Turning Over a New Leaf

Today, December 28, 2010, I have started the Herbalife program. My goal is to lose 30 lbs (more would be nice) before Summer. Gary started Herbalife and lost 18 lbs in 8 weeks. I understand that men are usually able to lose weight a lost faster than women, so I will try my hardest not to compare myself to him and his success. I am writing this as a promise to myself that I will lose this baby weight - not just what I gained with Marshall but what I had left over from Ashlyn - and be healthier. So here's to a new beginning for 2011! 2010 was great to my little family and I can't wait to see what is in store for 2011!

P.S. We had a great Christmas....I will post pictures later!

Thought for December

My new favorite quote for this month:

"If we look for what is wrong with the Christmas season, we can surely find it. Nevertheless, if we look for the good, we can see this time of year with new eyes—perhaps even with the eyes of a child." -PRESIDENT DIETER F. UCHTDORF

Merry Christmas Everybody!

NFR 2010

Last week we had the awesome opportunity to meet up with our good friends, Geneya and Josh, and go to the NFR. It was so hard to leave the kids (but not too hard). Gary and I haven't had time away together for so long so it was nice just to be a couple again. It has definitely been something that we have been neglecting so to have time away from home together was just what we needed! I am horrible at remembering to take pictures so I stole some from Geneya's blog - Thank goodness she remembered to take a couple of pictures!

We had so much fun and can't wait to go next year - hopefully for more than one night!
