Happy Halloween. I feel like I was handed a “trick” today at Weight Watchers. I couldn’t wait for today to come so I could weigh in. I was pretty sure I had hit my 10 pound mark. My scale at home (both of them) showed a two pound loss. Unfortunately for me, the scale at WW only showed a .2lb loss. Yes, there is a period in front of that 2. Hoping next week I’ll see an added bonus from this week’s loss that didn’t show up.
This morning I enjoyed my daily green smoothie.
It always feels so good to start the day off with a good portion of fruit and vegetables.
For lunch, I enjoyed some leftover soup from the last couple of days.
Soup warms my soul. Vermont has been chilly and today it rained so soup, with a bit of a Chipotle spice kick to it, hit the spot.
I tried out a new recipe for supper tonight. Lentils, apples and sausage salad. Delicious. I’ll be posting the recipe later.
My good news for the week: I had my A1C tested last week and the results was great. My number went down to 6.1 (from 7.3). I still remain in the pre-diabetic range though, hopefully it’ll improve more in the next three months.
Here’s the damage done to my arm. Two tries to draw blood and the nurse gave up and went to get another nurse. The second nurse hit a vein in my other hand right away. One time when I went to the ER in intense pain, it took them 13 tries to get an IV in me. Thanks mom and dad for providing me with small, hard to get to veins.
This weekend, I am so excited. My sisters and a friend are coming over to my house and we’re stamping Christmas Cards. It’s been so long since I’ve taken out my stamping things. Hopefully I’ll get 40 cards made.
I did start listening to Christmas music this week.
Do you still send Christmas cards?
