Where I've Been & Where I'm Going

I've been off doing all sorts of soul searching these past few weeks deciding what I want to do with my life over the next few years. One big thing I've decided to do is get myself into shape.

I'm not overweight, but I'm out of shape and unhappy with the way I look. Violet's first birthday is coming up so I don't feel like I can use the "I just had a baby" excuse anymore. I started working out on Monday and I love it so far. I wanted to track my progress so here we go:

I'm currently 140lbs.
35" - Bust
31.5" - Waist
41.5" - Hips
23.5" - Thighs
10.5" - Arms

I also took some before photos, but I'm going to save those until I'm at my target size. I don't really have a target weight; I just want to be happy with my body and I'm so willing to work for it. I'm doing the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, some jogging and crunches. I'm throwing in the jogging and crunches daily just because I like to push myself a little further and I want to track my growth through how much longer I can jog and how many more crunches I can do. 

I have other news about upcoming changes, but I'm ironing out some details before sharing. :)

Sadly the daffodils have already all wilted away in our part of the country, but I was able to capture a few daffodilly (totally a word!) photos a few weeks ago. I looked all over for some daffodils that weren't in someone's yard and I managed to find some blooming outside a broken down house on the edge of town.

I had to basically force them to pose together. This was as close as I could get to smiles, which quickly dissolved into this...

I cannot look at this photo without laughing. Oliver's face KILLS ME. KILLS!

Tuesday Tunes

This week's tune is brought to us by the lovely Rural Alberta Advantage. I'm pretty sure I featured another one of their songs in the past, but I just simply adore them. This song is a great post-break up song. Enjoy!

Project 365

Another catch-up post of my Project 365 photos. I've been sticking with this, huzzah! Now I just need to start posting my photos again every Sunday. 

Paint Hands!

Water Baby!

Just a little post bath crazy people time!

Amelia on picture day at her preschool. This makes me laugh every time.

Violet looks so confused!

An excellent eye roll, if you ask me.

Our windowsill garden. We're growing daisies and sunflowers.
