The Official 40

So I have finally made/past the 40 lbs mark. I lost a total of 1.6lbs this week. Not a lot but it's still a loss, and it put's me at a total loss of 40.8 lbs since February 1st. Not too bad!!!

Now that I reached the 40 pound mark you know what that means right! BRA & PANTY PIC!!!!!!

283, 263, 243.....I'm loosing my boobs, this is a sad day

If you noticed in a earlier blog, I am participating in the June Boom . My updates on what I am doing are posted in a section marked "June Boom" in the upper right hand column of my blog. I seem to be motivated enough to work out every day, but it's hard. I am used to going for my walk/jogs every other day. I made a commitment though to do at least 30 minutes of activity a day, those are the rules.

There are a lot of activities going down in my home town this weekend. There is the LaSalle Strawberry Fest, which is a carnival with rides, food, live music & booze. There is the 1st Annual BeaverFest (great name, totally perverted) this is where local and famous bands get together to play music at our new amphitheatre downtown by the river. There is also Art in the Park, which I attended today with my husband, son and BFF Jay. This is where vendors from all over get together in a huge park we call Willistead, and they try to sell their art, crafts, metalwork, and food. Here are some pics from the day...

I did purchase some wonderful gourmet dip seasoning packages at Debi Does Dips. These are amazing and I buy them every year. You can also order them online as they do ship. $20 for 7 packs. I recommend the Roasted Garlic & Cheddar it's unreal. You just mix mayo & sour cream with the seasoning packs and can even make this healthy by substituting greek yogurt instead! I'm serious check her out, you won't be sorry!
* I don't know Debi personally, and I am not getting reimbursed by this endorsement. I just love her Dips!*

Today we also got our cabinet renovations done, our extension for the wine fridge to go in & the island. Now we are just waiting on the granite. Hopefully that comes in later this week. Here is a pic from before & after the extra cabinets were put in. We also added a ceiling fan and pot lights.

What a busy weekend, and this was just Saturday. I work tomorrow so I won't be doing much of anything except for my "minimum" 30 minutes of activity for June Boom.

Until next week, have a great weekend everyone! Here is to getting my granite installed, continuing with the June Boom challenge, and ordering my sunglasses because I reached my 40 pound goal!!!
