life changes!

I'm fairly certain my fans/friends/followers are dropping like flies.


But for those of you who are still around...

Here is an update :)

For starters, we are still very much alive :)

In fact I am VERY certain that I am finally living my life.

I'm learning to love myself.

I'm learning to take care of myself.

I'm learning to trust myself.

Most important I am getting to know myself.

Not just as a mother.

Not just as a friend...

but as a woman.

I've learned that when I start to love myself, the rest of my life will fall into place.

(with hardwork of course)

I started to realize that when I care about myself, I care about what I put into my body.

When I love myself I WANT to go to the gym.

In fact I CRAVE the gym!

When I did the 30 day shred, I dreaded it. Now my hour and a half at the gym is almost a retreat!

I've learned that when I really got to know myself, I didn't need to spend money on things to make myself happy!

I started to pay off my debt. I got my spending in order!

My life is slowly becoming what I've wanted it to be.

I am not there yet...

but I am getting there.

I've lost 15 pounds (in a month) .

I've paid off a credit card, and a student loan.

I've worked more.

Gone to the gym almost every day (Minus last weekend, when I was away from home!)

These baby steps are getting me closer and closer to my goals.

I think the biggest thing is that I am PROUD of myself!

I am able to celebrate my accomplishments, and not down play them!

Because when you work hard, you deserve it.

And by golly, I'm working hard! :))

So if you have been wondering why you haven't seen me..

Well now you know :)

Because changing your life is A LOT of work!

Just remember... I LOVE you all!

p.s. the picture was taken the day before I started working out... :) I plan to get pictures taken when I meet my goal weight :)
