2012 Quarterly Update

Here it is, March. So far this year is not unlike last year. One change has been my work location at a new salon. Things are OK there, but I'm separated from the other girls and in a room by myself. I don't much care for that.

Another change is that I've been actively working out for all of this year so far....and LOVING it!
January I joined a boot camp fitness and by the end of the month knew it wasn't for me. I did manage to change my sleep and wake schedule to accommodate the early wake up, so now I just get up every day and work out at home. The changes in my body are slowly making their appearance and I have to keep reminding myself to be patient.

Along with the exercise routine, I decided that my diet needed an overhaul. January I just tried to watch my calories and carbs. Unfortunately I aways felt bloated and stuffed, yet still wanted to eat. In February I decided to try a vegetarian diet. Two weeks into it and I was thrilled with the way I felt. In doing some online searches, I learned about eating a raw vegan diet and wanted to give it a try. I've been eating raw ever since. I truly love it. I finally feel satisfied after a meal. I'm not constipated any more. I've noticed my face is slimmer and I'm no longer craving sugar.

This is my new Blendtec blender. It is perhaps the best purchase I've made this year. I have a big green smoothie for breakfast every day. YUMMY!

In just 5 days, Jared will be 16 years old. How did my baby grow up so fast? He got his drivers permit just last month, so he will still have to wait 5 more months to get his licence.
Oh yeah, he also got his braces off about a month ago. Ain't he cute?

Jacob finally got his drivers license. It's great because while he's visiting, we can have him run all the errands we don't want to. He seems to love it, but I'm sure he'll get tired of running around for us after awhile.

And lets not forget The Color Run back in January!
Here is Team Redrun Redrun  =  Me, Suzee, Jason, Olivia, Sarah, and Jim. It was a lot of fun. Jacob didn't get to run it, but he did get to be a color thrower.
Yes, he was in the green zone. The kid was covered from head to foot in green.
His feet were stained for quite a while.

Next Saturday on St Patrick's Day, Suzee and I are going to be doing the 4K Four Leaf Clover run at the Westgate Center. We are going to be wearing something fun and St Patty day themed. I'm looking forward to it.
