Well I made it through another week. LOL This weekend is going to be busy. Saturday afternoon/evening is my son's birthday party with his friends - I will have about six 12-year-old boys at my house for fun and games and a sleepover. Just about the time they all leave on Sunday morning, I will have to turn around and get the house straightened up for the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins to come over for the family celebration of the twins' birthdays at 2:00. No rest for the weary. I feel like I should have taken Monday off from work to give myself the break I am not going to get this weekend...
I had a blow out on the way to work yesterday morning so I got the car serviced this morning. Considering my 2003 Honda Odyssey has over 100K miles on her, she's doing pretty well. For $320 I got a tune up, wheel alignment, oil change, and spark plug change out. She's good for awhile now. Which is good because I can't afford to replace her anytime soon!
I am restarting the 17-Day Diet again on Monday. I had good results with it the first time I tried it - lost five pounds in the first seven days - so I am trying it again. I need to kick start my diet efforts because I am kind of stalled currently. I was stuck at 176 for the longest time, and have gained a couple of pounds since I stopped the 17-Day Diet from the last round so I am currently at 178. It would be nice if I could go back into weight loss mode this next week and lose another five pounds. That would finally put me below 176 and over 20 pounds total lost since I started the Spark People effort back in September.
That's about all that's going on with me. I hope I can get in my SP time this weekend with all of the planned festivities. I am going to try really hard! Have a great weekend!
