FOR TODAY… from Stacey’s Daybook
Outside my window… ~72 degrees and cooler at last. We’ve had a hot, humid July and early August and I am ready for fall!
I am thinking… ~that summer is winding down. School supplies are in the stores, school clothes sales are on, football practice is beginning.
I am thankful for… ~Weight Watcher’s. I don’t think I can say this enough. I have lost 39.6 lbs. in five months and have improved my health beyond what I ever could have expected.
I am wearing… ~denim capris and one of my new tee shirts from GAP. It’s not a plus size shirt! YAY me!
I am remembering… ~the busy-ness of this summer. I loved having my nieces and nephew here, but it was very overwhelming. The sheer amount of laundry was crazy.
I am going… ~to take Jessica home tonight. This is the last visit of the summer as far as kids staying at my house and I am ready for the break. The Cheboygan County Fair is this week and we’re going on Thursday; should be a blast!
I am currently reading…~A romance novel. I don’t have the author’s name in front of me (which ought to tell you about how memorable this book is) but I will post it next week. I just finished the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Now that was a set of awesome books. What a great read!
I am hoping…~to lose just 1.4 lbs. this week at weigh in. If I do this, I will have reached a major milestone for myself.
On my mind… ~enjoying the last few weeks of summer with Little Man. I’m taking him to an indoor water park tomorrow with a new friend he made this summer. My friend Lorraine gave us some free passes (thanks so much Lorraine, you’re awesome!) so we’re going to use a couple.
Noticing that… ~the leaves are starting to change on a tree or two here and there, and that just makes me giddy with excitement. I love fall, bring it on!
Pondering these words…”Losing weight is hard. Being fat is hard. Pick your hard.”
From the kitchen… ~Last night it was soup, sandwiches or cereal. It was 91 degrees, humid and just too hot to cook inside. We’ve had all kinds of great food over the summer though! I don’t know what all I’ll be making this week, I guess it will be a surprise!
Around the house… ~Laundry and dishes partly done. I still have so much housework to do.
One of my favorite things…~walking with my friend Teresa. We have walked 21k so far this week. My feet are killing me, but man it’s worth it.
