My 30 Day Challenge -- Day 24-25: Moving is a big PAIN

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Ugh -- I've spent the last two days going through the house trying to tidy things up, sort, sift etc, etc. My movers are coming in less than three weeks at this point -- eek! At least (thankfully) the movers are packing everything and loading it onto the truck. I will have to unpack myself, but that I don't mind so much. It's just been stressful and as the date looms in the near future -- it is becoming more and more stressful!

As a result -- my stress eating -- old habit -- has been trying to butt it's big ugly head into my life. I've been more successful than unsuccessful -- but still there's a lot of wiggle room in that statement! It is tough to go over to people's houses for dinners and stay on track, especially when everything looks SO GOOD. But I'm back on track this week and looking forward to ME-day on Saturday (code name for weigh-in day -- but Me-day sounds so much better). I would like to hit my 5% mark this week, but that might be a little too lofty of a goal, just over 2 pounds to reach it. But it's not all about the scale.

I went for a hike this morning (so lucky to have a great trail head literally at the end of the street) and although I was a little bit stretched for time, I managed to kick it up a notch and do the monster hill twice before turning back towards home. Hope to do a REPEAT tomorrow morning. OH! And I've got a ballroom dancing lesson in the early afternoon. We've been working on perfecting (hah, I use that word very loosely) my Cuban motion technique. It's fun -- such a great indoor hobby.

After my great hike this morning -- I realized my backyard needed a bit of help to get my house ready to rent out -- so spent a good hour and a half trimming, pulling weeds, replanting some new plants etc. etc. WHEW. I think that I will sleep soundly tonight!

Okay, well still tons left to do tonight before I crawl into bed...

Oh, so I posted a blog with my long term/ mid term and short term goals (borrowed the template from another user because it was so great!). I'm working on the first of my three short term (30 day) streaks. Let's see how I did.

1). Eat at least three veggies/fruits daily. Check.
2) Exercise at least 30 minutes three times a week. Check. (90 minutes today, but I'm not counting that for the whole week).
3) Track daily. Check. Even the not so healthy couple of days over the weekend! OOF. But it's not going to disappear if I just ignore it and not track it. Got to stay accountable to myself!

Okay, so 1/1 so far on my 30-day phase 1 streak. WOOHOO. emoticon

Just 5 more days left of my 30 day tracking accountability blog challenge. emoticon
Thanks for reading!
