Maybe it will work THIS time??

Well, had something sort of exciting happen last week. I got a treadmill! Guess what I paid for it?? Nada! Nothing! Zilch! Zero! Yay! I was checking out the local newspaper online looking through the help wanted ads. I don't ever look at the free ads but something told me I should look and I saw someone was offering a treadmill. I made my husband call it because I hate calling people, lol and he went and picked it up later that day! It's in fine working condition, the only part that doesn't work on it is the "calories burned" part but I don't really care about that. My husband and I have both been using it on a pretty regular basis. It's really motivated me to start getting in shape. I'm trying not to focus on getting "thin" just being healthier and getting my body into better shape. My biggest problem is still my eating. Today was a bad day.. but tomorrow is a new day. I'm just trying to cut back on carbs.. Not take them out of my diet completely just cut back on them as they are a big weakness with me and concentrate on eating healthier foods like fruits and veggies. I would really like to try doing a body cleanse but I just don't know if I could stick with it for 7-10 days especially when I have 3 kids that I would have to cook for. I would be alright if I didn't have to cook food but it is a lot more tempting when the food is in front of me. I'm trying to get my husband into eating better. He is complaining about getting heavier and how he has really been working hard on the treadmill but feels like he is getting bigger instead of smaller. He is doing good with the workouts but horrible with the eating. Still eating junk food and expecting the weight to fall off. I'm no angel but I'm trying to do better. I can't force him to eat better though, he has to do it himself.

Have a very busy month ahead of us. My birthday is Thursday, April 9. I'm not telling you my age though, I don't like getting older!!... Easter this weekend, with the in laws on Saturday then my family on Sunday. Next Thursday we will be leaving at around 3am heading for Tennessee! We are taking the dog with us so we will be staying at a hotel. Will be coming back on the 21st. I'm soo excited! We have so many fun things planned to do with the kids. I've never been there before but have heard how beautiful it is there. My sister in law moved there a few years ago. My husband has been bugging me to move there for awhile, so this is going to be my chance to see it and decide if I think I would like to make the move some day.

Then the first week of May we are moving! I talked my husband into taking that house in my hometown. Yayyy! I'm just so excited about everything coming up! My life is normally pretty boring so I have lots to look forward to.

Sooo.. obviously, you should be expecting a delay in posts for a little bit. I'm sure I will have lots of pics to share of my trip to TN. I will try to post when I can! Hope everyone has a good Easter!
