Week Ending 12 of CANDO 2014: Kitchen

I CAN stay with the CANDO plan in spite of a kitchen turned upside down:
 We are replacing our kitchen floor with 8" plywood planks,
 and get this...they will be painted bright white (kiddos are all gone).
The stove is in the garage and the refrigerator is in living room.
In anticipation of trying to do this while sticking to the CANDO plan,
I have prepared many frozen meals as our microwave is still functioning.
Our dear friends even volunteered to bring us dinner. :-)
That's the NVO. 
He looks mad but I am quite certain he is happy, 
as evidenced by the "Life is Good" hat. ;-)
This was found behind the refrigerator. I had forgotten.
Four years ago I wanted to paint behind the refrigerator,
 and the NVO (Digger) asked "Why?" and I told him
 "Because people that care live here" and he agreed.
It was documented.
No one sees it...its just a hidden painted wall that simply makes our heart feel good.
It's along the lines of the NVO's favorite quote from "The Little Prince" 
by Antoine de Saint-Exupry?
"What is essential is invisible to the eye...."

Okay, so all that was to distract you from this:
I made the photo really small in hopes you would miss this.
Up 1.2 lbs and only four weeks left from my target date.
Since my target weight is 119.5 it would not be 
feasible nor healthy to try and lose 16.1 lbs in 28 days.
I CAN leave the chart the way it is, but in my mind 
I CAN shoot for 10.6 lbs in 28 days,
for a new goal of 125 lbs by the end of April.
This is still a pretty lofty goal but at least doable.

The kitchen remodel CAN possibly make it or break it.

Here are today's charts:

I report the following:

If you would like a copy of this Excel spreadsheet to customize to your own plan, 
I would be happy to send it to you. 
Just drop me an email at digger.lizzie@gmail.com requesting it.

 Good news for the CANDO homies:
Ruff has been on vacation for two weeks and did not gain any weight
and the others have remained the same.

Here is the chart that includes everyone:

Have a good CANDO week and remember that the chart that includes
 everyone is posted on the CANDO 2014 page here.

See you next Monday!
(I changed weigh in day to Monday again...I confused too many people. :-) )

YOU CANDO IT!

  7. Good morning sweet friend! I have been catching up slowly with my blogging friends. Having been gone for a week to help my mother, I am way behind. I loved reading about your Mom and Dad coming here from Norway. I am sorry you have lost your dear Dad. My dear Daddy died 10 years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't miss him terribly. I was Daddy's girl!!!
    I love your Spring wreath! I am still working on mine. I need to get it done!!!! This week, for sure!!!
    You have done fabulously on your weight loss! I am so jealous. How I need to shed my winter coat!!!!
    Much love,
    Kris
