We got word yesterday that the appraisal came back good. We don’t know how much it appraised for – we only know it was good enough for the loan to go through as is!
On we move to closing(s) – The Grandville house is scheduled to close on May 18th or sooner. I guess, they can ask us to pull it in, but it has to be done by the 18th. Our Florida home will close on May 22nd. We are having an open house on the 19th for friends and family to stop in and see us before we go 🙂 That is going to be a bittersweet day!
Here are all the items I am tracking on my countdown app:
The New Stage in Life!!!! – It is almost a year since John left his big corporate PITA Job. Look at all of the things we have done in this past 365 Day. Hell, we took a trip to Hawaii, John left his job, we bought property in Florida, we are building one house and have purchased another. We sold our Michigan home and the list seems to just go on and on 🙂 365 days is NOT that long ago!
On May 31st John will be leaving his job again 🙂 ON June 2nd we are heading out and I will spend my 50th Birthday IN Florida. That is funny because I was telling John last summer “I want to be in Florida by my 50th birthday” and lookie here LOL If you want something – speak it out loud and work towards it. It will happen.
On the diet/exercise front – it’s been a rough week(end) LOL I did soooo good right up until Friday when I changed my mind about how I was going to move forward. Then it turned into a shit-show. And then when we got the news about the appraisal yesterday, I decided it was finally time to celebrate and we went out to dinner. Our 29th wedding anniversary is this Saturday, but with my new plans we will not be going out for that – so last night was our anniversary and home sale celebration all in one. I woke up feeling like SHIT too. I only had one margarita, it was not an alcohol hangover it was a BS food hangover 😫
I had already planned to start fasting this week so I kind of gave myself permission to eat like shit yesterday and today. I am starting a 48 hour fast after dinner tonight. I will not eat solid food again until Thursday night or Friday morning and then nothing major. Just enough to make my brain happy so I can start my next fast. I will be taking accountability pictures for the Facebook fasting group I am in so I can post them here too at some point. They, unfortunately, want you in as little as possible so you can’t hide your fat LOL or fake results.
I don’t want to go to Florida and be a fat old lady. I want to be thin and comfortable walking along the Gulf in my bikini! I want to turn heads at 50! Is that bad? I don’t think so. I think we all want to feel attractive. The main head I want to turn is my hubbies and I do! But I know it will be even more so when my muffin top is gone 🙂
OK, that is all I have for now – Later this week I will post my bikini /accountability pictures.
The scale was 137 yesterday – I will weigh myself in the morning. Based on the way my belly feels it might be very close to 140 AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I have faith that I will get this all under control and beak my anxiety/food issues with the fasting. And honestly if I am fasting, I won’t be drinking – so two-fold! I have been very good about that actually. No longer a nightly event. OK
You, go, have a great day!!!!!
I will too!
