Week In Review...

Sunday, November 10, 2013

I finished my Fall cleaning today. I am very detailed as I go along. I find it destressing and love the result when I am done. My husband and I are the only ones living here at the moment so it should be relatively easy to maintain.
Hard to believe but in two weeks I will be taking all the Fall decorations down and putting up all of my winter (mainly snowmen) up. Yes, I am one that changes EVERYTHING as each season passes - including all pictures, carpets, couch blankets and pillows, etc... It takes me one full day to do it. Right now orange has filled my house. I find the brightness uplifting during these short, dark days.

I stayed on track last week and lost 2.5 lbs. I seem to be losing .5 lb per day. I am averaging 1200 cals per day. Saturday night's dinner is my "splurge" night. (my husband and I go out to dinner). I average 1550 calories on Saturday so it doesn't seem to be affecting my weight loss. I also get a lot more exercise minutes on the weekend.

Yesterday I got out to the mall. I hadn't been since last Christmas. They are doing a ton of road construction around it and it is such a chore to get up there. I walked around and tried to get some Christmas ideas for my family. I didn't really see anything. I did treat myself to a Greek salad at Saladworks and a sugar/fat free TCBY yogurt.

Last week I spent many hours at work - this week I am going to try to cut back. I am also going to run at least twice this week during my lunch break. The weather is supposed to stay nice here through Wednesday.

So, that is about it. I hope you have a great week!

Spark on! emoticon

    I stay away from malls this time of year, good job finishing your fall cleaning. I sort of got stuck after finishing the library. Good day to get back to it though as I have nothing to do away from home. Fantastic 2.5 lbs! Way to go.

    Wow - want to come clean and decorate my place next?

    I wish I were so organized! I am a clean freak, BUT hubby is a pack-rat, and thinks cleaning means moving his piles of stuff from one place to another. He is also a big do-it-yourselfer, which should really be called "start-it-yourself-then-leave-it-un

    I tell him we should buy a duplex, and he can have his half, with his piles, projects, tools, gadgets, etc. and I can have my side that he can't clutter up with man-detritus. Oh well....

    You must have great organization skills. I wish I could say our fall cleaning was done. Judith and I have been cleaning for about three weeks. Everything still looks the same as when we started and we don't even have day jobs. We are hoping to be ready to entertain again by Christmas. Good on the weight loss too.
