A Healthy New Year...

Well, at least a healthier 5 months. : ) 
I'm not pregnant right now, and usually I would sulk about it, but this time I decided that I'm going to pick myself up and try to actually loose weight. I'm going to start today. I'm actually waiting for my scale that I ordered on, but I just can't wait any longer.
Let me give you the back story. I absolutely love my husband, but ever since we got married I've been eating my own cooking ; ) And let me tell you, I'm one Heck of a cook. So ever since we've been married, I've started to slowly pack on the pounds. Well, I am now the heaviest I've been in my life because I don't have the Jex-genes and I stay skinny most of my life. I've become the stay-at-home wife, who really wants to be the stay-at-home mom, you know. So, because I no longer lead that busier lifestyle (I love my lifestyle, but it's not busy--that's a fact) I've put on a lot of belly weight that I just don't want. 
Starting today I'm going to change that fact! I'm going to take control of my life and of my health. Now obviously I don't know my weight at the present because I haven't gotten my scale in yet. I figure that before I start blogging about my weight, I should give myself a few extra days, and that's what I am doing. I'm giving myself cushion time to get down just a touch before I start really blogging about this. But this is my goal, to own up to what I'm doing with my body and get it smokin' hot by the time that my hubby comes back with a smokin' hot bod of his own. : ) 
My plan of attack is to weigh in every Friday no matter where I am whether I'm traveling or I'm at home, I will weigh in after my week of exercise and such. Now since I have a limited time till I get to see him again, I was looking up weight-loss boost secrets, and of course the acai berry supplement has come up. Keep in mind that I don't do this irrationally and I studied it quite a lot. Lots and lots of research brought me to the conclusion that this is what I want to do. There are many ways to do this, one suggested taking a healthy acai supplement in conjunction with coffee. I don't drink coffee. It's a religious thing and I don't think that I would feel comfortable even doing it for weight loss, because who'd say that it would stop there. So, I figured that I needed the Lord on my side in this battle and I decided to go with a colon cleansing pill instead. Not just any pill, a well tested and researched pill. I will start that tomorrow. For today I'm going to start my exercise program to get my body used to doing this. You decide what you can do. Don't hurt yourself or make  yourself healthy by doing unhealthy techniques. 
OK, the gauntlet has been tossed and my challenge starts today! Wish me luck and check back in next week to see how I did this week. : )

The Power of Knowledge

I totally started following a new blog, at least new to me, and they have tons of super cute helpful ideas. This is the blog, and they recently found an AMAZING website that makes custom creations. They take any text that you want and make it into any shape that you want. It's fabulous! I got the idea of doing my blog from her, but I couldn't resist I wanted to see what I made ; ) Anyways, here's my blog creation.

If you couldn't tell already the website is, and the biggest plus of all is that it's free! Wow, how awesome! So go check it out and russel up some creations of your own : )

My Military Man

On Tuesday last week I got the wonderful duty of dropping Jamie off for Basic Training. It was hard, I admit, but I know that this is a good thing. I am so proud of my man! He got to call me on Friday and tell me that he's made it out of receiving and onto basic training. I am so proud of him and I know that he's doing a great job.

Now all I have to do is wait for his first letter so I know the address. :)
