Hello Blogland!!! How is everyone doing this lovely first week of February??? Since it is the Season of LOOOOOVVVEEE I’m going to be posting some vintage really strange Valentine’s Cards.
First up: nothing says ROMANCE like lunch meat!!!!
Just a little update on the Tamera gets Healthier Project. I’ve been essentially Gluten-free Vegan since January 1st. It’s going really well. Not to say I’ll never eat dairy or meat or wheat again but so far I’ve had no interest in it. I’ve been scouring my Moosewood cookbooks and got some vegetarian/vegan slow-cooker ones. Tonite we had a tasty vegan Chickpea/Potato/GreenBean Curry. I made the hubster a porkchop for his meat needs. He liked the curry-so far he’s pretty much liked everything but the grilled polenta. I’ve even got him drinking green smoothies. He just doesn’t want to know what the green is (kale).
I weighed myself today and I’m down SEVENTEEN!!!!! pounds since January 1st. That makes a total of 54 lbs since October of 2011. Awesomecakes!!! I really not focusing on a number-I just want to feel better. My energy level is up a bit and my base pain level is down a bit so something must be working right.
I wore one of my button-down blouses Monday and even with belting it-it’s now too big. I’ve had it since BEFORE I lost weight (in fact I have 4 in diff colors) and I can’t really alter it to make it fit. Went through the closet and pretty much all of my button downs are now just too big so out they went.
I have deemed February Skirt and Frock Month. I am going to wear a different skirt or frock every day this month. As i continue to drop the lard and my pants get too big I’m going to wear skirt. Adjusting an elastic waist is fairly easy!!
Here’s Monday’s Outfit. Everytime I moved the blouse would poof all up:
Sweater-CJBanks/thrifted, Skirt-JessicaLondon/thrifted, Blouse-Dressbarn/retail, Boots-Kmart/retail, Scarf-vintage, Belt-thrifted
And here’s today’s outfit. I LOVE my JJill $1 skirt–so swirly!!! I was going to wear a black cardigan but decided why not wear the teal??:
Skirt-JJill/thrifted, Cardigan-thrifted, Top-thrifted, Boots-retail
I’ve been making lists and plans on redecorating the rest of the house more like the hall bath. Mostly it will involve painting stuff. I’ll have to wait for warmer weather for spray painting!! It will give me more time to plot!!!
Well–it’s Tuesday nite and that means time for Mark Harmon!!! I’m now totally a TV Boyfriend Bigamist as I’ve added Keith Urban to my harem!!
