Today was beautiful!

So today I woke up and the snow was falling outside. It was just beautiful. I got the kids ready for school, and hopped on my wii fit, and did some yoga and strength training along with some step. After about a little over an hour of working out, I decided to get dressed and walk outside. It was cold but a nice peaceful walk. I truly live in an area of "Winter Wonderland" By the time I was done with my hike treading through over a foot of snow at least another 6 inches had fallen. I was covered in melting icy snow, and my hair was frozen over, I didn't care it was amazing. I love the time I have to spend alone working out, it gives me time to just walk or run, or whatever with just my thoughts. I don't have anyone asking for something or wanting me for anything. It is great to have me time. Women especially moms I don't think give themselves enough "me" time. I am very lucky to have a hubby who gives me all the time I need for myself, well of course within moderation. I have been working out for 54 days not in a row of course I had a couple weeks where I was ill and such. Anyway I am down 20 lbs now. It feels so good to be able to fit in clothes that were too tight, or I just couldn't get into. It feels good knowing that I have begun a life change and that my kids are eating healthier that my whole family is. I have such great friends and great family that support me through it all, and I want to say thanks and I love you all so much!

Good for you to carve out exercise AND thinking time for yourself. Beautiful photos! I haven't seen you in a while---wonder if I'll recognize you with the weight loss and pink cheeks from your rejuninating walks! :0)
