Erin asked for me to share. The truth is I don’t feel like I have much to share, and at the same time so much.

It is really my mind set that is changing. During TTC, EVERY decision was preempted with the question “What if I’m pregnant?”

As a result, we never would have booked a trip 10 months and a year away. I would of considered it a gamble. We actually passed on a trip to Italy, offered to us the first month we were trying and I still regret not going. It has been 31/2 years, and I still have that regret.

So since this is the year is turning into the year of refocusing, I thought I’d give some updates on my new year’s resolutions too:

1. The Business. The name, policies, and the logistics are complete. Currently, I am completing my samples. And it is taking me a while longer than I expected, because I am a bit of a perfectionist.
2. Gym: I’ve failed miserably. Between crazy work hours and being sick for most of the month of February – I haven’t made it as much as I wanted to. But, hoping that I will be able to really get into this soon.
3. Zone Diet: I have started to reintroduce it, but I have nothing to show for it. I think this is because I need to really get to the gym!
4. Finances. We’ve refinanced and consolidated. Made arrangements for better savings. It is coming together.

And for a little bit more random, I have an update on my Acne post. Well, the product I started back in November was OK, but it left me with some acne. It obviously wasn’t the perfect solution.

Ellen, about a month back ago did a meme that boasted about Pr*activ. I had always shied away because I have dry skin. But, then I started hearing an add for their Green Tea Moisturizer, so I thought what do I have to loose?

I have been using the stuff for about a week today, and all of the acne I had is vanishing, as well as, my blackheads. I wish that I had done a before shot, because it is really amazing.

Ultimately, things are going well :).

Hmmm...can you get Pr*activ at any store or is it special order?

That's so interesting that pr*activ is working so well--I've debated trying it about a million times. (Particularly for the blackhead situation I've had since I was about 12.) I might just have to give it a shot!

Glad to hear that you are well.

First off, I use pr*active and I LOVE it! Second, I love your list and I now am motivated to make one of my own, regain focus in life. Thank you!

You can get Pr*activ at some mall kiosks too. I thought it made my face very shiny for awhile (and now again, with all these PIO shots, perhaps), but otherwise I love it.

Also, you can rearrange the delivery schedule to save money -- it takes me about 3 months to get through the 2-month supply.

My only beef with Pr*activ, which I've sent to customer service, is the lack of recyclable packaging.

Wow I've always shied away from Proactiv because of my dry skin. I'll definitely try it. Thanks! And good on the new strides in your life.
