new dining chairs....oh my ;)

I am giddy like a school girl over my new chairs!!

I bought them from here.  They are glorious!  I. Am. In. Love. If I weren't already married, I would marry these chairs.   (love you honey!)

I will take a pic of them in my dining room sometime this week.  Right now I am in the middle of redoing an armoire in there and it's a freaking mess.  :)

I lost me 7.5 lbs last week!!
I was going to start 30 Day Shred today, but alas we are rocking a sick family these days!  



  1. First of all, love the chairs!

    Second of all, what are you doing eating wise? I need tips :) 7.5 lbs is awesome!!

  2. Breakfast:
    oatmeal with a tablespoon of coconut oil (it's suppose to prevent alzheimers), cinnamon, nutmeg a little honey and a handful of berries (fresh or frozen) or

    2 eggs over easy and a piece of toast no butter (I put the smashed eggs on the toast and I don't miss the butter...every little bit helps.)

    Then whenever I am hungry I eat a handful of almonds and a piece of fruit or a tablespoon of peanut butter.

    Lunch: I made a broth based soup, it's just 2 boiled chicken breasts, a frozen bag of mix veggies and a frozen bad of cauliflower. I cook the chicken in chicken broth and some salt and spices(thyme, bay leaf). Then I just have a huge bowl of that and a piece of fruit. I'm hoping the whole pot lasts this whole week....I hate cooking lunch for just me and Audrey. I don't have a problem fixing her lunch, but I have a tendency of neglecting to feed myself! This soup helps.

    If I am hungry again before dinner I just grab an apple or some greek yogurt-like a cereal bowl full :) I put honey and berries in it too. If not it tastes like eating sour cream!! :)

    we had chicken, swiss steak, stir fry, shrimp and that's all I can remember...I may need more coconut oil! haha. Anyways I usually make 2 veggies with dinner or rice, potatoes or something. I only eat one serving spoonful of the stuff that's high calorie. (normally I would eat 2 or 3)

    my biggest obstacle last week was no refined sugar....I am a huge dessert junkie.

    I'm not following any diet because they never work for me anyways. I am giving myself a "free" day. We called it sweet Saturdays. I let myself have dessert on this day and reasonably eat what I want. If I don't do this I will go batshit crazy and eat everything in sight. Last Saturday we went to Ihop for dinner and had cheesecake pancakes with strawberries....they were divine. This weekend I am making a cheesecake or peanut butter cookies. Not sure yet.

    I was down 9 lbs, but after Saturday I bounced back to only a 7.5lb loss. But, I don't feel bad about it. I refuse to feel bad about it :)

    1. You should definitely not feel bad at all! That's really great! I think I need to focus more on eating the right things... I'm doing okay portion/amount-wise, but I think I default to too many processed/convenience foods like grabbing a lean cuisine for lunch at work when I should take the time to pack a salad or something. I'm going to work on that.


I love all your comments! Thank you for stopping by :)
