Queen of Crazy

Ok so first I must start off by saying congrats to the happy couple, the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge. What a lovely ceremony, and her dress...OMG....she looked stunning. I even donned a tiara at 8 in the morning for the special event.....

Don't Judge, this is a 8am in the bathroom shot....

Now that the wedding is over, I don't want to hear about it anymore.....I mean at all.....lol

This week my hubby has been busy doing little things around the house to make me happy. So first off you all know that I'm doing renovations to the kitchen. Well we have decided to remove the ceiling light and replace it with a ceiling fan and some pot lights. The fan went in easy enough, but the pot lights are another story. They are going in tomorrow.....hopefully. Can't wait for the granite too!!!


We also finally picked the faucet for the kitchen. It is brushed stainless just like our appliances....love it!!!



Another thing he did for me was put up a bar with hooks in our walk in closet. I have been bitching lately that all my necklaces are getting tangled because I just toss them into the drawer in my nightstand. Well he sure fixed that for me.....Can't wait to hang up all my stuff!


He also color coordinated his side of the closet since he donated a bunch of clothes.....I took a pic because I have never seen this before, and I thought it was hilarious.....any bets on how long it's gonna stay like this??????


So today was the end of the running shoe poll, and the winner is PURPLE!!!!!!....only by 2 votes...it was so close....hopefully I will have a pic of my feet in them for you by next week. My husband went to Tim Horton's this morning and came home and surprised me with my runners.......here's a pic!



Now on to the weigh in........*drum rolls and trumpets playing in the background, fireworks going off in the distance*

This week I have met my 1st goal of 250lbs!!!!!!!!!!

.....with one day to spare......I have lost a total 3.4 lbs this week & I have lost a total of 11.66% of my body weight.


Obviously I have to make another goal now so I'm going to go with 225lbs. by August 1st. I think that's totally in line with my 10lbs a month. Can't wait till I get to 40lbs lost...Ray Ban's here I come!!!

Came across a video today that was really inspiring and I wanted to share it........hopefully this will help me to get to 225lbs and beyond......


Here's my stats for the week:

Current Weight: 250lbs (-33lbs)

Chest: 44" (5")
Waist: 40" (5")
Hips: 53" (3.5")
Left Bicep: 16" (1.5")
Right Bicep: 15 1/2" (1.5")
Left Thigh: 31" (3.5")
Right Thigh: 31" (3.5")

That makes my total inches lost this week: 2"

Grand Total: 23 1/2"
*grand total for each in parenthesis*

Until next week, here's to getting my new kicks finally, starting on my next goal, and looking forward to warmer weather!!!

Also please don't forget I am doing a 5K walk on June 12th for JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundations, please sponsor me, so far I have raised $220.....http://jdrfca.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&eventID=1041&participantID=92700

  1. That is AWESOME to reach 250!! I always love those 50-lbs marks, because it means you get to go down a notch on the doctor's scale. Do you know what I mean?? They can set the large one on 200 instead of 250 :)
    That's a great idea for the necklaces. I never wear jewelry simply because my jewelry box is a mess!
