I decided to change my template a bit since I’ve had my old one for almost 2 years now. This time, I was determined to make my own banner and that I did. With my very limited Photoshop and HTML skills, this is what I have come up with. What do you think?! I'm not too keen on the color scheme, but it'll suffice for now. Of course, I’d like it to look a bit more polished, but hey, for someone with hardly any tech skills or free time (or hands! As I usually type with one hand nowadays), I think it’s not too shabby. I will, however, make a more refined banner one day!
I also tried to enable Blogger's commenting system, but after almost 2 hours of trying with nothing to show for it, I had to revert back to good 'ole Haloscan. I followed what Blogger told me to do to enable their commenting system, but no dice! Can anyone help me? *sigh*
UPDATE: Apparently, my new template isn't very compatible with non-Internet Explorer browsers (e.g., Mozilla-Firefox, etc.). In fact, it looks all weird in Firefox so I'm trying to fix it. Man, if I only had the tech skills! Please bear with me in the meantime.
I’m also making some changes to my lifestyle as I feel like a fat tub o’ lard. It’s been almost 4 months since I gave birth and I can’t use the “I-just-had-a-baby” excuse anymore to explain the flabby belly. Which is not to say that I ever had a six-pack or anything like that. It’s more like this: pre-baby, I can suck in my gut no problem and make it appear like I have a flat stomach. Post-baby: no can do! I am out of shape, but don’t really have the time nor energy to get back to the gym. So I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to walk at least an hour about 4x/week and watch what I eat. I’m also going to do some free weights whenever I can squeeze them in and do an exercise DVD once a week. (Okay, it doesn’t help that I’m currently chomping on a chocolate chip cookie as I type this at 10:32 pm!) Really, it takes some determination to change your eating habits. I have horrendous eating habits and it’s because I love food so much. But since I can’t go to the gym, walking and a little less caloric intake will have to do. Wish me luck!
