day 10

today is day 10 of 30 days of Making the Cut. i've definitely been doing some slacking this week as far as meals go, but i'm still refraining from all sweets and unnecessary eating/snacking.

i have weighed myself and there is the possibility that i have lost 5 lbs since this whole thing started. i know i fluctuate between a few pounds, but last night i weighed the lowest i have weighed in several months, and this morning was even less (i know, you are supposed to weigh in the morning, but my original weighing was at night, so i am trying to "stay consistent" as far as that goes). it seems that my favorite jeans, which i haven't worn much in the last 6 months, are fitting more like they used to (or i really stretched them out...), so...

Tuesday bethany and i made an awesome lunch. california chicken salad with mango and avocado.
Wednesday lunch was a grilled sirloin salad with red peppers, red onion, and corn in a olive oil, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar dressing. it was pretty good as well.

exercise...has been...happening. roomie and i have been walking around the neighborhood, so that's better than nothing! i received my 30-day shred DVD in the mail yesterday so i will be able to use that soon! (super busy the next two days/nights).

other things going on:
  • remodel is almost complete. carpet is all in (looks awesome) and almost all of the furniture is in. unfortunately i ordered wrong freaking panel frames so i have to order more now to complete everything
  • singing this weekend at church, plus it's my brother in law's bday this weekend, and memorial day weekend (which means a day off! YES!)
  • roomie and i are being screwed by the electric company, trying to bill us WAY TOO MUCH MONEY, since they finally read our meter...for the first time...since 4 months before we moved in. i tried calling and causing a rucus, but i suck at that and ended up in tears. roomie came through and made it all work out...sort of. they are taking some $ off, but we still think they are charging us too much.
  • bridals showers and weddings for my awesome SKANK friends kt and nicole are coming up FAST!!
