It’s Friday, but with my new shifted schedule I have hit my first ADF Weekend! 🙂  I’m walking as I type this, so I’m being good.. but today is also, as I promised my kids, Cookie Day… so after I’m done being good I am off to be very bad.  I’ll be making batches of sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, almond pound cake and maybe — dare I say it? — Chex mix!

Money, Day 10: Down to the Wire

Okay.. I just checked the account.  With about ten days left to the pay period, we are down to a working total of $37.   Granted, that is not including the $67 that is currently snuggled up in our Savings account, but for the sake of, you know, not being ridiculous about this, I’m going to pretend that money isn’t there.  So.  $37… to last a family of six for ten days.

And I plan to have two other families over for Chili on Saturday.  I’m good. >_<

Lent, Day 42: Narrow Garage

Yet another reminder of the fact that losing weight also means losing actual size and girth.   Andy cleaned out the garage this past weekend, which meant a lot of the stuff that had been piled up on ‘my side’ (or at least, the side where we park the van, which is the car I usually drive) was moved out and disposed of.

Lent, Day 34: How I Do It

OKay… so… I’m down nearly 60 pounds now, and believe it or not, people actually notice!  I’m sure this has to do with the fact that my clothes actually fit now, thanks to Michelle and Lisa, but regardless… Easily the most common reaction I get from people is, “What are you doing?” and, when I tell them, “Wow, how do DO that?”

So this will be the overview post.  It will be redundant, but it’s the sort of ‘shop talk’ version of the ADF thing, so it might be interesting even if you’ve been reading awhile.

Here’s what I do:

Lent, Day 33: Andy and Odwalla

Short entry today, because I’m short on time.  I just wanted to mention two things.

Sleep, Day 6: This just in: JEN DOES NOT LIKE MUFFINS!

I am pleased to announce that I am walking as I type this.  I made good on my threat to come down and walk this morning as quickly as could be managed, a feat that was made all the easier because Andy made muffins for breakfast.  Bleh!   And of course, in his usual fit of Complete Insensitivity To What Jen Likes, Andy made Chocolate Chip muffins.  I mean, seriously…. if there is one way to make a muffin even LESS appealing to me, it’s to throw chocolate into it.  YUCK.

Exercise+, Day 21: DONE!

Success!   As of this writing I have officially completed this round!  The ‘Winter Birthday Party’ today ended around 8:30, and I actually got down here by 9:00 to walk.  In the last part of this round, that’s surprisingly early for me, so I’m finished and it’s only 11:00.  I figure I’ll write this entry and then head up to bed and get a jump on next week’s goal of getting to bed by 11:30. 😉
