Well, this is my first attempt to blog. So here goes. Last week Sept.8th hubby and I got back from our vacation to Illinois. We discovered, upon talking that this was the first vacation we had been on by ourselves in the 35 years we had been married. Before we had taken kids or went with friends. We actually had a blast together!! l LOL emoticon We went to Illinois to dig geods. We came home with five 5 gallon buckets of them! Now we just have to find the tools to break them open. LOL emoticon

Anyway...we decided (while we were away, and could visit uninterrupted by grandkids), that when we got home we were going to begin our journey to health and weight loss. I was so excited! It is so much easier losing weight when both of us are working together. This is not the first time we have done this, but every time we end up gaining the weight back. This time we have got to get it straight in our heads that this is a lifestyle change not a diet. Those of you who believe in the power of prayer please pray for us. I believe through this journey we have begun that God will be glorified!

That is one of the reasons that I want to lose weight . I want to feel better so that God can use me even more. Also please pray for hubby and I as we work to get out of debt. We are taking baby steps (like Dave Ramsey says) but boy...does it take discipline! Just like losing weight.

Well this is the end of my second week and I have lost 2 lbs. That was my goal ! emoticon I did cardio three times in this 2 weeks. My goal is cardio 3-4 times a week. I'll get there. It sure is hard to make time for yourself, after 35 years of putting my spouse and children first.

Well I have rattled on and made this blog way to long..so I will say bye for now. emoticon
