It has been quite the lazy summer. I made sure to that after I got up that I immediately got dressed and put on my tennis shoes. I NEEDED to get on that treadmill today. Did a leisurely walk at 3.0 while reading for just under 2 and a half miles. It is a good start
I am down 17 pounds with Weight Watchers since September. Slow, but still great. I have to keep reminding myself that is 21 pounds lighter than my highest weight. Funny thing is that I am still in the same clothes size. Just not as tight and pretty damn close to a 12. I figure at this rate, I will be in a 8 within another year, or so. I’m okay with that.
My motivation has been totally lost with household stuff. Pantry a mess. Closets a mess. Time to tackle a little each week. Today I got into one of the kitchen cabinets and reorganized it and have Carmina doing the refrigerator and freezer.
My children have been sleeping in pretty late each day and it seems that they aren’t doing much, but swimming and playing on the computers all day. We get out here and there, but with me not driving, that is sometimes impossible. I realize that some things are out of my hands, but doing interactive things aren’t. I need to gain my creative energy back. Especially for them.
I’m a bit pissed at myself for not planning our Summer better this year with an outstanding vacation. My will at the time just wasn’t where it should have been. Sometimes I feel like I am holding the rope with my family behind me in a tug-of-war game and turning asking them if we should pull and never get an answer. That really gets to a person after a while. I just wish I had more enthusiasm with my ideas.
I am loving that my oldest is enjoying his Guardstart Junior Lifeguard class. It is great to see him so independent and enthused. This is the very first thing he had done completely on his own.
I am hoping that a new job comes in this week for my Husband, or a change in his current one. I am in such a need for a change for the positive. In the meantime, I will trudge forward each moment the best I can and make my day great for myself and our Boys.
I am going to pull out my paints today if I can muster up the want to clean the closet everything is buried under. My 6-year-old would be so happy if I did. My soul probably would be too.
As said by Abraham Lincoln… “A person will be just about as happy as they make up their mind to be.” 🙂
