After lots of stress and almost complete financial ruin, my husband got a job! A really well paying job! And we got the first paycheck today. I celebrated! I went to Costco! I didn't go crazy. Just buying kiwis and a Halloween costume for my daughter, amongst some other assorted groceries was celebration enough. I almost bought some steak, but with this job being across the country, I couldn't bring myself to have a celebratory dinner without my husband by my side. So downfall, he is gone for a few months, we can go visit, but it's not a permanent location so we wont be moving quite yet. But we finally have money.
Some weigh has been lifted. And I was a little more motivated to do physical stuff, like getting out and vacuuming my van, than I have been recently. Also still going strong with no caffeine! I did buy some Caprisuns to help me get through the craving for a sweet drink. They serve a dual purpose in that my girls will drink them. I'm working on more water right now too. After I feel I have mastered these, my next goal will really be infusing fruits and veggies into my diet. I think I will take it slow though and really focus on the no caffeine and water goal. I do eat fruits and veggies, but I could always use more!
So today is good. Better times are ahead. And maybe as I work on this, I can also start to work on my goal to be a little skinnier whenever my husband gets back or we go visit! Trying hard not to put too much pressure on myself though so that I don't get too obsessed! That is always my pitfall!
One day at a time!
