It truly feels like things are finally starting to come together.
Last week with all the hiking and such we did I logged 2768 calories burned. Not bad considering Tuesday and Wednesday I was pretty sore from Monday's hike. After Thursday's hike with the kids I haven't been sore at all. Today I started adding back my morning kettlebell workout. I haven't been eating a lot of crap and I've been trying to stay away from red meat. We eat way to much red meat, so I'm trying to get everyone eating more fish or meatless meals.
I'm starting to feel better - emotionally, physically, mentally. I did something on Saturday I never thought I would do. I did a tv interview! It will be aired tonight. Not sure if the interview if any of it will be used, but still I stood in front of a camera!!
I've been feeling good about how my clothes fit. I have no jeans right now, but my dress pants I've been wearing the most fit and look awesome on. I have 2 t-shirts I love even though they both are a tad big. I've been feeling so good, I even went and got my hair trimmed today. And if I can break 3000 calories burned I'll go in and get my hair coloured as a treat for the hard work.
Best of all, I'll be going back to school in September! I need a special government certification to work in nursing homes or hospitals and we've figured it out and I'll be able to pay one course at a time till I'm done -they give us 4 yrs to complete it. An once enrolled I can start work! I've very excited. Since starting this journey, I've been searching for the right job to study for and this one is it for me. I can see myself doing this till time to retire. I couldn't say that about any other job I've had.
Thunderstorm is moving in, better shut down the computers.

Reason behind my update blurb today...
Last year my oldest entered an idol contest for the town he lives in, he came in second. This year he entered again.....HE WON!! He called us late last night and then apologized for waking us up but he was so excited. We were excited for him but also excited (yes I cried) that he called us right after the competition to let us know. For those that know the heart ache and tough love we've gone through this year with him it was very emotional for us.
Today is my other son's grade 8 graduation. He made honour roll! Picked up his tux (I don't get a tux for grade 8 but what ever) and the corsage is ready for pick up. So not only is he graduating he has his first date.
Hard to believe where the years have gone. Only 5 years left and we will be an empty nest. Our daughter graduates grade 8 next year.
