When I’m Ready

Besides being the worst blogger in the world, life has been pretty good for me.  I made a promise to myself that I was going to post more and I hope that I do. I hate that I used to be a much better blogger. I really want to be. I’m just so not into anymore. I read so many awesome blogs and I’m just not that person right now.

Yesterday I got to see my BEST FRIEND IN THE WORLD for the first time in NINE years. We’ve known each other for 25 years. She lives a million miles away in Missouri, but we still keep in touch. The last time she was here was 2004. I hope to make it out there next summer. I haven’t been since I was 15.

Last week I was so awesome with my workouts. This week? Not so much so far. I’m trying. It’s a slow process. I even worked out at night a couple times last week. And the week before. I know, who am I?! This week I don’t see that happening. But, maybe. I don’t know.

I’m not dwelling on the lack of weight loss or anything like that anymore. When I’m ready, it will happen. I’m happy being me and happy in our house and happy I have a job and happy that I do exercise and that I’m healthy even though I’m overweight. I have family and friends that love me for me and that is really all that matters.  I don’t binge anymore, I just make poor food choices at times and I know that. I know I’m human and when the time is right, I lose the weight again. I know it. I know what to do and I’ll do it. When I’m ready.


I was incredibly happy to see this tonight.

Cynnamon is finally attempting to come out of hiding.  The poor thing has been hiding for almost a week. I guess it’s hard at almost 17 years old to get used to a new house after living in the same apartment for your whole life. But, tonight she seems to finally realized she’s in a safe place and it’s okay to come out and look around.

Tomorrow we go back to the apartment and clean up anything we left behind. I really don’t want to go back there, but I know we left a few things and the place could use a good vacuuming and mopping.  Plus, the husband needs to get his motorcycle out of the garage. I don’t want to go back there.


What a I really hope to do this weekend is get my home gym set up. If we can get the apartment all set (we are paid up until the end of April) I want to get the home gym set up on Sunday. My treadmill is set up, but the Bowflex isn’t and all my free weights are packed away.  I don’t have time to do all the things I want to do. The husband leaves in a week and I want to spend as much time with him as possible.


I’ve now gone 26 days binge free thanks to Brain Over Binge. I’ve never been so proud of myself. Not even when I lost 130 pounds or when I ran my half marathon.  Now, I’m reading another book called Diet Recovery 2. I’m it’s also opening my eyes and I’m hoping it will end my diet struggles. I need to just be ME again. Since I stopped binging and worrying about food, I’ve been the happiest I’ve been in a very long time.


What are you most proud of?

Weekend plans?

Time to get back on the wagon

My Mom will most likely be here in two weeks. She is leaving Arizona on April 30th (the 29th if she can push it up a day) and I have yet to get the in-law apartment cleaned up. It needs a good carpet cleaning and dusting for sure.  The husband leaves for Texas on May 3rd (I’m not going this time around) and I’ll be alone when my Mom arrives, so I want to make everything looks great.

So far my favorite thing to do when I get home and have the house to myself is do a little cleaning. We’ve only “officially” been here for 5 days, but I like the fact that I’m not sitting in front of the tv and laptop like I was in the apartment. And as soon as we can, we’re going to start getting the yard cleaned up. It’s full of sticks and needs a good healthy clean up. Probably not until the middle of May and once the husband comes back from his work trip.

May 14th the husband and I will be celebrating our 20th anniversary together so that is a big deal. We started dating on May 14th, 1993. We’re old.

I’m ready to jump back into the whole losing weight thing now that we’ve moved and are trying to settle in. I haven’t gained anything. The scale is still packed, but it’s time to get serious again. I have the counter space and the room to start preparing my meals again. So bring it.

I haven’t run since Sunday, so I am going to try and hit the gym tomorrow morning. Cross your fingers for me. I need to get some weight lifting in.

I’m also addicted to the new show “Hannibal”. It’s so freaky.

What new show do you love this season?

Last work out?


Home sweet home

Saturday was moving day. By 10pm Saturday night the husband and I were passed out on the bed exhausted. But, we’re here!! It’s so quiet in the house. No one stomping above us or slamming of doors below us.  It’s pretty awesome.

I brought the cats over the morning of the move. Both Molly and Bradley have adjusted pretty quickly. Cynnamon not so much. She is sulking in the master bedroom and freaks if you try to bring her out. I brought food in there for her because  I haven’t seen her eat.

Here is Bradley (from my Instagram) this evening when I got home from work tonight:

We still have to unpack and get things straightened out, but we’re here!

I’m finished reading Brain Over Binge. What an amazing book! And such an eyeopener.  And I haven’t binged in 22 days. I’m so happy and proud of myself.

What did you do this weekend?

Have you ever moved? Do your pets handle it okay?


Packing it all up

Ran 3.5 miles today. I was going to do some weights after, but I found that I only have 8, 10, and 15 pound weights. They are a little too heavy for me right now. I need to pick up some 5 or 6 pound weights sometime this weekend. The Bowflex is out of commission until we move into the house.

I am not a fan of packing. If I could, I would pay someone to pack up all my stuff. I don’t like it. I understand that it’s worth it and we’re moving int our house (OUR HOUSE!) but it’s so time consuming. I found some cute pictures of the husband and I from 2002-2004. I was super skinny lean in some of them. I do miss those days, but right now I’m just learning to love myself and take care of myself the right way.

I’ve divorced my scale.  I’m not letting it rule my world anymore and I feel so free because of it. When we move into the house I’m going to put into a closest and leave it there. I’m going to go on how my clothes fit and how I feel. That’s that.

Do you have a scale? Do you weigh yourself?

When was the last time you moved?

Hope on over to visit Stuft Mama. She’s giving away some Buffalo Jerky. Don’t worry, I’m going to win it, but you can try and win, too.
