December Reflections – 2016

December 7 – Five things about me:

I’ve done these a few times so most people know the usual things (married 32+ years, three children, work for myself, blah, blah, blah), so here are 5 “new” things.

1)  I am determined to lose more weight in 2017.  I am down 24.6 pounds from my all-time high.  I still have a way to go.  Hungry Girl is my best friend right now.  I’ve told my husband that he has to cook his own meals or eat what I eat.  It is working.

2)  I hate exercising (which makes #1 a little harder) but I have been doing planks almost nightly and I can do an elbow plank for 2 minutes and a full arm plank for 3-1/2 minutes.  My stomach is getting flatter but my arms are killing me 🙂  At least I don’t have to leave the house to go to a gym and get all sweaty.

3)  I am a craft addict.  Mostly scrapbooking and paper crafting, mini-albums, cards, things like that; but, I also do some crocheting and I have done embroidery in the past as well.  I have WAY too much stuff, but I get such joy out of making things for people and I can’t look at hardly anything without trying to figure out how I can use it craft-wise.

These cardboard inserts scream mini-albums to me.

4)  I am an introvert (INFJ in the Myers-Briggs world), which I just realized this year.  It explains so much, like why I have more on-line friends than real ones (not really, but my close real friends are cherished and few).  I am married to a definite extrovert (he talks to EVERYBODY, whether they want him to or not).  It is just one of the things that makes our relationship so interesting 🙂

5)  I never lie.  Sometimes I may not tell the whole story, but if you ask me a direct question, I’ll have to tell you the truth.

There’s my five things.  Want to tell me five about you?  Love to find out!

    Thanks for playing along, Ally! Do you use color in decorating your house or is it grays and browns as well? Reading does seem to wax and wane in a lot of people. I usually read right before bed so it takes me forever to finish a book. The truth can hurt but it is generally the best way.

    Good for you, Denise, none of it is easy. Thanks for stopping by.

    Great thoughts and memories. Your delightful personality shines through in your blog.

    This is a fun idea/list.

    1) I am continually dreaming up ways to re-decorate our house, some of which we actually do!

    2) I like the gray/brown shades of winter so I look forward to seeing less color outside.

    3) I'm an INFP, or sometimes an INTP.

    4) I used to read novels constantly, but these last few years I've lost my reading mojo.

    5) I'm a lot like you, I'm known for being truthful, sometimes overly so.

    I hope you success in your weight loss. Good for you losing 24.6 lbs. I have gone down a size myself. Size 14 to size 12. Now I need to tone it. That is the hard part. And I can not lie either.
