Once Upon A Time.....

If I had to venture a guess, I would say that this pic was from 1997 or so which would make me 21 years old.  At that time, I thought I was fat!  It is crazy how our self image is often so warped.  After two kids and almost 11 years of marriage, I am working hard to get that body back!  I started my journey last year and lost a total of 17 pounds, 5 of which I gained back. 

This year I am more determined than ever to achieve my goal and not only lose weight, but get healthy.  As parents, we set examples for our children.  I want my children to remember an active and healthy mom who worked hard and exercised often. 

Today is the second day I have worked out this year and I am looking forward to posting a "hot mama" picture in a few months.  Get healthy with me.

"We've Only Just Begun"

2011!!!  It always amazes me how quickly the years fly by.  When I was a child, time stood still, but now with children of my own, time is setting a marathon pace.  It is more and more important to sit back and enjoy the little things, the moments that seem so insignificant at the time but will someday fill ones heart with so much emotion and love.  

The year 2010 was a positive year for my family, filled with lots of ups and very few downs.  My family was and continues to be healthy, happy and blessed.  God always provides for our every need! 

I have several goals for myself  this new year..... 
  • Make better food choices for my family
  • Exercise at least 4 times per week
  • Plant a garden with an assortment of fruits and veggies
  • Set aside time to read my Bible
  • Finish up my AA degree
So, here's to a fantastic 2011!  I wish you all a wonderful year filled with growth, change and accomplishments.
