Time to hurry up & wait

Some of you who follow my personal account and/or my Instagram account may know that we have found a house and made an offer! We are still waiting to hear back to see if they accept the offer or if we will start negotiations. Basically it is time to hurry up and wait…

I am a HUGE stress eater. There hasn’t been a time in my life that I haven’t turned to food when I started to stress out over something… until now. Buying a house has been a huge stress factor for me. I have been stressed about getting pre-approved. I have been stressed about house hunting. I have been stressed about making an offer… and now I am stressed about waiting to hear back!

However, with all of this stress… I haven’t turned to food once. Instead, I have taken my stress to the gym and worked through it there. We were supposed to have an answer yesterday but then received a phone call saying it would be today before we would have an answer. I won’t lie, I was REALLY bummed out and disappointed. I went to the bedroom, got dressed for the gym and headed out the door. I felt so much better afterwards and the rest of the evening, I really didn’t think much about it.

This morning I woke up excited knowing today (MIGHT) be a BIG day for us. I went to the gym and focused 100% on me and got my sweat on, I needed to not think about it. It helped because I didn’t think about the house again until I got to work… now I am wishing I could go work out and get it off my mind again instead of searching for food to shove down my throat. Actually, food is the last thing on my mind right now and I am not even that hungry… Don’t worry, I am eating!!

I am pretty proud of myself for not turning to food during all of this… I hope that it stays that way through closing and everything else that goes with buying a house! Fingers crossed, say a prayer, and wish us the best!!

Come on Seller, we want an answer!!!
