Hey everyone!

Last time I updated anyone with a blog, we were giving up on the house searching. We were getting nowhere, and we were having issues with the whole financing thing. One day I logged on to the web page that deals with realty in my area, not really expecting much at all, and we ended up viewing and buying a little place at a majorly reduced price on the end of a park, with no neighbors except one to the back side of us. We have had a million little problems, and have been doing nothing but work to the place, but the price was right and we will always have a home now.

We don't have the internet yet though, so I haven't been able to be a very active part of Sparkpeople or any of the groups that I am a member of. I'm so sorry to anyone and everyone who I've let down or not been there to support in their times of need. I've had all of you in my thoughts, and I have wanted, many times, to post random comments and goodies on all of your walls. Not having had the internet for so long has certainly made for a busier life. (LOL) I have procrastinated far less, and have accomplished far more. Life is calm, drama wise...

We will have the internet soon, but in the meantime, I'm not really all that worried.

I am going to rethink my goals and my fitness/nutrition plan. I have to, because since I haven't had the internet I haven't stuck to much of any plan. I haven't lost any weight, but I haven't gained any either, which is a really good thing. I'm really glad that I haven't fallen back into old habits. I've tried to keep on a fitness plan, but I get really bored. No internet means no music, no workout videos and no support and without it I tend to forget all about my workouts for a couple days at a time.

First of all, my nutrition goals are to keep under 1900 calories a day for the next few months. I am going to start doing a meal plan again, but not until I can get my calorie intake under control. Seriously. I haven't counted the amount of calories I've eaten in probably a month. I have also had way too much fast food. Way way waaayy too much.

My new fitness goal is a little more broad. I want to do 600 workouts before I turn 30. There were 840 days left when I decided that goal, and I've done 4 workouts so far. I know that 600 workouts probably seems like a laughable goal, but to that I say 'meh' because I am going to do it. I have 800 and some days left until I am 30 years old, and I'm not going to be this overweight when I get there. I'm not. I know, everyone says things like that, but I'm going to kick this up a notch... internet or none.

I really don't have much for a weight loss goal right now. I'm still plateaued at the same weight I have been for a year. Maybe it's not even a plateau, maybe this is just me being too lazy and not driven enough to change anything. I honestly don't know what to say, but I'm going to give it a go.

Weight today: 338.8 (up from yesterday even!!)
Goal weight for next month: 332.8, loss of 6.0 pounds (Sept 29th)

I'll keep you posted on that ;) lol.

---- Anyways... I'd best go, it's getting really late and I'm at my Dad's, 100km from home. Good night everyone. I miss you all so much!

    So nice to hear from you and that you have moved :D Sounds like a very nice place and will be even better once you get it all sorted out including your internet. Now you've got the major thing sorted you can concentrate on getting back on track and you can so do this. I know you can, we know you can x

    Yay for your new place!!! Did you get the plumbing situation taken care of?

    Also: maintaining a weight loss is a BIG DEAL, especially one that large. So don't beat yourself up. I have confidence in you. You will find a way to break that plateau!
