I did a lot of walking this weekend at the stores shopping for halloween costumes, at the electrical saving expo, at the tattoo expo...but I have not incorporated regular exercise into my diet yet..SOooooo, tomorrow I plan to start with the regular exercise so if you see me going up or down Kagman's main strip, please do not run me over! :)
30-3=27 lbs to go by January 23rd...

Brandy and Me with the "Dragon"
Stan gets some ink..
The festival was very cool! I thought they should have had a bigger venue or done it outside since it was such a beautiful day..but other than that, it was pretty awesome! Dragon Edong did a GREAT job!

Hello Kitty meets Darth Vader
I would die if I wore this and someone asked me "Why didn't you dress up this year?" ACK!

I'm sure I have put on at least 25lbs this year and its time to take it all off and then some..so today is the official start of my diet (aghh, I hate that word!) The plan is to drop 30 pounds by my birthday, 90 days from now..I have never been able to stick to a diet or a work out plan before...I'd do it for a day or two..sometimes a week, then I would give up. I normally eat whatever I want to eat whenever I want to..but at my age, I really can't be doing that any more. My metabolism has slowed wayyyy down. I'm starting to get lower back aches and I swear at nights when I can't sleep I hear my subconscious "skinny me" saying "HELP! Get me out of here!"
I don't think I have drank a glass of water in over 10 years (ok maybe I have on occasion, but I'm sure never more than one glass on any given day). My daily refreshments consist of Mr. Brown Ice Coffee, Hot coffee, Coke Zero and Ice tea (with sugar).
Since I can never stick to a diet on my own, I thought that maybe if I blog about it, and I know that the people who read my blog know that I'm suppose to be on this "diet" maybe it will motivate me to stick with it this time...accountability of sorts??.. We shall see..I was going to post my starting weight, but after typing the number and then deleting it 4 times, I realized that I don't have the guts to do that just yet..ha ha..maybe at the end of the 90 days when I've reached my goal..but I am posting the Jenny Craig requisite "before" picture....
The "Before" Shot :( the "After" shot to follow in 90 days
Water, fish and rabbit food here I come...

I finally got to meet Harry Blalock in person. (Yes, I am one of 5 people left on Saipan who have never actually met him before..he he).I was very surprised when he walked into my office this afternoon and asked to see me. I had been taking a quick lunch/snack break and had a mouth full of Breadfruit chips (which I bought at Marg's bakery for a buck fifty and which are really good!)..Anyway, so he walked up to my desk, I chewed and swallowed the breadfruit chips as fast as I could, reached out to shake his hand and said "I know who you are, (DUH!) nice to finally meet you in person" and he handed me a spondylus shell...OMG! How cool is that???!!! I had mentioned to him in a comment on his blog today that I had never seen a live Spondylus before but that my children loved to collect pieces of spodylus shells at Obyan beach. They usually have a little contest between the two of them to see who can collect the most spondylus or who can find the biggest, nicest piece...My son has in fact found a couple of spondylus beads used by ancient chamorro's for money and jewelry at Obyan beach. So, it was very very cool that Harry would take the time to come by my office and actually give me a fully intact half shell...very cool and much appreciated!!! I'm going to bring it home today and show it to the kids. It will be their first time to see a whole spondylus shell too, so I'm sure they will think it's as "cool" as I do (and I'm sure they will argue over who gets to keep it..he he). :)
Jewelry made with Spondylus beads (The orange colored ones are spondylus)
Took the kids to eat at Beach Garden BBQ
The kids like to eat there because they get to cook their own food...
At least that's what they say, but the adults seem to always end up doing the cooking..
We had some GORGEOUS sunsets this weekend!
and the days weren't too bad either...
Ulu played at the Hafa Adai Cultural Center so we had dinner there one night...
and I got to watch the Ali'i dance group perform again :)
The Tourists were having a blast!
And of course, vali got to carve his first Jack-o-skeleton for Halloween this weekend...can't forget about that!
Another awesome weekend down. It's back to work tomorrow...aggh! :)
