So today is my 180 day milestone on my diet. I had reached my goal on Monday and almost posted then as I was so excited. But this morning I woke up to major PMS swelling and bounced up a whole 1.3 pounds. Since I've been drinking a ton of water, exercising and eating really well I think I still made goal. Usually I gain about three pounds once a month so it's possible I'm a pound and a half under my goal. Which would be cool. I tell you in five days or so once the swelling goes down.
It's not the grand hoorah I was hoping for but us women have to deal with monthly variables.
My new goal is to lose sixteen pounds by February 6th - my birthday. This week of renewed focus has me back in the groove and I'm looking forward to meeting that goal in time for our trip.
With the introduction of so many laptops into our life (did I tell you that story?) I decided to make it really special and bought us all new Gelaskins. They are a protective "skin" for the top of your laptop, ipod or phone that look really, really cool.
We got this one for Chris:
This one is Trenton's:
Mine (I even have a Bam Pop style flying robot!):
And I cut Chris's old Gelaskin down small enough to fit our ancient laptop so Brayden wouldn't feel left out. Imagine it without the splattery side and less medical bag:
