Fixer uppers can be fun. Especially when you can make it your own. Plus think of the exercise you will get while fixing it up.

Crossing my fingers with the house! Will be fun to truly make it your own, I think.

Hoping that things work out with the house. Wow $40K is a big drop - that is alot of rennos.

No Atkins meals at the Walmart in Vernon (where I live) but I'm happy that they carry the shakes.

Yesterday I swear was the longest 8 hours of my life I think the phone rang like twice! Last month after week 1 we had 20 new cars now we have 2! My boss said Jan and Feb tend to be slow months so I am in for torture I like chaos!

My scale moved again I cannot believe it! I got my blinders on and I am going to get under 200 pounds again and stay there!

Hey, Amber. Happy New Year, woman!

It's a new year, girl...embrace it! Start your list today of all the positive changes and adventures you have to look forward to.

Starting with that new house that you guys are hoping to buy...all the possibilities to decorate and make improvements that reflect YOUR perfect style and personality...burn some cals, learn new skills with projects, provide a distraction from mindless munching....ah, the possibilities!

Excited for you.

Hope this year brings you much happiness.

Hey T always good to see you around here! I know this house has me jazzed all the projects to do and the outside yard to plant, I sure hope we get in before Spring!

So the seller accepted our offer now his banks have to accept everything but it is a real good sign he didnt counter and he is moving ahead with getting them everything, I told Tony we waited so long I think this will go better than we hoped!

Let me tell you packing burns calories I worked all day pulling lifting up and down the steps I am beat, but we got a lot done, now that I have something to be hopeful about it really lit a fire under my belt, and duh I forgot how good it feels to be in control!

Now my trainer is really sick, he had to have someone else teach bootcamp today so no meeting with him tomorrow, but that is oK Mom is coming and we are going to tackle Bobbys room, LOL

Man we worked this weekend almost the entire basement including the rock shop and Bobby's room, I should have taken a picture of the trash outside, when they say unlimited trash they are going to be busy!

Biggest Loser- Jillian is back, yeah!!! I love some tough love, I love what they are doing with the kids, and I am trying to find someone I like on there! You notice some of the men look like they are going to be ripped even at 400 pounds the one older guy youc an tell has a nice body under there! And Dolvett I just love his smile!! I stayed awake til 11:00 it was a miracle, but I need the inspiration! Had 1/2 glass of wine last night but was good all weekend! I am ready to get into the teens this weekend, which I have not seen since June!!

I love the motivation, brutal though it is. It seems to be what these guys need.

Glad the packing is coming along, Amber. It is such an awful job!

Hope the week is busy at work for you.

Only one more dinner out on Tuesday and then all of the company is gone. I still want to lose about five pounds more to have a nice cushion.

Off to hand therapy...

Hugs

Cindy I always forget you are in Canada!!!!

And Christine OMG the basement was the worst now I feel like we are 30% done, I am so glad for Tony I look at everything with no clue where to start and he directs me, do this, then do that, and he helps me by putting boxes together, and has them ready, he is a dream I told him I would be so completely overwhelmed without him!

I tend to keep crap, and it feels good getting rid of stuff!!!! I determined our homes are like our wardrobes, we wear 20% of our stuff 80% of the time, sort of like the house we use 20% of it 100% of the time, and the rest we freaking store!
