What I'm Lovin'!

I decided to join in on What I'm Loving Wednesday.

Here's what I'm loving today!

I'm loving Pinterest! Thank you, Laura, for sending me an invite! I'd heard about it, but thought it's another site to waste time on & no thank you very much! Haha. But as soon as I was on it, i knew I'd found something that is right up my alley. I love it. I discovered today that it is blocked at work. Probably a good thing or I might never get any work done! Ha!

 I'm loving Nicholas Sparks. Reading my second book by him right now...The Guardian. Have you read it? Very, very good so far. Love finding new authors. And yes, I know. Everyone knows Mr. Sparks is good. It just took me too long to realize that!

BOOTCAMP, ZUMBA, & Sparkpeople! Seriously, my weightloss journey is going well right now. I'm getting somewhere with the eating - finally - & i actually miss exercise if i don't get to do it! We're learning new routines in bootcamp & tonight we had an awesome workout! Zumba is so much fun, I never stop smiling. If you're near me (you know who you are!) then please ask me for info & come to one or both of these! SO worth it!

As for Sparkpeople, well, I'm really loving it. I joined in 2009 but was never consistent with it. Now, because of the Insulin Resistance, i MUST track what I eat, especially carb intake & this site just makes it so easy. They have TONS of informative articles, message boards where everyone seems to be SO helpful & encouraging, and it just makes it really easy to keep track of everything! I love it!

My new Kindle. I was given my Uncle's kindle when we went to Grenada this past weekend. This is the 91 year old uncle who passed away in January. His wife asked me if i would like to have his Kindle...um, yes please? Is that weird? I don't mind it. My aunt said he would have liked for me to have it. I never thought I'd want a kindle until Brad got one - I realized they're pretty cool! I will always love actual books, but i do like the kindle a lot! Excited to have one - for free! :)

My husband. Seriously. I have definitely been a bit of an emotional basket case lately - & a little stressed out - & I have been SO thankful for Brad because he knows how to handle me. He knows the right things to say or do to help me feel better. And he never makes me feel bad about acting like an idiot. :) I really really love him!

 my friend laura edited this for me. uncle george took it in Grenada. Love it!

This picture. How funny is that! This is me (the one refusing to smile) with my sister, my mom & our cousin Ben. I just love it! My aunt posted it to FB the other day & i hadn't seen it in a long time.

So much more I'm loving, too! That it's almost the weekend for one! :) 

What are you loving this week!?


  1. I've read all but one or two Nicholas Sparks book. Love them all!

    Love that pic of you and Brad in black and white! And that last pic of you guys all young and stuff is awesome!

  2. Nicholas Sparks (movies from the books anyway..) makes me cry. I can't bring myself to read his books because I know I'll bawl like a baby.

    Horray for a new and FREE Kindle. Ok, I'll admit.. I'm finally getting around to wanting one.

    Sure hope you're feeling OK, Melissa. You seem to have an amazing hubby and that's wonderful. So glad he's there to help you feel better.

    Congrats on the weight loss still going well. I used Sparkpeople and when I tracked diligently and drank water and walked I lost weight the best. I've joined WW and did great when I tracked diligently there too. Sometimes it seems so hard to do something so easy though.

  3. I'm now following you on PInterest - be prepared to need a twelve-step group in a few days.

  4. LOVE Nicholas Sparks books. The Guardian is one of my favorites! Yay for a Kindle! Especially a free one! I'm so glad your weightloss is going great!

  5. I haven't read many of Nicolas Sparks' books, but the ones I have read have been good. Maybe I'll have to get the Guardian next!
    Have you read any Nicolas Evans? He's one of my favourite authors.
