Day 348: New Home Items, Chocolate Binge, Grrrr

I'm going to start thsi post by first thanking you for your photo comments from my last post! We like's to party... and i'm glad you guys are cool with that. I once was told by a "trainer" that "you can't lose weight if you drink." Um.... not realistic for me, homie. Anywho - thanks for your kind words! We do have fun with some great friends here in ATL! So.... I have some Home Updates. I'm SO excited!! The painter starts the 3-day job today. TODAY. I'm so excited! Here's there now!! And here's some stuff I purchased on Sunday - woo!

So these don't look AMAZING on here, but I heart them (and swear they look better in person!)! I bought four from crate & barrel - they're banana leaf mirrors. I plan to hang them in the dining room to make a large square! (they're each 16x16)




We got these at Frontgate (6 to put along the retaining wall in the backyard). NOT in this color though, in bronze (dark brown).




This is 26"x26" - for the entry way. Love it! (Z Gallerie)

I got the green pillow at Z Gallerie for the green guest room!



I got this for the seating area in the kitchen!! (online at Etsy - Joom's shop)



It was time... I began planning our wedding wall...



Then I had six 8"x6" photos printed and bought 6 frames at Crate and Barrel. I planned it on on the bed in the orange guest room!



Speaking of orange - I bought this for the chair in the scrapbook room! (Also from Etsy/Joom)!



That's all folks! I'll post pics once the items are in the house, in their new little homes. How exciting! (for me... sorry if you're bored to tears!)

K- enough of that! Yesterday was blah you guys. I didn't sleep well, felt like poo, got in bad traffic, etc. BUT I had yummy eats which is always fun. However, I didn't get in cardio. I had to go to a 2nd crate & barrel (by my office) for more mirrors and another frame so I skipped the lunch workout. Then after work I just had to go home. My tummy was upset. I had had a mini chocolate binge at a 3 - 4:30 meeting.... I had 2 reese's cups... 2 hershey kisses... 1 dove chocolate...2 mini snickers. Then, as if that wasn't enough.... they brought in an edible arrangement.... enter a chocolate covered straberry and a small chocolate covered banana. OMG - who am I?! What is wrong with me. DAMN YOU TOM! Sigh. I went home defeated and opened the mirrrors and one was broken. GRRRRRR. So I worked on the wedding wall (above) and focused on happy things (gathering pics from this post!). Then me and Austin had dinner and watched True Blood and Entourage. Yet again, True Blood ROCKED and Entourage was luke warm. Sigh. I need more Ari Gold!!
I ended the day at 1,900 calories, 199 carbs, 62 fat grams and 133 carbs. Grrr. Here’s what I ate. I know… what didn’t I eat?! Eek! And NO workouts. Shame I tell ya. And my weight was up. to 119, people. Uh-oh – time to hit the gym like crazy because this coming weekend I will have a house full of besties in town for a shower I’m hosting – uh-oh!!

I love all the home items - they are awesome! Can't wait to see more pics ones the items are in the house....

Chocolate binges happen... Today is a new day. :)

prettyface said...

Really? I thought True Blood was a little blah this week. :-( But still wonderful none the less!

I like those banana leaf mirrors! Very chic and cute!
And as far as your chocolate binge goes, I laughed out loud. It's just cute!

I wanna decorate!!!! I have so many things bookmarked online....I'm thinking of buying my first house soon, but I'm so confused. I have no money for a down payment but someone told me I could get mortgage insurance, but others tell me no, I have to have 3.5%. UGHH. It's a wee bit frustrating.

Krissa said...

Can you come decorate my home please? I love pink and roses. You can do whatever you want with the whole house as long as its kinda shabby chic. :)

I love all your new items.

I really dont think your "chocolate binge" was very bad. You were still kinda in control. Whenever I go off track, I lose count of how many "bites" I have had. So at least you were still able to add up your calories at the end of the day.

Weird question. Do you write everything down at work or do you just enter it online as you go?

Anne said...

TOM will do that to you. Don't worry about the weight, you will get rid of it in no time.

Love all your purchases! I also love Etsy. Just discovered it a few weeks ago. Awesome site!

Jacey said...

I am using all your tracking techniques and it's really helping get a clear picture of how much I really eat and drink. You are living proof that it is possible to drink and still lose weight (love that!).

I track all my weight loss / life stuff on my other blog. If you are interested in reading it, send me an email and I will invite you.

Love your home decor. Lookin' good! I wish you could come decorate my office AND take me clothes shopping!!

april said...

Don't worry! One tiny slip won't hurt :)

eurydice said...

oh i love to pAArty too hehe. it's not realistic for me not to drink either which accounts for a lot of my weekend calories. i think if i had a lot of weight to lose i think i would reconsider all of the drinking, but since i'm pretty much maintain (pretty much ...) let's booze it up ;)

i love those pillows. most of all though i'm jealous you have a big house for all those pillows to go in! lol.

Kelly Olexa said...

TTOM be damned!! Mine is next week. Watch out pantry LOL
;-) Keep it up girl, just balance out your chocolate with some hard work and good eats. You know..you'll rock it. ;-)
Keep on inspiring me and all of us.

Tomorrow is another day. Today was just one day out of 365 this year and in a few days the binge will be old news ;)

Thinspired said...

Ahh, this reminds me that I really need to get with it with my wedding photos. I have ONE really poor-quality one on display, and I have been meaning to get some properly printed for a wall collage! Yours looks great, as does the rest of the purchases. The pillows are so unique.

redhead75 said...

You are in the right mindset now so I have no doubt you will drop a few lbs. We all have an occasional "binge" on something so don't fret!

The Fit Collegiate said...

Love all the new home items! Too cute!!

Hey, don't get hung up about the chocolate binge. Remember, tomorrow is a new day. Just pick yourself back up, don't restrict, and carry on like nothing happened! :-)

Jenna said...

Pam said...

I would love to weigh 119 again - it will happen. Don't be so hard on yourself.

I am loving the mirrors, picture and pillows. I also love the wedding photos collage. I have something similar with my wedding and honeymoon pictures up above our bed.

Erica said...

Can you please come decorate my house? Seriously...I am so decorating challenged its not even funny. You do a fabulous job. Love all of the items and the pictures look incredible. That trainer who told you about drinking needs to check himself! Everything in moderation!

SLJ said...

First I love all of your purchases, especially the frames from crate and barrel. And second, don't beat yourself up over the eat and nt working out. Remember, we all have bad days and one bad day does not undo all of the good ones! Your just brave enough to put it out there for all of us to see!
