It's a New Year!!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I am 12 days into the New Year and I am just now getting to my first blog and my page. However I have been without a computer for almost a month and trying to do everything with my daughters tablet or my txtbook...which really wasn't working out at all by the way.

I have not given up, nor have I stopped working out even though my page doesn't show anything...now ya know why.

The pain of my wrist has gotten worse but, the two week count down is on until the surgery...so, I am just working my way thru it right now.

My personal goal for this week was to get ideas on how to help my skin and my body. I found three ideas I am going to put to use on myself for the next week. Did my first trial today and I actually like the results just after one use. And best of all didn't cost me a dime due to having all the ingerdents in my kitchen.
*Lemons (fresh) rub on my dry patches. Leave for five minutes and then rinse off.
* Used coffee grounds and olive oil for my stretch marks and lose skin. Rub in and leave on for five minutes then rise.

**My dry skin is gone except on my feet figured that would take more than one time, my stomach and my thighs are smooth and my red stretch marks are lighter already.**

I have been trying out some of the cooking ideas in our Sparks cookbook....and my daughter and I don't agree on any of them. The ones I love she doesn't and so on. But, the ones she loves she can make herself so, she likes it.

Since I now work out of my house instead of actually having to go off to work I have had to do a ton of change in the house so, I won't get bored. I know it was my choice to leave my job and just in almost three weeks I have been smiling more and yelling less. I love stress but, the kind I had at the job was crazy and it wasn't my stress. So, ya know the feeling it was out of your hands and there was nothing you could say or do to make it go away.

Well, Garry and I are trying again to make things work. I have come to the conclusion that he will never marry me and well, I know I love him, I am no longer sure if I am in love with him. He is a good man and he is my friend. But, to have to go out and try to date right now is not for me. So, yes I guess you can say I settled...but, we also have a years lease together so no matter what we are stuck with each other. I mean I work at home but, it is not like I am making big bucks. And I have my daughter to think of. So, this is what is happening...as of now. I figure if my Mr. Lifetime is out there he will find me right?

The men who have asked me out when I do go dance...either don't have a lic. to drive, no job, or still live at home with there parents. Or my fav. they are like 22 yrs of age. Cute yes, but I like older men. Always have and always will.

Okay so, I got personal which I normally don't do. So, lets get back to my working out routine now.
I have my gazelle at home that I walk three miles on every other day and I have my stretch bands that I use 2xs a week and then I do my crunches still.

Alright thank you for listening.

    Glad you're feeling less stressed and having a fairly good new year. Those skin tips sound good - I had never heard the coffee grounds and olive oil one, but perhaps I'll try it!
    And as for Mr. Right - I happen to believe that things like love will only turn up once you're not looking for them. So sit back, concentrate on getting your life to where you want it to be, and the rest will sort itself out.
    Keep staying strong!
