Settlement Day

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Dun dun duh! Doesn't settlement day sound bad, like judgement day or something?? Today is the day we go sign our lives away and buy a house. Finally! It feels like it's been such a long journey, and like we looked at hundreds of houses (okay, dozens, for real), but we've made it. I'll post pics soon. Because I have to take pics first.

But anyway, guess what I did this morning??


Girl look at the body! Ah! I worked out!

30 minutes on the treadmill, all walking, but I varied my speed and incline... basically I get bored on the treadmill. Then I did 80 squats while holding the 10# dumbbell, 2 sets of 5 pull ups with 140# resist (which is an improvement from the 150# I started with, anyway) and 10 leg-lift ab-worky thingys.

The fair is sadly over, and I ate too much fair food over the course of the three visits I made. Scrapple sandwich, beef kabob, gyro, Jenna's french fries (twice) and 2 deep-fried candy bars. But that's all over for the year.

Just in time for the carnival. A month-long festival of (strangely enough) the BEST hamburgers, soft-shell crab sandwichs, oyster fritters (not my thing but I have to mention them), cotton candy, funnel cakes, clam strips, candy apples, corn dogs, french fries and ice cream... and new this year, walking tacos, whatever the heck that is. I ate about half of what I listed above last night. Okay, not quite, but it felt awful afterward. I did manage to convince myself that I don't have to eat everything all in one night, it'll be there next time too. Not that I need any of it. But I make myself choose what bad things I can eat per visit, rather than gorging on everything I can at once.

So the gym this morning probably didn't even begin to compare to the calories consumed last night.

I did win a pillow for my hubby. I'm not a fan.


I'm a dork. No denial there.

    Yay! Congrats on the house! We call it a "closing" up here. Which sounds slightly less daunting:) Great work out too!!!
