VQCI. (Very Quick Check In)
Hey beautiful bloggers!
Just doing a quick check in to let you know that the move went well. My new place is currently titled "Box City" and I'm running in to some speed bumps because I was allowed to move early. I currently don't have a fridge (but borrowed a miniature dorm sized one from a friend) or a working tub drain.
I'll be going back and forth between the "old house" and the "new place" for the next week or so just trying to get everything in order. I'll be unpacking for the rest of my life.
I'm also hideously embarrassed about the amount of clothing I own now. I literally got rid of an entire car full, and still filled an SUV with under-the-bed bags and garment bags and tubs of clothes. Sheesh. Sounds like maybe I should have a the-last-twenty clothing shop operating out of my closet!
It's amazing how much stuff you can acquire when you have a lot of room, or are willing to find the room. It's essentially like gaining weight. You want it, you'll make room for it. I want that delicious pistachio cannolli I enjoyed with a friend over lunch yesterday, so I had it, and my body will surely make room for it.
Probably on my ass.
I have made a solemn vow to my best workout buddy that I will be back in FULL EFFECT as of the first of the month. I know, I know. Why wait? Honestly, because I'm drained. Physically because of the move yesterday, and emotionally because I am giving up a very long term relationship, a lot of love and a lot of dependence. It's tough, I'm eating too much some days and eating too little most days. I have no idea where I am on the scale but that scale fast is over on the 2nd and I'll have to fess up. My guess is I'm firmly (and possibly very high) back in to the 150s. And you know what? That's just where I am right now.
It's been a weird, trying and crazy last couple of months. My jeans still fit, which means no matter how far gone I've gotten, I ate least haven't expanded to fill my own zip code again.
I'm excited to see where February will take me. I'll be the only person in control over my life.
A lot of healthy habits to form and re-form. Cooking, walking the dog excessively, working out, relaxing, being productive and enjoying my own company.
I'm terrified and excited all at once.
