Exciting News!

Okay, I've been working on my "Anniversary Challenge" for a couple of weeks now. My Anniversary is next weekend and I'm sad to say that I'm not going to reach my goal. Instead of losing weight this week, I gained a couple of pounds. I'm not too upset about this though, the weight gain was completely warranted. I made a choice between taking care of myself, or taking care of some kittens that needed to find good homes this week. I'm proud to say that I've found homes for all of the kittens that we have been taking care of! 15 kittens to be exact! We've got three left, and they are rummaging around our spare bedroom as I type this. They go to their new homes this Thursday. I'm going to miss them, but I can't wait to get my time and spare bedroom back! They just started eating kitten chow this weekend, so bottle feeding is pretty much over with. That took up a lot of my time, and I feel like I'm ready to refocus on me and my weightloss!

Now, I've got some really exciting news to share. My husband and I bought each other an amazing anniversary gift! We are going on a cruise!! We've booked the cruise for October 27th-31st. This is only 45 days away and I still can't believe it's happening! Everything is booked, but it still hasn't really "hit" me that we are going! Despite my unbelief, I am going to start preparing for this cruise right now. I'm ditching the "Anniversary Challenge" and starting a bigger, better challenge. A challenge to motivate me to lose weight for our upcoming cruise!

This morning I weighed in at 240 lbs. My goal for the Cruise Challenge is to lose 10 pounds before I step on the ship. I want to be at 230 lbs for the first time in over 3 years by the time that we go on our anniversary vacation! The plan for this challenge isn't very different from my Anniversary Challenge.
