No seriously how?
Remember as a kid you thought by this time you’d be in hovercrafts? You thought you’d be communicating telepathically? Well, I’m glad we’re not! I swear many of us need to keep it simple – get back to basics for healthier bodies & minds, don’t you?
So, it’s the new year…resolutions flying around left & right. I prefer not to use the word resolutions because it always seems to be setup with failure. If I put too much pressure on myself I throw in the towel too soon. A bit of failure will have me going in the opposite direction.
Some of the things I’m looking forward to a fresh start on is the ever popular – weight loss. Did you know I currently weigh more now than I have since I started this “journey”? I weigh more than I ever had (except with being pregnant). Eh, if I think about it too much I get upset, discouraged & again…my mind and body go in the opposite direction.
Some other things I’m interested in is getting control…(HA!), ok, trying to get control of my life. Since having Natie – who is now 4!, I can’t seem to get control of anything anymore. I hear this is normal, but I’m just now at 4 years finding myself again. Allowing myself to say “Rich, YOU’RE putting Natie to bed tonight by yourself!” so I can go for a walk. GOD to I LOVE my nighttime walks! It’s so wonderful for my mind, my emotions, my soul…in turn – for everyone else around me too! I’m a much better Mom having that “me” time – even if it is a nighttime walk just 3 days a week!
Other fun things I’m playing around with is making my own products. For YEARS I saw recipes for making your own hair gel & thought “That’s insane! Who has time for that?” Well, guess what – this chick does! AND the savings! OMG! I’m hoping to do more posts on the “adventures” in product making too…money saving tips!
Check out my curls using just two simple ingredients: (and this is 2nd day hair y’all!)
So my main focuses are:
1. Being healthier – mind, body & soul
2. Getting in control of my life & myself.
3. Save money & make safer products for my family.
Should be fun! I hope you’ll join me this year in making 2014 the start of something special!
Do you have any plans for a happier & healthier you? Please share them!
