teacher-bee-in-the-sea :  I could’ve stopped reading at “did 4 loads of laundry” because I’d need a nap after doing all that work! ๐Ÿ™‚

I cleaned the downstairs, cooked dinner (I hate cooking, so this is big), and am currently waiting on Fiance to get home before turning on The Bachelor. And yeah, he’s taking his sweet time and I’m so tempted to go ahead and fire it up! #selfcontrol

Whew, you go girl!! 

Im proud of me and Darling Husband because we’ve only ate out 1 time this year and we didn’t even pay for it..which is HUGE compared to how much we were spending a month. We’ve been doing a healthy challenge and eating so well and have saved so much money in the mean time! We finished our 24 day challenge last Wednesday and I lost 5lbs and 13.25 inches and his jeans don’t fit anymore haha! I’m 5 feet flat so those 5lbs definitely show!! 

The downside to cooking all the damn time is all the dishes. I just spent 2 hours cleaning the kitchen and now I have some hopefully yummy soup on the stove! 

I also hiked the mountain in the freezing temps this morning with my friend who is having a hip replacement tomorrow, idk how she does it! And then I went straight to the gym with Darling Husband. I haven’t missed a Monday yet!

Heres my progress pics- I’m so excited!!

I need this, I’ve actually had a really rough day; I turned down a job offer without knowing for certain that my current contract will be renewed in two months. It’s likely that I will get the extension but not concrete yet, but I am absolutely punishing myself for being so irresponsible. So tonight I made a nice dinner and cleaned the apartment top to bottom, I think to prove to myself that I’m not lazy. So, thanks for posting because I’m going to try to turn my mindset around on this and toot my own horn about how clean my house currently is and how hard I’ve worked to (fingers crossed) earn that extension at work!

Also, your lesson sounds awesome, no joke!!

I diagnosed and repaired our washing machine with YouTube videos! I figured out what was wrong last week, ordered the parts, they came today and I was able to take it all apart, replace what was broken, and put it all back together! And it works great! We will hopefully get a new machine this year, but our old one is working much better for now!

I’ve stuck to my workout schedule (5 days a week) and diet for 3 weeks straight and I’m already down 7 lbs! I still have 68 more to go but I’m learning to celebrate the small achievements along the way ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow!  You look great!  The weight loss is totally obvious, but so is the improved muscle tone.  That gym time is really working for you!

I got the results back for my last accounting exam – 95%! I have three more to take before I get the full qualification but so far I’m on track for a distinction if I can keep it up. Thats huge for me, as I used to just wing it when it came to exams at school – I always passed but only just, this time I’ve revised as much as I can until I’m confident and it’s paying off!

hikingbride :  7 lb in 3 weeks is no small victory — that’s a great victory! Definitely worth celebrating!!


I’ve successfully made it through 2 rounds for a job in a really competitive field and have my final round later this week! It’s a big career shift for me and I really didn’t think I’d be taken seriously so am feeling really proud of myself for “keeping up with the big kids” ๐Ÿ˜€

Also about to finish a first draft of my final dissertation chapter! So close to being done I can almost taste it!!
