What a day!
My project for these next three days is to redo Raquels room for her. About 2 months before school ended, we decided she'd do better off in a room of her own. So, with a heavy heart, I gave her the guest/sewing/craft/storage room. It was going to be a trial period, and now we decided she can keep it. I'll need to look for some storage solutions now, but we think this is better for her, for now.
So this afternoon I removed everything from her room, got the painter started, and ran off with the curtains to get some custom paint mixed.
So Luis (my husbands right hand guy 2 days a week) will come in tomorrow again to finish painting the walls. I'll probably do the trim, around the windows and such and I'd really like to do something special, maybe stencil her name on the wall??? Any ideas?
On the food front... I'm learning! I went over my calories (1800) on sunday, but stayed below on all the other days. But what I've seen is that most of my calories are between meals. I usually just put my food in and made sure the bottom line was less than 1800, but I never really looked to see where my calories were consumed.
So, now that I see that, I'll need to watch what and how much I'm snacking on, maybe I can reduce the total calories a little more right there.
Last night I went to my exercise class again, no steps but a good workout. I really like that she does abdominal exercises everytime. Sounds wierd, but those are probably my favorite exercises in gym class.
Today, since I was working up a sweat in Raquels room most of the afternoon, my back really aches (I have two herniated discs and a crooked tailbone), so I just did some stretching exercises.
