Day 199 & 200: New Weight, New Chairs, Free Concert Tickets, Moving Schedule and More – yay!

Friday

  • I had 1,680 calories, 205 carbs and 40 fat grams.
  • I got in 3.5 miles at lunch and 2 miles + abs + legs – my workout felt GREAT – first time I got in strength training this week and it was awesome!
  • Work was crazy like CRAZY. I got a lot done but it was draining.
  • I made enchiladas for dinner – still amazing!
  • My printer (awesome vendor; I’m their client) called me with an offer for free tickets to upcoming concerts at Chastain Park! She gave me a laundry list of options and me and Austin chose the Bad Company/Doobie Brothers concert on Friday night at Chastain park in June – woot!
  • I made our detailed, to-the-day, to-do list for moving. It’s jam-packed, but we feel better being on target and ready to go!
  • We watched a few Heroes – we’re on Season 3 now… so good.
  • Here’s what I ate.

Saturday

We got up, had breakfast and had the most successful day. Oh – and I weighted 113!! Austin weighed 169. This is crazy you guys – that’s 23 down for me and 36 down for Austin – 59 pounds! Yesssss first time ever for both of us. And I measured – here is the updated chart (pretty much the same). And I changed my ticker – wanted something different!! Here’s what we did today (so far – it’s only 4 p.m.):

  • Used our $75 West Elm coupon for two chairs. They retailed for $300 and $200. They were on sale for $120 and $80 (only ones in the store). We told the guy we'd take them both if he'd do $150. He said sure and we got them both for $87 after our coupon - YAY! $44 a chair!
  • Visited Ikea and made a list of things we love and things we thought we loved but don’t like in person.
  • Bought 4 Euro Pillows at Target; found two lamps I want…
  • Scheduled the movers for April 11.
  • Scheduled the pool table movers for April 9.
  • Checked our dryer plug - it's 4-prong - YES! (the one at the house is 4-prong so we don't need an adaptor)
  • Went banking to prepare for buying our house! And ordered new checks.
  • Contacted our apartment complex to see if we need to paint the walls back (they keep thinking they did them but I want it in writing: either we need to paint them or we don't).

New chairs!



That's it for now - off to start packing thanks to my sister for letting me borrow boxes! (Yes, my sister is so organized that she has packing boxes on hand – love it!) Hope you guys are having amazing weekends!!

I totally need to echo everyone else: your organizational skills are astounding. I especially love your Monthly Assessments; they've inspired me to set monthly goals of my own. Thanks so much for always updating :) I love reading your blog!

Crabby McSlacker said...

Wow, you're so organized! And what a great, positive report on so many aspects of your life. Some people (I won't name names) might find themselves overwhelmed and Crabby rather than motivated and energetic with all that going on!

Very inspirational!
