I am with you Jenn, cleaning the house for Thanks giving. Washing walls and windows, polishing wood furniture. The hardest part is putting all my craft projects away because I work on the dinning table. This is the first year that I am hosting Thanks giving dinner. Other years I have had the family over for New Years day but the kids complained because they always went out for new years eve and wanted to relax the day after. I used to make scalloped potatoes and ham with assorted vegetable dishes and several desserts. Now I have to cook a turkey and I have never cooked one before. Should be interesting.
Thanks giving is the second week end in October for us Canadians. I better get busy.

I'm the same Libby--cleaning places that don't get cleaned as regularly. Not only do I get a clean house I've also lost a pound from the calories I've burned. I'm doing well on my water intake this week too!

Next week it's going to be a little cooler--in the teens instead of mid twenties so I can go for more walks.

My Goals:
1) eat clean yes, yes, eh so-so
2) drink lots of water yes, yes, yes
3) 3 fruits/veggies per day yes, yes, yes
4) walk 10 miles 0, 0, 0

Well we've been kicking around honeymoon ideas and it's looking like the beach. Right now I'm looking at Montego Bay. I guess that means if I'll be walking around shirtless for a week in Jamaica, I need to drop this weight. For the past couple months I've been back over 200. I started this week at 206.2, I've pretty much undid all that I've done. On the bright side I know what to do. This morning I was down to 200.4. I need another week or two of big losses that I can stick to a pound a week. I guess I need to get back to work so I can pay for this trip.

I thought I would get a lot more done today but I am exhausted. I feel like I am running out of time. I am going to rest for a while and get back to it.

2. Drink water, M-Y, T-so-so, W-Y, Th-ok
3. Walk, walk, walk. M-2 miles, T-0, W-1 mile, Th-1 mile

water: 4, 6, 6, 6,
exercise: N, Y, Y, Y,

It's going to be an inside day because it's raining and will continue for several days according to the forecast. I have lots to do indoors any way. I have been eating junk to reward my self for all the hard work. I should stop that. The house is looking better. I need to get a table cloth because all I have is a Christmas one with poinsettias on it. I could use some Thanks Giving decorations for around the house. Maybe we can go shopping today. My pants are so loose they are almost falling off and I almost tripped on the hem yesterday. Talk about working your a$$ off. Ha Ha

Raining here too. Oh my goodness Libby I have to laugh at how in sync we are! I need to get a tablecloth too!
Have to put my laundry away and then I will work on cleaning the bathrooms. UGH not my favourite job but must be done!
