It’s a new day

Standard

Wow – thank you all so much for all the advice, comments, and general love you sent my way yesterday.  I could almost feel the hugs – warm fuzzies are the best!! If I could just have you all follow me around all day everyday, I’d be a much saner and happier person.  🙂

Shawn left early this morning, and I didn’t break down and cry – I had to keep it together in order to achieve minimal makeup damage. He’s already texted me 3 times today, so I think we’ll be okay as far as communication goes.  I’m trying to look on the bright side as a lot of you suggested, and I’m going to take this time to really focus on ME. I ordered a new yoga dvd, and I think I WILL do the Zumba class – it just sounds like fun, plus my neighbor goes to that class, so I know we would have a great time. Yoga, dance, and walking – Pubsgal is right, those are the things I like doing, so I should focus on those for awhile. (Thanks PG!!)

As far as what I want to accomplish in the next 6-8 weeks, I think I’m going to just focus on re-establishing some healthy habits and more importantly, some healthy attitudes. My attitude lately has not been the best, to be honest. As for tracking food, I’ve gone back to the tracker that my health insurance has set up. When you track your food and exercise, you get points that can be redeemed for prizes. I had a bunch of points already racked up from when I was movin’ and groovin’ back in the summer of ’09, so I used some of those to order my yoga dvd and Wii Sports Resort for the kiddos. Yay for free stuff!! 🙂  The tracker automatically gave me 1800 calories, so I figure if I can come in under that, I’m good. Really right now I’m just tracking my food and not worrying so much about the calories, like Pubsgal suggested. But I figure if I’m going to be writing this stuff down I may as well enter it into the health insurance site and get a few points.

Oh hey, did you notice the new blog layout? Since everyone else seems to be updating and refreshing the look of their blogs, I thought I might as well too. I needed something bright and cheery and what’s more cheerful than the beach? I hope it brightens your day, like you did mine!  🙂

  1. You certainly don’t need any advice, you seem to have it all worked out. And zumba will cheer you up every time…so I’ve heard.
    And yes, I love the blog layout. You had me at “beach”!

  2. Oh, so glad you found my ramblings helpful! And even more glad that all the supportive comments cheered you up a bit. 🙂 I love our corner of blogdom!

    A food tracker that lets you win free stuff? Cool! I’d be all over that. 🙂

    And I love the new blog look! The beach always cheers me up!

    GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE! (supposed to read that like Robin Williams in Good morning Vietnam.)

    Love the new look, and love your sunny outlook. Isn’t it great that we don’t get stuck in ‘down mode’ forever? Hope today is as hopeful as yesterday. I LOVE the new look. And think its darn optimistic of you to have a beach theme right there in the very middle of our country!
