6 Weeks In!

Well, it has been 6 weeks and I'm sad to say I haven't lost any weight this week. No weight gain either, which I suppose is good. I have been working out 3-4 nights a week and that may not sound like much, but I have been doing my Couch to 5k app religiously and also doing some exercises with weights. I do see some changes in my body, but nothing on the scale. Which my overall goal is to be healthy and look good. I wish I had some hard evidence, such as weight loss. I think I need to make a doctor's appointment and make sure everything is well..what it should be. My husband mentioned to me that my thyroid may be causing me not to be losing any weight. It just seems weird that I never exercised and I ate way more than I do now and I can't even lose a pound or 2. It's really frustrating. But I'm not going to let it get me down and stop me.

My 5K is 2.5 weeks away. I'm getting excited. I'm on Week 5 day 3 of my app and  hopefully I will make it pretty close to the end of the app before my race. But if I don't...that's fine too. I will complete it!

I know no one actually reads this, but someday when I reach my goal it will be nice to come back and read these.

Week 5 Weigh in

Well tax season is in full swing for me and I got a day behind! I weighed in and had a 1 lb weight loss for the week. I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I'm going to guess my eating habits.

V-day dress for Isabel!

I decided to make my daughter a dress. I thought since Valentine's day was coming up, I would make it themed. I found a cute free pattern on Pinterest and it took me to this blog here, here & here! It's the same blog, but it's in 3 different Sew-along parts. Check out her blog, for other cute stuff!

This was my first time to ever use a pattern and first time to ever sew a garment. I'm very happy with the outcome. This Junebug dress is adorable. The original pattern is for a 2/3T and I had to adjust it to make it a 18 month dress. I just cut off about a 1/4 of an inch to the original pieces. The neck came out a little wide. But still adorable.

Here are some pics from beginning to end. (I'll upload better pics later, maybe, if I remember too)
