I made a layout change to my blog to help bring in the new year! I hope you guys all like it, I thought it was pretty =) So I have been counting my points for about 1 1/2 days now and I made a discovery yesterday....SmartPop is not all that smart when you figure out the points! I would much rather melt real butter on air popped for 7 points! Oh well....we live and learn. That is what this is all about.....isn't it? Living and learning? Learning how to live a happy and balanced life? Well that is what it is about for me. No more over doing it, no more eating like crazy, no more dieting in weird ways. I need to apply what I have learned works for me and just do this. Not go crazy and workout for way too long and eat nothing...that is not sustainable.

So my choices today have not been perfect but they have been better. I am making sure I am adding more fruit and veggies and drinking alot of water. I hadn't been drinking much of anything over the holidays but I am back at it now and I feel SO much better. It is amazing what water does for your body. We also got out for a nice walk again today. It had been really nice having hubby home (since the 22nd) but I have to say that I am looking forward to him going back to work. I miss our daily routine and find myself overeating and not eating regularly. I think the second part leads to the first part. I love all the help but I need my routine back! Before I had Grace I had always said if I could be at work all the time I would be skinny because I all have to eat is the healthy options I brought with me ;) Now I find as long as I am in my routine I do better.

One day at a time.


  1. You go girl! That last sentence says it all.. we all need to realize that while we are on a long journey, it's easier to take it one day at a time.. :)

    Love the new background.. and I'm still working on figuring out the good vs bad for snack options.. like what is worth the point and what isn't..

  2. Thanks! There are going to be many days in my journey ;)

    It's nice to treat yourself with snacks sometimes, if I am going to spend alot of points I want it to be something I really like!

  3. One choice at a time, one day at a time- my Dr told me today that this was a marathon, not a sprint and that focusing on the overall picture and creating better lifelong habits was where it's at. Smart lady :)

  4. Learning how to live a balanced life is right on! We can't learn everything at once- small changes along the way make big differences. It's amazing how much we depend on our routines- I was starting to feel the same was as you and it feels good to be back to my routine!
