I've gotten a few emails from you sweet caring people wondering where I am and how I'm doing. Well, I'm here and am doing pretty good. I had gotten to a place where I just said to myself, "Enough talking, let's start doing...and putting this "talk" into practice." So that's why I haven't been posting as much. I've been "doing."
Last week I lost 2 lbs! YAY me! By just eating low fat, not snacking at night and not eating so many sweets and I didn't drink a Coke even once! I WAS trying to keep a calorie count everyday, but that was taking FOREVER so I decided not to calorie count, but basically just try to eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. It's worked for me in the past and really is the easiest thing I've ever done.
My house work has suffered some. I'm feeling a little blue. And when I'm blue, it's my house that tells on me. The laundry and the dishes are piled up, the fridge needs cleaned out, the baby's room is a disaster, the bathroom needs a good scrubbing, the floors need a good sweep and mop and we won't even mention the spare bedroom...EEK!
Although I have a lot going for me right now (on track with losing weight, new business, taking better care of myself), I still feel somewhat depressed. I don't know why I go through boughts of feeling down, but I think everyone does. On one hand, I can't tell you how amazing our lives are right now, and how I see God's hand in so many areas. It's an exciting time for me and my husband and every day seems to have new and exciting blessings. But on the other hand, when the baby goes down for a nap, I just want to crawl under the covers and hide. I feel so tired, uninterested and just down. I can't bring myself to do the things that I need to do because all I want to do is sleep. However, this isn't unusual for me and I don't expect it to last much longer. I think when spring rolls around, I'll perk up. Like I said, a lot of people feel this way this time of year.
So that's the past few weeks in a nut shell. I promise, I'm around, I'm still plugging away and I'm still progressing. You all keep me going though. So don't forget to send me emails to prod me on and hold me accountable. I need you!
