Day 2, and All is Well

Well, I waddled over to Curves again today. I hope to go early in the AM (like first thing) so it doesn't interfere with daily life so much. I met a whole new group of ladies except for one I met yesterday. I really hope to find some kindred spirits. Don't think I have so far. Very friendly, but not very like-minded.

There must have been something in the air here at our house. Rachel didn't get up until 10:58 (not that she noticed the time, LOL), James (my oldest) took a nap this AM, and I found Luke sleeping on the couch when I came in. What in the world? Was I the only one awake??

I was so inspired when I went into the "stretching room" at Curves to see that there are two ladies at my location that have lost 50 inches and over 50 pounds each. The measurements are a total of these areas...upper arm, bust, waist, abdomen, hips, and upper thigh. I usually weigh myself every day, but I'm going to try to refrain for a whole month and see what the results are after that.

Off for lunch. I think I'll just have a celery stick, LOL!

Who Needs Dippity-Doo?

As promised...above is Luke's post-jet-ski hair. Is Dippity Doo still being sold? I remember that there was always a container of it in my mother's bathroom closet.

FWIW, I started CURVES today. Updates to come!

I just noticed that my LAST post was my 150th one. Hahaha...some of you probably thought I'd hit that milestone my second week of blogging at the rate I started. Here are a few shots from our family lake day last week.

~Rachel with a new "friend". I don't even want to know where it was before it was in her hand!

~DH on the jet ski (ummm...I think you're supposed to face the other way). He must have been getting ready to tow someone on skis or the "airhead" (see below).

~Emily getting some sunshine

~Luke before his new hairdo (updates tomorrow)

Hope your evening is a great one.
