Yesterday I said goodbye to my dear friend I've had the last 5 years. She and her family packed up their moving truck yesterday and headed down to California. Her son is also my sons' best friend. I hope she doesn't mind that I post her picture here on our last "gals day" together, but I just wanted to share how beautiful she is INSIDE and OUT!! She has been there for me at some of my lowest moments and cheered with me at my highest ones too. I will really miss her SO much and hope she finds joy in her new adventure. :)
We have hit our 6 month anniversary on our lifestyle change using the "Take Shape For Life" program. Last week we EACH lost 1 pound. Yay, for a loss... but I am still aiming for more than that each week. I think I may have lost more if I didn't have those 3 diet soda's this week.
My Favorite Lean and green this week was a nice salad with Bolthouse honey mustard dressing, 3/4 cup cottage cheese, and our Costco Chicken patty covered with sauteed mushrooms. Oh... SO good! My kids are LOVING these Costco chicken patties (Sweet Caramelized Onion Chicken Burgers - Pic of them in one of my Feb. posts), they are in the refrigerated section and my kids eat them in a bun. When I am needing to make something quick, I pull those out.
So last friday, my man had a day off and we were fixing up our family bikes. Then we just decide to ride our bikes (without the kids) to the theater for an afternoon movie.
Back in the day, my man and I were big movie buffs and always used to go to the newest releases... even once going to 3 movies in one evening! (Okay, we were very young teens then). With movies having so much yucky stuff in them nowadays, we don't do that like we used to, but it was SO fun last Friday.
I am always wearing that top, I noticed too, since it is one of the only ones that fit me. I have a lot of my "tent shirts" and I wear them too, but they are huge on me. I can't wait until I can afford a real clothes shopping spree... but I've still got a lot I want to lose, so it's good to wait anyway. :)
I look at this pic and I see two older folks... yet inside, we are still those two crazy teens. At least now, we have hopefully learned a thing or two!!
