If you have been reading the blog for a while then you know that I tend to disappear in the months of January and February. It’s due to horrendous weather and my crazy time of the year at work. December wasn’t great either, weather-wise. I’m on the final stretch of the craziness at work, and we had a few warm days so I could get out and take a few pictures.
So what else has been going on?
I’ve been really good about going to the gym. I’m averaging about 5 times per week. Yes, it sucks waking up at 5:00 AM and hitting the gym before work, but I’ve noticed that if I skip, I really regret it. I feel SO much better when I go to the gym. It really has improved my energy levels and my mental health. I’m less impacted by stressful days. I haven’t lost much weight, but my body is changing. I’m more toned. My thighs have gotten smaller and I have a wee bit of muscle definition in my arms. Go me.
I’m still growing my gray/gray hair out, but I don’t know if I can handle it. It’s been about 6 months and it’s at this super awkward phase. I either have to chop off all my hair, or start highlighting it again. I’m not sure which option is going to win out. I have a hair appointment next weekend, so don’t be surprised if I succumb to the hair dye. I’m weak you guys. I’m a weak, weak, quitter.
My son got his driver’s license and it’s so hard letting him get in a car and just GO. OMG. My baby! Oh, and insurance… Good grief. That’s super expensive now. Kids are expensive.
Do you guys find this time of year hard for fashion/clothes? I’m never inspired by this time of year. I’m bored with my cold winter clothes, boots, and coats. However, I refuse to buy more because frankly I don’t need any more sweaters, boots, or coats. It’s too cold to wear spring clothes, plus I hate spring colors. So, I’m mixing and matching my favorite pieces. Over and over and over…
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope everything is going well in your part of the world.
