ABSOLUTELY AMAZING NIGHT! P!NK blew me away. She looks as amazing as she does in pictures & on tv.. she is gorgeous! And she sang her a$$ off!

Her stage was set up with a sort've a windy lil runway connected to the mainstage..we were between both of these so we literally turned in circles all night. We were right up against the runway and about 4ft from the middle of the mainstage..

She did aerial work throughout the show.. sometimes I forgot she was actually singing too, it was so beautiful to watch. Her dancers are all so talented and really compliment the show. Opening act, The Hives were alot of fun and I can see why she hand-picked them herself. She sang for nearly 2 hours and made it look so easy! She is by far, one of THE best performers I have ever seen. She did not disappoint, she was worth every penny.

This is how she made her entrance..




All this flying around while she sings.... beautifully


she was *right* there!

..............and in other news.................

UD went way way better than expected.. I was so nervous for the show (like a freakin teenager! ) that I wasn't all that hungry for most of the day..I grazed on bits & pieces of things from the arena and had 1 beer..not nearly enough water I'm sure..not for $5 a pop for a bottle of water that I could slug down in nearly 3 gulps.. bad part is I am probably a little dehydrated today..

I actually LOST a little... *.4* for the day.

Still no TOM

Now, to recuperate my hearing, my ears are still ringing!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY MY LOVELIES!

Thanks for visiting ladies! My ears are still ringing today...kinda.. Funnily enough, the night of the show I literally heard her singing in my sleep all night long

....now, to get ready to see Muse in March!

Fabulous DD yesterday.. I think it was about 347 cals? I tried getting in as much water as I could possibly guzzle to try and wring out some of this dehydration..wasn't enough I don't think.. loss was only .2 Sittin right on 230.. I was hoping to go below with such a great DD but thems the breaks... Hopefully I won't go up too much with the numbers after today's UD.

Valentine's Day was a DD and I had zero chocolate. This is an absolute first. Surprisingly, I didn't even miss it...even with my girls munching on their ginormo Reese's hearts that their dad gave them..

I'm near it, I'm not, I'm near it, I'm not.... Today I am not! The last coupla DD's have been so clean and I've lost teensy amounts... *point-somethin* meh!
______________________________________________

Big bounce for yesterday's UD. We had Chipotle for dinner... but I definitely didn't get in enough water for the day to counteract it. Got about 12 days before the end of the month to try to get to that 20's number..

Still no TOM... yeah I know...what else is new?

Melanie, I started questioning this earlier this month especially after the thread that started in the JUDDD forums about hormones, IF'ing, and women that Hope started. Mines kinda confusing because I am getting older and could be perimeno related.

Girl, I've been in the 30's for over 2 months..I mean, seriously...W.T.F.
_______________________________________

Pretty great UD, came in right on calories..about 2100.. Lots of water and working on limiting my diet Pepsi addiction.. only had 1 glass yesterday and going to try and not have any on DD's.

Kiddos are out of school today so sticking close to home for the day. I wish we could've planned a quick little getaway somewhere but I didn't think about it til it was too late. Dangit!

Weather has been beautiful...rain is on the way this coming week..even better.

Still no TOM..

I think I'll watch Argo today. Love Love Love!

This weekend was beautiful wasn't it? I'm looking forward to the rain and cold later in the week though. Still have some firewood and I want to use it!

You'll be in the 20's soon D. Your body is hanging on to the 30s so tight, I bet when it finally gives those coupla pounds up, it'll be in a big whoosh and you'll lose again consistently. Set points really SUCK!

Hey Danielle!! I know you had a scale fiasco not too long ago, but even with the second scale, it still had you measuring higher than your old one. So really, you're in the 20s!! And I see a nice downward trend!!!

Haha Amber! That's one way of lookin at it, huh? I was in the 30's for many years prior to ever embarking on trying to lose weight so I figure my body is trying to tell me I'm not going anywhere. Annoying as all get out but I'll hopefully figure out something to get things moving.

LCG~ yeah, we've got some wood leftover too we need to use. Nice to be able to throw the windows open and let the natural light in this weekend. ...holding onto the 30's tight is an understatement! Silly me for thinkin that I would just sail right on through each decade!

Janet~ hope you're having a good day!

Aw thanks. Admittedly, I hang on because I love JUDDD dearly...like no other.. perhaps I should be looking into something else, more tweaks, etc..but I'm truly not interested in another plan.

Spent part of today doing some reading trying to find some explanations for my period being late, as well as other symptoms..stumbled upon an article regarding post tubal ligation syndrome and it possibly causing early perimeno... it's like the world opened up and a big ole light shone through.. hard to explain. I had a tubal done during my c-section with DD16.. I experienced tons of symptoms for many years that are listed for PTLS.. all these years always being told it was nothing...or something else.. appears to be huge conflicting opinions as to whether it actually "causes" perimeno but there are MANY women with much of the same experiences.. kinda sickening to think I have suffered for SO long..not to mention kinda feeling betrayed by it all. Reading up on perimenopause and trying to wrap my head around symptoms and what to do etc is mind boggling. The positive is that maybe some help with weight loss and feeling more like myself.

I am stuck in the 20's again it took me like a freaking year to lose those last 20 pounds and it sure didnt take long to find them, all this working out, and I swear I cannot get out of them! I have not been in the teens since like August! WTH? I hate it, but oh well, I cant keep getting so stressed about it! Dieting sucks!
