Out with the Old!

AND in with the new!!!

First things first, I didn't report on my progress from last Wednesday.  I lost a pound!  Technically, I guess I lost 8 pounds as I lost the 7 I had gained the week before then 1 more.  I am now down 53 pounds!

I'm late posting because the hubby and I have been busy, busy, busy. 
  • Wednesday night, I went to the movies with my good friend, Joe Morgan, while Philip worked on the tables he's building for us.  
  • Thursday night, Shirley and I went to a fun Premier Jewelry party where I ordered an ADORABLE corral set that is going to look amazing with my corral jacket that now fits!
  • Friday night for our exciting date night, we went to Home Depot!  (Woo Hoo.)  We recently ordered some new furniture for our bedroom which wasn't supposed to be in until the beginning or middle of May.  Well, surprise, surprise, it is in early and is being delivered Tuesday.  That means we had to get our butts in gear to get the bedroom ready; thus Home Depot for paint and supplies.
  • Saturday was all about cleaning and painting.  We did take a break to have lunch with our good friends James, Theresa, and Paul to celebrate James' birthday.  (Amy was bad . . . very bad . . . )
  • Sunday was more cleaning and finishing the painting.
Not all of the cleaning was a chore.  I was able to do one of my favorite things - get rid of stuff!!!  I decided there was no reason to pack up the sweaters and blouses for next winter.  They're too big now, so they will DEFINITELY be too big next winter!  Pile after pile of sweaters and blouses went into boxes for either a garage sale, consignment, or donations.
In all the cleaning out, I found 3 bins of smaller sized clothes.  I call that motivation!  One of the bins had dress pants in it that I can actually wear now!  I'm so excited!  Actually, I'm a little overwhelmed as I have more slacks than hangers!

It is really exciting to get the old out to make room for the new!  New clothes!  New Amy!

WOW!!! This is awesome! Your getting to be a skinny mini! And what a work out you two are getting while getting everything ready for your new furniture. I hope you'll be getting better sleep now!

By this coming winter we should both have to buy a whole new wardrobe! Of course now I know it has to match my jewelery purchases! LOL

Great job Amy! Keep up the good work. I'll be back to working out next week after my "vacation". Keep us posted on how you are liking the new line up of workouts at the gym. :0)
