It's A New Day, A New Start, A New Chapter

Well, it's official! I truly am a middle aged mom. A frumpy, fat, discontent, middle aged mom! Things are about to change!

I keep thinking that I'm 40 but I'm really only 39. I guess that is something to celebrate. I'm still in my 30's! At least for the next three and a half months!

Today is the first day of school around here. Maddie is off at the high school. She's a junior with a licence and is therefore driving herself! CRAZINESS I tell you! Amanda is almost 12 and started 6th grade at a brand new school - the intermediate school! Megan, my baby, started kindergarten! I have no more babies at home and it is just a little sad! Not only am I getting old but so are my parents! My mother is about to turn 60 and my father will turn 65 in the middle of September. Crazy I tell you! I clearly remember when they were my age!

So here is the deal. As this is the start of a new chapter in my life it is going to be a new beginning for me. I will no longer be the fat, frumpy mom. I am going to do something about this! I am going to log what I eat on a daily basis. I will set goals and accomplish them!

Today is the beginning of a brand new day and I am excited about it!
