Out with the OLD and In with the NEW!
In keeping with this "Out with the Old and In with the New" theme, I will now post my last finished project from 2009 (Blue Babushka) as well as my new project from 2010 (Lacy Baktus).
Okay, I normally do not make New Years Resolutions however I am in the mood for a huge change in my life. Therefore I am committing to losing some of the weight I put on over the last 5 years! I am not going to do this by going crazy on some diet, but by changing my lifestyle.
One of the reasons for this change, other than the obvious...I want to be healthier, is I intend to run the Susan G. Komen 5K (3.2 miles) in October in honor of my Mom, Melody, who survived breast cancer. I have wanted to do this for a long time as I know any money I help to raise will benefit us all, but also because she was very courageous in her fight against breast cancer.
A second reason for getting fit is because I want to feel better about myself, and even though I will be the same person whether I am thin or chunky, I will have more confidence in myself if I lose the weight. Now, with more confidence I may actually start contemplating the idea of dating again.
So I say again...Out with the Old and In with the New!
What are your plans for the New Year?
