Okay so I maybe waiting for a lot of things to happen this year but really since we are waiting there are a lot of changes going on around here. Here are some of the things going on:
First I am super proud of my husband for wanting to change OUR diets to have healthier hearts. This year he has found out that not only does he have high blood pressure but his cholesterol and trygliserides are high too. He has made the decision to eat healthier. If you really know my husband you would know what a limited diet he has had and that it hasn’t been filled with very good foods. He has requested that WE eat better. I say OUR and WE because he can’t do it alone. WE as a family have to change. Last night I went to Meijer and for the most part didn’t go into the center of the grocery section. I only picked up 2 coke 2 liter and Mrs. Dash. I spent the rest of the time with all the fresh foods. Kendra of course was thrilled to see so many ‘real’ things. Ephriam was happier to see the fruit then the veggies but he will eat both with no problem. Tonight we had chili to dinner which for one serving was 190 calories! I know that I am feeling better by eating healthier.
Second WE are working out more. So far we have just worked on the elliptical for 15 to 20 minutes. I am hoping that as it gets nicer outside that I will maybe be able to run a little. Yes I know this week it will be nice but when it gets nice I have to work. I am also hoping that maybe by this winter I can own the Wii Active for a change up in work out. If not I will probably mix things up with Yoga every once in a while. I am for sure feeling better after I work out.
Third this year my first born will start going to school full time. No he won’t go to Kindergarten but I have a couple of other placement options. I am hoping that by the middle of May I will know for sure where he will be. This will be a rough transition for Kendra. Yesterday morning Kendra went to school with out Ephriam and she didn’t like that. She wanted him to go with her. She really enjoys them being together. However things much change. When this happens she will get to nap with me in my bed verses in her own since it will be just her and I.
Lastly things are changing around here to create margin. We are back to learning to say no to lots of good things to say yes to really good things. I am not sure how this is all going to pan out yet but we are working on it. Hoping this leads to more weekends at home this summer in the pool and laying in the sun.
So this is life right now. How are things with you?
