I have two main lists going that don't include things like groceries etc….my monthly list that has things I want to get accomplished in the month of January for example, as well as a regular to do list. The monthly list has big things (steam clean carpets - done!, learn to use Photoshop Elements..etc..) and the regular list is really long and I have been attacking both with great relish. I'm feeling very good and very accomplished these days.
I've been committed to making bread every Monday which is quite a bit of work but is just so much better than buying bread in the store, plus the house smells amazing. I've also been doing lots of other baking for Chris and the kids lunches…muffins, breads, cookies etc.. This is great for the lunches but the major downfall is then I eat it too. Not good for the waistline whatsoever. The holidays were rough, lots of eating and drinking and general merriment to the tune of a nine pound weight gain. Granted, I weighed myself after a big meal and just before bed so it was a "heavy" time and my next weigh in was down three pounds. Still…that's a six pound gain. That's a lot. I just can't seem to get myself on the weight loss train. Everything else I'm 100% motivated on but curbing the eating and serious cardio?? Not so much. I'm hoping it will come...you know…all on it's on…I'll just magically want to eat salad and run 5K every day…. yeah….I'll keep you posted on how that works out…
So that's a little update on how I've been doing and feeling the last little while. I thought I'd share some of my current playlist with you as well, it's always easier to work on crossing those things off the old to do list with some good tunes playing in the background. Here's what I'm loving:
Yin Yang by USS - probably my favourite at the moment.
Rude by Magic - so stuck in my head right now!
Timber by Pitbull (feat. Kesha) - this song just makes me want to dance
How I Feel by Flo Rida - Flo Rida can always be counted on for a good ear worm
Adore You by Miley Cyrus - This song slows it down a little and I love it.
Those are my tops favourites of the moment, hope you enjoy!
