Biggest Loser

It's that time of year again, where we set "goals" for ourselves. This year my goal is to continue my healthy lifestyle I have adapted over the past year! I plan on going to the gym 3-4x per week. My friend/co-worker & I go on our lunch break! I want to continue eating healthier and tracking what I take in.

One of my friends at work decided we should all do a "Biggest Loser" challenge. We started this past Friday and it will go for 12 weeks. I haven't been very good at going to the gym so far this year, but I have been better about tracking what I eat. I was very pleased when I stepped on the scale Friday morning.

151.8 lbs!!

In the past 19 months since Ethan was born, I have lost 76 pounds! My goal for this 12 week challenge is to lose 10 pounds. If I lose more than that, GREAT! I will not beat myself up over it if I don't lose 10 pounds either. My end goal is only 15-20 pounds away. It seems like such a small number, but it is becoming apparent to me that I REALLY have to work to lose this last 15-20lbs. I know I can do it though!

Good luck to everyone out there who is trying to get healthy this year!!!

We are ALMOST homeowners!

The house I talked about making an offer on before didn't go through. We couldn't work out a deal with the bank. So we kept looking the past month and found a house we loved yesterday. We took my in-laws by today to take another look at it, and knew it was the right one for us. We put an offer in & it was accepted!! It comes with brand new appliances including front load washer & dryer =) So we have to have the inspection this week and an appraisal. Hopefully everything goes smoothly and we should be closing the end of February! I can't believe we are ALMOST homeowners...!!!!!
