Busy Busy Busy

Been a while since I posted a blog but I have been fairly busy these last couple of weeks. My family has been looking for land to buy so we can build a house on it and in these last few weeks my husband and I have been looking a lot at different lots. We may have found one that we really like now just to see what all has to be done first before we put in an offer on it.
I haven't been on the scale lately but I am starting to like what I see in the mirror more and more. Some of my old clothes from before baby are starting to fit me again so I am feeling good about that. The scale itself has not really showed much in the way of changes that last time I did step on it a while back but the inches are coming off and my face is starting to slender down again. It is easier to hold my stomach in than it used to be which makes me feel more self confident.
My husband and I purchased some backpacking gear so we can start doing that as a family. I plan to spend lots of time on the treadmill this fall/winter season to up my endurance so when the spring/summer time comes along next year it won't kick my butt the first time out. I think I might eventually add a weighted vest to my training after my set mileage is no longer challenging.
I have not done my workouts the last week and a half or so with all the running around though I have made sure to get a lot of walking in. I did some very deep cleaning yesterday around the house and was very happy that I didn't get myself winded like I might have been a few months ago. I will get back to it Monday and I will be doing more deep cleaning this weekend.
I am looking forward to taking a road trip to see my family for Thanksgiving, it will be the first time in almost 3 years that I have seen my childhood home, and the first time since the remodeling my parents have done to it. I plan to take lots of long walks while we are visiting my family to help counteract any poor eating that might take place. I plan to eat in moderation and keep moving while we are on "vacation."
I have been doing not so great on my challenge against myself of not eating after 8 pm. I am working on it though. It seems I do really well for about 5 days and then something comes up and bam I end up eating after 8. I just have to keep working on it.
