Who Knew A Monday Could Be So Awesome?

by Kenlie Tiggeman on October 9, 2012

Yesterday was a long day, but I have no complaints.  When I woke up I didn’t feel well, but apart from a headache I’m fine now.  Whew.

Mondays are my new weigh-in day, and I think I like my meeting…a lot.  I was down 7.8 this week, and I’m feeling good about continuing this week.  I’ll be happy as long as the scale moves in the right direction.  I didn’t show big losses before, but they were fairly consistent.  For now, I’ll just concentrate on making good choices and adding one or two additional workouts this week.  Last week my goal was to work out every other day, and this week my goal is the same.    (Maybe I’ll even remember to update my workout and weight-loss logs soon.)

I also chose my actual apartment unit yesterday, and I’m excited about that.  Originally I was told that I could move in on October 12, but now it looks like I can’t move in until November 1.  The appliances have arrived, but the counter tops aren’t installed yet so they need a little more time.  Sigh…

I was disappointed to hear that I have to wait two more weeks to move in, but it’s actually okay because I’m still waiting on furniture to arrive.  I changed my mind when it was time to order so my sofa is olive green, and I bought this chair on sale from Target to match.  The chair has green in it so let’s hope it matches. ;)

And I chose a beige upholstered bed (that I can’t find in pictures) which will be covered with this bedding from Bed, Bath and Beyond.  The bedroom in this photo is much cooler and bigger than mine, but the bedding is the same.  You get the idea, right?

My life is moving in a healthy direction, and I like it.  I like the independence that I’ve gained over the last year or so, and I’m ready to look back and appreciate the positive changes I’ve made.

Weight-loss is important, but it’s not the only thing that’s important.  I’m happy…for a lot of reasons, and I’m thankful for my life.

What are you thankful for today?
