What's Up Wednesday


, What’s Up Wednesday {12.18.19}

Today I am joining in on What's up Wednesday...create your post and link up with  Shay and  Sheaffer.

What I'm eating this week?

I found this amazing smoked salmon at Costco this week. One package is $15 and has three pieces of salmon in it! Once I got it home; I was even more excited to learn that it was already cooked so I only needed to heat it up in the microwave for 90- seconds! Talk about a quick and delicious salad topper!!! YUM!

You can tell I do not have a family as I eat the same things over and over and over! HA!

What I'm reminiscing about
Aruba!!!! I did not go this year and I am so sorry about that! I love Aruba and I think I will need to travel there at least once a year from now on...


 
What I'm loving
My Starbucks January mug I got for Christmas from my sister!!! It is free refills on regular coffee or tea once a day for the whole month of January!!! This has saved me so much money already this year! LOVE THIS!  Thank you Kerry!!!




What I've been up to…
Mostly work, work, work but I snuck in a weekend away to Florida. I attended a Women's Conference there and it was completely uplifting and I feel sooo recharged!




What I'm working on...
Finally serious about losing this weight I have gained. I have gained so much and am headed in the right direction finally by doing barre class twice every morning before work. I get up at 4:30 AM and do class at 5:30 and 6:30. I am down 8 pounds since the beginning of the month so I am super happy!




What I'm excited about…
I will be heading back to Florida to hang out with my parents for a week or so when they head down for a month in March. I am so happy they take this time to get our of the cold and have fun in Florida. Super excited to golf when I am down there!

What I'm watching/reading…
 I love This is Us, Manifest, and A Million Little Things. Currently not reading anything. 


What I'm listening to...
anything that comes up on my iPod

What I'm wearing…
This jacket I got at Walmart! What a steal for $21...it is super cute and so warm!



What I'm doing this weekend…
As of now, nothing!!! YAY me! I will chilling with myself and may watch a little of the Superbowl but not making it a priority! I will be rooting for the Chiefs as I spent a little time there working last year and my Steelers are out. :-(

What I'm looking forward to next month? 
One month closer to Summer???

What else is new?
Nothing else at all. Basically working and waiting until we hear that our jobs are over. It is coming but we are not exactly sure when...Fun Fun Fun!

  3. Way to go on the weight loss. I need to lose 20 pounds. I didn't gain any weight over the holidays though. Didn't eat any sweets and we didn't go to any parties.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

  11. Well you are doing the weight loss the right way. That diet should do it all by itself. I need to look for smoked salmon. Love salmon and smoked fish so it should be a winner. I have a coat a lot like that one and it is warm.

  15. I am so happy for you on your weight loss journey. It is a tough road to go down, but way to go. I like working out when I am done, but during it, it sucks. Ha. That Starbucks mug is an amazing deal and I really need to do that next time. I am sooo looking forward to a Niners win! But I just hope it is a good game either way.

    1. Hi Robin! It is a bag of greens from Costco...it has Baby kale, beet tops and spinach...it is really yummy and packed with nutrition! I always find it at Costco. The smoked salmon is a game changer for a quick salad!!! So much easier than getting out the Foreman grill and having to clean it!! Have a great day - HUGS
