Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

Dieting is not for the faint of heart
So I've been on a diet for about 4 weeks now. There has been a slip up or two. But for the most part I've been trying really REALLY hard to eat better.
And I've been exercising. A lot. Everyday in fact. For close to 4 weeks now. Which doesn't sound like much but it's a HUGE accomplishment for me!
My husband just started dieting with me. On Monday to be exact. 4 days ago. Me, 4 weeks. Him, 4 days. And he's not been exercising.
So imagine my dismay when he stepped on the scale today and was already down 5 pounds. I've only lost 2. 4 weeks of dieting. 4 weeks of excercising. And I've lost a measly 2 pounds.
Believe me when I say the urge to single handedly eat an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's all by myself is quite strong right now. Especially since the England trip, which was my original motivation to start now, is more than likely off now.
But I will be strong. I will NOT drown my sorrows in food. I will not begrudge my husband for his instant success. I will persevere. I will be skinny, sleek, slender, strong, sexy, successful. I will!
