Happy New Year

Thanks for the memories 2017. I’m not big on resolutions because really each day is a blessing and an opportunity to make a change. You don’t need January first for that. My chance came June 7th. Nothing really significant about that day but it was the day hubby and I decided to change our way of eating and joined the Keto bandwagon.

Now most people hear Keto and thing bacon and high cholesterol. That isn’t what it is all about, although bacon is a perk! I really didn’t expect much I mean after all I had been overweight my whole life. Although I was never one to diet as they really don’t last, I had made a lifestyle change before getting pregnant. My goal was to get back to that weight. Slow and steady wins the race as they say. Well six months later I’m happy to report I’m there. I’d like to think I’m a modest person but gosh darn it, this was a great accomplishment. One I should be proud of, and even more importantly one I got to share with my hubby who rocked the hell out of Keto! I’m so proud of him. A friend asked me if I’m at my goal weight? I’m not sure what that would be. If I look on that list of height/weight at the doctor’s office I’m probably still considered overweight, maybe even obese. But who the hell is 5’10” and 115lbs?? Other than a supermodel of course.

I’ve learned to not worry about that number on the scale. I’ve learned to trust the process. I wasn’t sure wether or not I should even write this post but if I can encourage one person to make a change then it was worth it. I’m not specifically talking about weight loss, it can be about anything. Stop being scared. You have to start somewhere. Why not let today be that start? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Take the class, go for that hike, give it a shot.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year. May your 2018 be full of health, happiness, love and laughter! And remember go for it! Whatever is holding you back isn’t worth it.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  Amazingly we entered 2015 with a sense of calmness and peace in our house.  Who am I kidding?!? There was a baby crying, toys thrown all over the floor, music blaring.  Oh wait that was January 1st.  On New Year’s Eve we were all tucked away in our beds by 10:30 and I honestly wouldn’t have had it any other way.I won’t sit here and bore you with my plans for the new year.  Plus no fun in reading it all in advance, you’ll have to wait for it to play out week by week.

The one thing I’ll tell you is my goal is to care.  I guess I should explain.  Of course I care about my family, friends, etc., but I need to stop caring about the fact that they breakfast dishes aren’t done and put away by 10am (or at least that’s what my hubby tells me 🙂 ).  I have to care less that the beds aren’t made and that there are toys across the living room floor.  That is my goal not only to myself but to my little girl.  Crazy to believe in a few months we’ll be celebrating a birthday and yes the planning has begun.  I want to take these last few months before the big 0-1 and cherish them even more.  So if you come to my house and find some crumbs from the apple, spinach, banana muffin I baked for my LO, or if you see the coffee mugs still in the sink at 1:00pm, I’m sorry.  I was too busy getting hugs and kisses from my little one to notice.

Wishing you all a great 2015.  Remember this is not a dress rehearsal so make today count!!
