Art out of nothing!

My daughter is quite the girl, and has quite the imagination. She is always making something out of nothing, and this is no exception. This is a face she made outside out of a stepping stone, rocks and shovels. Awesome!

Wow! Progress!

Last night I went to the gym and had a personal training session to revamp my exercise program. I didn't expect much more than the same old thing I have been doing... maybe going up in weight a bit. However, that is not what I got!

Over the last 3 to 4 months I have gotten significantly stronger without even realizing it. I was doing 10 different exercises each week with weight no more than 40 lbs, most of the time around 20 lbs, to 19 with the average weight around 75 lbs topping out at 150 lbs. I am shocked, more because it didn't kill me, it felt good. I have gotten much stronger, and I can tell mostly because today, I am not dying with pain. My pecs are slightly sore, other than that I feel good!

It is an amazing feeling to be able to work hard and not have it kill you!

Wow! Progress!!!

It's Been A While!

I have been so busy, doing so many things that I have neglected my Blog! Shame on me. I really need to get back to blogging, and stick with it. I love to write, I just need to make time.

The year is amazingly half over and the summer is shaping up to be beautiful so far. I am just praying the last half of summer is as nice, and not tooooo hot!

My husband is embarking on a new adventure this summer, the STP or Seattle to Portland. It is a 202 mile road bike ride. He has been training for quite some time now and is getting in super shape and just amazing me with his perseverance. He is still working hard to take care of us, and to love us. He is the prince charming to my daughter, and to me :)

Charis is doing wonderful. She is growing like a weed and I can't believe she will be starting Pre-K this fall, and turning 5! Wasn't she just born yesterday? I don't know why, but the best things in life move on quickly and if we don't cherish them then we are fools.

I am now working out 3 or more times a week! Yay me! I am a member at a new gym in the area called The Lord's Gym. It is a wonderful place that makes everyone feel most wanted and wonderful. I am blessed to have found it. My goal is to be able to shop in the normal size clothing stores without having to go to plus sizes! I want to achieve that by October, our anniversary. It would be wonderful to feel better by then for our trip to the coast!

Well, it is off to do more laundry, cleaning and chatting with the sweet pea!

Until next time... Be Blessed!
