A Smorgasbord, If You Will

With so many thoughts scurrying around my mind already this week, I feel as if I can't form a complete post. So, you'll be getting bits of would-be posts today. Sound good? Good.

Can we start with a weight date?

All in all, up to day 5, I'm doing good this new year. As you all know, I began my weight-loss journey Dec. 10, 2011 with a challenge to lose 60 pounds by the following Dec 10. Christmas certianly didn't help, but the stomach virus I had did. I wish I was kidding.

As it stands, I've done well using My Fitness Pal to log calories. {if you're on there come find me! my user name is magnoliamom365}. With the start of the new year I decided to begin my workout plan all over again. So here I am on day 5, it's a break day. Who knew that jumping jacks were hard. Um, yeah, a body that still has the sickies and hasn't had any good cardio in forevah, that's who! Thank you break day, my stomach forgot it had muscles.

Next up on our plate of smorgasbord details {I just love that word}....it's January. You're thinking, duh, Erin! What I'm getting at here is that it's Januray and in 77 days my baby becomes a 1-year-old.

::sigh::

On top of the typical mommy emotions that come along with your baby growing up, I'm a nitpicky planner and an extremely indecisive person. This is already proving to be a challenge for birthday #1. But all that? Yeah, that's a post {and possibly a poll} for another day.

Next on my list of random thoughts...I've been thinking of switching to Wordpress. And I'm looking for your thoughts, advice, tips, favorite designers. How did you make the switch? Was it easy? And so on and so on.

I've used WordPress before and liked it, but I've just become so used to Blogger I'm getting nervous to make the switch. Will you PLEASE comment below if you have any experience in switching from one to the other or if you have any thoughts on this topic at all! Peas and thank you.

There it is, my thoughts on a bloggy platter. Happy Thursday, friends, hope the new year is treating you well.

  1. Well first of all...
    You are doing way better than me! I have added what I eat the app. But I have had NO motivation to work out. Ugh. I promise I will get with it!
    No second. With his birthday something you have to remember is that (as perfect as you want it to be) he won't remember it other than in photos. It becomes more fun every year. This is huge year and I know I went a little overboard on Sydney's first. Lol. But its ok if every little detail isn't perfect. :-).
    Let me know how you like wordpress! I eventually want to open one up just to play with designing on there. But ill do that when I have TKC Designs going a little better. Lol.

  3. Doing better than I am! I haven't even thought about E's first birthday. And it is in 76 days (thanks for that by the way!!! 76 sounds like so much less than three months!!!) I'll be spending the next week on Pinterest! I haven't exercised yet -- still waiting for Jillian to show up in the mail! :)

  4. I am thinking of switching off of Blogger as well, but I am not tech savy at all so I am afraid it will mess me all up! If you get any good tips, shoot them my way:)
