So earlier this week, on the 22nd to be exact, I was really angry at myself. Angry that I haven’t been good to myself, I haven’t been as good a friend I want to be, nor have I been as good a part-time house wife as I could. I made some promises: to move more (exercise), to drink more water, to eat better, to stay up on my friends’ blogs, to manage my time better, to get back on the ball with my house. I don’t promise to become perfect overnight, but I promise to do better. I will live like the person I want to be.

How have I done? Well to be honest, pretty good. I got Google Reader up and going again and I’ve been reading blogs and commenting. Of course, I don’t have everyone on there, but this is a baby steps program for me. I feel a little bit like I know my friends better. My blogging friends, anyway. I’ve done better with water, most days. I’ve been eating better. I’ve been exercising more. My living room, kitchen, and master bathroom are extremely clean.

I’m pretty proud of myself. I’m living more like the person I want to be. And it feels great.

That is all.

    Good job having a better week. Just so you know as far as Mamavation there is a push to only read the first five posts ahead of you and five posts after you instead of all posts. Oh and I wanted to tell you… the owner of the Crossfit studio has a 5 year-old Vizsla that is a total doll. She is a cuddle bug before the workout starts.

    Thanks for the support and for letting me know about the posts! I’ve been using Google Reader over this last week to stay on top of things. That’s been helpful. :) And just plain awwwwww on the Vizsla. <3
