Time to restart...again

Sunday, April 06, 2014

Whew life has been crazy these last few weeks. I can't believe that as of tomorrow we will have been living in our new house for a month! I am finally ready again to start the weight releasing again. Last month so much happened, moving, and traveling, and all sorts of other things. I have started again with my drinking 2 liters (8 cups) of water in the morning before I eat anything, and it feels so good. I don't really know why I stopped. I normally drink about 4 liters (16 cups) of water everyday but I am still feeling thirsty toward the end of the day, I may need to add another liter, I guess only trial and error will work on that one.

Now that we are in our new house I have to go a little farther to get the mail which is a good and bad thing since I have to walk farther to get it but bad because we live in western WA so it is a soggy soggy road most of the time, plus I have to walk past a mean dog to get it. But I just walk around him and use an umbrella.

It has been interesting, since we moved into our new house I seem to have a harder time sleeping in most mornings so I find I am awake around about 08:30 instead of trying to sleep in until 10. I think I am going to start trying to aim to wake up at 08:00 and try to get to bed by at least 22:30. My kids are generally in bed by 20:00 so that would still give me about 2 hours or so after they are in bed for me to get done whatever I need to do around the house.

I am thinking of joining the local chapter of the YMCA to start working out in group settings. I think I will be better at going to do the work outs if I am having to pay to do them because I don't like wasting money. Plus my daughter can take both gymnastics and swimming lessons if I join the Y. I am also working on starting my daughter into homeschool. I am nervous but excited at the same time. I will just pray that God will lead me to do the best I can.

    Homeschooling? That sounds like fun. I'm a teacher, but would love to homeschool if I have kids of my own one day.

    Don't think of this as restarting. Just keep going, even when life is busy. Kids are great at wanting to play, so go play with them some days for exercise. They'll certainly challenge you! Joining the YMCA sounds like a great idea. It's worth the money if you use it. It will be good for your whole family, which sounds like is the reason why you are doing this.
