My Birthday at Lady Bird Lake. Husband in back, kids in middle, and me in front. 7/19/2014
The best Family Ever!
Randi, my sister, and me (in back) 7/19/14 Lady Bird Lake
Back in my younger days, I played tennis, ran around and ate and drank w/o a care. When I started having fertility issues, I also started gaining weight. One day though I woke up to realize that that my actions had taken me to an unhealthy place. I want to be health again. I want to be (mostly) soda free. I want to walk up even just one flight of stairs w/o feeling winded. I want to play w/my kids more. I want my healthy life back!
In year 2017,I'm taking my life back, one day at a time. I'm going to start exercising again and trying to eat more healthy, and especially drink more water. I would love for my children to see that people can turn around and that healthy living is thousands times better than not.
I've read these quotes below and wanted them on my own page:
"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
Apostle Paul to the Corinthians: "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body." (1 Corinthians 6:19).
I want to run a 5k w/o walking part of it.
I'd like to have less cushion.
I want to be active with my son and daughter and teach them that incorporating fitness and activity as well as eating a nutritional diet in your own life is a must.
I want my sweet babies to think of the word diet not as a weight loss plan but as the way you eat.
I WILL cut sodas out.
Forget about yesterday, walk and do core strengthing today. Eventually, I want to jog regularly again because I actually enjoy it the last time. So I'm going to enter in a couple of running events this year. On top of that since water is the only thing that doesn't make me want to gag after any kind of work out, I will eventually cut sodas out of my daily diet.
I'm a homegrown-cradle Texas Catholic Lady minus being any kind of southern conservative.

Oh nice! I haven't been out to Lexington yet, and I haven't heard of it but I've only been here a few years. It is nice when a man catches you off guard with a really nice compliment that you don't expect. Makes them mean that much more!

Thanks for your support! Baby Gabby came through surgery with flying colors, and is slowly recovering.

I usually put a little dab, dunno maybe 1/8-1/4 tsp of coconut oil in hot tea. Then cool it off with water or cream. I have some sort of milk intolerance, not really flat out allergy. So I use cream or a nut mylk.

5/22 is the best day!! :) My angel kisses are my husband's favorite. He's the first person, besides my parents, to tell me that. It meant a lot because I'm sure as you know, those with angel kisses get teased! Where in Texas are you located? Not far if y'all spend the day at Lady Bird! I love Texas, I am so glad I moved here!

Just give it time, it will. I've found sometimes when weight is not coming off, it's because my monthly cycle is about to begin.
Just eat right and you will see results. You are losing weight, even if the scale is not showing it.
