About Me

I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

week 1 weight loss

Well the first week went pretty well, which is fantastic! The un-fantastic part is that most of that weight was just fluctuation since I was pretty high when I started. Oh well. I still lost 2.7 pounds! I told Darren he had to help me by making sure I didn't pig out on chocolate and got up to work out in the morning. So last night (I totally forgot I told him that) I went to grab a piece of candy and he practically tackles me in the kitchen and won't let me eat it! I was mad at the time but now I'm glad. And then this morning the alarm went off and I didn't want to get up to work out and he shoved me over and ripped off the covers and turned on the light. Then when I still refused to get up he tickled me until I relented. Annoying. But effective. So he's like my personal trainer now, I guess. I have managed to work out several days in the past week. I did cardio this morning before work and when I get home I'm going to do some strength training for a little bit. Then I have to clean the house. Ugh.


  1. I'm following you too! Coolness! :-P Now we can listen to each other rant and rave. That will be very helpful considering who we are married to... :-P

  2. I'm trying to lose weight too. I've had lots of setbacks like minor surgery and back problems. But...in another month I'll be able to excersise again and I am motivated to be better than ever. I just ordered another workout video called the thirty day shred. We'll see. We're going to Mexio NEXT year, so I figure I better get a jumpstart on my beach figure. I like the new blog layout!
