Weigh- in Wednesday

185--so I'm down two pounds but I'm not really interested in my weight as much as my size. i haven't measured my waist yet but i suspect its getting smaller. my pants are fitting better.

Alright i have a confession while i did go walking for an hour and 15 minutes yesterday. I had an after dinner snack of chocolate Tufuffi ice cream. By the way seriously worth it.

I know I need more disciplined .

 Next week i will be better with the sweets. Some of the ladies are doing a forty day fast at church of one thing that they want to get rid of. mine is going to be simple sugar.

Thift Store Thursday

Have I ever shared with you my love of thrift store finds? It started when I was about 9 my Mum would take me to a thrift store not to be cheap but because we were broke. And some  people have really nice stuff that they just don't want any more. And lucky us for coming across it. I remember always buying a book or two or three... Why not they were only a quarter. Seriously. Awesome. And thats how my love of reading began.

When I got married. I wanted funiture and what better place to go purchase than at the Goodwill. Everything in my house is secondhand but no one would no the difference because people give away nice trash. Things that need just a little tender loving care.

My second favorite thing to search for are beauty bags. And while I dont wear make up any more I love to scord some discounted bath and body works. I picked up a bag of goodies a few weeks ago Right before Christmas. I paid $3.99.

Last week I went to the thrift store and scored this awesome bag of smell good for $2.99.

Blessed and Highly favored,

Ps. I know today is not Thursday. Its Friday. Remember its the thought that counts.

Weight- in - Wednesday

Today's weigh in was 188 lbs. 2 lbs down thats good! I know I need to step my exerise regiment. i've just been speed walking with Max in the morning while the lioncub sleeps in his stroller. But I like to take baby steps.

The other day I was on facebook and came across this post from a site called The Black Girl's Guide to Weight Loss. The blogger has started a weight loss boot camp that I am pretty excited to start. The first week you're supposed to drink a cup a water ib tge hour every hour while awake. So I will post my results later in the week.

3/52 weeks of happy

This week I started pretty well. I started back  exercising and I felt awesome. So awesome that I ran a little

Later in the week my friends and I walked a small path near our homes. It was very peaceful. God made this beautiful world. Im so thankful that I get to be a part of it to see its beauty.

By far the happiest part of my week happened on Sabbath and of course involved my little lion cub. One of  his adoptive grandmothers at the church bought him this cute blue suit for Christmas. And he looks amazing! Everything I put on him he looks great in.  He's a good looking kid.
