Days 104 & 105: In a Nutshell

Eek – I owe an update for Monday and Tuesday – two pretty blah days. Let’s do 5 things about each day – I heart a short list!

Monday: 5 things
  1. I weighed 119, and had 1,537 calories, 212carbs and 47 fat grams – not bad. Here’s what I ate. Notice all of the sweets – I’m totally stress eating because I want a cigarette SO bad but no… I refuse to start smoking just because my apartment complex sucks.
  2. Apt. Complex upped their offer to $600 off rent… then $800.
  3. I walked 5 miles (burned 270 calories) and did chest and tricep strength training.
  4. Me and Austin talked and feel like we may rent a house instead of buying right now. The timing just doesn’t feel right…
  5. I am officially obsessed with my iPhone. I love the applications and play way too much Symon and Word Warp.

    Tuesday: 5 things

  1. I made my fab fried rice again! Love it!
  2. I worried about Reuben all day since he was in the “hotel” apartment alone.
  3. I weighed 118.5, and had 1,536 calories, 189 carbs and 47 fat grams – not bad. Here’s what I ate.
  4. I walked 5 miles (burned 270 calories) and did shoulder and bicep strength training.
  5. The apt. complex made a final offer of $800 off rent, plus they agreed to give us the letter letting us out of lease without penalty (usually $3,000 to break lease). We were happy, began looking at properties last night, and realized they had broken our lamp… and scratched the table the lamp sits on… so they’re assessing the damage and will “settle up” later this week. SIGH.

Wow. What a nightmare you guys are going through. I'm so sorry. I really hope the situation gets better soon and you're able to have a Merry Christmas. Will you at least be travelling for the holidays?

Thanks, Kristen. I'm such a home body too so it's just killing me to see our place look so bobo. :( I hope it does, too. I'm just ready to see out my windows. Caution tape and 2x4s is getting old... quick! We'll be in town but we'll be back and forth between my sister's with my family and Austin's grandparents with his - and the crew is "taking a break" over Christmas so at least there's that!! Thanks for thinking of us! I'm trying not to be too negative.. i'm not very good at it! :)

girl, i'm concerned that they shouldn't be paying your ENTIRE rent just for the headache they've caused!

and i understand about feeling safer renting a house right now instead of buying. my husband and i own our house and it's scary watching prices fall...

you're so close to goal!

Oh I COMPLETELY agree. They just keep holding steady at $800 refusing to do the right thing so i'm like whatever... get me my letter so I can leave for free and give me the $ for my furniture. All I can hope for at this point is karma.

Oh I know. If I already owned - that would be one thing - i'm sure you guys are doing fine! But since I don't and just don't know... i'm like hmmmm let's rent and save up some more $ so we can sleep better at night. Not worth the worry you know?
