Monthly Weigh-In: June 1st

I hope you had a fantastic weekend! It's June 1st, another month has come and gone but it was a lovely month of May. Weighing in after a holiday weekend is often scary but it really wasn't bad at all, I'm at 177 pounds, so just one half pound north my low of 176.5.

I just popped out to the Kennesaw farmers market they have on Tuesday mornings. It's small but there was a nice variety. I picked up some English peas to shell, patty pan squash and some squash blossoms. I think a fresh pea and mint salad sounds delicious. I still have my turnip greens to cook up. Did you know that storing greens wrapped in damp paper towels in a paper bag keeps them fresh and crisp? I wish I could remember where I heard that tip, but it really works. I checked the greens this morning expecting them to be wilted and horrible but they are as lovely and fresh as the day I bought them. I'll be cooking them tomorrow for a cookbook contest on another blog. I'll post the link to that when it's ready.

What are your goals for June? I'd like to break 175 this month, so clean eating, lots of water and plenty of walking. I'm starting Stage 5 of New Rules tomorrow and want to tackle a walk up the mountain at the very least once per week through the month of June. I picked up lots of shifts again this month, so that should keep me out of trouble, too.

I'll have some garden updates as things fill in some more. I think my tomatoes have rebounded so that's good news. I have some cherry tomatoes reddening up, I can't wait to taste them. Have a great week and I'll be back with you soon!


  1. You really inspire me. I am starting at 277 lbs and wish to drop 100 lbs in one year. If I could only get to where you are at now I would be so proud! Youre awesome! And you were beautiful before, so you must be a knock out now!

  2. Thanks Miss Felicity! Be proud of yourself each day and you'll get there.

  3. Hi Andra. Great post - your story is motivating and you look terrific! For june, my goal is to stay away from processed sugar, which is my kryptonite. I'm loading up on fresh fruits, unsweetened carob chips and maple syrup for my morning cereal to help. wish me luck!

  4. No real goals, yet...I'm going back to St. Louis for business for a week with weekends on either side. I hope to signup and complete a 5K and a 10K...I've run the distances for fun, but have never participated in any events just yet.
