- Drive a Mini Van (As you can see in the photo above I already did that one working at Aggie Ice Cream.
- Listen to Beyonce. (Did that one this morning. Can't help it the Single Ladies Song just moves me in the right direction when I work out.)
- Go scoop Ice Cream At Farrs after Graduation.
Well folks. I just broke number three today. So if you want to see me come out of retirement of scooping in all my Blake Got Fat Glory I will be at Farr's Ice Cream from 12-5 Wends, 3-9 on Friday, and 5-10 on Saturday. Cause I am just that cool.
If you are one of the first people that come into see me I will give you my 2 free scoops. Because if I eat them its going to be Blake got Fatter.

To quote the Little Aunt "Why am I doing this?"
Eyes closed! But photographed in Vivid Color!
My favorite! She looks so grown up! Who said you can't wear a prom dress everywhere?
The Princess and The Nip.
The Momma and the Princess. The Princess encouraged the Momma and hence the marthon runners were born. I on the other hand ran away to Sun Valley to stuff my face with Despos (formally Desperados) and ice cream really healthy right?

Read a book...
Or just lay back and take a brief nap.
Sometimes you just need to take a break now and then. But come monday its back to southbeach and workouts trying not to look fat anymore. However today is just a day to relax, breathe for a moment before I start work again at Farr's. So for right now I am going to enjoy the moment. I invite all of you to join me. Will you do that? Take a big breath and go AHHH...
I 'll even join you.

It may come down to this.
I might have to return to the place of my weight gain inorder to keep myself in the lifestyle that I have grown fond of. Not Starving.
So Blake Got Fat Readers...
Yes I should Go Back
Run Away and keep on with the job search..
Check yes or no. (Cause this has a strange resemblance to those notes you used to pass back and forth through Middle School).

What can I say? When you get offered a free flight via Vern Farr Airlines who am I to no? As I was virtueously applying for jobs this morning a rare oppurinty occured. The phone rang and it wasn't for Momma Joye it was for me! Huzzah Miracles of Miracles! (At first I thought it might be a somebody calling for a job interview) so in my best professional voice I asnwered. It was my grandpa.
But that was okay.
Cause after I recovered from the disappointment he called and said he was flying to Sun Valley. Did I want to go? Why not? Score one for unemployment! Want to go out to lunch? Sure! Want to go for a hike? Why not my schedule is already empty! Want to go to Sun Valley? Why not?
So being unemployed does have its benifts. Who knew?
Bridget Jones Moment coming tonight? Are you exicited? I know I am!
Here's a little juciy secret. Emily, Momma Joye and the Nip are running the Ogden Marathon tomorrow. If you are in downtown Ogden with nothing to do..around 10:30 or so you should go cheer for them. Tell them that I sent ya.

On a totally off topic interuption. Karma rules! So my Dad has been given me grief about Old Faithful in the backyard and the lost keys etc. Well I went to church came home and he attacked the main sewer line. Mine was a temporary fix. His? Not so much. Hum..karma gotta love it...
Now back to mothers
I love my Momma Joye! But I was thinking today during Sunday school about all the others who have helped me, taught me so much this year. So if you don't mind I am going to honor them for their stand out acheivement and give them the first ever Blake Got Fat Momma Award! (I'm not calling my momma fat its just the way the award sounds its our first year give us some time)
To Second Mom Ms. Holli: Thank you for your friendship to my mother. It is this friendship and love that teaches me about strong friendships and people to turn to when times are rough.
To my Aunt Pam: She is a wonderful person! Her laugh and geniune care about me through out my entire life has made me feel so special to be her nephew.
To my Aunt Jill: I love my little aunt! Thank you for always being there for me and letting me go with you everywhere, for those long Grey's Anatomy talks while we hike, and most importantly for just being you!
To My friend April: This last year I have witnessed your strength and determination and geniune love for your family. It has not been easy for you and while I wish I could say that I was the one that gave you comfort you were the one that taught me the value of grief in a person's life, to look for ways to serve. I am so grateful for you.
To My friend Alli: For a first time mother whose baby is constantly fighting for his life, it is you that has shown me that motherhood can be done with grace and strength. Each day you fight for your child. Each day you learn about a different aspect of human suffering but you remain hopeful. To you I must say thank you for teaching me to be hopeful and postive when days are rough. I cannot begin to complain.
To My Grandma Dar: If anyone has taught me to be a better human being it is you. Grandma Dar has taught me the most important lesson. To give yourself first. To give a little wether it be food, whether it be your money, or most importantly yourself. To always think of "what can I do for others instead of myself" and also to laugh. Selfless is the lesson I learn from you.
To My "Grammy"- Ms. Holli Mom- Taught me the power of prayer. At Harry's funeral I had the rare chance to listen to her pray. If I could pray with such love and devotion, and hope I would be so ever grateful.
To Amy: Thanks for being the number one Blake Got Fat Fan!
To Kathy: Thanks for all the Laughs at Aggie Ice Cream and being one of the best bosses! I miss you everyday!
To all of you who has said hello, cared, given, spoke to me I love you and wish I could spend more hours talking about how you have helped me on my weight loss journey!
Bridget Jones Moment:
Breakfeast: 2 bowls of Lucky charms
Lunch: A half of tuna fish sandwhich on Sourdough.
Dinner: A hamburger, baked beans, watermelon, strawberries, honeydew and a piece of my awesome aunt Robins cheesecake. Plus a million pieces of carmel corn.
Its time to start up the south beach again.

Things have been a little outdated lately since I've moved home to Ogden. After trying to get adjusted to the Bungalow, job searching, and getting on the internet its been hard to post! I miss all of you!
Things have been going okay. Trust me. When I get more settled its going to be a everyday show again!

(This isn't me in the picture)
Some thoughts on Graduation
I didn't know what would be done with me.
When my name called.
All I could think of was how grateful for the English gentleman who actually read my name right.
Did I smile? All I could think of shake the mans hand and smile.
Did I smile?
The only words that could out of my mouth were "Thank You"
Walking down the ramp.
Four years for two minutes.
Do I feel educated?
Am I done learning?
Smelling the wet cardboard.
