So, today is the first day of the rest of my life.

Or so my husband told me this morning as I got out of the car to go to work.

For some reason, it has stuck with me all day.  He is so right.  I can change the ending to my story any time I want.  It’s my story after all.

The first thing I want to change is the lack of writing in my life.  This blog got me through that whole first year of us losing weight.  It has, truly, seen me through some tough times.  Why did I stop?  I have no idea.  I want to say that I don’t have the time, but that just isn’t true.  If I have time to binge watch <insert Netflix show here> on a regular basis then I have a few minutes to update the blog.

Lots of things have happened in the past few months since I posted.  Nothing like a bullet list to bring you up to speed:

  • Tore meniscus
  • Did 6 weeks of PT
  • Did not get to run the Half-marathon
  • Went to Chicago with some great friends
  • Started running again…slowly
  • Went to my first bridal shower
  • Completely lost my mind and regained it (IVF related)
  • Fell off the bandwagon and am back over 200 (barely)

So, that’s pretty much where we are now.

I plan on discussing a few things in more lengthy posts in the future, but for now – that’s the breakdown.

I’m trying a new life tactic called “Focusing on the Positive” so I’m not really going to address the less than stellar moments listed above.  For now, I’m just going to post a bunch of pictures from the past two months that make me smile.

Perhaps I’ll be ready to tackle more tomorrow, but for today I just want to be excited about clicking “Publish.”

This makes me smile for two reasons.  1) It's just hilarious.  2) It makes me feel super skinny.
