Life has been getting in the way of my healthy lifestyle. My in-laws were at my house for two weeks. And then it was celebration after party after celebration... and then, I just got lazy...
No more. I'm sick of feeling sluggish and horrible. I know what I need to do. I know that it works. It sucks hardcore that I can't eat as much as my skinny friends and family, but that's how it is, and I just have to make the best of it. I know I gained back some weight and I'll weigh in tomorrow and do measurements and get the show on the road.
I have accomplished some things though.
After agonizing and agonizing, I found a daycare program for Keira starting in the fall. As good as she is, it is just tough to get anything done and she deserves more attention than I can give her.
I won a couple of big cases, which was a fantastic ego boost. There are now about a dozen new U.S. citizens and more to come, thanks to my work.
I got recommended for a BIG job and applied for a couple of others. It felt good that someone said such great things to a prospective employer.
I didn't lose my marbles after hosting my in-laws for two weeks and planning a Christening brunch for 70 people.
I planted an herb garden! And have a proper tomato and squash patch. My house truly feels like a home now.
I love my family so much. I just feel so connected to and blessed to have my husband and daughter.
I'm running a half marathon in just under 100 days with MAMADELIGHT and LISSOME and I need to get back in running shape. So I've got my half marathon plan set and posted on my refrigerator with an exercise calendar. This time around I have a run-walk day, a short run, and a long run.
So that's where I am.
Also... SIX MONTHS!!!! I can hardly believe it!
