Starting Over

I've let things get crazy. Now its time to get better.

Been here before. Back again - hopefully for the last time, God willing I won't need another "restart".

I'm a new Mom (how long do you get to claim "new"?). My son is now 8 months old.

I want to be a beautiful, happy, and active mom and wife.

I'll feel like I'll be there when I can go kayaking with my husband - the last time he went kayaking (I didn't go) the weight limit on the boat ...

I'll feel like I'll be there when I can go kayaking with my husband - the last time he went kayaking (I didn't go) the weight limit on the boat was 190 lbs. Being at 276 I have long way to go to that mark. But I believe I can do it and the work is worth it.

I want to take care of my house better - be more organized, have less clutter. I want to take care of my yard - not feeling drained after mowing, getting the weeds under control, growing a vegetable garden, design a "getaway backyard".

I want to take care of our finances better - having extra energy to bargain shop, coupon, research sales and yard sale, both by finding bargains and by having our own as needed. And get to know myself and my desires better so that hopefully I could find a passion that I could possibly turn into an an extra income opportunity for my family.

At some point, I want to have a second child and a happy and healthy pregnancy then.

Hey there! So, I have been MIA for over a year. Yikes. I decided to start again, seeing as it is the new year and time for some good ol new years resolutions. Mine is to start a healthy lifestyle, and keep it for good. To stop giving up and stop giving in, to work as hard as I can, because in the end it will all be worth it! So, here I am. Yet again. How are things going with you?

School is really crazy but I am managing to keep my grades up.I started back at the gym again. I hope all is well :)

Hi. How is it going? I hope that everything is good. I am up to drinking 6 glasses of water a day, which is a great improvement from my usual 4-5 glasses a day.
