Feeling Ever So Grateful

Last night, a little after 3AM, we awoke to a lot of shaking, rolling and noise.  We were having an earthquake.  We didn't think it would stop.  We got up to survey the damage and found things that had fallen over but nothing was ruined.  It made me stop and be grateful for what we have.  Our house withstood the quake and we were okay.  So glad that people have knowledge about how to build things to with stand it. This is just hard to explain but I am really grateful.  (we weren't very far from the epicenter.)

First Day Of School

Today was my first day back to school after a nice and relaxing summer break.  The day went well.  The kids are so sweet.  (I teach 1st grade)  I had 2 excellent parents that came off and on throughout the day to help.  That was so nice.  I am grateful that I have good parents who are willing and able to help.  Here's to a great year.

I have been feeling really good and  happy lately.  Not sure how to take it.  Could it be that I have been eating a lot better, been working out everyday, loosing ten pounds, having a great job, wonderful friends and a terrific husband?

I have lost 2 more pounds!!!  I am so excited.  I got a few more to go but it has been a great journey.  It hasn't been that hard and I am even liking exercise more.  I can even tell my endurance has gone up.

A New Journey

After hitting bottom (sort of) I decided to do something about it.  I have been embarking on a journey of weight loss and healthy eating.  On July 7th I started the 21 Day Fix program.  I am doing well on it.  I have been exercising everyday and controlling my food portions.  I have lost 5 pounds and I feel so much better.

I probably couldn't have done this without the support of my health coach Becky.  She really helped me get my mind in the right place to be able to start this.

So here's to changing my lifestyle!
