Sorry I haven't been on here in so long. School has definitely taken over my life....well, that and trying to sleep with the job. So, here's my update on everything that is going on.
I am officially one year older. Yesterday I celebrated a birthday and was treated to a surprise weekend away, hotel, awesome sushi, and a killer play at a theater that had me in stitches. It was a great weekend and so nice to be away with Hubby. As we were driving down to the cities though, I realized that I really need to get my butt in gear to make things happen. I have all of these amazing dreams and desires......yet something is always able to detract my attention. Well, not any more. Life is about balance. I need to learn how to interject the changes and behaviors I need in order to see the changes and results I need.
School is kicking my butt -but this semester is also over in a month (gulp). I need to step it up and really push through to finish as strongly as I can -as this is the hardest and academically weakest semester I've had so far.
The house is still in disarray because of our continuos remodeling. However, we have a functional kitchen again complete with new counters, stove and sink. Beautiful. In the next weeks we're hoping for our back splash, new cabinet doors and new paint on the walls...oh, and a new light fixture. The dining room will be next to finish......as it is a part of the kitchen remodel.
For my health......well, the 23 pounds I had reported was a fluke with my scale. :( The next day I had gained back all of those 8.6 pounds. I'm at 16 pounds right now and while I haven't been the best, I haven't been the worst with my diet either. I just need to kick it into high gear again. Next semester I told Hubby I want to have a designated date night every week......only instead of pizza and a movie -it will be at the gym. :)
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We're heading into the dangerous holiday time where people feel obligated to eat too much and indulge to the max. Remember what we're all working for....a balance, a loss of weight, a gain of health and the ability to proudly saw we control our habits, not the other way around.
Good night all!! I'm so glad to be back!
