Did I say hot? I meant....HOT. Really HOT.
My little one has been walking around with a terry headband on. You know, like tennis players wear? Nope, he isn't playing tennis. He's just watching the movie GARFIELD. Again. Although, I must say, he can get pretty physical while watching TV...
Can you believe June is almost history? The days are flying, flying by. We are spending many of them in our little backyard pool. Best investment ever! I'm sure we will spend most of July the same way. It is hard to wrap my head around the fact that the summer break is about half over. I love having all of my boys at home.
I also love the easy days of summer. However, I do find myself wasting a lot of time. I have things I want to do and things I need to do, places to go, people to see, etc. etc., but I seem to spend a lot of time turning in circles. Or doing nothing. Maybe I should create a schedule for myself... (Set some Internet time limits, maybe???)
May 1st, I made some changes in my diet. I went to a low-carb, no sugar style of eating. The first two to three weeks were HARD. I felt like crap. It has gotten easier and my cravings for sweets are gone. I can even drink water now!
Now, I do feel the urge to indulge occasionally. I can't be perfect, right?? Overall, I've been running a tight ship and I'm feeling better, stronger. And after years and years on the same thyroid hormone med, it's now way too much for me. Weird! Could this be the result of my cleaner eating?
I've lost a little weight-about 20 pounds, give or take a couple. It's slow and I know that's mostly because of my lack of exercise. (Not to mention my ummm...advanced age.) It's coming off, though, and that's what matters. I'm just trying to be a healthier me this year. And yes, I do plan to get off the couch and add some type of exercise.
Well, the laundry is calling me. And so is the pool. So, I will leave you with this photo...
Just because it's been a while.
