I remember you. We're going to get to know each other a little better here in the upcoming weeks. I've been MIA for a bit, but I'm back in full effect.
I made a little time to get my big butt (literally) to the gym this morning. I struggled through a solo workout and gave my lungs a chance to readjust to actual physical activity that does not involved carrying boxes up and down a very narrow set of stairs.
I know you've all been waiting with bated breath for pics of my new place, so here we go.
The most important room in the house, to start.
Kitchen view from Living room. Look at all that space.
Organization corner. There's limited cupboard space so I had to finagle some extra storage thingees. Thanks to Jessica for the Bakers Rack which houses all of my kitchen gadgets!
My office [slash] emergency guest room. The futon is really more for the dog than anything else. He likes to curl up while I work.
The bathroom. Weird to take pictures of, but trying to give you the full view.
It's a nice space. The shower is amazing.
So that's that. This is where I live now. It's pretty cozy, but still feels weird. I'm happy to have everything set up and organized, but it still just doesn't feel like home. I'm continuing to have a positive attitude about the end of my relationship, but for the most part it's just very very sad. Justin and I are on day 2 of our 30 Days of No Contact project. It's hard, but the space will do us a lot of good.
In actual weight loss news: I am breaking the scale fast tomorrow night at my Weight Watchers meeting. Now ladies (and gents), I have been off plan for about 3 weeks, having spurts of not eating all day, or eating all day. Having cake for breakfast, forgetting what the gym looks like, etc. My emotional response to all the things going on manifested itself physically.
I'm ready to be back on track and that starts with weighing in and knowing where I am. I'm nervous, I won't lie. I know I'm up there, but I'm ready for the challenge. I started tracking again today, so I'm laying down the foundation once again.
I'm excited to start getting familiar with all of your blogs again. I have been completely ignoring this community. I'm a bad neighbor. I promise I'll make it up to you somehow.
