Let's Be Real

It's Monday morning on the first day back to work after Christmas break.  I'm up before the sun to try and change my workout routine.  Usually Bill and I go in the evenings, and in the past few months I have really dreaded and very often times I have missed workouts because of one excuse or another.  I heard or read somewhere that if you stick with a routine for 21 days you'll change your habits and it will become second nature to you.  So, here I am!

Since I was on my big fitness/running/health kick in the past, I have yet again backed off and gained all the weight back that I lost two years ago.  It sucks, but I own it.  I did it to myself.  I will say though I have stayed moderately active, so getting into a fitness regimen hasn't sucked near as bad as it did the first go around.

I think running two half marathons back to back burned me out.  I took some time off from running and have had a HARD time getting back into the swing of things.  So, here I am getting back.

My friend and I are running the OKC Memorial Half in April, so I've started training for that.  In an effort to improve my pace I've started the 30 Day Shred.  I'll find something else for weight training after I'm finished with that.  In the past I've looked to for weight routines, but I'm still so intimidated by lifting that I never stick with it.

I'm off to get this day going!

Make it a great Monday y'all!

I'm out!

Happy New Year!!!

January 1st.  New Year, fresh start, yada, yada, yada...

Last year was pretty awesome.  Bill and I watched our toddling two year old turn three and very literally grow up in front of our eyes.  Over night he started speaking in complete sentences and going potty on his own (VERY big deal).  He's as rambunctious as ever and is so sweet and funny.

Bill still works for Halliburton and as best I can tell is still enjoying it.  We are slightly concerned about gas prices dropping, but I know God will take care of us no matter what.

He was asked this year to be the best man in his best friend's wedding.  HUGE honor!  It has also turned my strictly "weights only" husband into a little cardio bunny.  He's lost weight and looks good.  He's also become a little party planner too.  I think the latest on the bachelor party is Las Vegas at the end of May.  Sounds like a good time!
This year I saw myself through many wonderful times.  I'm truly blessed I tell ya.
...2 half marathons...first 5k with my mom...putting a 5k fundraiser together for two of my former students that passed away...getting ordained online so I could "marry" my best friends...took a trip with our friends to Las Vegas...finished up my first school year as a Reading Specialist...started a new school year at a new school with a new title (Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach)...celebrating my 30th birthday...getting a home loan another family Christmas in our duplex...I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding...found the perfect daycare/private school for Billy to attend before he's old enough for "big" school...and I made MANY new friends and strengthened old friendships along the way.  2014 was great!

2015 will be pretty great too!
We're going to buy our first house.
I'm going to run at least one more half marathon.
Billy will be four in May.
Our other Billy will be married in June
