My Fitness Pal

It has taken me a long time to actually make a change in my diet and really try to lose weight.  I've been tracking my food intake for almost a year now but haven't made any real progress.

This last week (since I turned 30 on 3/25/2013) I have eliminated all my favorite foods (bread, cheese, wine, etc...) and really been pushing on my gym time.  And I've lost 8 pounds! Looks like I'll be keeping this new food habit for awhile.  Losing weight feels awesome!

One Word

The challenge is not to create a resolution. No list of goals. Just one word.

A single word to focus on all year long.

I like the simplicity of this idea. When I read about this challenge, my mind was immediately drawn to a certain word in a rare moment of decisiveness.

My one word for 2011 is: JOY!

Quick Trip

Mike and I visited Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana briefly this past week. We flew into Minneapolis, drove over to La Crosse, helped Mike's best friend get married, drove up to Green Bay to see the stadium, went through Chicago traffic at rush hour, finally made it to Lafayette and Kokomo to see family and friends before returning to Minneapolis to fly home. It was a whirl-wind visit but a fun one.

It was wonderful to catch up with old friends in Lafayette and make some new ones in Wisconsin. I loved introducing Mike to my family and friends. Parts of my past are sketchy and not fond memories but it was great to go back and let Mike meet the people who helped me get through it all! (you know who you are...) I wish we had been able to see everyone but we were literally in town for only a couple hours. Next time we'll plan a visit for longer so we can catch up with everyone. :-) I love and miss you all! I am SO blessed to have such amazing friends as you.
