Cha cha cha changes...

Great, just got that song stuck in my head by writing that title. I don't even know the words!
So yes, my life, it is a-changin'. On Monday, I decided to change my weight goal from 150 to 130 for the wedding. I don't know if I'll make it, but the lower calories will definitely help. I was 1500-1850 before, and almost always at the high end. I'd see I had 200 calories left, and eat a Skinny Cow ice cream. It was an excuse.
Now, I'm on 1200-1550. Amazingly, I was in the 1200s the last two days, no problem. It was definitely a mentality I needed to change. Also, if I go over now, it's not as many calories as going over my old limit of 1850. If I AIM for 1550, going too high will maybe be 1700 or so, instead of 2000 (eek). So yes, I'm glad I made this change. I'm also following the SP meal plans to a degree, which is helping me manage the smaller number of calories.
My other change...I gave notice at my job today! Simon and I have enough money now (from my mother's wrongful death settlement) to pay off the house and car, and he makes enough to cover our bills and expenses. I will definitely have to budget better now, but it's doable. I'm going to study to become a wedding coordinator and continue selling jewelry on Etsy. I want to CREATE things, not sit in a cube Monday through Friday, 9 to 5. I will NOT miss the commute. =P
I will also have time to keep our house clean and exercise more. I'll make healthy lunches for Simon and dinner almost every night. I can try new and more difficult recipes. I am SO looking forward to this!
My last day is May 14. The countdown begins...to my whole new life!
