Time for a change...

Hmmm so is it being 40?  Is it a mid-life crisis?  Or do I just need to take stock and alter a few things here and there?

Nothing major, don't get me wrong.  Things are fine and dandy over here but I would like a bit of change personally, within me.

1.  I need to want to lose a bit of weight.  Not a lot, half a stone maybe, because that half makes me unhappy and doubles my face (and my hereditary weak chin) and then I look like a giant beachball.  I dislike having a beachball for a face.  I really do!

2.  I need to go back to yoga.  It's been forever since I did any.  I love how it made my mind feel and how it made my body feel.  I feel stiff and old.  I do not like this feeling.  The only problem is, the nearest class to me is on a Tuesday morning when I'm in school.  I am searching for a very good dvd so I can yoga and meditate at home.  Providing the girlies and dogs let me that is!

3.  I have to cut out the crap that I eat.  In fact, that we all eat.  Hubby has gone vegetarian and whilst I admire that in him, that path is not for me.  Well it would be bloomin difficult considering I don't eat very many vegetables anyway (or tomatoes, but they're a fruit) and I'm dairy free so that rules out quite a bit of food that way.  So meat-eating will continue, but some of the sugar, nay, lots of the sugar needs to be reduced (see point 1 above).  I haven't told the girlies yet, but when the biscuits are gone from the cupboard this time around, it will be a limited stock next time.  We all eat too much sugar.  We need to find an alternative.

We've just come back from a lovely three-day break in Enid caravan.  We went to Ludlow which is only just over an hour from here.  I'll blog a bit of what we did soon, but it's hubby's new place for us to move to!  Just need to finish building this house first!!!

So that's what's going on here, with me at least!

  1. Great post and good luck with it :0)

  2. Wow, that is what I need to change in myself! The sugar is the top priority for myself and my daughter. We have a tendency to eat sugar when we get upset or very bored! I did yoga so many years ago that I will be treating it like it is a new thing. My daughter is going to do it with me. It helps so much with stress and is so calming. I really enjoy your blog. Have a wonderful weekend!
