Time to update

It's definitely been a while since I've blogged, and there has been quite a bit going on.  Here are some updates:

South Beach - I made it through Phase 1 (barely) and am now working with Phase 2.  There have definitely been some not so good food choices, but overall I'm still down (weight-wise) from where I started.  I still need to work on eating more veggies, but I'm definitely eating more fruit and less bread/rice than I used to.

Friends - there has been some fairly serious parties going on lately.  There was a birthday bash w/ dinner at Umi Sake house and karaoke at Ozzie's and a baby shower - with the baby due in just a couple weeks!  And there have been many a little get together here and there, mainly at The Jones.

House - something major has been happening with our house.  We finally put in (fake) hardwood floors!  My dad and my hubbie's dad and brother came over and helped us install things and man was it a pain in the ars.  Unfortunately we couldn't do the stairs as the stairnosing is on backorder, but at least the ugly blue carpet is gone.

I'm sure there are other things I'm forgetting, but that will have to wait for a different post.  Today I will be busy celebrating my husband's birthday and trying to regain feeling in my mouth after having cavities filled at the dentist this morning (bluh).

South Beach - Day Four

Okay, I'm not gonna lie - this is hard.  I hadn't realized I was so dependent on carbs until I started this diet.  I do know it's working though, because already I've lost about 3 lbs.  But the meals are quite different than I (or the hubs) am used to.  I am comforted by the fact that I only have a little over a week to go with Phase 1.  I think the meal planning is what's hardest - I really have to plan out what I'm going to eat ahead of time.

On a separate note, I'm really glad it's almost the weekend - for some reason this week has felt really long.  I've got a lot of fun things planned.  Tomorrow night I'm going to see My Fair Lady the musical with some of the knotties, then one of the knotties has a baby shower Saturday afternoon, and a different knottie is having a karaoke birthday celebration Saturday night.  Fun times!
