High Five for Friday

This week seemed to go by quick - I'm sure I'm the only one to say that! I'm not sure why; I didn't do anything super fun or exciting, but for once, it didn't seem to drag. That's a good thing, right? And now that it's Friday, it's time to link up for the weekly High Five for Friday with Lauren at From My Grey Desk ...

I'm doing super well with the weight loss system Isagenix. I lost seven pounds during the 9 day cleanse and that has helped me reach 16 total pounds gone. I'm excited to keep using the system and keep losing the weight. I want to reach my goal weight and be able to wear a swimsuit soon! And, feel cute in a swimsuit! (Is that even possible??)

Speaking of swimsuits, I like looking for ones to help keep me motivated. These are some of my favorite that some day I hope I can wear ~

Thought this retro style would be cute while I'm losing the weight - from the Orchid Boutique.

Not sure I'll ever be able to wear a bikini, but I like this one from Victoria's Secret.

Victoria's Secret is having their semi-annual sale, and I decided to take a gamble and order some clothes since they were such a great deal. I bought a few tanks and a pair of shorts in size medium and they fit!!! The shorts are drawstring so they'll continue to fit as I lose weight as well. 

As you can tell, I'm a little happy that I'm losing weight!

Today I am baking cookies. I am very excited about this!! I used to bake every weekend, but after my husband passed, I stopped baking and have only baked once since the beginning on March. One, because I don't have any one to bake for, and two, because I don't want baked goods around the house when I'm trying to get healthy. However, with it being Father's Day on Sunday, I want to bake my dad some cookies. So I'm making these guys today .... can't wait to sneak some batter!!

Oreo Fudge Cookies

Do you think I could pull this look off? I am in LOVE with this look!

Until next time~

  1. Those swimsuits are absolutely adorable! I need to get in bikini shape pretty soon... the winter flab is getting a little old. :)

    Have a great week!
