SuperIma Sunday Check-In: Heading Home

Hello, Friends!

Wow.  It's been a heck of a week.
On Monday, David had a job interview.
On Wednesday, David got a job offer.  So we found out we're going home.
The next two days were a whirlwind of trying to figure out where we were going to live, when we were going to move, and how we were going to inform our respective jobs here in Kansas City.
Oh, and taking care of our children, and doing the housework, and getting the food on the table, and and and.

So.  Things have been completely crazy and insane.  Logistically and emotionally.
My thing I was going to do for myself this week was to really concentrate on getting back into fighting form, and finally kicking my last twelve baby pounds in the rear.
I was doing really well - getting up before five o'clock to work out, eating sensibly.
That is, until Monday afternoon, when the stress of the OMIGODDIDHEGETTHEJOB kicked in.  And I ate six coconut bonbons without batting an eye.

Yeah.  The rest of the week kind of went on like that.  I worked out every morning, though, and maybe the stress balanced out the stress eating, because I ended the week not losing a pound, but not gaining one either.  Which is better than last week went.

But!  I am still committed to reclaiming my post-pregnancy hottttness from all the way back in 2006.
Except we are moving in two weeks, and 
have you seen what they are selling in stores these days?????
Have you???

My plan for the coming week is to use jeans that are slightly too tight to counterbalance my urge to scarf the chocolate and coconut goodness, in various forms, that I have brought into my home.

Is that self-abusive?   Do you think?  Weigh in, everyone. (Pun intended.)

Um, this week - I'm going to let the laundry slide, for sure.  For two weeks now, I haven't gotten around to folding it on Thursday, which means it just gets folded Sunday afternoon.  No big deal.  It takes a little longer, but I get a little more time during the week.

My commitment is to get enough sleep.  As tempting as it is to pull all-nighter when you're packing up a house to move, I'm going to make sure I get at least six hours of sleep each night.  And work out every morning.  And try not to stress-eat too much.  I swear.

Now it's your turn!  What are you letting slide?  And what are you doing for yourself?
Hugs to everyone!  You're doing an awesome job.


  1. congratulations on your exciting news- its always nice to move back "HOME" I hope it all goes smoothly -
    So from here in Jerusalem I say to you enjoy the games ...

  2. Wow....moving in 2 weeks??? Yes my dear, you need to sleep and pump your body full of vitamins to battle that stress! And you know what, why not wear the jeans? Honestly, I (knowingly) try to trick myself all the time. I only weigh in every month to 6 weeks, because I know I'll see a loss, that way I'm like..."Yey! I lost 2 pounds!" even though it took 6 weeks, it's a loss, lol! Little tricks work, I've read some celebs even use bread plates as their dinner plates, just to make the visual more filling! And omgosh, those little bonbons do look good! I've eaten half a Toblerone without batting an eye, yeah the BIG one.

  3. Thanks ladies! @Rain, I feel a lot better knowing about your Toblerone secret. Teehee

  4. It's hard to hide that giant triangular shape in your cheek, lol!!!

  5. So you're saying I should or should not send you a package of the aptly named "Asher's Cookies" that I discovered while searching for emotional eating outlets following a hospital visit? (Yeah, we all do it. I walked away with sushi and a croissant. Who DOES that?)

  6. @Steph you are so awesome! I am loving the comfort eating support. I always feel SO guilty.

    I would TOTALLY walk away with sushi and a croissant.


Thanks for your comments! They make my day.
