Weight Loss Wednesday

Oh yes, my friends. This weekly feature is back! I feel like I took the month of July off. My waistline felt it, too. But now I'm back. This past week I have lost my vacation weight (a little over 2 pounds) and I am back on track. August is our celebration month at our house. We started with Patch's birthday yesterday, today is our anniversary, next Monday is Curly's birthday, and next Tuesday is my birthday. Then we go back to school, which is always a celebration! I have a new rule for myself this month, and I'm sticking to it through October. It's that I will not eat things that are made from a box. This is not difficult when it comes to a main meal. For example, I don't like mac-n-cheese from a box. Treats are another thing, though. Brownies from a box are pretty darn good. But brownies from scratch are better. So I'm going to save my treat allowances for the really good stuff.

Curly has a special anniversary surprise planned for tonight. I'll tell you about it tomorrow. I know what it is (he fessed up when I was trying to nail down a time with the sitter) and I'll share tomorrow. He's a special guy, that Curly.

Ok, I am laughing because I am an idiot... when I read about you not eating anything made from a box, all I thought was, who the heck would eat anything made from cardboard.... k, a little tired=)
