Busy weekend..

Monday, October 29, 2012

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! I sure did. We spent Saturday doing lots of shopping and errands, and Sunday at home with the 'kids' doing chores.

We managed to, without actually meaning to, buy a new quilt and area rugs for the bedroom! We also bought some of those vacuum storage bags - you know the ones, you stuff this huge amount of blankets or clothes into the bag, then suck all the air out of them with the vacuum and they're flatter than a whole-wheat pancake! This is a good thing, because I apparently have a ~thing~ for quilts and blankets, as after we got the new quilt home, Bill started sorting out the old ones and stowing them away. We have quite a few LOL thank goodness for the storage bags!

We hit all our favorite stores and got the groceries out of the way as well. It's nice to get running around done on one day so you can spend the next at home. I'm absolutely one of those people (introvert?) who needs at least one day at home to recharge and re-energize.

We also bought some totes and I sorted out summer/too small clothes.
I know it's only temporary, but it was bitter-sweet to pack away the size 16s that have been waiting patiently for me to squeeze my butt and thighs into them. Sigh. Ah well. I kept out the motivational pair to gaze upon longingly to keep up the desire to keep on track.

Sunday was spent doing laundry, cleaning, organizing, storing, sweeping, puppy grooming, snacking, and ignoring my menu plan. Pfft! Whatevs.

I've put the BodyBugg back on, set my game face...
emoticon my menu plan, established a schedule of activities for the week, and I'm ready.

Did you hear me, fat?
I'm coming for you, and I'm showing no mercy. You're doing DOWN!

    I'm late to this party! Glad you got the body bug back on. Mine is annoying the heck out of me. Only cause it's so honest and showing me how bad I am doing. UGH.. I keep pushing on knowing one day it will all click again.

    Hope you have a great weekend (now that it's back to the weekend)

    Your weekend sounds wonderful! It feels so good to get things organized. Don't fret because you'll be in those 16s soon!

    I hope you are having a great on-track start to your week!

    emoticon that fat must be feeling pretty nervous with an attitude like that! LOL

    I too need at least one day at home to recharge. I call them hermit days. The goal? Stay in your PJs all day. Doesn't happen to often but wow! Lovely when it does.

    You give those old fat cells a good @ss whoopin. They deserve it!

    Heh heh. I hear you on the "needing one full day at home"... That SHOULD have been yesterday for me - but of course had to run to town a couple of times gathering stuff for Z's school projects - I'll be so glad when that boy can drive! (Remind me of this in a couple of yrs, when I'm chewing my fingernails in anxiety ;-)

    & thanks as always for your kind comments.
