Such a good day!

Well as the title leads you to believe, it really was a fabulous day!  I got a ton accomplished at work (always good), the kids made it out of a trip to the dentist office with zero cavities, and I killed it at the gym! I decided to keep my resistance the same because I…

It’s Paying Off!

I have lost NINE pounds since I started this journey so I am now down to 237!  Just for the record, the hubster has lost three pounds – go him (he isn’t really trying to lose weight though lol)!  Of course I would love it if I continued to lose the weight so fast but…

I Can Totally Look Like That!


I have an awesome husband.  No, really.  The kind of the husband that women dream about.  He cooks, he cleans, does laundry, and treats me like a queen.  We’ve been together since high school and I just can’t imagine my life without him.  He doesn’t stare at hot girls when they pass by or even talk about…
