Finally Getting It Together!

I have a very long to-do list, but this week I've actually been getting stuff done.

I've been wanting to update my blog for months, I finally did it. For the most part, I used my Roxy! Kit. I had so much fun updating it. Do you guys like it? Would any of you be interested in Blog kits? I've been toying around with the idea of creating some for my store.

I've also been working a new kit. It's looking great, if I do say so myself. I've also been keeping myself busy with another artistic venture, but I'm not ready to share it with you just yet.

On a personal note: You may or may not know that I'm overweight. Before having my son I was VERY fit, but in the process of carrying a 10 pound baby I gained 75 pounds! I didn't even eat a lot of junk food, I craved Vanilla Almond Special K cereal 24 hours a day and I ate it with skim milk. I did however stop working out. I had really bad nausea my first trimester, then I just had an excuse to be lazy. I lost 25 pounds during the nine months I nursed him, since then I'll lose 10 or 15 pounds... then I'll gain it back. I know exactly why it is - I lose the weight by eating better then gain it back as soon as I start slipping. I have yet to set foot in a gym. Well, I decided enought is enough. I've walked eleven miles so far this week, all while pushing my 38 pound two year old in his stroller. I have an eight mile walk all planned out for us tomorrow. My plan is to make a habit of walking regularly during the next four weeks, I want to start jogging in August. I hope to be able to start running in September, then I'll join a gym once it gets too cold for me to have Ignacio (my son) ouside for that long. I'll update you on my progress... I need to hold myself accountable.

If you read this whole post - Thank You. I'll be back in the morning with a freebie for you. ;)
