That time again

Its the beginning of the year. Time for that fresh start feeling. Also, getting close to that birthday feeling. Zach will be 20 this month. Its so hard to believe! Lets not talk Januaryabout how old I’m going to be.

My resolution this year is to be healthy. Its long overdue, and the longer I wait to make good habits into habits, the harder its going to be. I’m not off to a great start. I haven’t been eating too great and I haven’t been to the gym yet, but its only the 4th so I’m going to cut myself some slack. Jon and I belong to the same gym and he mentioned going next week. A workout buddy would be a good thing. I still have some sessions with my trainer too as soon as he comes back from a family emergency.

New Years Eve was fun. There were only six of us so it wasn’t overwhelming. I did burn the hell out of my mouth on spinach artichoke dip, but that’s because I wasn’t thinking when I popped it straight from heating in the oven into my mouth. Duh. My mouth is still sore and its making eating difficult. Jon wanted to go to a sushi place tonight but I love spicy tuna rolls, and I’m not sure my mouth can handle it [insert sad face].

I still need to take down Christmas decorations. I guess I’ll be working on that this weekend. I need to seriously deep clean the house too. I think I’m going to buy a new carpet cleaner because ours is so old and it just doesn’t work that well. It leaves the carpets soggy for hours on end. The newer ones have a heat dry system in them.

Zach goes back to school on Monday so life will be back on something of a schedule. I need to get my sleeping hours straightened out again. I woke up early today but then I got a migraine so I took a nap. I’ve been having a real problem with headaches lately. I wonder if I’m taking too much headache medicine and getting rebound headaches from it. I think some of it is stress too. You may wonder what I have to stress about but there’s plenty. Trust me.

Happy New Year to all of you! Are you making resolutions, or do you think they’re a joke?

One thought on “That time again

  1. I understand stress! As simplistic as it sounds, being nice to yourself is a big help.
    I don’t judge on the resolutions thing — I made them for years until I realized that change should be like routine and happen whenever you decide.I decided we (husband and I) would start a serious weight-loss program in May. We did. I decided to put my toe into exercise on 12/26. I did. 1/1 was just another day in rolling forward:)
