It's been awhile since I've participated in Leslie's Whatcha Workin' on Wednesday. I really haven't been up to anything crafty or especially interesting, but I decided to go ahead and bore you with something anyway! :)
Remember the desk that Jason (I mean Santa) made for Joy? Well it has been painted and finally moved into her room. We found a wall for it. Now this is just a peek at it, because it will look totally different when you see it all together. It will have a "window" above it on the wall. Actually it's framed to look like a window with each pane being a bulletin board. Then at the bottom of the window is a "window box" to hold stuff. There will also be a little added back to the desk against the wall of cubbie holes for additional stuff. But this is the basic desk. Joy is especially excited that she will have a place for the computer her brother passed down to her.
Here's a little closer look at the desk. Can you see the trim? I love this trim that Jason used! It goes in her room really well.
Probably the thing Jason and I have been working on mostly around here is our willpower, determination, and self control. Like alot of you are doing, we are trying to be healthier. We wanted to exercise everyday and drop some pounds!
So this has become a daily friend......our gazelle. I really don't mind it all. I like to think while riding it. Actually, I feel so much better when I start exercising. Jason and I are encouraging each other!
And these have become very close friends.....(I love this cinnamon pecan flavor)!
I guess you could say we're doing a combination of a Special K diet and Weight Watchers. We kind of keep up with points, but for me, it's easy to follow the Special K cereal twice a day and eat a normal meal once a day. Of course, I get a couple of breakfast bars throughout the day if I want or need them. Jason is doing the same. He, of course, gets to eat more than me!
So far, Jason has lost about 11 lbs and I have lost 10.5 lbs. And yes, that .5 is very important to me! lol! I know I only need to weigh every week, but that's hard. I tend to step on those scales everyday and I'm impatient...I want to see it go down everyday, which I know isn't supposed to happen. We've lost this amount in four weeks, so I think that's pretty normal.
Jason wants to lose about 20 lbs more. I want to lose about 10-13 pounds more. So that's what we're working on around here......lots of self discipline! :)
Be sure and check out what everyone is up to with Leslie's Watcha Workin' on Wednesday! :)
