Sugar Hangover

That was me for most of the day. I felt terrible. My head was pounding and I felt sick whenever I moved too fast, I thought that going for a walk would help but it didn't, so when I put the baby down for a rest I went to bed with a cold pack, and some advil. This was totally self inflicted though.
I was feeling sad yesterday because Joey left for six months so I thought that it would make me feel better to totally pig out on cake and cookies I am totally embarrassed by the amount that I ate and I can say that I won't be doing that again.

Today I am eating better and counting points again and I am hoping that in these 6 months I can get fit and actually lose weight. I want to be smoking hot to surprise Joey when he gets home.

I am also starting what I like to call Project De-clutter I read somewhere that in order to de-clutter your body and mind, that you must first de-clutter your surroundings. In my home there is clutter everywhere. We are pack rats and even though the house is only a year old, it is too full of "stuff" so I will be getting rid of stuff room by room, in order to make it a desirable, comfortable space for us all to live.

I also plan to paint in the New Year so we'll see how that goes. I am still trying to pick out colors and it's a pretty big job.

On an unrelated note, go over to Jackson's world and enter to win a waterpik.

Tea giveaway

I love tea, especially this time of year when the nights get colder. Check out Ashley's blog for a great mug and loose tea giveaway.

Life has been pretty hectic, and the eating has been meh, but I am slowly climbing back on the wagon. I am interested in doing clean eating/core and I just have to get organized and start planning my meals.
The main issue seems to be my time management, and organization skills. I am getting more organized, but I need to start planning my meals and exercise. I seem to have great intentions and then I get so tired and rushed that I just say forget about it and grab quick things. But with a little advanced planning and prep, I know I can do this. A menu plan will also help with the grocery bill too, since I am on a very tight budget now.

It is so scary that in less than 25 days I will be a single parent for 6 months!! to say that I am terrified is an understatement. Arianna will be just turning 1 year old, and I will be without my best friend. She loves her daddy so much and I am just so sad and anxious for how this will go.
I know we will be ok, it just sucks!

Anyway, I guess that's all for tonight, it's time for some pumpkin spice tea.
