Is it just me or does everyone get the urge to organize and purge after Christmas?? The playroom was the first to get tackled because I was tired of looking at piles of toys in my foyer. Forever ago I bought a gutter to make a rain gutter bookshelf, so I FINALLY dusted to off and put it up, LOVE it! It's so much nicer to have to books facing out so she can see the covers, plus it frees up some bookshelf space for puzzles and such.
We also added some shelves to the closet, easy and cheap!
While cleaning out her room I came across a scrapbook my Mom made of us when Miss M was a tiny little baby. I almost cried when I saw this pic.
Wow. I obviously knew I was heavy, but seriously this was shocking to me! Lately, I've been really hard on myself, I see pictures of myself and think about how much weight I still want to lose. I gained 2 pounds over the holidays and push myself to workout out longer and harder at the gym. I enjoy working out, but over the last few weeks I've been feeling like it's a chore. This is dangerous! I don't want to slip back to where I was and I need to make some changes to keep my motivation up.
Resolutions may be cliche, but I rarely make them and this just happens to be coming up on the New Year :)
I'm going to be happy with myself, I will not freak out over a half pound gain on the scale, I will not obsessively weigh myself every morning,
I will sweat for fun, if I miss a workout I will not punish myself the next day.
I'll be proud of the body I have and the athlete I have become.
Oh and just because she's too young to make one for herself I'll do one for her :) Miss M and I will run her first 1k in 2012!
