Weekly Spark

Is anyone else finding these updates redundant?  I am, a bit.  I do think the accountability does me some good.  Having said that, I lost .8 pounds this week, bringing my total to 13.6 pounds since the beginning of the year.  I had set a goal of 20 pounds by our Disney trip, but with the vacation coming up fast, that just isn't going to happen.  I'm okay with that, as the changes I've made are changes I can live with long term, rather than a quick fix type of diet.  I'll take the slow and steady path if it means I won't have to go through this every couple years.

We're getting excited for the trip.  The community we're staying in has a nice workout room and I have arranged a buddy to exercise with me.  Just one problem:  I work out at home in my jammy pants and a sports bra.  I don't want to do that on vacation, LOL. They will kick me out for sure.  So this morning, I shopped for workout wear on eBay. I'm afraid I got a little carried away.  I just got so many great deals!  Looks like I hit it at the right time, because one woman listed half a dozen new items, in my size, for about half of what I'd have to pay from the vendor.  I bought them all.  Yeah, I got carried away.  I was pretty happy about not having to schlep out to the mall and hunt for bargains, until an hour later when I bent over and felt the underwire in my bra go "snap".  I only have two bras.  Looks like I'll be going to the mall after all.  Sigh.

Bright and early this morning, the roofers will start the tear off on our tornado damages shingles.  Being us, naturally, there's an issue.  The contractor has not provided the written contract we (meaning "I") asked for.  We've used this guy before, so Walker isn't hung up on having a contract, but there is no way I will allow anyone to work on my home without a contract.  We called him and he assured us he'll have the paperwork in hand when they get here this morning.  Cross your fingers for us.  I'd really like something to go smoothly ~


  1. Hey 13# is # that should stay off! Slow and steady runs the race! I hate shopping too, BTW.

  2. snap = funny
    if, you want the same bra
    you might be able to buy it online (?)
    change 'LilySlim" = 13.6 lbs
    contract = good

  3. Thanks, Salem, for the reminder. I think you will like the story I'm writing for tomorrow =^..^=

  4. Congratulations on the weight loss. The NEW workout clothes sound TERRIFIC. BEWARE of Roofers. We had one run out on us and we had a signed contract. GOOD LUCK.

  5. You are doing great with your weight loss! Yes, you are! Keep on going, doing what you are doing.

    Good luck with your roof work.

    (Yes, when I am out of town, I don't know where I am half the time, but tonight I have found out, I am in Tucson, AZ...haaa.)

    Take care.
