What's next?

I can say with 100% certainty that I am overwhelmed by the support and encouragement that I have received from friends and family over the last several months.  I was not really sure what I was opening myself up to when I decided to reveal this blog and what I was up to with the weight loss.  I sure must be doing something right to have all of these amazing people in my life.  I am so grateful and it makes this journey so worth it - to be able to share it with all of you is such a blessing. 

I have been thinking hard the last couple of weeks about ways that I can make an even bigger impact with this blog.  I am not looking to change lives here but I know that I have gained so much inspiration from other bloggers that I read and have wondered if there is more that I can do. 

To this point, I have really just updated once a week about my weigh in and anything else that happens to be going on.  I am considering adding a couple of more days a week to my updating.  It is much harder than I thought it would be to come up with topics that you think people will actually find interesting.  I also want to be sure that I use my time wisely and that the topics are of value as well.  With two small children at home I don't have a lot of time to craft a lot of amazing posts - but I am going to give it a shot. 

So, if there is anything that you are interested in reading about - whether it be related to weight loss, nutrition, exercise, kids, whatever - let me know and I will see what I can come up with.  I want this blog to have a clear direction - it started as a place for me to chronicle my days with the girls - but obviously those days were so full that I didn't make the time to get here and have done more of my chronicling with photos.  If we are friends on FB you know what I mean - I take a lot of pictures - but I really want to have those around for the girls so that years from now they can see what we did when they were young - and pictures tell the story much better than I ever could! 

I have been experimenting in the kitchen as well - so who knows maybe I will throw in a recipe here and there.  Speaking of that - last night I tried the new Morningstar Farms Lasagna - all I can say is YUMMM!  It was so good - they use the veggie sausage style crumbles and the flavor was so good.  Normally when I have something that was cooked in the microwave for 5 minutes (ala Smart Ones) my expectations are not real high.  I was pleasantly surprised and will be venturing back to Target today because they were on sale for $3!!!!! 

One last note: I purchased a 30 day unlimited pass today for $20 for a boot camp class at BCOR that is in EP, New Hope and Eagan - the retail value is $139 - such an awesome deal - check it out here -  - and if you do not already receive emails from Living Social you should really sign up!

I am working on what comes next and will continue on my journey!  I am so happy and blessed to be able to bring you all with me! 

Be well!
