I am working to finally conquer the one goal I have always put to the bottom of my to do list: lose weight and lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

No more waiting for that magic Monday (that never comes) to start a "diet". The days of setting unrealistic expectations and thinking that because I went "off" the "diet" in some way entitles me to a free pass to binge until the next magic Monday when I will start that "diet" again are over. I am done. I will no longer hear that I have such a pretty face. I am a beautiful person on the inside and outside. Period. It does not need to be qualified.

    I can only imagine the daily routine of having 3 kids :) Life for us has been great. We have gotten settled into our new home and realize that we have space and funds for another little one. So hopefully if all goes well that will happen early next year.

    I understand the slacking and trying to get back. For me it was more the intake control that was slacking. The exercise part hasnt been a problem and since my wife started teaching areobics I cant exactly skip her class :P The biggest hurrdle is the mental issues knowing you were at a certain point and now you have to work back to that just to start moving forward again.

    Enjoy your day and ttyl :)
