TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

I Swear I Am Not Lost.............

Really, I am here (at least in spirit lately!).  But, since the whirlwind of Disn@y W*rld at Thanksgiving my universe has been in constant chaos.

Let me paint you a picture.

Thanksgiving at the big D-World.  Where we all had the dreaded stomach flu.  Yep, fun times.  But, what a great trip.  It will be something we always remember.  And.........I fit with tons of room in airline seats and rides.  Nope...........my fear of being escorted to a larger seat never happened.  I walked circles around my kids..........they kept complaining and I just kept walking.  That is a great feeling! 

The Saturday after we returned, I had PTO winter carnival.  Since I am the president, that means I am in charge.  I spent probably 40+ hours at the school that week.  My laundry room is still packed with dirty clothes from our trip!

Here is a picture of Lesley and I working our elf magic at the carnival.

Last week...........more PTO.  This time of year seems to be really busy with parties and events.  Did I mention I think I might be crazy for accepting this gig?!  Or at least maybe I will go crazy.

One thing that has not changed.............I have walked EVERY day.  That is non-negotiable for me.  It is my time.  My little sanity break.  My cell phone stays off until about 10 and everyone knows not to bother me.

I have not been logging my food for 3 weeks either.  And you know what?  I have been continually losing.  I actually think I may be eating less since I do not know how many calories I have to play with.  But, I am going to start tracking again because my type A personality is getting the best of me.

This week.........more class parties, a PTO Santa store for the kids, church pageant and Christmas with my parents. 

I sure am glad I have lost a lot of weight because I know I would have NEVER been able to keep up with my crazy life if I was 100+ more pounds.

So, yes right now is crazy with a capital C but..................I am living again.  I am present in my own life.  Life is good!
