Gah. I had this entire blog already typed, and then my window shut down for absolutely no reason...
So here I go again.
I apologize for my lack of blogs this past week. We were lucky enough to get the house we put in an application for (we're renting) and I've spent most of the last week packing up my life, and shopping at garage sales for furniture to fill said house.
In the craziness of this new job and new house, I've let a few (okay, 6) pounds creep back on. I knew I was doing it to myself, every time I made a less healthy choice, but I kept justifying that once I'm in Michigan I can get back into a good workout and healthy eating routine, and right now I just want comfort and whats quick and easy.
But still, I've not given up SparkFriends. I refuse to let go, and regain all my weight, so no worries there. I've just found it very easy to maintain in the 170s, and when I eat poorly, I can get back on track with a good healthy food day and return to normal. However, lately the poor food days have outweighed the good ones, hence my scale rising again.
But my mindset on the scale has even changed. I've been so busy, I haven't been weighing as often. And my mindset on clothes have changed too. When going through clothes to pack or donate, I find myself keeping clothes that I look and feel good in, regardless of size. There were some size 10s that were too big, so I donated them, but a pair of size 12 pants that fit great that I kept. I don't care so much about the number anymore. Yes, I'm a freak of nature that can wear size 6 up to a size 12 comfortably, but it's just not a huge deal anymore. I'm not as body conscious as I used to be, and I'm happy about that.
I will miss my parents immensely. They are two of my best friends, and it will definitely be tough not seeing them every day. But I know they are happy and proud of me, and that's really all that matters. I'll also miss all of my friends, but I think this new adventure will be great for J.D. and me.
Got to go now, but I will try to post some pics of the house after we move in this weekend. If we have internet. I'm not sure how soon that will be set up.
Thanks for reading Sparkfriends!
