Where Did The Weekend Go?!?

What did you guys do this weekend?  

Well if you are anything like me, it wasn't anything too exciting, but I had a pretty great weekend all the same.... aside from eating like I used to for 2.5 days and paying the price with headaches, being bloated, tired, and ill.   When will I ever learn?!?  It still tastes good, though.  I read all kinds of things about women saying that the junk doesn't even taste good to them anymore, where can I get some of that?!?  I agree that it isn't worth it after the fact, but as it's being shoved down my face it is delicious and my mouth is a happy girl.

Back to the weekend.  As I mentioned last post, we were prepping for our first ever yard sale on Saturday.  Well, as I pulled into my driveway after work Friday morning a couple of cars followed me.  Which is odd, since there are only 2 houses on my street that are lived in.  So I get out of the car and am asked if this is where the yard sale is.  I immediately begin to panic about what I wrote on the signs.  I run and open the garage and let people start digging, even though I had planned on it  being set up like a fancy boutique.   I finally got the nerve to ask a lady if the sign said Friday, and she said "no, Friday is just a good yard sale day"  So, that is Alabama for ya.  But if you want to come buy my shit, I am more than happy to oblige.  After being up for nearly 24 hours and making $130 I crashed!

Saturday was even better!  I had completely envisioned us sitting outside with our crap all day and then finally giving up and dragging it all to good will.  But we sold EVERYTHING with the exception of alot of my books and clothes which I boxed up and put in the attic for our spring sale that we are totally having!  Our grand total was just over $400, I was floored!  I am going ASAP to put it in the Wedding/Honeymoon fund (my savings account).  That is going to cover some good times in DC!

Also, this weekend.  I discovered Google talk, which let me talk to my e-mail/blog buddy, Keyona ,in real time!!!!  It was fantastic, and I realized that we are soul mates and we can't live in the same state because that much awesome in one place would cause chaos!  So, big thanks to her husband for setting that up!

So, today I am back on track.  Over the weekend I consumed countless garbage including a Wendy's burger, and Domino's Pizza and cheesebread.  I haven't done the Shred since my remote was eaten, and yesterday I was only able to run 1 whopping mile before I had to get home to hit the toilet.  My goals for the week are:
~Track on MFP.  I had tracked for like 60 days straight until I missed Saturday and Sunday.  Plus, tracking makes me really think before I eat.
~Get in my water!!  
~ I will do the Shred Tuesday and Wednesday morning (at least) and then run Thursday, Friday, and of course my 5k on Saturday!!
~ I am not weighing in this week.  I know it's not going to be pretty and I am not hitting my 50lb mark this week so why even let myself go there with feeling bad about myself.

My biggest goal this week is to think of something fun for Ryan's birthday... which is Sunday.  We both have to work so I am going to have to think of something for Saturday night!!!

I saw this on the Internet the other day, and I laughed so hard.... like, inappropriately.  It combines 2 of my favorite things!  So I knew you guys would appreciate it..... maybe. 

Yes, I know honey boo boo and her family are a horrible train wreck, but I can't help it, I love it... don't judge.  And if you haven't watched the honey badger video, please do so, also hilarious, at least if you have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy, like me :)

 I jumped on the Instagram bandwagon a few weeks ago and am addicted.... I'm just so nosey, I love seeing what other people are up to!  So I need more people to stalk follow.  leave me your user name if you don't mind!  You can follow me at jenlynn426.

Well, I'm off to bed so I can get my work week started tonight.... boo!  I hope you all had a great weekend!

Much Love,


  1. Girl, just get back on track and you'll be fine!
    OMG! Happy birthday Ryan, how did I not know this! Chris' is tomorrow! CRAZY!!!

    You're going to do AMAZING Saturday!!!

  2. $130 is awesome!! I wish I would have done one before it got too chilly. And how much do you love Keyona?! She is awesome!!

  3. Total score on the yard sale! I've heard of people doing that... showing up the night before or hours early in the morning to get a jump on the good stuff... people are crazy for good deals I guess!
