Life in List Form.

1. Saturday morning did not go as planned. I woke up with a very swollen eye, freaked out, and Garth took me to the doctor. I found out after 27 years of being allergy-free, I know have allergies. Awesome. The swelling is gone, but I have to wear my glasses and take eye drops twice a day.

2. We found our dream house last week while house hunting. It's at the top of our price range and it does not have much of a backyard so we feel a bit anxious about it. We are going to look at some more houses this week and continue to think things over.

3. I turn in my Saturn Ion this week. It was the first car I ever bought and I loved that car so it's a bit sentimental for me. That being said, I am VERY excited for my new car!

4. We decided to lease again because it is just easier with buying a house soon. We decided on the Chevy Malibu and I'm very excited about it!

5. I haven't weighed myself in two months and finally did and found I had gained ten pounds. TEN! What the heck?!

6. I have started doing the Shred again, walking on my lunch breaks, counting calories, and I have lost five pounds and hope to lose another two or three this week.

7. I am more determined than ever to get to my goal weight now. I was five pounds away from it before but this time I will get there. I'll be keeping you posted!

8. My cousin's bridal shower was yesterday and it was so good to see her, as well as my aunts and cousins. Fun times.

9. I still love my job. I work with great people and I enjoy what I do. This Friday we have a retreat on Lake Michigan with the co-workers and their families. It should be a good time!

I rented a Malibu once and loved it. What a great car.

Good luck with the continued house hunt.

Yeah, I just try not to weigh myself. It's depressing.

I just want to know when we'll be able to eat whatever we want and not gain weight. Someone, please tell me. LOL

I feel you, it's been rough trying to maintain, I'm turning over a new leaf and inspiration for weight loss myself! Good luck, with every small and big event you have going on - all so exciting!

That stinks about the allergies...you'd think by this point in life you'd be outta the woods. guess not!

How exciting about the new car!

I'm sorry to hear about your allergies! How weird that you just started experiencing.

That retreat for works sounds so great! I'm glad you still loved your job :-)

My eye used to do that occasionally! So weird and annoying for an allergic reaction!

Stupid allergies.
They are haunting me too.

You go girl with the Shred! You can do it!

YAY for a new ride!!! I'm sending you prayers on the house. Girl I feel you on the weight stuff. I pack on the pounds the second I take a break. Not good. But I think you look absolutely fabulous!!! XOXO

Good luck with the house hunting. Hope your dream house -- whether it be this house or another one -- works out for you and Garth.

I hate the scale. For some reason, I just can't hit my goal weight. Your encouraging words may just motivate me to try again too! Good luck!
