Well, it only took 23 months, but…
Please ignore the bruised face. They are actually getting better!!
Yesterday I logged all of my food, which I have mostly done every day except on a handful of meals where I knew I went way overboard I just “quick added” a bunch of calories. I am now on a countdown to get back to the gym, and have decided that I can use this time to really focus on my nutrition rather than just blowing it, and ruining all of my hard work this year. Also, I am going to make sure to get my 10,500 steps every day. I’ve been really slacking on that.
This morning I woke up and I was happy that I had straightened the house up and have finally made headway in the laundry. Those are things that really weigh on me when they aren’t done.
Also, I am pleased to announce we are doing great on our budget so far. I know it’s only 4 days in but it was the weekend and we usually spend, spend, spend. It’s going to be a lot of sacrifice, but I am confident we can reach our goals. It’s amazing how many times I go to mindlessly buy something online. I swear there were at least 6-8 times since Friday I wanted to get something but I didn’t. I keep reminding myself it doesn’t fit in our long term goals. I swear those little purchases add up to thousands and thousands. I mean, if I make five purchases in a week between 15-50 dollars that can be almost 1000 a month on stuff I want, but don’t need.
I think this budget is going to help to make our house less cluttered. And to focus on what we have and make the best of it. And the best part for me is it takes away a shit ton of anxiety.
I love our slow mornings, especially Monday’s.
We are going to the zoo on Wednesday and I am looking forward to that. I think my mother in law is going to meet Henry and I. We plan to go from 9-12. It’s going to be 79 degrees!! Woo hoo!! Much better than this 90 degree heat.
Well, have a great Monday, friends! 💕💕
My first weigh in back at the gym will be the week after next. So, there won’t be a weigh in update until then. Although, I may go next week for some accountability.
