Checking In!

Hi everyone!!

I hope that everyone had a nice weekend. I got a lot of things accomplished and had a great day shopping...despite my mother's usual antics! Things are going well with my boarder, he's very neat and quiet. No issues yet! Work has been fairly steady the last two days and the weather is BEAUTIFUL. If only my allergies weren' trying to kill me!

It's weigh-in day eve...and I don't think I lost. I know I say this every week and I have been losing consistently. But with my eating out this week and my PCOS (this is going on 5 weeks now that I've had my period, someone please put me out of my misery!?), I feel bloated and gross. I need to start increasing my activity and I bought a Gaiam Weightloss Yoga DVD, its a box set of two DVDs that I bought at Target this weekend for 14.99, not bad! The only problem is that my DVD player was funky before but now it's plain broken. It's very old, it even has a VCR in it (so you KNOW it's old!!). I know it's time to replace but I'm strapped for cash at the moment. Buying a VCR has to wait until the mortgage payment gets made and the bills get taken care of.

We shall see what the almighty scale has to say. Right now all I'm feeling is weak and tired. I only had three patients to see today so I am home now, I cleaned the kitchen up, I am finishing up the last of my laundry, and I'm going to be taking a nap this afternoon to try and combat some of my crampiness and my weakness. Bleh. PCOS sucks!

On a non weightloss side, I got a bunch of awesome goodies shopping to help me with weight loss! My nonstick pans I moved with were all hand me downs or from yard sales, and they're getting to the point where they're not nonstick anymore. They had Paula Deen red nonstick skillet sets on sale for 25 bucks...and I bought myself some! I got those Yoga DVDs! I also bought a lovely centerpiece and a table cloth (That's not plastic) for my dining room table at Homegoods! I was a bargain ninja and bought a TON of stuff for very little money! I got great deals! (I LOVE SAVING MONEY!) Next up on my bargain shopping: DVD player. And trying to find my yoga mat. I know I packed it when I moved, but I have noooo idea where it is now.

For right now I just need to not fall over...and keep positive for my weigh in! Hope everyone is having a great on plan week!


  1. I'm a sucker for a good bargain!! I always hit those sale racks!! I totally bought a VCR at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago so I could play all of my old Disney movies!

  2. Would love a DVD review. I've been doing a little yoga, but none t home yet. Inquiring minds want to know...
