Happy 2010!

Happy New Year!!!

I love January. Fresh start to a new year, new month, new ME! I got back on the workout wagon last week. I got in 4 days and am on track to get 5 days this week (week runs Friday to Thursday). I also tracked my food and saw a 4# drop on the scale. The holiday weight is almost on to the other 35# I want to lose. This is it. I am going to do it this year. I am going to RUN that half marathon in May if it kills me. :) Okay, so not literally but I will finish it and I will run across that finish line! I want to do another half marathon in October too so that will keep me running throughout the summer.

I have some other goals for 2010 that aren't weight related. I'm going to take better care of myself. I'm going to spend more time on myself...doing this will help me be a better wife and mother. This past Saturday, I got up early (to an ALARM--a sin in my book) and worked out, headed out to weigh in at a Saturday morning meeting grabbed Starbuck's and came home. It was a GREAT start to my day. There are little things that I am doing too...making sure I brush my teeth AND floss every night before bed. All these little things are going to add up and make me a better person. I'm learning that taking time for myself is VERY important!

DS2 has been sick this past week and it's been rough! All he wants is momma and I'm trying to cater to him. Makes it hard but I've still been taking care of myself. I went to bed right after he did last night b/c I was so exhausted (mentally and physically) from the day. I'm trying to remember that I will miss this age eventually. I may not LOVE it right now but he lets me hold him and cuddle him anytime I want. Eventually he won't want anything to do with me and he'll do anything to get away from me. :) For now, I will cherish these times.

I think that's enough from me for now...I'll check in again after I weigh in this week! :) Which, BTW, is changing. I'm going to my meeting on Thursday night, but my 'official' (to me anyway...LOL) weigh in is going to be at my scales on Saturday mornings. This way, I don't go hog wild on Thursday nights and I can enjoy the one meal out that we do each week. So far, it's working well for me. We'll see how it goes.

I love your goals - and I truly think you'll be able to accomplish them! Unfortunately, I don't need alarms on Saturdays - my kid and dog are up! BOO!
