Today is New Year’s Eve which is also my dad’s birthday. Family legend has it that my grandfather made my grandma drink castor oil so she would go into labor before the end of the year. That way, they got the tax refund but no expenses for the actual baby that year. 😂😂
And it worked!
I am relaxing on the couch with my boys. I’m drinking coffee and working on some banking. We are going hard core this year. I feel like it took me a year to get a handle on the Dave Ramsey program. And now it’s time to have that “gazelle intensity” he speaks about. I’ve been listening to his podcast as I clean out my files and do tons of shredding. I am ready to be DEBT FREE!
I signed up for Weight Watchers online on Tuesday knowing I wouldn’t be having that great of a week. I haven’t done any meal prep, planning or shopping. But I wanted to get familiar with Smart Points. So I’ve used a LOT of those. I am at -132 or something. 😂😂😂 I also haven’t been to the gym a lot because my mom is out of town. But I worked out at home and or the gym through Wednesday and I am going to do a home workout today when Henry naps. It’s really important to me to work out today. It’s a big accomplishment for me to have worked out the whole year.
I am really motivated this year (2017) to lose a big chunk of weight. I think I have a good plan in place. I am really going to use all of the tools Weight Watchers has in place. I know at some point I will want to quit but I am hoping to stay focused.
I hope everybody has a fun and safe New Year’s. We are just hanging out at my house tonight and watching the Ohio State game.
It’s been a good Christmas break. I’ve made some progress on things I wanted to get done. 2017 is going to be the year I get rid of a bunch of excess stuff that is weighing me down. I got rid of a ton of stuff yesterday that I’ve been holding onto for years, such as bridesmaid dresses, ACT scores, books about baby sleep, old tacky frames… and much much more.
