We’re buying a house

That title really says it all, right? I’m not exactly sure how to react. It’s everything we wanted. It has the in-law apartment. It has 3 bedrooms. It has a big yard. It has a HUGE kitchen. It has a porch in the front AND a porch in the back of the house. I was in love the moment I saw it. I’m turning one of the rooms into an exercise room.

It’s all happening so freaking fast. I’m just…PINCH ME!

If all goes as planned, our closing is in April.

I do apologize for not updating sooner. My whole world has been in so crazy.

I promise to blog more often.

The weight loss has been at a stand still, but I haven’t gained anything. So, that’s a plus. I worked out 3 times this week and I’m feeling really good about things.

We’re buying a house!!

Blizzard of 2013

As I am sure most of you know the Northeast was hit with a big old Cluster Fluff this weekend. Gotta love a Blizzard.

This is the view from the top of my stairs.

I wish I had taken a picture of my car because, well, I couldn’t find it. I saw the antenna and that was it.

I spent 90 minutes shoveling and everything hurt. EVERYTHING! It was a hell of an upper body workout. I burned 393 calories according to my HRM.

Today everything is sore. My shoulders and wrists are the worst. But, I found the treadmill and managed a little over 3 miles.

2013-02-10 10.33.43We were going to go look at a house today, but our realtor was still snowed in. It’s rough here. I feel bad for people that are still unplowed. It’s crazy. I believe my town got around 30 inches or so. It didn’t beat the storm of 2011, but it came really close.

These three were no help.

So lazy.


Wednesday I went and did this:

2013-01-30 17.37.32I would like to thank Bradley for helping. He was so interested in what I was doing.

So yes, I went and signed back up for Weight Watchers. I’ve been struggling so very hard lately. I can’t even begin to tell you WHY I have been. It scares me. I told myself I would NEVER let my weight get so out of control and I did.

I’m trying. That is all I really CAN do at this point. I sometimes feel like such a fraud because I lost all that weight and started to gain it back again. But, I know I’m human and I’m not perfect and it happens. Right?

Saturday I was heading to the gym and after I was going to go to work for a little overtime and the trunk of my car smacked me in the head.

2013-02-02 18.15.34 2013-02-02 18.16.40It left a nice little egg on my head. Hurt pretty bad, too.

Oh and some good news. Finally approved for a mortgage!! Now the house hunting will really begin.
