So I didn't quite make the 13lb benchmark by January. I missed the last 3 weigh ins. According to my scale I was up and down over the 3 weeks; when I went for my official weigh in yesterday I was down .2 lbs. At least its not a gain and I can still maintain my all loss book. I've been on "break" making brownies and Mexican food (Why not go for bust since I wasn't counting anyway) but now its time to get back on the horse.
I've kept my promise to myself and I joined the community center gym. I also went ahead and purchased Active Link to track my soon to be activity points. I'm still trying to figure out how to use it but I'm excited about the tool and hoping it will give me more incentive.
My team leader was nice in saying "don't worry about the past, that's last years weight."
Very true, I'm ready for the boost. I'd love to say I'm going to lose 2 lbs a week and be at my goal for next year but realistically I'm going to put it out there to shoot for a 1lb a week knowing there will be ups and downs. That will put me at a hopeful loss of 50 lbs!
So here's some other goings on for start of 2013.
As mentioned before we are moving! In 5 weeks and counting...Officially February 16. This has caused me some major stress in the past month but now things are settling down. Hubby officially got a new job. As of today his start date is January 21, but he's trying to get it bumped up to the 14th. Seeing they want him on a conference call that day, I think it's fair the payroll clock starts then. He'll be flying to Canada on the 21st and then to Atlanta to meet his new counter part on the 31st.
There was a lot of back and forth on the flight schedule but I'm happy to say He'll be able to go to the first fertility apt we have scheduled for January 24.
Now I've read the starter packet back and forth and still have no clue what we're going to discuss in that first appointment. But what I did find out is that we have to meet with a financial planner before we start any kind of treatment plan. I thought this was kind of funny because don't you need to know what your planning to do before you know how much its going to cost?
The house we are moving into, I believe was built in the 70's. Now my parents did some remodeling during the 20 years we lived there, but in the past 8 years the place has been screaming for a face lift. At bare minimum we need to paint and carpet the place. Gold, green and burgundy just AREN'T my colors! There is also a leak in the master bath the feeds into a wall that will need to be taken care of ASAP so I've spent WAY more time in hardware stores than I'd ever imagine. Why do I bring all this up? A dirty little word called Finance, it's looming over my head. We don't have the up front cash to fix the house and I refuse to borrow it from the bank of Mom, so we'll have to finance that on top of what I'd already figured we'd have to finance for the medical stuff.
Yes there are a lot of goings on in my head. On the funner side, I have my annual scrapper bowl coming up February 9 and I'm hosting book club in March. I've also added a knitting circle to my craft menagerie. Sprinkle in a few photo shoots and we've got a full spring line up.
I just want to say I appreciate all my "cheer-readers" out there. It mean's alot that you keep up with my silly stories and keep me encouraged to keep on my way.
