SHIP SHAPE! Long time-no see!

Hello!!!  So...there are many things in life that I succeed and fail at.  My hobbies and interests ebb and flow.  Apparently blogging is one of those things as it's been a while.  I was looking for a post of mine to refer a friend to and I noticed I had 145 page views last!  Since I haven't posted in several months, it kinda makes me feel good to know that my stuff is still worth stumbling upon.  I noticed that I also had a couple of my pins re-pinned-that makes a girl smile :D

So what has this diy-couponing-crafty gal been up to?  A lot of this and that with life.  Lots of work, husband's in his 2nd and last year in school, and since I posted last time, several months and pounds have melted away.  July 27th of this year I talked to my brother and he motivated me to work on my health.  It wasn't some epiphany....I think the time's just right.  So for the past 4.5 months, I've been using to track my food and exercise Monday-Saturday (Sundays are my day of rest/free days).  I'm 28 pounds down and hoping to reach 35 pounds down by the end of the year.  It feels great (and I still have lots left to go!)

Here is a picture from Christmas 2011

 Just under 1.5 lbs a week, slow and safe :)  Not sure if you can see the difference, but I'll post updates as I continue.  I like the saying "A year from now, you'll wish you started today". 

I've been couponing as well-some great black friday sales including items I'll be wrapping for donations with the girls in my church youth group tonight.  Fun stuff :)
