Here it is the end of another year!
There has been ups this year: I got married
in March and became mom to 2 awesome daughters. I have 2 new great grandnephews and 1 new great grandniece. Celebrated my one year anniversary at my job. My son graduated
from community college and he won the presidential scholarship.
And with the ups, there has been downs. Losing a special sister friend
, dealing with a drug problem in my neighborhood.
Although, I haven't lost any weight, I've managed not to gain any. I know I need to lose weight, and always say I'm going to get serious, but that doesn't last for long. I want immediate results and get too easily discouraged.
has always been one of downfalls. I used to drink at least 1 a day for years. I've been down to 2 a week for the last several months. I'm going to allow myself 1 a week (and hope I can stick to that). I drink iced tea in place of the pepsi. I need the caffeine or I end up with a headache that I have a very time getting rid of. I've been trying to get drink more water.
I don't drink nearly enough, but am getting better (especially when I'm at work).
Cutting down on the pepsi has made me want more junk food
though. And my husband and daughters think we need to have dessert
every night. I try to have will power and not eat it, but not always easy when it is readily available.
I was walking on the treadmill
for awhile, but I think I was pushing myself to hard, because my hips started hurting and of course I quit. I'm going to try it again, but only walk for 15-20 minutes at a time, until I work up to a longer time.
I would love to go another mission trip to Mexico
and take the girls. My husband and I think it would be a great experience for them. And they would like to go also. Our mission pastor asked us if we would like to be the leaders for the trip if we get to go. I think that would an awesome and terrifying thing at the same time, as that is putting me out of my comfort zone.
I wish I could make some crafts (crocheted scarves and gloves) to sell at craft sales, but it seems like although people say they "love" your work, they don't want to pay for it. I also would like to make something for the women's Christmas gift exchange at my church and for my boss and co-workers.
Happy New Year!
I hope you all have a wonderful year.
