Falling Off The Wagon

Two and a half weeks ago I had a little accident and I am sure I cracked at least one rib.I have been trying to take it easy on myself since.  I tried exercising once last week and I thought I was going to DIE! Every time I tried to breathe my ribs shot a pain through me that was worse than child-birth or even kidney stones, both of which I have endured more than once!

After that I said SCREW IT! I started hitting the sauce again. I know, I should have been stronger than that but I caved in. Maybe I should have called some one for help to talk me down, but I didn’t.

I have been hitting the sauce pretty hard too. I have had a nice cold one almost every night since I caved in.

Wednesday we took our boat out and went fishing and my ribs felt pretty good. They are still a little tender, but not bad. Yesterday and today I even managed to ride my bike again. I made it the entire 5 miles and I felt great afterwards. It’s amazing how good exercise makes me feel!

So now I must stop hitting the sauce. It will be a hard battle but I have done it before and I can do it again. I think I gained 10 pounds on my little down fall but I will shed that pretty quick I am sure.

So as of tonight I will NOT have my ICE CREAM and CHOCOLATE SAUCE!!

New Year Resolution

I am going to make a New Year Resolution for 2010: I am going to lose 30 pounds by next year!

There I said it! To help keep my promise I have started a new blog, As The Scale Turns. It’s my diet blog where I am going to post my weight weekly, write of any potholes I hit, and post any good recipes I find!

Feel free to join me if you want or just stop on by to keep me on my toes and out of the fridge!

I Blinked…Christmas Is Over!

It seems like I blinked and then Christmas was over. Why does it always take so long to prepare for Christmas and then POOF it’s all over in the blink of an eye?!

I told my girls if they woke me up before 6am Christmas morning that I would not be help responsible for their safety! They were nice and woke me up at 6:05! Even my husband was awake which is a Christmas miracle all on its own! I vaguely remember getting a cup of coffee and sitting on the couch and the next thing I knew they had opened everything! 

My kids enjoyed their presents which consisted mostly of board games and clothes this year. My husband and I agreed that the grill we recently bought was our Christmas present. My daughters bought me a little Elmo figurine and a pretty Snowflake necklace. My mother-in-law bought me a coffee cup that I swear holds 6 cups of coffee! I love it!

My husband gave the family the best present of all and he stopped drinking. He has been sober for 9 days now and I have high hopes that he will continue to stay sober. 

Now it’s on to the New Year, 2010, New Year Resolutions! This year I am giving up blinking for my New Year Resolution! Well that and I am seriously making a resolution to lose 30 pounds! Do you think if I blink that maybe the weight would come off as easy as it did going on?!
