Starting Today

Monday, January 14, 2013

Starting today I am starting over, trying to get my weight in check. I spent the past few months packing my house in Norway, doing home repairs and fixing this and that. I arrived back in the U.S. a few days before Christmas. (I got that dreaded flu on Christmas Eve, as many others probably did, also.)

I spent last week signing up at a temp agency in hopes that I can get some temp work and earn some money while I wait for my husband to sell our house in Norway. I am thankful that I am living with my parents, but I would like my family living here to be less of a burden to my retired parents. It is amazing the amount of paperwork that one has to complete and the hoops you have to jump through (proof of previous employment, assessment tests, etc) just to get in the door!

Starting today I am back to drinking meal replacement drinks for breakfast and lunch, eating fruit and veg between when I am hungry, and eating a healthy dinner and cutting out snacking before bed.

I hope to borrow my parents' treadmill to get started with walking daily until the weather improves (or I can earn money to buy appropriate footwear to walk outside).

I'm sooo glad to hear you're back in the States, and I'm cheering you on as you start afresh again -- I'm doing the same, and so are a whole lot of us! Stay positive, and before you know it your family will all be back together in a home you can call your own again. Hang in there! emoticon

    Thanks Amanda! I really do need to not let things slide any more. Now, I just need to find where my parents hid the bathroom scale. I guess I can't obsess about my weight without the scale!

I did manage to get some cardio in today and boy am I out of shape!
