Hey everyone! I know I've been MIA for the last few months. I have been so busy! Jeremy has been finishing up school....he will be graduating with his RN next week!! YAY! I have been busy chasing around my now crawling twins...EEK! Also, my little guy turned 5 years old... can't believe it. I feel like I have had a stressful but fun summer, so far. There are still so many things I want to get before fall....fishing, State Fair, biking among other things. One thing I have been really working on lately is getting my life, house, finances, and health in order. I discovered flylady.com at the beginning of July and have been using those tools to get things in order. I have been working on de-cluttering my house. It's been fun seeing things leave my house and seeing areas get all cleaned up. Today I worked in the pantry. Junk had taken over the entire counter. I got it all cleared off and then went through the cupboards. It's amazing how much stuff I had accumulated in there! I threw away stuff that had expired in '07! haha I have a long "to do" list but one thing that flylady is a big believer in and really promotes is "baby steps." If you take your time and work a little at a time, slowly developing good habits, those habits will become part of your everyday life.
I think this organization of my life was something that I needed to get done before I could make any true progress on loosing weight. If I didn't feel like I had enough time to go to the gym because I needed to do laundry or make supper, I would most likely not go. Part of my organization process is making a grocery list. If I can have all the groceries I need and a menu planned, I will be more likely to make better choices. All of this comes with being organized. So, slowly but surely I am getting there.
AND to top it all off... I haven't gained any weight! :) To tell you the truth, I have no idea what I weight right now...but I know it's right around where I've been all summer. I would be lying if I told you I'm not dissapointed. I am a little dissapointed that the last few months haven't brought me to a lower weight. I am proud that I'm getting my life in order...everything else will fall into place! :)
