Here we are again...

I'm back!  But this time with a slightly renewed perspective on life and a new motivation for sharing.  I'm living the mom life now!  David and I have a daughter, Olivia, who will be a year old next month.  Life is VERY different than it used to be, and you know what?  I love it!  Olivia is a happy, smart, and wonderful baby girl, and I can tell you that I have never loved anyone as much as I love that baby girl.  She is our world, and she made our perfectly happy marriage even happier - how was that even possible?

So life is pretty awesome!

I've graduated and have my masters degree in counseling now, and practice out of a busy office.  I'd say that life is busy and happy and joyful!  Next week we go to Las Vegas for Kim's wedding, and I can hardly wait.  I hate to leave Olivia - it will be my first time) but she will be with my parents and I know she will be in the best hands!

So that's life in a nutshell.  I'll do my best to be back more often, but no promises!!  My family is my priority!

Promises, Promises

I've promised myself so many times that I'd do this or that.  That I'd do a better job of one thing or another.  I'm not sure I have managed to keep those promises.  So here I am, well over a year later and hardly a pound lighter.  Not sure I'm a better person than I was a year ago, either.  But I'm trying.

So here I find myself sitting.  After a very "blah" day.  Trying to figure out what would be a nice pickup for my day.  I think of all the things I should be doing but don't want to do.  

So this week I'm going to work on digging deep and willing myself to make healthy changes.  What will they be?  I'll share them as I make them.  And as I go along, I might even share why I'm making them.  My life is good, my husband is wonderful...and we have many adventures ahead.  I want to be ready for anything and everything! :-)

So here's to figuring out the road ahead!

Here I Am!

Wow, talk about inconsistent!  It's hard for me to keep track of time with work and school and everything in between!  I rejoined Weight Watchers again this past Saturday, so I'm having a great week and feeling wonderful!  School is going well.  I'll finish my masters degree in Spring of 2015, so I'm getting there!  Work keeps me busy, and so does trying to have a little bit of a life.  But somehow it all works!

I'm going to try and post once a week.  It's really therapeutic for me, so I'll try and post some weight loss updates and pictures here to share!  Thanks for checking in on me!

March Check In

Being so sick last month really knocked me off course.  I've been struggling to get back on track, and I'm doing better.  I've started working out again, and tonight Shelby and I are going to try a weights class at the gym.  I promise I will be in so much pain tomorrow, but I know it will be worth it!  I'm ready to kick things into high gear again!  I'm trying to get my eating back on track.  Slowly but surely!  I've done more menu planning again, and that really helps.  I'll be glad once I can settle into my routine again.

Other than that, it's been fairly uneventful.  School is tough, but it's really good.  I've developed a person research project and it is garnering a lot of interest from the faculty at school.  It's pretty cool...lots of professors want to lend a hand!  So maybe once I get it going I'll share more about it here.  Right now it's still in the development phase so there isn't much to tell.

Be well and I'll check in again soon!

On Track

So I'm still on track! I've lost 94 pounds now, and going strong. I've been really sick the last couple weeks so I haven't been able to work out but I'm hoping to change that today!

January Goal

So I have lost 7.4 pounds in January so far! My goal is 7 pounds every month in 2013, so I am definitely on track! And my grand total? 83.4 pounds gone! It's a new personal best!

I also worked out the last 4 days in a row! I'm giving myself today off to recover, and I also have school tonight.

So I'm definitely feeling good!!!

Making It Happen

5 pounds off since the first, for a total of 80.6! This is the most successful I've ever been, and I think it's going to stick! I'm making some permanent changes and I'm feeling so much happier!

School is off to a good start, and work is really good. I think things are finally falling into place!

Have a great Thursday!
