There’s Not Much To Complain About When You’re Happy

This blog has typically been my place to vent, to whine and complain about life.  I come and go based on how happy I am in my life, which is why I haven’t written much here lately.  These days I’ve been a happy, happy girl!
I wish I could say I was happy because I won the lottery, quit my job and now live in a mansion with my own housekeepers, cook and personal trainer, but sadly that hasn’t happened.  Quite the opposite actually.  I’m happy because I’ve decided to take control of my life – training for a half marathon and learning how to cook.
The half-marathon training has been going incredibly well.  I’m getting faster and my long runs are getting easier.  I’ve also lost 3lbs (maybe more because I haven’t weighed myself in a week).  I’m only 3 weeks into my 19 week training plan, but so far it’s been ging well.  I’ve even found a group of runners at work to run with on my lunch hour.  I love the new companionship and I’m looking forward to having that support when ever hubby travels (ie: next week when he’s in Ireland).
This year I’m also learning how to cook (by trial and error).  I don’t really have a lot of time to cook, so my “cooking” really means cutting stuff up, and throwing it in a slow cooker with some spices and water to create an amazingly tastey meal that’s also nutritious.  NUTRITIOUS!  I’m trying to eat less processed foods this year.  The amount of sh*t in processed food stuff is disgusting!  And the things they do to the animals we eat is atrocious!  It’s nasty to think we’re eating all of those hormones and antibiotics – yuck!  I’m reading Skinny Bitch and it’s scared me off of coffee, junk food, and soda.  It’s also doing a good job of making me consider becoming vegan – my pal Cheaty is happy about that.  Truthfully the book should be renamed Healthy Bitch because I feel you should be eating well to be healthy not skinny.  Healthy Bitch propably wouldn’t sell as many copies as a book titled Skinny Bitch.
Now because I’m happy, running, and eating healthy doesn’t mean I haven’t been blogging – quite the opposite actually.  I’ve been writing a TON… just not here.  I’ve been fitness blogging over at The Fitness Cheerleader (I renamed Lazy Mama Fitness because the site name really sucked a$$).  I’m having a blast writing about something I’m passionate about – health and fitness.  It’s amazing how naturally that comes to me and how quickly I can whip up a post compared to here where I struggle to put my thoughts into typed written words.  I’ve written over there almost every day and if you’re interested in checking out the recipes I’ve tried I urge you to come by and visit, yanno say “Hi”.
I’ve rather missed y’all and I really should stop by and comment on your blogs, though I want to tell you that I have been reading all of your posts in an email that I get from FeedBlitz that combines all of your RSS feeds into a daily newsletter of posts, I just haven’t stopped by and left comments.
Have a great day guys!

All the best,
Janice
