WLB Progress

So, This was the first week of the Win Lose or Blog competition . 

I did pretty well this week. I went to the gym three days this week and did almost 8 miles. 

I stayed under my calorie goal every day but one. 

I ended my week with a 2.2 % weight loss, which I am super excited about.

So ... tonight I decided to take another swing at this Silhouette thing ... 

My husband got a Nook for Christmas and I bought a Nook Color with my Christmas money ((which our little girl loves to read the kid stories on by the way )) and I decided to make a little something something for our covers, after my husband brought up the idea actually. 

His came out pretty good on the first shot. His initials are JMH. 

 I went through about 4 designs to get mine down. I had to find a font that didn't make the S or M's lines too small. The vinyl was shredding and the Silhouette was having issues cutting the teeny tiny lines. I am happy with the way it turned out though. My initials are MSH.
