Foto Friday - W7.D6

Friday, June 11, 2010

It's FRIDAY! Which, for me, is Saturday part I. It's my chance to get things done around the house and to get outside during the day and get some activity in the great outdoors. I'm thinking we'll hit up the lake later today because it might pour tomorrow...plus I can't remember if my mom is supposed to be getting the boys tomorrow...should probably call her and find out. *lol*

A wrap-up of highlights of this week in pictures.


We tried this Roasted Red Potato Casserole. YUM! It's tastes a lot like "loaded potatoes." You can find it on SparkRecipes.

THIS was made by God! This vanilla honey greek yogurt tastes sooo good! I added a little of my homemade Strawberry jam and a little granola on top. *love*

I got this yesterday at the market. There was something weird with the blackberries, but the biggest deal was the kiwi. I tried a kiwi once in 1994. Hated it! I tried it again yesterday, remembering that i also used to hate pineapple and now I love it. Turns out I love kiwi now too. It's true - your tastes change as you age.


The Rocky song was going through my head as I considered this week how much of a fighter I've been working through this knee problem and trying Zumba again. I love it when I surprise myself!

I'm getting dimples where they're supposed to be now! Now my collarbones aren't popping out like crazy (I'm still 390 pounds), but they're making random appearances in the mirror. Love that! The other day I was showering and thought - my shoulders are getting smaller.

I have worked out so much this week that I'm feeling a rush of confidence. My self-esteem isn't a constant 10, but it's moved to a solid 8 most days. It's very cool to realize that I can do more than I thought I can!


My youngest son, Ethan. He's adorable and a mini-Mommy. (Seriously, my oldest looks just like his dad.) I think he loves that we get to do more fun things like going to the park where he can ride his bike. (One downer about living out in nowheresville is that it's hard to find a place to ride bikes...we have to drive into town or to the park or school.)

Plans for today:
Doctor appointment at 9:45am today.
Weeding the garden. (It REALLY needs this!!)
Lake. We're thinking of going out on a boat today. Also might take our new neighbors (a girl I've worked with for nearly 4 years moved in about a mile from my house) to show them where we like to go on the weekends. Maybe I'll take some pictures of it to share with all of you.
Cleaning. Our house needs some serious reorganizing. My room still isn't put together again after we had to rearrange for the new king-sized bed. Time to get things back together.

Hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend!

    "You're a Contender!" Thats all I can think of when I see your new pic. LOL. ANd you are such a good contender too. I find your enthusiasm and motivation inspiring. Its amazing how active you are at your weight. I know I am older than you but I am definitely jealous. My knees are shot and I have actually been told that I need knee replacement but I think I can put it off by several years by taking off weight. BUts its such a vicious cycle when I try an activity and it puts too much stress on my joints. I guess I still need to focus mostly on swimming for now but hope to be able to get more active on dry land soon. Keep up your incredile work and thanks again for sharing, I absolutely love the way you write. emoticon

    Sounds like a great weekend! I found that taking care of myself always improves my selfesteem. If I don't log my calories and exercise my self esteem goes way down even if I haven't gained weight.

    Mmmm, love the fruit and yogurt. I hear you on that "funny blackberry" taste sometimes. Dunno what that is!

    Good luck at the doc's. I'm sure you'll be fine!
