Sneak Peek?

January 29, 2016

Okay, I’m acting like this room is some really big deal, and it isn’t, it’s just the only thing I’ve got going on right now. I needed a project bad, and once I get a project started, it’s all I think about. Dinner was even an after thought last night. And….I forgot to prepare anything for Mike’s lunch…..and….I forgot….yes, I forgot….to go to Yoga last night at 6:30. and I really like that class!

I was hoping to have a project that wouldn’t cost a lot of money, and so far, so good! We had extra paint leftover from recently painting Mike’s office and I had all of the painting supplies in the garage. I thought i was going to have to do something drastic to the stained, 17 year old, beige, builder grade carpet, but thanks to a fairly recent purchase of a miracle carpet cleaner product called Capture, (apparently it’s been around for years) the carpet is now great for an exercise room.  This stuff got out some 8 year old, red acrylic paint stains!! Oh, happy days!

Here is one wall….just a little sneak peek. Simple. Nothing fancy. 

“Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful”

“Turn Your Cants into Cans, and Your Dreams into Plans”

I found these at Hobby Lobby. Cute, huh?


I need to purchase a TV to mount on the wall in front of the treadmill  (thank goodness I didn’t have to spend any money on paint!) and it is my goal to purchase it, mount it, and complete that little project on my own.

Wish me luck!

I did cook breakfast for myself yesterday. I tossed some red onions in the skillet to caramelize and I thought they would be great on my sweet potato bun, egg, avocado combo. I totally forgot I had made them and realized it when I was cleaning up! Urg!

So I ate a few on a little piece of sweet potato with some sea salt. Damn it that was good.


Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 7 SP

130g of Sweet Potato Bun, 3 Egg Whites, 20g Avocado, 1/2 Slice Bacon  (zero caramelized red onion) Black Grapes, Black Coffee




Lunch – 11 SP

Mixed Greens, Grilled Chicken, Sliced Pear, Raw Walnuts, Dried Cherries (no added sugar), 1 T Blood Orange Olive Oil, 1 T. Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar.



Dinner – 8 SP

I bought these frozen veggies at Costco and put a few in the over to eat with some grilled chicken for dinner. FYI, we thought they were gross and threw them away. The hubs thought they tasted freezer burnt. I just thought they tasted like….grossness.



So, we had salad again, which was fine, because it was super tasty. It was a tad smaller version of my lunch salad. There’s a little chicken in there somewhere. I gave Mike most of the chicken. I’m giving like that.

    Thanks! That’s a great way to look at it! I do love a project.

    I think I bought it at Home Depot? I went to Lowe’s first, and that particular Lowe’s had just recently stopped selling it. I think they also sell it at Menard’s, if you have one of those.

    I just went to the website, and I think you can find a retailer close to you that sells it from the Capture website.

    Sorry for the late reply. Good luck!


  3. Hi Julie,

    Where did you find the Capture? I have a few spots I would like to try it on.


  4. Even though you didn’t exercise or fix hubby’s lunch, I think it’s awesome when you can get so absorbed in what you’re doing. I think that’s a good thing!
