So, this really isn't about horses. I need to get back in the saddle again. I need to get organized, again. I need to start working out, again. I need to be a better mother, wife, daughter, again. I need to eat better, again. I need to sleep better, again...again, again, again. I keep waking up each day and saying 'Tomorrow will be the day' and guess what, tomorrow never comes. Truly, it never comes. So I need to make it today. I am running out of excuses. I'm tired, I'm slightly overweight, I have situational ADD (wish it was ADHD, as I might actually have some energy!) and I want my freaking life back. I'm not depressed or anything, overwhelmed might be more like it. I have a husband who works full time, as well as goes to school full time. I am his secretary, his cook, laundress, seamstress, housekeeper, best friend and lover. That is a lot of freaking hats. Then I have the three kids...secretary, taxi, cook, personal assistant, runner, bank, scheduler, teacher, warden, hairdresser, nurse, doctor, and lets not forget resident ass-wiper.
I need a list. I constantly make lists. Lists that generally never get followed, but I have high hopes I can start following one. I need it written out in front of me. I need to see it. I am tempted to post pictures as before/after...but only after the after. So, here is my list:
- Take before picture
- Do 100 crunches/sit ups a day
- Walk at least one mile a day
- Restart the C25K program...or something like it.
- Have more sex.
- Get outside more.
- Organize and get rid of shit.
- Turn 35
- Take after shot.
I turn 35 six moths and 4 days from today. That is my goal. I have not a goal to reach a certain weight, look a certain way, or have a perfect house. I just want to be comfortable in my skin, and have a house that I wouldn't be mortified if someone rang the doorbell.
Here's to getting old!
