Hi <waves> Remember me? I know it's been awhile but...
I just kinda remembered that I *do* have a blog and that maybe just maybe I should be writing in it.
And lucky you, fine reader, because I actually have something to write about at this particular moment in time. But, before that, let me catch you up on the last ummmmm..... 168 days.
At the end of July, we went to Catholic Familyland, where we spent a glorious week of praising God, enjoying nature, and spending an uber-amount of time together. In August, I was super busy preparing for and running the show for the New Member Social for a club in which I am heavily involved. It was A LOT of work but very rewarding at the same time. During that month, Jonas had surgery on his jaw so I spent a lot of time pureeing his food and fetching Gatorade and applesauce. September came, along with school for all three kids. We also had a death in the family that month. The hectic schedules we were following was almost too much to bear. In October, things slowed down a little bit and, besides a trip to Children's Hospital for Emily, was fairly uneventful. November and December went as they always do - way too fast. The holidays, for us, were wonderful even though we all wished they could have lasted a little longer.
And now, here it is January of 2013 and of course, I have my New Year's Resolutions. Here are mine:
1. To be more modest around the kids (i.e. covering up after a shower and not leaving the bathroom door open)
2. To continue healthy living by working out at least 5 days a week and eating as much organic and whole foods as possible.
3. To set aside more time for Nick
4. To use my skin care stuff DAILY so I don't end up all wrinkly before my time
5. To read the Bible in one year, using a program I found online.
So far, so good on all of them but it's only 10 days into the year. *wink*
As part of resolution number two, I decided to try to break my sugar addiction. As most of my readers know, I am a HUGE cupcake fan. Really, any sweet thing gets me going. The problem is that once I start, I seriously cannot stop. All my reasonable thinking goes out the window, and I don't regret it until a little later when my stomach feels sick or when I have a sugar crash. So....
My wonderful sister, Colleen, suggested doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox. Today was my Day 1. I will be chronicling my journey with this detox (which I am starting at 7 days and *then* deciding if I want to continue or not). Stay tuned for my day 1 post, coming up next!
