Conversation #92: Do Better Mondays

So I’m not signed up for a Weight Watchers subscription anymore, but I still track my points in the little book each day and bought the point companion books and calculator and I may do this for the rest of my life.  I’m sure at some point it will become second nature.

Anyway, I figure I shouldn’t call it a Weight Watchers update anymore because I will at some point get these last 3.5 pesky pounds off and reach my goal.  However, I still want to track my goals to healthy living to hold me accountable.

On Sundays before church I’ll watch Fox News and they have a segment with Dr. Rosenfeld.  He always gives a health tip to start the week off right and do better this week than last.  That kind of stuck with me one week (no tip in particular, just that I can start the week over and do better).  My WW week starts on Sunday so I figure Monday is a good day to write my goals for the week.  Also, I have a bachelorette party weekend coming on Friday so I won’t to make sure and be good this week so I can splurge on Saturday.

My goals for the week:

I stepped up to level 3 of The Shred this week so keep doing that each morning (today through Friday).

Incorporate more dairy into my food this week – I used to drink a ton of milk but cut back on Weight Watchers.  Now I want to incorporate it back in because I know it is important.  Therefore, I need to get better at giving up some of my little treats during the day.  It is all about priorities baby!

Finally, I hope to lose 1 pound this week (okay really 2, but I’m trying to be realistic with a bachelorette party coming up).

So, what are you going to do better this week?

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
