What it's all about...

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Yes....5 years after initially hitting my goal weight, I can say I'm within 10 pounds of that goal. I'd call that pretty good maintaining! I still stuggle. I'm currently in the mode of tightening the reins a bit and I had gained 20 pounds. But I am slowing inching my way back to goal. I exercise. Not as consistently as I'd like, but I'm still moving. And this is all the proof I need that all my efforts to be healthy is worth it:

Being a teacher, I love when my own children play school...but yesterday I found this note on my door. They were playing exercise class and I think that's AWESOME!!! We eat healthy. We move. We play. We smile. That's what it's all about.

This summer, we've managed to have tons of fun while moving. Bowling. Roller skating. Swimming. Ice skating. Miniature Golf. Baseball. Cheerleading. Hiking. Running. Walking. Moving is SO SO good. And fun! I hope you all are having fun while moving this summer!!!!!

A recent pic of my kiddos....cosmic bowling!!

    I love to see you blog!!!

    You have done fantastic keeping on track. You know you will get back to your goal weight.

    I gained 30 pounds last year and have yet to get back under control but Fall is rapidly approaching and I'm hoping to get my act together soon. The past stressful year and a half of losing my MIL took it's toll.

    I love to hear about your students commitment to exercise and your kids as well. You are a great teacher and a great mom. I can't believe how big your kids are getting. They are beautiful and full of joy!!
