Not much has happened in our household the past few days. We are starting to get into regular boring old life. KC has been a very good student, making sure to study and take notes while doing his readings. And while he studies I clean, listen to his cases (which are very interesting, might I add), and watch pointless summer tv.
The highlight of my day is when I got off work, and KC and I head over to the fitness center in the apartment. In the past 6 months I really had a hard time with working out. I want to blame that on the fact that I was super busy planning a wedding and getting ready to move. But I fear that it was because I was just getting lazy. But I've gotten off the couch and fell in love with it all over again. There are two factors that have helped me get back on track.
1. I am stuck in the apartment, and it is my only chance to get out everyday. So I will take whatever it is, even if entails sweating like no other (no thankyou MA humidity).
2. KC has joined me, it is so fun to share in something you love with your spouse. It is so beneficial for both of us.
With that said, KC has also found a way to balance our life. That is called "Treats at night". So far, I have found out why couples gain weight after they get hitched. For us, I thought we would stay the same, because I thought we would continue to eat as we did before. But this is not true. Before we were cooking around people that may see what we eat and say something about how often we eat sweets. Parents, roommates, siblings...but no one is around now but us. Thus no judging occurs. And secondly, I have replaced fast food dinners with homecooked dinners, which is good. But both of us seem to feel like we want just a little more. And so we make brownies, cookies, or have fruit snacks (3 packs each, sometimes). I say this to recognize it is a problem. That's the first step right? I hear the second step is doing something about it. When does that happen? I will let you know...
