NO is the word

Weight Loss Challenge

First things first.  It's Thursday which means I'm linking up with Lindsey and Rachel it's time for the Jiggle Challenge.  This week was an interesting one for me.  I'm adjusting to my new schedule at work.  Since it's a clinic, the office "closes" for lunch.  We actually eat lunch at a normal time.  At the hospital, I was lucky if I ate a meal by 4pm (and my shift would start at 7am, sometimes 6:30).  I'm home for dinner and we eat at a normal time.  No more dinner at 9pm (I'm sure that didn't help my weight gain).  I did go out to dinner a lot this week and had a couple drinks.  Exercise wasn't as much as I planned.  I did some walking this week, which included pulling Noah (aka 40lbs) in a wagon for 1/2 a mile.  That was quite the workout, let me tell you.  I set my alarm to get up to run before work one day.  I didn't actually get up but the effort was at least present.  With all of this, I am excited to say that I lost another 1.6lbs.  I am not sad to say goodbye to that 0.88% of my body weight. 

So on to other things....I found out that I had a loose stone in my wedding ring.  It desperately needed a cleaning and to have the rhodium redone so I decided to take it in for a tune up.  I picked it up today and it was like putting on my ring for the first time.  The diamonds are so sparkly, the silver (well white gold) is so silver, all in all, I fell in love with it all over again.  I did get a talking to because I guess I should be bringing my ring in for inspection every 6 months.  I've had it for 6.5 years (including the time with my engagement ring) and I think it's been inspected twice.  Believe me, I'll be taking them in all the time just so the diamonds will sparkle like they do now!
I was trying to catch the sparkle at the red lights on the way home...didn't work too well but I'm in LOVE!!!
No is now the new favorite word in our house.  Emmy has decided to use this fabulous word in response to anything.  Want to eat? No.  Want to play? No.  Want to wear shoes? No.  Oh and then throw in some dramatic hand movements and you have my cute, adorable toddler.  I knew she was sassy but oh my.  She is quite the dramatic one. 
Did I mention that I love living in Florida?  Well I do.  You might hear me complain about the heat in a few months but I wouldn't live anywhere else.

I love them!!!
Prayers going out to everyone affected by the horrible storms this week.    Photobucket
