Working Weight Watchers... Again

Yup... started Weight Watchers again!  It's got to be my 5th or 6th time going back. 

It' so hard, it sucks.  I just have to keep in mind that it sucks worse to feel the way I do about myself then to have to give up eating what ever I want, when ever I want.   

Of course leaving for an 8 day family cruise on July 9th and having to see hundreds of other women at BlogHer in August might have something to do with my decision to start up again.   But hey, whatever works right?

I really need to work on tracking my food.  I'm horrible at it.  I usually write down breakfast, sometimes lunch but by the time dinner comes around I can't be bothered.   For me night time is the hardest, it's when I tend to snack the most.   So, I'm sure that could be why I don't like to track.  It's some sort of mental game I play with myself.  
The other thing I'm horrible at is exercising.  O.M.G. it's the worst!  Doesn't housework and shopping count?  I am not a fan of sweating for any reason!   I wish stress could burn calories, I would weigh about 95lbs.     

I could really use some good / low point snack ideas.  So if you are on the new Weight Watchers PointsPlus program and have ideas to share, I would love to hear from you.

Making Fabric and Cork Mousepads

Original Pin from ModernDayMoms.com

It's a good ol' Pinterest inspired project again.  I love me my Pinterest!

I've had this pinned on my DIY Inspiration board for a while now.  I really pinned because I liked the shape of it.  I actually don't even use a mousepad.

Today I'm going to lunch with my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday.   I always like to bring them a little something when we get together.  It's just what I do.
I knew they would love these mousepads and I knew they would be easy to make quickly!

I had everything already except the fabric, so I ran to Walmart to grab some.

Mousepad Prep

First I cut the cork into my shape using an X-Acto knife.  Then cut the fabric to the same shape just a little smaller (shrunk the template I used for the cork on my printer)  I used adhesive spray to glue the fabric to cork.   That's it, DONE!  It's as easy as that!
