Before I do a massive holiday photo drop, I just want to say a few things.
I have been majorly neglecting this blog. I am sorry, not sorry, about this. Obviously I have had the kids off, which is the greatest distraction known to man. They go back in about 4 weeks time. Counting down.....
Cocktail friday is no more. Believe me, it was fun while it lasted. But I always find things set to certain times stressful, and this diminishes my motivation. I am also taking August off alcohol (now I have written it down, I have to do it!). I enjoy my months with out booze, though it does take a little getting used to. I am not drinking to excess, but feel like I need to give my body a break.
I want to get a lot fitter. I have my Zumba basic and Zumba Gold licenses, but if I ever want to do anything about instructing classes, I need to improve my stamina. After Kiawah, I went on a bit of a health kick regarding food. Instead of eating 3 big meals a day, I was having breakfast about 7.30, a large snack about 11, a small lunch about 2, and then eating with the family. I also tried to minimize my carbs a bit. Because of this, I was using less insulin. I also just felt healthier. I was also polishing my choreo on some Zumba songs, and stretching in the mornings while the boys did their computer time. It made me feel really good. I was exercising in the morning 3 days a week, then going to at least 3 Zumba classes in the evening each week. As I said, I felt good!
So I am going back to this regime. If you want to know how I am doing this, I can post it on here. Comment below or on Facebook if you would like to see this. I also want to start running. I may try and get the boys involved in this, help wear them out. I want to do a run, like a 5k or something, in the next few months.
I feel good when I exercise. I just need motivation sometimes!
When the kids go back to school, I am going to start crafting again. I saw so many quirky things on holiday, and my ultimate thought was 'I could make that', so I didn't come back with too many souvenirs this year! Watch this space. I have many, many ideas. I will make a few sample things, then try and sell them on eBay/Facebook. I *may* even go down the Etsy route, but seeing as i know little about this, i am not sure..... I am excited about this, and reckon it could be fun. I don't expect to make any money, but if i can cover my costs that would be great.
Thats what is happening with me.
Next up.... A massive photo drop......
