Hello Spark Peeps

Monday, August 22, 2011

So I'm officially disgusted with myself and my lifestyle, so I'm back. The stress of the last two years has really taken it's toll on me. But, the good news first... I have a new job and really love it. The commute sucks, but the job is worth it. My husband has a new job and except for the hours he absolutely loves it. The income has gone up a bit. We are still a little stressed about catching up, but we are getting there... hopefully end of September will be good to us.

I start back to school to finish my degree. I have approximately 40 hours left and most of it is degree plan type stuff instead of boring core stuff.. only one more of those classes, YAY.

I did gain 10 pounds back of the 25 I lost. Oh well, back to the grind. I guess it's a wonder I didn't gain all of it with the lack of sleep and lack of exercise and total disregard for my diet. So that can be a good and bad news type thing. I'm tracking again starting today and watching the diet. I'll be walking up and down stairs until I get a check in the bank and then I'll rejoin a gym that is around the corner from me and start the lunch time workouts.

We are looking for a second car. We've been borrowing cars since my husband started his new job as we are on totally different schedules and I would be walking home from the train station (it's 3 miles which is not a big deal.. the 105+ degree heat is the problem). I'm in Texas where we are I believe working on our 59th day of plus 100 degree heat. It's starting to drain me and I love the heat.

Foot is causing me issues. Feel like it's broken but just think it's the plate and bone not meshing correctly. Pain in the butt and hurts, but I guess I'll deal with it until I've been at the new job long enough to think about having surgery to remove the plate.

Not sleeping, but that's stress again. Hopefully when the car issue gets resolved, that will help some.

so how's EVERYONE!!

    Not going to be a day under 106 here for the next week, UGH. Stick around, we're getting back in the groove at our house also after gaining back 5 lbs each. We can buddy up if you want!
