Update: The burger was delicious, I had half of it.

You have a large shoe collection!

Aw man. I didn’t mean to post the shoe closet pic :( I thought about it then changed my mind...i guess I didn’t properly delete it. Oopsies.

Anyhoo, full disclosure: those aren’t my shoes nor my shoe closet (I can only wish). They belong to a pal o mine....and she has an insanely large shoe collection. What you see is only one wall of THREE walls of shelves of shoes. Crazy.

B. Who do I resemble.

It is an obscure actress, Linda Fiorentino. When the original Men in Black came out strangers would stop me to inform me of the resemblance. “You look just like the actress in Men in Black”. I think it happened 10+ times over a few months. I’m sure it helped that we had the same hairstyle and color.

Even my husband mentioned it separately one day. I kind of see the resemblance, but not to the degree where I was stopped on the street. This was 20 years ago, so not so much now.

Hi all, I am such a slacker with my posts this month! I can't say I've done any exercise other than the gym for my arms this week...except I tried my first session of PIYO the other morning. So some updog/cobra action, arm circles, and plank happened with that and that was during the lower body session! LOL. I'll be heading out to the gym shortly and thinking I'll do some lawn mowing later. My reward for that will be going for a swim after. Anyway, I adopted a puppy last week. She is very cute and I find that as I adjust to her presence and her needs, I'm on the computer much less than usual. I even get up earlier to go to the gym and then come home and make sure she goes out before I head to work. Then it's a mad dash home at lunch time so she can go out.

Stay cool peeps!

I had to google PIYO. I'm intrigued. There is an on-demand video class on my TV that I think I'll give a try later :)

Yay puppy for contributing to forming healthy habits ♥️.

The Cubs game was crazy hot yesterday but we made it! There is no way could I have made it through a day like yesterday last year. We left the house at 8:15 am and got home at 10 pm while it was a heat index of 106. I would have been too exhausted and overheated to stick it out. I’m so grateful I was able to go this year.

We walked a lot and didn’t eat great, although we did have dinner at a fantastic taco place. I stayed just under 1000 calories. I swear I drank over a gallon of Water at the game.

Back to the routine today, however we are still under an extreme heat warning so I’ll probably stay indoors for the most part.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
