Of course, there’s still the “Mommy go faster!” and “You’re done already?” But at least I got something of a workout in on the treadmill! Plus they were so excited and actually thanked me for bringing them down in the basement while I worked out.
Well, trying. After a holiday week – and then some – of binging (belated holiday wishes!) I am back on the ketogenic way of eating. Trying to get back in a rhythm that I was in before the holidays tanked me. I’m slowly returning to keto food prep and attempting one new recipe a week that’s keto-friendly.
I’ve also read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and we have redone our bedroom and master closet and now I’m ready and raring to go on that!! Tomorrow begins The Great Purge of 2018, which is the year I’ve decided to KonMari the sh*! out of my house!!
I’m also working with Easton more on his phonics and reading, which is an area he is having a bit of trouble with, and the mom guilt is shaming me for it. So I’m pledging each day to read with him and work on his letter sounds and sight words. So far he is loving the readers I printed out and all of the Level 1 books I’ve purchased that he can read and learn to read.
Also in this year is my journey to return to playing soccer. I’ve been out for a couple years due to a concussion and post-concussive symptoms, but a piece of me has been missing ever since, and I’d like to attempt to get back out on the field, if only for pickup games. Along with that is my goal of just getting back in shape, since I’ve gotten far off track in that area. (It’s sad when I have to sit after 2 flights of stairs!)
Plus I have some amazing trips and events planned this year that I’m really looking forward to, and basically I want to share all of it with you guys. It’s really selfish though because writing it down and getting it out is totally therapeutic for me, but hopefully you guys enjoy the ride too. Please comment, comment, comment with helpful suggestions and share your own 2018 journeys!!!!
