Hello friends! I have a good food diary for today, though I did go a little crazy on the fruit. Besides eating fruit all day, I managed to do a little around the house, and I gave the dogs a good brushing, and laundered the cover on our couch as it was almost “white” with dog hair. Its not usually that bad, but this time of yeah with both of them shedding like crazy, it was covered in it. It came out of the wash a little furry, but its loads better than it was before it went in. I’m almost be willing to sit on it now.
I added a few things to my shop today, digging through my lingerie drawer and digging out a corset and a brand new garter belt that would fall right off over my hips now. Both can be had for super cheap in my shop. The garter belt has 8 clips, all metal, and it really very nice. I wish I could keep the garter belt, but its beyond me short of completely tearing it apart, re-cutting everything, and at that rate I may as well just make a new one.
I also tried to watch the rest of Game of Thrones today, but I discovered my copy of the next episode in line was in Norwegian or something and no subtitles so that got put on hold until tomorrow. I ended up watching the rest of Grimm instead and Ramona & Beezus. I have watched that movie way to many times and I still love it.
Later in the evening I cut out all the pieces to make a new purse out of the scraps from my latest sewing project which I have yet to finish- waiting on a special zipper. Tomorrow I will stitch it up, as it shouldn’t take more than an hour and then I will list it in my shop too. I may try to make something else out of the remaining scraps if I can, but they might be pared down to almost nothing, which is good- they can go in my next box for Donna. :) Yeah, I’m already working on a next box!
After that, I drove over to The Connoisseur’s and took over some solar lights we were giving her and she gave me the bracelet she made me. I don’t have a photo of the actual bracelet yet, but its this style. I love it, and have been wanting to make one for a while but now I don’t have to. Tomorrow Will is going to bring over their old bed frame and help me assemble it and get our mattress and box spring put on it. Mattie was iffy about me bringing it home, but it really is his style of furnishings, its painted black, and we can stop being ghetto with our box spring sitting on the floor.
As I said, food was good today, and tomorrow morning I will do my weigh in for this week. Its also going to be my weigh and measure for the first of the month because it being Summer there’s too many BBQs, parties, and going out on the weekends to make weighing in on Sunday mornings feel very smart. The scale was at a new low this morning too- 182.9 pounds. I am kind of kicking myself though that if I hadn’t screwed up so bad the last two weeks I would be in the high 170′s by now.
Anyway, here’s today’s food diary.
|Cottage Cheese (1 Cup)||6|
|Coffee w/Milk & Sugar||2|
|Chicken w/Great Value Coating||11|
|Pasta Roni, Garlic & Olive Oil Vermicelli (1 Cup)||9|
Nothing else to share tonight, so setting this to post. I’ll see you tomorrow with my weigh and measure numbers.
