After a little break, I've actually been missing this! I've also been thinking about the fact that it's quite fun to go back and read my old posts, especially the ones from the old blog. So, I am going to start up again but with the forewarning that it will be on an as-time-permits basis. I know it's fun to read blogs where there is lots of posting, and at times it may be that way, but bear with me if not.
Here is a current family photo that was taken while visiting Tyler's family in NewYork, for those of you who could care less about the sewing part. =)
By the way, I have decided that I am tired of looking and feeling the way I do, and it's time to do something about it. I know as soon as I say something like that people get all fuzzy & nice and saying things about me being tall and not looking heavy, but I just plain feel yucky. My midsection, primarily, has not been the same since stretching immensely 3 times to bear my children. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade them for the world; but it definately left me with some excess baggage, as some refer to it, "a spare tire". Having to buy 2x clothing is also quite limiting when shopping. And if you go to any height/weight charts, even at 6ft, 220 pounds is consered obese. And not the low end of obese.
We had a fun night of playing basketball awhile back, and after one game of "bump" I seriously thought I was going to pass out or have a heart attack after all that running. For those of you who've played "bump" with about 8 people, there's really not that much running!
Why I'm telling you this, is because I seriously need some motivation. Walking daily is my goal, and I figure if I let you know then I'll be accountable to you. Anyone want to join in? I'm starting out right now since Tyler took the kids to the livestock auction to watch the fun. Yipee.... walking where I want AND at the speed I want! Excuse me if only young mothers with multiple children that are too big to ride in the stroller can relate to this happiness. =)
As far as posting photos, I learned that you just have to load 5 photos and then go back and write between them for best results. So maybe I'll be having some frequent "5 photo" posts. =)
