Day 69 - Happy Saturday!

Part of my plan to stay on track is to check into my blog daily. This blog keeps me honest and accountable. Even if it's a short post, I know I do better when I am posting and reading daily.

Breakfast this morning was a smoothie made with chocolate protein powder, 1 c. frozen strawberries, 1 tbs. flax oil, and 1 tbs. almond butter. So yummy, so filling. I did an hour on the elliptical this morning, along with about 15 minutes of weights on my arms. I came home and had some leftover taco salad for lunch (ground turkey, shredded lettuce, reduced-fat cheese shreds, and salsa). Then I decided to paint my bathroom!

I bought the paint the other day - it was a can that had been tinted the wrong color. It caught my eye because the color is the exact same color stripe that runs through my favorite bathroom set that I used at the other house. It's a light aqua color paint, and the stripes in the shower curtain and accessories is this same color aqua, chocolate brown, taupe, and eggshell. I love the aqua color with chocolate brown... that's actually what my living room is done in, too.

I just got the first coat and trim done, so I'm gonna let it dry for a while then do a second coat. It really brightens up the bathroom. The old paint was pea green - ugh - and has always reminded me of baby sh*t. We've lived here since February, and I haven't decorated this bathroom at all because my bathroom set didn't match at all. And I didn't want to buy a new one because I really liked the old one. So now, I get a little more exercise in while making my home a little bit better!


  1. Daily posting is a good way to keep the heat on, at least for me.

  2. I love how paint can totally change things. :) Have a great weekend and i agree daily posts really does help. :)

  3. I was told I should start a blog to stay on track and and after reading what you posted I decided I would do it since you have results and you still say you should do daily posts to stay on track. So thank you for helping me decide.

  4. Good post.

    There are many teas that can effectively assist weight loss, and I think it's great you are bringing people's attention to them.

    I know that a few brands of tea really helped me to lose my added pounds.

    all the best!


  5. I think it's great you are getting right back on track and painting! Both changes are good. Posting and blogging does help keep you on track, especially if you know people are reading! I lost a bunch of weight (150 lbs) and just walking around town knowing people are watching me helped keep it off!
