Weigh In

Monday, March 11, 2013

Well the new changes I adopted March 1st along with some increased motivation must be working as I dropped 3 lbs this week. emoticon My goal for this month's challenge is 5 lbs so at this point I am confident I will surpass it however I won't allow myself to get cocky. I have learned in the past there is no sure thing when it comes to losing weight. So I am taking things nice and easy.

This past weekend was a bit tricky I must admit with the knowledge of Girl Scout cookies in the house and the darker mood I lapsed into due to family drama nevertheless I prevailed over both. Side note: DH did find the cookies from the other day and has now hidden them well as I have not seen them since the other day. Of course there is the possibility that he has already eaten them all. emoticon

I wasn't able to get all the sorting and cleaning of closets done that I had planned to do this past weekend. I was way too busy feeling sorry for myself (family drama) so I basically moped around the house for the past two days. It is however on the agenda for this week. DH and I also have some birthday shopping for the grandson to do along with bed shopping. A mattress set for the master and a bunk bed for the grandson's room. Even though he doesn't sleep over as much as he use to, his crib size daybed doesn't cut it anymore. He has been camping out on the couch whenever he comes over so DH and I want to remedy that with a new bed. His room here is a small one so we are thinking a basic bunk bed would work for him and any future grand (I can always hope), as well as for any great-nieces and nephews that visit.

DH and I are also seeing if the daughter will allow us to take the little guy to his favorite play place and to dinner tomorrow night or Wednesday. We are presently in a wait and see mode on this.

As to the concert fiasco from the other day. I have decided that I will use my FREE-TIME on that day for a SPA VISIT. My very 1st!!! We have a nice spa in town that I can get to and from by cab. I figure by than I will have dropped a bit more weight and therefore be a lot less self conscious about going to one. I am thinking having THE WORKS done is just what the doctor ordered. Have already informed DH of my plan. He grumbled as I figured he would but oh well, it is what it is. I am entitled to have a little fun too! emoticon

    emoticon emoticon Nice weight loss Sallie.
    I think that spa visit sounds just like what DH ordered for you while they are all gone. emoticon I am sure you will have a much more relaxing time doing that than trying to go along with them and be stressed out. It sounds heavenly. emoticon

    Congratulations on the 3 lb. loss, but doing so in the face of the past weekend is really impressive. Good for you! I think the spa visit idea is inspired - have a wonderful time.
