Half Way Mark...Reset, Go

June is here, wow, it was January just a bit back. It is now 100+, humid, and very dry. So I had goals for working out and weight. I have not met those goals, but have reset them. Good thing about goal can reset. I am at 172. I have completed some goals though, I completed the Barton Creek Greenbelt. Yep, I did it a few weeks ago. I decided to get on the bike and got to the greenbelt and said why not. I didnt know what I was getting myself into, I rode the trail, then there wasnt any, just rocks, and more rocks. I kept going south more and more. I was half way and thought I should remember the lessons I learned from the survival shows I watched, thanks Bear Grylls! I ended up at the end, and I thought I was coming out at the exit. Nope I ended up under the freeway and had to walk up the cemant slope at 45 degree angle. It was tough.

So it is time to set the goals again and get ready set Go!

The new year has come around and I have a goal this year to get into shape, currently I am at 172. At my highest weight I was 183 - January 2010. Goal weight is 145 by June 2011. That is about a pound a week. I plan to cut calories and excercise. I will keep you up to date via this blog. Set you goals and reach them!

Happy New Year!! It is 1-1-11. I haven't written in a long time. 2010 has come and gone. I do have to say it was the best year the hubby and I have had. We moved away from the negative and the drama, and have learned more about each other and have fallen in love more and more. Will blog more this year!

Been Awhile

Hello Blog World,
It has been almost 5 months...sorry. Lot to catch up on.
1st I would like to say the my babies, Bruno & Merecedes turned 15 on 4/19.  They have been great dogs, and great companions.  Since they are 105 in dog years, I know time with them will be short.  Bruno hasnt been feeling great lately, and I love to spend time with them as much as I can.   It is hard to say good bye to a great friend, but I treasure the time I have had with them. Merecedes is acting like a puppy again, and running around and being crazy, love it.  I have been recording them on camera alot lately, so I can look back and see them. (see below).  And then there is Mya, who is 7 and the ruler of our house....
The hubby and I are doing great.  We celebrated our 4 years on 2/28.  Been a great 4 years, of course there has been some lows, but we have worked through them and came out of the valley.

I bought a bicyle about a month ago, and at 1st was afraid to ride it, since the last time I did was in 1993.  But since then I have been riding a few times a week, and longer trips.  I am loving it! I have lost 20 pounds also through eating better and it really works!!

Sorry not to much here.....

Hello 2010 Good bye 2009

What a year, so much went on, it has been truly a long year, and I am very happy there is only 12 hours left. The beginning of the year was pretty uneventful. Winter left, spring came, then summer. Summer was fun at first, had a great time with June Pride events, the parade and all. July was a great month especially the week I was able to spend with my family in Atlanta. August came and my world stopped for 3 months. I learned to live alone again, to cook and to take care of the babies. It was hard. Really hard, but I know I have grown as a person and learned to love my man more and more. Days turned to weeks, to months, to add up to 98 days. There were some good points in the 3 months. I went to 2 weddings, both were super fun, and I was very appreciative to be able to present at both. Ocotober cane and passed, a long rainy month. November came around and a homecoming and then Thanksgiving. This year I was very very blessed and so happy. December came, my birthday, 34 now no biggie. Christmas has come and gone, and this year was not as big as in the past and actually seemed rushed. I was very happy to have my family there. We did say goodbye to 3 of our family dogs, which are missed but I know in a better place. I am looking forward to new adventures, happiness and going somewhere on vacation. Have a great New Year!!

Christmas Eve

Hello, sorry I have not been back in awhile. Well since I last wrote my man has come home. He actually was home the Saturday before Thanksgiving, so I was super excited!! We had a great holiday dinner with the family, went home and watched UT beat Tx A&M. Then the following weekend win the Big 12, barely..and now onto the National Championship!!

As this holiday season has come upon me, I realized how fast it all goes by, July 4th was just a flash back, then the longest 3 months of my life, and now just 5 weeks later we are turning to a new year. I turned 34 this week. I remember when that seemed old! Now I feel good, health is good, have a roof over my head, food on the table and get to wake up each day to the person I love very much, sure it could be better, but it could be so much worse.
I look forward to a much better year, more properous and just a year of renewal and change. I have not set an resolutions, but I do cherish the time I have had over the last 5 weeks. We have grown closer and know how much we mean to each other. I might not be able to buy all the gifts I want, but really this year all I wanted is what I have. I am looking forward to have my family over our house tomorrow to celebrate Christmas together.

One goal I do have for next year is to write more. Merry Christmas!!
