Happy New Year! Sorry I haven't blogged in a minute, I just had a lot going on with work and family so I took off a few days. My weight loss challenge groups are filling up and it's taking up a lot of my blogging time, but I'm excited to be part of something fun for 2015!
Christmas was great, we came up with something pretty fabulous for Madison this year and I'll be sharing all about it next week in a separate blog post. Aiden could have cared less about his gifts, but he gave me the BEST gift and said Mom, or more Mum, I dunno maybes he British :)
NYE we did our usual get together with my best friend Amber, the kids run around and play and we get to eat. Win, Win. How beautiful is her table setting? She even painted and glittered those bottles in the back, gorgeous!
New Years Day was cold and rainy, the perfect day to stay home and clean. I have the hardest time getting rid of old toys with Oliver around, he insists that she still plays with EVERYTHING. Sigh. I hate clutter, it's a struggle to not get rid of almost everything, obviously I'm going to need to do it when no one is home. After all the cleaning we started a fire and took a nap, it was glorious. Aiden must have taken two 2.5 hour naps and then slept all night 7pm to 8am. He can't hang with us girls.
Most of last week I didn't track my macros, we did a lot of celebrating and eating food that I didn't prepare so I felt like it would have been a LOT of guessing. I tried to eat smaller portions and stop when I was full, I'm happy to say I maintained my weight through the holidays and that's really all I can ask for!
2015 my focus will be on consistency in my diet and weight lifting. I still have plans to run some smaller races, but not anything past a 13.1 --- actually I may very well do the Dallas Marathon again next year, TBD. I have a lofty goal of tracking every bite EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. for the next year. I have found a 'diet' that I think works well for me, my body, and my life. I'm excited to see what kind of changes I get this year!!
On a more personal level I'm really trying to focus on my mouth, I tend to joke around a lot especially with people I'm comfortable with and I've been known to accidentally offend people. I need to think before I speak sometimes for sure because not everyone gets or appreciates my humor.
Speaking of my humor, I got this guy the best Christmas gift...
A mouse pad full of my selfies so he too can stare at my face all day long :) I found the easiest website for gift, Collage.com , I also ordered a blanket for my mother in law with all the kids pictures on them and it turned out FABULOUS. The quality was amazing and I literally linked to IG and pulled pics I wanted within 10 minutes, super easy!
Have a great weekend!
