This and That

Happy Friday message on chalkboard

It’s Friday! I’m happy to say in the last week and a half I have lost 5 pounds!  I have a long way to go still, but I love how fast weight comes off in the first week of a diet because it motivates me to keep going.  I don’t believe in complete deprivation while on diet though so this weekend we may walk over to the Oktoberfest for a beer and pretzel.  The other excitement for the weekend is watching the Dodgers hopefully win the first two games of the playoffs.

Here are some of my favorite things from this week.

1. Another raccoon…this one shows a raccoon that was saved by a family in the Bahamas and likes to play with the family’s dogs.  Apparently rabies doesn’t exist in the Bahamas so it’s ok to have a raccoon as a pet?

2. Asparagus, egg and bacon salad recipe I want to try.

3. A statement coat I have my eye on.

4. Income required to be in the top 10% in different cities.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Love that your are posting again! I haven’t been great about keeping in touch so I love to hear about your life, journeys and struggles. I think that with each birthday keeping off the weight is an uphill struggle. I find my best inspiration is putting on a swim suit….ugh! Now that your are in sunny CA, you should head to the beach and get inspired!

    • Great to hear from you Allison! I agree that a bathing suit gets me inspired. It’s been over a year since my last beach vacation…and right after that is when I started gaining weight again.

  2. Congrats on losing 5 pounds! I am trying to do that too. It’s tough, but so worth it! Have a great weekend :)

  3. That recipe looks amaze! Congrats on everything & I’m headed to LA style Oktoberfest too in my neighborhood:)
