Progress...

In 12 days, i've lost 6.8 lbs...which is pretty good. Sean and I joined a local gym, and went for the frist time last night. We are going again tomorrow morning before work...so around 5:30am...that should be interesting. We already eat healthy, but i've increased my water intake and by going to the gym, we 've incorporated excerise...something I never get now! 35lbs to go!!!

Haven't scrapped in ages, but I did just purchase some stamps from a couple of friends, so i'm patiently waiting for them to arrive...and I think i'm going to start making more cards. Maybe try selling them...who knows...

A little over a week and we're off camping again for another long weekend! It'll be fun, would be nice if we'd get a few days of warm weather though. Hard to believe July is just about over already.

Have a great evening..i'm off to bed soon...so I can get up early to excerise!

Night all!

It's Time

to get fit that is. Sean and I joined a local gym last night. I'm so pumped about it. Ever since he got hurt, our excercise level has dropped considerable. For him it makes sense...but for me...not so much. I have just spent most of the last 9 months sitting in a chair next to him which doesn't keep the pudge off. I also wasn't drinking near enough water but i've since changed that. Now we just have to find the right time to go to the gym...we are thinking of getting up at 5am.. and going before I go to work in the mornings...which might just work out great. It's a Snap 24/7 fitness club so we can go any time we want! Since making a change for the better last Friday, i've already lost 3.8 lbs!!!

Sean is being sent for another MRI then possibly a surgery consult. Basically our doctor wants to rule out any possibility of surgery to ease the pain Sean is still having with his back. We don't think surgery is a posibility but want it ruled out. If that's the case, it'll be a matter of pain management and excersice to keep his muscles strong. We are hoping the gym will help with that also!

Have a great day...i'm off to work!

What's Up????????

Enjoying summer yet? The weather hasn't been that great but hey..it's not snowing, so it's all good in my world :)

Went for another pedicure Friday...but a different person this time and she was soooo much better....so i'll be continuing with her. I can't believe I was over 40 when I went for my first one...what was I thinking!

Still haven't scrapped. I check my scrap sites daily...and see lots and lots of challenges but I just don't wonder down to my scrap space. It's in the basement and we just don't spend any time down there. Hopefully that'll change soon.

A girl I know opened her own online stamp store selling Magnolia stamps. If you are a stamper at all, you'll love these. Her prices are amazing compared to US sites...check it out here

We've went camping on July 1st and are heading off again on July 31st. We go with 5 other families and it's so much fun!! It's great to finally get some use out of our trailer too. We'd love to upgrade to a 5th wheel, but we need a truck first...so it won't be happening any time soon. Although Sean did mention instead of upgrading our trailer, we'd just buy a cottage.

Sean and I have also talked about ....moving to a condo someday. It's not something we ever really considered but since he hurt himself, he just can't do the outdoor upkeep like he used to. He can't really ride the lawnmower anymore...so Reece cuts most of the grass. It's just too hard on his back. Of course it wouldn't happen anyway for at least 6 years, when Reece is done high school, and it's just a discussion. We are still hoping for his injury to heal further...but we are discussing all options. Who knows....

Big Brother is on in an hour....if you don't watch..you should :) I'd love to be on this show as a hosue guest!!

Have a great night
