Weekend Recap in Pictures (Mostly)

First of all, I'll start with the weigh-in: 310.4. This is up half a pound from last week. Quite frankly, I'm relieved that it wasn't more than that. In the past, the thing that's really driven my weight loss has been exercise. Even at my heaviest, I've always enjoyed how I feel after a really good workout. Now that my back and pelvis are hurting so much, I'm really struggling.

Being in pain and not being able to do the things I want to do is taking its toll. So - I actually followed through with one of the things I mentioned on Thursday. I set an alarm and went through some physical therapy exercises this morning. This has become my new mission. As much as I want to make running my mission, I have to get things working again. I had a couple weekends of wallowing and eating junk, but it's time to move on. I am nothing if not stubborn (just ask Cody) and determined.
**Other people use their blogs to give themselves pep talks, right?

Right, so - the weekend:
 This group had a starring role in all of my weekend activities. They make my heart happy.

I managed to get the living room/dining room cleaned, swept, and vacuumed.

 I can't say that too much decluttering happened, but I got things to the point that if someone stops by unexpectedly I won't have a panic attack.

My family teases me because I always like to put everything at an angle. Things just feel more open that way. Maybe I'm secretly a feng shui master.
Then there was this project:
I decided to crochet a couple of iPod touch cases for my niece's birthday. Things started off a bit dodgy. There was one that had to be scrapped completely, and I ended up throwing out the pattern to wing it, but it was super-fun. It make me want to crochet cases with googly eyes for all of my belongings. 

Have you ever tried to take a selfie with a baby? It goes something like this:

 I got up early enough to actually blow dry my hair, put on makeup and pick out grown up clothes. When little man finally started to stir, I picked him up and paused by the mirror to look at his face and he had the biggest smile. I thought "this would be a great picture." Yup, I tried the mirror thing, but that didn't go well, so I thought I'd give it the old arms-length try. These were the best ones.
And, of course, my day was off to a great start because I got a new pair of seasonal socks. Yay!


Happy Monday, all! I hope you have the equivalent to seasonal socks to brighten your day.

What oddball things (like seasonal socks) make you happy?
