This is chicharron, the Mexican version of pork rinds. I know it sounds disgusting but don't knock it till you try it. All you need is some salt, cilantro, diced onion, lime or lemon and a fresh corn tortilla and you're set to go! PS don't even ask me how many points these are....

HA HA Moment

My sister absolutely can't stand that I can't pose for a "cute" picture! She swears that I make an awful model because I can't help myself from laughing uncontrollably or from making awkward facial expressions. The first two were semi normal and I thought I did a great job...

This is me still being good...

And, these last two are when the giggles begin to set in.... This is where she began to say "Ok, come on Marce, just settle down. Just a few more. Be serious and just pose."

But, I couldn't help myself!!!

This was the last picture before she walked off... I wish I could say I was sorry, but I'm not! haha! Love you, Mita.

South Texas Grown

For those of you who don't know my family let me give you a little bit of a background. My mom was born and mostly raised in Merida, Yucatan on the Mexican Peninsula and she eats EVERYTHING with chile! And, one of the most components of her chile is lemon. So, what you see below is a South Texas grown lemon and next to it is a regular sized tomato.

This here is our "puppy" or Dad... He's not all about taking photos, but my sister threatened him so he caved and here he is...

Decided to wear a ball cap to work today (we only dress up if we're meeting with clients) and I also decided to apply my make-up in the car. Everything was a perfect glow, including my C.O. Bigelow Coral Mint lip gloss, when I decided to apply the final touch ...mascara. (OK, OK! I know I broke a rule! everyone knows that lip anything always last but I decided to switch it up a bit and I got totally jinx!) Sooooo, I push the cap all the up to the top of my forehead to begin applying eye make up.

My right eye is perfectly perfect so I move to the left eye. I apply the first round of mascara the ball cap begins slip down my forehead so I readjust but evidently not enough because when I went to go in for round two of the mascara process...I miss my eyelash (because the dang cap got in the way) and stab myself in the freaking eye!!!! Now, my left eye is a total mess. Black mascara is now totally smudged both above and below my eyelashes. I immediately run my fingers to my eye to begin cleaning up the mess only to find that I STILL HAVE LOTION ON MY HANDS!! So, now my eye is burning as all get out, my make up is ruined on the left side of my face and I can hardly see!!!

Moral of the story....apply your make up at home and never wear a ball cap while applying mascara!

Super Sprint

Ok, it's official! I found a triathlon that I know I can finish.

The King Tut Tri will offer two events. The sprint triathlon will encompass a 500 meter swim, 12 mile ride, and 3.1 mile run while the Super Sprint AKA My First Tri will encompass a 300 meter swim, 6 mile ride and 2 mile run.
Save the Date: April 19th in McKinney, Texas
I'm doing this! It's motivating to finally have a goal insight.

Post Weekend

I lost .8 lbs last week. Even though i'm on the program I don't really feel "on the program" if you know what I mean. This morning I woke up with a heaviness over the impossibility of weight loss which I hadn't felt in so long, maybe even since before I started this program over a year ago.

My natural tendency is just to say "hey it's the holiday's....just start at the beginning of next year!" What a bag full of bull! It's all about choices. It's all a one day at a time deal. Between now and Thanksgiving I'll do my best to keep doing my best not this half-assedness I've been hitting lately.

FYI it's not just weight loss that is half-assed either! It's my spiritual life, it's my friendships, it's exercises, this blog's EVERYTHING!! So, my goals for the week are to keep track of all my points between Monday - Friday, exercise with Kourtney 4-5 days of our 6 day schedule, and blog at least once more week. And, my upmost goal is to actually spend some quality time alone (totally alone and mentally there) before the Lord.

For those of you out there that read this blog...................please, ask me how my goals are going this week.

Quick Update

Hello Everyone!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! It's been a busy few weeks on the Marcy Show.

I'm gonna try to make this short and sweet.

First off...I've not blogged because I've felt like a total loser! I mean the entire purpose of this blog was to track this weigthLOSS journey and because I've been gaining weight I really felt like blogging was pointless.

The fast went well. I got all the way down to 305lbs. Gained 8 lbs after my first meal. Then slowly ate my way back up to my starting weight. BUT, dang did my insides feel nice and clean!

A few weeks after my birthday bash and a few other parties I decided to (re)join Weight Watchers. My first weigh in was to be expected. It was both nice and a total surprise that the ladies missed me and remembered me. There was no love lost there...and no mercy either! I gained more than I realized. I was back up to 325lbs!

My second weigh in was last week and I lost 1.8lbs. Yah! for's a slow roll but I seriously can't fall off the wagon again until next summer! So, i'll need someone to kick my @#$@ sometime next year around May'ish. ok?

Not sure where Sir Chadwick and I are... we were sorta working out as partners not as trainer and trainee then it all sorta fell apart. I'm sad but I know it's for the best. He more than kinda ripped me a new one last week. Pretty much said that I couldn't rely on people to continually ask me where I am with working out and eating because it was high time that I got to doing it on my own for myself...ouch, huh? Well, I respect him a I took it like a big girl and didn't cry.

I've just recently started working out with a girl from my small group - we
re tri-training. I'll be sure to send you lots of funny stories of our escapades.

I'm excited about writing again. I'd normally blog during the day at work when my brain needed a break from numbers but here lately I've been way too busy to even think straight. I'll try to figure something out.

Thanks for your patience. Really.

Another Costume Party!

This year I decided to do something a little different. Ok, i just lied! I was so totally running out of time and ideas so I came up with this little number with the help of my sister and friend D. I wonder if you'll figure out what I am. PS.....I'm not a CAT!

FYI She's NOT Pocahontas!!! She's NATIVE AMERICAN!!!

Kristen! In all the years of knowing this chica this costume totally freaked me out! She's normally so quiet and laid back and to see her as hard core punk rocker sorta shocked me.

One of many "Un-Waldo's"

I'm a SKUNK!!!! Isn't that the cutest tail ever?!?!

My 31st Birthday

My 31st birthday went off with a bang! I was able to share it with people that I love and admire. Here are a few pics of the evening.
There was a Margarita Machine... and I may/or may not have had more than my fair share of drink for the night....
The theme of the party - Food that beings with an "M". Everyone was so creative! They provided goodies such as Mmmm Veggies, M&M, , McCandy, McSnickers, Musketteers, Macaroni and Cheese, Marzipan, Mississippi Mud Pie, Margarita's, Mexican Nachos & Marcy says fruit dip starts with an "M" fruit tray.

Good times! Krissie, Amber, Myself, Diane & Britt!

Nothing like a sneaky photo opp! This picture still makes me smile!
