SJP update - I know it's been over a week!

I know, I know. I said I’d be better about blogging, and I haven’t. Well, as is customary for me, I’m always one for “today starts fresh” and “get serious starts today.” So, today is a new day, I’m starting fresh on my diet, my apple cider vinegar (more on that later), and on my blogging! Spring brings such new promises, doesn’t it?


Yes, I know it’s been out for years and many of you have already seen it, but I live in Richmond here people. I’d wanted to see Wicked since it came out a few years ago, but didn’t have the chance. I did pick up the book though, and was sorely disappointed. I could not get through it, it was just not well written, and although I wanted to know what happened, I couldn’t finish the book.

Although the play took a lot of liberties with the novel, I thought it was magnificent! The story line here was much more interesting, the songs were fabulous, the cast was amazing! And even though 5 little slips fell out of our playbill informing us many of the main characters would be replaced by understudies, I thought it was perfect, and can’t even imagine how the main cast could have done much better. Although we went with the alumni group, I specifically went with Charlotte, her husband K, and L. Even L was laughing and said he enjoyed it! The only thing I didn’t really care for (NOTE – Spoiler alert) was that the Scarecrow was Fiore (spelling, I know). Anyways, I get the other two, but not him. He didn’t tie as well into the Wizard of Oz’s character as the rest did, and I didn’t really buy it. But whatever, I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was a wonderful evening at the theatre.

ACV Diet
I guess it’s been about a week since I “started” the ACV diet (see earlier post). And I can’t say I’ve noted any changes, however, that could definitely be due to the fact that I haven’t really been religious about it. When I went out of town this weekend, I abandoned it altogether, and haven’t started back up again yet. Today I took my first dose, and will vow to get serious with this!

L Update

L and I are still going strong. Things are really going well with him! He officially lurrrves me! That’s right folks! You read it correctly, L loves me! And I love him too! Wow! This is serious! Anyways, I’m meeting his mom this weekend, and we’re planning a weekend in April to go up to see my parents, then we’re planning a long mini-vacation in Savannah soon as well! I’m really thinking good things about this one! :)

Weight Loss

As mentioned in opening paragraph, today is also Operation Get Serious with weight loss. I exercise plenty. At least 4 times a week, and often as much as 7 times a week, but I just cannot seem to get my eating in check, so I signed up for a biggest loser in my office, and the Meltdown at the Y, and it’s time to be held accountable! I think I’m going to do Weight Watchers also. Although, not sign up officially, but I have all the materials, I know I can do it as long as I have someone keeping my accountable weekly for weigh in! But I’ve been on a “diet” for 10 years, and each year, it gets worse and worse. I just can’t have L seeing me in a bathing suit in this disarray!!

Well, that’s it for the SJP update! I know this was long, but once I get back into the groove of things, it’ll be a lot easier!

Well first I think you look fabulous but the diet thing where someone checks in is huge. I lost a ton of weight last year (well not a ton but 5 lbs) when my work did a gain don't maintain over the holidays b/c we had to weigh in every week. I also try to weigh myself every day but K always says I shouldn't get upset if it flucuates like three pounds b/c it could be water, not going to the bathroom, etc.

Wicked - loved it. Thought it was hard to hear some of the singing in groups though. And totally agree re. scarecrow.

L - I'm glad you guys are in love. You're super cute together and I really liked him at Wicked.

Yay! Glad you liked L! And thanks for the motivation, I would take 5 lbs!!
