House update: Our application checked out!
We have no criminal activity on our records. Our credit looks good. Sadie is not a rabid wolf. Check! Check! Check!
(Gosh, I miss her. )
So, that’s the good news.
The bad news? The realtor thinks we won’t be able to move into the new place until September 1.
We initially were told the move in date would be August 15 and were hopeful that we’d be in a home and reunited with our long lost dog in ten days. I realize this is not that big of a deal, but Ryan and I were both really bummed. We weren’t expecting to be separated from Sadie for nearly a month an a half. I hope she doesn’t forget about us!
At least we know she’s in good hands. My mom took her to get her nails clipped today and then bought her a plain cheeseburger from McDonald’s as a reward for behaving so well. She’s livin’ the high life.
Today’s workout took me outside of the hotel and to a real gym!!!
I headed to the gym Ryan and I will be joining to get our memberships in order (gotta love saving money on a “family plan” membership!) and stayed for a quality workout.
I headed to the weight room to complete a total-body workout that included three sets of the following exercises:
- Leg extensions
- Leg extensions (one leg at a time, alternating legs)
- Seated leg curls
- Single leg split squat with exercise ball
- Hamstring ball curls
- Bridges (with 25 lb. weight)
- Upright rows
- Bicep curls
- Tricep pulldowns
- Overhead press
- Front shoulder raises
I totally copped out of ab work today and rounded out my workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical.
Lunch today was so delicious. As good as frozen Amy’s pocket sandwiches are in a pinch, I really do prefer fresh, homemade meals.
When Ryan and I learned about the delayed move in date to the new house, I had a “that’s it!” moment and ran out to the grocery store to grab some “real” food. If we’re going to be here for almost another month, I want some substantial grub!
Today’s lunch was inspired by the salads we had at my mother in law’s house on Saturday.
Arugula + Watermelon + Feta cheese + Snow peas + Salt + Olive oil
I love this salad. I have a feeling I would make another one for dinner tonight if I didn’t already eat all of the watermelon.
After polishing off the salad, a cup of strawberry banana Chobani Greek yogurt and some string cheese, I went back for some more feta cheese, straight from the container.
For the longest time I bought the fat free feta cheese until I tried the full-fat, full-flavor feta and switched immediately. It really is so much better. Betta feta!
Off to do some fact checking. Doesn’t that sound like a blast!?
