A new beginning...

I am so glad it's spring. That is NOT something I normally say. I really really like winter - but I think cabin fever has set in at my house. Just the other day I told my 15 month old "quit being a jerk!" Hahahaha! What baby do you know that is a jerk? I laughed right then! Then I picked her up & hugged her...she just giggled. I am glad she is so forgiving of her scattered & stressed mama!

Spring is a time of renewal, refreshment and regrowth. I am always amazed at how the bulbs start to come up with snow still on the ground. Here in Kansas it seems like the snow just won't stay away! I am glad to be able to get outside, start garden planning and see SUNSHINE!

I think it's natural for us to want to start something new or refresh ourselves a bit in the spring. With that in mind I am starting a little "get healthy" project at my house. I am taking a class from Lydia at www.divinehealthfromtheinsideout.com to learn about how I can be healthier by eating the right foods. Much of this is not new for me, but it's nice to have a refresher! I am also learning more about how I can keep my family healthy with essential oils. Lea Harris at http://www.nourishingtreasures.com is an invaluable resource for information not only on EO's but other healthy options. So now I am armed with the information; I am about to put it all into practice with the help of Lisa Fowler at www.passionateandhealthyliving.com Lisa has been kind enough to supply me with a package of "ITWorks" products. I am going to be using these things over the next month (and probably longer). I hope to re-start my metabolism & rev up so I can burn off the jiggle more effectively. I have been trying (with minimal success) to get my hind-end to the gym. I did well for about 10 days, then dropped off! Thank goodness for my weekly yoga sessions at the Women's Community Y! I love those ladies!!!!

Check back with me over the next few weeks. If I get brave enough I might post some pictures to show my progress - so bring your barf bags! :)

Go renew yourselves...you're worth it!

God Bless from my imperfect mess....
