I got my fitbit on Monday and it is so addicting. I had 10,000 steps by 3 pm yesterday. My diet change isn't going as well.  I have been somewhat better but with baseball season upon us, I have a hard time with meal planning.

More good news is my Younique liquid foundation came in. I love this stuff. It is amazing. I also ordered a contouring pallet that comes with a free brush. I cannot wait until I can play with my makeup.  I will try to post some photos tomorrow.

Getting back to me!

It really hit home the other night exactly how much I have lost myself. I was at Walmart with Jason and the kids. They went off to get me a present for Mother's day. They came back and wanted me to pick which one I preferred. The choices: a set of pots and pans, a vacuum, and a carpet shampooer. Granted, Jason knows that I am really practical. That being said for Mother's day I like a nice splurge that says "You work really hard and deserve some pampering." A vacuum doesn't really scream that. So I put my foot down. I explained that although I loved that they wanted to get me something I could use everyday, sometimes multiple times a day; I wanted something a bit more fun. I wanted a makeover!

So today I went and got my hair cut, my make up done (and bought a ton of product), and bought some new clothing. I also ordered myself a fitbit (and one for my mother-in-law since I know she will love it). I decided to start blogging again to keep myself accountable. Part of this makeover is on me. I have been wanting to get in shape again and I am going to use my blog to keep me accountable. So now comes the hard part: sticking to my goals.

1, Lose weight
2. Do my hair and makeup
3. Take time for me

I know I can do this and more importantly, I know I need this!
