Wonderful Wednesday

I am doing well at maintaining my weight. I think in a few months I might join again and lose another 10 pounds. But for now, I am happy. It's fun to be tracking things loosely in my head, and not writing them down. I just keep telling myself, that even though I am not on WW, I still need to be making appropriate and healthy choices every day.

Today, I plan to make my meal plan for the week. I am trying to keep making the same healthy meals I was making while on WW. I am also going to call and join the local beach volley-ball league. That was my long term reward for hitting goal weight. I am very excited about that!

I had a Pampered Chef party last night. It did really well and I get $120 in free product! Yahoo! Plus 2 half price items and a host special. It was really fun. I had 15 girlfriends over and we had a hoot.

Hope you all have a great day!

Marvolous Monday

I'm baaaaaack! Wow, I hope I haven't been forgotten! :)

What a crazy few weeks it's been. DH was away on business for 10 days, which means I got to be Mommy and Daddy with no computer time for me! :) I honestly don't know how single Mom's do it. I have a new respect for them!

So I hit goal weight and I am trying to maintain now. I'm not going to go to the meetings anymore. I am going to keep blogging. It just seems like a lot of money to be spending just to maintain my weight! If I run into trouble, I will join again. :)

I had the best NSV this past weekend. My DH said, "I love the way you look right now. It's perfect for me. If you want to lose more, make sure it's just for you, because right now you are my ideal of the perfect body shape." WHHHOooooOOOOHHHooOOOOO! It made me blush ...and pounce! :) LOL!

More big news, we just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary! My Mom and Grandma babysat the children for us while we spent the night away. We had dinner at a fancy restaurant, (got all dressed up and everything!), spent the night at a nice hotel, had a buffet breakfast and then we spent the rest of the day at an outdoor nature spa. It was the perfect getaway! And all for just $316! We were very impressed with that package deal! :) We were able to reconnect again. What a difference to not have the kids around! We made a pact that we would try to do this every three months or so. It was amazing.

Now that hubby is home, I plan to try running again. My knee is completely better. I am going this week to the running room for get inserts for my shoes. If running doesn't work out in the long run, I plan to join the beach volleyball league here, and also join an exercise class at the local gym. I am glad to have lost the weight, but now my goal is to be toned and fit!

I've missed this! I hope you are all doing well, and I'm sorry that I've been away for too long! :)
