The tough time of the year and it's time to get tough.
Saturday, February 21, 2015
So this is always the roughest time of the year for me since ages ago when my kids were still around. Then I didn't have time to think about it. So, this is a timeframe I have talked about before so I won't say too much except that it is not only nasty and cold outside but way too quiet inside even on the weekends since my husband deals with taxes this time of year.
Anyway, I have been trying to focus my energy into some exercises; loving the power walking on Youtube with Leslie Sansone and with Jessica Smith. I am also putting my efforts into tackling that on-going list of repairs and painting that needs to get done in the house. I mean, who wants to be inside painting once it gets really nice out, right?
My oldest is expecting and told me that the little interior bundle is now the size of a cantalope! They have an envelope that contains the gender of the baby but, get this, haven't found any time to open it together. I mean really?? But knowing them they will want to make a special event out of it which is really their choice.
So I am so proud to be part of this Winter 5% Challenge. I am 3 pounds away from that goal and even if I don't make it I know I am on the right path...which is really the point. Also, how wonderful to be featured in the Spotlight and see so many wonderful and kind comments from everyone...come on guys, you are making me tear up here!!!
OK. I am quite the sweaty thing from this 90 minutes of working out so I am hitting the shower. Perhaps I will blog again someday soon.
