SP Premium


New everything

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I think it has been months since I have been active on SP and so much has changed! I got married in June and moved from Minnesota to North Carolina for my husband's job. So pretty much every aspect of my life has changed. I have been in North Carolina for a little over a week now and we are mostly unpacked and settled. I am a bit homesick but mostly I miss working. I am telecommuting part time for my old Minnesota job so I work some at home. But I am surprised how lonely and isolated I feel. I have been applying for jobs but this economy may make my job search a little longer than I would like it to be. I have not been eating great but it is hard to prepare healthy meals when your kitchen is in boxes. Now that we are pretty much unpacked I have started making more homemade wholesome food. I made overnight oats for the first time this morning (made famous by Tina on CarrotsnCake.com). Basically quick oats and soy milk in the fridge overnight and topped it this morning with some cinnamon, dried fruit, and peanut butter. I was skeptical but I LOVED it! So cool and creamy and I realized the reason I grumble about oatmeal is because I am not crazy about it hot, loved it cool. Exercising is going to be especially tricky as I sold my bike :( and it is hot and muggy here. But I weighed myself the other day and I am maintaining my weight loss so I was thrilled that by some miracle I don't have any additional weight to lose. So over the next few weeks I need to get in the habit of planning out meals and eating better. Eating junk has made me feel like a slug! Anyhoo, that is where I am at in a not-so-brief nutshell. :)

    Glad you are back. Hope you find new things in N. Carolina that will help you enjoy your wellness journey there! Best part of not working is all that extra time to exercise (ha ha).
