Happy New Year!!
I don’t know about you but I always get motivated by the New Year and I get really excited about making some changes (or improvements)!
My list is long this year!! I have set some personal goals and some business goals and the first order of business is ME.
I think as moms we often put ourselves last and even though my children are grown, I still find myself putting me last.
So, this year I’m going to focus on my personal health and wellness and lose some weight!
I always say I’m going to lose weight in January … and then February hits and I’m too busy to do so. I’m at the age that I must focus on my well being or otherwise it’s only going to get worse. The crazy thing is … I cut almost all the sugar out of my diet last year and it did not make a single dent in my weight …. grrrrr
So, what’s new for this site? I’ve wanted to do this for years and I’ve tried and failed a few times…. I’d like to share a Picture a Day.
Here’s my Picture of the Day #1 (although the picture was taken last week).
We went to the lake house for Christmas and I took a whole suitcase of fabric thinking I might get some sewing in …. but…. I pretty much stayed in the kitchen all week! I’m not complaining, I loved having the whole family together, especially since Chase moved out in July, but there was very little down time (only took one nap).
After Christmas I did manage to finally finish one of my Christmas Quilts. I finished it at night … left the next morning and I don’t have a picture of the finished quilt (yet).
Back to the Picture of the Day ….. it will be totally random!!!
I wish I could say it would be fabric and quilting but there will be very little sewing in the next few months (I will try to film the next Quilt Along at lake house, the next time I go).
I have to start planning meals, grocery shopping, cooking and exercising. That will take approximately two hours of my day (I currently eat whatever is the quickest so I can get back to work).
If you’re wondering…. what diet am I doing? I don’t know yet. I’ve done lots of research on many different programs and because I’m allergic to dairy, my options are limited. Diets that have meals and protein bars and shakes, are not an option … again dairy allergy and an intolerance to artificial sweeteners.
So, although I haven’t decided what diet to start …. I started my daily walk on the treadmill today (have I mentioned how much I hate to sweat).
I could rattle on forever but I must get off here and get some work done (and check on the baby eagle). My latest obsession…. don’t look at the video if it bothers you to see a dead fish. Those eagles are great providers and there’s been a dead fish or two in the nest for the last 48 hours.
I hope you have a wonderful day!!
p.s. I don’t know what’s going on with my blog … I updated WordPress this morning and now my site is all wonky. I will try to get it fixed this week (one more thing to add to my to do list…. grrrr).
