life goes on

So as the title says life is going. I am still looking to find a job, although not as hard as I should be. We are feeling more settled in the house, all of the little fixes are done and now we have to start saving for the big jobs. Right now our bedroom is in the dining room and our upstairs is unused until we get the drywalling done.

My 28th birthday is coming up August 11th and I am asking for a bike. We really don't have the money but I fell in love with a beautiful pink Schwinn cruiser while picking up groceries at Walmart the other day. I have been wanting a bike for a couple of years now. Before now we were in a third floor apartment with no room for bike storage but now we have a garage!! I think of all presents this is at least a productive one. We are also now on a great road for biking so that is a plus.

Once I get my bike all I need is to convince the husband that he needs a bike!

I'm back.

Hi guys. I am now living in the new house, in the new town, and looking for a new job. I have been living here for almost 2 weeks without a fridge or stove so needless to say eating has not been good. We have been eating a lot of dollar menu fast food. If you visited by house blog you can see I have been very busy renovating on a budget. That means a lot of activity.

The husband and I have decided that once the fridge and stove are in we are back to healthy eating. It will be a challenge with such a tight food budget but I think with a little planning I can make it work. We did buy a small charcoal grill which will make some yummy and healthy food.

The new stove and fridge are dream items for me. Our last apartment had a fridge that wouldn't even keep popsicles frozen and produce barely stood a chance 2 days after purchase. Our old stove burnt everything on the outside and left it uncooked on the inside. I feel really good that we got the appliances that we really wanted not just what was cheapest. I am very excited to see my stainless steel beautiful appliances. I had planned on purchasing an inexpensive glass top electric stove but ended up going with an upgraded version with a larger burner option and is self cleaning. I am so excited for my side by side fridge with ice and water in the door which we got $500 under the retail price due to the fact that it is the floor model. I cannot wait!

So while I do not plan on jumping on any specific plan (like ww or calorie count) but rather to eat foods that are less processed and watching my portions. I think that that will be a great start. I have to say I am feeling really motivated by my fellow health bloggers like Andrea Kerry and Sheryl I am just not feeling healthy right now and I miss how I felt 20lbs ago. I was so happy and proud. I was really building myself back up and enjoying life. I was loving the new clothes I could wear and I miss having more positive shopping experiences. I love clothes.

So that is where I am right now, ready to make some change.
