I filled out an entry for a drawing for American Laser while I was at the gym last week and don't you know I actually won the 3rd place gift certificate-$300! Wow-I don't usually win things that I enter so I was pretty shocked. So I went in today for my consultation and see just what $300 could get me-not a lot come to find out! What I really wanted-my laser of my bikini area-was close to $2000-yikes!!!!! But I was able to get some microderm abrasion so that should help with the age spot on my right cheek. I've decided I'm going to get my bikini area done when I make my goal weight!!! I did ask how much it would be to have Todd's neck done (so he won't have to constantly have to shave it-that's $1550 so I'll be saving for that one for him...
I'm still going strong with LAWL-I'm going to go weigh in on Friday so we'll see what a week on program has done for me. Natalia LOVES the chocolate LA Lites that I have right now and it's hard to explain to a 3 1/2 year old that Mommy needs them for her weight loss program and that they are very expensive ($29 a week!) so I've been sharing a small portion of them with her but geez.....

So today I had my very first weigh in at LAWL after starting the program on Saturday and I am happy to report that I'm down 2.8 lbs!!! That's even with Aunt Flow showing up today-woohooo!! Very exciting! I then headed to the gym, unfortunately I wasn't feeling 100% and didn't run as long as I would have liked to-but I did get 1/2 hour (2 miles) in on the treadmill. Plus 20 minutes of weights (arms, back & chest). So I feel like today was a really good day!!
Todd's in Chicago today and tomorrow for a phone job-should be crazy up there-with the Bears in the Superbowl this coming weekend!
I'm going to try and get back into scrapbooking my weight loss journey-here's one from when I was doing JC 2 years ago that I just revised to starting over with LAWL-it's still applies today-lol!!

Well I did it! I'm starting my own blog! I never saw much reason to before-I mean what did little 'ol me have to blog about?? I'm not famous, not a designer, etc. but I finally feel it's a good idea to "journal" about my everyday "normal" life and since I'm always on the computer why not do it here??
I didn't really make any New Year's resolutions this year but have instead felt like I've made some plans inside of me. I've been going to the gym on a regular basis, 3-4 times a week, working on running especially. I have a goal to run the Big D 5K in April and the Plano Race for the Cure in June-these are things I REALLY, REALLY want to do. I joined LA Weight Loss this week, this hit the pocket book harder than I had hoped, but I am truly feel this is the plan for me to help me eat healthier and in turn teach my 3 1/2 year old daughter, Natalia, healthy eating habits for life. I do have one event coming up this summer that is additional motivation for these changes-the July 28th wedding of my little brother (little B for short), Josh in New Hampshire. I very, very much want to show my family that I can do this (I'm not going to tell them that I 've joined LAWL).
I also want to be a better wife & mother. We had to fire our housekeeper as she wasn't doing a good job at all-so now it's up to me to clean-ha! That's a good one! Something I'm terrible at is housecleaning and I can admit it!!! But I am vowing to learn and get better at this. Also as of next month we'll have been in this house for 7 years and we've acquired and retained a LOT of STUFF! I want to go thru everything and only keep what we REALLY need. I also want to put more structure into Natalia's day when she's not at school-working on reading, writing, etc.
Whew! I'm tired just writing it all down but it feels good to actually have it "written" down. Now to get started....
