Good Morning! My last post was *YIKES* in mid-March. Things just became very hectic around here and I blinked and boom, it was April. (Two kiddos hit by a nasty stomach bug stinks...but everyone is feeling better now!) I've continued to work on my scrapy magic ball afghan and I think one more ball will … Continue reading Social Media Break
Another birthday, a need for a new Thomas the Tank Engine Cake (here is last years cake). Eamon LOVES Thomas and it was the only cake I could possibly make. Onto Pinterest I went. Then, I attempted. It all starts with 2 8 inch round cakes. Straw to hold the layers together. Was going to … Continue reading Pinterest Win!
This week, I've been making pajama bottoms and hats to send to a friend. I'll be posting those at the end of the week. Today, after a killer spin class, I really (emphasis on REALLY) wanted a bagel. However, bagels are at least 9 points on Weight Watchers...I'm not willing to spend 9 points. So, … Continue reading Bagels
This week I am down 1.2 pounds (a big amount in my slow climb). I successfully avoided all the treats and bad food at work (it was nurses week) and I tracked everything. It showed on the scale. Unfortunately, life got in the way of working out and I pretty much fell into bed at … Continue reading Weekly Weigh In
Well, I stayed the same this week. Not surprised. Non scale victory-I tracked everything! Looking over my WW food log, I could have made better choices. I should have had more veggies, I realized I didn't have my shakeology this week (helps with my sweets craving) and my workouts were not up to par. This … Continue reading Weigh-in Day
Today was weigh in day. The scale was not a great friend today... -0.2 Honestly, I expected this after losing 6.2 pounds last week. Despite the scale, I think I had a really good week! I tracked every bite that went in my mouth (including my dad's potato salad on Easter-one of my favorite foods). … Continue reading Weigh In Day
Starting January 1st, I decided to get serious about losing the 17 pounds I sadly let creep back on after losing 50+ pounds of pregnancy weight. I'm trying not to beat myself up about it, but I'm disappointed in myself. Since January 1st, I have done a good job (I think a pretty darn good … Continue reading Food Reboot
At the library I saw Trisha Yearwood's Trisha's Table on the shelf. I love her cooking show, so into my book pile it went. Rarely do I actually have all the ingredients for a recipe the day I take out the cookbook, but I did this time! In fact, I had been looking for a … Continue reading On a whim…
In our neck of the woods, one way you know spring is on its way is Sullivan's opens for the season! Located in South Boston, it's yearly opening is reported on the news and is a big deal to my husband. Since we met, we have always gone to Sullivan's opening weekend for hot dogs … Continue reading Spring is on its way!
So far, my exercise plan for 2016 has been right on track. I have been doing at least two runs per week. I joined our local YMCA and have become a Monday Night Spin regular. I have been doing 21 Day Fix workouts and 90% of the time have been exceeding my daily step goal. … Continue reading Nutrition Reboot
