Super Excited

Wooo hooo! It is amazing how something so seemingly little is so exciting! The dryer is DONE! It works wonderfully! I'm super excited!

Dinner was done when I got home tonight. I was nice and well worth the effort I made this morning! After dinner, I used up the few banana's that were starting to get soft (I only like my banana's when they hvae no black spots on them....when they start to speckle..they are tooo old. I prefer them firm). SO I made a big batch of banana muffins. I had a lot of points left I did test the batter....and I did have a finished product. I made them with black walnuts (from my very own trees outside...picked, hulled and cracked by yours truely). I don't like black they will not be at all tempting for me. :-) I froze half the batch...because Todd doesn't need to have that many muffins. THey would go bad before he could eat them all.

This morning I was almost in tears with dreading the thought of exercising! It was pitiful. I finally literally stopped and asked my self, "what is more important? Having an extra 45 minutes today or being thin? I chose being thin. :-)

I'm still planning on trying the core plan of weight watchers next week (my weight watchers week...starting Tuesday). I'm a bit nervous about it...but I'm going to give it a whirl. I plan on sitting down tomorrow after work and laying out my menus for the next week (something I normally do) and get myself all geared up for it!

Good quote...think I've put it in here before...but here goes again, "Pain is temporary, giving up is forever"

Ok, last winter I was cold all the time. I figured it was from the loss of all that know, it had to have been working as an insulator. Well, I had hoped that this year would be better. Is it? HECK NO! I'm already about frozen solid and it's not that overly cold out! This is terrible! That is probably the only negative to losing all this weight!
I was down a bit on the scales...not down to the 183 that I was at on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. BUT down from the 185.2 that I was at yesterday morning. I was a dead on 184 pounds this morning. That makes me VERY happy! I want to bring it down further...obviously!

This morning I was the exact same weight as a friend. It really makes me think. My friend who is the same weight wears a 8/10. Me, I'm in a 14/16. What the heck. Yeah yeah, I know that everyone carries their weight differently...but that's a HUGE difference! What in the world will I need to get down to in order to wear an 8?????? NUTTY!

I planned out what we are having for dinner. I actually did a good deal of the prep work....that way when I get off at 6 or 6:30 it twill be quick. I showed Todd what has been done and left instructions...that way, if he is done with his work, he can get it started! Woo hooo.

Work...Todd. Well.....he is working on fishing a wire through the wall. Our dryer electric line...the cable that goes from the dryer outlet to the breaker box apparently doesn't work. Our dryer was under warranty and stopped working....we called the service guy. He put a new motor in and found it still didn't work. LOVELY. Yeah, that left it being the joy. So, we bought the line...and 'rigged' it up (basically connected it at the breaker box...and ran it up the stairs and through the halls and hooked it up at the outlet) to check it. Yeah, it worked GREAT! SOOOOO thus commences the 'fishing' expedition. I'm praying that he can get it. It was being very stubborn this morning!!!
