Finding your inner circus act

I like to make jokes about my balance since an inner ear infection on my 20th birthday left me a little off kilter. While my personal equilibrium will never be the same, I try to make attempts at finding balance in the rest of my life. I don't always succeed.

This year my anti resolutions were part of my small first steps to help me find more balance in my life (and perhaps a smaller size me as well). I am happy to update and say that they are going well. If the scale is telling the truth, then I've lost somewhere around five pounds in the month of January. A perfectly acceptable start to the new year.

Since that is going so well, for February I'm going to try to add to my list of things to keep on track. I'm going to try to finish one knitted project a month, and exercise at least three times a week. I'm still not sure what that means. For the most part I should be able to go for walks in the skyway downtown (even if it is to go to Target to get diapers). However, the work schedule may get in the way of that some. If that doesn't work, I'm debating the purchase of some kind of either video or equipment. I'm hoping it doesn't come to that, since it will be warm enough for morning/even walks before you know it. For the knitted stuff, so far so good. There are plenty of babies on the way, and I intend to keep as many of them as I can in warm sweaters.

No matter what, I'm committed to making sure that as M gets older I set a good example. You can be a good employee, a mom and good spouse all at once. Find your inner tightrope walker...
