Well on my way....

to my goal weight. I am currently 148. I started at 172. I lost 10 then sat at 162 for quite awhile until I started WW recently. It's a slow loss, but it's going away. My GW is 130.

Here I was (in Port Angeles WA on the way back from Forks!)

And here I am now (on the right. The left is my beautiful cousin!)

It's not the easiest thing I've done. It takes work, but looking at these two pictures makes me realize how worth it is is! <3 I cannot wait to cross this one off of my list!

Date Night #1

I had our first date night that can count to the 33 total I want to have over the course of the next 1001 days. (More than 33 would be great, but thats a minimum!)

The reason this is on my list is because while I know my husband and I have a wonderful relationship, I feel we have lost a bit of "us" because our focus is on Peyton and not each other. It's nice to have nights and refocus on us.

We went out with our friends Jody and Travis and had dinner and drinks at The Trainwreck. Great food, one too many shots, and great friends. Date night number one was a total success!

I also have 14 days down in Project 365 and my Wreck This Journal finally came in the mail yesterday. :)

#1.. almost!

I completed a 10k this morning. It felt amazing. My time was not the best. I had to walk some (hence why I don't get to cross it off.. yet!)

That was such a huge feat for me. I was so nervous about it. After the first 2 miles I thought there was absolutely no way I could possibly go another 4.2 miles. But I did. I am so very proud of myself. This is the first of many 10ks (5k's, half marathons.. marathons???) to come hopefully!

Maybe with the next 10k I will be able to mark this off. I'm off to go find the next one to register for right now!

Getting Started

I have yet to check an item off! I feel like a slacker. But I do have 999 more days.

I did get some things started today.

Here is my Project 365. My official start date on that is also Sept 15th, but I didn't get the posts up until today. I figure as long as I post for every day (whether it's that day or not) I'll still count it. I will try to not get more than 3 days behind. What matters most is that I am using my camera daily.

I also ordered my Wreck This Journal from Amazon. I can't wait for it to get here and dig into it. It looks like a lot of fun and maybe even a good stress reliever.

I'm hoping over the weekend to do an organization project so that I can have that awesome feeling of crossing off one of my tasks.

Tomorrow is the Day!

I am a Mom. A wife. A daughter. A friend. An employee. 

Somewhere along the line I've started to loose site of who I am beyond than those things. I need to do something to focus on improving and caring for myself. A friend of mine told me about this and it sounded fantastic. She sparked the interest in a few of us and we can hopefully all complete this journey together.

My list contains things I've been meaning to do and have put off. Things I hope to accomplish. Things I am scared to do. Things that will make me push myself. Things that I will have fun doing. 

Every one of these things will improve my life.

Tomorrow is the day I have chosen to start this 1001 days. I am anxious and excited and even a tad bit nervous. 

Here goes nothing!
