Update on life - bonus pictures

Friday, January 11, 2013

I have been absent for a long time now! I kept toying with the idea of logging back in but I find I'm either all or nothing and so nothing kept winning. I've put on 10 lbs since my lowest weight of 152lbs and I don't like what I see. It's not actually the weight its the lack of muscles.

At my peak I had some nicely toned arms, less belly fat and my face was much slimmer. I'm ready to get back to that.

2012 was a HUGE year for us. In May we started building the basement of our new house. In June, the top half of the house was delivered (it's a modular). It took us until August to move in to the fully finished upstairs and a gong show of a basement. We endured the garage being roofed, garage doors installed, wiring, vapour barriering and finally got a heater put in October! It was cold for a few days there let me tell you. During this time I was also planning my wedding!

On August 25, 2012 we married in my parents backyard with only our siblings, parents, grandparents and 6 close friends watching. Then we proceeded to party with 95 of our closest family and friends. It was stressful the week before but the actual day was one of the best I've ever had. It was fun, low stress and full of love. Just how it should be. I married the love of my life and am so happy these days!

I started more courses in school and our son entered grade 1 in September. It's been a busy year and somewhere along the way I lost time for myself. This past week I decided it's time to change that.

I only have one New Year's resolution: to eat more vegetables. It's pretty simple and I know it's doable. I am hoping it will also be a catalyst for things to come.

I returned to hockey and jazzercise recently and have upped my water intake. After just 2 jazzercise classes I already find I'm eating better. I know that exercise motivates me to watch my diet and I know I lose or gain weight from food. The exercise is to make me stronger, the diet is to lose the fat. So that's my plan!

Blogging daily needs to happen again. I missed it!
