Weekly Weigh-In (#42)

152.6 Today.  So that's good.  Down 0.7 from last week.

I gained about a pound less than Dennis so I win the competition between the two of us.  Which means I am the winner... no prize since neither of hit the 10 pound loss we were shooting for.  However, we made it through Thanksgiving MUCH bettter than we have in years past. 

The exercise room that I set up in the Front Room is very functional, looks pretty good and is seeing some use by me.  I'm so proud.  I've not established an everyday habit yet, but I'm in there three to four times a week for the last two weeks. Yay for me.  The exercise room has the Total Gym that we borrowed from my parents, the Elliptical Machine and the Recumbant Bike and the Fitness Balls.  


I had put a blanket on the window for a temporary privacy screen... TACKY, I know, but effective on a couple of levels. 

Dennis HATES the blanket.  After we talked over priorities and money, Dennis contacted a blind company and had them come out and take measurements and I'm getting some Cellular Blinds!!!!  Merry Christmas to me!!!   They are double celled and will be great for insulating the window during the summer and the winter.  They should be here in about 3 weeks.  I deferred to Kaylee's choice on color after I chose my top 4 picks.  She really does have good taste, and I trust her artistic judgement over mine.  Until then, the blanket will stay, because despite my sparkle, I really don't want to exercise for the neighborhood, and I'm feeling really great about the exercise.
Oh... and I'm giving next year's "word of the year" lots of thought.  This is an important decision after all and must be carefully thought out.  Don't want to be throwing a word out there like ORDER... as Dennis pointed out, I could get confused, and start placing orders off of home shopping network instead of organizing the closet.  Thinking thinking thinking...

NICE exercise room! Go you!
I was stuck between order and simplify myself. I finally went with simplify because I intend to apply it to more than just the "stuff" in my life.
And I have been enjoying the online shopping of late. Wouldn't want the ordering to get out of control. ;)

The big plunge...
