I'm now down a total of 16.6 total. It's still too soon to tell by looking at me that I've lost any weight, but I'll get there!
Hot 100 Challenge, here's my update for this week:
1. Lose 15-plus pounds by the end of the year / end of the challenge. Despite a mild start, I'm still heading in the right direction with 13.4 pounds to lose by the end of the year.
2. Get more sleep. Still failing miserably. I need to get a grip on my time management in order to make this happen, so I'm not scrambling around at night trying to finish everything up.
3. Start taking vitamins. I'm rocking this one! By the way, I enjoyed everyone's comments about the Horny Goat Weed from my last update. Still not sure what it really is intended for.
4. Make a plan for eating and exercising over the holidays and stick to it. This one is still several weeks off, but I'm already mentally rehearsing for it.
Last night was my monthly book club meeting. It is one of my favorite activities ever. In case anyone is interested, we'll be discussing The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton at our next meeting.
We always start with drinks and appetizers, followed by salad and main course, plus dessert. I passed on the sangria, which looked and smelled delicious, and I ate one Triscuit but none of the cheeses or meats on the appetizer tray.
Then we had a nice green salad (dressing on the side). My friend Wendy hosted last night, and bless her heart, she made a very healthy soup for the main meal. Big chunks of veggies and chicken in a clear broth with nice spices. Yum! By the way, Wendy is my "tiny friend" I referred to in my post about the Chocolate Lounge. Don't hate her for being thin - she really is one of the sweetest people I know. She also served her world-famous artichoke bread, and I had one small piece of that.
Then came dessert. It was a lovely thick pound cake with berries and whipped cream.

I had my dessert, but without the cake. Still yummy!

Have a wonderful weekend!
