Good morning loves! It’s finally the end of the week…and it’s been a very long few weeks for me here.
So I wanted to just pop in, say hi, and let you guys know what’s been up. Because at the end of the day, I really do enjoy blogging, and I love being able to share my experiences with you guys.
At the beginning of this month, Zach and I moved into our new house. It’s a cute little cottage style house, with 3 small bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It’s small, but has an overall coziness to it. It even has a large backyard for the pups to run and play in, and for future bonfire get togethers in the cooler months. It’ll be the first house that we’ve rented that just has our names on the lease.
Geeks who’ve moved before know what a struggle it is, and how energy-depleting it can be to move. As a result, my life has basically consisted of moving belongings, unpacking said belongings, and work. It’s caused a lot of stress…..and stress eating. And the fact that we live closer than ever to a Taco Bell didn’t help my case.
So now that it’s towards the end of the month we have mostly everything settled in. And now, I’ve realized that I went from being 150/155 pounds to a whopping 160 pounds. Which in reality isn’t bad. I don’t look nor am I actually overweight. Just a little rounder and softer in some areas. Honestly it wouldn’t be such an issue except for the fact that only 2 months ago I caved and bought new bras and was able to find jeans that fit properly. Needless to say, I am at the point where almost all of my clothes are just a tad too snug for my liking.
This is where the change starts. Right now. With my blog, my business that I’m struggling to start, my health, fitness….my life. For too long have I allowed my stress and emotions control me and my life choices.
I’ve already started the process by doing some research on healthier eating strategies, and I’ve been using my resources to track my goals. So far I’ve been showing small improvements with keeping to a fairly healthy eating plan (with of course one or two treats here and there, in moderation). My main goal is to not only get to a better and healthier weight by the end of the year, but to truly start eating better and working out and taking care of my body and mind.
I won’t be posting too much of the fitness/diet stuff here, just because I feel like it generally doesn’t fit with what I’ve got going on here. So I’m planning on sharing most of my journey through Instagram, with the hashtag #kmsweightlosschallenge. Obviously it’s not all about weightloss, but it’s what inspired me to make a true change in my lifestyle. I’ll be making small updates in my monthly updates here, just to be able to go into a little bit more detail when I feel it’s needed.
