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.

Last week’s Ten Things Tuesday went really, really well! I not only met 8 out of my 10 goals, I came really close to meeting one of the others, and I exceeded some of the ones I did meet.
I was honestly surprised to see I made it through my #5 goal because late last week I went into a manic episode, and I have serious problems in those phases with spending money. I did spend some money, but it wasn’t on my BillMeLater account, and it was money I actually had, so that’s okay. I also didn’t go overboard on my spending, so even though I splurged a bit, I feel good about it.
The two goals I didn’t complete I still made an effort and was actually pretty close on one of them. Here’s the breakdown of what I accomplished.

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.

I still feel pretty crappy today, but you’ll get a real post and not just my food diary. I’m tired, my head feels like its packed full of cotton batting, and my nose won’t stop running. The last thing I wanted to do today is anything at all, but I still managed to do a load of laundry, vacuum the house, make dinner, and make tea for Mattie. I also did my measurements and weight for this month, and I have a 4.2 pound loss for last month, and 2.5″ added up from here and there. I was really hoping to lose 5 pounds, but the last week was just bad. The scale was all over the place, despite eating decently.
I also finally talked to the woman in charge of our delivery route for AHO, and found out what happened and why we didn’t get our delivery. Basically, she took one half of this area, and the new guy they just hired took the other half- my half. It was still fuzzy what had happened this morning, but this afternoon she called me back and was able to explain everything. Apparently the new kid delivered our box to my mom’s house (my billing address) 30 minutes outside of town, so my mom got a box of veggies, and my raisins, all tucked neatly away in the ice chest outside her back door. When she called him to ask what happened, he asked her why they were delivering to a house so far out there, and that it took an hour to make that one delivery. That pretty much explained everything. I asked my mom to bring me my raisins tomorrow and she can keep whatever else. Part of me is laughing about this and part of me is wondering how the kid managed to not notice not going out there last week on his ride along. Doh! I do feel bad they are having to eat the cost, but it was a mistake on their part, not mine.
