Just When You Think Everything's Going Your Way...

Life throws you a curve ball...

Yesterday my husband got laid off due to budget cuts where we work. Seems like we were smooth sailing along, I was getting back into the groove of working out, we were excited about our future...and suddenly, without warning, we got this bomb shell dropped on us.


But, I'm trying to stay positive, you know, seeing the glass half full? And I have many reasons to be that way. Thank goodness we sold the house and I make enough money that I can cover all the bills under my paycheck alone. Also, Aaron should be able to qualify for unemployment no problem.

This could very well turn into a big oppurtonity for us. He isn't just going to look for jobs around here, but nationwide. I am also going to start looking (hope my HR doesn't read my blog). There are many places we'd be interested in living, and there are only so many times in your life you can change the state in which you live.

After all this happened yesterday I fell off the wagon for a little bit. I had 3 pieces of pepperoni pizza. "Boooo! Hssssss!" Then I went to the grocery store and got some vanilla ice cream. But, I am so thankful for this, Aaron looked at me and said, "Let's not use this as an excuse to be unhealthy, let's do the opposite."

So I still had the ice cream, but only one serving of it. And I mean the REAL 1 serving that is like 1/4 of a cup!

This morning I felt much better, though I didn't get up and do the elliptical, because let's face it people, Aaron and I both needed some hug time.

So, life is crazy. I'm trying not to feel so weirded out that I stop making progress. I'm excited at the prospect of changing up our lives! And wouldn't it be great if I could be a healthy, maybe even thin me when that happens?

Hope everyone is doing well.
