A new me!!

Where has the time gone...seems like yesterday I just started here. I've had my ups and downs and mostly stayed about the same weightwise. I really need a new plan so going to try again for the upteenth time. I just don't want to waste my time on the computer that much to invest in the time here. I need to move more and utilize my time better to things that are important. I also need to downsize my "junk"...I'm slowly getting there and hopefully will be healthy along the way.

Saturday was a nothing day for me. I just puttered around the house.
Sunday was CCD class for my 2nd graders. I love those kids. They're so innocent. So it was CCD @ 10 and children's Mass @ 11. Then coffee and a horrible donut in the church hall.
My kitten needed attention later on. He's so lovable but a brat at the same time. He's in to everything and needs to be reminded who the boss is.
I'm staying home to get some odd jobs around the house done and to get some steps in.
Take care and be kind to yourself.

Did you take a stroll today?
I did not and just puttered around the house. I haven't hit 1,000 steps yet!

2 miles!! Only because I went grocery shopping and walked up and down the aisles.

Does that count?

I would love to be your SPARK buddy. Let's get together to form an exercise routine and food journal that we can do together. If you have any ideas just pass them on to me.
