CSD Day 3

Yesterday (Day 2) I ended up going to the Farmer's Market in Lodi, I bought some veggies and fruit. I also went into to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, do not go in there while dieting, it smelt delicious, I bought Joe a apple and Leslie bought two. We even walked by my favorite pizza Guantonio's. I did so well even turned down a drink. Day 3 has been so much easier, I figure I am half way there. Here's to eating less calories and being beach bod ready.

On the bat front, Delk was working on the "bat cave" at lunch! ! !

CSD Day 2

Day 2:
I found out from my aunt that the cabbage soup diet is very similair to the sacred heart diet, the guidelines are the same but the soup recipe is just a little different. I almost blew the whole day when I saw Joe eating a cheeto, it looked so delicious. I stayed strong and ate more soup. I woke up this morning a whole hour before my alarm, which was strange and when I got to work I weighed myself and I weigh 2 lbs less than yesterday!

Today is soup and veggie day, I ate so much fruit yesterday my stomach hurt looking forward to some spinach and the baked potatoe with butter for dinner.

Cravings so far have been a roast beef sando from Beach Hut Deli, a piece of ham, hummus and a cheeto.

Here's the soup I added spinach to it today since it veggie day.

Going Batty, June Gloom & CSD Day 1

The part about being a homeowner that sucks is when something goes wrong there is no landlord to call. We heard something in our attic, we thought it was birds, then we thought it was rats, gross I know now after the nice guys at Delk Pest Control came to take a look, it's BATS! I'm not sure which is worse rats or bats either we are hoping they'll be gone soon.

 The weather here (nor-cal) has been terrible. Rainy, overcast, rainy and now hair is getting so frizzy that I have my co-worker french braid it daily. Normally it is so warm June 1 that I start sweating away my winter weight, you know those unwanted 10 lbs. left over from Christmas and Thanksgiving. Anways I was thinking of a way to kick start my fitness so yesterday after surfing the net I got a wild hair up my you know what, and purchased all of the ingredient for the cabbage soup diet.

Today, Day 1- Eat as much of the "soup" and all of the fruits you would like (excluding bananas). Drink only water and unsweetened tea...I GOT THIS!

Happy Wednesday!

Oh and I am still completely addicted to pinning!

Memorial Day & Weekend

This past weekend one of my besties moved in with us, we own a 4 bedroom home and figured WTH, the room is just sitting there, might as well take advantage of it before we start having babies. Saturday my MIL and I went to the bay area, where I got to pick out granite for not one but two of my bathrooms (My present from her for my 30th, she pretty much is the most awesome MIL anyone could hope for.) Visited her Aunt Muggs, who I adore and may be the funniest person I've met, we lunched at Big Joe's it was delish! Sunday we went to brunch at Nena's on the waterfront (Michilada & chorizo w/eggs, homemade flour tortillas, delish...again!) with Joe's aunt and uncle who were visiting from Colorado. I ended up spending the day with them and their son Jordan, he's my fav. It was sad to say goodbye, tear.

Memorial Day we decided to host a BBQ at the park, we wanted to keep it easy peasy, which we did. SOmething we may want to do yearly. It was so much fun. The weather was kinda eh, but we had fun none the less. I got some great news from a friend but I can't share for a few weeks. Hope you enjoyed your Memorial day weekend and remembered what it was really all about.

Front of our home

Here's a picture of the front of our house minus the garage. The yard needs a lot of work, and we have already done some of it.
