Pre Challenge Come back Ramble
This is the time of year when it is almost a given of human nature to look back. We have done the time and now it is time look back. A sort of sorting of the pictures of the trip we took. Always, we seem to want to do it better the next time around, don't we?
So I am listing in my mind the things I did and the things I want to do in "twenty twelve"!
Always (from forever and ever it seems) weight loss is on the top of the list.
What is different about twenty twelve to twenty eleven is that I get to start this year from the start in blog mode. Again apologies for the hiding. I knew in my heart that there had to be a time to stop before all of my past progress would have been lost.
A magical motivating NSV happened to me:
Already physically things are picking up. I feel those good feel endorphins after an outdoor session today with my grand babies. We hung out in front and rode our bikes around in circles. The winter desert sun was invigorating. We played this computerized dart board later. Pretty cool.
Desiree the older girl, she needs to get some activity. It is a priority for me to ensure this. I don't want the cruelty I faced as a young chubby to affect her little heart. It has started already a slight. Kindergartners are not that that cruel, but as the grades go up so does the level of name calling and mean girl encounters. No way not my Desi! The Y will be perfect for her. And she loves to swim! And they have great programs.
Thanks so much for all the comments. I am glad to be back on the blog. I will weigh myself on Saturdays, from now on maybe, but need to check the challenges fine print. LOL. I will have to nudge that ticker back just a slight. I peeked. Not so so bad. Made me not say yes to the corn bread muffins at dinner and the biscuit and gravy breakfast.
