Much better….

No not all better but I’d say 75% better. At least I can lift my arm and lower my head without feeling like I’m going to pass out. My headache was manageable today also. So onward and upwards to healing and feeling better. Back to work tomorrow with my wee ones and also Mike is home too. I think we are heading to the farm to look at puppies. Mike wants a friend, a new friend to take camping, hiking, fishing, traveling and more. A man’s best friend.

We got our new menu’s today. Not bad at all. More fish then we’ve had which I like since I have crappie, sunnies and northern in my freezer. It’ a white fish so should meet all the rules. I think I’ll look into what in Burger King’s Chicken sandwich and also Wendy’s chili because I’m not driving the 50 miles to get these but I’m sure I can make something close so I’m still in the calorie range plus you have got to think that it is so cool that these things are available even when on a diet or life style journey.

So for me I have two things happening in April, one my birthday/anniversary and I have a goal, 175 and my wedding dress and a trip to Minneapolis to take my mom’s to see her sister and to visit  the Como Conservatory which I really want to be at my goal for. I’m close, very close but I need to get there and stay there. My anniversary is the 25th and our trip is the 18th. That’s 3 weeks to lose the last little bit for this goal and to tone up just a bit more to make that dress at least go on. I was talking to Jim the other day and he says I was a size 12 when we got married. I am just getting into a 14, so close but not on target yet. But still amazing, starting size 22 and now a 14. I’ll take it, even if it takes me a bit longer to make the 12 and 165. As you can see, my new goal. But June 8th is the date for that.

Measurements this week and following the plan.

Take care my friends and have a blessed and awesome up-coming week.

Wow, how I am coveting your size 14! One of these days, I'll be there too! I remembered after I left the chiropractor comment that you already use one...sorry about that. I get so excited about them that I forget sometimes. LOL

So much going on for you this month! Very exciting!
