Week 25 Monday (6/30/14)

Week 25         MONDAY

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Strawberry Sparkle Cake
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         This week I continue to bring you recipes I have not made from Ree’s blog. This is an interesting cake that made me want to experiment. I have an allergy to strawberries, but I like the idea of this cake, so once again I may be attempting this cake but with a variation of the innards.  I like that word – I have no idea why.  It would be pretty on the Fourth of July but I would add some blueberries and strawberries on the top or maybe a little flag.

Random Reflections - Bucket List

         I have begun my search for a town in Kentucky to relocate to when I retire. I began by looking through every town to see if it fit the basic requirements. Now, that I have finished this step, the next one is to look deeper into the towns that I thought had a great possibility, and research a whole list of important aspects that I require.  This is really fun!

Why Weight?

         6/23                  Monday                 1,764         calories       Curves
         6/24                  Tuesday                   840         calories       Curves        
         6/25                  Wednesday            2,534         calories       not able to drive

         6/27                  Friday                    1,568         calories       Curves
         6/28                  Saturday                  ???         calories         nothing

Goal:          88.3 lbs.          (100 lb. loss between 6/1/14 – 6/1/15)
                  +2.8 lbs.         this week’s loss
                   91.1lbs to go

         The low calorie count on Tuesday was the prep for my colonoscopy. It messed up Wednesday because I was eating everything in sight. Thursday and Friday were great, but Saturday I ate out for all three meals so I have no calorie count. I think some of the gain in water weight – at least I hope it is. Hopefully next week will be a whole lot better. I hate going backwards.

Wants and Wishes

         I am enjoying every minute of being home this summer. I love getting up early, and going to Curves, to begin my day. I love spending time on this blog and cooking new fabulous recipes. I am thrilled to spend so much time with Willow and Sage. I love organizing my house. I love working on school work, so my last year flows smoothly and is the best ever. I want it to go on forever, and it will eventually, but for now I will enjoy every minute I have, here at home.
