Onward and (Downward)

Downward, Literally. We have finally made the big leap and am closing the door on this chapter of living at nearly 9,000 feet.  Because the market is still on the low side here, after thoughtful prayer, we have decided to rent out our home here in Colorado and move onto our small ranch in Nebraska. We are ready. We are excited. We are terrified. Well, I am anyway. I have never had to move around like my husband previously had, so it is a little overwhelming and awesome all at the same time. But not only are we moving, we will be cutting our home literally in half. Yep, you heard me right. This family of four will be putting our feet up in just over 700 sq. ft. of pure quaint bliss. Do you like how I am trying to see the positive in this? I am. I have to. The Lord has blessed us with this land, more than we could of ever imagined being able to own, so I can sacrifice the square footage of my home for a little while. The outside is what is importance most to us. And when I look out over those rolling hills and can go out and feed the horses and cattle, I will know and can say, I am home.

P.S... If you know me at all, then you know that my mind is like a little hamster wheel working on all of the things I can do to this blank slate of a home and property. I'll keep you updated...

Emotional Eater

Emotional Eater.  That's what told me I was after I took their "style" of eater quiz.  It was no surprise to me.  I have always been able to tune out the bad with a big bowl of popcorn on my lap and phase out with it during a movie.  I also have this thing called boredom eating.  Another words, I eat just for something to do.  Now...before you go thinking I'm an overeater who shovels it in...think again. I'm the "teenie" snacker.  The one that you never know even was a calorie until you add it up everyday.  I know, everyone makes resolutions each year, only to have them fizzle within a few weeks. But this isn't just a resolution, it's a promise to myself to get back to the old me, the fit one, the one without the extra baby weight.  That extra 20 lbs has been haunting me for 9 months now.

It's time. It's time to sweat. 

No, I'm not just starting this.  I've been doing this.  For 3 weeks now and I feel better than ever.  It's not a harder than life plain either.  I work out 5-6 days/ week and my calories are between 1200-1500.  This hasn't been hard at all to track all of this on my iphone with  You enter your tracks your caloric intake along with carbs, proteins, fat, etc. and you track your workouts. You log in your weight, which I have vowed to only allow myself once a week, so that I am not obsessing about the number, and you get to watch the little graph go down as you get closer to your end goal.  In the last few weeks, I've not only lost pounds, but inches. 

I'm not giving up until the end. 

I'm not making excuses.  I've had enough of being tired trying to keep up with an almost 4 yr old and a 10 month old. 

So you can keep me accountable here.  Here's my weight loss confession to you. 

Will you join me?
