So Kate Moss once said, "Nothing taste as good as skinny feels" So true, except for a 14 inch vegi pizza, a nice 6oz steak with sauteed mushrooms or a piece of peanut butter pie.

Although I have not been allowing myself to eat these items, doesn't mean I haven't been dreaming about them.

Knowing that you are going on vacation in less than 30 days really makes you think about what you should and shouldn't eat.

I would really like to loose those last 8 lbs before vacation....although probably not realistic. lol.

I wake up hungry and go to bed hungry. I watch my husband devour items like cake, chips, dip, and cookies without blinking an eye. Oh yea, I get mad at him And guess what, he looks wonderful in his bathing suit.

Maybe that's because he didn't have back to back pregnancies, maybe that's because his stomach wasn't stretch like a beach ball. And maybe because he has some good "Hollenbeck" genes.

Anyway, I actually feel good about eating right and exercising. I like getting on the scale and seeing a lower number. I like trying on my work pants and realizing I need a belt or even better need to buy a smaller size. But darn it, I just would like to eat all the "bad" stuff too. Oh well sacrifices right.

Side note, my husband thinks I look great. Sometimes I wish I could just see me through his eyes. He's excited for us to go on vacation so that kind of makes it all worth it. He's sweet and good to me. And that's why I love him. :)


  1. How sweet! I love you two and your sweet girls!

    I feel better when I am eating right and trying to be healthy - but I totally hear you! Bad food sure does taste good!

    I am excited that you are going on vacation soon!

  2. Where are you all headed on Vacay?

    My husband thinks I look great too. Wouldn't it be cool just to see what they see.

    We have great husbands!

  3. Frootie - we have wonderful husbands! God has truly blessed us. :)

    We are going to Myrtle beach. I'm so excited because it's the first time the girls have been to the ocean/beach. Well Gracie was there when she was 3mths but I doubt she remembers. :) So excited.

  4. Oh you should try Weight Watchers!! You would drop that 8 pounds before vacation for sure! Plus, you can still eat sweet stuff (as long as you count your points!) It really does work- I just have trouble sticking to it sometimes because I am not focused enough right now... but if your "head is in the game" it is pretty easy to stick to!

  5. Actually, that's exactly what I did. I stuck to my points and exercised ( a little) And yep I lost 7 lbs....not too shabby!
