A Snapshot of My Life - Routine, Week One

Yesterday I subscribed to a blog called, A Snapshot of My Life which I thought would help me in one of my goals this year - to become more healthy.  On the third week of each month we are supposed to take daily pictures and journal about a prompt that the blog creator, Anna, gives us.  At the end of the week she gives us some templates to scrapbook the week with.  I'm excited to get started!  Since I started in February I decided to do this week for my January layout.  My "Snapshot" isn't so much about a year but about a goal so today I am beginning my goal and here is this weeks prompt that we are supposed to photograph and journal about:



  1. A prescribed, detailed course of action to be followed regularly; a standard procedure.
  2. A set of customary and often mechanically performed procedures or activities.

My routine for Monday is to weigh myself and of course eat right and exercise.  Today I took a picture of me weighing.  I'm optimistic because when my sister, Jerri Ann, and I got together several years ago and focused on weight loss we were both able to lose about 22 lbs in six weeks of hard work.  The funny thing about this is that we can do it diligently for each other but have a hard time doing it for ourselves!  What's with that?  I think I need to become a little more selfish and assert my right to take care of myself!  Wow, did that come out of me?  

Since this blog is mostly me talking about Bob and I and our family, I thought this would be a good forum to journal my progress.  Today is the first day of the rest of my HEALTHY life...
