Oh, hi there! Yes, I am still alive but much, much bigger than the last time I posted (still 5 pounds lighter than my heaviest weight ever, and most of it is baby! Score!) I just wanted to jump on here and reacquaint myself with the site since I plan to jump right back onto the weight loss wagon as soon as this child decides to make her appearance (Any day, kid!)... Yes, baby is a girl (Girl #2 for hubby and I!) and her name is Amber. I am very ready to meet her and very ready to resume my weight-loss and pursue all the goals that I had set for myself before getting pregnant. One of them is doing Couch to 5K. I REALLY want to be a runner. Still. It's something I was starting to do right before I found out I was expecting, and the urge to do it has only gotten stronger. It might be difficult getting out there and doing it with a 2-year-old and a newborn, but dang it, I want to do it! Anyway, hopefully this last 8 or 9 months has treated everyone well. Looking forward to reconnecting with my SP buddies and making new ones as well. Thanks for the birthday wishes also. 28 is going to be a good year. :)

Happy Sunday! It is my last day of Christmas break from school and I am looking forward to going back tomorrow. Mostly because I am ready to keep progressing toward getting my degree but also because I have been ultra lazy the last few weeks. According to FitBit, some days I didn't even walk a mile... In a whole day... The good thing is that I have a jogging class that I am taking this quarter so not only does my body depend on moving and working out but so does my grade. I had a 3.5 gpa last quarter and want to do even better this quarter, so any number of A credits that I can get, I will take!
We got an Xbox 360 and I started playing the Sims again on the computer, so I know I was vegging out more than working out. However, there were a few times, like yesterday, where I just had to get out and move. My family and I went for a pretty good walk along the river and it was such a nice day. I think we might do it again today if it's not too cold out. It's kind of hard on the little one when it's so windy and cold.
On another note, my husband and I swore off fast food and deli food for a whole year! I am so excited to do this! I think we will both benefit immensely. I know he doesn't eat very well either, and I think once we both realize how good it feels to not be weighed down by junk, we will probably never go back.

I am so sorry! I kind of failed at this challenge since I didn't log on every day, but I still want to answer all the questions. Please forgive me? :)
14. True or false: I like the way I look. Elaborate.
False, to be completely honest. I have a baby belly that I still need to lose. I don't feel good about myself. But even when I was 145 and in excellent shape I still thought I was fat. So, to fix this it's going to have to come from within. I can see that now. I like myself better now than I used to, but I don't love the way I look. Yet.
15. True or false: I feel good about myself. Elaborate.
Like I said in the last question, I like myself more these days than I did as a teenager, but I have a long way to go before I feel good about myself.
16. If I could change one thing about myself, it would be _______. How and why would you make that change?
I would change the way I see myself. I would love to be able to look at myself the way my husband does. He sees something else than I do. I wish for just once that I could see myself through his eyes.
17. One word that best describes me. Elaborate.
Kind. I care a lot about people and the hardships and struggles that others face. I think I will make an excellent nurse.
18. One word that least describes me. Elaborate.
Extroverted. I am not loud. I like quiet. I like alone time. I am in my head a lot and don't say much unless it's something worth saying. I'm not one of those people that talks and talks but never actually says anything.
19. Think of the person who loves you the most. How would they describe you?
He'd describe me as smart, intelligent, funny and beautiful. He tells me that every day.
20. What simple step can you take to make yourself happier today?
To just love those who love me and forget about not being perfect.
21. This is a long one. You just spent three weeks reflecting on yourself and your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Write yourself a heartfelt, loving intention to help you reach your goal.
You are not perfect and you never will be. It's time to let go of that unachievable goal and reach for something real instead. Get healthy so you can grow old with your husband and watch your children mature into kind, compassionate adults. Get healthy so you can enjoy your life and the things you love to do. Start living and stop hiding.

12. True or false: I like to be pushed. Elaborate.
True, mostly. I feel like I do better when I have someone or something pushing me. I get kind of competitive.
13. True of false: I need to be pushed. Elaborate.
False, mostly. I can usually get myself motivated enough to do what needs done, but sometimes a swift kick in the backside can work wonders.
