The Biggest Loser contest I joined 12 weeks ago is now over. I didn't win, but I finished in the top 20. Considering there were 103 contestants, I'm thrilled with that. I didn't make my goal of 24 pounds, but I came super close. I lost 21 pounds. I cheated more than a few times and skipped exercising WAY more than I should have, so 21 pounds is amazing to me! I went from *gulp* 205 pounds to 184 pounds. I'm going to get back on the weight loss wagon right after Easter. We always have a huge meal Easter Day and I'm looking forward to that.
I spent the weekend making a bunch of Egg Heads for Pi's class. Originally, she'd asked that I not make anything this year, but changed her mind when she saw the first Egg Head I made. I made 12 of them. The green chicks are for the boys and the white and pink bunnies are for the girls. I know the colors are a bit funky, but I used what stash felt I had, instead of going out and buying more.
Pi was very specific about who got what and labeled them each with her classmates' names.
Today was Palm Sunday. We went to mass and got our palms. Every year I fold them into crosses. I have a ton of them now, going back at least 6 years. Its about time I got rid of some of them. Since they're blessed, I can't just throw them away...they need to be burned. I think they're really pretty all folded up. Some of the ladies at church fold them into fancy braids. One day I'll figure it out.
I still haven't gone through the circus pictures. I'm a slacker. Ooh, and this is my last week of work before a week of vacation! We're not going anywhere, but I'll be happy just to be home. Woooooo!!!!!!!!
