I get so busy sometimes, I don't know with what, and Kirk probably is wondering the same thing :) but I just don't always find time to get online. But I have found a small gap of time, its called Tub Time. No, not for me, but for the girls in the afternoons. They love it, and I can get out the laptop and have a little "me" time. So here I sit in the bathroom, typing away, telling little girls to sit down on their bottoms so that I can have a few minutes to use the computer :)
This was short today, its time to wash and then go have afternoon snacks!
I want to share, my newest favorite blog (Knock-Off Wood) is having a $50 giftcard giveaway! The GC is for either Lowes or Home Depot, whichever you prefer. Just leave in your comment that you were referred by Laura Johnson, because if you get chosen, then we BOTH get a GC!!! So go enter, I am saving for a kitchen floor!!! :)
I had a horrible week this past week with eating right. We went out Thursday to Applebees, I had a small meal, they serve weight watchers meals there. Then we went out for frozen yogurt, but it was sugar free, so that night wasn't horrible. Then, we went to Red Robin Friday night with kirk's family. I had a cheeseburger in a lettuce wrap, with a side salad, but they put tortilla strips on the salad (which was delicious), I thought I was only going to eat half my burger,but with out the bun it just all got eaten because I didn't get filled up as fast as if I had eaten a bun. It was sooo good though. Then, Saturday night (Kirk's bro and family came down for the weekend on Friday, and we went out a lot, which was nice to see them and hang out) I had a triple combination at Sizzler, yes I know, what a pig I was. But kirk said it was valentines day so go for it, because it is my favorite. It is steak, Malibu chicken, and 6 butterfly shrimp, and I had salad bar and steamed veggies with it. So to make up, Sunday I made the healthiest lasagna I know how to make, which is delicious too, but we had Lali's party, so I had cheesecake AND a slice of chocolate cake! I am full of confessions right now! And I had some extra icing because it was homemade and you have to taste it as you make it to make sure it is good. SO, then on Monday when the Trev and Lali left, we all went out to Artic Circle for lunch for the kids to play one last time, and I had a salad, but it had a ton of cheese on it, but I used no salad dressing. Does that make me feel better, to write a bad thing and a good thing, yes, it does make me feel better. And, one last confession, yesterday, I had another piece of that chocolate cake, then threw the rest away (I can't handle the pressure of it sitting there uneaten on the counter), and I had 3, yes 3, of the granny B's frosted pink sugar cookies, each on is like 5 points, and I only get 25 points a day. I can't believe it.
So, after a weekend of eating what sounded good and smelled good, I am having junk food withdrawls again. I thought I had kicked it, but I guess it will always be a battle :(
Anyways, after my list of confessions (not that anyone really cares, but I want you all to know that it is so hard to always be good)
my weigh in report is:
This week - one and a half pounds.
Total for the 4 weeks is - thirteen and a half pounds!
I really got to start exercising. Does typing count? :)
I know I usually weigh in on Wednesday, but I had to check anyway this weekend, and I have hit the 10 lbs mark! So super excited! I was gonna start trying to go to the gym this week, but Ashley has woken up with a cold (again) so she can't go to any friends houses to play for a couple days. Arg. Maybe I can get myself up early to go walking with Rosco. Thats a big MAYBE. haha. We will see. But still super exciting for 10 lbs! :)
We are selling our toddler bed if anyone knows someone that can use one. Asking $35 and it is made from solid wood, painted white, needs a touch up or re-paint job because it's been used and whatnot. Also, the princess decals come of for boys!
Week 2 has been good on my weight loss plan. Total, I have lost approximately 7 lbs in these past two weeks. Yea! Now, I am sick again, a cold this time, thank you Ashley, so I will start my exercising next week when I am feeling better, I am getting someone in the ward to watch the girls so I can hit the gym. Stay tuned.
Oh, the chocolate thing is not as good as the weight loss. I did cave in and have a cupcake, yellow with chocolate icing. And, I ate about 10 M&M's this past weekend. While I am confessing, I also had a cupcake without icing (it was one that broke coming out of the pan). So that is my sugar confessions! Still, it's been good since I am still losing weight. :)
