Who knew that a gluten free chicken tender and roasted veggies could wreak such havoc.
I know that the Gabapentin I have to take for neuropathy causes weight gain, but I didn't realize just how hard it is to lose weight. I need to lose 15 pounds, but oh boy I think I am going to have to go outside and graze on grass to get it off.
I am searching for solutions, so let me know if you have any.
Now on to something more fun. I wrote in a previous post that I was working on a couple of things to sell in my booth and I finished them a couple of days ago.
Of course I forgot to take any actual before photos, but I did think to take this one after I started.
I found this vintage Syroco plaque at Goodwill for $2.99. It was a plain ugly brown with two screws on the front where apparently something had originally hung.
I took it home and painted it with some chalk paint I had left over from some earlier projects and added some French writing. I love how it turned out.
I really wanted to keep it, but I made myself take it to the booth yesterday.
A couple of weeks ago I purchased five vintage suitcases from an estate sale. Four of them were great as is to put in the booth and I already sold two. The fifth had a big patch torn off the outside vinyl and so it needed to be rehabbed.
Like I said, no before photos, but I used the same paint and wording on it that I did on the plaque.
I'm happy with my projects and found that it was more fun than I thought it would be.
Now, about that weight loss effort, I guess today will be the day that I get back to my mall walking.
I aggravated my knee walking through a field and so it hasn't been super comfortable to walk the last couple of weeks.
No more excuses. I will get these pesky pounds off one way or another, and I can window shop while I do it. That's always fun.
Have a great day and if you have snow I hope it melts super fast.
