I am out of fruit. The world may stop turning.

I have just about 7 seconds to type this and get out the door. My new years resolution should have been to try not to be late because then I wouldn't feel bad about being late. I'd say I just did it to spite that resolution nonsense.

I should be getting my shoes on now, but this morning while sitting in front of my computer shoving my face (don't try this at home) I realized that today it has been one month exactly since I have posted on this blog and I missed it so much that I just couldn't resist for one moment longer. How's that for a run on sentence.

I am officially out of fruit, which in this house is right on board there with the Cuban Missile Crisis. Well.... there are some half squishy half brown grapes, but out of season grapes aren't really my bag. I have got to fit the grocery store in my day.

Since we started eating better in this house it's amazing how many foods become staples. Foods like oatmeal, eggs, fruit, lettuce, and good salad dressing (a hot commodity around here). Six days ago I came home with 10 apples (5 green, 5 red) 4 oranges, 5 bananas, grapes, 3 bell peppers, cucumber, and lettuce, as of right now we have nothing.... except for those squishy grapes that no one will eat.  It's a great feeling.

Just thought I'd share and break the one month curse before it got out of hand.

I'd like to talk some more say around...eight tonight. Does that sound good? Ok meet you here.

I am not a multi tasker, this much is obvious.

I have 2 blogs. Did you know that? The other one is here. If you notice I am not updating this one please check that one.

They're pretty much the same thing only that one is temporary (111 days to be exact) and this one is permanent. As in forever. FOR-EV-ER (say this like they do in the Sandlot). Isn't that a great thought? We'll be friends forever :) all 15 of us. I told you, we're not a big people, but we've got heart.

It's hard to balance weight loss, fitness, and fabulousity all at the same time. It's hard, but I manage.

Being a couch potato never pays off.

Unless of course you stumble upon something that makes you not want to be a couch potato. Then I guess that would be a pay off.

I must admit I am NOT a fan of MTV. Used to be. When there was actually music on it. Now it's full of orange people from New Jersey with big hair and drinking problems... of 16 year old girls with children who make 250k a year for being "TV personalities". Not my cup of tea.

Never the less while couch surfing the other night my husband and I stumbled upon THIS. It. is. incredible.

For any of you who haven't seen the show "I used to be fat" I recommend. Highly. Granted this girl is 18 and just graduated from high school, but in every other way I could COMPLETELY relate!!!!

My husband and I are going to embark on our very own 111 day journey and have started a blog about it. Blogging was my idea (although if my lack of dedication to this blog is saddening) and once he got the jist of it he's totally on board... with everything but the before pictures. 

They were horrifying but completely necessary for transformation. Please note this is not what I look like(at least that's what I keep telling myself). These pictures were taken fresh out of the shower with no makeup and they scare even me. So be warned. This is not the fabulous girl you know.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE follow us and I invite you to join in! I would love to see the change in you in just 111 days. Your days don't have to start on the first like ours did, just start!!!!! If you're already on a healthy track I ask you to STEP IT UP for the next 111 days! Intensify! Push yourselves!!!

Robin and Roxie I am talking especially to you! Let's renew ourselves and our motivation in 2011!
