One thing I've had to do is get use to myself in my own skin. It's hard to accept this current body of mine as beautiful, but the more I stay in the 'nude' the more I embrace the beauty my skin provides.
How do you embrace yourself to fill beautiful?

Got some pretty good coupons, and sales this weekend. Already hit the meat sale today. I need to get stocked up on some basics again, since it's the first of the month. Later today I'll be getting 12 dozen eggs for $0.99 plus a few other items.
On Sat. I'll be going to a different store and get 15% off my entire produce order. On top of that the bag lettuce is on sale for $0.99, after store coupon, plus I get an extra 10% before the 15% off the entire order. Don't think there is any excuse out there to not eat my veggies and fruits now. Heck the baby carrots are only $1 a bag this week, plus some other pretty sweet deals.
My milk will only be $1 per 1/2 gallon. I love this kind of sale. Can get two different types for me and my fiance. He prefers to have only whole milk, where I don't want all the fat. Typical male, at least frm what I've observed, he drinks it all way to fast. I swear I got to go buy him milk at least every 1 and a half weeks to 2 weeks.
Since I got the groceries going pretty squared away I need to focus on getting the exercise in. School has started, and I got a lot of projects to finish for the weeding, but that is no excuse to not get the exercise in. I do plain to walk on most days, but think I should be planning on lifting weights while at the gym. I want to lose a dress size by my weeding day on Halloween. To do that I got to kick my shelf into doing what I need to do.
The schools gym is free for me to use, and it's got some pretty good equipment for the athletics to use. The main thing Is that I need to budget my time so I can make sure to hit them gym at least 3 times a week, and walk to and from school as much as possible.
The walk to and from school is about 1 hour and 10 minutes. On top of that is up and down hills. So all together a pretty good sweaty work out. Plus I have the weight of my books on my back. That defiantly has to add in to the calories burned, or muscles build.
Can't wait to see the inches drop this month.

I know I've kind of been M.I.A., but I've been super busy. I rescued this batch of kittens from the back bush and had to find them homes.
Their momma decided that our bushes were idle for keeping her kittens safe. We noticed them and had to do something.
So we started with a food and water bowl. Couldn't let momma starve. She needed to keep nursing her babies. That is also when I started seeking help to catch them on some local group pages on Facebook. That's where I was able to get a trap and help with getting vouchers for fixing.
At first they were wild and hiding where we couldn't get to them. With food and patient we were able to get everyone, but momma to break out of their shale. Momma had to be re-released after her fixing.
With her gone the kittens really started getting into the attention. It was about another week until they were able to go get fixed. I'm so glad I was able to get vouchers, and community support, to fix this guys before I adopted them out. Now I know they will never produce another unwanted kitten.
They hated the cones of shame, bu we couldn't let them out till they were healed 2 weeks later. They got use to it, but it was funny to watch them figure out how to eat. Had to wipe the cones off occasionally, because food was stuck on it.
They really got into playing. Every night you hear them going to town with their toys. It was cute to watch them play with the toys.
It was about two more weeks till they started getting adopted out. The first one to go was the girl, we called her little grey. Her new momma had seen one of the flyers and fell in love.
We had the other three boys on display at the newspaper parking lot sale. A friend works their, and managed to get us a spot. It was during the first of two festivals this town has. We had a lot of intrest but no one took any at that time.
However that evening we got a message by a gale on facebook. She want Big Grey, which she has now renamed Duke. Which fits his attitude perfectly. He would push his siblings out of the way for your attention. Such a demanding little kitten. I know he will live up to the name Duke. When she told me his new name I just kept singing The Duke of Earl song in my head.
That meant only two more to go. Will it wasn't long till we were contacted by another person about the kittens. His son had fallen in love with Boots, and really wanted him. His son is a 5 year old autistic child who just started talking a few months ago. His parents said he has been bugging them for a kitty for a while now. They tried to get his interest in other animals, but he wanted Kitty. When asked what he would name Boots, he said "Kitty!" All happy and excited. Of all the kittens to have the little boy picked the bravest, easy going, and curious of the bunch.
Which left one kitten behind. He was the shiest of the bunch. We had to put restrictions on him. No kids, animals, and indoor only. We did have a few people contact us, but once we told them the restrictions they were no longer interested.
While we were dealing with possible adoptions Runt was getting very strongly bonded to my fiance. It look like no one would take a kitten with all those restrictions. We had a really long talk about it and after hours of talking we decided it would be best for the kitten if we just kept him. So we renamed him Apollo.
You could say Apollo is pay back to my fiance for Eris. Eris is the exact same in attitude, only she is bonded with me. For the first year she would not deal with anyone but me. It got to the point that I was carrying her room to room. And the whole time my fiance was making fun of me. Now it's his turn and trust me I'm returning the favor on those jokes about me and Eris.
His coat is beautiful. Can't wait t see the full grown version. On top of this I have wedding stuff to do. I've gotten most of the invitations made and handed out. I also have my wedding dress/costume pattern and material. Just waiting on the rest of the fabric to come in this Friday. Hopefully in time for me to catch the bus.
I'm making the grey one, but my colors are black and purple. I'm also making a velvet robe to go with the outfit. This will be the first big dress I've sewen together. I've done a lot of reconstruction sewing for skirts, shirts, and some dresses. So should be able to do this with out to much of a problem.
Now that all the kittens are gone I need to work on the props for the weeding. I got a month till school starts back up. On top of all this I've lost 10 lbs in the last 2 week.
I'm going to try and make a point to get back on here every day. No more need to run around like a chicken with it's head cut off.
