I’m thrilled to announce that my change in lifestyle (food habits and exercise) has helped me lose 11 pounds so far. My clothes are really loose and I feel better physically already. I have until Christmas to meet my goal of 20 pounds and I was thrilled untilyesterday afternoon. I went to work and kept busy during my eight hours and then decided to go grocery shopping at Wal-Mart and pickup some other items. I’m sure you have seen the horrid pictures some people have posted on Facebook about the people who wear clothes that are way too small and things are showing that shouldn’t be showing. Well folks, I’m here to tell you it’s time to stop posting those pictures. By the end of my day my jeans has become so loose that I thought I was going to drop them at any turn. It’s hard to push a buggy while filling it with groceries and holding up your pants. I left the store without completing my shopping for fear showing my fanny in public!! I ABSOLUTELY DID NOT want to be the next photo you see on FACEBOOK!!! I was trying to hold off on buying new clothes until Christmas but after that ordeal it’s time to go shopping for the next size down in jeans which would be a 14 😉 I’m thrilled with the weight loss and thought washing my existing jeans in really hot water might save me some money and maybe two sizes in jeans. This near tragedy in Wal-Mart is just not worth the embarrassment!! Keep me in your prayers and leave those cameras and phones turned off, PLEASE!!! More updates as I reach my goal!!
Yes it’s almost mid-month but I have some goals to complete before months end. I always have high expectations of what I can complete in a two day weekend and that means I have six days to complete my goals. Here’s the April goals:
1) Clean out the fall/winter debris in the yard
2) Transplant the hibiscus and shasta daisies to another location in the yard
3) Clean all the flower beds and make ready for new additions
4) Make 12 new blocks for the sampler quilt
5) Start spring cleaning the bathroom, pantry and back porch
6) Make new cushions for the lawn and porch furniture
7) Set out 15 of the 30+ apple root stock and nine American chestnuts we started from seed.
8) Finish planting the garden and flower seeds in the greenhouse
9) Spring clean the guest room (decided to start in the least travedled and used room)
10) Clean the paddle boat and put it on the pond
I think this should keep me very busy for the rest of the month. Since turkey season begins Saturday I should be able to start bright and early in the morning.
