Valentine's Day went well yesterday, we up and busy from 6 am until midnight. Nonstop pretty much. We decided to trade in one vehicle, which wasn't worth more than scrap money sadly and got a newer much nicer van for the family. Also had the red van towed into the shop today so we should soon by March have 2 vehicles driveable. Still trying to get hubby to let me get rid of the grand am we have since it doesn't run and it kind of a pain in the butt at the moment. We did end up going out to eat last night, at a nice little diner in our little town. Wonderful people and wonderful food. I even got a small box of chocolate, but that's all I wanted. Thanks to my dad for watching the kids so I could do all that, he may be limited in what he can and can't do, but he loves his grandkids and helps as often as possible. Oh I even got my present for myself, finally got my treadmill, makes the budget tight again, but we can be stingy on our money and save more once we finish the house. Plan on moving into it before summer. Tried out the treadmill today, loving it although the speeds are higher than what I am used to and I am afraid to do the incline since the stress test I had proved to be scarier when they added an incline. So I think I will just pay attention to my body, and make sure I take breaks as needed. Today got a drywall hoist, so I hope that means that we are moving forward on the house, wish they were cheaper though or that we were a lot stronger but not much you can do there. All in all very busy 2 days, but wonderful 2 days despite everything going on. I hope all my wonderful SparkFriends had a great Valentine's Day and got what they wanted or were hoping for.
I made some new mini goals to work towards such as lose 10 more pounds by June 1st, lose 25-35 by my wedding anniversary and to lose 40 by next new years. Would love even more if I could hit my goal weight at the end of the year. But I know as I get lower on the scale, some pounds will be a lot harder to come off. But that is okay, I will not give up. I am determined. I want to be skinny again like when I got married before I turn 30. Now on to the photos.... lol
