My daughter works at 8 am at times and I’m not the easiest person to wake up ( OMG Not nearly as bad as Rose though). At 7:30 she’s usually in a panic. I jump out of bed, run for the shower and am out dressed, hair done by 7:45. The other morning she said I can’t believe how fast you do that.
It got me to thinking about all the things I sacrafice that I don’t need to do. The morning thing doesn’t matter if I get 5 hours of sleep or 10 so this is going to take some brain washing. I want to lose weight and I want to get healthier. After I had Sarena I packed on at least 40 lbs. That was after not during. While preggers with all 3 I lost weight with 24/7 morning sickness. After my son Ian was born I started kickboxing 2 hours a day 5 days a week. I loved it. I felt good, I was fit but I didn’t lose any weight.
The doctor said I had thyroid issue which I have treated and then I broke part of my knee cap. That hurt like hell and my knee hasn’t been right in 3 years. I read at the Cape Clogs website that these wooden shoes help you to walk correctly. That got me to thinking I hadn’t had new tennis shoes in years. Looking at the bottom of the soles there was a hole in one. I started wearing my treasured clogs around the house and guess what? My knee is starting to feel better. Hmmm maybe that was a no brainer that a doctor should suggest idk.
As for food and I know you hear me say I want to go green and organic. I do very much so. The problem is the price of groceries has soared. Del Monte’s Teacher Monday was such a treat to our family. We live on veggies in the summer. We try to plant one item we haven’t tried growing before. Very rarely are their coupons for fresh produce.
So after I took my daughter to work I sat down and thought “no mom should be able to get showered and dressed in 15 minutes”. I rarely buy anything for my self so I have decided I’m getting new tennis shoes (which really makes me smile) and I’m going on a hunt for new clothes. I’m not talking sweat pants. I’m talking some work out wear like yoga pants and nice work out tops and if I can find one a sports bra.
I’m on the hunt for some blue jeans, new khakis, and nice pants. Of course I’m going to need tops to match. A dress or two wouldn’t hurt either. Then I’m going to work on my hair. What the freaking hell do you do with your hair? Mine’s not gray there might be a few but there are a lot of brown and blond highlights. I have wonderful CREO Care shampoo & conditioner that now controls it but now I have to find a style that works for me.
So I’m definitly going to share some new me things. I have to find a way to make all these changes affordably of course too. I’m going to be the person I was in my 20s and I’m going to spend more time on myself and for myself. Anyone with me?
