Moving Stinks!

Ok, so this post should be my weight loss update! However, after 11 days of moving, this is how my “die-t” has gone to crap ….

fast food, frozen pizza, chips on the run … Why?!?

Simply because I couldn’t find our dishes in the mound of boxes and because for 11 straight days I have barely stopped moving / cleaning / purging (my household junk not my stomach contents!) etc for more than 15 minutes at a time … until now!

And, if I hear someone ask me why I didn’t mark the box contents on the outside of the box one more time, I think I may run away and leave them all this junk we have collected over the past 20+ some odd years! 😉

It wouldn’t be so bad if we moved to a place that was roughly the size of our old townhouse. But, we had the bright idea to downsize to someplace smaller now that my older two boys have gotten engaged and moved out. It’s roughly 1/2 the size of our other house AND no garage! How do people survive without a garage? My car has never seen the inside of one, but it is a great place to store all of my treasures!

So, today, as the dust has settled a slight amount, I decided to get back on the scale (yes, I can find it!) Unfortunately, I found myself back into the 180’s once again! I guess the 500 THOUSAND times I have gone up and down the stairs each and every day carrying loaded boxes has not been enough to keep me heading in the right direction. I also think it’s kind of ironic that when I stop taking care of me in one way (ie eating right & exercise), other areas of my life suffer, too. Like …

I “forget” to brush my teeth 2 or 3 times a day (Shh! Don’t tell my hygienist!)

Or I forget to wash my face before bedtime.

Or, I simply don’t care that I look like Medusa (as my son so lovingly called me!).

So, I MUST get my life and myself back under control once again!


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.

  1. I hadn’t seen a post from you in so long I thought you got lost under a pile of boxes somewhere! Glad you survived your move. All that lifting and moving, it’s just not fair that you didn’t lose a couple pounds, but you’re back on track now, you’ll probably bounce right back. Last time I gained I ended up losing more than normal the following week, so you just never know. Wish I lived closer, I’d give you a hand, I need a change of scenery! Hope you’re getting settled!
