I weighed in at 183.5 this morning.  Whoo Hooo!  Two pounds gone in the last week.  I still need to get more exercise but my ankles are giving me problems so I haven’t done much.  Unless you count scrubbing the tub.  My acrylic bathtub isn’t as shiny as it should be.  Somehow, it got kind of dull.  So I scrubbed yesterday.  You can’t use any kind of aerosol cleaner on acrylic.  In fact, there are several products you can’t use on them.  So…I scrubbed it with Joy dishwashing liquid, like I usually do.  Dull.   Then I scrubbed it with Tilex.  Dull.  I did some online research and tried white vinegar….windex….baking soda….Still looked kind of dull.  Several articles recommended KaBoom so I went and got some.  Clean but no pizzazz.  Finally, I broke down and used metal polish (which is also recommended) and got the shine!  At least on the part that shows when you’re standing in the bathroom.  Do you know how long it takes to polish a large soaker tub?  I’ll save the other half for another time.

Finished the bathroom scrubbing and moved to the kitchen.  Cleaned out the fridge and did a few dishes.  Went to my bedroom and did some serious laundry and wardrobe organizing.  I swear, it’s the most housecleaning I’ve done in ages.  I haven’t done much around here since last spring so it felt good to actually do a little heavy duty cleaning.

Got into a disagreement with DH over his hair.  What is it with men anyway?  I walked down the hall and saw him standing at the bathroom sink (the one I just scrubbed) using an old pair of clippers on his hair.  He didn’t have a clue what he was doing and it was all uneven and sticking out in all directions.  I ordered him to stop and he said he didn’t have the time or money to run around getting haircuts all the time.  Hello!!???  I’m lucky if I can get him to go get a cut every three months and he goes to Great Clips!  I told him I’d splurge and treat him to a haircut.  A couple hours later, he’s back in there hacking away at his hair again.  My God, he had a couple of spots in the back where it was almost to the scalp and parts of the top were half an inch long while others were two inches long.  I shrieked at him to STOP and he said he was trying to even it up but the clippers were dull.  He wanted me to do the back.  I tossed him a twenty and said “Go. Now.  Get a haircut.  See if they can straighten it up.”  He left for a haircut and I left for Kohls.  I came back a couple of hours later and he was standing in front of the bathroom mirror with a brand new pair of clippers.  I got mad and then he got mad and I told him I’m not going out in public with him unless he puts a paper bag over his head.  He said it saves money and I said, “You can get a cut at the beauty school for five bucks!”  He said he doesn’t have time to wait around for an hour at the beauty school and I gave up.  I didn’t talk to him much for the rest of the evening.  His hair looks like crap!  He actually said it was my fault because I wouldn’t do the back of his head for him.  Yeah, okay, you don’t want to go there…

Little sister called yesterday evening and told me she made it to our cabin in Florida.  She’s staying there for a week with her son and one of his friends.  They’re heading to St. Augustine for a couple of days in the middle of the week.  Wish I was there…

New day and I’m feeling good about the weight loss.  Sparkpeople still takes a lot of time but it’s helping me keep track of things and making me more aware of my diet.  Seems to be helping.  That and DS.  Although he did show up with Hershey Kisses yesterday.

One regular Hershey’s Kiss has 26 calories. It’s worth a little love!

And I’m giving you a FREAKIN’ AWESOME on the two pound loss!! (I lost less than 4 in the first 10 days of my Boot Camp, so I’m actually pretty jealous!)

Keep this up at 2 lbs a week and you’ll be to goal in no time!

Yay for Patty on the loss! You’re definitely moving in the right direction.

And don’t you just love men? Blaming you for his haircut b/c you wouldn’t cut the back 🙂
