Recap of the week:

This past week was good; I reached a total of 35 pounds lost! I was a little surprised since I only went for two walks and didn't go to the gym as scheduled. Regardless, I lost weight! I am still going to stay away from the gym for today and tomorrow; I have been so drained with my MS related fatigue that I don't want to push myself too far.

This weekend, I picked up the heels pumps that the bride picked for the bridesmaids to wear in her wedding. They are really pretty, and really high! I am a little nervous about the height but I plan on bringing back-up flats for the big day.

(Sorry for the blurry i-Phone photo)
This week, I am hoping that I stay within my carbohydrate range according to Sparkpeople. I decided to prepare mostly vegetarian dinners this week, which means that I will be eating more carbs than I usually do. I am going to eat chicken on saturday and fish on Wednesday. I don't think that I will ever go full vegetarian, but it was fun to search for new recipes to use this week.
