The beautiful Sophia Chang has given me a chance to share a day in my life posted at her blog, Sophia The Writer. Come check it out here. Try not to laugh too hard :-)
Now, I can't speak for others, but I haven't done the best job of taking care of me. Actually, I've been rather pathetic. Guess that comes as part of that whole sacrificial bit of putting kids first or something. But as part of my main goal of "finding balance in my life" in 2012, I slipped something important into the mix. Take better care of myself.
Toward this end, I've started making better eating choices. I no longer squee with zealous joy at finding whatever chocolate, deep fried, smothered concoction I got my hands on. Paying attention to portion size has been a huge help. And I've been very realistic about my results. My waistline hasn't always been a jolly replica of the Buddha belly. It took some time to get to this point. And the tasty food along the way has been scrumptious.
As with my writing, I'm making slow but steady progress in the weight loss area, having dropped fifteen pounds since the beginning of the year. What are some other facets of YOU that may need a little more attention?
