Let me say that Day 7 was the best of the best so far this month. It was AWESOME, as I reached my first weight loss goal of 32 pounds on that day. Quite unexpectedly, but it was welcome. I have some wonderful, wonderful friends on the Loseit site, we had quite the celebration!
The next great thing was the shopping trip I went on and was pleasantly surprised to find that I am down not 2, but 3 clothing sizes in some things!! I have not worn a size 12, ever, I think.
I have been working at this first goal since December. I had the Loseit app for my iPhone for over a year. It works great and all, but I discovered I needed a little more and knew that this app had launched a website. So I went there, visited, joined and that made all the difference in the world. The support you get from your friends is phenomenal. Now on to the next goal!
Day 7 was awesome!!
Day 8 was terrific, too, but differently.
My nice thing for myself was visiting some friends and working on my metal hand sculpture. I have been feeling slightly friend deprived (in my Wisconsin-life) and I needed to touch base with people. Went to visit my dear friend Luann and then hung out with another dear friend Cat. So wonderful to reconnect. In between was a lovely lunch with the Mad- Accountant.... way better than cooking!
Speaking of reconnecting, my lovely pal Annette and I are making bad girl plans!! hehehe, I'll get back to you on this one!
Day 9 involved photos again!! w00t!! I am having a good time with them, and I had help making the decision on which photo processing program to buy. Whew, it was an agonizing decision, but I'm going to buy and install it - maybe tomorrow!! Yay. Now I just have to decide on which HRM I am going to get and it will be all good.
I got a lot of gardening done today and made some wonderful, fresh meals.
Ordinarily during this time of the year I would be making cold salads for lunches and suppers- involving things like pasta, potatoes and mayo- but since I know that there are better choices to be made, I have changed my menu.
Today, I bought some more fresh fruit and made up a lovely mixed fruit bowl. It was so pretty I decided to photograph it! I also delved into the garden and found enough goodies out there to make an awesome salad for supper. Paired with some grilled portobellos and a spicy black bean burger for me and a regular burger for the Mad Accountant, and you have a great healthy supper. All I added to the salad that wasn't from the garden were the cherry tomatoes. Still waiting for those to arrive!
This is sooo good- melon, strawberries, grapes, sweet cherries, nectarines and a little fresh grown spearmint.
Found in the garden: oak leaf lettuce, pea pods, mini Chiogga beets, kale, dill, basil and I added some cherry tomatoes later. I used balsamic vinegar as a dressing.
And then we went and had ice cream at the Ice Cream place in Butternut! Lol! And I have some room to spare yet.
Until next time, find your joy in every day things! And don't forget to count your blessings.
