Weekly Weigh In

Friday, April 22, 2011

There is no doubt about it breastfeeding is the best way to lose weight!  Yes, I've been doing WW for the past 10 weeks, but I haven't been hitting it hardcore.  Like I've said in earlier posts, traveling makes it so hard to stay on track, so Emma has been my key to success!  This week I lost another 1.4lbs and I'm down a total of 13.4!  I can't believe it...I'm into my skinny pre-pregnancy jeans & I'm 7lbs. below my pre-pregnancy weight!  I'm feeling great-now to get my sweet daughter to sleep through the night & I might have energy to workout.

Thanks so everyone for your support!

Kitchen Remodel

Thursday, April 14, 2011

After being in our house for 2 years, the Mr. and I have decided to update our kitchen.  We aren't doing a ton, but what we are going to do is going to make a huge difference.  
-New backsplash
-Recess lighting
-Farmhouse Sink
-Knocking out some cabinets
-New cabinet hardware

Oh, I can't wait!  Yesterday the electricians were here and they installed a new light in the hall, new outlets in the garage & added our recess lighting!  Oh what a difference it has already made.  

Before recess (note: these pictures were taken before we moved in, this is not our decor.)

After pot rack is down & recess up

Doesn't it look bigger already?!?!  I'm so excited to get the rest of it done.  The Mr. and I will spend next weekend cleaning out the kitchen cabinets & get ready for the renovation.  WOOOHOO! More before and after pics to come! 

What a Week!

Thursday, April 7, 2011

Life has been pretty hectic and crazy busy these past few weeks.  Last week I went back home to visit my family and also do some shopping at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX.  It was a beautiful weekend and I got so much stuff at Canton-an antique trunk for Em's toys, a chicken coop to hang outside and put flowers in, my paw paw made me a hutch for the backyard to put potted plants on...now I just need to get some of it sanded and painted and buy some more plants.  I'll post pics as soon as it's done.

We had a wonderful time hanging out with the family.  They can't get enough of sweet Emma.  Dad took her on her first 4-wheeler ride and she was in love.  My mom cooked a huge dinner for all of us one night and it was fabulous.  My WW went out the window last week-corny dogs at Canton, Momma's cooking, Crandall Mexi, and a Paula Deen dessert that was out of this world.  So today at weigh in I was scared to death.  I knew I had gained, but I didn't, in fact, I lost.....4 lbs!!!! I've hit my 5% goal and down a total of 9.8 lbs! I couldn't believe it and I think I'm still in shock!!! Guess I'll keep doing what I have been doing, minus the junk food, and pray that I continue to lose.  I'm now working on my 10% goal, which is 9 more lbs.

This weekend I'm having my launch trunk show for my new Stella & Dot business.  I hope it goes well and I have a decent turn out, but I have a feeling that I'm not.  Everyone has busy Saturdays and I've only gotten 6 RSVP's that are coming.  Say a prayer that it goes well for me.

I hope you have had a great week!  What are your plans this weekend?
