Weekend Recap

I feel like a broken record at this point. Life is nuts. End of story.

In all honesty, last week finally feels like our turning point around the house. We are beginning to see things come together and it is a great feeling. I'd love to be able to tell y'all that my eating has been fabulous and I have tons of weight loss progress, but unfortunately that would be a complete lie.

Do you know how tough it is to lose weight when you cannot cook meals at home very easily?

I've told myself that this is a period in my life that weight loss is not at the top of my priorities list. I have maintained give or take five pounds so it hasn't spiraled out of control. I've really struggled with accepting that right now. Everything in me wants to rededicate, but I am worn out. I work full time, I have a husband and a child, and we are in the middle of a massive home renovation. It's truly exhausting.

This weekend we got the cable and internet hooked up at the new house. I also was able to fully unpack and set up my kitchen. I feel like this week will finally let me get back on track! It's so tough planning meals when you have half of your kitchen packed in boxes.

My husband is beyond thrilled to be able to watch TV. Caleb and I haven't missed it very much at all. I've mostly missed Pinterest and blogging more frequently. Hopefully I can squeeze in more now that the internet is installed.

The boys' bunk bed is assembled. Our TV's are almost installed. The trim is being installed. We are slowly getting there. I have a huge pile of donation items, but I can see some of our garage floor finally. Our old home is under contract and finally in underwriting. Things are definitely moving in the right direction. 

We have family visiting this coming weekend so we have just a few more days to wrap some of these projects before we take a break. My stepchildren arrive next week and we are determined to not work on projects while they are with us. Bring on summer! Bring on the boating, cookouts, and beach!

We may be getting a later start, but we are most definitely going to enjoy it. Now if I can just figure out how to lose weight in the middle of all this....


  1. Oh lady, I hear you! We're pretty much living parallel lives right now (selling one home, living in/reno'ing another, trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle amidst the chaos, etc.) It's all so challenging! I'm trying to be gentle with myself as well. I feel like crap between all the go-go-go and stress and missing out on the gym and of course eating tons of junk. We've had way more take-out than is usual for us and what we can manage to throw together is quick fixes and lots of sandwiches. I guess the important thing is everyone is fed at least! I just keep reminding myself it won't be like this forever, I don't know if I believe myself at this point, but it's what I keep saying ;) Hang in there! There will be time to refocus and rededicate later!

    1. I'm so glad you totally "get it" and I'm not alone! I am so ready for things to slow down too!

  2. You have done an amazing job with your weight loss. I know it has been difficult to stay on top of things with the move and everything.. but like you said.. Enjoy these next few weeks with the kids.

    Love you sweet girl!
