So I was going to blog months ago, but didn't. So I'm doing it now! LOL

So the first thing I need to share is my exciting news: I got a brand new car the day after Christmas! I'm a proud owner of a 2013 Lime Squeeze Ford Fiesta! There are pics of it in my gallery. It's my baby and I LOVE it! I've never had a brand new car before and I've had my eye on one of these for several years now. I was originally going to get the cheapest one but they had the lime squeeze one on the lot and we crunched the numbers and it wouldn't have cost that much more. I drove it and loved it! It was exactly the car I wanted, color and everything! And I was able to bring it home the day I test drove it! So I love, love, love my new little car!!

So today I went back to the gym. Finally, right? Hubby and I have both gained in 2012 and we both have been continuing to gain in 2013. The downside of being happily married I guess! For me the big wake-up call was when I was getting ready to go to a meeting and NONE of my shirts fit me well. I was mortified! My hubby is doing Crossfit, I'm back at the Y doing Zumba and will start a weight training plan. I'm also working on teaching hubby to measure his food, so I'm hoping to get him on here! As far as diet, we're looking at going semi-Paleo. I don't know if I can give up all dairy. I like my organic cheese and greek yogurt. I have to read the book yet, but I know the basic concept. I have it on my iPad, so I guess I better get going on that. LOL

Oh and other exciting news: I'm going back to school in the fall! I'm going to go finish my degree in graphic design. I'm really excited about it! I've already been accepted and am looking at taking a class this summer already, actually. My first goal is to be under 200 pounds by the time I start my summer class, and to be at 175 by the time I start fall classes, and then to be 150 by Christmas. I think those are very achievable goals!! I'm very excited!

So I think that's about it. Next week I'm going to start tracking my food which will help me lose even more! I always lose weight so quickly when I track. I want to wait until after our next shopping trip. I'm very excited about this new chapter in my life!

I hope everyone is having a happy, healthy day!
