It's finally Friday, sparkers!
Not only is today Friday, but today also marks 6 months of marriage between my husband and I! Time flies when you're having fun!! In the past 6 months we have gone to the Bahamas for our honeymoon, we have booked another cruise for our 1 year anniversary, and we have bought our very own first house! Our lives as a married couple have been very eventful in the past 6 months, and we are so grateful to have been blessed in so many ways this year!
To celebrate all of our blessings and our mini anniversary, we are going out to dinner tonight at the Olive Garden. We found a gift certificate from Christmas during our move and we have been itching for an excuse to go out to dinner there! What better reason than our 6 month wedding anniversary?!
Now, just because we are going out to eat does not mean that I am going to neglect my nutrition tracker like I have been prone to do before. I am going to log faithfully and stay on target as best as I can this evening! I am planning on ordering the Portabello Ravioli with a side of Chicken and Gnocchi soup. The Ravioli is always very filling, and I am looking forward to it! I cannot wait for our romantic dinner this evening! This move has been fun, but it has taken up a lot of our energy and our focus this past week. We are both looking forward to some time away from home tonight to focus on us, our relationship, how far we have come, and where we are going from here!
Tonight is going to be a great start to an exciting weekend! Tomorrow we are going to get some cleaning done at the rental and on Sunday we are having my father over to see our house for the very first time! Sunday is also going to be our first day back to the gym in about three weeks and our first time back to our old church in quite some time now! We are so happy to be living only a block away from our church now, as before the 15 minute drive would often come up as an excuse to skip. We are so blessed to have the opportunity of finally owning our first home, and I couldn't imagine not going to church this weekend to praise God for all of the good things he has given us! God is good!

We've been in our new house for almost a week now and we are getting more and more settled each day. I have gained about 4-5 pounds in a few weeks. I don't want the scale to keep going in the wrong direction, so I am slowly coming back to SP! I am going to start tracking again today!
My husband and I still have our gym membership but haven't been there in about three weeks. Ever since we found out when our closing date was, we have been on the go with packing, loading, and now... unpacking. Life happens. I am not going to beat myself up over my slight downslide because my energy and focus needed to be on the move.
Something that I am happy about is that I went to my OB/GYN and she got me back on my metformin for my PCOS. I just started taking the metformin each morning a few days ago. I am not going to notice any differences right away, but hopefully it will regulate my cycle and maybe in a few more years it will be easier to conceive. We aren't trying to have kids just yet, but I know with PCOS it makes conceiving a lot harder so we are trying to nip this in the butt early! It's funny... all I can think about now is having a baby ever since we closed on our house! We have a lot we both want to do before we start trying though so we will probably get a dog in the meantime! I have wanted a dog of my own ever since I was 16 years old. Now that we have our own house and a nice yard, we are doing our research on the type of dog that is right for us!
I am not sure if I will get to the gym at all this week, as we are still unpacking and getting settled, but my husband and I have decided that we will get back in to our gym routine on Sunday for sure. So, in the meantime I am going to get as much unpacking done as possible that way there will be no excuses for skipping the gym next week!
Today is suppose to be a great sunshine-filled day! I am working until 5:00 and then I am going to go home to make dinner! We are grilling out tonight; Bruschetta Chicken... yum!
I hope that all you sparkers make it a great day!

Wow, I can't believe that I am writing this blog from our very first home! We have finally made it. Our lives have officially changed forever... for the good! This is the best feeling in the world! I love waking up every morning in our home.
It's been a long time since I have tracked, blogged, or exercised... but I am coming back soon. Pinky swear!
I just wanted to let everyone know that we have finally arrived. We are in our home!! :)

Well, yesterday was an all around bad day. Sadly, my calorie intake mirrored that bad day and I ended up eating a whopping 2400 calories. I knew I was in for it when it was only 3:00 p.m. and my total calories for the day was 1400.
Now, in the past, eating that much would make me depressed and the last thing that I would want to do is work out. But that is such a vicious cycle that I want to stay away from. So last night, I went to the gym. I strength trained my upper body followed by some light cardio on the treadmill. I am very proud of myself, because I know that the "old me" never would have went to the gym after such a bad day.
Something in my back has been out of place for a week now. It doesn't hurt as much as it is annoying, which also didn't help my bad day yesterday. I was hoping that it would correct itself overtime, and by the end of the day it is usally worked out, but after a long nights rest it pops right back out of place and it's getting really annoying! I might have to visit the chiropractor for an adjustment.
Today is off to a better start already. I am trying to keep my spirits high, despite my back being out of wack. I'm hoping that my boss is in a better mood today, and I am also going to practice self control and drink water when I crave snacks. I brought 100 calorie packs to snack on throughout the day as well, that way I don't reach for a candy bar or something drastic!
I am still hoping to be down to 249 lbs by Sunday, even with my goof up yesterday. I think that I can do it!
***Update - 12:30 p.m.
My boss was in a much worse mood today. Lucky me. I got yelled at again. I should feel better knowing that she has yelled at everyone in our office today, but it doesn't help. I know that I am a hard worker, and I get a lot of stuff done behind the scenes that she doesn't even get a chance to notice. I took a break and cried for a good 5 minutes, which helped me a lot but not enough to keep me away from a 100 grand candy bar. Yikes. I can not have a repeat of yesterday. I just traded that candy bar for one of my 100 calorie snacks. I am now done eating until dinner time. Water is going to be my best friend this afternoon!
