Superior Scribbler Award + Stuff

Happy Monday! Those two words should not be in the same sentence! Hahaha! Hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was good. I got to spend some time with Deb and Larry who are my besties and I have missed them a lot. We hadn't seen in each other in like a month so we had lots of catching up to do. They said they noticed a big change. One thing that struck me was we were sitting in their garage shooting the breeze and Larry looks at me and says "Katie, in the 25 years I have known you, I have never seen you cross your legs!" They weren't crossed completely but I guess I did it unconsciously.

I ate fine all weekend but did not track and I did not wear my bugg. I actually got on the scale again and I was down 2 more lbs. which puts me at 58 lbs. lost and 97 more to go. We updated my progress pictures as well and you can see them here. My face is a little washed out but you get the idea. I think I will start doing butt shots as well (Greta!) I would like to put them in a slideshow as well so I can see the progression (Note to self)

My lovely friend Marcelle has bestowed me with the Superior Scribbler award. I am so flattered that people actually like what I write.

The Rules & Regulations are as follows:
  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass the award on to five most deserving bloggers
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom s/he has received the award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display the award on his/her blog, and link to The Scholastic Scribe, which explains the award.
  • Each blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr Linky List. That way, they'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives this prestigious honor.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Here are the 5 people that I think are Superior Scribblers too.

  1. Candace at Believing in C - C is Me
  2. Leslie at Something Brilliant is Brewing
  3. Alan at Fools Fitness
  4. Bearfriend at Friend of the Bear
  5. Kate at Fab at 50

There are so many wonderful blogs out there but these folks stand out in the crowd and if you have not had a chance to read them I highly recommend you do so.

Mom and I will be going to Outback tonight. I will have the Ahi Tuna appetizer, a salad and mashed potatoes. I have been hankering for a steak though so we shall see. Until next time...


  1. I'm a huge Katie deserve this award.
    Enjoy your time out with your mom this evening, I'm missing mine....xx

  2. Yay, for another 2 pounds! Congratulations on your award, Katie!!!

  3. Congratulations on 2 more pounds Katie. You really are doing great! You can really see a difference in your pics. We had some friends over this weekend and went on my favorite hike in Montara. I thought of you - I think you would like it. It goes to some benches above the cliffs and takes about 30 min to get up and then we sit at the benches and look at the water and head back. It is an awesome hike. There is also a nice one at the end of the harbor on the cliffs above Mavericks that is nice too!

  4. Wow, the pictures are amazing - you can really see how far you've come! Congrats on losing another 2 are on a roll, girl! Glad you had such a good weekend with your friends - sometimes that is just what we need!

  5. Congrats on the award and CONGRATS on the 2 pounds GONE!! I love seeing success and adore watching your progress.

  6. Glad you had a great weekend. Congrats on the award. Well deserved. :)

  7. Wow-thanks so much for bestowing me with the award Katie-I am so honored. Can't wait to pass it on~ Congrats on those 2pds-your pictures were amazing and I can't wait to stick around for more.

  8. mmmm the Outback! GOod for you - planning is key! Congrats on the award - you deserve it!!

  9. Congrats on the loss! I don't think I could do back end shots myself... I need a wide angle lens for that!

    Thank you very much for the award. I'm glad people enjoy my writing. However not to get arrogant, I have a long way to go and much to learn still.

    I think folks who have never been very overweigh don't have a clue how something that seems so small (like crossing your legs) can really be a wonderful accomplishment. I think for me it's being able to comfortabally be able to bend over and tie my shoes with out struggling or huffing. Also playing volleyball and not feeling like I'm going to pass out.

    At Foolsfitness we may be award winning, but we are surrounded by heroes and true inspirations in mastering healthy bodies! Thanks- Alan
