A small wrap-up

So I've been bad about posting this week and I honestly have no excuse. I'm not taking any classes right now and I've just been doing stuff around the house, re-organizing my pantry for the next diet phase and a few other things.
  • The no carb phase of the diet really wasn't that horrible. I learned how to cook some new foods and I even bought a new veggie steamer and tried some foods I might not have otherwise. I'm not sure why I thought I hated broccoli and cauliflower, but now I love them!
  • I've lost around 8lbs, the low end of what you can loose in the first two weeks. I had a hard time working out the first week because I had zero energy for anything. I felt hungry all the time and it was hard to workout with my stomach growling.
  • I did a lot of canning - I have 20 or so pints of applesauce and 10 quarts of tomatoes. Next year I'll have my own canning equipment so I can do more at home and I got the famous Ball Blue Book on Canning so I can learn how to do more things. I'm so thankful for Andrew's mom teaching me how to can!
  • I got fabric to make curtains for my kitchen! I want to do cafe curtains and I'm hoping this can be a project my mom and I can do, since she has been complaining that we don't spend enough time together.
  • I have about 10 weeks of college left, give or take - I finally have my graduation application turned in after a few set backs and I go back to school on the 13th!
Hope that everyone has a great Labor Day weekend!!!

Some weeks it's easier to post. Great work on giving up carbs! Kudos because I've tried and it just wasn't worth it for me.
