Tuesday’s Treats — What treats??

Tuesday’s Treats — What treats??

  Happy Halloween All!   Though today is technically my “treat day” — I donated my day to make hundreds of Preschoolers’ day better!   So I’ll keep my post short and sweet!       How did your day go? Did you dress up for Halloween? What is your favorite way to treat yourself on a busy work day?

Mondays, am I right?

Mondays, am I right?

Warm milk? It’s finally cooling down here in NC!  YAY! This morning was a chilly 35 degrees — and I WAS LOVING the snuggles!  I didn’t want to get up and get going, but I did because I knew I could rock some of my fall boots and scarves!   Somehow, I got it together and was headed out the door with my packed lunch and travel mug full of fresh hot coffee.  It wasn’t until I was well on…

Just for Fun Friday — REDO!

Just for Fun Friday — REDO!

This weekend is our attempt at a “redo” from last weekend’s “nothing going to plan” situation.   First up — Gym My plan here is to really get a great workout in.  This week did not go as planned (normal MWF schedule) as Wednesday I was totally pooped and so I missed my workout!  I think it’s because I ran Tuesday a bit longer than I planned and then stayed up late for fun times with friends.   Here’s my…

Thursday things

Thursday things

My life is still a series of lists… Behold my housework master list (rough draft).  Isn’t it gorgeous!??     The FlyLady is all about building routines, so I’ve also downloaded her free app to my phone and have set up morning and afternoon routines as well as a before bed routine.  I’m piloting them this week — then I’ll reflect/tweak and try again next week.     So far, I’ve had a clean sink EVERY NIGHT since mid last…

Weigh ins moved to Saturday!

Weigh ins moved to Saturday!

Happy Weigh in Wednesday all!   In keeping with full transparency, I have to admit that my weigh in this week took plan on Saturday — so hubby and I could weigh in together.  We weigh in before hitting the gym, before breakfast, and before the day really begins.  We’re going to keep this as our weekly weigh in day for the foreseeable future — but I’ll report on Wednesdays like usual. Weigh in this week This week My average…

Tuesday’s Treats

Tuesday’s Treats

Yesterday was a bad mood day.  For whatever reason, probably because I’m a week away from my period or because I was tired and run down for a Monday, I was just a crabby and mean lady! As I was doing normal chores — as I’m trying to keep a clean house — I grew resentful at the person who made the mess (poor sweet hubby).  He doesn’t really know when to pick up after himself — he’s swears he…

Why do things never go as planned?

Why do things never go as planned?

No brunch Our favorite brunch place was closed for renovations!?!?   How could this be?  We checked their website and social media accounts THAT MORNING as well as the night before and there was NO indication that any closing of any kind would be experienced.   Instead we tried a new place — and it was overpriced and not very good.  Later in the day I experienced some tummy troubles that could only be caused by that meal 🙁  …

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for fun this weekend — we’re balancing all the work we have to do with my three favorite things. Brunch I love breakfast foods! Hubby loves sleeping in on the weekend!   What better way to merge these to loves than with a Saturday morning brunch!  We’ve decided to go to one of our favorite brunch stops in the next town over — where their specialty is all things crepes. They have sweet crepes and savory crepes and the…

Thursday Things — I forgot to take pictures

Thursday Things — I forgot to take pictures

I forgot to take pictures! I can’t believe it!  Hubby and I completed the pumpkin carving challenge, but I don’t have any pictures!  We carved at a friend’s house and left them on their porch for decorations, so we have nothing to show for all our hard work. 🙁 It was super fun though — I carved up my side of the pumpkin in 3 minutes while hubby took hours and hours.  His side is way more detailed and perfect…

Weigh in Wednesday – 10/18/17

Weigh in Wednesday – 10/18/17

Weigh in time!   I only have a quick sec to update — because this week (like all of October) is crazy cakes…. but here I go:   My 10-day-best was 189.4 but my overall moving aver is 190.5, down from 192.3! As you can see by my individual weight in, I was actually lightest last Thursday — weird!       How was your weigh in this week?
