First B&A and a Cute Cat

This is my first "before & after" picture of the kitchen. The rest will come soon (Hopefully, since motivation has left the building).

Bench seat - Martha Stewart brand. Cheap chipboard, caving in, re-covered at least twice

New, bigger bench seat (thank you Craigslist), was black,  now the same colour as the walls. Solid wood and sturdy, with good storage and soft new cover. Love it. 
And the cat post has no relation to the kitchen, it's just that I love him and liked this picture a lot.
Bart is the dog's doodies.

Weight Loss Week 7

Weight lost this week: 5.4 lbs
Total weight lost: 18.4 lbs

I did cheat somewhat as I drank wine last night but I wasn't too dehydrated when I weighed in, I think. And I've walked LOADS this week, doing around 3 miles each day.  I signed up for a 5K this week too. Bring it!

The crazy thing is, my jeans fit exactly the same as they did 18 lbs ago, which is very weird. Where has all the lost fat come from then? Am I going to completely lose my boobs and still have a belly? That'll be attractive!

Weight Loss Week 6 & Photo Dump

I gained a pound on Week 6, Gawdammit.   But that's what I get for drinking with my neighbor on a Thursday night and then my husband on a Friday night. Somewhere in-between there I also scoffed a lot of English cheese and a Kitkat. But I'm walking 2-4 miles every day and I did a 5k in 51 minutes which is my fastest time so far.  So I mustn't get disheartened. I've just got to keep going.

So much has happened this week. I want to post separately about some things but for right now I'm just going to share a few photos.

His bonkeyness

My mum made 62 of theses and we made $186 selling them for the boy's school. What a lovely thing she did. 

Chaos, just utter chaos. NEVER doing this again!

Snow awful snow. Go away snow!

Weight Loss: Week 5

Weight: Heffelump
Weight loss this week: 2.8 lbs
Total weight lost: 14 lbs. ONE STONE!

I have lost a stone and I'm so happy about it. Craig has lost 29 lbs (don't you just hate men sometimes) and looks 10 years younger. He looks great. We are both feeling so much better and looking forward to spring and especially excited about losing more weight for the pool and our trip home.

Oh, and I got my aviators today :)
