Won A Blog Prize!!!

Yippee and thank you Kelly at I Have a Notion. I have won an autographed copy of Pat Sloan's Quilt the Seasons, Book 2. I am sooo excited. Isn't that a gorgeous quilt on the cover or what?
I realized that I didn't give an exercise/weight loss report yesterday. I meant to but got carried away with other things. Looks as if I've lost NINE pounds. I never dreamed that I would have exercised for six weeks and have not lost ten pounds yet. Sigh. But that's the way it is. I need to take a photo of my exercise outfit. You'll laugh. But waiting in the wings. Waiting for that "official" ten pound loss, I have a reward. I've purchased another outfit. Getting rid of those XL men's shorts and XL t-shirt. The new outfit is ONLY a large.

I have ditched the treadmill for the elliptical. Groan! Back in the dark ages when implements of torture were kept in the dungeon. Masks with spikes. The rack. Shudder. If you'd been there back then, between those two devices of horror was the horror of horrors. Yes. You guessed it. An elliptical exercise machine. Bwahahaha.

I have accomplished the miracle of miracles. Yes. I have worked up from 30 seconds to --- drum roll please --- FIFTEEN MINUTES.

Oh. How sweet. Y'all did the wave for me. Bless your little hearts.

You go girl!!! I'm proud of you for the nine lbs. It's better than nothing. And getting into small clothes is always the best! Here's to another great week for you.

9 Lbs is incredible what are you talking you know that that is 36 sticks of butter? I understand the joy of working your way up from 30 seconds to 15 is incredible. Keep up the self care as it will continue to pay dividends even after you stop thinking about the weightloss. Don't ask me how I know all of this....LOL.

Enjoy your book :)
