Weight: 186.5

Okay, yes, I was bad this weekend! To celebrate the end of the contest at Kmart (and being the only one in Palatka to finish it), I went a little crazy with the leftover Easter candy. Let me tell you...I'm never doing that again!!! I have been sluggish as heck all day and then I gave blood. Not the smartest idea either, but hey, there's another 1/2 pound...bwhahahaha! So anyway...

Welcome to my Blog!

The goal of this blog is to keep me straight as I prepare for my cruise to Alaska and continue on my weight loss journey. My goal is to get to 150 or 160 (I was a size 10 at 170 so I can't see myself getting too much smaller than that) by the end of summer. Will I do it? Heck yeah! I'm so tired of thinking negative all the time...it's too exhausting! So, if you're wondering about the name of my blog "A Dance with Adam", here's that story. I love the tv show CSI: Miami. From a video and film background, aesthetically, it is a very well put together show (and the writing is pretty good too). My favorite character on the show is Eric Delko (played by Adam Rodriguez). Well while talking to a friend of mine, who is also trying to lose weight, she asked me what an impossible reward would be that I would give myself if I got to my target weight. I jokingly said "a salsa dance with Adam Rodriguez". Now, you want to talk about coincidences??? I was watching the credits from the episode last Monday and lo and behold, the DP (Director of Photography) on the show was also the DP on "Just a Dream" (the movie I worked on in 2001). So, just for giggles, I sent him an email (it's been seven years, highly doubted he would remember me)...and he responded. Asked how I was and the usual niceties and asked if I was still in the "business". I told him family obligations and life took me in a different direction, but that I would love to get back to it. He told me to come for a visit when the new season starts!!! So guess who has a very REAL goal for herself??? Hence the name of my blog... :c)
