New Year, New Goals

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year. I have been slammed at work, but better to be slammed than no work at all. I apologize for the delay.

My Goals for 2010

1. Lose 50lbs. Yep you read that right. I go to a clinic for weight loss currently and over the past couple of months have dropped 15lbs and kept it off. Its the most wonderful feeling I can imagine. So in order to help me attain my goal and reach it...I will journal it here...so that those of you who actually read this can keep me accountable. I received a Wii for Christmas from my wonderful mother to help me out and from my very wonderful department at work they got me the Wii Fit Plus. On top of that my mother gave the Hubby and I some money for games that we both would use and my MIL gave us some gift cards to my favorite store...Amazon.com. So I have now gotten Wii Fit Plus, Jillian Michaels Ultimatum 2010 and EA Active More Workouts.

2. Save money for a downpayment on a vehicle and also towards a down payment on a new home.

3. Try to keep the house more organized and clean.

My list isn't long and I do that for a reason...if I lose focus because there is too much...then I'm more likely to fail. So I tend to keep it short and sweet.

I will post pictures, along with my journal of weightloss, so be forewarned...it may not be pretty.

Looking forward to a new start on a new year.

Oh and an update on my mother's health. She hasn't heard anything yet regarding her tests. She went last week and had an ultrasound done to check for gallstones. Now also, her twin brother, who does have colon cancer has to go to the doctor in a few days for a PET scan, to check a spot on his lungs, that could possibly be cancerous.

My wonderful brother-in-law, spent 5 years as active duty Air Force, is currently a contracted civilan working for the Air Force doing what he did while he was Active. He's also a Reservist now. We got to spend a wonderful Christmas with him and his wife, my sister-in-law, due to the fact he will be deploying in a few days.

Keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers.

So let's hope this year can be a blessing for all.
