I'm Living My Life

It's been awhile my friends. So many things have happened. There is so much to share. I guess I will start by saying that I've been doing great with my resolutions. Which is why I haven't been around the blogosphere.

I'm  living my life. 

It makes for many things to write about, but I am using that time differently these days....

It's been great to spend more time with my little boys. To have my focus completely on them. It's a relief to not be distracted by my cell phone, kindle or laptop during the day. I think in a way I was beginning to feel stressed out by technology. But not anymore. I've just let it go... and it's a breath of fresh air.

I turned 30 (yikes!) on January 1st. To commemorate this historic moment Jason gave me a kindle fire. I am in love! It's wonderful to browse for books to read and have them instantly available at my fingertips. I've all ready finished four books and have a long list of others to check off before this year is over! I love curling up at night on the couch and getting lost in a book. :)

And, I joined Weight Watchers! I officially started last Saturday and I lost 6 pounds in my first week. Surprisingly, it hasn't been that hard of a lifestyle change for us. Jason is pretty much doing it with me, since he eats whatever I do. I love the recipes I've found on their website and I'm finding it pretty easy to follow their Points Plus program. I've also been taking classes at the gym and made it there four times last week. My goal is to go atleast 4 to 5 days a week.

I feel good. Really good.

My life feels back on track. And I couldn't be happier.

Any good healthy recipe recommendations? Do you have a great book you'd recommend for me?

  2. Welcome to WW :D The Points Plus program is amazing, definitely the best one they've had, which is probably why I've been able to stay on it for a year now!
