Well, I am glad that my last post wasn’t from the first quarter of 2019… but it has been awhile. We have been so busy since the summer! We bought & moved into the house on 7-12-19!
An hour after we signed the contract, we adopted two black baby kittens (3-4 months old). We initially went there to look at dogs (we were going there just about once a week for that month). The kittens left the animal shelter as Bono (m) + Blake (f). They arrived to an empty home as Spencer + Blair, and I cannot picture this home without them. 🥰
Our lovely friends helped us move in… school started.. we were still working, rented out one of our bedrooms to a friend, then had a few parties and company stay over. It was non-stop until December 13th (fall semester ended + I started vacation). Christmas came and gone.. and now it is the year 2020!
I have been off of work the past 3.5 weeks and it has been glorious! I got so much done. I was able to clean and organize the house– the little things I kept thinking about, but put on the back burner. I didn’t get everything done, but enough to be satisfied until I get into the mood of organizing some more. 😊
Last week I started working out with Beachbody. It’s hard, but enjoyable. Right now I’m doing the Barre Blend videos. 🙌🏽And although I have been a Weight Watchers member for months, I am finally back on track and sticking to my points. (Team Blue!) I changed my weigh-in days from Wednesday to Monday.
My first weigh-in of the year was this past Monday, January 6th… 1.2 pounds down! It wasn’t as much as I hoped, but every little step counts and I’m proud that I lost some weight during my first week. With Weight Watchers, a healthy weight to lose is between 1-2 pounds a week. It helps that my BFF started doing WW, too. Every day we are checking in with each other and sharing recipes we come across. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
I finally changed my position at work– I’ve been talking about it the last 6 months or so, and finally got the courage to do it. Now I can focus more on school and work less. I prefer not to work, but sadly I’ll go back tomorrow. Then it just gets busy next week:
- January 10th is our anniversary. I think we decided on Sushi and a movie date.
- January 13th is when the new semester starts. I am required to take this Statistics Research class which I’m not really looking forward to, BUT I’m looking forward to my Forensic Psychology class!
- January 15th is my birthday. I decided to work and I have classes, so maybe dinner at this new-ish fancy restaurant.
- Then we are celebrating my birthday on January 18th with friends- Pizza, snacks, and games. 😊
I’m very happy how things are going right now. I’m feeling good about myself and my future. 😊 And I say this every time, but I hope to blog more lol. But who knows, I’m busy being me. 🙃
