My Goal

So I look at this picture and I see myself as the thinnest I've been in a while (plus I see Griffen who looks like he's constipated! :-)) I remember when we took this pic I told myself that it was the camera angle that made me look thinnner but looking back now, I really was thinner....Anyways, this was February 2010. Daily I'm realizing that I want to be a good example for Griffen and our future children. Even in the things that seem trivial, which includes the way I eat. I want to live a healthy life for our kids and to be an example for them. So begins my lifestyle change. My goal, especially before we start trying for baby #3 is to change some of my eating habits. This starts with no Dr. Pepper. I know, it will be a sad life with out my morning DP but it would be a sadder life to be too overweight to enjoy my kids fully. Another is to cut back on sugar and white flour. This is coming from the girl who was lovingly nicknamed "Burrito Belly" from my family as a child. The nickname wasn't because I was fat but because I LOVE tortillas. Not the healthy wheat or corn ones but the good homemade flour tortillas. :-) Lastly, I want to workout at least 30 minutes a day. I know that chasing around a 15 month old is not considered working out but doing something daily that really gets my heart going.....As we go into the journey towards another pregnancy (no, we're not pregnant!) in God's timing, I want to be as healthy as I can be. So I'm documenting on here that my goal is to lose 25-30 pounds. I'm very aware that that is a lot of weight but any progress is still progress. Just wanted to document this so that if you're a good friend, I give you permission to ask how my goals are going! :-)


  1. Chasing kiddos IS a workout--but I am super excited to see your progress, you'll do great! Hopefully we'll see you soon (walking at Bear Creek!!) Much Love, Amanda (hopetrifecta.blogspot.com)

  2. Totally agree with Amanda! It IS a workout chasing those kiddos! You look fab, but I am excited for you!
