I officially started my diet this weekend. I always start out slow. Just let myself get ready for when I'm truly serious about losing weight. I just made sure to stay under 1500 calories the last two days. Going back to my last year diet plan. Main meal is going to be dinner. Eat whatever, but smaller portions, no butter, not much cheese. Breakfast is still a few 10 or under pretzel nuggets with Peanut butter. Lunch will be raw veggies or low cal air popcorn, just for some crunch. I'm also going to not weight myself but take body measurements. Doing lots of cardio exercise, skiing, etc. adding in weights to tone up. I'm all in now.. and I Feb, March, April and May plenty of time to drop at least 20 pounds.

We made little progress to show on the flooring project going on in our 4 season porch. Steve fixed the floor level issue, but that took a few hours. We decided against getting another layer of floor sheets to build up the flooring to the same height. He just added some new wood and took out some hardwood flooring that was built up too high in the entrance of the porch. This fixed our floor heigh issue. Since that took all day, no actual new floor was installed. So, I'm hoping today is the day that real progress on the floor is made.

I had purchased a pineapple and Steve came up with this for dinner. Made with my fried rice, Stop top grilled Chicken, with peppers, onion and pineapple in a ginger sauce. Delicious, a success!
My favorite TV show on Netflix right now is The Great British Baking Show. Makes me hungry for bread, cookies (biscuits), and cakes (sponges). I'm learning British lingo! As they would say "Cheers!"
Thursday we cleared out our 4 season porch. Realized the TV in the whole house didn't work unless we had our main TV hooked up and working. So we had to put it back in the room and will work around the TV. We did move out of all the furniture, books etc and now my house is full of stuff everywhere! It's the worst part of making something better, the mess!
The old carpet sure was nasty! Stained from the kids spilling coffee and a worn path where everyone walked between the couch and ottoman. Yuck! No more carpet in my house! This is the last of the carpet as we got rid of the rest upstairs years ago and put in hardwood maple floors. Steve now has second thoughts about putting this luxury vinyl over the top of our old oak hardwood and cherry flooring. He said we should have just ripped it out and started with new real wood floor. I just think that's too big of a project and too costly. We are able to do our entire main level for around $3200
