Working to Feel In Control

Well this week I lost 1 lb. I'm a little surprised as I was a bit over on my points... but I tracked most days, worked out and was packing.  I could obviously lose move if I try to stay within my points.  But I'm still working with baby steps here, so my goal is to track all 7 days regardless of what I eat.

I was able to get to the gym 3 days this past week, so that is also a very good accomplishment.  I only have one more to go before I hit my goal for my healthcare insurance and get my $20 back.  I looked at how well I did this year and for the year my goal was to get my 8/month in each month so I'm not wasting my gym membership.  I can say since February, I've made it each month (I set the goal in mid-January) except for June.  The reason for June is that's the month we prepped to put our house on the market and I was getting plenty of work outs in at home.

I'm feeling a bit more in control and definitely better day to day by eating a bit healthier.  I haven't felt like this in a while, so I'm proud of myself for that.

We are still packing and going gang busters here, we want to be in a good place before our vacation so that we're not rushing that last week and a half.  So I feel very in control there too.

Things are coming together for me.  It will be harder as time goes by as we are trying to eat everything we have in the house before we move - so meals will get interesting :)

Either way...

Making myself a priority!

Well, I lost what I gained last week.  So that's good.  I know I made some better choices and was trying to stay a little more concious of what I was doing for the week.  But I didn't track at all.  My goal for this week is to track a minimum of 4 days.  I know I can do that, hell I know I can do all 7 but lets start small so we can make ourselves feel better.

Unfortunately I feel like I'm getting sick... that may be a plus and help me lose weight though.  ha ha!

This past 7 days has been a whirl wind... we got an offer on our house (finally and it was decent AND we took it), we made an offer on a house (I knew the one I wanted and glad I didn't miss out on this one, but the people were very unreasonable OR their Realtor is just an idiot or doesn't know what he's doing yet -- very young, unprofessional and in my opinion lazy and "spoke" for his clients when he shouldn't have... my poor realtor)... we did finally come to an agreement.  Inspections have been done on both houses... both came out well.  Almost all my loan documentation is done (yay!)...

and now the packing begins... We close in a month and 10-ish days.  So we have time, but we have a lot of stuff and both have separate vacations we're going on.  So that's a week gone for both of us... so we basically have a month to pack and plan how we're going to move our stuff. (I'm working on that right now)

Anyway - I am less stressed (kind of) and should be able to pack, go to the gym and make myself a priority and eat healthier.  That is my goal for this week.

Shake it off!

I haven't blogged in a few weeks... one was because I wasn't around for weigh in and the other I just didn't have time last week.

I'm still not on track.  I am going to the gym (the minimal amount) but not doing well with food.  I'm not sure why I can't get myself back on track - I know I need to.  I'm taking a trip in one month and probably won't have anything to wear... and another trip in January.


I have to shake this off.  I have to focus on me.  This house selling stuff makes me so emotional and stressed out.  I don't want to cook much in case we get a showing request.  I can't have my house smelling weird.  We just went through a house yesterday that smelled bad and it totally turned me off, so I feel somewhat justified... but when we go out to eat, I make bad decisions when I could actually pick something decent.

I will figure this out!  I have to!
