Okay so someone has been pestering me to update how things are going....just kidding about the pestering Oliver emoticon!!

I had been busy putting together a birthday party for my oldest son who turned 8 on the 23rd..(thanks for the wishes!!) Saturday was his party and it was alot of fun but alot of prep work!! All the friends that he invited and some came. There was plenty of chip and salsa, chicken/beef tacos with yummy salsa verde, cake and of course the piƱata full of candy for the kids!! By the end of the party I was EXHAUSTED! I did get plenty of exercise carrying tables and chairs up and down the stairs and running up and down bring the food and more!! Next year we are going to do it someplace where they handle everything!!

Okay now on to me.....I am doing well in maintaining..even lost a 1/2 pound!! I even bought a scale to weigh my food....while I was waiting in line to buy it I kept thinking "Oliver would be so proud"!! emoticon I also plan to do better with tracking and sticking with non processed foods...more fresh vegis/fruits as I was finding that I could eat a whole lot more. Some days I could barely hit the 1200 mark but was completely full and had hit my nutritional goals.

Exercise is going well but have not started my own personal goals which are completing the 30 Day Shred and starting the couch to 5K. My plan is to start the 30 Day Shred tomorrow and in 2 weeks start the other. I want to complete them both by the end of the Spring Challenge.

On a more personal note, my life is much better than it was this time last year. My husband is doing better with his gambling addiction and our household is more at peace which makes life much more enjoyable!!

Oh and those who have asked for pics....I PROMISE that I will have them soon....I really want to present the whole new me and I want to get my hair colored /cut first!! So I will be doing it either this weekend or the next!

GO DAISIES!!! emoticon

    And nothing better then a calm home to excel in healthy life!

    Can we get a deadline for the picture? Because if you don't like the colouring, it might get slip away again... :-)

    Glad things have been more peaceful in your home! Good job on losing a 1/2 while on maintenance. That's better than a pinata prize!
