So close...

Sunday, March 29, 2009

yet so not there yet! April 1st is my goal date to get to goal weight. I am not going to make it unless I lose 3 pounds in two days. I'm not willing to do anything unhealthy or crazy or whatever to make that happen. So, resetting my date. But this time, I'm setting it for sooner. I think I gave myself too much time to lose the three pounds and ended up stalling. April 8th, I will be at my goal weight of 130. When I make that goal, I will buy myself a cute set of matching under-things. emoticon



Got it done!

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Well, after signing off from my Spark friends, I started the responsible thing and made menus followed by a grocery list. I even checked the menu for tonight's dinner. Good thing I did too! I needed to pull some meat out of the freezer!

DH and I got to our appointment on time and then I did my grocery shopping. Forgot the receipt to return the track pants, so I'll have to try again on that. Also, forgot all of my reusable bags and the tote I haul groceries in. Not bad, though, for doing everything at 11:00 at night!

After doing the menus and planning around my MIL's visit, I found out that I planned the wrong weekend! She'll be here in two weeks, not one! Dang it!!! I have to redo everything to fit her nutrition/diet plan. My son has Celiac, but isn't too terribly sensitive. However, MIL also has Celiac and is VERY sensitive to any gluten. Cross-contamination is a big thing we have to watch out for with her. Also, she has some lactose intolerance, has difficulty with red sauces and I think she found something else she's allergic to. DH is supposed to find out tomorrow what that is. Once he does, and I figure out exactly when they'll be here, I'll rearrange the meals that I planned for the next two weeks.

I'm a planner and things like this mess me up!! My own fault though. I wrote down the wrong weekend. Oh well, at least the kids will have Nana and Poppa here for Easter. That will be nice for everyone.


So much to do...

Friday, March 27, 2009

and little time to do it. DH and I have an appointment 1st thing in the morning (okay, 9:00, but it feels first thing). Afterwards, I plan to return some track pants, do my grocery shopping (three stores) and go to the library. I want to do all of the errands before coming home since it will save me a good 45 minutes of driving AND the gas.

Here's the thing. I don't have my menus done yet. Since I don't have menus, I don't have a grocery list. And here I am Sparking! Anyway, after I get the menu and list done, I need to gather all my documents for tomorrow's meeting. Looks like I'll be working out AFTER my errands!!

Time to be responsible. emoticon Signing off now. Later taters!


Update on all my goals

Thursday, March 26, 2009

HPC - Haven't done any pushups in about two weeks. My back is getting better, but isn't quite there yet. Close, really close. Maybe by Sunday I can do a progress test and start again.

No DP - I had one can on Tuesday morning on the way to work. I was TIRED and hungry, so I drank a DP and ate a string cheese. None since, thought. Feeling pretty good about this one.

Reach goal by 3/31 - Um, not so good. I was up to 138 two days ago!!! It wasn't real and I'm back down to 133.6 as of this morning. I did get some advice from a fellow Sparker to Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince, Dinner like a Pauper. Tried it yesterday and today and planning it again tomorrow. Seems to be helping. THANKS EMPRESS0007!

One unassisted pull up - See back has prevented me from working on this. That, and I'm not finding the motivation to bother! Bad attitude, but that's the one I have now. I'm sure something will change.


Long awaited pics...

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Okay, so long awaited by me, but it sounds good, right? I tried taking pictures and having my kids take the pictures and I'm still very unhappy with that old woman! LOL!! My hair looked really good after I left the salon yesterday. Of course, I couldn't recreate it today. I'll try again tomorrow with some different styling tools/techniques/curses. emoticon

Bangs are trying to take off, but other than that, this is about right. It's my own style and my daughter and I do NOT have the same haircut!
