Fat and Frustrated!

I have a pair of pants I want to fit into by birthday. The sad part is that these pants used to fit me. They were my favorite pair of jeans.

I don't eat fast food. I cook most of my meals. I don't drink soda very often. My problem is I don't exercise enough, I like treats and I eat late sometimes.( I don't get home from work until 9:30 some nights and need dinner.)

I'm done eating late and I'm going to exercise more.

So here is the plan. I am going to post once a week my updates. I am not at my heaviest. Not even close. I am however much heavier than I want to be. My knees are hurting again. I am tired all the time and I need a change. This is were my accountability comes in.

These are mymeasurements and my weight.

Upper arms: L: 13 1/2 R: 13 1/4
Wrists: L: 6 1/2 R: 6 1/2
Bust: 42
Waist: 36 3/4
Hips: 43 1/4
Thighs: L: 26 1/4 R: 26
Calves: L: 17 R: 16 3/4
Ankles: L: 10 1/4 R: 10 1/4
Size 12/14 pants
Weight: 191.2

That was super embarrassing to share.

Now at the very bottom of this post I have 2 pictures. I am wearing these goal pants. I can't do them up. If you have a weak stomach do not look!

Okay... now Week one.

Ensign Ranch 2012 AWESOMENESS!

There was no sleep but there was lots of fun!

Spencer and I got to Dad's hide on Thursday night. We had Christmas. It was awesome. Spencer got a bunch of treats in is stocking and then a $20 iTunes card. I got candy, a journal and a 16 quart stock pot that didn't fit in my suitcase. So it's still ad Dad's.

We arrived at the Ranch on Friday afternoon. Out cousin Angie came for the night. She is so fun. We played games and laughed until we couldn't breathe!
Fun was put on hold when Angie's daughter took a nose dive off the top bunk and broke her arm. We have all done stupid stuff but that was our first ER trip. Carmon is doing fine now.

We played Loaded Questions! Ryan's career at The Mustang Ranch and Butt Pimple were two running jokes. With Spencer being our official reader of the answers we were able to get him to broaden his vocabulary. Haha.
Rhonda is a klepto of socks.
Dedra and I are world famous opera singers that not only get standing ovations, we clear the room! Hahaha!
We are all minions.
Everyones nails got painted. Even the boys. No exceptions!
Payton is in love with Spencer.
We did floating lanterns.
We played pool.
We played the piano.
We talked.
We played in the snow.

We ate amazing food and a lot of it! We played games until 3am. We woke up early. We all have Mormon hang overs.
(Tummy hurts from laughing head duets from all the sugar and achy from no sleep.)

I love my family so much!

I can't wait until next year!!!!!

Ensign Ranch

This is my first blog of the year. Sweet!

For those of you who are not cool enough to be an Anderson, married to an Anderson, the spawn of an Anderson or the parents who started it all, good luck getting through the doors. We have an army of kids who won't let you play.

This is the best weekend of the year! There is too much food, too little sleep and if you say it's too loud you might get beat.

Only at the Ranch is Ping Pong a full contact sport. Only at the Ranch will you see RYAN sing opera. Only at the Ranch will you see the adults get in trouble by the kids. Only at the Ranch...

We play games. We talk about things we did as kids. It's always fun to see how many times you can hear "That was you who did that!" from your parents. (We're adults. What are they going to do? Ground us?) Dedra, I Wore the house coat.

Spoons are broken, people laugh until they can breath, talents are shown, food is eaten and sleep is for the weak!

Its so fun and I can't hardly wait. Spencer and I will be flying out this afternoon. We will return Monday and I hope to have pictures for your viewing pleasure by Tuesday... And maybe the stories that go along with them. Hahahahaha
