Week 24

Birthday parties, field day, wedding shower up in Maine... These are just a few of the great things that happened last week.  Some I was able to attend, some I wasn't.  I am unfortunately, sick again! (Seriously, I feel like throwing a little fit for myself! I have NO time to be sick!!)  My boys brought strep back into the house and of course, mom's got it!  I'm a little nervous that it is going to take the same path it did in March when strep turned into bronchitis bordering on pneumonia.  Please pray for good health!!!

Despite all of the festivities and illness, I still did great this week!!!  I kept away from the birthday cake.  I feasted on fruit salad at the shower and on my trip up to Maine I had egg beaters and whole wheat toast at the diner. (Super cute diner done in 50's retro complete with oldies music. So fun!)  But I also indulged a bit too.  The favors at the shower were Oreos covered in white chocolate!  Since it was a 'favor' for my niece, I felt compelled to eat one... or two.. : )  I mean after all, how could I refuse the bride a 'favor'? ; )  It was super yummy! 

I got on the scale this morning hoping to meet the goal I had set for myself last week but knowing that I'd be good with anythiing that wasn't a gain.  To my delight, I met my goal!!  Down 2 pounds for a total weight loss of 37 pounds!!  I think I should have pulled the scale back out again to see if I had lost another pound after the workout I got cleaning up the 100 rolls of toilet paper that came out at me like an avalanche when I opened the closet.  It's nice to know we wont have to worry about 'sparing a square', but really dear, that pack of toilet paper is monsterous!!

The week ahead is CRAZY busy!!! It's the last week of school and the last week of the Preschool Enrichment program I do in my home daycare (only open during school season, do some part time in the summer).  I have teacher's gifts to get, gifts for my Joyful Moments kids (my child care), projects for them to wrap up... Plus, Saturday is my youngest son's graduation from Preschool followed by my older son's birthday party (the one with his friends - family party is the following week).  And let's not forget that next Sunday is Father's Day.  Plus I'm facing a mountain of house work after being sick over the weekend.  Still feel terrible, but you gotta do what you gotta do!

My goals for this week are to simply keep the program rolling.  Too much going on to try to push myself.  By the way, exercise was doing great until I got sick.  I'm sure all we be well as soon as I'm healthy again.

By the way, my cc gave me an assigment to write my lifes mission statement.  Oh well, if that's all! lol!  I'll use my mission written in the right column of this blog as my jumping off point.  Have you ever done that?

Well my mission for today is to try to start tackling all of the house work and projects that need to be done while still getting a little rest time in.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and make great choices!

It's time for me to reheat my tea... again.


  1. Congrats on you 2 pound loss! That is great!!
    I have some things in common with you this week: It's also the last days of school for my kids and I have my daughters 16 year birthday this week, and Fathers day coming up. Funny you should mention Oreo balls covered in white chocolate... because I just made some with my daughter last night, for her to share this week with friends at school. I did NOT even try one (I ate one of my medifast Peanut butter Ball meals after instead).

    Best of luck on your busy week, girl, and I will send GOOD THOUGHTS and PRAYER that you will get over your sickness quickly!! You've got too much to do to worry about that!!

    Best Wishes,
