Happy June!

I made this in under the wire - it's still June 1, barely!

This week has been insane!  Last weekend, we had the roofs (rooves?) re-done on both the house & garage. Then the guys showed up a day early to install the new gutters - while I was trying to get the fascia (what the gutters attach to) painted!  I had to paint so fast that my arms felt dead afterward. But they finished just in time for a nice rainstorm to hit. I mean, they had just put their ladder in the truck, closed it and got in the cab and WHOOSH!  But the gutters work very nicely.  It had been raining most of the week and the rain pouring off the valley of the roof onto our window unit air conditioner was LOUD.

So everything is put back together & I got all the little pieces of plastic & chunks of wood & stray nails all cleaned up (I hope!!) from my flower beds and the yard and mowed the yard today.  I feel settled now!

So how did I do in May?  Can we hear a resounding MEH?

1.  rededicate myself to WW - Looking at my weight record, I didn't weigh in on May 1, I honestly don't remember if I stayed for the meeting on the 8th. The 16th & 22nd I just dropped in real quick to get on the scale but I did stay for the meeting on the 29th.

2.  post eTools progress report weekly - I haven't really been doing this weekly {shame}, but here's my monthly summaries...
 98% of my goal achieved on my Activelink
A total gain of 1.2 lbs this month - Booooooo!

3.  earn at least 15 WW activity points weekly - check!!

4.  use my waist & arm / thigh trimmers while doing DVDs or Wii Fit - haven't done any at all.

5.  plan meals weekly - check!

6.  eat more / new veggies every week - for the most part, check!

7.  be a better blogger - I needed a little break after the A-Z Challenge so I slacked off again. {shame}

8.  spend at least 15 minutes per day straightening up my house - this is hit or miss. Somedays I'm little Miss Suzie Homemaker and others I am definitely not.

9.  make time for ME!!  for exercise & meetings - this has again been slacking.

10. find plans & designs for holiday displays (tomato cage trees / MGC fence / potion book) - I've pinned a few ideas and I've gotten some of my future potion bottles emptied of mystery liquids and cleaned out. I do believe I have an idea of how to fence in my weirdly shaped front yard - thanks to my Mom, of all people!

11. work on RACES certification - Big fat ZERO. Haven't touched it at all.


13.  wean myself off pop - didn't happen!

Rebecca’s May Challenge - being the Inspiration. I don't know how much of an inspiration I was to anyone, but I was truly touched my the Mother's Day post Miss Angela put on Facebook.

I'm leaving all my mini-challenges the same. This month's challenge is to note one thing every day that I am thankful for. This should be an easy one!

  1. I'm not doing as well as I should be on these same things {diet/exercise} as I was earlier in the year. I've got to get back on the wagon!


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
