A small loss

So a bit of good news.

Yesterday I did my P90X2 yoga. I am starting to love that video. I could tell I was still sore from the last time I did it.

Then last night K and I went for over a 2 mile walk. I was chatting with her about my down in the dumps reasons for life right now. I will probably be sharing with you soon what is going on...I even have my post written. It is just hard for me to push the publish button and expose our little secrets to the world.  Some of which you guys already know, some of which you dont.

This morning I had a half pound loss. I will take it for not doing major cardio. Down to 175.0. Today is P90X core and tonight is walking with K again. It feels good to walk and talk with her and just let things go. I have to trust that everything happens for a reason. This is just a really shitty spot I am in right now literally not knowing what spring is going to bring. And knowing there isnt much that I can plan for at the moment.

Anyways... I have been starting on a new project.

K's parents gave me 5 chairs for our kitchen island that need to get redone.

Here is what they looked like before.

I added two coats of primer and I got two coats of paint on one of the chairs.

Here is what it looks like now.

I still have to do the cushions for them and will do those tomorrow night at K's house at her UFO party.
One step at a time.

Then we have to go easy on them for about a month until they totally cure (according to the dude at Lowe's). I felt like telling him good luck with that with two little kids. LOL.

And I got my last painting done. It is currently hanging in our bedroom above our bed.

As you can see, I am trying to keep myself busy and not think about things too much. I need to trust that they are going to work themselves out.

Thats it for today folks. Have a great Tuesday!

Tip of the Day:



  1. How are you able to paint all the crevices on the chair?

    I don't know what you're going through but, hang in there. You are a fighter. And whatever it is, you are going to make it through.

    1. I use a big brush to get everywhere. LOL.

      Thanks for the vote of confidence. I know I can get thru it because in the long term it isnt that HUGE of an issue. Doesnt make it hurt any less knowing what is probably going to happen.

  2. You are so crafty! I love the color you chose.

    I love P90X yoga and I'm actually going to do half of it this morning before some elliptical work and yard work.

    Hope you have a great week!

    1. Thanks so much! I love the P90X2 yoga because it is more fluid with its moves and is only an hour versus an hour and a half.

  3. I love the chairs and I hope you are able to come to terms quickly with whatever is going on and that you are able to take it in stride, just like the tornado.

    1. Thanks so much. I am trying very hard to take things in stride.
