Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jig

Heather says:

Coming home from a long trip is hard. While I’m thankful I had to have the house company ready, I am still facing a monster pile of laundry, unpacking and a nearly empty refrigerator.

I am a creature of habit, I have routines I like to follow and starting today I’m re-launching #backontrack. If you are on Twitter, feel free to follow that hashtag and use it to tag your own endeavors to either establish a healthy routine whether it’s:

  • keeping track of a fitness goal
    exercising a certain amount per week, logging your efforts
  • improving your diet
    drinking more water, preparing food at home
  • increasing productivity
    getting to bed on time, breaking a bad habit

It’s a place to work on goals without annoying the crap out of our immediate family or close friends. Creating a sense of accountability within a positive community is helpful when making change. Knowing I ought to report in on my efforts can inspire me to load the kids into the car instead of planting myself on the couch. Looking at my calendar, January is packed with obligations and goals; I’m sure yours is, too. Let’s pull for each other.

Starting today, I resume normal posting here at Home-Ec 101. I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.

    So glad you're back. I've got to get back on the Wii and do my yoga before it starts asking where I went again. I need to GAIN weight, so I might start walking with the hubby again once it warms up.

    yay! welcome back! I'm trying to get backontrack myself with exercising, yesterday i made it to the gym for the first time in forever, hopfully i can keep it up (ready for silly jan new years resolutions)

      I don't really make New Years resolutions, but I feel gross after eating poorly for the last couple weeks and not going to the gym as I ought to. (Throw in that not going to the gym is just a waste of money and double ouch). I also am out of sync with time. I normally am up at 5, but travelling and late nights have thrown that to side, too. My plan is to crash early tonight and get a fresh start in the morning.
      Also, what is it about any city water that isn't what you're used to being "gross?" There was nothing wrong with the place we were visiting, but I could NOT force myself to drink their water. </picky>

        Whenever I leave home, I take some of our water from home along with me in jugs so I will continue to drink the water I should — I cannot stand city water. We're fortunate to have fabulous well water – so good I could sell it.
