My Guilty Pleasure

At the gym on Saturday, I kept thinking that I only have 10 lbs left to lose. I was thinking of creative ways to remind myself of my goal. I thought about writing the goal on paper and taking a photo of it on my cell phone and making it the wallpaper, writing a list of reasons that I want to lose the weight and tape on the refrigerator, etc.

Today we ate at the Cattle Baron and all thoughts of my weight loss goal went out the window. I saw that chocolate mousse at the end of the salad bar and it was all over. The chocolate mousse is amazing!! I ate strawberries (hoping it balances out the bad) and consumed a whole bowl of chocolate mousse. It's my guilty pleasure for the week (no more cheating for me)! I think it was almost worth an extra 10 -20 minutes on the treadmill tomorrow.

The theme of the ATC challenge, Think Monday Think ATC, is eyes. I chose this particular ATC (mailed to someone in an ATC swap, kept a picture of it) because of the stamp of the eye. The eye is part of a stamp from Hampton Art Stamps. Loved the theme this week, I found several ATCs of mine that had eyes on it. It's probably not the focal point of this particular ATC, but I hope it still counts. The image of the girl is from artchix studio collage sheet (love their collage sheets).

San Antonio

The reason for my absence was my recent trip to San Antonio. It was so much fun. A much needed vacation. I loved the River Walk!! If you are questioning where to go on your next vacation, highly recommended staying on the River Walk and exploring the beautiful scenery, quaint boutiques, and of course lots of great food!! I'm back & missing San Antonio!!
