a waterbottle is now tied to my hand and i'm trying to drink at least 4 bottles a day, plus at least 8 ounces of skim milk. maybe this will help me lose those last 7 lbs of baby weight that.just.don't. go.away! the first 25 lbs were so easy, and then the next 7-8 came off after a few more months, but the last few, grrr. blame it on the milk-engorged breasts. or the fact that i gained 40 lbs while i was pregnant, but oh well. i'm at 137 and what is that magic formula? 100lbs + 5lbs for each inch over 5 ft. tall, so since i'm 5'7" i should be 100+(5*7)=135. 2lbs can definitely be blamed on the milk.
in other news, james and i got a new rug today!!! i have been looking for a new rug for a couple of months, and lowe's had this 8x11 rug on sale for $105! here is a quick pic from our upstairs nook (please ignore the fact that i did not stage the room at all as evidenced by the exersaucer among other things):i was kind of impressed by lowe's selection of rugs--i would've never thought to shop there. love yall! hope everyone is having a great week.
