I am a house selling Mama!!

This week was absolutely insane. Since my last Mamavation Monday post, I SOLD my house and it has already CLOSED!!! Amazing, huh??? The buyer paid cash, so we agreed to an offer last Monday and then we closed on the deal on Friday. We don't have to be out until the end of March - but the house is no longer ours. It is very bitter sweet, I wrote about some of the awesome memories we made in this house here.

I continued with the Cinch! plan for the majority of the week, but mid week I was down another pound and a half...but it was back as of this morning :( I am definitely retaining water right now so I am just ignoring the scale for a few days and focus on eating well. I am going to be honest now - I have to be out of this house in three weeks. One entire week I will be out of town for a conference. And I have to find us a place to live in Knoxville. I am highly doubting I will be working out too much until we move. And I am going to counteract that by making sure I eat healthy each and every day. I am not going to overeat and not going to to turn to fast food as we get crazy busy.

This week’s blogging carnival is sponsored by Chef’s Requested. Two blogging carnival participants will receive a grip of Chef’s Requested steaks.

Question: What are you doing to keep your heart healthy?

I am cutting crap out of my life - eating clean, not fried. Working out and laughing as much as possible.


  1. Awesome!! Sounds like the fastest home sale on record! Probably good to be realistic about what you'll be able to do. Maybe you could fit a workout in at the conference? Have a great week!

  2. Congrats on selling the house and good luck getting settled in a new place. You will be busy but you know how to eat healthy, and diet is a HUGE part of a healthy lifestyle.

  3. Erin, I am so happy for you! Now, let's stick to not overeating and not underworking out. I am with you. XO

  4. Congrats on the house sale! That is awesome. So glad you don't have to be out right away... that can be a real headache.

    "Boo" on the water weight. Are you still liking the Cinch plan? I am almost through the 5 day jumpstart and have a love hate relationship with all that spinach... but my body is reacting well.

    Life happens. Know that you will get some workouts with all the packing, lifting and cleaning. Then set a goal to get back into exercise when you have a new place and are unpacked. Eat well and the rest will come.

  5. Wow!! Congrats on the sale of your house!

    Sounds like you're being smart about your upcoming schedule. Good for you! Do what you can, control what you can, don't sweat the rest!


  6. Wow, congrats on the house sale! It looks like you have a good plan for the next few weeks. Nice job. :)

  7. wow congrats on the house!!!!! life happens and when you are busy sometimes we gain! Its ok, you can control it!
