Some soul searching

I joined this group on Facebook, the Hugs and Bacon Tribe. It is run by this guy who is kind of a big deal in paleo - The Civilized Caveman. The group though is about more than eating or diet. It is about finding your best self. About discovering what is holding you back and moving through it. About being positive and making progress no matter how small. I had just decided, earlier this week, that I needed to take a couple of steps back. The things I was trying to do was too much, too soon. I needed to go back to the beginning and take baby steps. That was when I found the group. Timing really is everything. The first thing he had us do is make a calendar and pick one new habit for the month. We also had to come up with a positive affirmation statement to say to ourselves all the time. So I picked the habit of walking in the morning and yoga in the afternoon. My affirmation statement is; I am a strong, motivated, and confident woman. I did well with both of these things for 2 days and…

We were supposed to close on the house on Wednesday, but that didn't happen. Due to having to pay some things off and frankly me dragging my feet, we are now waiting. Waiting.

Today we went here. It was really cool. We walked and walked and walked and then took the train around. It was really a lot of fun. Plus there was some beautiful artwork there that I want to go back for once we move. Very cool.

So since the 4th, things have fallen into a kind of rhythm. I get up in the morning and go for a walk/run. Then I get Hubby up and we take the dogs to the dog park. After an hour or so, we come home and jump in the pool before breakfast. The days after that have been pretty lazy. On Sunday we never even left the house and I took 2 naps. Realizing that we can't spend the next 2 weeks or so that way, I have made a list of things to do. We will be doing something every day. Today was the first one and the ghost town won out. Of course, that will be hard to top.

I have been getting my steps in and that is awesome. I've also completed the first week of couch to 5k and I'm very proud of myself. Food has not been great. I need to get a handle on that an…
