Holy cow...can't believe it's May already! Sorry I haven't posted very often lately. By the time I get home from work lately I don't even want to look at a computer since that is all I stare at for 9 hours a day, 5 days a week...blah! Not a whole lot going on here...been dealing with the rainy cold weather here...bring on the warmer weather! Today was actually very nice and sunny out, so we ran around most of the day. Slept in until 9:30, which is usually unheard of! Then we got up and printed off a list of local garage sales and took off around 10 and garage saled until 2:00. Didn't really find any good deals though...only walked away with a brand new big Yankee Candle in a jar that had never been used for $2, so at least I got something out of all those garage sales. Sad thing was...I got that at the first one we stopped at. After we were done with all that we were starving since we didn't eat breakfast and have been doing the South Beach Diet all week, which is no carbs or fruit. We were so hungry though, we broke down and hit the Olive Garden...I wanted that minestrone soup so bad and it has some pasta in it, but it was so good! Then I had mushroom ravioli...I didn't eat too bad...I was going nutty not having carbs of any kind, so I figured one day & one meal wasn't going to do too much damage. I think we walked lunch off anyways because afterwards we went to some furniture stores in search of a new couch since ours is busted. We found one we love, so we are waiting till Monday to see if we got approved financing on it...it was such a good deal we couldn't pass it up, so we had them write up the deal today, so we got there today only $100 deal if we get approved, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! After all of that, we managed to drag ourselves through 2 grocery stores...I was so happy I actually found sugar free hershey syrup....chocolate milk has been breakfast lately and it helps curb those sweet cravings on this diet! All in all, the diet hasn't been all that bad...at least I've dropped 7lbs since Monday...we'll see if the scale still shows the same loss after today. By the way, I was reading Mrs. Jelly Belly's blog today and she was talking about how awesome shampoo in the form of a bar was so I went ahead and ordered some from the site she listed because she also had a $5 off coupon listed for your first order, so I pulled up iherb.com and ordered the J.R. Liggett’s Old Fashioned Bar Shampoo. I got the one for damaged hair, natch, and the Tea Tree and Hemp Oil. $4.79 each, so I got it for free and only had to pay the $1.68 shipping and handling, so if you want to try it out or anything on there site here is the $5.00 off refferal coupon code for you to use...HUF525. Anyways, that was my day...hope you all have a great weekend! Later gators!
