How about my sister-in-law's baby shower that was on Saturday? That's something fun to talk about. It's getting so close to the due date (March 15) I can't believe it. So, I'll just post some pictures of that and let them do the talking.
|Cake that I made (I'm kind of super proud of it-my first large-ish scale cake). Chocolate cake, strawberry mousse filling and butter cream frosting. Yes, I had a piece.|
|Left to Right: Cousin, Grandma, me, cousin, cousin's new baby girl.|
|Aunts and the second one from the right is my Mommy.|
|My cousins and I. They got the good genes, I suppose.|
|Brother Justin and sis-in-law Anna.|
|My super festive rubber ducky manicure :)|
|Dinner-Buffet style. Stuffed chicken breast, green beans almondine, heavenly potatoes. This is what I took...|
|And this is how much I actually ate. I have to get used to not taking such big portions anymore. Silly me.|
It was a really good time. I also ate a few bites of salad and a small piece of cake. It was pretty tasty. Although, with all the "tastes" of batter and icing I took while I was making it, I certainly can't say I needed it.
Moving right along to today, I had my appointment with my PA. I forgot to take her my food journal again and she's going to think I'm not actually keeping tabs. I mean, sure there was that weekend thing for a while there, but she only wanted a week's worth and I had that much. I'm a bit upset with myself for forgetting. I'm also a bit upset with myself for not technically reaching the goal I set for myself last visit. Last time I was there, I told her I wanted to be under 220 by today's appointment. I am...when I'm naked. Unfortunately, they don't let you take anything off there, so I weighed in at 221.something. However, in kilograms, that's 100.6, from what they tell me, so I guess I can be excited about the fact that I'm almost in double digits in kg's. I'll take that as a bit of a win. My goal for next time is to be just regular obese instead of morbidly. their chart says that for my height (a mere 5'2") the highest weight to be obese is 210. I think I can do it if I stick to this exercise plan. My next visit is March 12, because that's when I have spring break, so it's just under 6 weeks. I'm sure I can make it happen, especially with Ben on board now. I did get a fill today of .4 ccs, which I guess will do for now. I'm now up to a whopping 2.7 ccs in my either 10 or 11 cc band (haven't looked at the sheet I wrote it down on. I think it's 11). I don't know why she's so reluctant to adjust it. Oh well, such is life. Hopefully it helps.
That's it for now, I think. I'm going to go play with my new nail polishes :)
Hope everyone's having a great week!
