I am a wee bit spoiled…

I have been feeling really down lately for reasons I don’t care to share…but let’s just say I am in a bit of a funk.  It’s mostly all in my head, but it’s there nonetheless.

So…on Valentine’s Day…I got a bit spoiled by my family.  I am usually a really bah humbug kind of person when it comes to Valentine’s Day, I don’t like the holiday, the commercialism of it, how it makes people who are unattached feel insignificant, etc.   I got home from work and the house was cheesily (is that a word?) decorated with streamers and balloons and there were roses, a cute stuffed elephant (I love elephants), and a gift.  All the kids made me awesome cards.  We made dinner for the kids and the grups ate Swiss Chalet.  It was really, really, nice.

They succeeded in cheering me up, which was their goal…I am still a bit down, but not as bad as I was on Sunday.

Here’s our weekly menu:

Sunday ~ Cranberry Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes, cauliflower and broccoli

Monday ~ Peameal Bacon on a Bun and  cole slaw (Swiss Chalet for the grups)

Tuesday ~ Chicken Chili and Cornmeal Muffins

Wednesday ~ Slow Cooker Steak and Potato Soup, bread

Thursday ~ Chicken, Rice, Vegetables

Friday ~ Meri’s Birthday dinner ~ Lasagna, Caesar Salad and Birthday Cake **

**Meri’s birthday is actually February 17th…however, it’s easier to celebrate it on a Friday, so that’s what we’re going to do.  She’s 2, she won’t know the difference! 

Good news on the weigh-in front too!  I lost another 1.8 lbs this week.  Brings my total up to 14.4 pounds since December 27th.  I am on track for 15 lbs by my birthday (March 6th) probably sooner…oh yeah!!!

  1. You are doing so well with WW. So proud of you!

  2. Judi,
    I totally understand the funk part of life, however, I think it is wonderful that you have such a great family that is there to support you and help you feel better. You have so much more than many others have and I hope that reading this will help you with your funk. Also, you do not need to be “attached” to someone to be a whole person.

  3. Yay! You’re almost there!! Less than half a pound to go!!

    Awwh. It’s Meri’s birthday… They grow up so fast! 🙂

  4. Sounds like a great day!! 🙂 Valentines’ day is highly over-rated.. and I *am* attached. lol! AND it’s my birthday! haha! I still think people make too much of a big deal about it!

    Congrat’s on the weight loss!! I’m proud of you!! 🙂 Keep it up!
