Wow... Just wow!

That was one of my facebook updates yesterday. It's pretty funny when you post simple things like that.
Your typical responses... ???.... what??... are you pregnant?
for the record... no, i'm not.

Long story short...We (the hubby and I) have re-evaluated our future.  We talked... thought... and did calculations, and equations and ...

We're buying a house. 

We've found one we like, and we're going for it. 
We had a few things we were looking for... 
decent size kitchen. 
room for my office
and a back yard bigger then 6 feet deep.

so we found one.
we're put an offer on it.
we'll have to see...

The down side... we'll have to switch to the new school. 
The upside... we'll be walking to school... and it will take about 6 min... maybe.


And in other news...
I'm doing well on weight watchers...down another 4 lbs this week...

And my anxiety is very slowly getting better. I can get back down to walmart.

That's my update.
Carry on.

It's a new day

Today i'm not talking about my "issues". (how about we just call it that for now)
see... already talked about it too much.

So, i'm back on weight watchers. I have to be.
I haven't been to a meeting yet. I was going to go with my sister last Saturday but nephew was sick, and it just didn't happen.

I haven't been great at tracking. I never have been.
Something about writing down everything you eat makes you accountable for it. But that's the point isent' it? I have so far found that i've been a little more conscious of what i'm eating. today i started tracking again. Looked up a few recipes to try this week. (not like i can go anywhere) (see.... them issues sneak in everywhere)

tonight ~ balsamic chicken with mushrooms and brown rice (brown rice is a power food = more fibre = more filling)

tomorrow i'm eyeing a cabbage casserole

this should be fun.

off to the elliptical for the next 5 min.
yep. 5 min is about all i can do.
but look at it's this way

it's 5 more min then i did this time last week.

carry on.

Ding Ding Ding

Welcome to the biggest battle of the year!
Good vs. Evil
The preverbal David vs. Goliath! A battle years in the making.

In one corner we have the grand daddy of all piss offs. 
the rain on her parade.
the shit on her shoe.
Anxiety.!!!! (insert booing noise)

In the other corner…
the underdog that refuses to give up.
the one that keeps coming back for more.
the ray of sunshine behind the clouds....
crystal!!!! ( i hope your making that haaaaaaa fanfare noise)

Yep. i'm doing it again. How far will I go this time? I can't answer that.
But... I can at least try. That's all that life is right? A succession of achievements and failures?

so... here's the list for the year.

1) Work on my anxiety. This is already proving to be a tricky one.

2) Work on a healthy me. I would like to lose 30 lbs this year.
     At 3 lbs a month... this should be obtainable.
     Also lay off the pepsi & coffee's ... not as obtainable

3) Complete 4 schooling courses.

4) Learn to sew... dunno why.

5) Look into cost saving for our family (so i can pay for said 4 courses...)
    couponing... fun, cost saveing. What can go wrong?

Other projects for my year...
Kayak the bedford channel 2x a week, from mayish to sept.
learn archery. sounds neat.

I'll leave it at that for now. It seems I always have things going.
But these are the ones i'm committing myself to.

At least for the next week.
Maybe 2...

A whole year.....

And sadly, it hasn't gotten any better.

My office is still a disaster

My anxiety is still there (and occasionally worse)

My kids still run my life.
