An entire entry...  
...with no talk of work or theatre. Almost impossible for me, but I've decided... it's the weekend and I'm not going to think about or even talk about work today. And although theatre is a HUGE part of my life, I think I can go one entry without talking about it... because there's more to me than just theatre and my darn job... not much, admittedly ;), but there are a few things not related to the two that I've been failing to mention recently...

Three weeks ago I started my healthy eating and exercise plan again, but this time I didn't mention it here for fear that I would jinx myself. This time seems different from all the others I've mentioned in the past, though... this time I'm doing it with conviction. Needing to buy new clothes because I didn't even fit my larger sized clothes was a HUGE wake up call for me when I came home from my last LA trip. All the stress eating that I had been doing at work and all the comfort eating that I'd been doing on the weekends certainly took its toll. :P But the good news is that in the three weeks that I've been doing this, I've lost almost half of my target weight loss goal! Hopefully I'll be able to maintain my new healthier lifestyle - and hopefully my conviction endures the holiday season. :P

Today Mark & I went out to Best Buy so that Mark could pick up a Star Wars Lego video game that he'd been looking at for a while. Apparently it's been out for a while (and the new one is supposed to come out soon) - I can't believe he hasn't gotten it before today... It combines his three favorite things in the world; Star Wars, Lego, AND video games... If it included chocolate of some sort, he probably would've married it instead of me... ;P

Other than video game hunting, I've been spending most of my weekend trying to work on developing a few designs for my new web client. I'm awaiting photos and text that she's promised to send me so I can see if I'm able to work a couple of the photos into her site design as well. Sadly, I feel a little uninspired lately. I have a design that I've completed and two others that I'm still fiddling with, but I'm not extremely fond of any of them yet... I still need to work on them tonight, hopefully inspiration will hit soon...

Well, I'd better run and get back to work on those designs. I'm hoping that I have all three of them done and ready to show tomorrow night. I hope you're all having a great weekend. HUGS!

AHAHAHA. I laughed so hard at that. We definitely carried that game at work and I was like, "Uhm... why do you want to play a Star Wars game where everyone is made out of Legos?"

For some reason Mark loves the game!! I think it's the inner child in him. :) I watched him play it for a while and it was pretty cute. All the characters walk around with... like, "c-shaped" hands. ;)

Congratulations on the weight loss!

Already half way to your target weight loss goal in three weeks??!!! That's fabulous!!! You should be very proud of yourself, Sheri. Especially since you've been taking a lot on on these past few weeks. *BIG HUGS* I know you can stay strong during the holiday season. You do know that I think you looked wonderful before, but if it makes you happy, that's what really matters. :)

I can't wait to see the new web designs. I love your work! :D

Awwww, Carrie - you're so sweet! But it's only because of you and Laura - you both are my inspirations!! :) I feel so much better now that I'm working out again... I even think that it helped me to recouperate faster when I got the flu this past week. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it up... :)

And thanks so much! I actually posted the designs that I created this weekend (and they all need real HELP!) :P Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! :)

Big *HUGS* Carrie!! I miss you! :(

Congratulations on your weight loss!

No longer to fit in clothes really can be a shock, right? It hit me some weeks ago and was the reason that I changed some of my eating habits and try to do a bit more than only to ride La Douce. I'm nearly back to the weight from last year and if I'm honest it makes me feel better. :) I'm sure you can stay strong during the holiday season! I too, I hope.

I'm crossing my fingers that inspiration will find you! Hopefully you will show your work here. I really like to look at it.

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!

Awww, thanks so much, Sabine!! :) I really knew it was time to do something serious after coming home from LA... it was awful, I couldn't even fit into my BIG clothes. :P It was all that stress and comfort eating, I tell you!! :P And you don't have to worry about losing weight at all, you're perfect the way you are, Sabine!! :)

And I just uploaded the versions of the site that I was working on this weekend, but they really need help. :P Any suggestions on how I could make them better would be greatly appreciated!! :)

Hope you've had a nice weekend, Sabine!! Big *HUGS* to you!!!

OHhh how I need to lose weight yet do not do what Im suppose to. I mean I know I have to change my diet right away. *sulks*
Ya know I literally just ate a bowl of chocolate chip icecream with fudge on top. *tsk tsk* Im never gonna be strong willed enough - but I seriously need to get off my keister. Cuz my keister is sure getting bigger.

We have that Lego Star Wars game. Its so cool once you get the hang of all the fighting patterns..

Mmmmm.... chocolate chip ice cream... with fudge... :) That sounds SO good! :) And I don't think you have anything to worry about... I've seen your pictures and you look great, you don't need to diet!

And haha! I watched Mark play it yesterday and it was so funny to see the little lego men walking around with their hands in the lego "c-shaped" configuration. ;)

Believe me - I got a nice size tire and belly...


Ya know what occured to me - that my son got that game last yr for his birthday - gosh you were late getting that game but the good thing is - well I hope - was that it was cheaper..

1. When Brendon becomes a video game devloper, I'll be sure and send you some free games! :)

2. Good for you for sticking to the diet. I tell ya..... I know how great it feels when you shed the pounds......When I got my Kinder job, I haven't had the energy or the time to go to Curves and work out. I am either drop dead tired or the gym is closed. So I'm getting a big worried that I'm going to gain the weight back I lost when I ordered my dress! :oS
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on September 11th, 2006 04:59 am (UTC)
1. Haha!! I tell you, Mark is SO envious of Brendon and his career choice!! :D

2. You'll be fine, Stacey!! You'll look so beautiful on your wedding day!! I can't wait to see you in your dress!!

3. I'm sorry that your comments to my blog are not getting posted... I try to approve them and it tells me there's an error and when I go back, I can't get your message back! :( MySpace is going wonky on me again!! :( Thanks for the blog coment you left, though!!

Oh it's totally ok. If it's not Myspace that's messing up it's LJ.

For me... LJ is totally screwing up my user info page. When I open it up... it's totally out of wack.
