Day 116 - Weighing In
Thursday, March 26, 2015
My second day on the job was a good one. I got to take a real lunch break and drove home to let the dogs out. I read the paper while I ate, and still made it back to the office within the hour. I even left at a decent time. The dogs have been on their best behavior too! I wonder if they know how important it is for me not to find any surprises on the rugs or the floor while they're home alone!
We are back under contract on the house in Sacramento. The backup offer that we had came through this morning, just after 6am. (Yes, that early!) The lender is trying to push for a quick close (but still 30 days), and the buyer is going to take the home inspection that was done for our first buyers, who were the only ones to actually have a home inspection before they backed out.
This has been a roller coaster ride, and after the 4th or 5th time riding, I think I want to get off. I hope this one goes through. It is not as great monetarily as the other offer, but it seems as if this buyer is serious. He's coming back to visit the house on Friday, since it has been a couple weeks since he saw it. I hope he is still happy with his decision.
In better news, I'm finally below the 180-pound mark as of this morning. I'm just 6.5 pounds away from my goal now, and it feels so close and doable. The only problem is the evening when I come home from work and my willpower to avoid overeating is at its weakest. I'm falling back into old, bad patterns about eating a big dinner after work. That needs to stop right now.
I need to keep reminding myself of my goals, and that I can control my portions even when I'm mentally tired from the workday.
Yes, I can!
