I spent a lot of time today playing with beads, but I also managed to vacuum the house and get some of the dog hair off of the couch, and gave Lucy a good brushing. We decided to go out to Arby’s for dinner, which is a fairly friendly choice for me, and I did alright, even with the fries I stole from Mattie. Calories were pretty much spot on but fat was way high, no help there from the fries. At least some of my numbers managed to line up today. :-/
Exercise was there, but barely. I did just over 7 minutes of jogging with the Wii this evening and was sweating like crazy even though I was inside with the air going all day and night. It was over 100 degrees today, and even at almost midnight, its nearly 80 degrees still. Yuck! Tomorrow I start taking care of The Connoisseur’s critters. She said she wrote me a novel on what needs to be done… lol.
I finished the tropical fish earrings I started last night this afternoon, and did a pair of ducks this evening. The ducks are unmistakably ducks, though I’m still not sure about the tropical fish.

I am now officially 30 pounds down & working towards my next goal, which is to lose 6 points off of my BMI! I reset my ticker to reflect that, and it looks like the only goal I won’t make this month is the lose 8″ total off of my waist one. I can live with that.
I did some more beading today and I also vacuumed the house. It’d been about 10 days since I did last time, and thanks to Lucy’s heavy shedding, I had to empty the canister twice and probably could have gone over everything again and emptied it a third time. Then I set up all of my transfers for the month for money. Did I put away the huge pile of laundry I did the other day? No, not yet. Tomorrow!
I also spent some time working on my beading. I worked out the cow pattern I created and it turned out really cute. I also did one half of a pair of tropical fish which turned out really well but was incredibly time consuming to make because of the complexity of the patterns and colors. I’m taking a break from that and will make its mate tomorrow afternoon. I’ll hopefully be able to get a good photo of the tropical fish earrings as well when I finish them as they are going to be really, really pretty.

Food was good today, though to be honest I barely ate until dinner time. Mostly I just drank a lot of coffee. Mmm! Coffee! I had an appointment with my mental health doctor which went fine, and then went home to cook dinner. I was supposed to stop by Alix’s after the appointment but before dinner but she wasn’t home during that time frame so will try again tomorrow.
I still haven’t made it back to the gym since the other week, but I am pretty sure I will make my 30 pounds goal tomorrow morning. I’ve been really in the mood for salads lately, so might have yet another one for dinner tomorrow. I’ve got tons of lettuce plus two cucumbers, and we’ve got plenty of chicken, some mozzarella cheese, and Caesar dressing. Yum! We’ll see what I feel like tomorrow. :)
I also spent some time this evening working up some new patterns for earrings- I did a cow, a pig, and 2 fish. The cow I worked up and it turned out pretty well. The pig still needs work, and I won’t really know about the fish until I have a chance to try them out.
