No, I didn't forget I had a blog!



So it's been a couple months since I've posted.. not much has been going on. My life mainly consists of going to the gym and taking care of the kids. The only interesting thing that has happened is that my Mother in Law passed away at the end of March. My husband handled it well, but my Father In Law has been lonely. The two were married for 51 years! She died of natural causes at the age of 70.

My weight loss is still going very well. I'm currently down to about 158. I had a slow couple of months after we got our taxes back. We began going out to eat a lot, and some of my bad habits came back, like snacking a lot and eating foods higher in fat. For about 2 months I hovered around 164, then finally one day decided to kick it back into gear. My problem now though is I am eating a proper diet, no snacks and everything is low fat and 100% whole wheat, just like I should, and I'm exercising like crazy, pushing myself to the limit almost daily, but I'm no longer losing weight. For 2 weeks straight I lost 1 pound a week, and last week I didn't drop a single ounce! Must be that plateau everyone talks about.. hopefully I can push myself through it because I'd like to get to around 140.. maybe a little lower.

I'd like to say that I'll be posting more often now, but that probably won't be the case this month.. May is our hectic month! On the 7th is my wedding anniversary, we'll be married 7 years now, go us! The 13th is Javy's birthday... he'll officially be a teenager, Lord help me! Then there's Mother's Day tucked in there.. and to top it all off, my birthday is on the 12th. I'll be celebrating the 9th anniversary of my 21st birthday. Yep, it's a big one, and I am terrified!

Oh, and on the 22nd of May will be my 10K Great Strides walk for Cystic Fibrosis!! I'm very excited, but also very nervous because I haven't gotten a whole lot of donations as of yet. Hopefully I can get a few more before the walk. If you're interested in helping out the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, or getting more information about it Click Here and wish me luck on my walk!
