STOP THE PRESS! It is me (Dawn) and I am actually blogging. I think I might get this thing up and running again on a somewhat regular basis.

As I have said many times in the past, I hate how times goes by too fast. My youngest daughter, Harlie, is already approaching 8 months old!!! Yes, I said EIGHT MONTHS OLD!!! Lizzie will be FIVE in a few months and Chloe is 7 1/2. She is half way through her 1st grade year at a new school and loving it. J is doing great and has switched paths slightly and is an elementary P.E. teacher and no longer a coach at a jr. high. We see him a LOT more now and we love it.

As for me and my weight and exercise plan, the whole reason I started this blog in the very begininng, I have learned that I am queen of MAINTENANCE!! Which is actually a good thing only if I were already at my goal weight. I weigh the same today that I weighed 6 weeks after having Harlie. I have lost and gained the same 5 pounds for the past 7 months. GO FIGURE!

I have hardly exercised, randomly here and there. I have cleaned up my eating a lot but I do great for a few weeks then I do average for a week or two then I have several days that I just do awful and with that lack of consistency that equals maintenance!

So here is to a new year and a new fresh start. This time I mean it. My goal at this point is small, just to drop 5 pounds. Then I will set another mini-goal. The big picture is a little too overwhelming at the moment.

I promise to post more frequently for those that care to follow me and I also promise to post a recent picture of my precious girls as soon as I download them.

Hope all of you are doing well and are ready to meet your goals whatever they may be in 2012!
