I love coffee. I try to only drink it in the mornings, because it keeps me up at night.
Saturday we had guests for corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and soda bread, yum! With dessert, I made coffee....and had TWO cups at 8 PM. Stupid. I was up until 1 am. I am NEVER up that late.
So yesterday we did our grocery shopping (we go to 3 places to get the best deals) and then we came home and just relaxed for a while. I watched the movie Monsters (not the Charlize Theron one) www.imdb.com/title/tt147
which was decent. I don't regret watching it like some movies I've streamed.
Then we had leftovers for dinner. I'm up a lb because of the ridiculous amounts of sodium in my favorite meat, corned beef.
Last night we watched TV and I fell asleep on the couch for 2 hours, unintentionally. Then I slept in bed for 8 hours. I must be tired!! This morning I woke up with a horrible caffeine headache, ugh. Trying not to drink extra coffee today to compensate, because that just creates a vicious cycle.
Today we're going to Village Thrift in Pennsauken to look for old leather coats I can make boot toppers for my costume with! It's cheaper to buy a used leather coat then to buy a piece of uncut leather large enough. I'm also hoping they have a couple of tennis rackets. Our apartment complex has a tennis court and we've never used it. Tennis is good exercise! If it winds up being nice later I'm going to try to walk a couple of miles, or at least ask hubby to take Bingley to the park with me.
I was over my calories the past two days by about 100, which I don't really consider a failure. It's still way below maintenance. I made it down to 196.7 on Saturday and I know I'll get there again in the next few days, hopefully lower. I have 9 weeks to lose 6.7 lbs to make my birthday goal. =)
OOOOoh I got the fabric samples for my corset in the mail. Definitely prefer the one I thought I would. It's called Tinoa Bronze, and it's a Chenille Jacquard. Hopefully they will still have plenty of it available in June when I need to purchase it.
I am still super excited about the corset, even though I don't own it yet! I have been talking with CJADERUN, who owns a corset by this company, and she said the corset took FOUR INCHES off her waist! That's a good corset. I wish I had measured myself in my old corset to see how many inches I'd lost with them. Now they're both too big to wear. =( I will definitely measure with this one when the time comes. =)
Well I'm off to the races! www.youtube.com/watch?v=
Talk to you soon!
We got two tennis rackets for $2.90 each, a pretty moss green tablecloth I can use as a shawl for my costume for $0.70 at Village Thrift. Then later at Goodwill we found a trenchcoat length leather coat for my boot covers for $12.99 with plenty of extra leather for making some bracers to go along with it!!!
