So as of today I am at the 5 pound loss mark!
It's been a good two weeks though......Commander FINALLY put steps into motion for me to FINALLY move up to Wisconsin. I have one set of movers coming on Thursday to pack up a few basics to tide me over for the summer......and then next month....another set of movers will be packing up all the rest and keeping it in storage for us, until the WI House is ready for a total move in. So far he has put in the new plumbing for the new master bathroom. And....supposedly he has started putting up some walls upstairs....I should get there just in time to help put up more walls and paint! ( I was kinda hoping I'd get to avoid all that.....but then again.....It'll be nice to be there so I can pick the colors myself..LOL)
and .......the BEST news of the Week????
WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the Buyers LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the house....offered us FULL asking price( which had been reduced quite a bit recently) aren't asking for anything else...and will pay their own closing!! They want to close on the 7th of July! Our Realtor says this is the 'cleanest' contract he's ever seen. We just have to pass the house inspection.....and hope their financing comes thru without a hitch!

And a Margarita of course!!
I never did get around to formally exercising today...I did Dance around the living room to 70's music for about a 1 /2 hour.
Also tonight I snacked on a White Macadamia Nut cookie and a small glass of Milk.

I didn't get home until a little before 2:00 so I made myself a quick Wrap with Ham, Provolone, Lettuce. Tomato and Marinated Artichokes...I used some Spinach and Artichoke Cheese Spread that I had in the fridge as a spread. And I had a handful of Grapes and Water...I also bought the Entemanns's Cheese Pastry...I LOVE this stuff and can't find it often, so when I do see it I buy it. It's not the best thing to snack on....but it's one of my favorite things...as long as I'm eating well the rest of the day I think it's ok to have a treat here and there.8:35
I had Choir Practice this evening so I didn't get home until nearly 8:00. I thought about picking up some fast food on my way home but decided against it. I had one of the Soups I bought earlier today and some Pita Crisps with Hummus. VERY good.
And.....treated myself to a couple Cheater Margaritas.....LOL
What I Wore Today:
Floral Skirt-NY and Co. ( bought this YEARS ago)
Leather Thongs-Earth Shoes-Walmart

Decided to try one of the workouts on Excercise TV(0m Demand) . I chose Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred! Whew! Nearly killed myself...LOL! But I got thru it! I had to take a few breathers here and there, but got right back into it as quickly as possible. I definitely feel like I had a good workout...
12:50:Lunch was another Mini Bagel with Ham and Cheese( no Cream Cheese this time and Swiss instead of Colby), two Campari Tomatoes, and a small bowl of Terra Organic Vegetable Chips. And water of course. I try to drink water thruout the day.
Tonight I had plans to attend a Pampered Chef Party where I knew there'd be some good food served....I planned on that being my dinner.....but I was hungry around 5:00ish....so I had a small snack.....one Nature Valley Cashew Bar and a few pieces of Dove Covered Almonds. I've had this bag since March and just eat a few pieces here and there....
We did have a nice meal at the PC Party.....some kind of Chicken Enchilada Casserole..I had a small serving and 3 tortilla chips with Salsa Dip...the hostess also made some desserts..I had a small piece of Sopapilla, and one cookie.
What I Wore Today for Cinco de Mayo
Top- bought at Target last year
Cargos- Walmart about 3 years ago...I've hardly worn them and I'm not sure why....they fit great and looked so cute!! Need to wear them more often.....
and.....aren't these shoes just to DIE for!!
Bought them last summer from Delias Online.
They are my All-Time Favorites!

Totally missed the 8:30 episode of Namaste Yoga....also missed the 12:30 episode as well...totally forgot about it. I did take a walk around the neighborhood though....
On a good note I weighed in today and had a loss of 3 pounds! Yay....I haven't even been trying THAT hard. Just trying to eat better....and move around more....
This morning I had Breakfast at about 10:00am:
A Small container of Dannon Lite Blueberry yogurt mixed with some Udi's Hawaiian Granola Mix....this was REALLY good....and a cup of Mixed Berry Green Tea.
After Breakfast I went out for my walk.....Ran into one of the neighbors so I stopped to chat for about ten minutes then finished the rest of my walk...that is one thing about walking out here....you're bound to run into someone who wants to stop and chat for a while...LOL
Had some water after my walk....
I really wanted a sandwich but had to throw what was left of the bread away today , as it had started to get moldy. So I had to improvise...I'm trying hard to eat what I have on hand and not buy too much( although I do need to get a few things at the grocery in the next day or so)...
Campari Tomatoes, a few slices of Honey Ham( Swine Flu be damned...LOL) , a few slices Havarti Dill Cheese, and some Sour Cream and Onion Crackers..it was all quite Satifying.....of course I had water with my meal.
3:05pm: Afternoon Snack....6:00pm Dinner-Baked Chicken with a Raspberry Chipolte Sauce, Roasted Potatos w/Parmesean Rosemary seasoning, and Beans & Carrots. I also treated myself to a Cheater Margarita. 9:30: Had some Starbucks Java Chip Frappacino for a treat. I chose a really small bowl to control the portion. I would have been satisfied with an even smaller portion though.
That's one thing I really need to work on. Realizing I don't need SO much of everything. I'm the one who shops and cooks for this family so it's not like I can't have 'more" at another time or even sometimes 'more' at the moment. I should start out with smaller portions and then, if I find I want more I can always have a little more.
Outfit of the Day:
Knit Dress -Bought last summer at jCrew.com
Leather Thongs-Bought last year at Walmart( they are the Earth Shoe brand)very comfy.
Took her back up to Harrisonburg after Mass yesterday. It was so nice to have her at church this week singing with the Choir. After Mass we spent a couple of hours visiting with friends before taking off for Harrisonburg....Not to worry, she'll be back next week . Yay!
What I Wore to Church Sunday
