Because I'm here now.
Okay, so my first project update is this:
See this adorable young woman? That is what I looked like prior to children.
This is what I look like now:
Obviously not my best angle, but you get the picture. I've gained a little weight since having my daughter.
One of my biggest obstacles between myself and a normal, healthy pregnancy that will hopefully end without surgery is to lose some weight.
A lot of weight.
Problem? I am completely and totally unmotivated.
Well, that's not entirely true. I do want to lose weight, and I have great reasons (besides wanting to get pregnant).
I just can't seem to muster the will power to help me through this, to put me on the path to a healthier lifestyle.
So this is what I'm battling right now (in addition to making sure I take my prenatals). I'm hoping I'll have some sort of epiphany over the weekend and come Monday I'll be on board with some sort of weight-loss program.
Wish me luck, right?
Next update: Pioneer Project
Cooking/Baking - This part is way easy to nail. Right now I've got a Sweet Potato Dinner going in the oven, which will be followed up by a custard dish, with most of the ingredients coming locally. (Maybe it's all this good food that's thwarting my weight-loss?)
Homesteading - Major gardening project (well, we'll see how major it is, but I'm hoping for a huge transformation) starts tomorrow. My mom and I are looking to make some changes to the garden just in front of our porch in the morning. I will definitely try to remember to take some before and after pictures. I can't wait to get started!
Technology - I don't have time for technology any more... Other than a little bit of T.V. each night, I haven't had much time with my laptop or iPad. I'm almost sad about this.
Spirituality - We might go to church on Sunday? (I'm trying, I promise.)
Family - Major fail this week. Epic freaking fail.
Let's hope for fewer fails this week. (And, again, let's have more pictures next time, kay?)
