Detox me from Sugar, Sugar.

I need a sugar detox. Holy buckets. The past three months I’ve gone overboard with sweet treats… now it’s time to cut the crap and get serious. Who needs cookies, donuts, candies, and chocolates in January anyway?

Seriously though, I’ve started breaking out and if I don’t have dessert, I get a headache. Not cool nor good. I’m obviously not going to fully give up the sweet stuff all together because a girl needs a donut here and there…I’m just going to TRY to cut way back and eat more veggies. Wish Sam luck lol. I might be crabby these next few days.

Well, we did it. We made it through another New Year celebration! Wanna know something? I haven’t stayed up till midnight the past two years. My parents can stay up longer than me haha. Oh well. I had a glass of wine at 9 pm and was sleeping like a baby by 10 pm πŸ™‚

We didn’t do a dang thing to celebrate. I snuggled Har Bear and Ruth and asked Sam what his favorite thing about 2018 was. He said Harry. I cried. So sweet. He also taught me how to floss so now I’m a cool mom.

I started 2019 out with 100 burpees for fun. It took almost 8 minutes. My goal for 2019…cut that down to 5 minutes. I’ll report back in 365 days.

Seriously though, there’s something about a new year that gets me jazzed. I have this weird feeling that 2019 is going to be a dandy of a year.

I’m excited to grow as a mom, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I really want to push myself to try new things. I want to put my phone down and look around me. Take in the beautiful people and sights in the world. I want to travel a little. I want to drink really good wine. I want to learn how to cook really really good food. I want to do more for Sam… like little surprise notes in the morning because I’m a nerd.

Speaking of Sam, he started a new project at home. He started painting all our trim and doors white and I’m so thrilled for this. What a difference a little paint job can make! We have a lot of work to do but our house is coming together.

I have the day off today and so does Sam but I have a feeling he’ll be wiped from his NYs day party so I’m counting on him to nap with Harry while I clean, meal prep, and walk the dog today.

Wishing you nothing but the best in this new year.

    Harry just keeps getting more adorable every day. . . πŸ™‚ Tell Sam the trim looks beautiful. – Wow, – it really does make a difference. I have the day off today, too.

One day at a time. . . πŸ™‚ – Enjoy your day with your guys! πŸ™‚ – Love, Aunt Bette πŸ™‚ – P.S.- It’s uncle Dave that eventually got me into the flossing routine. . . Those guys care about out pearly whites. πŸ™‚
