running to the beat of a healthier drum

It's been a very bland 2012 for me, but I'm slowly moving into enjoying the fresh scent of spring and still working on settling into my home.  Can you believe I've been a homeowner for 1 month and 15 days!  It's still kind of surreal to me, especially since my house looks like a tornado has hit it and I'm not sure when it will settle down so it can be presentable to have guests.

I officially started hanging art and shelving on the wall last night and I'm happy with all, but one coat hook.  I hung it a inch to high so it's looks off from the other two I have.  I'm afraid to redu it since I already goofed with the screw so now their will be two holes if I do this again.  I may just need to find another item to put their instead.  Currently, I have my running jacket / armband on one.  My purse on the other and my dog walking purse and dog walking accessories on the woof frame.  it's cute, just looks off with the middle one being to high for it's size.

My office is looking good.  Here is what I have so far:

Things that I"m planning on changing:
* kiddy pictures
* table
* shelving
* wall color (you can see my color swatch sample behind my canisters)

I would like my office to look more like this:

If I move it to the wall I want the big shelving unit I can do this exact layout.  Though I have a tall wall mirror, which I guess I can move to the area I have my desk now and just do a small shelving unit their to host all my workout gear and video as I try to keep that pretty minimal.


For the last few weeks I've been getting back to the beat of a healthier drum by choosing better eating habits and being more active.  I have a corgi now, who I've been walking 3-5 days a week anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on my schedule.   I'm feeling food and less depressed since the sun is coming out and the weather has been so warm.  Yeah Spring!! It's so close I can smell the flowers blooming.

I've also found a running buddy, which has been so helpful in challenging me to get out their to run again.  I had seriously lost the desire to workout and it just made me feel really ugly and fat and I'm so glad to be getting back to my happy zone where I'm feeling good to be social again.  I still have a few pounds to drop to get back to where I was last August.
