Well, for the first time in 104 days I completely skipped blogging two days in a row. Everytime I think I’m going to have some free time
I decide to fill it with stuff something comes up.
Even with the homework, I really have no complaints. Except the homework…
Friday I spent most of the day working on homework, cleaning the house, and doing our laundry. I hit the hay pretty early Friday night because I had an early morning appointment at the salon and then a purse party at my friend Ashley’s house.
Saturday was fantastic! The first three hours of my day were spent at the salon getting a cut, color, and style. The transformation continues…I went red…really, really red. And I love it! My stylist says I was born to be a red head, and I must say that I agree with her. I got a ton of compliments at the party and later at our friend’s house. Of course, I’ll never be able to get it to look like it did yesterday, but I can live with that.
Ashley’s party was a lot of fun. I got to see some friends that I hadn’t seen in quite some time. I always love going to her house. There’s something about Bardstown that reminds me of my hometown. However, I still feel like it’s a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there (sorry Mom!) I did really well and stayed on budget. Before it’s over with, I’m going to have to have to room just for my bags…
My favorite purchase was a knapsack that I got for the gym. I had “Never Give Up” embroidered on it (I didn’t have enough letters to do my first choice – “Don’t Stop Believin'”). The bag that I’ve been carrying just isn’t deep enough to carry my clothes, wallet, and iPad.
The best part of the day (outside of getting to see my buddies) is that I was able to ignore the cake, chips, punch, and Halloween candy. Ashley has a six year old who got AN ENTIRE TOTE BAG FULL OF CANDY! I had one snack size bag of skittles, one helping of chips (11) and a 4″ Subway sandwich. After the party, we went to Cracker Barrell and I had my usual grilled chicken tenderloin meal with veggies. I couldn’t take it this morning and decided to weigh just to see if my willpower had paid off, and it had! I’m down almost 2 pounds so far and our weigh in isn’t until Tuesday. The loss motivated me to work out today
and then I subsequently ate all of my exercise calories…
Back to the routine tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it (most of it anyway). I can’t say I’m looking forward to going back to work, but who does?
I’m planning on making veggie soup tomorrow night and I can’t wait! Low in calories – big on taste. (Yes, I’m fully aware that I sound like a marketing firm – but I really do feel that way).
