I am participating in the Blogging From A-Z Challenge. Each day in April (except the last 4 Sundays), I will post topic themes that begin with the letters of the alphabet, from A-Z. Today's letter is Z.
It's the end!!!! Woo-hoo!!!!!!
This challenge could not end any sooner b/c my poor brain is zapped. There is nothing going on inside my head tonight and as I type this, I don't even know where it's going to go. In addition to this challenge, there is a lot going on in my world. As brain dead as I may be, I'm not complaining. Sure, I'm tired & ditzy, but it's all for a good reason. I've got the usual family stuff, working, volunteering at the book exchange, I'm participating in the MDA Lock-up, I'm also participating in a walk for Williams Syndrome that Trin's old daycare provider is organizing, and we just booked our trip for Disneyland. The MDA Lock-up & WS walk are both in May, only 4 days apart. So needless to say, it's going to be a busy month.
I'm also very proud of the hubs & I for sticking to our nightly workout routine all last week. We did a lot of yard work last weekend, as well. I've been watching my calories, drinking a lot of water, and taking my vitamin every day. The only thing I'm doing differently now from the last time I lost weight is I'm not eating dairy. (Which I'm hoping will help w/ the weight loss since it's already helped w/ my upset stummy issues.) I want to be healthy & stay healthy, but I'm not going to lie to you or myself & say that's all I care about. I most definitely want to lose weight. I weighed myself on our old scale & it said I was 170, but when I stepped on the digital scale it said 174. I'm going to stick w/ the high number b/c I'm guessing it's more accurate. Which means I've had to change my goal a little to a total of 44 lbs I want to lose. Again, I'm not expecting to lose it all by our Disneyland trip in October, but I'd like to be well on my way. I have to renew my driver's license on my birthday this year, so I'm aiming to be in noticeably better shape in time for my driver's license photo.
All-in-all, I'm in a good frame of mind. This challenge has zapped my creativity more than it helped so I'm looking forward to taking a few days off & letting inspiration hit me rather than searching it out & putting out a post I'm less than proud of. I hope all those who have read my blog during the last month have found at least 1 or 2 posts you can relate to or enjoyed. I apologize that I haven't managed to comment on many other folks' posts, but I assure you, I do read a good many of them. Now that I'm not pushing myself to post something every day, I'll be able to go back & read a lot more blogs, which I'm very much looking forward to.
Congrats to all who completed the A-Z Challenge. Now I think I'll reward myself with a glass of cheap wine & a trip to the store for some toilet paper!
I'm a thirty-something mom & wife. I over-think everything, then I blog about it. I write for myself, not because I believe everything I say is hugely important. I just hope maybe someone will read it & be entertained or inspired. At the very least, it makes me feel better to have somewhere to dump my thoughts & fulfill my urge to write.
