Looking back

I just looked through my blog that I started in July 2017. Wow. That’s crazy!

In October 2017, we moved in with my mother and I posted a selfie in my blog.

I took a screenshot of the selfie and did a comparison with a shot from January this year. Wow!

That’s crazy, right???

It’s getting down to 32F here in Houston tonight. It’s been 70 in the daytime and in the 40’s or 50’s at night so this is cold to us!

Different kind of day for me

Started out normal. Wake up at 5, shower at 5:30, wake kid up at 6, out the door by 7. He wanted donut holes so we left a few minutes early and went by Shipley’s. Then I took him to school and off I went to to get my blood drawn. Then to the doctor. Then home.

Now my plan WAS to go to work. That didn’t happen. I was asleep by 1pm and did not wake up until 3:30! My sons karate class is at 6 so I didn’t want to risk being across town so I didn’t work. Didn’t cook either.

While he was in karate, I decided to get off my arse and get a workout in. I ended up doing 45 minutes on the treadmill. I started with a plan of 30 minutes and then just kept going for 45.

I was a little red when I finished. I was sweating before I even started and have no clue what that’s about but I still did it!

Before I went to the gym, I looked in my mothers purse cabinet to find a small bag that I could put over my shoulder while I was working out and walking to and from the gym. What I found was even better! I found my dad’s fanny pack. I tried it on and it fit. I am so excited that I can wear something that small (my dad was pretty thin). I had my friend put it around her waist and I only need about 2-3 more inches to be her size! Woo hoo! Another non scale victory!

I also went through all of the keys that were hanging up in the kitchen. I tested every key on every lock and these are the ones that don’t fit a darn thing in our house.

We ended up with about 7 keys hanging up. And 2 are neighbors from where I used to live! I need to take those to them. Well, grandma (my friends grandmother that has told me to call her grandma) will probably tell me to keep hers.

My dinner was a little weird. 2 slices cheddar cheese, 2 slices Monterey Jack jalapeƱo cheese, a low carb tortilla with butter and Himalayan salt, and 2 peanut butter keto cookies.

That’s different, right? Lol I enjoyed every bite!

And my calories/macros were great too! It was a good day even though I made $0. There’s always today!

Today I will be driving for the company. I slept well and got exercise so I should be good to go!

Y’all have a great day!

The difference hair and makeup make

I only wear 3 things of makeup. Covergirl All day lipstick, eyeliner, and mascara. Yesterday when I felt like dog doodoo, I took a picture with the cat in my lap. So today, I took a selfie after I showered and did my hair. Yes, doing that has worn me out and I’m in bed probably the rest of the day, but wow, what a difference!!!

Y’all have a great day. I’m washing my sheets and then crawling back in them!

Whew!

I went to work out this morning! Now I'm all showered and ready to go to a job. It seems like my likes went down after I posted a picture of myself after a workout so I thought I would show you me ready for work.

And here is my 30 minute walk results. I will get faster I'm sure. A bit over a mile in 30 minutes is not fast at all!!! I need to step it up next time.

That's all for now. If anything interesting happens today, I'll post it later.
