What's New in the Neighborhood?
The biggest news in the neighborhood is that I am again walking in it :) I seriously love walking around the neighborhood and how it always makes me feel. Then why is it so hard to get myself out there everyday??
The second biggest news in the neighborhood is that the house on my block that has been abandoned for about 10 years has finally been sold and is being flipped. As you can imagine, the house was a hot mess - broken windows, holes in roof, overgrown yard, etc.Apparently the inside was a disaster too. Everything has been taken down to the studs and shell now. It will be interesting to see it put back together. And on the fun side, we know one of the flipping partners so we've had an inside look at the progress and heard the final vision. Can't wait to see how it turns out and hopefully we will get get some great new neighbors.
On to today's weigh-in. I am super happy to report I have two losing weeks in a row. This week I lost 1.2 pounds (I think). My scale was a little sketchy this morning, but I am going with that number to keep me extra motivated this week. If I didn't lose quite that much, I am going to have to work harder for a loss next week.
Weigh in day is always a challenge for me. I have to watch out for the my-next-weigh-in-is-so-far-away trap. I tend to make too many splurges and then stress the rest of the week trying to make up for it. I ate a normal breakfast (cereal with blueberries), packed my lunch (leftover grilled chicken and broccoli, zucchini pie and a peach). We are buying our trim tonight (if the rain stops) so there is a good possibility we will get dinner while we are out. If I stick to my plan, I will have a little wiggle room. I don't want to waste my "treat" on random calories throughout the day.
Linking up with Winter at No Drama Little Mama for Weigh-in Wednesday.
