Ran another 5K this morning

It's getting a little easier.  I even though I haven't seen much of a change on the scale (which I am sure is due to the fact I haven't really been watching what I eat much and building more muscle) I do know I have lost inches.  My size 31 Miss Me's are now loose on me and my wedding rings and even tops are getting looser.  I haven't gotten on the scale as I am waiting until next Monday, but I know once I really crack down on my food it will melt off.  It beats any diets and and spending any extra money doing something I can do own my own.  Heck, who would have thought I would be running 3-4 miles in less then 20 days?  My endurance is really building and I have started incorporating the weights in, so I know it will really start coming off soon... I hope.

Mind you, this is on top of volunteering, babysitting, cooking, cleaning, playing house, painting and play-doh, park play-dates, therapy and more therapy, dance classes, gymnastics and now horse riding lessons.We're not even talking about me thinking about more college courses.  My schedule is insanely hectic, but I have finally decided that this year is about "ME".  Only not in a superficial, high maintance type of way.. but simply getting off my butt and changing my life for my future and for the future of my kids and I am actually enjoying what I have accomplished so far.

Good thing is Dave is on board with me and really working on losing some weight and is training for 1/2 marathons.

It's exciting to know he is sticking by me and motivating me.  How'd I get so lucky to find such an awesome person to be my husband and friend?

Next year is my 5 year anniversary and we're going on a cruise somewhere tropical (hopefully) and I am going to we're a really cute swimsuit and sun dresses.

Thanks to my Haute Mommas, my family, and friends encouraging and supporting me.
