Regarding Puberty and Other Things!

So I think my daughter's hit puberty. She argues with me about that which I consider to be a sign.  She'll be 11 at the end of March and she's argumentative as all hell lately.  Don't like this, don't want to do that, (insert wahs and cries here).  It might not be noticeable physically but I think all signs point towards it rearing its ugly head and I'm so not ready for it.  I wonder really who goes through puberty, them or us?

I didn't make any big New Year's Resolutions this year but am just trying to keep things in perspective and be in control of what I do and who I am.  Does that sound weird?  I think it probably does but I just want to be the best that I can be in whatever I do whether its planning things better, being more patient, snacking less, cleaning more, etc, etc.  With that in mind, I'm pretty happy with how productive I've been since the weekend.  I got a few things done that needed doing and I'm in the middle of a ginormous filing project and moving around 15,000 or so pieces of paper. (I'll only just briefly mention that I hope to find my kids birth certificates that aren't in their usual location for some bizarre reason and I'm not going to get all in a tizzy about it either, its just not worth it as they will show up in the most unlikely of places).

Part of this is doing a few things for myself.  I ordered a Becky Higgins Project Life kit and received it last week!!  I'm tres excited and have already started organizing it.  I don't necessarily know if I plan to document every single day but I will do it my way and it will be great!

So last Wednesday, I stepped on the scale which is something I haven't done in a long time.  I was down .5 lbs to 119.5!  Very happy even though I haven't been *trying* to lose weight on purpose, I've just been trying to watch what I eat - no snacking in the evenings is a big one for me.  Last night I did my first EA Active Workout in just as long and today, my balance board had some shall we say issues.  It warned me of low batteries but didn't die on me.  However, it did indicate that I'd lost 4.9 lbs since last time!, I don't think so.  I tried again and this time I lost another 2.2 lbs.  Hmmmm...I say we'll scrap this one and start from scratch with new batteries maybe tomorrow.

And tonight since both kids have activities which don't involve me, my husband on his way to taking the boy to JackRabbits hockey, will drop me off at the Y where I will continue on my C25k path.  I find running on the treadmill so much easier anyways so we'll see how it goes!
