I just wanted to do an official post and let everyone know that I am returning to my former blog. Truthfully, I miss it. I was on that blog for many years and it was like a comfortable pair of old shoes.
I am still sore today but I am getting things done for this move. This move came on so suddenly that I feel like it is completely out of control. On the upside, the move is scheduled for Monday! I am so excited to be in the new house soon. I can’t wait to spend hot summer days in the yard with my kids.
Okay, so one of the dubious benefits of having a lot of kids running around my place is I find it hard to keep things off the floor. There is always little bits of things some place I never intended them to be. And today, I tripped over some and fell. With 3 month old Jackson IN MY ARMS!!!! I landed hard on my knees and knew I wasn’t going to be able stop myself from falling so I twisted myself so that I was under her and he landed with his head on my chest. He was fine, but I am sore. my neck, my stomach, my back and my knees are all achy and sore. Fun, fun, fun. But at least I kept him from being hurt.
I turned 40 last month and I decided that this is the year that I get my body back and I get healthy again. I am going to take my diet step by step towards a healthier way of eating and towards a way of life that I can maintain. I am going to enjoy my life in HRM with my kids, enjoying all that it has to offer. I want to lose between 65 and 80 lbs. 65 would get me to about 10 lbs below my best weight to date and 80 would take me to my ideal charted BMI. I don’t have any scales right now, so I am just eating and trying to be healthy but I plan on buying a set of scales soon and then I will update on my progress here.
