I'm trying something different. A "Two Week Total Body Turnaround".
Wait, did I just hear someone chuckle? Only a stupid person would think you can turn obesity around in two weeks.
Trust me, I am not stupid. However, I am counting calories and working out for an hour each night.
Did I say an hour?
Yes, I said an hour.
An entire sixty minutes.
Devoted to myself.
I find it hard to believe, too.
This time. This week. This chance. This begninning. I am going to make it four days. Because I can. Because I have what it takes within me. Because I deserve it.

I don't have a full length mirror in my home so I don't often look at my rear end. Now I'm thinking that I should invest in one. Before the jiggle gets any worse. Before my random eating gets so far gone that my only option is to audition for The Biggest Loser...
The Bottom Line: I need to lose some jiggle! TODAY!

While on this trip, I did not drink four huge cups of coffee and therefore suffer from a caffeine crash later in the day. Not me!
I did not miss the "football" part of the football party that evening. And it was not me who drank a bottle of wine all by herself. It was not me who neither used profanity while in this crazy state, nor forgot a few conversations that evolved over the course of the night. I would not do any of the afore mentioned things at a party that included my child care clients.
And I would not seriously consider therapy after the events of Black Friday, 2009!

One of the most important things that I have learned after five years in the child care business is... Keep a routine! When I say "routine", I don't mean that at precisely 12:53pm each and every day at my child care program, we lay down to sleep. It means that each day, we eat our lunch, use the restroom, wash our hands and then lay down for rest time. In that order. Bed time works the same way for my own children. Children love routine! They know what to expect. No surprises.
Of course, I cannot guarentee that they will all sleep every day, or that their naps will last for the same amount of time each day. Hey, I'm not a miracle worker here... but I do have all eight children sleeping right now. And that's routine!

You know you've been neglecting your blog when you can't even remember neither the password to log into Blogger, nor which email address you used to create your account!
I think I'm having a mid-middle-thirties crisis here. Or perhaps it is just that we are approaching the holidays and I feel completely unprepared. I feel so unprepared and apathetic that I have been sitting at my computer staring at my homepage, hoping an answer will just appear on my moniter. These are some of the questions running through my head...
What do I put on my childrens' Christmas wish list when they don't need anything and we don't have any more space for things they want?
How am I going to get my holiday baking done when we have plans every weekend from now until 2010?
My house is a cluttered mess! Can I clean it in time for the holidays?
Why am I blogging when I should be de-cluttering?
