I know I haven't written every day and it's been quite a while, but I've been trying to keep up with posting my food on most days. If you're interested in knowing what I'm eating every day or more specifically what brands I'm eating... Add me on kayciechristine is my username.

Life has been pretty wonderful, as of late. I've been busy pretty much constantly (which isn't so wonderful) between interning 4 days of the week, going to class 2 days of the week, Zumba at least once a week, walking whenever I can, and on top of that squeezing in time with Husband and the pooch. I've gotta say, though, that even though my days have been abnormally hectic this semester, I am feeling happier than I have in quite a while. I'm sure it's probably a combination of a variety of things, so I can't pinpoint it to just one.
  • I finally feel like the friendships I am maintaining right now are solid and will last a lifetime. For now I'm choosing to focus on the people who bring positivity in my life and distance myself from those who will bring me down. That being said, I pinned a quote earlier that I thought fit my situation perfectly. It said, 
  • My weight loss is slowly but steadily on the right track, once again. This past Friday at weigh-in, I had finally reached and gone just passed my lowest weight since beginning this journey: 235.4 lbs. It feels good to be back to where I was before I gained back 15 lbs over the last few months. It's all forward movement from here! I'm purposefully moving, staying mostly on track with my diet, and finding motivation in a variety of people and places. I have been truly blessed by all of the support that's been given to me. 
  • My home is clean. I know this is a silly thing to rejoice, but since we moved here and I've been in grad school, maintaining a household has been the furthest thing on my list of priorities. About two months ago I had a meltdown and we decided to quite neglecting this home we've been blessed with and start taking care of it more thoroughly. We made chore sheets and decided to each clean for at least 15 minutes every day. Well, that lasted about a week, ha. But ever since then we've both kept up our ends of the deal: He cleans the kitchen and maintains the basement and yard and I make sure the living room, dining room, bathroom, and bedroom stay clean. I don't know why it took us so long to figure this out, but it's heaven. Also, last week we found a portable dishwasher at a yard sale for ten dollars. No, I'm not kidding. So, of course, we bought it... And it has made cleaning the kitchen so much easier. I don't know how we went so long without one, but this is wonderful. 
Okay, so it sounds kinda boring when I type it out, but it makes me happy so I can't complain.Thanks for stickin' with me on this crazy journey and for inspiring and encouraging me along the way. I know I wouldn't be 55 lbs lighter right now without all of your support!

'Night y'all!
