What Have I Learned?

One of the Angels that I used in my Project 365. Everyday, take a photo of something. This is on the retaining wall in the backyard. So far this year, I have learned that it is better for me to take several photos in one day and save them for the project. Hmmm, so it is not an honest view of my life, or is it?

I have done really well about exercising and eating right. Honestly, by now I have already cheated or munched my way through something that I know is sooo bad for me. I know that this is really for me. I have been writing to other people on "Spark People" that have some of the same issues that I do. I have found groups that I feel as though I have common traits. I even went to Mass.

So, often I skip Mass. I see the same people Monday through Friday when I go pick up my kids, so for a while I just wanted to have the whole weekend away from everyone except my family. There was a time when I loved going to Mass, but I did not like it when it seemed as though it was more of a chore than time out of my day I felt spiritually closer to God. Oh sure, I used to....but I think a lot of it has been that I have let my fat get in my way. What does that mean? It was an excuse for me. None of my clothes fit me any longer. I just have not felt closer to anyone being rounder.

Yesterday, I did feel good about Mass. I wore an outfit that was not my favorite, but I made the best of it. I even slammed on some war paint. (make up)

I have learned that I can not watch television after I drop off the kids. It is like poison gets inside my body, and I can't move. I can't get up to exercise or do all the other things that I need to do. I think this is going to be my magical blogging time.  I think I miss the sound of a social atmosphere going on in my house. That is what the television provides for me.

I like working out before I have my breakfast.

I call my mom and talk to her on face time as I put away the dishes. I hate holding the phone between my head and my shoulder.

Alright, it is getting close to my "goal" work out time.

Have a super great day.

Have you learned anything new about yourself this year?


  1. I really know well how Tv sucks the energy out of you.
    Beautiful picture by the way ;)

  2. That photo is great! I've got a new addiction to coffee. The problem is it's fat coffee. I'm already fat enough, thank you!
