Weigh In Wednesday

I lost 1.4 lbs. this week! WHOOPPEEE!!! I'm sure this is a short lived celebration because about 20 mins. ago I had this.
That's a piece of turtle cheesecake. My boss took us to Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro for lunch. He was out of town for Administrative Professionals Day. I'm sure this was something like 5000 calories but it was so worth it! I have a bit of a headache which generally only happens when I eat cake with almond flavoring. I use to think I was allergic to butter cream icing because every time I ate it I got a headache but then I discovered it's only when the cake has almond flavoring. Anywho, I have a headache but that's ok too. The cheesecake was that good.

My workouts so far this week have been completing C25K Sunday, Yoglates Monday & Tuesday & a 31 minute run this morning. For those of you not living in my part of the world, summer is here. When I walked out the door this morning at 5:00 a.m. it was 70 degrees & ridiculous humidity. It was soooooo hot! The last couple of days at Yoglates it's been 91. It's going to be a long summer.

Yesterday, I finally pulled the trigger & ordered cabinet knobs & pulls. Who knew it was so hard to make a decision. Now, if I had an endless supply of money it would've been easier, a little. First off there are too many choices & too many places to buy all of these choices. The internet is a great thing but you know it was easier to make decisions when you only had a couple of stores to choose from. I'd found some that I really liked a couple of weeks ago only to find out that the knobs were sold out & wouldn't be back in stock until June. I was going to wait. Well, every time I looked at them I wasn't quite sure if they were what I wanted. Not to mention they were like $5.00 a knob & when you need 45 that adds up. Finally, I found some on Overstock that I could buy in packs of 10 & they were cheaper & I really liked them. I ordered them before I could change my mind.

I also decided on a paint color for the cabinets. I had a bunch of paint sample card thingys & Dean got more Sunday. We'd narrowed it down to 2 & then I made the final decision. Then I started looking again. Then I got confused. Then Dean & I chose again. He doesn't care but I always need a second opinion. Of course I never know if he's giving me an honest opinion or just telling me what I want to hear. We kept coming back to the same 2 colors so that's a good thing. I finally decided on Valspar's Churchill Hotel Ecru. I threw all the sample cards away because I don't want to be tempted to look at them again. Sooo, if anyone needs me this weekend, I'll be painting.....
