Thanks Sarah!

My awesome sister Sarah has inspired me and now you all get to reap the benefit too! Sarah, I'm sure she doesn't mind me sharing, has decided to blog every day. Her blogs are about her finding the happiness in life. Since she is a mom of 2 and a wife it's easy for her to get down and her daily blogs help uplift her.
I find that it's easy to get down on yourself. I work really hard for my small family and never get any recognition for it and it makes me sad. I also have been having a lot of problems at work, which you all heard about. But for me the best way to feel good about myself is to eat right and work out. Right before I went on vacation earlier this month I was on a strict diet and was working out daily. I lost 10 lbs and was feeling so good. But since I went on vacation I really wanted to eat at restaurants that we don't have in the bay area so I had to convince myself to let go of my diet for a weekend...BIGGEST. MISTAKE. EVER. It's so much easier to let go of your diet than it is to start it up again.
So, for the past week I've been trying to get back into my routine of working out daily, drinking water (which, yes, I do have to force myself to do), and eat right but I just haven't been able to do it. I then realized that if I "had" to report to "someone" than it would be a lot easier to do. So what does that mean to you, the reader?
Every day I am going to be posting what I ate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I will also report what I did to work out and how I feel. I think that it will help me realize how much eating right and working out does for me. You don't have to read it or comment on it, it' s really for me. But I do hope the chain goes on of YOU finding a way to uplift yourself daily!
See you tomorrow.

Good idea! I will try to support you as much as I can with comments (maybe even adding my foods and workout times with you so we are motivating each other!). It is a good release to blog every day. I'm glad you like the idea. Have fun!
