Summer is here!

Monday, June 17, 2013

Well, well, well...where have you been Andra???!!! Oh yes I am still around but quietly around...I basically took some time "off" focused on my weight loss, and luckily I didn't let it get too out of control but now I feel ready to restart my journey. In May we took our first family vacation to Key West and D.C. to go to a family wedding and to D.C. to visit my best friend who had just had her first baby. It was an incredible trip and I just want to keep doing it and travel more with my family but of course be in great shape because let's face it, you do a lot on vacation and if you don't have the stamina and health you cannot truly enjoy it. I enjoyed all of it but it just made me realize that I need to focus again. My co-worker came back a month ago from maternity leave and to motivate her to lose some weight she suggested a Biggest Loser competition for all of use who were interested and it would be for $$. So we all put in $20 (7 of us) and the winner takes all, well actually the winner gets $120 and 2nd place gets their $20 back. It started on May 29th and ends July 3rd - 5 weeks long. It is based on % of weight lost per person. I've been in 4th place for weeks 1 & 2 and our 3rd weigh in will be in 2 days. I have lost 9 lbs and I feel like I am gaining some good habits back for sure and making exercise a priority has helped my overall mood for sure. I feel like this has been a great step back into my journey and I am ready!

Miss all you guys! I want to do another challenge on here when a new one starts, I feel like I wasn't into it enough in the beginning of the year!

Enjoy your summer!!

I attached a picture of my little ring bearer - he was awesome!
