Backyard Photo Shoot

So, instead of reporting on my horrible after Thanksgiving weight gain this weekend, I will show you a little photo shoot we had because I was needing a quick updated photo to use for Braden's dedication this next weekend (there will be a post on the dedication itself next week) at our church.

P.S. - Is it totally sad that my legs are extremely sore from squatting on the ground yesterday while drawing with side-walk chalk with the neighbor kids?!?!? Ugh, I'm SOOO out of shape!

Anyway, hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving!

My Mission...continued...

Monday's weigh-in...

Well, I can't say I did much by the way of eating good, or working out this past week, and I failed to go to the gym and get signed up, but on that note, I weighed in this morning at 135.5 which is a 1/2 pound lighter than last Monday, LOL! I'll take whatever results I can get at this point...I know, sad!

Anyway, today is a fresh week, and at least I've started it slightly lower than last week. So, my journey continues. I'll report back in a week!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their families. Gobble! Gobble!

My Mission...

Today, I will start my journey to weight loss. My goal is to lose 10 pounds in the remaining 47 days left in 2010. This will be a struggle for me, only because I rather come straight home and spend time with my family, but I know that to be my best for my family, I must feel my best, and right now...I don't.

I can use all the encouragement I can get, and I will post my results as the days go by. Ever since I had my son I have carried an extra 15 pounds and I don't feel good about myself 80% of the time. I want to have more energy, feel good in my clothes, feel pretty for my husband, and right now I am none of these.

Today's weigh in is 136 (and this is deceiving because after my shower and a bowl of cereal I was 138, so I feel like I'm cheating by saying 136, especially when I come home in the evening and it says 140). Anyway, I just want things to stay in their place if you know what I mean, LOL! So, please help me, root me on, check-up on my progress, encourage me, and tell me what you're doing to stay healthy and in shape, it motivates me to keep on track!! I will weigh in every Monday morning so stay tuned!!
