I'm so excited...and I just can't hide it

I'm about to lose control and I think I like it...Stick out tongue

Ok so Mondays are not usually my favorite day of the week but I have to say with all the aches and pains in my body, I've been a happy camper this morning. DH and I have really been trying to finish the house downstairs and let me tell you, I came close to losing my mind. Poor DH was working long and hard all weekend to try and finish up everything. I painted the bathroom wall, after the tiles where layed down, grouted and dry. We set the granite down to the vanity and installed it once again. Plumbing complete and today just need to hang the mirror.

The kitchen was completed last Thursday but continued cleaning it with water and vinegar to get all the excess grout marks off. DH installed the new sink, faucet and garbage disposal yesterday. I have to say the kitchen looks amazing. Now all we need to do is paint this week and install the under mount lighting. Finally all this will be done before my father comes into town. Goal almost complete.

To put the icing on the cake, I had to weigh in today and I'm so happy to know my success is continuing. I'm even more motivated now to exceed my 20 pound mark before heading to PR. I've always been happy in my own skin but I have to admit that this is the best gift I could ever have given myself. Thanks for letting me share my joy ladies. Beer Cheers! To a happy Monday ladies.

  • Thanks Mel, the weight loss has been a huge challenge but I'm not giving into any temptation what so ever. With no kitchen to cook in for 2 weeks, you can only imagine my struggle everyday for dinner. I was grilling up a storm in the back. Chicken, turkey burgers, you name it. Need to fit into the cute bathing suit for our cruise in December also. Just curious, are you still trying the WW plan or no? lol You don't have to answer if you choose not to.
  • That's GREAT Jessi!  I'm raising my protein shake to you!  You'll definitely surpass your goal before PR and I know that's a good thing, cause there are tons of yummy things to eat over there!  Mofongo anyone?  Mmm-mmm!

    Looking forward to seeing the completed home pics!  Estan acabando ustedes!
