I weighed in at 152.5...Which is a loss of 2 lbs for the week.
A very good week.
Especially considering I have been losing about 3 lbs a month for the last few months.
That tells me either that I was on one heckuva plateau (my friend amber thinks so) or that I was fluffing too much on the calorie counting.
I think it was a combination of both.
But the combination of super serious exercise ( 5 days a week at the gym with a minimum burn requirement of at least 500 calories) and the calorie counting, seems to be producing pretty decent results.
I am in today at 1470 calories.
I would tell you all I ate but I am kind of sick of it already... I'll do it tomorrow.
I will put it at the bottom of my posts for those who are interested.
First I wanted to talk about a few more NSV's I have had lately that got knocked out of my conscious mind by the fact that I fit in my oldest daughter's (size 8) pants.
1.) I was walking back to my car from the gym the other day
(On my stairstepper days I decided to park a mile out from the gym so I could get my walk in and not bore myself to death on the treadmill...I walk in then back out...)
It's on the air force base...So as I am pondering on how much nicer the air force base is than the army base...twirling my way through my armband radio trying to find something that is NOT the black eyed peas, I come to a road where three or four cars are waiting to get out...as I approach the crosswalk I notice that the traffic they are trying to get out in has cleared (it's a difficult intersection) so I start waving them through...(they have to stop at pedestrian crosswalks...it's mandatory on post). So the first two go, and then this jeep stops and there is a blond guy (not bad looking) in the jeep..no top on this jeep...and he is yelling something but I can't hear him (I have my headphones in) So I pop an earbud out and he yells "You look good" In accented English...I say 'Thank you" (yeah me! I remembered.)...then the car behind him beeps and he waves and turns left...Apparently there are some polish troops training on peterson...That one beats the rednecks screaming "nice ass' a few months ago.
Well, that was nice.
Then Today, I was walking down the hall and my husband says 'You are too pretty'...and gives me a kiss.
I say 'Too pretty?'...
He says 'Yeah, I am going to have to ugly you up to keep other dudes away."
I thought that was sweet.
So, some quick pics of the house...
My living room with the new couch covers and the spray painted frames...

My curtains that I got from walmart..They are supposed to be 'kitchen' curtains..but I don't care. I wanted something 'bright and happy'...it lightened the whole room up like a thousand percent. Oh, and that candle thingie on the wall...found that at goodwill and spray painted that too...lol. Almond. I love spray paint.

My mantel...I braided some raffia and stuck some fake flowers in it and put my candle holders in it. That picture is of a man at the vietnam memorial...I say that about ten years ago and had to have it. My husband bought it for me and had it framed.

Sophie's room...I moved all the furniture around...and that's the vanity that I picked up at Good will and re did. That mirror I found in germany and actually redid for my oldest when she was little. It matched perfectly. I found that chandelier on sale at lowes a few years back and painted the leaves gold.
The curtains I found at the arc store a year or two ago...there were two left panels so I took the ruffle off the left side of the left panel and resewed it to the right side of the left panel...make a nice matched pair.
And that is my Sophie saying bye.
Have a great night guys,
Talk to you tomorrow.
