Weekly Weigh In

I still am having a hard time grasping that this is DECEMBER 1ST?! HOLY MOLY! And ya'll know this is a crazy month with Christmas parties, Christmas shopping, wrapping, decorating, baking, sewing (yes!)...and in the midst of it all I want to LOSE MORE WEIGHT and get back to exercising CONSISTENTLY!!! I'm serious about it too!!!

So backing up....today was that dreadful day. I hated to step on that scale today...but I HAD to. It's the rules! I'm up 2.8lbs (169.2). Under 3lbs after a crazy 4 day weekend with a holiday....I'll take it. Not happy about it (or with me), but I knew what the outcome would be if I ate like I did and was so sedentary!!

Moving on....that's all I can do!!!! Today is day 2, and I even got a workout in yesterday....wasn't the gym, but it still definitely counts! I hit it up with the hottie Bob from the BL and did the Cardio Max. I'm embarrassed that I only did the beginner level, but know by the end of the month I'll be doing BETTER!!!!

So this is the last 3 weeks of the GAG challenge. Can't believe it has gone by this quickly! WOWOW! So for the last 3 weeks I want to get back to exercising, and REALLY want to get under 165. That will be short from my original goal...but I'll take it with a smile.

Goal time!

What I accomplished last week:
  • Journal and be a Good WW - 1 day, yesterday!
  • Enjoy Thanksgiving (Free day) and make sure I talk about what I'm thankful for - wooohoo! Got this one!
  • Exercise 3 days, even if it's walking!! - 1 day, thanks to yesterday
  • Continue 30 days of Affirmations - 0 days
  • December monthly menu plan - YES!
  • Get DESK clean! - Uh...still working on!
  • Have fun Black Friday shopping with Mom!! - The best time...and got LOADS of great deals!

What I want to accomplish this week:

  • Journal and BE a good WW (especially on the weekend!)
  • Exercise 3 days
  • Get desk clean
  • Get 1 purse finished (sewing)
  • Daily vitamin
  • Make a new recipe

And for fun...here is the turkey cake my husband and I made for Thanksgiving! It is a annual tradition to do a different Thanksgiving cake to take to my family gathering. SOOO fun!!!

OMG! The cutest and freakiest cake I think I've ever seen. :) What in the world is the stuffing made of? Is it cake chunks or something else? You are too clever. :)

Haha!!! When I first saw the cake online I thought it was GROSS to even think about. But, my Hunney loved the idea of it! Now it's grown on me :)

The "stuffing" is exactly that, made out of leftover cake pieces. The round part is 2 yellow cakes, and the legs were chocolate cake (it called for spice cake, but I don't like spice cake...hm....I should've made it out of spice cake maybe!).
