I suck at blogging lately.
I feel like I am in a continual state of catching up. I want to keep this as my online scrapbook but I can't seem to make it here regularly so I think I am going to not stress so much about the frequency and focus on the content. If I don't have anything to post, then I won't. Maybe two or three times a month is all I can do right now and that's o.k.
I never did get around to posting about my birthday and now it seems so long ago. It was a wonderful day. Low key and nice. My sister got me a Keurig(I know!).
Oh my gosh I am in love. How did I ever live without this thing in my life?
O.K. that might be slightly overdramatic but I really love it. The coffee is just so good and it is prefect for when I am running out the door and don't have time for a whole pot of coffee to brew. It even has a small filter than you can use your own coffee in if you don't want or run out of the K cups it uses. Love it.
Here I am with my birthday cake, that Joe insisted on putting all 41 candles on and it almost burned the house down. Seriously. That was a lot of smoke when I blew those out.
Let's see, what else?
I made a pact with myself(not a new year's resolution-those never last :) to eat healthier and exercise more. I am following a program but I won't bore you with the details her but it is working so far and I have lost some weight which makes me very happy.
I am back to walking and am loving it. I forgot how much I loved it until I started doing it again. Funny how that works. Also funny(but not really) how easy it is to not do it, even though you know you will feel better afterwards.
I have also started doing quite a bit of yoga(thus the lotus flower at the top of the post. I have only recently discovered them and they are so beautiful!) and I love how I feel afterwards. I have a couple of beginner's tapes that I really love and aren't that difficult for my out of shape body to do. Overall I am just starting to feel better.
I have an fun trip coming up and I am beyond excited. I have already have some of my outfits planned out and it's still a month away. Lisa said I am weird but I haven't been on a real vacation in two years and I can hardly wait. A girl can never be too prepared!
