I know I'm behind on my posts, and I'm sorry. I've not been myself these last 6 weeks and I'm not liking that I've allowed myself to get like this. My eating habits have gotten out of control and I've been stress eating. I've not been working out and everything has been overwhelming with everything I've been trying to do. I've been working 7 days a week since the end of August and after only a few short weeks I began to lose my balance. I was working to hard and my body crashed into a depressive state. I was spending so much time working and focusing on house hunting that I forgot about everything else.
I've gained 6 lbs, which doesn't sound like a lot, but visually it's not a picture I like to see, and my shoulders and neck are so tight. Last week my chiropractor told me this is the worst he's seen me and I have another appointment Thursday. I did finally restore my gym membership last week, and I've been able to go twice. It feels so good to run and some stress has been relieved, but I have so much stored in my shoulders and neck it's going to be awhile before I'm fully recovered.
I'm excited for the weekend as this is going to be my first weekend that I'm not working since the end of August and I'll be spending all of it with friends. Friday I'm going to a bonfire, Saturday I may be helping a friend paint her room, in the evening I'm going to a friends for Karaoke and Sunday I'll be attending our young adult service, which I've missed the last two months.
Things are looking up in the house hunt and right now I'm just trying to be patient, but feeling anxious to hear news from my Realtor about a house I want to buy. It's a numbers game right now and I'm not sure if the numbers will add up in my favor for this place. The positive is since viewing this place on Friday I've stopped looking for other places, which is a good sign that I'm not looking for a way out like I've done with the previous two that I was close to putting an offer on. Though my dad did help in my decision of not purchasing them. It's been helpful and a blessing to have both my parents along with me on the house I have a high interest in and even better that they are not finding reasons to argue with each other. I really appreciate their opinions and want their blessing in the house I decide to buy and I have that with with current house.
HERE'S A SNEAK PEAK THE DINING AREA
I know I've got to get back on track with my eats and exercise so I'll be working on a plan tongiht so I don't try to add any more excuses to why I'm out of control and getting fat.
I plan on re-starting the Sexy is Strong Challenge, which I'm excited about. This is a great challenge and I saw so much progress in the 5 weeks I was going strong. I also plan on writing down my eats again. This is a way for me to really see what I'm eating and when. I'm also going to be good and start slow. I'm going to be working out just 3 days a week, and only cardio. My first, this week, I'll be working out at the gym in the evening doing only cardio. Then next week I'll resume my morning workouts at the gym and hopefully catch up with a few of my workout buddies I haven't seen since June. I'm also going to not turn on the computer after 9pm, so I'm not up past 10pm and I can get some sleep. Last night I was proud of myself for shutting out the lights by 10pm and getting 8 hours of sleep.
10/10/11 HOUSE UPDATE
Turns out the taxes on the house (photo shown above) were to high for me to quality to buy it, so it's back to square one on looking. Plus, the owners aren't willing to go down any further then their current listing price, which is far to high for the amount of work that needs to be done here.
