Happy Healthy Monday

Well we have decided to finally get the house ready to sell and find something bigger. Which I have already found a house I love, from pictures, but we are no where close to even being ready. The house I like has been on the market already for 6 months so I hope it will be for a couple more so I can go look at it. If I look at it now I will really fall in love with it and be heartbroken when I can’t have it. So this weekend I was busy cleaning, throwing stuff out, and started painting the bathroom.  Hopefully this week I will get to painting the kitchen once the bathroom is done.

As for weight loss, not the best week but did manage to lost 1lbs so I am down a total of 10 in about 2 months. I will take it. I really need to bring my lunch with me on a more constant basis.  SO Subway is in order today I think.  I don’t think I will have much time for the gym because I am using all the spare time I have to get the house ready. But that in itself is a workout. LOL

Hope you all have a good day!
