So I am waiting for the pain killers to kick in. So very glad its Friday!
Thanks for your help!
OK On to BYOC! So fun! Thanks Drazil!
1-What was your favorite cartoon as a kid? Is it still on today?
• Who remembers Battle of the Planets. Loved that show. And of course the Super friends!
Neither is still on these days that I am aware. The Super friends maybe in some form. All the super hero's have their owns cartoons now :)
2-Describe your favorite piece of clothing.
• .My WAY over sized sweats and hoodie. Everyone has always said that as I lose weight I should retire these clothes. But there is something about swimming in these sweats and hoodies that is so engulfingly comfortable. I don't think I will ever change that even when I am thin!
3-In the hopes of convincing Summer to arrive – I’m asking this question. Name a summer tradition you currently have or a tradition you want to start for every summer.
• At least one party. Not necessarily for a specific occasion but just to party. Because everyone needs to party like its 1999, and girls just wanna have fun right!?!?
4-For all of the newbie bloggers out there getting to know everyone – let’s answer this one. How long have you been blogging, what is your theme and how did you pick your name? Why did you start blogging? What kind of blogs are your favorite to read and follow?
• I started blogging about 3 weeks post-op. I use the ocean background because I love the ocean. Wish I lived closer to one. But I like the Colorado weather too. I struggled with my blog title for a while. I decided on Banded and Going Strong because I wanted a constant reminder to keep going. Banded is merely a tool but I need to push through the obstacles to keep going strong! Make sense? I started blogging because a friend of mine said I need to keep a journal. I had never blogged before so this was a bit out of my comfort zone. Since I was making all these changes getting out of my comfort zone was going to be a continual pattern. So I am doing everything I can to keep me out of my comfort zone. I pretty much only read Weight loss related blogs. I get my inspiration from those I follow. And you all keep me grounded and on the right track. The accountability is awesome!
5-Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life for us:
I blog about the real me. I hold nothing back here and am 100% honest no matter how humiliating or embarrassing it may be. If I am going to be successful in this WL journey then I need a place I can do that. I find that the community does not judge. This is important.
This week in blogland. I had hernia repair surgery last Friday and I am recovering. The fact that my company is closing is becoming more of a reality as the days get closer. I have done a lot of reflecting this past week. I am especially thankful to my followers and the bloggers I follow. I love Arrow, Supernatural, and Beauty and the Beast and are so glad they are all back on this week. I watched Breaking Dawn Part 2 this week too. Yes, I am a twimom. I love Twilight. And I will admit it!
And I have a massive pain in my tail bone. My literal pain in the ass.
Cheers to you my friends :) Have a great Friday night!
