Hi! So I guess I should update this at some point! The last two months have been absolutely insane. I have been keto off and on. I’ve lost some weight and seem to be stalled right now so I am about to jump back on. I am not upset about it, I have just been enjoying summer with my kiddo! 🙂
I had some health issues recently with my PCOS and that didn’t help the weight loss either so I am trying not to beat myself up over it. My hormones were flucuating wildly and made it hard to function some days let alone eat well and that’s okay. I’m learning to be okay with things like that.
I started a job! Currently part time but it’s very labor intensive and I love it. I can lift heavy things with ease now versus when I first started and struggled. It has helped tighten things up and I look smaller despite the scale not moving much.
What else? I notice I have been replacing my food (carbs/sugar) addiction with a spending addiction so today I took proactive steps to try and get that under control. I did the following:
.unsubscribed from all sale emails (used unroll.me! makes it so easy!)
.unfollowed companies that tempt me on instagram.
.closed my ebay account.
.removed my payment option of choice from paypal.
Hopefully that is a good start!
I have also been decluttering when I can. I have purged some clothes that no longer fit kiddo and I. I will be purging toys soon (school starts back up in just over a week!) so that’ll help things! I sold and traded some toys that I collected but don’t get attention. Honestly, they just sit in my closet and what good is that?
I have also been doing more creative things! My roommate and I like to go curb shopping on trash night. We have found some great things (like new ikea chairs, an ikea table, poker table, vintage leather tufted chair, courting bench, cute 90s kid shelf, headboard). So I recently took the headboard and gave it an amazing turquoise makeover.
I also have been working on a denim jacket and decorating it. Went a little crazy spending money on patches & pins so I need to watch that aspect of it but it’s been so fun and relaxing!
OH! And I recently went to goodwill and found some awesome cheap frames and made a gallery art wall of prints and original art I have. I love it!!
I am ready for school to start back up so I can have day adventures in DC. I am so ready for them!!
