Whew! It's been a long time! Have you missed me??

In all honesty, I am not sure if and or when I will ever seem to get back to blogging. I am in a very unique situation right now where Steve is working from home today and I have a break to blog.

Brett and Kaia keep me super busy these days...with Kaia crawling, I have to watch her like a hawk....and my internet access is pretty limited to my Blackberry...I'll check my Facebook on the BB, but really that's about it. No way am I going to try and type an email, let alone a blog, on that thing!

So in a few ways I've fallen off the face of the earth...

I have so much to post, so many pictures....Brett turned 3, we have professional pictures taken, Easter happened, Kaia started crawling, cut a tooth, had her 9 month appointment....and that's all that's just off the top of my head...

Unfortunately, those pictures are on the desktop computer and as Steve is working on it, I am on our laptop.

So, to the number at the top of my post...well, that ladies and gentlemen is a happy number that greeted me on the scale today. I did it, I broke back into the 120's...granted I'm not quite where I want to comfortable weight is between 120 - 125, but lots of hard work is paying off. I'm into a bunch of my old clothes...and after I shed about 5 more pounds I should be able to see the rest come out of storage.

That number also signifies why I haven't been blogging. I've been working out like a madwoman during naptime, and usually if I'd blog, it would be during naps. So something had to give.

I've publicly discussed my weight struggle before on here. I gained over 60 pounds when I was pregnant with Brett, didn't take it all off, put some of it back on before I got pregnant with Kaia and had a pregnancy wrought with gestational diabetes. I also felt like a whale the second time around.

So, as soon as I was able to, I started on the treadmill...and now I'm up to working out 6-7 days a week at home, 30-90 minutes a day either on the treadmill or doing workout DVD' budget and schedule doesn't allow for the gym, but I really prefer the convenience of this anyway. I'm also counting calories and still breastfeeding...which is the tricky part...but I think I've found the correct balance of working out and calories to still lose weight while supplying enough for my baby. It can be tricky! And, it's not been weight really WANTS to stick to your bones and holds on for dear life. But I am feeling better, and am able to keep up with my crazy kiddos better that I ever have before.

Anyway, just a quick synopsis of what's been going on in my life. This is the biggest break I've ever taken from blogging, and this blog is primarily dedicated to my kiddos, so I really need to get back and post about them. Hopefully soon :).
