Wednesday Weigh~In, 4/27/2011

Last Week:  175 lbs; This Week: 173.5 lbs

Since January: 26.5 lbs {mostly baby weight, literally}

Target Weight: 140 lbs; So… 33.5 pounds still to go!

I haven’t gotten any cardio work-outs in since last weigh-in.  The only reason I lost the 1.5 lbs is because I have been doing really well watching my portions, and not eating/drinking anything but water after 6:00 p.m. {or so}.  That has really made a difference.

I have been taking a pre-cooked frozen chicken breast and frozen peas to work for lunch.  I separate the chicken breasts into individual zip-locks, and I put 1cup of peas in a separate zip-lock.  Then in the morning I just have to grab one of each on the way out the door.  Easy, and about as automated as you can get.

My other ‘cheat’ is getting flavored seltzer water from HEB.  Their store brand is wonderfully flavored with 0 Calories, Caffeine Free, and Sodium Free.  This really helps with the afternoon pop/coke cravings.

What have you been doing to keep on-track?


  1. Congrats on the loss!!! You are doing awesome!!

  2. Way to go...I'm trying to lose I've started portion control this week...and trying to work out...but I did too much yesterday and can hardly walk today. LOL! =) I think it's really awesome that you're willing to share. This is an encouragement to me. Nice to know that you're not alone =)

  3. Congrats on the loss! I weigh in tonight and I had a rough week, so the scale might not be so nice. Oh well, today starts a new Weight Watcher week and that's all I can focus on now.

  4. Congrats on the weight loss! Baby weight seems to be the hardest to get rid of. Your doing great!

  5. Congrats! I'm trying to lose my baby weight too (almost 4 years later :)). Sounds like it's going great! :)

  6. YAY YOU!!!

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
