Weight in Wednesday ~ Eye Update ~

Hi Peeps! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful first day of spring! 

It was glorious here! 80 degrees and perfect! I am so enjoying this weather. I truly hate the cold and hope someday to move somewhere warm most all year round. So this early spring has lifted me up into sun shiny happiness. I am loving it. 

I skipped the gym for the first time in 2 months yesterday and went right home so we could jump on the Harley and take off. Oh it was heaven. I lose myself every time  get on that wonderful piece of machinery. We rode up to a friends to check out a quad he was offering to Mr. Primcat for some car repair. Someone ran into his truck and his car has some rust so the Mr. (who's life is auto body and paint and customizing cars) is going to fix it for the quad. And the fun part... is the quad is for me! Woohoo! Excited! I'm such a tomboy! Bring on the quad!

My soon to be nice quad once hubby does his magic on it.

It'a a mess... but hubby will make it awesome.

And this is Mr. Primcats quad. 

After checking out the quad we headed to dinner and went to Applebee's. They have a bunch of new WW meals and they are so good. The Grilled Jalapeno Lime Shrimp is my favorite and it's only 8 points! Yum! 

And that brings us to this weeks weigh in... 

Starting Weight: 150

Last Weeks Weight: 137

This Weeks Weight: 136

Total Lost: 14 Pounds

Down another pound! Yay!!! 

I actually hit 135 last Friday but I had a little to much food and drink celebration for ol' St. Pat and lost the number by Monday. lol.

That's ok! Zumba class tonight... I'll get rid of it again! 


Thought I'd also give you an eye update. 

Everything is great. My vision is really good. I have very little disturbances at all anymore. I am having some dry eye that causes blurry vision but that should clear up in time too. 

The only thing that I still have that is bad is that I can't drive at night. The lights are huge star bursts so driving at night is very dangerous. I can't see because the lights blind me. I have only driven once at night and that was to Angie's and it was so scary I wasn't sure I was going to make it home. They said it could take up to a year to clear worst case. So until this clears I'm a day driver. No biggie. My man drives me where ever I need to go. :) 

Have a wonderful day everyone!!! 

Until next time... 

Carmen and the Primcats

Congratulations on the weight loss. I am so happy for you. I can't drive myself either so hubby takes me everywhere I need to go. Mine is because the amount of pain meds I am on ahh not a wise thing to drive on pain meds and you would be surprised at the people who do!!! Love your home decorations for spring! Have a wonderful week!

Woohoo! Way to go.
All you wonderful ladies are making me want to get off my lazy butt and try to get in shape!
I'm so glad your vision has gotten a lot better.
It had me worried for awhile. So happy everything is good.
As for driving at night, I can't see at night either.
The oncoming lights blind me.
The weather here in Southern IL has been beautiful too!
I'm loving it!!

Good morning Carmen. Love the quad runner. You'll have lots of fun riding that. I use to have one and the Mr. traded it for a Kubota. He tends to do alot of trading, cars, bikes, etc.
Something he wants of course, lol.
Enjoy this nice day
Country at heart

That quad will be so much fun, I'd love to have one, we do snowmobiles and in younger days I rode dirt bikes (Dad made me get a MC license in order to get a driver's license!) and raced trails. Now just auto cross w/ the Mustang :)

You go girl w/ the weight lose, that is wonderful! Glad to hear about the eye situation are gonna' be one hot mama on that quad girl!
