Unhappy about the "happy weight"

After reading the post from Lisa over at High Heels and Sweatshirts I'm motivated to get on the fit train. I knew I had put on a few pounds but yesterday morning when I got on the scale YIKES! it was more than I had suspected. Lisa referred to it as "happy weight" get married, you're happy, you eat more, more of the wrong types of things and then before you know it 15 pounds of "happy" has been added to your body.

So, I'm motivated to lose this weight in the next couple of months and get back to my "bride" body. I've also been running for the last couple of months getting ready to run my first 5k this spring. My goal is to make running part of my long term fitness routine and not to only exercise when I want to lose weight.

Thanks Lisa for the jumpstart I needed..seeing your positive results and seeing that you did it the healthy way has made me motivated to change my eating habits and jump on the fit train.

Goodbye my friend.....

It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that we had to say goodbye to Abby this past weekend. She was a great friend and her unconditional love will be missed each and everyday. Abby lived a very long life (over 14 years) and she was healthy, for the most part, up until the end. Abby we love you and will miss you more than words can say.

It's hard for me to believe how much my life has changed in the 14 years that she's been alive. I always wondered what she was thinking. I'm happy she got to live the last year of her life as a family dog and all of the love that brings, even if that means she had to get her picture taken with a sticker on her nose.
