New Years Eve

Today is New Years Eve and I am so ready for the New Year to come ringing in. Feeling much better after a few weeks of fighting something and a couple miserable days in bed I am glad to be almost back to normal.
Tonight Dallas is going to a party with his girlfriend, Elyse is going to a steak party then a group of friends are having a party she will be going to then spending the night. So Alan, Faith, Gabby and I will be ringing it in at home. Not sure if Alan and I can make it to midnight I think a nap will be in store to do it. I am so set into my routine of going to bed by 10:30 and up by no later than 5 it is hard to break. Plus I don't want to feel like garbage on the first day of the year.
I plan on working out in the morning and having a busy day of organizing, cooking and getting things accomplished that I wasn't able to earlier this week.
Several weeks ago my friend Janel over at Jenellybellys World brought to my attention of what changes I have made this year. Janel is the one who helped me in starting up my journey to a healthier me. She said she was thinking back on Nov. 2008 when she and I started talking about what I needed to do.
I don't want to sound like I am bragging but until I looked at the pictures did it really hit me that I have come a long way baby. So I thought I would share with you a few of before and after. WARNING!!!: SOME OF THESE PICTURES ARE VERY SCARY! I can't even believe I am posting them but here goes nothing: The one in the pink with the major muffin top was taken 1-1-09. The second one in the pink is the same shirt taken right around Thanksgiving of this year and the one in the burgundy blouse and great shoes is most recent.

The head shot in the gray was at the beginning of the year 2009. The one in the green was over summer and then in October.

I am so glad I had taken the steps to start this journey to better health. But guess what it isn't over! I have so much more to accomplish and now that I have made this start I am ready to go all the way. My goals or resolutions are set for this coming year and I am so excited about the changes to come. I will be busting my butt and maybe making a few people not so happy with me. But I gotta do what needs done.
Thank you Janel for your support and help in this. The boot camp gang especially my new friend Amy love working out & laughing with you. Xavier you just ROCK man. Hugs!! If you live in Arizona check into FunFit Boot Camp.
If you want to feel and see results it is so worth it.
2010 is the year for me to accomplish a life long dream that I might share a little later. I will be busy with school and my rules as a wife, mother and homemaker but I have to continue to take care of me and reach my DREAM!! That is my word for this year DREAM!
What is your word or dream for the year? Would love to hear them.
Love all of you wonderful blog friends and appreciate your blogs more than you will ever know. I know it has been tough for so many of us this past year but let's stay positive.
My best wishes to you and your families for a FANTASTIC 2010!! Let's GET R DONE!
