The End of The Quest

Well now that it is the end of the quest, I am ready to talk about my great success! I am so passionate about my quest because I proved to myself that not only could I do it, but that I could enjoy losing weight and feeling better in the process. Altogethter I have lost about 10 pounds! I am so excited. I think that I could have lost more but I had some slip ups! lol! I have learned to eat healthier, and cook healthier recipes! I have more engergy and enjoy doing things with the family! I do not just sit on the coach now when I am off work. I enjoy being up and around. I want to be active. I wake up in the morning feeling healthy and refreshed! I think that if I had to do anything different with my quest I would have just started earlier. I am satisfied with my results!

So yesterday I got off work around 1:45! Love getting off once a week early! It is the best. I was able to get my running done and my work out done before going home and relaxing. It was nice because when I got home the house was clean. Junior cleaned the house for me so that I would not have to deal with it. Ahhhhh! How nice. It was a good surprise! I love when he cleans the house. He knows to be on my good side, just to clean! lol! This week has gone by so fast! I can't even believe it!

I just wanted to blog about my evening. I came home from work tonight and I was so tired! I had along day at work.... and I have been studying for my Business Law test. I am soooooooo ready for the weekend! So after studying for about 1 1/2 I decided, that I wanted to go tanning! See I use to be so tan al the time when I was a lifeguard and loved tanning. Obviously when I found out that I was pregnant I could not go tanning. I have tanned a couple of times since my son has been born but never constant the way that I use to. He is now 2 years old! lol! With my busy life and all I just never made the time for it. And to be honost I never felt good enough to go after he was born. But I am feeling so good now. I feel that everything that I am doing is making such a change is my confidence! My fiance made a comment to me tonight that prompted this blog. He says "hey babe, I just wanted to tell you that you look great! I think that you have a different attitude now!" I just left it at that. I did not want to examin into it to much. I tend to examin things! But I guess I did not realize that feeling better about myslef would chnage my whole attitude. I am just excited and wanted to share this with anyone willing to listen. I am so excited that I am getting "Heather" back! The summer is coming up and I am bound and determined to feel good in a swim suite. I am not going to be in a two peice, but I am still going to look good and feel good! lol! :) And I am going to have a tan ahead of time!

Thanks for listening!
I hate the rain. Seriously. It just makes me sick. I would rather deal with snow than rain. I think that I just feel like complaining! lol! I can not wait until the weather gets nicer again. I just feel like the rain always puts a damper on my mood. I feel grumpy and sensitive! It is crazy how the weather can have an effect on people. Last night I made a really good honduran meal. It is plantines fried with beans and you eat it with the sausage called chariso. It is so good! My son goes crazy for plantines! They are similar to bananas but much sweeter when they are fried! MMMM!!!! I am ready for luch if you cannot tell! lol! Tonight I am going to go home and study for my Business Law test that I have to take tomorrow. Ahhhh! Crazy schedule!

One Day At A Time!

I had such a good weekend! I spent so much time with my son. My fiance and I joke around because our son goes back and fourth between being a mommas boy and daddy's boy! For now, I am Javoni's favorite! Our pediatriction says that when there are both parents in the home that it is normal to go back and fourth with favorites! lol! Everything is "momma"! In fact today was really hard on me when I had to drop him off at day care :( I have been missing him like crazy. We were outside the whole weekend. I could not keep Javoni in the house! He kept asking to go out. I loved being outside with him. In the past before working out and getting more active, I would just be to tired and stayed in the house. Now, I enjoy running and playing with Javoni. He is so cute and his face is so lite up when I am outside running with him. I can notice a difference with our relationship because I am spending more time with him and playing more with him. I have the energy to do all this now. At the end of the day, it is that little face that he makes to let me know that he is having such a good time with me that keeps me going!
On Sunday I went downtown to the YMCA with my friend Maria and we are signed up for yoga. OH MY GOD! It is the most relaxing thing EVER! I am in the beginners class, and we are learning breathing techniques and how to relax. I am so excited about this becuase I notice that I have some extra "Stress" in my life. I think that this class is going to teach me relaxation. I am just altogether so proud that I have accomplished these things in my life. I mean, now I am trying to find ways to make my busy life easier to deal with and be happier. I was up to size 16 in pants and I am now fitting into a size 14. I know that it is not much, but for me it is about being a size healthier!

I have another recipe: 6 healthy pasta recipes!

Just thinking out loud!~

I just wanted to blog about my family night. So my mom came over last night and we had such a good time. We went to Subway for dinner! I am so in love with the $5 foot long! I get the footlong and then eat the 6" and took the rest to work today for luch! How great! And you don't feel guilty eating it at all. I always feel horrible whenver I would eat McDonalds because I knew how horrible it was for me. After we ate dinner we just played with my son and talked and laughed about the silly things that he is doing. So out of no where I aksed him why he was doing something, I can't even remember what he was doing, but he says "just because"! WHAT! He is going to be 2 years old April 10th and talking like a little man! I just can't believe how fast kids learn things! lol! And the other day I asked him if I could see his knew toy that we got him and he tells me "not right now momma"! Like seriously! I know that I tell him that all the time though, so I can see where he got that from. I am always saying "not right now"! But "just because"! I know that I am just going on about Javoni, but he is my life and reason for living. He is what has made me realize taht I needed to change my habbits with food and my weight. I am not a really big girl by no means, but I did put on some extra pounds after child birth, and I just want Javoni to see that mommy is wating healthy the way that I am teaching him. I want to be able to keep up with his energy level, lord knows that he is not slowing down by no means! lol!

Thanks to those who listen! :)

My son is also feeling better which makes life so much easier! I am also happy that I did not go out last night because I woke up feeling refreshed and healthy, more than I can say about half of my co- workers! lol! :) I feel GREAT! Tongiht is family night and I am so excited to hang out with my family. We are probably just going to cook dinner and talk about our week since the last family night!
