I know... I know... that title sucks.  Sorry!  I am just not being very creative at the moment.  I started doing the P90X3 program almost 3 weeks ago.  It may only be 30 mins, but wow, it is a GREAT workout.  But I digress.... I have been struggling with my weight for the last few years, pretty much since I had kids.  Although my struggles did begin a little before that.  Anyway, my goal is to lose the 50, or so, lbs that have crept up on me since I pretty much got married.

I will not post pics right now, b/c I am just not that confident yet.  I think in my mind that my body is a size that it isn't, or doesn't appear to be in pictures.  And no, I do not have issues with food.  I eat fairly healthy, and indulge every once in a while.  I think it is just genes and getting older.

I am not only doing the P90X3 program but also doing the couch to 10K program.  I am running a 5K with a friend of mine in April, but I've been wanting to up my game and go for a 10K in 2014.  YIKES!  I said that out loud.  I also dream of doing the Disney Princess 10K.  I don't know if I have the mental focus to run a half marathon.  LOL  I can go for 30-45 mins right now, but not much longer.  And no, I am not at the point of running the whole time.  But each week I am getting better.

Anyway, I am going to update you all every so often of my progress.  I will post some stats, mostly lbs lost and inches lost.  And maybe, just maybe when I get where I am going or I get closer to my goal, I may post my transformation pictures.  :)  Until then...  you'll just have to look at my pretty picture in the upper right hand corner of this blog.

Happy New Year!

Okay, so it's almost the end of February, and I've been MIA.  Some big changes are coming to our household.  First off, hubby got his orders....  Drum roll please.... He's headed off to Washington, DC.  I am taking the kids & moving to my parents' house.  Before all the questions start, yes, we are fine... Hubby's new job will be long days, with long commutes & crazy hours & lots of international travel.  We made the decision together that it would be best for me & the kids to stay with my parents.  Not only will I not be a "single" mother, but we will be closer to my in-laws as well.  So, everyone wins out.  Well, sort of...  I'm not saying it will be easy, because I know it won't.  But for our family it is best.

Okay...  So the fun part, we will be living in Florida & will be able to head to my parents' summer house in MI this summer to hang with my sister & her family.  And we'll be in Florida...  Do I hear Disney calling my name?  I think so.  :) LOL Plus, I still have a lot of friends in FL from college & a few from high school.

Anyway, with the Super Bowl being this weekend...  We decided to host a party.  And I am hosting a few specials (as seen on my fanpage... ). Here they are...

I have also started a new company.  Still have Mary Kay & Jewelry in Candles, although I am not promoting JIC too heavily...  I am also a Distributor for Spirit Lockets.  You can visit my website,  You can order from there, or directly through me.  Just shoot me an email ( and let me know what you are interested in.
