A little bit about me

Hey all! Welcome to my first post! I think Monday's are a great day to start new things, so here I am starting a blog on Monday, hopefully starting a weightloss journey on a Monday... and next Monday I start school (again).  Right now I am just waiting for a friend to come over with her baby boy, and hopefully we can have some backyard play time.  I have the kiddy pool and chalk all ready to go!  I tried to find the sprinkler, but I think we lost that the second day after we bought it. 

We took my stepson out of day care for the summer so I will be watching him a couple days a week and he will be with his mom the other days.  Today, I get to watch him, hopefully he will want to play with us in the backyard. 

A little bit about myself.  I just got married on 11-11-11, and I am enjoying my first year as a wife and step mom.   My stepson is 8 years old, and going to be in 3rd grade in the fall.  Let me tell you, they grow up fast! I met him when he was 4 years old.. sweet little blond boy.  Now he seems all grown up, even though he is only 8.  I am anxious for him to get older and become more independant.  Hopefully in a couple years he will have some brothers and sisters, he will be an excellent role model for them.  We live in Minnesota, home of the Vikings, Twins, and snow.  We also have a cockapoo named Sadie, who just turned 3 today and is addicted to playing fetch!

I am a manager/bartender at a restaurant.  I have been doing this for 10 years... and now I am going back to school to become a nurse.  I already have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Family Consumer Science Eduation.  For those of you who know what that is... AWESOME!!! not a lot of people do... I went to school to be a HOME EC teacher :).  Obviously since I am going back to school, that didn't work out too well.. only because I am the kind of person that doesn't like to take work home, and I make just as much at a restaurant without all the stress.  I give teachers SO much credit with what they do, because I simply couldn't do it. 

This blog will hopefully help me not only relieve stress by writing about my life, but also help me become motivated to become healthier.  I am a hefty 223.4lbs.  biggest I have ever been.  (it doesn't help I get free food and free alcohol at my restaurant) My goal is 150.  I am not giving myself a time limit.  Right now, I just want to be accountable for what I am putting into my mouth and what I am/am not doing for exercize.  For example today I at 1/2 chocolate donut, slice of pizza, corn dog, and a special k bar. (its only 1:11pm) this is why I weigh 223.4... not good! It's time for a change. 

Well I think that is enough for now... it's time for some backyard fun!
