#R2BC - Reasons to be cheerful... 1, 2, 3
Welcome to this week's #R2BC! It's been a quiet week, just getting back in to the swing of things really. But still lots to smile about!
1. It's 2012! The year I turn 30, the year I celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary, the year my brother-in-law marries one of my best friends, and of course the year of the London Olympics! Lots of things to look forward to this year. The husband and I have been making plans for the year ahead, and he tells me he is whisking me off for the weekend to celebrate my birthday which I am VERY excited about. I was pregnant on my 18th birthday, and had given birth only a couple of weeks prior to my 21st birthday so my 30th birthday is going to be just for me, I can't wait!
2. The kids are settled in back at school for the new term. I love having them home but they are so glad to be back with their friends and in their routine, especially Logan who really does need it to keep him on an even keel. Both he and Joshua are very excited about their school trips this year, and Joshua is getting quite excited about the final stretch of his time at Primary school before he goes off to 'big school' in the Autumn.
3. New year, new me. After losing a lot of weight previously I became a bit complacent and didn't keep up my efforts. it's not just about weight loss, it is about fitness and health and I will getting back on the Slimming World wagon properly, and taking up regular exercise, even if it is just walking for an extra half an hour every day. It'll be nice to be doing something just for me, too. I'm looking forward to 'starting over' on Monday and will be thrilling you all with regular updates, bet you can't wait! ;)
