October 17th-21st, 2016: Moving In & Keeping Moving

Well it has officially been the longest week of my life! We closed on our new home on Monday. And then the chaos began. Lol. We had no plumbing for our dishwasher. The person who did the electric work for the previous owners ran the outlet for the stove in the Utility room and the outlet for the Dryer in the kitchen. So my good ole' buddy ole' pal, Barb and I swapped them out. It was far from easy. Lol. Especially since the outlet was put in prior to the cabinets being sealed in. So that was an interesting learning experience. The part I was most afraid of, was swapping the actual outlets out, and that turned out to be the easiest part!

So we officially have everything moved out of the apartment. My new beautiful house is piled high with boxes and a huge mess in the middle of my living room floor. I'm sure hoping that I can get a big dent in that soon, because I can't stand not being able to find things. It's very stressful!

Our brand new appliances were delivered and are now all plugged in and installed and working. Except for the microwave. It's the kind that you install over the stove, and I just am not confident in our ability to get it in properly. Sooo...hopefully my cousin Brandon will come over this weekend and help us do it! :) :)

I have been a very good girl and stayed below my calorie goals every day this week. I may not have eaten the best foods for dinner every night. I had pizza Monday, but I kept it under 1500 calories for the day. Tuesday I had Mexican, but again, I stayed under my calorie goal. It was just too crazy to try to cook among all the chaos.

I have not worked out since Saturday. It feels crazy weird to me. I have, however, hit over 7,000 steps every day except for yesterday. So I'm super proud of that. I'm hoping to still lose a little this week, but I won't be insanely disappointed if I didn't considering the week I've had.

And that's all I've got for today. I have tons of unpacking to do and lots of things going on outside of that too, but I'll save that for another day. ;)
