Tropical Storm Weather Coming In From Hurricane Irene
Guess New England is getting hit by this Hurricane Irene, but by the time it…
This is my first week participating in 52 to Fabulous, I just love the positive ring to that, don’t you? I am forced to focus on my wants this week rather than my needs, which I will admit is very hard for me. I haven’t been one to ever focus on anything I simply want, it’s always been about my family’s needs, but I can do this!
I have a picture of me in my varsity cheerleading outfit from at least ten plus years ago and I find myself thinking back to the size 8 I was then and oh how fat I thought I was. Now here I am a size 15 and I don’t feel all that fat, but I do long to be back in that size 8. After having three children and just two of them exactly 2 years and 6 days apart my body has certainly not been happy and it’s decided to slack off a bit. So I really want to lose 85lbs, don’t really care what size that puts me in, as long as it gets my BMI back down to a healthier level.
I want to be financially independent, this isn’t a bad thing. Some woman love being that stay at home mother while the husband works outside of the home but I enjoy being able to feel confident regardless of how hard my husband works knowing that I can pay my own bills should something happen to our relationship or to him while he’s out working. I want to know that no matter what I am financially free from anyone, it’s just something I long to feel again.
I want to be more focused on potty training my son who turned 3 in August and doesn’t have any interest in using the big boy potty. I admit it’s my fault for not focusing all possible efforts on encouraging him and I want to make the encouragement of potty time a focus for him during the day while I am home with him. I have slacked because quite simply changing a diaper with this defiant three year old is easier than trying to talk him into shooting cheerios in the toilet bowl.
I want a touch PC, I love the new HP one and I would bow down to all if that was something I could have in my pretty little hands! I think the HP Touch PC would be a fantastic addition to my small home as a way to save space, not to mention I am sure it’s way more energy efficient than my current beast of a custom PC.
I want to learn to love the little things again, to love everything around me and to focus on that love in a way that allows me to laugh again at all the little things. I long to laugh so hard I cry while crawling around with my children. I have allowed the stress of other situations get in the way of Mommy and children laughter time and it’s time I laughed again.
I want to remember to exercise on the Wii Fit and EA Sports Active every day to ensure I lose that 85lbs this year!
There you have it, I know I am not super creative but man it was hard to come up with “wants”.
