No, I’m not getting rid of Fitness Fridays. And yes, I know I’ve hardly done any of them as it is. But I do kind of miss my Week of Bliss series, so I decided to alternate the two on Fridays. So today, Week of Bliss, next week, Fitness Friday! 😉 And since my “week” will now actually encompass two weeks, I’m going to change the name to…
And sometimes it’s tough keeping it to just five!
1. Can you say SUNSHINE?!
2. Feeling GOOD!
3. Astrobrights Love
4. Getting caught up!
Between not feeling well and my busy schedule, I was getting so far behind it felt like I’d never catch up. (And I don’t think I realized just how much the not feeling well part was making an impact.) But in the past couple weeks I reduced my commitments a smidge, and have have been rockin’ and rollin’ getting things done. There’s still a lot to do, but I’ve been decluttering, donating, selling, organizing and cleaning…and it’s been WONDERFUL! Looking forward to this weekend to do even more!
5. Quitting sugar
I know. “Hasn’t she done that before? Wasn’t she quitting sugar a while ago?”. Yes. And for a while I did really well. And then not so much. So I’m quitting sugar again. Still. I couldn’t remember what I’d been doing in the fall that was making me so successful, but I came across a couple books that I thought would not only give me some information and motivation on my journey to cut sugar, but that also have some recipes I can try. The one I was reading today is Sarah Wilson’s “I Quit Sugar” 8-week detox plan & cookbook. I’m not going to get into it a lot now because I plan to talk about this topic for next week’s Fitness Friday, but quitting sugar is HARD. I need all the help I can get! So today while sitting in the warm sunshine, sipping lemon water and watching the kids play, I worked on a list of “to do’s” and things to buy at the store to get ready to “detox”. Not sure what had me more excited…the weather or the recipes I’m excited to try! I may have even come up with a fun birthday celebration idea for myself so that I can have fun but not be tempted by cake and cocktails! I’ll let you know as it gets closer. 😉
