AS IF!!!

Made a trip to my home town yesterday with my two boys. It was a great drive!! Very uneventful, which is good when you are driving with two kids for 6 hours!! THEN with about 3 minutes to go to get to my parents house I was pulled over. I had an expired licence.
So, he must have just been watching cars go by and plugging in licence plates. Mine was registered to me and I had an expired licence... So, my licence was seized and I couldn't do anything until this morning because all of the registry offices were closed. I was seriously 7 houses away from my parents house... I was tempted to call my Mom and have her come and get the boys but decided to just wait it out... The officer said that he really wasn't supposed to let me drive it but he said he would let me drive the rest of the way but he was going to follow me.. sigh
Nothing like a police chaperone to your parents house

Before and after


So this was me in the summer. July 30th to be exact. I was forced to take these pictures by a friend of mine who is a personal trainer back home. I did not want to do it. Let alone did I want to show anyone. I think for real, I didn't want to see the reality. Cause I was the only one who didn't know what I looked like.

It started me on a journey of changing my diet habits and my activities. You may not know it but I was relatively active here. I needed to change a lot about what I ate. I knew what to do.. But it was so easy to do nothing.

I remember the moment when I thought.. This isn't me.. I was back home and in the middle of a workout with my personal trainer friend. We were working out side by side and I saw him in the mirror beside me and I saw how perfect his posture was and then I saw me.. even though I was standing up straight I looked sloppy and sad. I said to myself this has got to change.


This was taken today. I am happy to say that this is the last time I will be wearing this swimming suit.. it is way too big.. There is a 35 lbs difference between the two sets of pictures.
I still have about 5 lbs I would like to lose and do some more muscle work but for the most part I am quite happy that my hard work is showing.

vent @ blogspot....

If I didn't know better, I would say I am PMSing!!! I'm not however so my feelings are genuine unhormonal induced feelings!!!
Tav had his 5th birthday last week YAAAAAY!!! he is growing in to such a sweet, compassionate little boy.. What makes me so angry is that the only member that acknowledged his birthday with a card ( there was money in it too) was the 3rd husband of hubby's paternal Grandmother... he sent Tavish a card on behalf of her. Her health if failing unfortunately and probably wouldn't know what a birthday is!!!
I think it is totally unacceptable. I have politely mentioned the passing of the birthday to members and they have pretty much just replied.. " Oh yeah".. grrrr.... so mad....
