I did my elliptical for 20 min. tonight, and 20 min on Monday. I made a promise to myself that I'll do it for 20 min, 3 x's this week. After I've done that, I'll try for 30 min each time. If this helps get me lose more than 1 lb each week, I'm afraid that I'll have to keep doing it..hahaha.
I sort of gave myself a "free" day yesterday. I still kind of stayed on plan - my splurge was going out to dinner and having a cocktail AND ate the rolls/butter (they're SO good at this restaurant). Back to eating Jenny today!
Well my magic SlimQuick gummies didn't help me lose 3 x's the weight this week. Only down 1.2 lbs. I SO wanted to lose at least 2 so I'd be at 20 lbs total for the year...oh well...next week! (at least the gummies taste good!)
Down 4 lbs this week...that's 12.6 for the month so far! So funny - I lose 12 lbs and think "now I can wear this, and this", but of course I can't...I still have 30 to go! Nonetheless, it feels great to be on my way...
I messed up this week and gained 2oz. Might not seem like a lot, but I'm supposed to lose! Looking back tho, I've been mixing up my diets. Like I ate dry roasted p'nuts which were an ok protein on Yoli...but I'm not on Yoli! Talked to the Jenny consultant and I'm back on track. Bought Jicama, cauliflower and celery for snacks...AND got back on my elliptical for the first time in More...
WEEKEND WEIGH-IN! (vs. Wednesday)?!? Down 3.6 lbs today. Total of 8.8 since the 1st (of course that first week is always the best!). Starting to hit my stride, diet-wise, but know that I'm going to have to start the dreaded exercise soon! How's everyone else's new year going?
Remember me hoping that this year would be good (January, 2013 was when my "legal" mess started)...well, today I had to fire not one but two employees (one for policy violation, one for a sexual harassment issue). Then my other employees gave me grief about everything from not liking the schedule to having to attend staff meetings!!!! I hate this!!! It was supposed to be better! More...
A personal favorite is the beautifully hand crafted music box
A fun video from 2013, the story behind the music box with Clopin, Figaro and the even watch the Tangled Tower being put into the Fantasy Faire:
Of course, no trip to the Fantasy Faire would be complete without a visit to the Royal Hall. Loved this artist rendition, that's just how my girls are when they enter the Hall. ::sigh::
Took this next part directly from Disney Parks Blog:
“After walking into our main entrance, you will first go through a garden-like setting before entering the reception hall,” said Michel Den Dulk, Creative Director of Fantasy Faire for Walt Disney Imagineering. “Once inside the Royal Hall, guests will discover a beautiful gothic interior with nice wallpaper, wall cresting, wood finishes and chandeliers.”
Passing through a series of spaces, including the Grand Hall, you’ll have the opportunity to meet as many as three Disney princesses, from classic stories such as “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty.”
Dont forget to grab a sweet treat from Maurice's Treats! At the time, (isn't there more now?) the adorable cart featured 3 “Twists” and a new signature beverage: Boysen Apple Freeze.
In a tribute to the historic Carnation Plaza Gardens, a shield over the archway leading from Fantasy Faire to Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland displays the letters “CPG.”
