Maritimer 3

April 7, 2014.

5 weeks until the wedding.

The last 2 months have been rough, and I regained 5 of the 11 lbs. I lost since Christmas. I am definitely still an emotional eater, and when I get stressed and over-tired, I over-eat. That's the bad news. The good news is that I didn't quit.

So with 5 weeks to go, and first dress fitting today, this is the plan:

5 weeks until the wedding.

The last 2 months have been rough, and I regained 5 of the 11 lbs. I lost since Christmas. I am definitely still an emotional eater, and when I get stressed and over-tired, I over-eat. That's the bad news. The good news is that I didn't quit.

- eat at the bottom of my SP range
- keep protein, fats and carbs in balance as per SP
- minimum of 8 glasses of water daily... may include clear tea

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.

*Good idea with the mirrored doors so you can check your form*
We needed storage space badly and it seemed an ideal solution to make the room look bigger too.


A bit scary when you go in there first thing in the morning and see the crumpled old body staring back at you though emoticon emoticon emoticon

snagging? finishing off a room and making sure there is nothing outstanding- usually a term used when you get professionals in and they've left things undone or not to your satisfaction,
I Love that room Gail, the light lilac is so restful and I can see birds coming down to eat while I workout. Had a great workout this morning almost 60 mins of weights and sweat! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have had a long term project of turning the space to the side of my sun room and deck into a garden. It is approximately 25x30 feet. I then have foundation planting on the sides and front of my house. My house is very deep because we added a master suite to the back of the house for my parents when they moved in with us. So that side of the house is about 60 by 5 feet. I also have about 30 feet along a fence line and a large circle under my cherry tree. Eventually I will also plant across the back of the house which is not already planted. The goal is to make it as easy as possible for DH to mow the lawn because he does not like to do trim work and I can't stand how ragged it looks when the grass is tall along the foundation of the house. I only have about 20 feet of foundation to go emoticon
