Happy Healthy Monday
Well I only managed to gain .6 over Thanksgiving. I am so estatic over that. We got new bedroom furniture over the weekend and when we put things back in drawers I made hubby go through his clothes and get rid of what he didn’t want. He made this comment to me “It’s not a matter of what I don’t wear it’s what I CANT wear” When we got married almost 12 years ago hubby was a size 29. He is now between a 38-40. Used to wear a size small shirt and now a large. He finally has realized that he needs to lose weight. In a way I am thankful because now he knows how I feel and two he won’t keep bad stuff in the house.
So my goal for this week is to make sure I take my lunch at least 3 times this week. I bought sutff at the store today so no excuses. My knee has been bothering me so I haven’t exercised as much as I would have liked but I am doing the Wii when I can.
In the past week we have managed to spend $800 on our cars. First hubby’s car and then mine. I pray that this is the only time they will see the shop.
I have been in the Christmas spirit now that all the Christmas movies are on tv. I record all the new and try to catch all the good ones. If you have the Hallmark Channel you really check out my post on The TV Nook about Farwell Mr. Kringle. Great holiday movie.
Have a good week and enjoy the recipe.
