Whew! I am right in the midst of the final stages of packing. I hate this limbo stage of wanting everything to be packed but still needing to use some things, but my sister suggested pretending I was staying in a hotel and only keeping out what I’d need there. That has helped me figure out what to pack, and I only have about half my closet left to go! The kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom are all done, so I’m really getting there. I also sold several things on Craig’s List last night, with just one table left to go that I have someone coming to look at tonight, so I am feeling pretty good about my progress! Somehow, the move is THIS FRIDAY and I actually get my keys Thursday night! It seemed so far away for a while, but all of a sudden, its here!

I saw this post on Tina’s blog right after we got back from the Healthy Living Summit, and I thought it was cute and have had it on my list to do ever since. Since I am super busy getting myself ready to move, I figured this quickie post would be perfect for today. Enjoy!

5 Words to Describe Myself

    • Determined
    • Sarcastic
    • Optimistic
    • Passionate
    • Outgoing

3 Things I’m Most Proud of Accomplishing

2 Favorite Workouts

    • Running Intervals (2 min fast, 2 min recovery for 20-30 mins total. Great workout in such a short time!)
    • The Shred – same reason for above. Quick, but super effective workout.

1 Thing to Expect from my Blog

    • Variety and authenticity. I try to post about a lot of different things and hope you come here NOT knowing what to expect day after day! And, though some things do take a while for me to come out and talk about (like coming clean about my debt), I try to show the true struggles that I face after having lost a significant amount of weight and now how I struggle to maintain the loss. Sometimes it’s easier, sometimes it’s less so, but I always try to be real on here and show you that while I am certainly not perfect in any way, shape, or form, I somehow manage to stay on top of this journey. =)

Tell me… your 4 favorite foods and/or 3 things you’re proud of!

    Hi Beth, I’m so glad I found your blog. Love posts like this and getting to know you better. 4 favorite foods? Yikes…hard to narrow down, but off the top of my head, really sharp cheese, warm bread, just picked tomatoes with pesto and spicy tuna rolls. Have a fantastic Tuesday. Hang in there, this time next week you’ll be all moved in to your new place!

    4 favorite foods: ice cream, oatmeal, tuna and salmon sushi (with wasabi!), blueberries. I seriously have 17 pounds of blueberries in my freezer right now…we went blueberry picking twice this summer, so I could stock up for the winter months. They’re so much better than the frozen ones you can buy at the store!

    I like that you’re real here because it helps everyone who is struggling, or celebrating, relate to you in a real way! Thanks for being open!
