A Week and a Half into 2011 and What Have I Accomplished?
Well, let’s see… I have not officially given up the whole soda thing, but I am slowly working on it. I have gotten to the point that I am drinking a 12 oz can instead of a 20 oz bottle AND I am not drinking it every day! I have gradually increased my water intake and am sticking with teas. I just wish I could find a REALLY good Chai tea! I have tried 4 – count them 4 – different brands of tea in the “dreaded” tea bag (I prefer loose leaf tea) and none of them even come close to my Chai American from a company called Let’s Do Tea (which is no longer, mind you)! I am so disappointed. I even ordered from this company, but sadly, it doesn’t compare either. I am so bummed…
On a brighter note, I have started getting myself “moving” on a regular basis. Since I am an industrial nurse, I work in a manufacturing plant with around 1 million square feet. Needless to say, it is rather large and there is plenty of space to get out and go walking! I walk 2-4 laps nightly! I have also gotten to the YMCA a couple of times. This week has been tough with the snow that we recently got. However, I feel great with the exercise I have managed to get and I plan to “get moving” daily at the YMCA! I am not paying a membership for nothing! After I really get to going, I will start working on strength training, but for now, I am just doing cardio conditioning on the treadmill and up-right bicycle.
My iPod workout music is in need of some revamping however… So, itf you have any suggestions for me, I am all about fast-paced “old school”, keep in mind that I am 30-something and mostly a country girl, but I do like some of the “old school” pop/rock. Just need to add a few more songs to keep the speed up while I am walking/jogging/riding.
Finally, for January, I decided that my project would be coffee cup cozies. You can see them here. I am cranking them out faster than I can think of people to give them to. Depending upon how many I end up with at the end of the month, I may just have to host a GIVE-A-WAY in February. Would you all like that? I think it might be kind of fun! I have never done one and am kind of intimidated by it, but I am the kind of person that is willing to try anything once in a while! Just need to send a “Shout Out” for a few more followers! Can all of you help me out with that?
Thinking ahead for February, I need to find a new craft for February…guess I will need to start looking for something new that I have never done before! Hmmm….
