Marvy Monday

Good morning my lovelies! How was your Christmas? Did Santa get you what you wanted?

We went to see Shrek the Musical on Christmas Eve at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. It was fantastic! The storyline was the same as the movies but the music was all original and the singing was extraordinary! I LOVED IT! If you get a chance to see it in your hometown, I would highly recommend it! One notable thing was the walking we had to do to get there. We had to walk 4 city blocks and then once we got in the theatre our seats were in the balcony so we had to walk 4 flights of stairs. At intermission, I went to use the ladies room and pick up a souvenir so I walked up and down the stairs again to get there so got lots of walking in on Friday. Saturday was a nice lazy day. We watched Despicable Me, napped and nibbled for most of the day. I did end up eating too much and paying for it yesterday but with lots of water and tea I am feeling better today. What makes me sad is to think how much of my life I spent feeling crappy like that from overeating. I do not miss it AT ALL!

Today we are getting together with my extended family. I have cousins that live in San Diego and they are up here for a few days so we are getting together for brunch at 11:00 today. It originally was supposed to be tomorrow but the plan changed. My work was very accommodating and let me switch my time off so I am only working until 11:00 and then I will be off the rest of the day. Yay!! I would like to get out for a walk or bike ride but I will see how I am feeling.

I did happen to get on the scale this morning and I am at 262. Which means I am up 2 lbs. It is the same old song and dance with these few pounds. Getting pretty old... I am armed with my bodybugg today and I have new resolve to get these lbs. off of me once and for all.  I have a new incentive which I will talk about more tomorrow. I am super excited about it though! Until next time...


  1. Glad you liked Shrek! Would you believe I haven't even seen the movies yet?

  2. Sounds like you had a great Christmas, Katie! I hate that "over ate" feeling, now! Why do we do that to ourselves? Ugh! But, honestly, I remember a time not so long ago when that feeling was what I strived for at every meal!! We have come a long way. Sometimes, we just need to remind ourselves of where we came from, so we know that we don't ever want to go back!

    Onward and Downscale!

  3. Glad you had such a good Christmas - can't wait to hear about your incentive for breaking through the pounds!

  4. Sounds like you had a lovely time!! :))))))
    And keep working. You'll come back down. Promise.


  5. So glad you got to enjoy the show. I am looking forward to reading about your new incentive. ;)


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
