Putting it all out there… or, the ugly fat roll

Well, it’s Monday! I hope your weekend was as fabulous as ours. We were blessed with such wonderful weather, and today is no different. The sun is out, it is probably over 70. They are forecasting this for the week. It is this time of year that we all take inventory of our lives and our surroundings. How many posts have you read in blogville or on facebook about Spring Cleaning? OR that diet to get ready for Summer? And me? Seriously, no different.

I have some big plans… It seems I always have big plans… It’s the follow-up that I stumble a bit on. I guess that’s one of the things I like about blogging. Putting it out here, no matter how few or many actually get to reading it, makes it a commitment. Anyways back to my goals for the next few weeks…

*after writing this, I realized I missed the most important part – Get my application done and jewelry ready to be looked over to see if I can put it in a local shop. That happens on Weds!

1) I have been given a wonderful opportunity to read and review a new eBook titled The Good Wife’s Guide by Darlene Schacht. If you don’t know who she is, she has a blog called The Time-Warp Wife. I found her blog last week, and fell in love. She writes with the heart of a servant. Kindly guiding and nudging us to be our husband’s “Help-Meets” – offering guidance on how to maintain and run the home. You can also find her bible studies (she is currently 6 weeks in to the book of Esther, one of my favorite books).

2) As a subset of #1, I need to get my house “Spring Clean-ed”. Denise has a great outline of deep cleaning in those rooms we just can’t seem to keep control of. I am also completely gutting my clothes. I have FAR too many, none of which even fit me anymore. Some too small, some too big, some too short… And don’t even get me started on the shoes…

3) SOCKS… I knitted my first pair of socks, and have fallen in love. I am now working on a pair for Kevin – he chose black, ug – I have the first one all but done, and would like to have them done and be on to my next pair ASAP.

4)Finances… Kevin and I have been going to financial classes at church (Dave Ramsey’s Financial PEace University) and we have been going gangbusters on our budgeting. The biggest part for us is grocery shopping/meal planning and NOT eating out.

5) Personal spring cleaning… I went back to the gym today after not going for over a month. I had done so well leading up to our January cruise. Once we got back I really lost my workout mojo. (along with my crafting mojo). I had been doing so well, and went from 187 to 172 (yes, that’s pounds people). I weighed myself this morning, and I am back up to 175. I thought it would be more, as I have that wretched back fat roll that makes my bra uncomfortable. I would really love to be fit for summer. I don’t care what my bathing suit looks like, I just want to be able to run around with my kids all summer and not have to stop to catch my breath or adjust by waste band.

6) Work on my Anniversary Quilt!!!!!

I guess that’s all for now, but there you have it. Not my normal type of blog today, just a little accountability check…

What’s on your Spring List?
