Where Do I Go From Here....Well, it is officially over...#100DaysOfHomeEd. And while I have not finished all 100 days, I will be doing so in the days ahead. Sort of like that marathon runner who crosses the finish line long after the crowds have gone home. That is me! Oh, but what a time the past 100 days...three months have been. Just as we were moving into #HomeCrazzyHome and right in the middle of noisy electricians and dust that rivalled a small volcanic eruption...along came this opportunity.
First full day of diet...accomplished...CHECK. I even managed to make a half decent goulash with PRETEND meat...i.e. Quorn. And eat it too! As for more exercise...well, mowing and raking the backyard counts! But do you know the hardest part of all?
Yesterday I went to the doctor for my wrist. It has been bothering me...especially with all the painting, mowing and cleaning. Sometimes it is even hard to grip things and I get tingling. But none of that was as worrisome as stepping on the scales! What I saw was truly an awakening. Oh, I knew that I had put on some weight since moving in with Cookie Monster. I mean I am actually cooking three meals a day plus...cookies...cakes...pancakes...and all the rest. It was as if after five years of having no one to cook for (no, I did not cook for me) I was trying to catch up. But I had no idea it was THAT bad.
Today is our first anniversary! That's right Cookie Monster and I met for the first time one year ago today. Let me ask you...what would you think if someone took you home on the first date to meet her autistic child? Who was chasing her older sister around the house with a can of FAKE POO?
If April is not bad enough with...Awe-tism Acceptance month, #100DaysOfHomeEd, and all the work here at #HomeCrazzyHome...now we have Earth Day and World Book Day...back to back!!!! But as a blogger/writer and avid reader, there is no way I could NOT do something to celebrate books. So I thought I would share a good old-fashioned book report like I was taught to write...in those ancient days when I was in school. I am featuring my favorite author... M K Hume
NEVER ENOUGH! NEVER GOOD ENOUGH!!! I think it is one of the biggest lies out there. And yet...I fall prey to it all the time.
What do goals and a GPS system have in common?
