So, I am going to post my end of month weigh in...I started the month at 188, I end the month at 178.
Not bad. I fully expect my weight loss to sloooowwww down in the coming months. It can't keep going at this pace, and I will keep my calories at or around 1400 for the month of February.
I drink one cup of coffee a day now.
I have replaced the other with a diet coke.
I drink 8 cups of water...
my food will be 300 to 350 for breakfast
100 for coffee
300 to 350 for lunch
600-700 for dinner.
I already have many good meals of all types in these calorie ranges.
In February, I have one high calorie day planned.
That is February 6th...my oldest's 16th birthday.
The rest of the month I will be op.
I want to be 170 by the end of the month...and it is a short month.
That leaves me with 27 days in which to create a 28000 calorie deficit....not easy.
I will give it all I've got...captain.
sorry, couldn't resist.
wow, my brain is firing on all cylinders tonight.
10 things that make me happy...
I would put up an award picture but at this point my right side of my blog is going to be dedicated to 10 lb pictures....which means I am going to have to put up a new one.
I will do this until I hit 138.
10 things that make me happy...
1.)Being in normal sizes.
2.) My new belted, double breasted, tweed jacket I bought today in size large for half off. :o)
3.) Picking my oldestdaughter up from a Birthday party attended by a group of good Kids. All lovers of God, all respectful and bright go getters. Watching her happy face as she talked about her time at the party. Knowing she has good taste in Friends.
4.) Buying clothes for my youngest and watching her try them on. It feels good to be able to buy your kids nice things.
Knowing this makes me appreciate how hard it must have been for my mom to have to tell us no to things all the time...
and steve here is one for you...something you didn't know about me. This is something I hold near and dear to my heart.
Wait... first let me finish my list.
5.) Leo adopted Duke (our lab) as part of his cat family today. He went up and rubbed his head against Duke's in greeting tonight as Duke was laying in the living room. very sweet.
6.) Finding out coral is one of my new favorite colors. Beats Beige, black, almost black and grey.
7.) That new song by Selena Gomez...the one that plays right off now on my blog.
I don't know what it's referring to...but I do know that when I finally go clubbing in a short skirt...I am going to request that song. What a great song. Full of energy and positive vibes.
8.) I finally got my girl scouts their well earned silver key ornament badges. I will be handing those out at the next meeting.
9.)I have Already put in our initial troop cookie order and nothing went kabluey.
10.) I threw away some of my husband's ratty old shirts and bought him some new ones...at 75 % off, there is a heck of a sale going on at the PX as they clear out winter gear to replace it with the spring clothes...so...woooohooo. Sale time. lol. sales make me happy.
Okay, so Steve,
something you didn't know about me...
Everyone knows I was poor growing up. My mom made about 3.25 an hour in 1986. She supplemented her income with sewing our clothes and growing our food and making door stops from fabric people gave her and government rice...
So anyways, one day we were in some store, I think it was meijers. We were clothes shopping and every year I got three pairs of pants, three shirts and socks, underwear and new shoes. I already had a coat. It was a grey wool coat with fur on the collar (not real lol)
I hated that coat.
Someone gave it to me.
I saw an 80's tastic coat.
Leather on the shoulders, charcoal grey with patchwork stuff, velvet and some flowers. can't remember the whole thing now.
I was 15, and old enought to know that an 89 dollar coat was NOT going to happen.
So, I turned around and was going to walk away and mom says, "You like that coat?"
I said, "No."
I knew we couldn't afford it.
She said "Yes, you do."
I said "Well, it's nice, but it's not worth 89 bucks."
She goes "Oh...okay."
So we finish shopping.
That Christmas I had only two gifts under the tree, while my brothers had five or six.
But I knew how my mom worked, she gave us an equal amount.
I opened one and it was a teddy bear.
The next gift I opened was that coat.
That coat represented four full days of work.
She worked four full days,
Just so I could have a fancy coat.
Well, that is about all...
Hope you guys have a great day,
Thank you again Alan for the happy blogger award.
