I'm FINALLY back and I FINALLY did it!!

OK I'm really really really infinity times really sorry that I haven't written in so long..... I have been swamped with work and school and photography and life in general. But the important thing is that I have had so many people ask if I was still doing this so I know y'all read it and that means so much to me! I can't get over how many people have told me my blog is inspirational and if I can inspire somebody to better themselves then I will certainly keep writing.

Not much has happened since I wrote last just life. My dog had her puppies 5 of them! We are selling them and they are all boys so if you want one let me know! They will be ready for their homes the second week in December. I have been doing my classroom observations and love it! So far I have observed, 6th grade, 1st grade, and today I'm going to the High School. I don't have a favorite yet!

OK if you're wondering what the "I FINALLY did it!!" portion of the title of this post is about..... DRUMROLL PLEASE........... I have lost 20 pounds!!!!! I was so doing my happy dance all over the house this morning despite the fact that I'm sure Eric didn't really appreciate it since he was still sleeping. AAAGGHH!!! I'm so flippin excited! I have been teetering on the 18-19 pound mark for weeks now! Well those 20 pounds can kiss the !*&$#@ that they probably came off of because they are NEVER coming back! I got to buy new shirts the other day that were in the regular section NOT THE WOMEN'S SECTION! This may not be a big deal to you, but being 24 years old I don't want to have to shop in the "bigger, old women's" section for clothes, I want the cute trendy clothes! They are not a 1,2, whatever X, they are an XL and I have never been prouder to buy an XL shirt before! I could probably go down a pant size too but I'm scared they will be too tight so I haven't tried yet. My biggest thing so far is I have a collar bone! I know for guys thats not a big deal but girls reading this will understand, its a big flippin deal to have a collar bone!!

OK well I think thats all of the update for this one. I will continue writing and will write again Monday! Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading!!!

Lots of Love,

My verse for the day is about achievement:

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Hello October!

Ok seriously where has 2012 gone???? It's October 1st, I had a goal to hit the 20 pound mark by this morning and I came SOOOO close, I have 2.4 pounds to go. Anyway, this morning I started the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred DVD. UMMM yeah my body is not a fan. I am going to start trying it after work instead of before work because I dont do well with waking up early. I will hit my 20 pound mark by this weekend. I just know I will.

We had a great weekend of doing a whole lot of nothing besides going to church yesterday. Oh and we went to the gym and I did 2.25 miles on the stair climber!!! I have proof!!

This month is Spina Bifida Awareness month. All I am going to say, is that so much more is known now about this birth defect than when I was born with it. There have been so many advances made, so ladies, please do your research and learn what you can do to prevent it. 

Here is my monthly updated picture! YAY!!!

Tonight, Eric and I are starting our planned meals, tonight is chicken tacos with black beans. OMG I'm so excited it sounds delishes!

Well I guess that's all for today, thanks for reading!

Lots of Love,

Today's verse is again about trusting God and HIS plan for you life. Not trying to show God what YOUR plan for your life is.

"'In the same way I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born,' says the Lord. 'If I cause you the pain, I will not stop you from giving birth to your new nation.'" says your God.
             Isaiah 66:9
