"Resolutions" Update

So, I feel very good about my "New Year Resolutions" this week. I have had somewhat of a quiet time and praise time in the mornings. I've been listening to praise music on the way to school and it's just a wonderful time to prepare for the day.

I have made very good eating choices all week. (Well, Thursday is my weigh in day, so Thursday night is my *free* meal). :)

However, I haven't been able to get back to the gym this week. I rode my bicycle on Saturday and all I can decide is that I did something to my ankle then. On Monday, I looked down at my ankle and it was 3 times the size that it normally is... and the more the day went on, it started to hurt. So, I've been nursing a swollen/hurt ankle that I have no idea what is wrong OR how I hurt it. But I figured it would be best to NOT do any exercise, especially since I'm on my feet most of the day.

New Beginnings

Okay, so normally, you make New Years' Resolutions in January, right? Well, I need to make some life changes and I'm starting tomorrow. (Tomorrow, because it's 9:45 pm). I figure if I announce my changes I want to make here on the blog... maybe I'm apt to stick to them.

Like most newlyweds, I have gained all my weight that I lost before the wedding. Sadness... and now, since I got rid of all of my "pudgey clothes"... I have a limited wardrobe. So, my first order of business is to go back to healthy eating and LOSE weight. I'd like to lose most of it by Thanksgiving (as we're going on a cruise and I'd really like to wear my fun clothes on the cruise).

My second order of business is to continue working out. I started an awesome workout schedule this summer, but since school has started, I'm having a hard time working it in to my schedule again. So... at least workout 3 times a week.

My other "new beginning" is to get back into a better habit of having an actual quiet time. I am really feeling the loss of that in my life and I really need to get back into doing that instead of being so concerned about my email or facebook.
