Day 18-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary-DOWN ANOTHER POUND!!

Woke up another pound gone… I have never, ever NOT gained weight during the holiday season! I.LOVE.THIS.PROGRAM.

I will be 53 in February and I am SO happy in my own skin now, thanks to L’BRI.
I marvel over how I am able to eat so much and so often and still drop weight.
Yes, I use the rebounder and fitbit… no, I haven’t yet done my yoga nor weights- I still have to add those in, but enjoying the peace and quiet of the holiday season.

DAY 17- the day after Xmas Aftermath

What happens at Xmas stays at Xmas, but I didn’t successfully keep to plan. I ended up sick as a result and today is the day of reckoning and relaxation and self-forgiveness.

I have to be gentle with myself and move forward positively.

Spent the day enjoying the aftermath of the holiday and just chilling with fam. Maisie sang the Sorting Hat song from the Harry Potter audiobooks.

My house currently looks like Harry Potter threw up in it. The kiddo is OBSESSED. I am doing a surprise redecorating of her bedroom. Bought almost everything on here today (from Pottery Barn’s site).

Her bedroom is not as big as this in the little house, so we will do what we can… At my other house, this would be doable, but it’s currently being used as an office by family members staying there and working remotely. I like this little house so much. It’s so cozy.

Tonight’s lean and green consisted of sous vide grass-fed sirloin, veggies, and eggplant rollatini leftovers from Xmas eve at R’s parents.

IG Updates While I’m Stuck In Bed As Cleaning Lady Cleans and People Wrap Gifts

Maisie and I have been banished to my rooms until the gifts are wrapped and the cleaning lady finishes her thing (ie, saving my life).

My Xmas Menu consists of 2 Prime Ribs, a honey ham (I don’t eat ham, but the rest do), and other yummy things I need to start cooking.

(Yes, I am Jewish. No, not everyone else is. We celebrate ALL holidays. If we’ve missed one that may be particularly fun, leave a comment below and we’ll celebrate that as well- a party is a party, y’all)

So, here are the highlights:

My Menorah (it’s a Hanukkiah, people, but Americans always call the Hanukkah one that) and our kickass Xmas tree- obviously right at the end of Hanukkah:

More pics of Desmond, the MINI Cooper Convertible, or what my father likes to call my ‘mid-life crisis’-  We made this killer car seat pad from “British Fashionista” fabric to protect leather and I scotchguard-ed it.

He got a unicorn “cutie mark” (as Maisie calls it)

and other ridiculousness… I am restoring this baby MYSELF (yes, I am eclectic like that) and I also have a love of silly things.

Plus- VOILA! Changed out the faded boot emblem

Finally, my nail lady, whom we adore, bought Maisie a giant unicorn (to go with her smaller one). Maisie named it “Sweetheart”
