Ok, so today is the first day of the rest of my life. I think I shall be full of silly cliches today as I try to get things back on track.

Last night I pigged out on enchiladas, margaritas, and chocolate candy, so today it's back to getting healthy. No caffeine, no nutrasweet, 0-1 alcoholic beverages a day, cut way down on refined carbs. Lots of water and some sort of exercise every day (starting with just walking & yoga).

I realize that there was nothing I could have done to prevent my miscarriage, but because of my health problems I really need to try and live a healthy lifestyle to maximize my health & fertility for the future. I need to feel in control of the tiny bit that I can be in control of.

As for my mental health, I just printed out the calendar for the local Buddhist temple I have been meaning to visit and I also need to make an appointment with the therapist my shrink referred me to. Then, to start doing something about my job situation.

For the most part, I try to keep this blog about crafts and stuff. But for some reason I feel the need to put my "plan" in writing so I guess here is as good a place as any. As for crafts, I am continuing on the Ahoy! socks. I just turned the heel on the first one and I'm picking up the gusset stitches. I forgot how quickly socks work up in dk weight yarn. I sewed myself a cute little tank top from some bright pink Hello Kitty fabric and I'm not sure what I want to work on next.

I'm very sorry to hear you had a miscarrage.

I quit drinking caffine to and it really cuts down on headaches. Have a great day!!
