I don't even care!

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I bought a new pair of shoes for Easter that are not really ideal for the dress I have but frankly, I don't care! They are sassy and hot! Well, as hot as I can get! I don't have feet. I have more like what you would call hooves! They are short short short! Yet wide as a linebackers foot. Let's just say, my mom always says just throw the shoes aside and wear the box Kim! Sad. But true! So on the rare occasion I find a shoe that fits me that doesn't have Big Bird on the side of it, I jump on it! The pick I have of them are pre-pedi. Which is coming TOMORROW!! I can't wait! But here they are! woo hoo! Now, here they are on my foot! I don't plan on wearing my fitbit on my ankle at Easter though! HA!HA!
I will try to get a better picture with the pedi!! Daughter and I are going tomorrow as soon as she gets out of school and before her soccer practice! I hope she covers those toes up good before she goes kicking that ball!
Have a Thriving Thursday all!


Easter Shopping........

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Hubs and I went looking for some new slacks for him to wear for Easter. I gave up trying to dress him early on in the marriage. I have VERY few talents but one thing I am very very good at is dressing a man! I can make a hobo look like the cover of a GQ magazine. Hubs has way too many, I will say "issues" to let me try to dress him up all sharp so I have decided to pick my battles and let him do what he will. Meanwhile, I decide to check out the sales in dresses. I take 2 to the dressing room. 2 strikes. Back to the drawing board, next I grabbed 3. 3 strikes. Desperation is beginning to set in.......finally I find what I am looking for!!! My best friend!! There is was! Good old Clearance rack! woo hoo!! I grab 3 more off the rack, left me with one possible and another probably. I did not come prepared to try them on so I knew I needed to get them home and put them on with the right stuff and see what will work for me. So.......I bought them both. Here they are and the other one More than likely it will be the darker on. The red one was a tad bit too snug for me in the tummy still but I would say 10 pounds from now it is good to go and I can always wear it to church. Because 19.99, I am more than likely going to keep it!
Hope your week is going great!

    Love the black one. We used to shop for new Easter dresses each year when I was a child. I miss that

    Very pretty! I usually go with skirts and tops rather than dresses; it just works better for my shape. Yes, we need pics of you in your new dresses!

    Nice dresses there. It's so much fun dressing a man, especially when it's your own and he let's you.

    Great finds! I'd keep both of them at that price too. I feel like I will probably look like spring time, wearing a dress I bought last year but never wore. it's long, yellow with a lot of little flowers on it, very lacy. Very feminine. eva

my 600 pound life

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I never watch tv and tonight I caught this show on. Wow. I found myself really rooting for them, seeing where their challenges are, seeing their denial, it was hard to watch but great to see that they got fed up enough to make a difference!
I was very surprised because no where did I see that they "tracked" their food. I personally feel it is vital. We really lose touch when we think we are not eating THAT much yet it ends up being 3000+ calories a day for some of them. wow!

Well, have a terrific Tuesday all!

    I've seen that show it can be very eye opening.

  My visual measurements of portion size are generally way over what is appropriate, so weigh, measure, portion control for me too, and tracking it all.

    I watch that show all the time; I feel so bad for them but most of them in the end do quite well. Tracking is truly the key to continued success on this journey.

    I watch that show too and it is very encouraging for me to know that if they can do it, then I can do it!! I tend to root for them as well!! I wish they would do a follow up show so we can see what they look like now.

    yep! tracking has changed my life. I have never been able to keep weight off before. The missing link was the tracking.

    I believe that it (tracking) is an eye-opener for us. I know, I was shocked to see what I was eating. It keeps you accountable. A vital tool for everyone trying to lose and maintain their healthy weight. I hope you have a fantastic day. God bless. Judy emoticon

    You know I don't track anymore, BUT I did learn some very HUGE things like I was putting a 1/2 CUP of creamer in my coffee...NOT 2 Tbls!!! I had no idea how bad I 'eye' measured stuff!!!

  Some of those show have pre structured meal plans. Tracking is such a valuable tool. Being aware helps a lot.

We had storms early on this morning, and it's raining again now, but nothing serious this time. Early this morning, though, it was heavy rain, lightening/thunder, wind and hail. UGh

steppin it up

Saturday, April 12, 2014

yesterday set a new record for me! 28484 steps. I was movin'and groovin' Today I am past 15,000 but dont see me breaking my new record again any time soon.
Did some shopping. Went to Arby's for lunch. Had the plain turkey sandwich and no cheese and a side salad! Really proud of that!
I am really incorporating this into my everyday life and that feels great!

Have a great weekend all!
