My First Vlog :)

These accent vlogs have been all over the place.  So, what better time than now for me to make my own?!

It's a little awkward...I keep laughing at myself...and apparently I have shifty eyes.  So...sorry about that.  :)  I did this at work with the video-camera on my iPhone.  I had the questions on my computer screen, so I kept looking back and forth.

Anyway..I'll introduce myself as a SOUTHERNER first.  And now, please watch my video because it's my first one and I feel like a moron.  (That's pronounced MOW-RON down here in South Carolina, by the way, y'all.)  :)

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught
And answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?

Now that y'all have heard how southern I am, I'm going to go enjoy a little SOUTHERN cooking!  :)  

And for those of you concerned about my diet... :)  I have lost 10 pounds!  Yay!  However..the last three pounds came off because I've been hurling my guts.  I had some sort of stomach bug Wednesday and Thursday.  And I only ate saltines and drank gingerale and threw up.  So...there's that.  I haven't really ate anything for the past two days!  This bbq plate is my reward to myself. 

BUT...this is actually a pretty healthy choice.  :)  BBQ is soaked in vinegar, which is great for dieting.  And I chose two sides of veggies instead of a side of rice and one veggie.  PLUS, I ate less than half of the plate.  I haven't had much of an appetite lately because of my virus.  And even before then, I've been eating much, much healthier.  I can already tell a difference in the way my body reacts to food.  Mentally & physically, I have zero desire to STUFF MY FACE full of food.  Three weeks ago?  I would have forced down every single bit of bbq on that plate.  Baby steps work, because today..I had no such desire.    

I'm also a firm believer that depriving yourself of everything good and yummy and beautiful is not the way to lose weight.  When I have a craving, I'll eat what I want *IN MODERATION*.  This will keep me from blowing my new eating habits later.  :)

And speaking of blood work results from last week came back clear!  Forgot to tell y'all.  AND the dr. forgot to call me.  Good think I wasn't dying.  ;)  

Happy Friday, errybody!  XOs
