Hard at work decluttering, hair colour removal and more weight loss. As usually for a Friday I am sharing my weeks highs and lows for another Friday Favourites linky post with Maria and Lisa. If you missed last week’s post, you can read it here!
This week I have been hard at work decluttering. So far I’ve done the garage, the porch & part of the linen closet. I’ve filled up 2 skips and need to arrange for another one to continue. Sometimes the kids help me. Mostly they just get in the way. I have plans to do the spare room/office, the kids bedrooms and the hoard of toys. You have no idea what a relief I am feeling by getting rid of all the stuff we have “stored’ away “just-in-case.”
This one is probably a bit random for you readers but I am so proud of the progress Cuddles has made walking on his lead. Since he had never been on a lead before we got him it’s taken a while for him to work out what the lead means and how to walk on it. I spent the first week pretty much either carrying him or dragging him. But the last few days he’s started walking ahead excitedly and copying Jazz. Now I just need to train him to walk beside me rather than pull on the lead. But progress is progress.
The Weight Just Keeps On Dropping
Since I posted my weight loss update I am pleased to be able to tell you that the weight is still dropping. I am now down to 93 kg which puts me at a total of 12.5 kg loss. Between walking the dogs every morning and all the work I am doing in decluttering the house I’m getting a good workout! Oh, and even more exciting? Today I am wearing a pair of shorts that I haven’t been able to fit in since the early months of my pregnancy with Bella!
Just before Christmas my doctor upped my PND meds to two pills a day in preparation for the stress that having all the kids home for the school holidays, the uncertainty that Eugene’s work was putting us through, trying to deal with Danielle’s tantrums and emotional outbursts calmly and not screaming at her instead, etc. Yesterday, I had my month trial check in with my doctor to see how I’m going. The end result being I will be staying on the two pills a day until next Spring (September/October) and then start the weaning process.
Natural Hair Colour
Yesterday I did something that I consider rather brave and very frightening. I stripped the dye out of my hair using My Hair Dresser Permanent Colour Remover and returned it to it’s natural graying state. I’ve decided to stay my natural colour for a while. That’s the scary part. I’ve been dying my hair since I was 12. I have never been my natural colour for more than a day between colours in 21 years!
What have been your highs and lows of the week? I’d love to know!
