I've got a keeper

My BF is such a sweetheart.

Today was my first day back to work after a couple of weeks, and to kickstart my morning he made a scrumptious breakfast. Scrambled eggs with red, yellow, orange peppers & onions thrown in the mix, with 2 slices of maple bacon.
Now.. not really a breakfast of champions, but damn it was good! He doesn't work until 11am, but he set his alarm for 7am to get up and make me brekkie.

(oh, I should point out he made omelettes for ourselves + another couple Sunday morning... all-by-himself... in fact, he kicked me out of the kitchen on several occasions!)

Yup... definitely a keeper.

I wasn't tagged for this survey, but I saw it on Good Gals Inc's blog so I thought I'd give it a go.

Here are the details of this survey/tag:

List the 10 reasons why you are losing weight
Tag 5 other
Be sure to post these rules on your post
Be sure to link the blog that tagged you
See, simple, right?

10 of my reasons for losing weight are:

1) I am NOT at all happy with my body. My confidence and self esteem has dropped tremendously since I've gained weight, and I want to feel good about my image again.

2) I want to feel comfortable in a bathing suit. I think it takes a lot of courage to walk around in a bathing suit/bikini with a low self image, and I don't think I have it. I would like to just feel confident in my skin and not feel as though the whole world is looking at me, wondering if I am preggo due to my jelly belly.

3) I need to feel energized again. I have really not done a lot of excersizing lately and I get so pooped just walking up a flight of stairs. I don't even remember huffing so badly when I was a smoker! I will definitely use excersize as a weight loss technique, which, in turn will help me get my energy levels up again.

4)I will be standing in a wedding in July, and I want to look and feel great for all of the photos!

5) There is a big possibility I could be marrying Dave someday soon (not engaged, but it's a possibility) and when that time comes, I'd rather be stressing about wedding planning preparations, than my weight! hahaha

6) I want to take control of my health and understand that the choices I make achieve results. That may not make sense, but right now I don't really think much about my health. If I were to eat better and excersize more I would see results, and that would give me the satisfaction in knowing I was able to take full control of my actions.

7) I miss my old clothes! A lot of my tops have turned into belly shirts... literally, and I really miss my old jeans! I still have them in a box, and I don't reaaaaaaaaaaallly think I'll be able to wear them, but if i can at least pull my old jeans up past my thighs I will be a very happy camper even if they don't zip/button up!!

8) I want people to stop thinking I am pregnant. (silly, I know, but it gets old!)

9) I want to be a motivator for Dave. If he sees that I can do it, not only will he be proud of me, but I think it'll have a chain reaction and it will keep him working his hardest to achieve positive results.

10) In the end, Just want to know that i can do it. I want to see myself put a plan of action into motion and actually successfully follow through with it.

Well, thats it. Not the most fabulous list, but there it is.

I am tagging:

Happy Monday Everyone!
