ok. well, here i go….so much to say today!

first on my new year’s resolutions….how are yours going?  i am trying to get healthy in all aspects of my life….here’s a little update on how things are going……day 21

  • first, i encourage any of you who are trying to watch what you eat or lose a few pounds, to try www.my-calorie-counter.com.  i love it!  of course, it is a little time consuming to journal every morsel that goes into your mouth, but it totally works!  it’s a gentle reminder that calories add up!  i think i started around the first of january and have lost almost 5 lbs, as of this morning.  now, i still drink my Non-fat Caramel Macchiotos from Starbucks, but i figure those into my calorie intake for the day.  Starbucks also offers new “skinny” drinks–fat free & sugar free!  this one is delicious!  i also have ‘upped’ my exercise routine to 6 days a week….it’s not easy, but it seems worth it.  (it’s dreadful some days, but having a tv in eye-shot of my treadmill sure does help.  ok, so enough rambling about calorie-counting….but if you need an extra kick!  try it!
  • next, i am t-r-y-i-n-g to have personal quiet time each day.  notice i said ‘trying’.  why is it, that this area of life always gets shoved to later in the day and later never comes?  anyways, to help in this area, i am also reading “Captivating” which is the current book in the book club.  i just started it this morning, but it seems like it is going to be up-lifting & encouraging.
  • another goal this year (especially these first winter months), is to scrapbook!  scrap-scrap-scrap!  i have a problem with continually purchasing new tools & paper (especially paper) and never sitting down to complete or even work on my MANY current projects.  so far so good.  my friend Lisa, (also a scrapper), and i have started meeting at eachother’s homes (which includes Subway Subs & Starbucks Drinks)  (after all, a girls gotta eat!  & a little caffeine doesn’t hurt either!!) to spend time scrapping.  such a great way to spend time with a friend, yet accomplishing your scrapbook project!!  also, i am trying to participate in Sunday Scrappin.  yesterday i spent about 4 hours scrapbooking, but never did post any of my projects.  i am finishing up an album for my sister…..3 more pages to go!!  yahoo!!!  then onto the next project!

well, that hits the highlights and i have rambled enough…..happy MLK day!  hope everone enjoyed the day off!  i know i did.

  1. Hi Krista! 😀
    It sounds like you are going strong with your resolutions! YEAH for you!!
    I’m getting ready to go workout. I love going to the gym, it’s good for me body and soul. I feel better physically and I have some ME time while I’m there too. I listen to my MP3 player and look at a good magazine. Well…not too GOOD…it’s usually one of those star gossip magazines. Oh well…nothing better than a little mindless trash to fill my mind with every once in a while!! ha..ha..ha.. 🙄
    I really like these little smilies! 😆
    Can you tell???!!! 😉

    Have a great day! 😎
    Jennifer =-)
