It's Time to Take Action!!

This is me approximately 2 years ago, a size 6, when I bought this dress to wear for a friends wedding. I am planning to wear this dress again in a year for my mother-in-laws awards ceremony for her job. She said I have to dress up. For those of you who don't know me that well...I don't like to wear dresses much. This morning I woke up feeling like a big slob. Not a good feeling. So I decided to try the dress on today. I couldn't even zip the dress up all the way!! Yikes! This was a good thing and a bad thing. Bad because I felt even worse. Good because it has motivated me that much more.
So what size am I now?? A size 8! Not that a size 8 is anything to freak out over. However, I am not happy at a size 8. So the game is on! I know that I've gained a little weight over the years but when a woman starts to feel down on herself about it then it's time to take some action. When I met Larry I was 115lbs and I am now pushing 135lbs! Yikes! Now I know that I am probably breaking some kind of "woman's law" or something by telling you my weight but the way I see it is that if I say it out loud and to all of you who read my blog that it will drive me to work harder. I know that at some point you will see me and be able to tell if I am working at it or not. I need all the motivation I can get because I am not a fan of exercise.
So tomorrow I am starting the first day of my journey to be a size 6 again. Pasha and I are going to start working out together again. We usually run. I read somewhere that swimming is the fastest way to weight loss and that running was the second fastest way. Since I am not a swimmer I think I can handle running a few times a week.
Wish me luck!

Our Wildlife

We tend to have 2-3 squirrels in our front yard at a time. I was finally able to get a picture of one without scaring it away.
If only I could get a picture of that mangy looking orange and white cat that's been living in our backyard.

Alisha graduated from high school today!
Being there brought back memories from my high school graduation ten loooong years ago.
I do not miss those days...sad to say.
To be an awkward and hormonal teenage girl again...no thanks! LOL!
I am just fine being 30 thank you very much!

Congrats Alisha!!
