This week’s official weigh and measure was pretty much a flop. I used all my weeklies on Friday & Saturday, so the scale was way up today compared to only a few days ago. Not too pleased with that, but it is what it is. I did it, I get to live with it, right? Still, there was a loss, so its not all bad. I’m pretty sure the scale will be down quite a bit in the morning though, or at least by Tuesday morning.
I had planned on spending some time in my craft room today but I didn’t. The most productive thing I did all day today was brush the dogs, which oddly enough Sashi is the one who is shedding the most. Usually its Lucy who is losing hair all over the place, not Sash.
I also tried to win a pattern I really wanted on eBay, but I got way outbid at the last second. The same pattern is available from the manufacture for $3.99 though right now, so may just order from there, depending on whether or not the site will work- so far I can’t go through the checkout process at all without an error. Grrr. Probably better this way though because I’m technically broke.

Today was a small grocery haul Monday. I stocked our freezer so well last month we really id not need any meat, but I grabbed some chicken thighs because they’re hella cheap, and a package of bratwursts because they taste so good (but insanely unhealthy) squeezed out of their casings, crumbled, and cooked with Zatarain’s dirty rice mix. I got ice cream because I had the extra money this week, and its something we eat more of when the weather is warm. Today, however, was not warm. It was rainy, cold, and windy. I pretty much froze my ass off all day today, though because I was holed up in my craft room all day, I really didn’t notice it. I also didn’t notice today that at 6:45pm, I still had not eaten anything at all, and made an “emergency” run to Subway. I was initially planning on going to Jack in the Box, but all of a sudden I thought of Subway and it won out, no contest.

This wasn’t a great weigh in this morning. I show a loss of 1.4 pounds, but that’s a loss from two weeks ago, not last week. Last week I didn’t weigh in. Still, a loss is a loss so I can’t be too hard on myself. My BMI is slowly working its way down- remember when I was still fighting to get it under 30 so I would no longer be classified as obese by it? I know BMI is not the most accurate way to watch your weight, but for now its a nice rough guideline to go by.
I spent most of my day in my craft room sewing dress #4- the 4th dress I have sewn start to finish in the last 4 days. Seriously. I messaged Tracy and told her I need an intervention. This is kind of ridiculous. Dress #4 is the same bodice as dress #3, which I will show you after the jump, but has a full skirt instead, and the bodice is white and the skirt is black. It wasn’t planned that way. I actually ran out of black broadcloth when I was cutting the bodice and realized I either needed to make the bodice outside a different color, or the lining. I chose the outside. And now I keep wondering how it would look (besides probably fun) to do the same dress again, but with sequined fabric for the bodice and a plain skirt fabric. Maybe a little prom-dressy.
