I had another good week at my weigh-in….I am down another 2 pounds.  That makes a total of 8 in the first 3 weeks including the first week which wasn’t really official but I have changed my mind about counting it.  I figure I did the work…..I am taking the credit!!  I still have a long way to go though.  Here’s hoping I don’t hit that first awful plateau this week.

My goal is about 70 pounds….that just sounds impossible right now so I am trying to focus on smaller goals along the way so it feels more manageable.  My first goal is 10 pounds and when I get there I am getting a pedicure.  I hope it is next week….I need one pretty bad!!

Once again my pedometer goal was a total bust.  I forgot it most of the time still and when I did wear it I don’t think it was very accurate.  Maybe it was where I had it on my belt, but I know I walked WAY more than 3,000 steps on Monday when I was getting everything ready for the first day of school.  Oh well….if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.

Being back at school has been sort of nice…not that I wouldn’t rather it still be vacation!!  It is just nice to get back into a routine, getting up every morning and getting myself together instead of walking around looking homeless like I did most of the summer.  I think that makes The Hubs happier too, although he would never admit it because he is too darn nice.  I also seem to have a really nice group of kids this year which is such a relief.  It is amazing what a difference that makes.

Here is what I wore to school for the first day.  I am generally pretty casual for school but with it being the first day I figured I should at least put on a dress even if I did still wear my flip flops!!  I found this dress the night before at Target….I love Target and all of its wonderful fashion deals.  It is on clearance at their website for only $9.98…I am pretty sure I paid $19.99 for it at the store which was still a great deal.  It is available in a few different colors online and there are lots of sizes still left.  I am resisting the urge to buy another one.  #multiplesqueen

The sweater is one I have had for a couple of years.  It is an Old Navy boyfriend sweater.  The exact one I am wearing is no longer available, but there are some very similar to it on their website for $29.94.  The belt is also an old one from Old Navy and the necklace is the same tassel necklace you have seen me wear before from Glamour Farms.  The shoes are from Marshall’s earlier this summer and they were a steal for only $12.  With 2 days of school under my belt now I am feeling pretty worn out so this girl is going to bed early tonight!!

Have a Great One All!

Patty  🙂
