Friday Weigh-In

I'm here in the kitchen making curried carrot soup for tomorrow's supper. I was up super early today because I'm working the morning shift this weekend and needed to adjust my schedule. Cooking in advance is the best! I'll come home tired from work and there will be gorgeous, creamy homemade soup waiting for me. The delectable white bean chili that we had for Wednesday night's supper will also do double duty on Sunday evening. I'm happy just thinking about it!

I'm down another pound this week, 87 pounds gone, 190 pounds, Yay! That's just 40 pounds to go before I hit my goal weight of 150 pounds. I can barely wrap my head around the fact that I've already lost more than twice that. It's been a good week. I met my goals of eating well and getting lots of exercise. I'm heading to the gym in an hour for my 5th day of cardio. I also got in 2 days of strength training.

Got to run and get the soup finished. Have a fantastic Friday and a safe and healthy weekend!
