Dating Ruins it ALL!!!!!

Ok, So I have been divorced for three years and I was separated for almost two years before the divorce was finalized. I dated some, but for the past three years I haven't dated at all. So that being said, I never knew how much time dating actually takes, my workouts and eating habits have suffered!!!!! Well that changed today....

Today Max (the dog) and I went on a four mile walk and I could have gone farther but he didn't seem up to the we headed home. In fact he is now curled up here next to me on my bed as I write this. I am then headed to Zumba tonight and I am going to be sore tomorrow, I will not complain.....this is my fault and I must get back on track.

So the new man in my life is pretty much amazing and too good to be true! I was very hesitant, we had been talking since November and he asked me out in January, we share a lot in common and it's a little scary. Our first date consisted of dinner, which lasted two hours and I chocked twice on my rice!!!!! He kept making me laugh, is there anything sexier then a guy who makes you laugh?? I don't think so. He took me out on a weekend where I have the boys, I have never introduced them to anyone I was "dating". I had two serious relationships after their dad that went horribly wrong and they haven't met anyone else since then. But, Adam is 9 now and very perceptive and knows everything already. I thought it best to let him know that I was going out on a date, I let him ask all his questions and answered the best that I could. He asked if he could meet Dustin when he picked me up and I thought sure.....where is the harm?? So he was only here 5 mins while picking me up, he brought me a red rose...........I have never had that happen on a first date. 15 minutes after we left my mom calls to tell me that Adam is freaked out that he just met his new step dad!!!!! What a kid LOL!

So for three days that is all I heard about, me and Dustin getting married. It was kind of cute and endearing, and thankfully Dustin wasn't freaked out about this. He has been an awesome sport and the boys love him!!!!So far it's a pretty smooth ride. Other then not working out, which isn't Dustin's fault because he is trying to get healthier too as well. So, I am now recommitted and hitting the exercise hard!

The New Year

So, I sort of fell of the face of the earth. I got busy living and didn't make the time to write about it. The boys and I had an awesome Christmas. I got a bunch of new clothes that I now get to shrink out of!!!!!

I am in awe of how much we have changed since last Christmas! I am half the person that I was in 2011. They are both growing like weeds and Cole now allows us to get decent pictures with him.

I didn't allow any formal pictures to be taken last year. Poor decision in hind sight! Oh well, you can still see the difference.

New Years was awful, the boys spent it with their dad which turned out to be a blessing! I had a migraine and was in bed at 6pm!!! The neighbors then woke me up at midnight with fire crackers!!!

So on New Years Day I started strong and I haven't stopped! I went to the gym and for the first time in my life I did 20 minutes on the Elliptical and it felt like an awesome accomplishment. I also did 20 mins on the stairs, and 20 mins on the treadmill. I worked out all the rest of the week heading back to body pump. I couldn't hardly walk after that.

I have maintained working out 5-6 days a week since then. I love it, I am again addicted. I haven't seen a weight loss yet, but I am not discouraged. I am in my 18 silver jeans!!!! So inches are coming off. On Jan. 12th my mom, best friend, and I headed off to the Zac Brown Band concert. I wore a dress I bought back in September and looked pretty cute :)

I still hate my legs. I hope that this changes someday. They just seem so huge compared to the rest of me. Anyway, the night of the concert we decided to have a damn ice storm! So I basically froze to death. I ate too much, drank too much! Brandi left her car at my house and had to work at 10:30am. So I got up on Sunday and went out to drive over to her place, well there was so much ice on it, I couldn't get it off. My dad came out to help, and her husband drove her over instead and then my dad fell on the ice. He ended up in the ER with a bad muscle spasm in his back. I fell on the ice Monday and banged my elbow at Brandi's house. I did work out still though on Monday.....go me! Then yesterday, my mom calls at noon and said she fell on the ice and may have a concussion.

Well she does, so she is home with me today. Dad went back to work, so hopefully I can make it back to Zumba tonight. I hate missing. I hope that you are all doing well! I am hope to catch up with you all soon :)
