Well its Wednesday. And you know what that means. Time to post about my success (or lack there of) for Operation Skinny Bitch.
Let's just say, its not working out for me. Its not OSB, its me.
If you remember, my resolution for this year was SIMPLICITY. I've learned over the years that by trimming off the nonsense I'm able to focus more on the things that are most important to me. Meaning health. My jewelry. Family. Etc.
But honestly, its more than that. I need simplicity to function properly. Its seems that while I'm pretty good at multitasking, I tend to let myself fall by the wayside. I forget to do the things important for me: exercise, baby my skin, go to sleep early, cook healthy meals from scratch, spend quality time with my husband.
My jewelry business has been doing great, most likely because I'm nurturing it more than ever, but I've noticed that my love for cooking has lessened. I'm preoccupied with orders and sketching designs for the two weddings I'm making jewelry for and I'm simply too busy in the evenings to cook. Or, I'm just not feeling it because my focus is elsewhere.
What does this have to do with OBS?? *sigh* I simply have no energy for healthy meal planning, cooking or exercising. It takes work! But, I'm aware of it. I guess that's the first step. Admitting your problem.
That said, I haven't gained or lost any weight. I have been consistent with my morning exercises around the house, but not much cardio is being done. I have a date one evening this week to jump on my nephew's new large backyard trampoline with him. That should burn a few, right?
How about you? How is your journey with OBS or health in general going?
Is there anyone else interested in this? I may do a trial run for a month, see how it works out. More than anything I would love to be able to support fellow Etsians. I so love Etsy and everything handmade, it would just make sense.

- Ancient Dooney & Bourke cosmetic bag with wild berry chapstick, 2 Cover Girl Strawberry lipgloss, powder, eyeliner, mascara, tweezers, eyebrow brush, 2 berry colored lipglosses, 1 red lipstick, and 2 almost unusuable eyeliner back ups. I get frantic if my eyeliner disappears, which it does often. Having back up is necessary for my sanity.
And just so you know Cheryl, these are the contents of my SMALL purse. I wouldn't have shared if I was toting my big ole gaudy giraffe print hobo!
