#MotivatedMonday and #SelfieSaturday Merge


I'd love to tell you that this was a brilliant idea, whose time has finally come but the reality of it is, I just was too busy to post my #SelfieSaturday all weekend. This morning as I got up and realized that it was #MotivatedMonday and I still hadn't done #SelfieSaturday I figured I should roll with it.

Saturdays tend to get bogged down with real life things and psuedo-life things that I have to accomplish. I visit my father most Saturdays and I try to get caught up on the mountain of online work (blogs, routines, videos etc) that are growing at an alarming rate. Can't bitch about it really, since it is my hobby and my responsibility after all, but it made it seem more intelligent to just take two days to get the #SelfieSaturday printed and then post it on #MotivatedMonday where it belongs.

Well with that I have some good news anyway for those that have been following the beginning process of my dieting cycle. It FINALLY coincides with my company's "Fat Out" competition which I am in charge of, but can never participate in. Here as I am floating around 180 lbs I can drop my usual yearly 15 to 20 lbs and maybe get a prize for it too. Wish me luck!
