A Few of My Favorite Things

When the scale says I've gained another 5 pounds
When the paint just won't cooperate
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

So here goes...
  • I love my stainless steel carafe that keeps my coffee warm all day long.
  • I love my little, green kitchen radio that pipes in NPR from morning until night.
  • I love the tufts of fur that grow in between my kitties toes.
  • I love mass market paperbacks that fit easily in your hand or your purse.
  • I love playing with Ross's curly hair.
  • I love the smell of Pink Soap when I'm washing my paint brushes.
  • I love riding in airplanes, especially when I get the window seat.
  • I love the way a room can be transformed by merely vacuuming the carpet.
  • I love hand drying dishes with a warm towel, fresh out of the dryer.
  • I love coming home to our little, yellow house.

That's a nice list. Do you have a Wii machine???? We got one after we moved and then got the Wii Fit and it makes exersizing fun. You could probaby use something like that since it is too cold, icy and snowy to go for a walk outside everyday. Some days I just have to tell myself to get off the computer and the couch and do it, but we all enjoy doing a work out to the Wii fit, and Jon loves his Rock Band for the Wii. It is hard to get yourself in the habbit of exersizing everyday. I somedays wish I had someone to go for a walk with around the neighborhood. It is easier to stick to a workout plan if it involves someone else. Do you have a friend nearby? Jon's mom and I used to go to an arobics class at the school gym twice a week and it helped me lose weight. It was funner to go with someone and then I never wanted to cancel on her so it made me go every time.
