We're Moving!

It's so hard for me to believe or to write this, but we are moving.  We aren't just moving to another home, but to another town.  A town that is about 6 to 7 hours away!  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine leaving.  We've been praying for months for an open door.  A door that would allow us to be removed from some situations we were in, a door that would allow me to return to school, and a door that would allow Joey to have a job where he is under much less stress. 

Around Christmas an opportunity came available and after much discussion between Joey and I and also with our family we decided to step out in faith and trust God.  Joey spent a week there to check things out and came home knowing without a doubt that this was what we were supposed to do. 

But as you know, with opportunity comes challenge.  We decided for Joey to go ahead and move down, and as soon as school was out and the house sold that the kids and I would follow.  He left last week and we are now going on our second week without him.  We did get a brief visit from him Friday night.  He came up to pick up Bre.  After much discussion we decided it would be best for Bre to go ahead and move with him.  She experienced so many challenges in the high school she attends.  We wanted her to go ahead and get started in her new school where she could pursue all the things she loves without others causing her to fail.  She's so excited to get there and make new friends.

The hard part begins now.  The last time our family was seperated was when Colt was in the hospital for long periods.  Joey and I have never been apart, and I know he's going to have a really hard time being away from the little ones.  Hopefully we'll get some devine intervention and the kids and I can get there sooner. 

This is going to be a great adventure!  More details to come! So stay tuned!

2013 Goals

I've never been really in to the whole making resolutions thing.  For one, I never follow through.  This year I have set some goals for myself.  Last year I finally got busy and lost the baby weight that has been lingering with me since I delivered Bre.  For years I never ate healthy or exercised regularly.  I would gain and lose and gain and lose.  I lost a lot of weight after losing Colt, but that wasn't due to eating healthy or exercise.  That was due to not eating, depression, and all that comes with it.  I had a friend who recently referred to it as the death diet and sadly it's true.  After having Luci I was stuck at a weight of 150 to 155.  I started exercising last year and eating cleaner and I'm now sitting at a weight of 123.  What got me there was first and foremost the encouragement of my friends and workout buddies.  I drink shakeology, do turbo fire, and have taken up a love for running.  Running is my therapy.  I can put those headphones in and go.  It clears my head and I feel great afterwards! 

So, back to the goals..... here's a list of a few things I hope to accomplish this year!

1.  Go back to school.  I want to further my nursing degree. :)
2.  Run a half marathon. (I can't wait to run this in Disney!)
3.  I've slacked on my diet the past couple of months so I want to get back to eating cleaner.
4.  Cook more! 
5.  Tone up more.  Looking into doing a little crossfit after school activities slow down.
6.  Lose 5 more pounds.

So there they are!  I have a lot of work to do!

Happy 2013!
