think part of it is being excited about going to Maui but a big part of it is just eating healthy is making me feel great!

After leaving this comment on my sister's facebook page (who is going to Maui with me)..........

"Old Kaanapali had a beach M-A-U-I and on his beach he had two mommas, M-A-U-I. With a Lava Flow here and a Lava Flow there, here a Flow, there a Flow, everywhere a Flow Flow..........sorry silly mood this if this behavior is a rare occurrence..... LOL Mahalo"

Sister emailed me and said that I've had too much coffee this morning!

But the truth is, this is me. This is my goofball personality that sometimes just has to bust out. And today is one of those days.

I would be willing to place a bet that before the day is over I will have laughed so hard that I pee my pants I cry.

I have (so far) refrained from getting on the scale today, I know it isn't a good idea to weigh every day. But I will be weighing in tomorrow and I'm going to try to keep it to weekly weigh in but to be honest unless Hunk hides the scale it will be more than that....

Just a bunch of rambling in this post but I just had to tell you all that I am so hoping that you are having a crazy, silly fun day like I am.

OH and I hope you are wearing green!

If you pinch, be kind and if someone pinches you harder than they should, bite them...... it's what I would do. =)

Kidding! (sort of)

Have a fantastic St. Patrick's Day!!!

Ciao Bellas~


  1. You are too funny! I know the mood; I get like that quite often. I have a feeling you and I would have a lot of fun together...

  2. Yep, I'm sorta in that kind of mood every day. I love my life and love laughing and besides there are always 2 ways to look at something - the up side and the down side. I choose UP 'cause God has been good to me and always will be. Choose life, choose joy, choose laughter! Great posting, as usual!!

  3. OH and p.s., STAY OFF THAT SCALE except once a week at about the same time, OK? OK!?? OK!

  4. Mama H- I get that same feeling! Could be dangerous if we lived closer together!

    LBD- I ditto that! And thank you so much for the compliment! and I'll try to stay off of the scale......ok? OK! (why do I hear the chipmunks Christmas songs going through my mind when I hear Ok? OK!) Simon? Alvin? Theodore?

  5. What a great day!!!! You really make me smile!

    It is hard to stay off the scale ... but once a week is a good routine!
    Happy St. Pat's to you! You should have a blast in Maui with your sis!!!

  6. one of the hardest things I have done in my life is lose weight!!! I lost the initial weight the hardest way. I wish i didn't have to have the surgery, but i couldn't do it myself. That saddens me, but i'm over it and have moved on. The 40lbs. or so i found years later are now off and I feel GREAT! Lanette and I have a good thing going. The buddy system works great for us and I don't think i could have done it without her help!!!Thanks sis in law!!! I only have about 10 or 15 left and I expect it to take me awhile I'm old, It doesn't come off fast and that's ok,too! I agree once a week on the scale!ok?ok!

  7. Aaaaannnnnddddd - my deal a meal program came today (3/18). Richard & I had our rendezvous this morning (snicker snicker, sweat, sweat) so now I'm going to study this program you are working with. I am SO psyched. I have a lot of weight to lose but it comes off one pound at a time and THAT is what I will focus on. Like you said on Twitter - THIS IS OUR YEAR. Thanks for the fire (you know, the one you set under me and didn't even know it).

  8. Cottage girl- Hello!!! I'm so glad I make you smile because you make me smile too! It is hard to stay off the scale but I'm going try really hard! It's just so tempting when you think you are down to jump on, but then when you aren't it's discouraging. Tomorrow is weigh in, we'll see! Hope you enjoyed your Patty's day!

  9. Karen- you look wonderful! So does Lanette. I'm so proud of both of you. And losing weight is hard. I do think working together with someone does make a big difference. I may not be working out next to each of the ladies who are going on this new best life journey with me but working together via my blog and checking in with each other is going to make a big difference. I'm just so excited! Love you cousin!

  10. LBD-Woooooooo hooooooooooooooo!!! Is it the electronic version? I saw there was a new electronic version. Mine is just the cards. As soon as I read rendezvous I didn't know if I should cover my ears and start chanting LA LA LA LA LA.....or read faster! LOL I has a lot of weight to lose also and you are right it does come one pound at a time and that is what I'm doing taking one day at a time. Not worrying about tomorrow only worrying about what I'm eating today! I'm so excited and yes THIS IS OUR YEAR! I'm thrilled to be going after our Best Lives together!

    You guys Rock my socks off!
