Christmas 2012

It’s all coming back, it’s all coming back to me now….

It’s been so long I seriously forgot the website to login!  I too miss our little blog.  It was seriously the only way I was going to leave some sort of journal for my kids and grandkids.  And I know they are going to be super excited to read and see what I ate for over a year! 😉

But to me it’s not just about the accountability of food, it’s about sharing our experiences of day to day life with weight, food, exercise, family, husbands, etc.  And knowing that everyone struggles in one way or another but we can be a strength for each other!

My last real post was post our Hawaii trip.  WOW, it’s been a long time!  The holidays came and went with the chaos and craziness that they tend to bring.  The new year was a little depressing.  My husband went back overseas the Friday after Christmas so it was back to our routine!  I am lucky to have one of my very best friends that lives not too far away from me and spent the first week of January with her and her 4 kids.  That really helped me to be able to get into my coping/survival mode that I tend to go in when Keller leaves.

The boys are busy.  Cruz is almost 11 months!!  And is crawling all over the place.  He’s super smiley and literally brings a smile to my face every time I look at him.  Cole is going to be 6 in May and loves Kindergarten.  He had a girlfriend, but she “broke-up” with him because her best friend really likes Cole??!?!?  Already in Kindergarten it starts????  Geez!  I’ve been keeping myself busy with my workouts, as usual!  I’ve been doing a lot of yoga at home, ut just last week tried out a hot yoga studio that I really like.  Keller also built a CrossFit gym in our garage so I’ve also been doing a couple CF workouts a week at home.

I do have an exciting announcement!!  Heavens NO I’m not pregnant!!  I was able to reach my weight-loss goal by the end of 2012!!!!!!!  My goal was to be 150 pounds and December 31st I was 149!!  Yahoo…so exciting!!!  The crappy part is that none of my clothes fit, so that kind of sucks, but it’s the best thing that sucks ever!  Since then I’ve been able to lose another 5.8 pounds so I’m down to 144.2.  So total since March 25, 2007 when Cruz was born, I’ve lost 57.8 pounds.  I’ve changed my goal to 140 in hopes that I can continue to lose as I build lean muscle.  Here are some before and afters (the second “after”pic was taken for my husband to show him my new workout outfit, hence the pose!)

I’m super excited to get back into blogging and may even have a recipe for you tonight, unless it tastes like crap!
