Well, It has been a while since I've posted in this blog. Just got to the point where I didn't know what I wanted to post about.
My kids are all growing and thriving. My oldest is starting middle school!! How did that happen?! and my baby is starting pre-k. This makes me feel old!! But once school starts back up, I will have 8 hours of quiet to myself. I have absolutely no idea what I will do with all that free time! I keep thinking I need to contribute more towards our household budget. But I have no idea what. I want to be able to be there for my kids if needed. I also do not want to have to pay for daycare cost for after school.
My biggest accomplishment this year is losing 36 pounds so far!! I'm thrilled. I've come a long way since I started in July of 2013. I had only lost 24 pounds from July to November and I hit a plateau. I was getting discouraged and frustrated. I was happy that I did not gain any weight over the holidays.
Then in May, A friend of mine decided to lose some weight so I decided I would push myself too. I've been watching my calories and what I eat. Drink TONS of water. I hired a AWESOME personal trainer that comes to my house 2 x a week and I go to her house 2 x a week. Since May, I've lost another 12 pounds. I'm just thrilled that I've overcome my plateau.
We decided since we had a blast on our last cruise, we decided to go on another family vacation. We will be going on a cruise for 7 days! We are all excited about this! I love the fact that my husband can just turn off his phone and email and not have to worry about being contacted by his boss 24/7.
