Tuesday weigh in - 190.8

Well, I am down today to 190.8. I usually do lose weight when I sit on my butt and am unable to exercise. It drives me crazy. I hate not doing anything. Rib has been feeling a little better with the rest, regular motrin, heating pad and sombra cream. Had a long day at the range on Sunday teaching the pistol course. Woke up early that morning so I went out in the hot tub for a little while and saw my first hummingbird of the season. YAY! That's a sure sign of spring for us, though last year we did have snow falling one day when the hummers were at the feeders. Got my feeders out today and have heard a few trills. It makes me soooooo happy.

Yesterday I got my kit. I am now an Independent Chocolatier for Dove Chocolate at Home. I made my first batch of dark chocolate last night, sent it with hubby to work so he can pass out samples and get people interested. Plan to make milk chocolate for the kids today. Soooo much fun. We have a chocolate martini mix that is so incredibly yummy, and it's certainly addictive. We got vanilla vodka to mix with it. My hubby loves it, too. He wants to do the Chocolate Tasting Parties with me.

And if you fear for my health with this venture, check out this blog entry about the health benefits of dark chocolate. WOOT! ;-)

Thanks for sytopping by my blog and the tips on the scanner. I'll keep working at it (I'm a tad technically challenged!)

BTW ~ my son-in-law was homeschooled and is the greatest guy you could meet - yay for homeschooling!

Dove Chocolate is one of my favorites. My first thought was I could never lose weight doing that. Sounds like alot of fun. Congrats on your loss.

That's great that you are feeling better and have your own little chocolate factory happening right in your own home!! Hooray for the loss!! Feel good!

Hurray on the loss!

I don't fear chocolate, I love it soooo much. I just try to portion it out. Of course, there have been days where I have a binge and regret it. Oh well, it happens. But I refuse to deny myself foods I love.

Have fun with the chocolate making!

Great job. Chocolatier, how neat!!! It's nice to meet you. We're planning on homeschooling too. I'm getting excited even though we still have another year before "formal" education starts. It's amazing to watch how much they are learning.

Thank you for the positive cheers.

it sucks doesnt it, when you have to have both exercise and healthy eating!?! I know how it is because I know if I eat healthy, its not enough, I need that exercise too. but dont worry, you will be back down in the 80s. mm I love dove!
