This whole week has been dedicated to being home for the builders/flooring chaps... so it's about time I went out and had some retail therapy I reckon!
I want to find a big serving spoon for the kitchen, I've not got one that you can 'ladle' out a decent amount in one go. Last night I made Butter Chicken for the family and used a cup. Not ideal.
I'm also thinking of getting some 'Shower Witch' stuff:
Has anyone else used this stuff? It's not exactly cheap, so I wouldn't mind knowing if anyone else has used it, and if it was any good???
Of course, while I'm over that way I might just have to pop into the mall and see if anything else catches me eye!
I'm sure Bex, Dante, Lacy, Keera and I can kill an hour or two shopping.
Getting excited!!! ONE more sleep until I step on the scales. I alternate between feeling excited that I will have a decent loss, and being shit scared I will be really disappointed. God I hope I'm not disappointed.
Right, I better bugger off and make the lunches...
ABOVE: Well, I tried something different in the dining/family room. Can you see what it is?
Remember last week, when Bex scared the shit outta me when I was backing out of Lacy's drive?
Well I finally did the 'PAYBACK'...
ABOVE: well ... it would appear 'someone' has gone and stitched several pairs of shorts/jeans closed across the legs!
ABOVE: and that particular 'someone' kindly have her a quick unpick too. I'm nice like that.
ha ha ha!
SUCCESS... got a new ladle, the Shower Witch, and two new shifts and a black blue lightweight cardigan for autumn/winter. I am SET with clothes now for the next 6 months or so. Really happy.
AND I have NO intention of buying any more clothes for me until next summer.
Lunch with the girls... we all had sushi. I tried the seaweed salad... interesting flavour... but I didn't like it enough to buy it again.
What was different in the room? You sussed it out. The table is where the couch was, and now we have a rug for kids to play on. AND now when the kids/Steve are playing on the X-Box they are closer to the TV and no one has to walk in front of them.
I had planned on givng the new floor a wash this afternoon, but I've run outta energy. It can wait till tomorrow.
Dinner tonight is takeaways. We are having burgers and chips. It is the ONLY evil meal I shall have this week. Tomorrow.... the scales will tell me if I've been good enough these past 30 days ... OR... they will tell me I need to do a bit better.
While I'm not going to focus too much on the numbers, I know that in my heart I am hoping for a decent loss.
When you have been 'conditioned' to expect a certain amount lost each week, it is hard to fight that expectation.
But, I think I will be OK, as long as my resolve is rock solid, I will be just fine. And it is. I am hell-fire, bent and determined to get the weight off and lead a healthier life.
End of Day: a lovely day, and hopefully tomorrow will be too !
