Getting Back on Track

Today has been a wonderful day for me.  I woke up energized, motivated to start back on eating healthy, and working out.  I always drink green tea, so I had one cup this morning, worked out, drank my water, and ate breakfast.  I feel very well.  I will be eating a healthy lunch, and dinner.  Thinking of having a grilled chicken salad for lunch...yumo!  I am motivated to conquer the day today.  I am also motivated to lose more weight.

Why wait until Thanksgiving to be thankful... I will be posting a Thanksgiving quote daily. - "Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life." - Northrup Christiane

Flower Arrangements I was working on for a QuinceaƱera...

These are the flower arrangements I made for a QuinceaƱera, which will be November 14, 2009.

These are the supplies, plus some arrangements I had previously made.  I had to work with 3 different types and color of vases.

This is the finished product.  I made 54 floral arrangements.  Not all are on this picture.

Baby Shower favors, gifts, and corsage I was working on...

These are some pictures of the favors, gifts, and corsage I made for Victoria's Baby Shower.

These are personalized Candy Wrappers I made for the Baby Shower and they were given out as favors.

I only made the cookies on this picture...I was supposed to decorate them, but I was not feeling very well and didn't get to finish them...I was very dissapointed.

This is the Baby Shower corsage I made for the mom to be.


Here again the mom to be with her corsage.

Ruby won on one of the games which was the Prize Is Right and she got close to the correct amount. The gifts were put in a tiny diaper holder. It was so cute!

This is the basket I made for my sister's gift to the mom to be. Victoria is my sister's BFF, and she wanted to give her a special gift. So she bought all sorts of goodies, such as clothes, toys, and her breast pump.

Gained 9 pounds...I feel bad about it...but not quiting!

I weighed myself today...and I knew I was not going to like what I saw. I am weighing 197 pounds. I have been baking cupcakes, cookies, and being busy attending parties, and with craft projects; I haven't been eating healthy. I haven't had time to exercise, and haven't had time to eat on my regular schedule. Well, I will start back on track tomorrow...I will not give up. Those 9 pounds won't make me quit.
