Time to loose the weight

Really, today, today is my motivation.  My leggings, which are a size MEDIUM.....are too small.  They are killing me...and with my dress, I look like I'm 5 months pregnant.  Which would be great except that I'M NOT PREGNANT (tho I secretly wish to be).

I am 5 feet 6.5 inches tall and...I can't believe I'm putting this out there in blog world I weigh 146 lbs!  AAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKK.  I haven't weighed that much since I had A five years ago.

Is my metabolism slowing down?  Is it possible that I'm really that much of a slug?  Is it a 40 thing? 

For most of my life I have been tall and skinny.  I did gain weight my freshman year in college...and then lost it rather quickly.  But I'm not loosing it.  Granted, I sit on my butt all day at work staring at a computer.  I think it's time to stop shopping at lunch and start walking when the weather is decent.  Something, to just get my blood flowing.

Hubby needs to loose weight too......a lot of weight.  So, I am going to sit down and discuss with him tonight what we are going to do.

I don't have the time or the money to join a gym.  I would really like to start running....set a goal and maybe do a 1/2 marathon some time.   But it's so dark in the morning and dark by the time I get home from, what is a girl supposed to do.

Kristy, if you read this, I know you are going to recommend Jillian Michael and yes, I will pull that out again.  Three days a week I will do that.  I PROMISE.  Pinky promise.

Because today, I feel like a big ole' fat cow.  And I don't like that.

Welcome 2012

Happy 2012!!!!!!!

Well, Happy 2012!  I know I've been MIA for a while....sorry, life has sorta gotten out of hand.  Between Thanksgiving and birthdays and traveling to South Carolina for Christmas and new car seats and emergency room trips, well, it's been a whirlwind to say the least.

But I'm past that now and once I can get my house de-Christmas decorated, I shall be in the great frame of mind to move on!

There are posts going around the blog world about Home Goals for 2012 so I thought I might play along.  Not sure if I'll link up but I'll play along here.

Home Goals 2012

Live more simply.  I need to clean out, de-clutter and de-stress my house.  We do not need so many clothes, toys, coffee cups, etc.  Will be calling Good Will for a pick up soon.

Love more.

Eat Healthy

Get into shape

Change out the sliding doors on the front hall closet to bi-fold doors...paint the inside a bright color.  Replace the shelf and rack.  Organize better.  This one I just came up with yesterday.  I just realized how much that closet annoys the crap out of me.

Paint G's bedroom.  She's 7, it's time.  This also requires replacing baseboard trim to match the other rooms in the house.  However, that leads to the next goal

Clean up the old office and convert to a guest room.  Requires cleaning up and out, replacing baseboard trim, some repainting....

Paint old playroom.  Really just one wall and the back of the book shelves.  However, also needs new baseboard molding.

That's about it for now.

I'm at work and haven't downloaded the pictures I took from Christmas yet (with my NEW CAMERA).  I will try to get to that this weekend.

I hope everyone has a wonderfully happy, healthy, and fantastic 2012!
