A warm wind blowing

“… it’s been such a long time, and I really do miss your smile.”

Bonus points if you know what line that song is from. (also, a hint in the title of this post).

So I’ve been implementing changes over the last week. Getting my life in order. First order of business was getting my ass back on the healthy eating train. I really blew it over the holidays. I fully admit to drowning my sorrows in lots of high fat and carbs. I figured I earned it. No holiday cookie was safe in my eyesight.

I had stopped my vitamin regimen as well. And exercise was non-existent.

Let’s see, poor diet, no exercise, depression. Check. Even my hair was falling out again, no doubt from the withdrawal of copious amounts of fertility drugs that have invaded my system the last few years.

Yep, I am in pretty bad shape.

Beyond the mental, I need to also work on the physical. So I am back to eating sensibly and back to my favorite hangout (weight w.atchers). Taking my vitamins again. My hair FINALLY is growing in and staying in. I also got my Wii Fit hooked up and easing myself back into exercise. Contemplating going to a gym, but not getting too far ahead of myself…. I mean, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

And I have plenty of time on my hands.

My body is no longer a trash heap.  I’ve made countless commitments to getting healthy, but honestly, I think now is the perfect time to really get down to business.

If you want to follow my progress, I’ll be posting over here at a new blog focusing just on my weight loss and exercise journey.  

No worries…  I’ll still be here, at BagMomma, providing deep contemplative thought along with bad humor.  I just need to have a place to fully immerse my new project. 

It’s nice to feel….  engaged again.

  1. Oh, I've always liked that song. And good for you for picking yourself up and dusting yourself off – you just needed a minute to get your head together. You go girl!!

  2. Great news! I am a firm believer in taking care of yourself. It's very hard to feel good mentally if you don't feel good physically. Let me know if you need any pointers. I am a believer!–MM

  3. Good for you – I don't know why the pull of treating ourselves like crap is so strong, when all it does is make us feel bad in the long run. (I can relate.) Good luck on the new path to healthy and good living!

  4. "I'm not talking about movin' in…and I don't want to change your life…"one of my favorite songs from childhood. I had no idea what this guy was singing about, but felt the emotion. It was the first time I felt pangs of romance and that men and women felt these things toward each other. I'D REALLY LOVE TO SEE YOU TONIGHTEngland Dan & John Ford Coley

  5. Good luck with the diet and exercise! Too funny – I started a new blog to track my progress in that area as well – although, for now, I'm keeping that one private. Best of luck.

  6. Yeah, I know that song! But Bee Cee beat me to it. Anyway, glad you are back on track with exercise and feeding – I am struggling to do the same. Of course the fact that I am still blindly poking chemicals into my body is not helping! Thanks for the inspriation, hopefully I will get on board with you.

  7. "I'd really love to see you tonight" by Dan Seals (and I have a version by Barry Manilow!) Now that song is stuck in my head!Good luck with the new regime, it always makes me feel better to have a plan and be doing something positive.
