Hi Guys!

It's been a good day.  I have the day off and I have already done so much!  This morning I had a health screening.  I hit all of the requirements except the weight portion (I never make that one).

After my health screening, I did some grocery shopping.  I am making some goodie bags for my high school football team.  I love doing that stuff!  Each bag will be personalized with the player's name and jersey number.  I am putting a Gatorade, granola bar, fruit snack and peanut butter crackers in each one.  They will be handed out in the morning when jerseys are handed out for the pep assembly. I am super happy to make them!

I also bought some good food today for my meal plans for this week.  Since I am following a mainly Pescetarian diet plan, I bought lots of vegetables and some fish for this week.  Here are a few things I will be cooking/making this week:

  • Hummus
  • Salmon packets with steamed vegetables
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Southern cabbage
  • Loaded salad bowl
  • Cauliflower mash
I am also teaching the Kid how to make another meal.  Since he has decided to go into fire science, he wants to learn to cook larger meals.  I am teaching him how to make crock pot pork chops.  We will probably prep that one tonight so we can put it on first thing in the morning.  I know it's pork, but I think it will be okay if I have a small portion.

I will try and take some photos to let you know how I did with the meals.

One other thing I am trying to do is cut out as much dairy as possible.  It just messes with my stomach.  I love all things butter, so that will be the hardest part.  I already drink almond milk and rarely eat any cheese or ice cream.  Baby steps, right?

I also bought more make-up today.  It's getting cooler so I tend to wear more make-up in the fall and winter months.  I don't like clogging my already big pores during the summer with make-up.  I am also in love with some new lip color.  I will have to post some selfies on another day.

Well, I better get to prepping for dinner.  We are having tuna and rice casserole tonight.  Hope you have had a good day!

Finally Caught Up

With blog reading anyway.  My laundry is another story.

I did finally finish up on 4 weeks worth of blog reading.  I will admit I did some skimming.  All of the food blogs I follow, I actually skipped.  I can always go back if I want to read up on recipes.

I got back around 1 pm and went to my hair appointment.  Lisa (my hair gal) looked so tan!  She has an outdoor above ground pool and has been enjoying it all summer.  I think she has one more week before she decides to close it.  Lisa is heading to Hawaii in a few weeks to visit her son and will be staying almost one month!  I am jealous!

Anyway, I got home around 2:30 and heated up some leftover pasta, then got on the computer and just got done.  Whew!  Lots of reading!

I need to get all of my laundry sorted and get a few loads completed.  Heading back to work will be challenging since I have had 7 full days off.  But it's been so wonderful!  Colorado was gorgeous and did not disappoint the second year in a row.

Here is a small view from our balcony.  The picture does it no justice.  My favorite place was Woodland Park.  It was up in the mountains and just beautiful.  I was so much in awe of the beauty around me, I didn't take any pictures.  I was just soaking it all in.  It was so beautiful, I almost cried.  Clouds were passing me in front of my face.  I could feel the condensation of the clouds, feeling lighter than a mist.  It was amazing!

Well, I guess I better get started on this laundry.  Tomorrow starts the daily grind.  We open our new apparel dept and I have a store walk tour to attend tomorrow morning at my old store.  It will be a busy few days and then I am off again on Monday.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Project 50

I have been catching up on blogs all day. I had to go back four weeks to catch up. I'm still in the process of reading now, but I should be caught up by the end of this week.

My boyfriend and I have decided to vacation in South Korea next year. My mom was planning a trip back and wanted me to go. I am really looking forward to the trip, since I have not been back there since I was born. Before I head back to South Korea, I really want to lose at least 50 pounds.

So, I have come up with a diet plan that will keep up with my every day, crazy life. I did a lot of research while I was on vacation last week. I am looking forward to getting back down to the weight I was 10 years ago. Lol... I've got one year to do it!

I will track my progress each week. There are a couple of apps I plan to use on my iPhone to help me. I promise not to bore you even more with the details, but I will update a few times to let you know about my progress.

I head back to Kansas tomorrow, back to work on Wednesday. It's been a fantastic vacation!

Vacation Is Almost Over

We got back from our vacation to Colorado yesterday.  It was great!  I had so much fun and the scenery was breathtaking.  I know I haven't posted much and I am way behind on my favorite blogs.  I will be spending some time today and tomorrow catching up to see how everyone is doing.

Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend!

So Busy

Sorry. It's been so busy. Plus... I've been obsessed with Vlogs on YouTube. I have been thinking about starting one. Thoughts?
