Week 9:Day 2 (57)
Tuesday, March 29, 2016
I try to post updates every Monday to keep myself focused and motivated. Sort of a record of my successes and failures. But I missed the Monday a week ago because I had some emotions I had to work through. And I forgot to do it yesterday because I just plain forgot.
For the past two years I've been living with my boyfriend. His brother is in the military (Navy) and because of that his parents will be keeping his two small children for an extended amount of time. My boyfriend feels the need to move back with his parents to help them and the kids adjust to the new situation. We talked a lot about this and our relationship in general and both agreed that there hasn't been a "spark" for quite awhile now. Perhaps some time apart will do us some good? I still love him and I know he loves me.
I found a house not too far from where we've been living that has a room for rent. The owner already has one tenant and wanted a second one so, bada-bing. I move in this weekend.
I'm devastated by the change in the relationship, but I'm looking forward to the new area. The house is literally steps away from a peaceful park with walking trails so I'm already planning out some evening walks.
I glimpsed the 15 pound mark this morning before breakfast. I haven't claimed it yet because of course after the day is said and done, I'm hanging out at 14, but it's just around the corner! I glimpsed it!
I had a terrible weekend, food-wise. Had a minor family emergency in Georgia (I'm in Alabama) that I had to attend to and ate some DELICIOUS crepes from iHop that were over 1,000 calories all by itself! I didn't realize how bad they were until later in the day. At least it motivated me to actually do my cardio that night.
Now that I KNOW the 15 mark is coming I'm determined to stay on track.
