Beth--Thanks for stopping by, and the food suggestion. I will have to stock up and try out some recipes. The support is really appreciated. It keeps my accountable and is a nice pick me up.
Yay! My weight went back down that pound! And I measured around my middle, I have lost almost an inch around my natural waist!
Today is shaping up to be a pretty awesome day. Our truck has been in the shop since October. That means hubby has had my car all winter, and I have walked every where, or when it was too cold to walk with children, called around and begged for a ride. But, the shop just received the last of the parts needed to rebuild the engine and we should have it back around the 9th of April! It has been a very long winter without transportation seeing as we have had the 4th snowiest season on record this year.
The girls and I would look out at the foot plus of snow, negative wind chill factor, and settle for a game of hide and seek or a puzzle. My DH had quite a few can you pick up such and such on your way home calls.
Also, we purchased a house that was built in the 1860's a while back. We have to finish the demolition-plaster and lathe- I will put in the last three windows, and hubby will finish the new drywall installation. We are looking at being able to tape, plaster, sand, and be ready to paint all of the bedrooms by May. We thought it would take longer, but several people that work with DH found what we are trying to do and volunteered to take a weekend here in a couple of weeks, after we finish the demo and windows, and help to put up all of the ceilings, and as many walls as they can all get done over the course of two days!
I cannot describe how grateful I am for their kindness and generosity. It has been slow going for us on that front. Due to a massive shoulder injury, I cannot lift a piece of dry wall over my head more than a couple times before it gives out on me. So DH has done most all of the dry-walling himself on his days off. It's funny. I can install windows, siding, guttering, flooring, do the sanding, refinishing, painting, trim work. What I struggle with is the demo, drywall, taping, plastering, and boarding up old windows that we do not care to keep. Reverse that and you have DH strengths and weaknesses. Talk about a match made in Heaven!
I did not quite stick to my food plan yesterday. Regular dinner wasn't appealing, tried out the Belgium waffles-fantastic. I didn't even have a topping for it and it did not matter. Finished it up with a glass of tomato juice which still finished out my veggies okay. Exercise yesterday, did everything but the bike ride. The stock seat that came with it is down right painful. I need to find one that is more narrow, it is a Schwinn Link, so it came with a wide cruising style saddle. I find that I miss the mountain bike style saddle. Oh well, maybe next paycheck
B: Scrambled eggs with peppers, FF ham, little bit of cheese, tea
L: Chef's salad
S: Flax seed muffin
D: Maybe the grilled pork and stir vegs will sound good tonight
