Flowers and Kate Spade

flowers Kate Spade Idiom BraceletsOver the weekend I was at Trader Joe’s. I swear they have the best flowers! I decided to buy some because, well, I can. I felt guilty and ridiculous. Then I just did it anyway. Is it weird that I feel guilty buying flowers?

But, back to the fluffy, glittery side, look how cute they are in this yellow striped vase!

In other news of how I am spoiled, I now have three of the Kate Spade idiom bracelets that I have been lusting after. They all have cute phrases (idioms?) inside them. I got the ivory for my birthday, a friend sent the pink just because she loves me, and I stalked eBay until I found the striped one from last year. I just got it today! I love it ❤

I really want all of the bracelets, which I think is becoming a problem. Does anyone know where I can find the yellow one? I think it’s from last year.

Weigh In Wednesday- Where is My Motivation?

Riley FlowersI weighed in at 1.4 pounds less than last week. This is actually a good amount to lose, and it’s my first loss since week one. I’m down 4.2 since I started January 1, but I feel defeated. I’m not doing particularly badly, and my habits have been good overall (good compared to the past, anyway). I am happy about the loss and encouraged by it, but I still feel like I’m doing a bad job.

The problem is I’ve kind of stopped caring. I mentioned last week that I might need a cleanse. I don’t really want to do that, but for some reason they really tend to jump start me.

My husband sent me these flowers yesterday “just because”. He said that he knew I had a long day and wanted to cheer me up. He picked these because my dogs are white. Isn’t the arrangement so cute? I guess my point is, there are good things going on. Life can only get better if I focus more on my health. I’ve been putting stuff off so that I can spend more time with my puppy. That’s kind of an “excuse”, kind of a “reason”. Puppies do take a lot of work, but I know I need to strategize.

DakotaIn other puppy news, I met this little darling on Sunday. His name is Dakota and he belongs to my little niece. He’s a 10 week old Siberian Husky. So precious, I could not put him down.

Today’s goal is to put work outs and meal planning in my calendar. Once it’s in the calendar, I have to do it, right?! I also brought three green smoothies with me to drink during my work day. Wish me luck…
