But We Start And End With Family!

Enough is Enough!!!

So...for those of you who know me...know that I have struggled with my weight for most of my life...I have decided that enough is enough!! We, as a family, have decided that we were going to start living healthier. We got a membership at the YMCA and have started working out. We have a new routine in the house....we get up and get ready for the day when Eric gets up to go to work (6:45ish) and Hailey and Cayson get dropped off at school for breakfast. Jaxson and Deni eat a PBJ sandwich on the way to the Y and then get dropped off in their child-watch area (free 2 hours of babysitting a day when you join). I have tried a handful of group classes there and definately have my favorites (and my not-so-favorites) but in the 2 weeks since I have started....wait for it....wait for it.................I'm down 11 pounds!!! WOO HOO!!!! Each day the scale tells me I'm just a little bit lighter, makes me feel like I've climbed Mt Everest! My goal is another 40 pounds by July...we shall see if I can surpass that goal...but for now, each pound gone (and I say gone..not lost...because I don't want to find it again)but each pound gone is a motivation to keep going....I'll keep you updated as I continue on this journey! Until next time..........

Come on Over...if you dare!!!

Well, last week it was the stomach flu...and now it seems that strep throat has invaded the Brewer household...and what an adventure it has been....I always thought that having the kids sick all at the same time would be the way to go....boy, was I wrong!!! Hailey and Jaxson had the stomach flu on the same day...thank goodness for multiple bathrooms!! Then Jaxson and Deni had strep at the same time and then Hailey came down with it the next day...not an experience I would like to have again! I think we are on the mend (knock on wood). The next hurdle is Eric having his wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow (3 of them)....Forget Calgon...Ben & Jerry--take me away!! And please forgive me if I have been grouchy to you...it has been a few nights of restless sleep (and some nights of no sleep)....things are starting to get back to normal (well, normal for the Brewer house)...I'll be nicer-I promise! Until next time............
