365 photo project: week 1

January is going great so far…  it’s suppose to warm up this week which is great to melt a lot of this ice. I miss walking outdoors!  Playing with the rescue dogs inside helps… there are so many great ones right now. If you’re into black. Which we are.  JJ was here this weekend finishing […]

new bling

in 2009 I lost my wedding ring. I was heartbroken… I never liked doing dishes, sleeping, or showering with jewelry on so I always removed my wedding ring and got in the bad habit of setting it in a different place every time. Same story for Ryan…. his golf glove fits better without his ring. […]

Sophia - I LOVE your new ring!!!

Megan - Awe, cute pic! Love the ring. I am so scared of losing mine too so I always put it in the little ring box whenever I take it off and I don’t move the box!

squirrel gazing

we have to keep the curtains closed nearly all the time because they are so old and inefficient. WAY too cold with them open. So until we replace our monster window in the living room, Tyson must  peak through.

Happy New Year

I am the new year. I am an unspoiled page in your book of time. I am your next chance at the art of living. I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last 12 months. All you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you […]

Becky S. - Thank you so much for sharing! I am in the same boat. I lost 24 lbs last year, but I’ve gained about 12 of that back recently. Mainly because I stopped using My Fitness Pal. Its amazing how much that made a difference! Thank you for your honesty!

stacy - Becky… good for you! I’m proud of you : ) and don’t feel discouraged….we all have setbacks. tomorrow is a new day. hop right back on the healthy eating and my fitness pal. you know you can do it! its never too late to begin again.

happy new year!

Sophia - You’re amazing! I really need some motivation and encouragement. I want to lose about 20 also. :( I love food too much!

January 4, 2013 - 2:14 am

Megan - Thank you for sharing!! And so eloquently told, I love it. I’m on my own journey to health too so this helped. You are just gorgeous Stacy!

stacy - Megan… good for you and thank you so much *blush* :)

Rebecca R. - Awesome story!! Super creepy thing is that I’m exactly (I mean ex-act-ly) like you in April! Seeing your before and after photos are so helpful! Your before photo looks way better than what I see when I see myself at that weight! And after losing 20lbs… holy buckets! It’s crazy what a difference it can make. The goal of losing 20lbs is way more realistic to me after seeing and hearing what you were able to do! Thank you for the inspiration!
Did you only eat better and walk? Heck I would much rather do that! I’ve been going to the gym 3 days a week for the past 2 months and keep going going up and down 5lbs. Frustrating!
Also another reason to add to my list of “Why Rebecca NEEDS a Smartphone”…. My Fitness Pal app! :)

our 2012 holiday cards

we’ve sent out a holiday card every year since we’ve been married …and always one with a photo on it for the obvious reasons. : ) every year the list got longer on who we sent to. it took forever! Ryan’s not too into helping with this annual Christmas project, and he nixed my idea […]
