Christmas Holiday

I love the Christmas season.  This year we are getting by but I feel blessed that I have my health and that I have a job that I really enjoy.

I took some pictures of some of my favorite decorations.  Here they are..I hope you enjoy them as much as I do everyday.

Weight loss progress

Well; I promised to keep this blog updated on my progress...I have been working out but not as much as I should.  I started to get into a routine, I am starting an fitness program through work and I know that a lot of people will be fibbing on their progress but I owe it to myself and the program to not.  I am going to lose the 30 pounds that I want.  I'm going to promise to run some more 5k's this summer. I don't care if I'm last...I'm going to do it.  I eventually want to run a half-marathon and also a marathon but I am willing to take it one step at a time.

I've got a lot of things that I want to do.  I'm thinking I'm going to start my own bucket list.  Even if I don't get to do them all.....I will at least have them on the list to hopefully get done.

I will update you on all my measurements later.  Right now I'm going to relax and finish some Christmas presents.  I enjoyed my workout that I did.  Also; I'm going to leave you with this cucumber recipe.  I found it on pinterest...Yes; I am addicted.
she got it from Simple and Delicious magazine
