It’s been quite a busy past couple of months. Buttoning up the finish of school, graduation for Seth, house guests, yard work, and lots of meetings and events. Things are finally starting to settle down a bit so I can focus more on this blog.
I hosted Seth’s graduation open house at my place, and I scrambled around trying to think of fun and crafty things. Here is the luscious cake:
And the ice cream sundae bar:
One little crafty idea I had (which I wish I would have thought of for my graduation!!) was to have everyone who attended Seth’s graduation party sign his grad cap. I set out sharpies in a glass cup so people would be encouraged to sign.
Luna has been doing well! I need to take her in for a check up soon here just to be sure all it still well inside her little body. She has adjusted though. She’s also a big chicken. You should see her when we turn on the attic fan. Chicken!
Towards the end of the school year, I had been feeling really sluggish and uncomfortable with myself. I think that’s just the worst un-sexy feeling ever! I know that it’s from not eating right and lack of activity. So as the school year came to finalization, I had made a goal to start walking and adding in more activity to my days since I wouldn’t be working. I’m happy to report that I have stuck to that goal so far, and I notice that I do feel better! I also know that I can’t sleep in! If I do, I get that sluggish tired feeling. So I get up before Jeremy leaves for work, get him all set to go, and then right when he leaves I change and head out to walk. I realize that I like to walk in the low 70’s, so it fits perfectly to do the deed early on when it’s cooler.
I have read several blogs that post a weigh in day. I’m not comfortable posting my weight yet….but I do want to weigh in every Thursday from now on. I’ll report whether I’ve lost or gained. I’m believing that my posting it on here will give me some accountability to really stick to it! My goal is to loose 50 pounds. After I conquer that, I’ll make a new goal. But for now….it’s 50.
It used to annoy the crap out of me on Pinterest when people would post sayings that had to do with fitness….well now I’m hooked on the encouragement! Here are a couple of ones I like:
And of course:
