Beautiful Day

children20.gif image by dutchtreatIt has been a beautiful day today. I can't believe the other day it was 14 below and today it is 59 degrees. It is making me think of spring. I had a few windows and doors open today. I know it will be short lived.  hobbieblink74.gif image by dutchtreat I keep thinking about my garden. Counting down the days.

This week I was having a hard time staying on plan but I did lose 4 lbs. I am not making anymore cookies. A few hours ago someone came to the door and my hubby answer it, it was the girl scout that my hubby ordered cookies from. I couldn't believe it. He ordered 3 boxes. I am staying upstairs and not going near them.

The other day I was cleaning out my pantry and I had some barley and lentils so I went on line and found this wonderful soup. It tastes so good. I still have tons left because no one else in the house will eat it. I may freeze some since I just got through making chicken breasts in the crockpot with my spicy tomato OBST-03.gif image by dutchtreatsauce with vegetables. I put it over brown rice. That is what I had for dinner.

My daughter daughters_mr.gif image by dutchtreatand I did the 1 mile walk away the lbs tape.walkgalani.gif image by dutchtreat I thought I was going to die halfway through. We probably could have gone outside and walked since it was so beautiful but we decide to do the tape instead. I pulled my pro form machine from out of the walk in closet. I am going to start slow on that machine because it is hard. 81-945371089.gif image by dutchtreat

My daughter goes back to school tomorrow. It is going to be a very busy week. Her volleyball games start tomorrow. On Tuesday we are both suppose to volunteer for market day at her school but she has a game so it will probably be me and hubby doing that since we have to miss her game. Market day is mandatory this year. She is graduating 8th grade in May so we have to put in volunteer hours.

Well, I think I am going to go start my new book that hubby bought for me.

Our weather was warmer these past couple of day too....Gardening has been on my mind(looking at the dead plants will do that to ya. lol)
Way to go on the weight loss and sticking to it. I bet you are really gonna drop the pounds consistently, while adding exercise into the mix.
Enjoy your new book.
