House Update!

From Jamie at Newmar, our very own Andy McCarthy:

"I just wanted to give you your weekly update. The developer is currently working on getting the roads finished for us. They are saying they will be finished with the roads on the 29th of August.
This means we can have your material dropped once we get back. You guys are in the first set of five homes to get started once we get back. So we should be framing your house the first week in September.
I would say you guys will be closing in November sometime currently. Please let me know if you have any questions. "

Oh, pleasepleasepleaseplease, happy day, please!

A girl in my WW meeting today was like, "hold out for the trees." She's a landscape architect. She said, "otherwise you'll be calling me in a few months and have a heart attack when I tell you how much it will cost to put in trees, even little trees." And she's so right. Must hold on. Must think of money I am saving. Ca-ching, ca-ching.

Speaking of things I must do, I must eat some protein! Last night's dinner was pasta and vegetables and I was starving by the time bedtime came. I ate some sort of Zone bar that I thought was a Kashi bar because it had been shoved into the Kashi box. I came down in the dark, grabbed a bar, took it back upstairs, took a bite and was like, "hmm, this is much better than I remembered." Then I turned on the light and realized that it was not what I thought it was. And it had about 5 grams more of fat than what I had planned to eat. Sigh. Sometimes it sucks not to be in your own house. Then today for lunch I had pasta salad at Anna's (which was yummy), but it also lacked protein. Think I'll be eating some peanut butter for my snack today!

Speaking of fat, I lost another 1.2 pounds. I also had a "lifetime goal" conference with Jamie, my WW leader. (Huh, isn't that weird, our salesperson at Independence is a male Jamie and my WW leader is a female Jamie. Probably the two most important areas of my life lately are headed by Jamies). Chick Jamie said that I should set my goal about 5 pounds higher than I had originally planned to because it would be very difficult to maintain the lower weight. She said I would thank her later and that I could totally lose the 5 pounds more on my own if I wanted. The lower weight is the absolutely lowest healthy BMI for me, so she's probably right. I was a bit disappointed, but on the plus side, it means that I only have 11.6 pounds more to go! I've already lost 18.6, so this should be a piece of cake, right?

18.6?!? Holy toledo, that's impressive!

Good news about the house. Hopefully the rain will hold off.
