Weightloss Mondays

I guess you can tell how much I lost by the picture above. Yes, I lost one pound and I am happy. As I said before this is a long journey and there will be weeks I can lose more and weeks I will not lose. This past week was a loss and I am happy.

I was not able to exercise as much as I wanted. A few days ago I woke up with a painful knee and it seems it wants to stay. I am thinking it is my Bursitis coming back. I had it a few years ago and it went away. I am hoping it is not, but time will tell.

Why is it when you get older you have to be careful of everything when it comes to your body. If there is one piece of advice I can give to you younger people is to lose the fat when you are young. It is so hard to lose it when you get alot older.

I am going back to sitting on the couch with a heating pad on my knee and hopefully it will get  better soon. Last week it was the ice pack.  At least I can get some reading and sewing done while resting my knee.

My Blue and White Dining Room

When I redid our bedroom into a bohemian theme I took my blue candle holders and boxed them up. I later thought that I should put them back up since I love them, but where?  The perfect place was the dining room. So I decided to put more blue in there with them.

I bought a blue white tablecloth last year, but never used it and so now it is out. So country don't you think.

  I had this bowl for years and love the blue roses on it. I put the small cobalt candle holders on the table with small white candles.

A few years ago Hubby started at a new stone yard with the same company, but his hours varied. Sometimes he does not make it home for dinner on time. He hated eating at the table alone and it was too late for me to eat with him, so we bought him this little tray table and I always have a placemat on it for him. He brings it in the living room to eat and watch tv.

 I did have some lighthouse pictures on the wall, but wanted more blue and more color too. I had these pictures in another frame in the living room so I took them out and put them in these frames and it shows the blue mat and pictures more.

    This was always in here, but again I took the picture and put it with a blue mat in a different frame.

        This was already in here, but the blue in the quilted wall hanging fits perfect.

On top of the bookcases is where I decided to put all the candle holders that had been in our bedroom. 

I see that I forgot to take a picture of one of the white and blue candle holders. Camera is charging so will show next time.  That's it for my blue and white dining room

I am joining The Charm Of Home for Home Sweet Home, come and see others that are joining too.

Weightloss Mondays


It was a beautiful weekend for us. We worked around the house again and I will take pictures soon to show what we  did.

Lost two more lbs since last week. I am so happy with the continue weightloss. I know that soon I will have one of those plateaus and that will be something I will have to accept. I have alot of weight to lose and I figure I will have a lot of plateaus coming my way. So far the total weightloss is 28 lbs.

Since we worked out in the yard this weekend I wanted to fix a quick dinner and Hubby wanted tacos. Now that can have a lot of calories in it and we talked about it. I am sorry I forgot to take pictures but you can imagine what they looked like.

In the past I would have eaten about four tacos and hubby about 6. We would have also piled on the ingredients in them too. Loads of hamburger, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.  For dessert we would have had some cookies or cake.

This time I ate 2 and he ate 3. I cooked a little hamburger with a little ground turkey and I also put a lot of mushrooms in the pan with the seasonings. I only fixed enough for about 5 tacos.  We put more lettuce and tomatoes on them when we made the tacos. We put a little cheese on them and no sour cream.

For dessert we had single servings of jello  that I made and put on a little cool whip. That was our dinner last night.

Anyone else find ways to eat what you want, but make it lower calorie?
