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 :)
